What People are saying about this

J.L. Granatstein
'William Clifford Clark was a creator of modern Canada, but he was remarkably little known—until now. Robert A. Wardhaugh's able biography puts this pre-eminent Ottawa Man into the spotlight at last.'

Matthew Bellamy
'Behind the Scenes reconstructs the public life and ideas of one of Canada's most important civil servants—William Clifford Clark, who exerted a profound influence on the conduct of the whole of the public service. Deserving of a wide readership, this accessible work adds valuable insights and new details to what was a formative chapter in Canadian political and economic history.'
