    Robert Marsden Hope (1919–99), a
    NSW Supreme Court judge, shaped the structures, operations and doctrines of
    Australia’s intelligence agencies more than any other individual.


    Commissioned by three Prime Ministers to conduct
    major inquiries, including two royal commissions, Justice Hope prescribed the
    structures, legislation, operational doctrines, and national and international
    arrangements that would ensure Australia had agencies that were effective in
    countering threats to its security, while also being fully accountable to the
    government, the law and the parliament.





    Not just a biography on Hope, Law, Politics and
    Intelligence
    also makes an important contribution to the history of
    Australia’s environmental policies, adds significantly to the debate on judges
    acting as Royal Commissioners, and contains new insights into the appointment
    of High Court and Supreme Court judges, as well as the dismissal of the Whitlam
    Government.

    This landmark biography is a groundbreaking account of the life and times of a man who shaped the way our intelligence agencies have operated for four decades.
