Book Description

Oct. 1 2005

Any look at Stephen Harper and the new Conservative party requires an examination of the evangelical Christian legacy coming out of both the Canadian Alliance and Progressive Conservative parties. In Stephen Harper: The Case for Collaborative Governance, award-winning journalist Lloyd Mackey discovers how Harper handles this legacy carefully, tracing the influence of the writings of such religious icons as C.S. Lewis and Malcolm Muggeridge on Harper’s world view.

In this critically acclaimed biography, Mackey examines the interface between faith and politics in Harper’s life, the importance of his background as an economist in informing his policies, and the influence of his wife and children in shaping the leader of the Conservative party.

Drawing from the various facets of Harper’s life, Mackey offers indicators on what to expect from Harper’s prime ministership, and the kinds of strategies he will be required to adopt to win the next election. Now, with a new final chapter in the revised paperback edition, Mackey analyses the current political climate and identifies the challenges facing Harper in his role as Canada’s new prime minister.

First Sentence
While Stephen Joseph Harper himself has never exhibited particularly strong prime ministerial ambitions, a substantial number of conservative thinkers and operatives, mostly from western Canada, have been gently nudging him forward from the time he was in his mid-twenties. Read the first page

3.0 out of 5 stars A look into the creepy religion of Stephen Harper Nov. 29 2009
Format:Hardcover
Reading this makes you want to wash your hands. Stephen Harper's scary fanaticism or his evangelical beliefs is truly creepy. More American than Canadian is much of his beliefs, Harper comes across as George Bush's equally evil twin. It's truly staggering to think what disasters Harper would subject Canada to if he ever gets a majority. Can you imagine a religion that equates money and power with closeness to god?
