With livelihoods, families and identities under siege, all must choose where their loyalties lie.
As the effects of Rogernomics begin their historic shaking of New Zealand’s economic stability, relationships and beliefs are tested. Sisters are estranged, union executives are attacked, past ill-fated love affairs are revealed and others begin.
‘A Striking Truth’ is one of the stories born from an important stage of New Zealand’s political development, that still reverberate around the nation today.
“This is a great book. I couldn’t put it down and devoured it in a single session. The story is about a special time in New Zealand’s working class history that deserves to be remembered and celebrated. This book does that.”
– Mike Treen. National Director, Unite Union
