Unrevised and Unrepented II includes additional speeches by Meighen as well as articles on and tributes to him. Using the family's private files, Arthur Milnes offers a more complete and fascinating tour through twentieth-century Canadian and world political affairs. In the foreword, Prime Minister Harper places the Meighen legacy in context for today's generation: "Though Arthur Meighen's time as prime minister was relatively brief, his legacy, as this volume attests, lives on. Regardless of party, observers then and now still rank him as perhaps the greatest debater and orator in Canadian political history. His addresses are both legion and legendary."
