He was one of two finalists for the 2003 J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize, which cited The Culture of Make Believeas "a passionate and provocative meditation on the nexus of racism, genocide, environmental destruction and corporate malfeasance, where civilization meets its discontents." He writes for The New York Times Magazine, Audubon, and The Sun Magazine among many others. He is an environmental activist and lives on the coast of northern California. George Draffan is a forest activist, public interest investigator, and corporate muckraker. He is the author of The Elite Consensus, A Primer on Corporate Power, and co-author of Railroads & Clearcuts.

Some of his work can be found at Endgame, a project of the Public Information Network (www.endgame.org).
