Stephen Harper and the future of Canada by William Johnson ( Book )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There has never been a book about Stephen Harper, yet on June 28 he came close to being our prime minister. If Paul Martin miscalculates, Stephen Harper could be our next prime minister in months, not years. Who is this man' Everyone knows that he became leader of the Alliance Party and, against all odds, gathered in the old Conservative Party to create a force designed to win power, coming very close in 2004. Yet what are his core beliefs' To what extent does he agree with his party's social conservatives, who scared away voters in the last election' Where will he take us if he gets power' William Johnson has researched the Harper family background and the historical context that shaped his political career. He paints a fascinating picture of a man who, like Pierre Trudeau, trained mentally for political power like an athlete training for the Olympics, yet is not a natural politician and never really wanted the political leader's life. By studying Harper's approach to the main issues in Canadian politics, he shows that Harper is a sophisticated political operative, far more complex and intellectual than the right-wing Republican image that has been created for him. This is a serious, objective political biography, short on gossip but long on clear discussion of Harper's political views ' and how he got them. Johnson's message' Don't underestimate this man.

Young Trudeau : 1919-1944 by Max Nemni ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book shines a light of devastating clarity on French-Canadian society in the 1930s and 1940s, when young elites were raised to be pro-fascist, and democratic and liberal were terms of criticism. The model leaders to be admired were good Catholic dictators like Mussolini, Salazar in Portugal, Franco in Spain, and especially PEtain, collaborator with the Nazis in Vichy France. There were even demonstrations against Jews who were demonstrating against what the Nazis were doing in Germany. Trudeau, far from being the rebel that other biographers have claimed, embraced this ideology. At his elite school, BrEbeuf, he was a model student, the editor of the school magazine, and admired by the staff and his fellow students. But the fascist ideas and the people he admired ' even when the war was going on, as late as 1944 ' included extremists so terrible that at the war's end they were shot. And then there's his manifesto and his plan to stage a revolution against les Anglais. This is astonishing material ' and it's all demonstrably true ' based on personal papers of Trudeau that the authors were allowed to access after his death.What they have found has astounded and distressed them, but they both agree that the truth must be published. Translated from the forthcoming French edition by William Johnson, this explosive book is sure to hit the headlines. From the Trade Paperback edition
