Description

A modern look at a classic leader.
Macdonald at 200 presents fifteen fresh interpretations of Canada’s founding Prime Minister, published for the occasion of the bicentennial of his birth in 1815. Well researched and crisply written by recognized scholars and specialists, the collection throws new light on Macdonald’s formative role in shaping government, promoting women’s rights, managing the nascent economy, supervising westward expansion, overseeing relations with Native peoples, and dealing with Fenian terrorism. A special section deals with how Macdonald has (or has not) been remembered by historians as well as the general public. The book concludes with an afterword by prominent Macdonald biographer Richard Gwyn. Macdonald emerges as a man of full dimensions — an historical figure that is surprisingly relevant to our own times.

Editorial Review

Macdonald at 200 is a must-read for anyone in Kingston and beyond who wants to learn more about Canada and the role a Kingston lawyer -- a man who arrived on our shores as an immigrant from a far-off land just as millions do today -- played in our earliest years as a nation.
