Book cover
By: (1878-1941)

In conformity with its title, this volume, save for the earlier chapters, is history rather than biography, is of the day, more than of the man. The aim has been to review the more significant events and tendencies in the recent political life of Canada. (from the Preface)

PREFATORY NOTE

In conformity with its title, this volume, save for the earlier chapters, is history rather than biography, is of the day , more than of the man. The aim has been to review the more significant events and tendencies in the recent political life of Canada. In a later and larger work it is hoped to present a more personal and intimate biography of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
