This book offers a fascinating window onto a broader legal and political culture in the process of being forged in the decades before and after Confederation. (Robert Diab, Canadian Journal of Law & Society, vol 25:02:10)
?Binnie & Wright have produced a book that provides much needed background to the current situation in Canada, and one that will prove to be an excellent resource for scholars of modern legal responses to security threats? This volume highlights the importance of this series to our understanding of both Canadian legal history and the development of the Canadian state.? (Sarah E. Hamil Labour/Le Travail vol 66: Fall 2010)
