Bain Attwood and Andrew Markus document the circumstances behind the most significant moments in Cooper's political career - his famous 1933 petition to King George V, his call for a 'Day of Mourning' in 1938, the walk-off from Cummeragunja in 1939 and his opposition to an Aboriginal regiment in 1939.
