THIS volume of essays provides a committed overview of the life of the extraordinary Aotearoa New Zealand peace campaigner and co-founder of the Campaign Against Foreign Control of Aotearoa, Owen Wilkes. Drawing on contributions by those who knew him and co-edited by his long-time partner, May Bass, who was for many years editor of Peacelink, it tells the somewhat complicated -- and ultimately tragic --- story of his life.
