?Divided Loyalties does an effective job of putting a quarter-century of Liberal history into a coherent whole, while adding some illuminating detail along the way.? (Lawrence Martin The Globe and Mail January 21, 2011)
‘Jeffrey has written a solid account of the liberal party of Canada. Smoothly narrated, rich with detail, Divided Loyalties is a worthy addition to the shelf of Canadian politics. Present day academics and future historians will be grateful for the wealth of material that Jeffrey has woven together.’ (Ron Graham, Literary Review of Canada, vol19:03: April 2011)
‘Brooke Jeffrey brings a unique perspective to what happened to the liberal government party at the end of twentieth century… Divided Loyalties tells a thoroughly readable story while simultaneously offering a new and thought-provoking analysis.’ (Penny Bryden Canadian Historical Review; vol 93:03:2012)
'Divided Loyalties stands alone in the literature on Canadian political parties and makes an extraordinary contribution to how we understand this country's contemporary politics. Brooke Jeffrey advances crucial arguments on the Liberal Party's rapid decline that all future evaluations will need to take into account. She is uniquely positioned to communicate the complexity of the relationships between leaders, caucus, constituency associations, voters, and election advisers, and her extensive interviews with key Liberal politicians and advisers offer remarkably candid assessments of the party and its policies.' (David E. Smith, Professor Emeritus, University of Saskatchewan, and Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, University of Regina)|'Divided Loyalties brings together for the first time the complete story of the Liberal Party during its most tempestuous years. Brooke Jeffrey's study of Canada's .natural governing party. is balanced, authoritative, and very relevant to current events.' (Hugh Thorburn, Professor Emeritus, Queen's University)|'Extremely well documented and well written, Divided Loyalties is the definitive record of the Liberal Party through the Turner, Chrétien, and Martin years. Brooke Jeffrey's interviews with Members of Parliament, high-ranking public servants, and senior Liberals provide an authentic account of the party's travails and conflicts, making Divided Loyalties a truly valuable contribution to Canada's political history.' (Peter Russell, Professor Emeritus, University of Toronto)See all Product Description
