Both a thrilling courtroom drama and a fearless work of investigative journalism, A Question of Power tells the story of the trial that found Geoff Clark guilty, as well as its aftermath. Clark was once regarded as the most powerful Aboriginal man in Australia. Michelle Schwarz goes back to his home town and tracks his early life. She interviews all the key players in the case, from Clark and his lawyers to the women involved and the key media players. Schwarz weaves all of this material into the compelling story of a man who spent his life gaining power only to be found guilty of the ultimate abuse of power.
