Cohen came to international attention when he was photographed hanging onto the bow of a US nuclear-armed warship in Sydney Harbour in protest against the nuclear arms race.  Cohen, the first Green member of the N.S.W Parliament, looks back over sixteen years of radical environmentalism. Cohen tells it as it was on the ground, at protests such as the 1982 Nightcap Forest campaign, the Franklin River blockade, Roxby Downs uranium mine protests, Daintree, the Chaelundi old growth forest campaign in northern NSW and the campaign to end French nuclear testing in the South Pacific. Here is a gripping, powerful and insightful account of the Australian environmental protest movement, a moment which has transformed Australian politics. Illustrated with black and white photographs.
