Truthteller

USD $17.99 Tax Included

An Investigative Reporter’s Journey Through the World of Truth Prevention, Fake News and Conspiracy Theories.

There is a war on truth. And the liars are winning. There is an increasingly large number of weapons in the arsenal of the rich, the powerful and the elected to prevent the truth from coming out — to bury it, warp it, twist it to suit their purposes. Truthteller reveals how governments and corporations have covered-up mass murder, corruption and catastrophe. In a world where Putin and Trump have successfully branded journalists as traffickers in fake news, while promoting the actual creators of fake news, an investigative reporter shows the tools that are used to deceive us and explains why they work. Using exclusive documents and interviews drawn from three decades as an award-winning reporter, editor, foreign correspondent, television producer, documentary filmmaker, and journalism educator, Stephen Davis reveals shocking details of deception in the United States, the UK, Russia, Sweden, the Baltic republics, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, the Arctic and Antarctic.

Keepers of History

The first 100 copies have been signed by author Renée Hollis!

New Zealand Centenarians Tell Their Stories.

In 2017, Renée Hollis interviewed 120 people over the age of 100, living in every region of New Zealand. Along the way she met opera singers and farmers, a politician and a racing car driver, a nun and a freedom fighter with Gandhi, and even a member of Hip Operation — the oldest hip-hop group in the world! Her goal in compiling the book was to preserve New Zealand history by sharing the stories and memories of our eldest citizens. She wants all people to value the elderly and to read and appreciate their stories and contribution to our society. Most importantly, she wants to ensure that that they are not forgotten and do not become invisible in our communities, but instead are honoured and celebrated. From the everyday to the extraordinary, these are the stories of people who have lived through history and whose message of resilience has so much to offer the generations that have followed.
