A City Possessed:
The Christchurch Civic Creche Case
by Lynley Hood.
Publisher: Longacre Press 2001

An extraordinary book that cannot be ignored. With great tenacity, Hood leads us to an understanding of how the events in Christchurch could have occurred. The courage of Dr Hood in pursuing the book’s publication has given us a narrative that, for all its controversy, makes it a stand-out not just in this year but in any year.
