Details: Canadians want to know: Who is our greatest prime minister? Who is the worst? Who is considered the best strategist? The most charming? The most hated? The most accomplished? So many Canadians want to know, in fact, that the day PRIME MINISTERS: RANKING CANADA'S LEADERS was published, the book made the front page of THE GLOBE AND MAIL and catapulted onto the bestseller lists. That's due in no small part to the lively and provocative insights of the authors, who have drawn 20 succinct and sometimes controversial portraits of our prime ministers, accompanied by cartoons, photos and a useful index of political issues. From Mackenzie King (ranked no. 1), who was a brilliant strategist and a stubborn supporter of Canadian autonomy, to Kim Campbell (ranked no. 20), who proved that a woman could be prime minister, and that a woman, too, could be incompetent, PRIME MINISTERS explores the qualities of leadership and character than enable some people to succeed at our highest office, and the weaknesses that cause others to fail miserably. A book that can be read as an engrossing short history of Canada, as a spirited survey of the major political issues that have shaped our country, or as a series of mini-biographical portraits of our leaders, PRIME MINISTERS in this new trade paperback edition will attract an even larger audience of students, history buffs and all those who want a fresh and knowledgeable perspective on the nature of Canadian politics and leadership.
