About this title

Synopsis:

Rare, romantic, and forever: The diamond industry depends on these myths to reap billions of dollars of profit. This sensational investigation explodes such fallacies and reveals how multimillion-dollar advertising campaigns create the impression of rarity and romance. It reveals a very secret and unromantic world, one that is dominated and controlled by a handful of mighty corporations.

With Leonardo DiCaprio's movie The Blood Diamond making more people than ever aware of the seamy side of the diamond trade, Janine Roberts' explosive exposé, taking us through seven decades of intrigue and manipulation, is the right book at the right time.

Review:

"Janine Roberts is that rare individual who unflinchingly speaks truth to power. She battles her way past all the obstacles and provides us a glimpse of those who are in the innermost circles of global power. But instead of being seduced by their power and wealth, she exposes what they do and how they do it and how it comes to hurt us all.


She has hunted down the shady dealers of the diamond cartel and of DeBeers, itself. She reveals here for the first time the disturbing secrets of the individuals, governments, and corporations that have ruled the diamond world for the past one hundred years.


Read and get ready to defy conventional wisdom that no one really cares enough to challenge business as usual in the diamond world. For after reading 'Glitter and Greed', you will be compelled to act. Africans should mine, cut, polish, market, distribute, manufacture, and export the jewelry that originates upon its shores in much the same way that France controls its wine production and the United States controls its defense technology."


--Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney
