Summary

"From firebrand to conservative, or something else entirely? Up from the Mission charts the life and thought of Noel Pearson, from his early days as a native title lawyer to his position today as one of Australia's most influential figures." "This is writing of great passion and power, which introduces a fascinating man and a compelling writer. Many of the pieces included have been hard to find until now. Gathered together in a cohesive, broadranging book, they show a key Australian thinker coming into being."--Back cover.
