Global Spin: The Corporate Assault on Environmentalism
by Sharon Beder

AVAILABILITY: Active Record (Readily Available)

Publication Date: September 2004
Publisher: Chelsea Green Publishing
Binding: Trade Paper

Description: Synopsis #1:Examines the way that corporations have used their financial resources and power to counter the gains made by environmentalists, to reshape public opinion, and to persuade politicians against increased environmental regulation. Fourteen chapters describe the methods used, including employing specialized PR firms, artificially created grassroots support for corporate causes, deterring public involvement, industry-funded research, and getting corporate-based 'educational' materials into schools. The author concludes that these manipulative spin techniques are actually threatening democracy, and that environmentalists must engage in the task of exposing corporate myths and methods of manipulation.
