What People are Saying About This

Thomas P. Socknat

[E]ssential reading for anyone who wants a greater understanding of not only conscientious objection but of the entire Canadian experience during the First World War. It is an original and balanced examination of a contentious issue and an important contribution to an often neglected area of scholarship.

"[E]ssential reading for anyone who wants a greater understanding of not only conscientious objection but of the entire Canadian experience during the First World War. It is an original and balanced examination of a contentious issue and an important contribution to an often neglected area of scholarship."—Thomas P. Socknat, co—editor of Challenge to Mars: Essays on Pacifism from 1918 to 1945

"An original and fascinating study of minority religious rights in Canadian society during wartime. Crisis of Conscience will be an important source for readers interested in pacifism, anti—war sentiment, and peace movements, not just in Canada but in the wider western world."—David Marshall, author of Secularizing the Faith: Canadian Protestant Clergy and the Crisis of Belief, 1850—1940
