Society is made for man; if it serves him badly he is entitled to overthrow it -Pierre Elliott Trudeau
No man played a more prominent role in modern Canadian political life than Pierre Elliott Trudeau. He was loved, he was hated, but most of all, he mattered.
Trudeau burst like a comet onto the federal political scene, becoming Canada's fifteenth prime minister in 1968. But as this collection of essays from the 1950s clearly shows, Trudeau had thought long and hard about the fundamental principles of government and politics before gaining the national spotlight. Approaches to Politics
is an essential introduction both to the political philosophy of Pierre Trudeau and to the eternal principles underlying democracy-a book as relevant and readable today as when it was first published four decades ago.
This edition includes a new foreword by noted historian Ramsay Cook, as well as Cook's original introductory essay and a prefatory note by Jacques Hebert.
