about this item
Pierre Trudeau and his contemporaries at home and abroad are now mostly dead. This book offers reflections on Canadian foreign, trade, and defence policies from interviews with many of the key policy makers, diplomats, and military officers in the Trudeau government. Conducted more than three decades ago, the interviews are informative and revealingly frank. They also offer personal insights into Trudeau himself – a man of great “esprit,” who often embodied contradiction. A priceless resource, this book adds immeasurably to our understanding of the Trudeau era. It also has much to tell us about Canada and the world from 1968 to 1984.
