HATS off to Dr Sharon Beder of Wollongong University whose book, Power Play, The Fight for Control Of The World's Electricity, will be launched next month. Published by Scribe, it is a rip-roaring tale of the privatisation of electricity which has seen power rationing in Brazil, blackouts from California to New York to South Australia and Buenos Aires, mass protests in India, Africa and across Latin America and the collapse of Enron, the seventh largest company in America. An ideal gift for Utilities Minister Frank Sartor who is a privatisation fan.
