10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Brit Bunkley on December 25, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book (called the "The Book that Brought Down Brash" by the national newspaper the Star-Times) caused such a stir with New Zealand politics it was said that the head of the local right wing party, the National Party resigned in order to avoid being implicated in a number of alleged scandals on election spending.

The book was published a year after the 2005 election, one of the most controversial - and according to many, corrupt elections in New Zealand history. Even after extensive media damage control, the first edition was sold out before its release in my city.

Bob Garfield, host of the US based "On the Media" said that this book - using stolen emails for many of its allegations - was comparable to the Pentagon papers. After reading this well sourced book, it is clear that the allegations of Labour corruption pale in comparison to their major competitor; it is essential reading for anyone interested in New Zealand politics, or political corruption in general.

Format: Paperback
Americans are used to corporate lobbyists masterminding US elections and domestic and foreign policy decisions. As a relative newcomer to New Zealand (I emigrated 8 years ago), I'm sure the same kind of corporate interference occurs in New Zealand all the time. However to my knowledge Nicky Hager is the first investigative journalist to clearly document how malignant international corporate entities tried to rig the 2005 NZ elections. As a long term single payer activist, I was particularly alarmed to learn that powerful insurance companies (eager to see New Zealand's national health service privatized - in order to create a new market here for private health insurance) were key players.

Interestingly much of the book is based on leaked emails and policy papers from National Party supporters who were very unhappy about the secret meetings and deals they were privy to. I am happy to see there are a number of used copies available and would strongly recommend the book to single payer advocates. They need to know the reach of powerful US insurance giants extends well beyond US shores.
