Amongst Roger’s publications are:

“Rocks and Hard Places : The Globalization of Mining”. The world of international mining is changing rapidly. Mineral consumption is outstripping the capabilities of both communities and fragile ecosystems to cope with bigger and bigger mines. Moody shows that mining can impact severely on local communities, ways of life and the environment. This key book concludes with urgent proposals to control multinationals in a sector that is at the core of resource exploitation.

“The Gulliver File: Uranium Mining Industry [Hardcover]”. This is a study of the world of mining – a book born from the experience of numerous environmental, anti-nuclear and indigenous groups, concerned about the negative impact of huge mineral mining projects. The book has profiles of more than 650 companies worldwide, including full details of their ultimate ownership and their subsidiaries and detailed information on hundreds of mining prospects – along with full accounts of resistance to them.
