    The Life and Times of Ken Douglas
    Biography of Ken Douglas, the most powerful union leader in modern New Zealand history.Ken Douglas was raised in a hardworking, tough - talking, union - focussed Wellington family and got into union politics as a very young working man. Hard - nosed, pragmatic and never scared of a scrap, he rose through the ranks, got deeper into left - wing ideology and activity with his membership of the Socialist Unity Party, and ultimately became head of the FOL, and the most powerful unionist in the land. Depending on your politics, he was one of the most respected or the most hated men in the country; ironic then that in later years he was appointed to some of the country's most important boards. In this powerful biography, David Grant - who had unprecedented access to Douglas - explores the facets of this remarkable man, who was there during the union movement's most powerful days and watched its emasculation. It is a unique portrait of a unique New Zealander, whose life has been this country's times.
