The Rebel Who Challenged and Changed A NationDAISY - 2011
John Boyko offers the first major biography of the man and a fresh perspective on the old scholarship. He looks at the prime minister's sometimes controversial and misunderstood policies through a longer lens, one that shows not a politician angling for votes, but rather a man following through on a life-long dedication to a greater role for government in society and the economy. Nearly every other Canadian prime minister finds their way into the analysis, with Bennett’s beliefs and actions measured against theirs. The result is a political biography as current as today’s headline. Meticulously researched, this stands among other first-class biographies of this country’s political greats. As Canada faces its worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, Bennett’s is a life and a career that deserves contemplation. c2010.
