A short but enjoyable and, most importantly, unbiased essay on the modern issues around politics.
I totally enjoyed this gem. Long time since I have had a review of our history, now I am looking for more!
I agree with ghreads below.
This is a thoughtful and interesting analysis of the current state of Canadian politics. It is non-partisan in its historical references but is very critical of the current Conservative government under Steven Harper. Rae lays much of the blame for today’s political problems squarely at the feet of Mr. Harper. The book also contains brief histories, showing how things were once different and what we have lost.
There are 6 chapters, each addressing a different component of the political system: politics, leadership, policy, Aboriginal peoples, democracy, Canada in the world. Rae concludes with a description of his vision for our country.
The book is quite well written and well organized. At only 139 pages, it is a quick and very worthwhile read describing where Canada has been, where it is now and why, and where it could go if we revitalize our political system. Highly recommended.
