Synopsis

Synopsis

Published on the 30th anniversary of Trudeau's coming to power, this fascinating collection of twenty-three original, eclectic essays offers a fresh perspective on the life and legacy of our country's fifteenth prime minister. The contributors, all Canadian - historians, journalists, philosophers, playwrights, novelists, and former politicians - survey Trudeau as part of the Canadian political tradition, but also as lover, outdoorsman,    communicator, and cultural icon.
