Kim Workman ((of Ngati Kahungunu and Rangitaane descent) is a central figure in the ongoing discussion of justice and prison policy in New Zealand.

This illustrated memoir presents his rich narrative of a life lived through periods of personal and political change and upheaval. It tells his remarkable story: from early years growing up in the Wairarapa to working as a police officer during the 1960s and 70s, from his public service roles that included being head of prisons in the early 1990s to his emergence as a passionate advocate for radical justice reform. Workman’s story is fascinating and insightful, but above all it is honest, dealing with struggle, spirituality and questions of cultural identity.
