Editorial Reviews


"A beautifully presented book of the plight of the Marshallese and life aboard the [original] Rainbow Warrior on what was to be its last voyage."
-- The Dominion (NZ)

"One of the iniquitous stories of the nuclear age." --New Internationalist (UK)

"A damning indictment of the nuclear powers, in particular the French and the Americans." --The New Zealand Times

"Robie's crisp narrative and excellent photographs give the reader a bird's eye view of the historic voyage." --Pacific Magazine (Hawaii)

From the Publisher

This moving book made a big impact internationally when it was first published with British (1986) and US (1987) editions following the original publication in New Zealand. It was described by the New Internationalist magazine (UK) as "one of the iniquitous tales of the nuclear age". The author spent 10 weeks on board the Rainbow Warrior. The new memorial edition has been redesigned and includes new sections and photos, plus a preface by Greenpeace NZ executive and original crew member Bunny McDiarmid and a postscript by the author. More than 60 photos, maps and cartoons are included.

Format: Paperback
David Robie's reporting on South Pacific indigenous struggles is second to none; his many books are testament to that. However, his understanding of the orgin story of the Rainbow Warrior in Chapter 1, is inaccurate.

I am the co-founder of Greenpeace UK, which became Greenpeace Europe, Greenpeace Council and then Greenpeace International and, with my co-director Denise Bell, we found and purchased an old fishing trawler named the Sir William Hardy. I named her the Rainbow Warrior, inspired by William Willoya and Vinson Brown's book of prophecies "Warriors of the Rainbow" that Greenpeace founder Bob Hunter (the 'star' of the recent internationally acclaimed documentary "How to Save the World") had given me. The iconic rainbow / dove meme now on every subsequent Rainbow Warrior incarnation's bow, was my interpretation of a Navajo painting in the book.

In Chapter 1, it is stated that the name Rainbow Warrior was inspired by Bob Hunter's book "Warriors of the Rainbow: A Chronicle of the Greenpeace Movement". However, that book was published in 1979 and I named the boat in 1978! David states in Chapter 1 "the myth grew that the book's title had influenced the naming of the ship; chronology was, however, against it". That is simply not true and many other books on the Rainbow Warrior, or Greenpeace history, corroborate the true story behind the ship's legendary name.

I feel it is important to accurately report this history as, when he gave me the book of prophecies, Bob Hunter said he was also passing on the mantel of Greenpeace Chronicler to me, in order to insure that I would safeguard our history for future generations. Just doing what you told me to do Bob! <3
