Product Description

Review

"...a very thorough, authoritative biography with a title that not only projects a strong, powerful image, but conveys the author's willingness to call a spade a spade. As a former academic historian, Nadeau brings an impressive array of insight and talent to the task of unravelling the life of Canada's best know fascist leader...It will quickly be recognized as the standard work on a sordid aspect of Quebec's 20th-century history." (Paul W. Bennett Chronicle Herald 2102-01-29)

"His book is both more and sometimes less than a biography: Arcand is the focus, but numerous other actors appear and additional nationalist groups are analyzed... It is not that Nadeau lacks a point of view: his dislike of the leading and supporting actors in his fascinating story is pronounced. But he is cool and detached and his research is thorough and critical. The translation is smooth and readable... Jean-François Nadeau's study of Adrien Arcand and his times is an engrossing read. A talented historian, Nadeau has put this despicable figure into a rich context of many marginal movements..." (Ramsay Cook Literary Review of Canada 2011-12-01)

"Nadeau has penetrated into dark recesses of Quebec history, areas, which as he notes, have been largely ignored." (Bryan Demchinsky roverarts.com/2011/11/achtung-baby 2011-11-13)

"Jean-François Nadeau gives a highly readable portrait of a malevolent and shadowy figure, while also providing a well-informed outline of the right-wing Catholic movements that once flourished in Quebec...The breadth of Nadeau's research is impressive...This book is of great worth to professional historians, but it will also appeal to a broad readership." (Jean Coleno Montreal Review of Books 2012-04-01)

"Nadeau’s writing is thorough, and the story he tells is chilling... one is reminded of the fragility of our multicultural society" (Mark Reid Canada's History 2012-09-01)
