Description

How can we remember Pierre Trudeau? Let Zolf count the ways.

First he was the wisest (or the wiliest?) of the Wise Men, the Philosopher King with the potion of "Reason Above Passion." Then he was the star of Trudeaumania, "our permanent Expo": suddenly Canada had a prime minister who could surf, shrug, frug, flip and flirt. In 1970 there was the macho Trudeau of War Measures, daring a nation of pantywaists to "Just Watch Me." More roles followed. With so many masks, the fifteenth prime minister bedazzled the people for sixteen years, when suddenly they awoke to ask, "What did he do to us?"

Written as Trudeau retired from active politics, illustrated with dozens of photographs chronicling his career, Just Watch Me is a fascinating record of the career of one of Canada's most enigmatic leaders.
