Description

First published in 1971 and reissued in 1979, Rumours of War is both a definitive analysis of the October Crisis and a profound reflection of the value of individual civil liberties.

The kidnapping of James Cross, the murder of Pierre Laporte, the proclamation of the War Measures Act under which hundreds of innocent citizens were arrested and held without trial--all these events have become part of our national consciousness. The authors of this volume maintain that the government of the time overreacted to a marginal threat, making a mockery of our system of civil liberties in the process.

Rumours of War is a comprehensive analysis of this crucial period in our history.
