Politics of Survival: The Conservative Part of Canada, 1939-1945

By J.L. Granatstein

© 1967

Professor Granatstrin's book is a fascinating account of the Conservative party's struggle for survival during the Second World War. In some respects a new departure in Canadian history and with some startling parallels to present-day events and personalities in Canadian politics, it is the first full-length look at a major party during a critical period of our history. Lively writing and a wealth of documentation that has only recently become available help to make it one of the most interesting studies to be published in this field.

    Certain to become an indispensable source for Canadian historians and students of political affairs.


    Dalhousie Review

    "This book will fascinate anyone with a bent for recent Canadian political history. Its author deserves praise both for the remarkable resourcefulness he has shown in getting his hands on hitherto untapped soruces and for the skill with which he has organized and presented his account. ... he has produced an excellent specimen of the kind of monograph on a well-defined subject which makes a genuine contribution to Canadian political studies."


    International Journal

    A most welcome book for both political and historical analysts of Canadian politics.


    Canadian Journal of Political Science

    "Of enduring value to any student of modern Canadian politics."
