Brief review by

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

"I felt compelled to sign the petition because I think it's a continuing travesty of justice. It's quite extraordinary that the minister (Phil Goff) is so determinedly turning his back on the evidence ... We all feel that he's either been given extremely bad advice, which the book completely contradicts, or there is some other reason. "Lynley has done something in this book which anyone who reads it will realise is really beyond discussion any more ... I'm just one of those who feels deeply uncomfortable."
