Title: Man for All Seasons : The Life and Times of Ken Douglas
Description: New Zealand, Random House. 2010, First Edition. (ISBN: 1869793897) Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 'Ken Douglas was raised in a hardworking, tough-talking, union-focussed Wellington family and got into union politics as a very young working man. Hard-nosed, pragmatic and never scared of a scrap, he rose through the ranks, got deeper into left-wing ideology and activity with his membership of the Socialist Unity Party, and ultimately became head of the FOL, and the most powerful unionist in the land. Depending on your politics, he was one of the most respected or the most hated men in the country; ironic then that in later years he was appointed to some of the country's most important boards. In this powerful biography, David Grant - who had unprecedented access to Douglas - explores the facets of this remarkable man, who was there during the union movement's most powerful days and watched its emasculation.' CONDITION 493 pages with photo plates. Cover are fold back French flaps (unworn) copy is bright and crisp as new. Overweight #New Zealand Biography#. As New/N/A.
