Inside Spin: The Dark Underbelly of the PR Industry.
Burton, Bob.
ISBN: 9781741752175
Allen & Unwin Sydney 2007 
  Paperback small octavo, very good condition. 313 pp. Corporate and government spin doctors invisibly influence just about every news story we read, see and hear. Perhaps even more significant is what they manage to keep out of the news altogether. The Australian journalist and investigator peers inside the hidden world of corporate and government spin to reveal the extraordinary impact of the PR industry. He illuminates the hardball and soft tactics used by PR companies to smother dissenting viewpoints, mask sponsors, attack corporate competitors and influence politicians. Through a series of detailed case studies from both private and public sectors, he shows just how much PR controls what we see, hear and think about the organisations that manage our society.

  Hardback dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket), colour photos, folded corner one page. 352 pp. An incisive, hard-hitting and utterly compelling exposure of media, powerful mates and multimillion-dollar deals. The inside story of the decline of hallowed media company Fairfax, publisher of The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and The Australian Financial Review. Covers 15 years of lost opportunity and mismanagement, this story culminates in Fairfax's catastrophic loss of the classified advertising market to the internet, as the famous 'rivers of gold' run dry. the savage twist in the tale is that the new companies dominating the online advertising market were not just hungry internet start-ups - but one by one, each of the new leaders in the field came under the direct influence of two traditional media tycoons, James Packer and Lachlan Murdoch, both intent on expanding their own online businesses. With exclusive and unprecedented access to both Murdoch and Packer, as well as an extraordinary line-up of Australian business leaders and influential powerbrokers, this is a powerful insiders' story of the deals, the power plays and the machinations behind the influential media organisation's decline.

That Damned Democrat; John Norton, an Australian Populist, 1858-1916

Melbourne Univ Pr, Carlton South Vic, Austria, 1980. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Good/Very Good. First Edition. 500 g; VIII, 184 pages, last six pages blank, indexed, chapter notes, numerous articles reproduced along with line drawing illustrations. Coloured illustrated dust jacket. Slight grubby mark on the half title page, otherwise in very good order. This impartial biography of a passionate man and his works and manages to separate fact from the fantasies which Norton enjoyed weaving around his origins, motives and activities. The result is a succinct, compelling story of an extraordinary character he used radical journalism and politics to achieve personal goals, doing much good and some harm along the way. A "Norton anthology" gives entertaining examples of the type of journalism which made Norton idolized by large sections of the working class but hated and feared by most conventional people. This is not the whole voice of radicalism in Australia's earlier years. But it is an important, neglected and greatly misunderstood part of a history. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.

Sissman ranked with Liebling and Mencken, who Geoffrey Wolff said "is bringing his work to levels that have no measurable limit," who has been called "a master craftsman" so many times that it is pointless to number them. Reading creases on the spine, age toning of the rear panel, and pencil note & signature on the inside of the rear cover. Otherwise no damage to describe.
