This book offers a lively, on-the-spot report on the successes and failures of the first term of Brian Mulroney's Progressive Conservative government.
Extraordinarily comprehensive in the subjects it covers--free trade, natural resources, the Meech Lake Accord, taxes and social programs, defence, immigration, culture and patronage--Selling Out is a lively and provocative book that captures the atmosphere of Mulroney's Ottawa while dissecting the interest groups that influenced government policy at that time.
Selling Out is a lively contemporary report on one of the most controversial periods in Canada's recent history.
