Description:  Book: “Bob Burton is committed to helping community groups striving for social and environmental justice to understand the influence of the public relations industry – by helping to expose industry front groups, spin served up as media, corporate-sponsored think tanks and government-industry collusion. A tireless and meticulous researcher, Bob is known for his significant and ongoing contribution to and Bob’s latest, Inside Spin includes case studies of recent controversies in public policy ranging from the South Australian state government’s attempt to fast-track a controversial proposal for a nuclear waste dump to the tactics of the corporate-funded Institute of Public Affairs to strip advocacy groups of their charitable tax status. A must-read if you’re sensing you’re being out-manoeuvred in your public communication efforts. It’s definitely worth knowing how spin can be used by government and industry to defend unpopular policies and practices.”
