"Book lovers never go to bed alone"
The true story of Australia’s vast mineral wealth and the men and companies digging in the dirt to get it.
This is not a dry business book. This is a story of a greed that has defined a nation. It takes us from the earliest mining scams and scandals to the pollution of the present day. It is a story of how communities in Australia and across the world have risen up to fight for their land. And it tells how rich men in boardrooms in major Australian cities thousands of kilometres away have forged dirty deals to sweep them aside. It tells us just who those men are and what drives them.
Newspaper and television reports merely scratch the surface. The true story of Australia’s mining industry needs to be told dramatically and in full. Matthew Benns is a freelance journalist and has written exclusive stories on the mining industry. He is also the author of The Men Who Killed Qantas.
