Deadly Disclosures, Dr William de Maria, Wakefield Press, South Australia, 1999 (provides case studies which show bullying by toxic organisations and the government of people who disclose issues in the public interest. Also outlines the characteristics of toxic organisations, the "bullying" process as it relates to whistleblowers, including the "organisational vendetta" aimed at removing the whistleblower from the workplace and in some cases results in trumped-up charges of breaches of ethics or even criminal charges against the whistleblower. Often "whistleblowers" are merely doing their job or standing up for their beliefs - and pay a high price.)
