            The Secret Life of Kim Dotcom: Spies, Lies and the War for the Internet
             

            The Secret Life of Kim Dotcom: Spies, Lies and the War for the Internet (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Fisher, David

            "From a lonely boy's bedroom in Germany to the penthouses of Hong Kong, from Wellington's Beehive to Washington's corridors of power, from the sedate suburb of Coatesville to the motor racing tracks of Europe, this is the untold story of the charismatic internet tycoon who has dr...iven governments to distraction while winning the affection of internet users worldwide and a large number of the New Zealand public. It recounts not only the high profile political and legal battles but also the behind the scenes domestic life of a man who has more wealth than he can spend in New Zealand and who once escaped to Europe for winter - and took his cars and furniture with him. Written by David Fisher, who has covered the story from the start for the New Zealand Herald , and who won the 2013 Reporter of the Year award in part for his coverage of the story, the book is not an authorised biography but has been written with the full co-operation of Kim Dotcom, who granted the author hours of exclusive interviews. The book also reveals: why Hollywood is obsessed with Dotcom; why he and wife Mona decided to settle in New Zealand; the full story of the dawn raid; what happened to Dotcom in jail; the truth about John Banks and Dotcom; and where The Hobbit comes into it"--Back cover.

            In his new book Noam Chomsky writes cogently about the threats to planetary survival that are of growing alarm today. The prospect of human extinction emerged after World War II, the dawn of a new era scientists now term the Anthropocene, a time of possible human extinction. Chom...sky uniquely traces the duality of threats from nuclear weapons and from climate change-including how the concerns emerged and evolved, and how the threats can interact with one another. The introduction and accompanying interviews place this dual threat in a framework of unprecedented corporate global power domination that has overtaken nation states' ability to control the future and preserve the planet. Chomsky argues for the urgency of international climate and arms agreements, showing how global popular movements are mobilizing to force governments to meet this unprecedented challenge to civilization's survival.
