Summary

This book exposes the passion and courage of the man behind the public face and reveals how a childhood growing up in a fringe camp on the outskirts of Cunnamulla in south-west Queensland, fired his determination to fight for human rights. On a journey marked by controversy, he has advanced from one legal battle to another.

In the 1990'2 Hagan's fortunes went from enjoying the heady company of Queensland political powerbrokers to a spectacular fall from grace and desperate attempts to clear his name of legal charges. He later came up against his own people while championing the cause for accountability and transparency in publicly-funded organisations.
