"After four years in power, Stephen Harper's governance comes under the microscope of prominent Globe and Mail columnist Lawrence Martin. Focusing on the growth of executive power under Harper and drawing on interviews with prominent insiders, Martin probes the smearing of opponents, the silencing of the public and diplomatic service, the secrecy, the prorogations, the unprecedented centralizing of power, and the attempted muzzling of the media. He examines controversies such as the existence of a secret dirty-tricks handbook, the Chuck Cadman affair, campaign financing, the dismissal of nuclear power head Linda Keen, the Afghan detainees cover-up, the turning of access-to-information laws into barricades to information, and more-and lets readers draw their own conclusions. Tough but balanced, Harperland offers a clear picture of a skilled politician at a crucial point in Canadian politics."--Pub. desc

Harperland : the politics of control by Lawrence Martin( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harperland: The Politics of Control examines Stephen Harper's first four years in power. Soarking to the top of the best-seller lists in its first week, Peter C. Newman called it "A book of revelations ... This is Stephen Harper unplugged." Don Martin of The National Post declared it an excellent book providing insights the Prime Minister could well learn from. In Harperland, prominent Globe and Mail columnist Lawrence Martin assesses Harper's governance, focusing on the growth of executive power under Harper. Through interviews with prominent insiders, Martin probes the smearing of opponents, the silencing of the public and diplomatic service, the secrecy, the prorogations, the unprecedented centralizing of power, and muzzling of the media. He looks at controversies - the secret dirty-tricks handbook, the Chuck Cadman affair, campaign financing, the dismissal of nuclear power head Linda Keen, the Afghan detainees cover-up, the turning of access-to-information laws into barricades to information - and lets readers draw their own conclusions. Tough but balanced, Harperland offers a clear picture of a skilled politician at a crucial point in Canadian politics

Sir John's echo : the voice for a stronger Canada by John Boyko( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Power: It means the capacity to encourage and inspire, and it matters. When handled in a positive way, power is the key to the state's ability to strengthen the nation and improve lives. But state power, John Boyko argues forcefully, works best when concentrated on a federal level, as Sir John A. Macdonald and the other founders intended. Provincial governments are essential, tending to local matters and sometimes acting as incubators for ideas that grew to become national programs. But in fighting for scraps of power, premiers have often distracted from and occasionally hindered national progress. It is the federal government, as Boyko explains, that has been the primary force in nation-building and emergency response, and is the only entity with the authority to speak for all Canadians. The national parliament, Sir John's echo, must be recognized as Canada's only voice."--

Fighters or Freighters: United States Troop Carrier Aviation 1941-1945 by Lawrence Martin( )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the Second World War in Europe, U.S. Army Air Force (AAF) troop carrier units filled a dual role transporting the Army's airborne assault force and carrying theater cargo. Though the Americans had paid little attention to airborne warfare before 1940, German operations convinced Army leaders to create airborne units. AAF troop carrier groups initially lacked aircraft, a shortage that delayed the development of airborne operational expertise until after assaults in North Africa, Sicily, and Italy. After D-Day's airborne missions, Allied ground commanders could not meet their supply needs due to transportation shortfalls and turned to troop carrier assets
