This is an auction for BLACKBALL 08 by Ken Beardsley.

"Eric Beardsley’s novel is the most widely read account of the Blackball strike. He stuck closely to the historic account, but put a human face to the strike. Trade union leader Andrew Little remembered what a big impression it made on him: “My first education into trade union history in New Zealand”. The story that Beardsley tells is centred around Patrick Hickey, who we now realise was a great propagandist, and tended to place himself at the centre of events. It's very interesting to contrast this account with the recent research by Brian Wood. What makes this a great read is to realise that the unionists – Pat Hickey, Paddy Webb, and Bob Semple – were individuals, with slightly different aims, who worked together when it suited them, and were prepared to manipulate the local community when it suited them."
