Currently Reading - A Question of Power, Michelle Schwarz

A Question of Power - The Geoff Clark Case is a book on the story of a man who spent his life gaining power only to be accused of its ultimate abuse.

From the Blurb:

Geoff Clark was once the most powerful Aboriginal man in Australia.  As chairman of ATSIC, he was at the pinnacle of his career when, in 2001, newspaper reports revealed that four women accused him of rape.  The crimes they described were brutal - but the claims, dating back to the 1970s, were difficult to test.

In A Question of Power, Michelle Schwarz interviews the key players in the case:  Clark, the women who accused him, their respective supporters and lawyers.  She digs deep to show the story behind the case and explores the hard questions it raises.
