Review
“[Southam’s] observations on Trudeau . . . are intimate, arresting, funny and deeply affecting. They and so many others here reveal a humanity and vulnerability which only those closest to him could see behind the cerebral, ascetic, stoic public man.”
— Andrew Cohen, Globe and Mail

“Lavishly illustrated and easy to peruse, Pierre is grist for the mill for readers who revere Canada’s most controversial, yet celebrated politician.”
London Free Press

“Arrogant, shy, charming, rude, kind, thoughtless — all the contradictory traits of Canada’s best-known 20th century prime minister, Pierre Trudeau, show up in this collection of anecdotes by friends and colleagues. . . . Love him or hate him, Trudeau was a one-off, and...

William Johnson's Stephen Harper and the Future of Canada sets out to dispel the myths and explain the facts about the leader of the official opposition. By his own admission, Harper is not comfortable with the typical role of political leader as baby-kissing, photo-op-seeking figurehead, and Johnson suggests that the reason for his unflattering portrayals in the media is his reluctance to do what's expected of such a figure. "An unusual trait for a politician," Johnson writes, "is his conviction that correct policies are more important than tactics for winning support and achieving power." If nothing else, Johnson maintains, Harper should be admired for standing by his convictions, unaffected by public opinion polls and influence from his own advisers, even when a degree of compromise might have increased his...
