This acclaimed book is an insider's comprehensive account, written for the non-lawyer, by the plaintiffs' counsel, Dr. Bryan Keon-Cohen AM QC. He recounts Eddie Mabo's motivations, the Murray Islanders and their culture; lawyers and judges involved; legal aid hassles; set-backs during trial; repeated attacks by Bjelke-Petersen's government; Mabo's premature death; final success in the High Court, and the case's legacy. Published in 2011, the first edition is sold out. This revised, re-named version includes text of 600 pp, footnotes, photographs, court and personal documents, a chronology, appendices, bibliography and a detailed new Index. "... a wonderful story in human terms, it is an important story in legal terms, and most significantly, it is a very important story for the integrity of Australia as a just nation." - The Hon Justice Michael Kirby, AC CMG
