The Seven Days of My (difficult) Creation

by Janine Roberts

just published 2006

This is my personal story of what made me a campaigning investigative journalist and film-maker - hopefully a frank and honest account of the evolution of my ideas and spirit, of gender and sexuality, of how I survived many battles, brought up children, sorted myself out and tried to achieve some wisdom.

I tell of what has inspired and sustained me, made me crazy enough to take on major corporations and governments - and to write poetry, and keep doing it for over 30 years. I write in this book not so much about the struggles of the Aboriginal nations, with whom I lived and worked for 15 years, but more about how this time enriched and taught me. Nowadays between advantures I love living as a hermit on a tossing and creaking hundred-year-old wooden boat that I have restored with my own hands - while writing and letting other adventures arrive in my life.

(It adds to Glitter and Greed - for it includes the story of my first encounter with small whitish pebbles called diamonds and of my subsequent dealings with De Beers and the diamond trade - as well as of an ensuing fight with the BBC that scandelously involved all its top people and Nicky Oppenheimer of De Beers.)



This book is available directly from the author signed - or not signed as you prefer. - 370 pages - indexed.

It is also available from Amazon and from all the top online bookstores. The US cover price is (US) $19.95 - the UK cover price £15.95

BUT from me the book is discounted for everyone.

The discounted online price from me direct is the same for those paying in US dollars or in UK pounds - or in the many other currencies accepted by PayPay:

The standardized price from me is US$ 18.95 or the equilivalent in other currencies - at this moment in UK pounds it will be about £10 a copy - a great reduction.

it is my favourite and best bit of work - or so I think !

How diamond mining and cutting is killing diamond workers by wrecking their lungs.

Special December 2006 illustrated Report by Janine Roberts on a hidden and totally frightening danger to diamond miners and cutters - a danger that may well have killed hundreds totally unnecessarily as dust control measures are readily available.

Read how diamond miners are unnecessarily falling cripplingly ill with silicosis, asbestosis and TB - all because of unsuppressed dust in diamond mines and gem-cutting workshops or factories.

This is urgent - lives are at stake - and we need action - so this is free - but donations of course always very welcome - as we have no regular income - all you give will go into campaigning.

If you are paying via Pay Pal -

Pay Pal will now email me telling me you have paid - and send me your mailing address. I then send you by airmail the CDs and books you have ordered .

The film is on a CD (not a DVD), it is feature length and made to high professional standards - it was well reviewed in the New York Times. It can be watched on nearly all computers - using any of the free and widely available programs Realplayer, Windows Media Player or Quicktime. It is available for a special price bundled with the book. The book is supplied as an Acrobat Ebook - readable and printable using the widely available free program Acrobat Reader. If you have not got this program, you can download it below for free.

Please note the edition of the diamond book sold here is a much up-dated version - so somewhat different from the samples currently available online which are from the 2000 electonic edition. The film is as transmitted in the US except that it has been very slightly shortened to allow it to fit onto the CD Rom. This meant omiting some initial glamour shots.
