Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Nordmeyer, Kirk and Rowling successively led the Labour Party from April 1963 until February 1983. During that time they contested seven general elections and won only one. The theme of many contributors to this book is that had it been otherwise, New Zealand might have been a better place. Contributors to this book include fellow Labour politicians as well as scholars and civil servants. Together they paint a complex picture of the three men with their strengths and talents. This readable collection offers fascinating detail and insight into two decades of New Zealand's political history.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
