How the Fathers Made A Deal

Audiobook CD - 2012
Rate this:
Historian Christopher Moore has taken up the challenge in this book, which he describes as the least sentimental book ever written about the Fathers of Confederation -- a 1990s book about the 1860s. From the first chapter, which begins "In the 1860s, western alienation began at Yonge Street, and George Brown was the Preston Manning of the day", he turns a fresh, perceptive, and lucid eye on the people, issues, and political theories of Confederation -- from John A. Macdonald's canny handling of leadership, to the invention of Federalism and the Senate, from the Quebec question, to the influence of political philosophers Edmund Burke and Walter Bagehot.
