' ... a short book of about 18,000 words that, in its own terms, does not seek to break new ground, 'but rather to provide a readily accessible introduction to the story of Evatt and the United Nations' (p. 67). It does this in an orderly and readable way, and on the whole is even-handed in dealing with the complexities of its subject.' -- Brian Galligan * Labour History *
'In succinct accounts, seasoned by secondary corroboration, Hogan conveys the complexity and magnitude of the issues with which Evatt dealt in his prominent association with the United Nations - over Palestine, for example, and the emerging doctrine of human rights.' -- Nicholas Brown * History Australia *
