AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Dealing with the author's opposition to the Vietnam War and the issues of conscription and conscientious objection, One Wooden Marble, is a story about Australia's 'death lottery' in the late- 1960s, when young men were balloted to fight in Vietnam. But, whilst it is set during that period, it is a novel for our times, a parable of the corrupting influence of power that shows how far Christianity has turned from Christ and from faith and courage to love.' (Publisher's blurb)
