DESCRIPTION

After big business suffered several spectacular media defeats, from the Mclibel suit where McDonalds won the suit but lost the war, to Monsanto’s underestimation of resistance to genetically modified organisms, corporations are fighting back. Hard. From surveillance to legal suits, from lobbyists crafting laws to PR groups’ greenwashing crimes Battling Big Business reveals how corporate giants attempt to control their "enemies"—and how groups and individuals can fight back.

Contributors include Naomi Klein, George Monbiot, Sharon Beder, Andy Rowell and Eveline Lubbers.

Eveline Lubbers is an investigative reporter and activist living in Amsterdam. She co-founded the Jansen & Janssen Bureau to monitor police and secret services. She has produced books on corporate intelligence and PR strategies of multinationals against their critics, subjects mainly in Dutch.
