What People are Saying About This

Marcel Martel

"Lively, engaging, and accessible, Power, Politics, and Principles centres on King and the pivotal role played by his cabinet, particularly in the development of labour policies during the Second World War and the implementation of PC 1003."

Paul Craven

"The real strength of Power, Politics, and Principles is in its account of wartime and immediate postwar Dominion labour policy, especially in the context of contestation within the labour movement. While various aspects of this are covered in other works with different foci, Taylor Hollander provides an excellent summation with instructive detail."

Peter McInnis

"Power, Politics, and Principles is carefully researched and written in lively prose. It covers a period in the history of Canadian industrial relations and labour history that remains essential for scholars to appreciate."
