Description - Lionel Murphy by Jenny Hocking
Jenny Hocking's political biography of Australian attorney, politician and High Court judge Lionel Murphy created a sensation when it was first published in 1997. The book forced a reinterpretation of Murphy's considerable legal, social and political legacy. Now available in paperback, this new version includes an epilogue in which Hocking reassesses Murphy's place in the recent political and legal landscape in the light of further controversies. She argues that a long and influential career should not be obscured by the traumatic years before his death nor the media sensationalism since. The release of this important paperback edition comes with a Foreword by Justice Michael Kirby, who reflects thoughtfully on Murphy's career at the High Court.
