Book Description

July 26 2006

In 1978, spurred on by his own curiosity and personal frustrations with the state of Canadian politics, journalist Charles Taylor began to trace the history and development of the Conservative Party in Canada. Taylor turned to philosophers, writers, politicians, and thinkers such as George Grant, Donald Creighton, Robert Stanfield, and Al Purdy to chart the course of the party from its early nationalist "Red Tory" roots to the more conservative, corporatist "Blue Tory" tradition that Taylor witnessed with Joe Clark, and has continued with Brian Mulroney and now, Stephen Harper.

Infused with wry humour and a literary tone that eschews academic dryness, Charles Taylor’s Radical Tories has rightly stood the test of time: the Literary Review of Canada recently included it in a list of the 100 most important Canadian books of all time. This edition includes a new afterword by Rudyard Griffiths.
