In this lively accessible book, barrister and free speech advocate Brian Walters describes eight cases where defamation laws and even the Trade Practices Act - have been used in an attempt to silence critics of development. From the Victorian seaside town of Lorne to Hichinbrook Island in North Queensladn, the threat of legal action has created fear and often silence, among conservationists and community activists.
