H B Higgins is best known as the pioneer of social justice and the maker of the Harvester Judgement on minimum wages. He was a controversial public figure marked by a stubborn pursuit of unpopular causes. A radical lawyer who opposed the Constitution, an upper-middle-class hero of the labour movement and Protestant supporter of the Irish cause.
This biography focuses not just on the public figure, but also the private man, from the delicate son of an Irish preacher to the grieving father who lost his only child in the great war.
