What People are Saying About This

David J. Bercuson

‘Robert Craig Brown honoured Canada as his adopted home. By his work on the National Policy, Robert Borden, and other pivotal people and events, he added new dimensions to our understanding of the Canadian enterprise. At the same time he set the highest standards for Canadian historical scholarship. This book is a most fitting tribute to Brown, truly a historian’s historian.’
