A book worthy of joining some of the greatest examinations of human behaviour. Alex Davis, espritdecorps.ca (20120424)
Definitely a book that will get people talking and turn a few heads, I couldn't recommend it more. Alex Davis, espritdecorps.ca (20120424)
The book offers considerable meat to chew. . . . I cant agree with all of Richlers analysis, but I am grateful he has raised some important issues that have not been, but should have been, fully debated in Parliament and in the rest of the country this past decade. Paul Gessell, The Ottawa Citizen (20120509)
"This is a book of enormous erudition. I am stunned by Richler's courage and insight. He dares to take on the pathology orchestrated by the military apologists in our political, academic and media establishment; debunking it, dismembering it, eviscerating it. Rarely does someone of letters take on such a subject and convey the argument with such force and clarity. There's no question that the apologists will have exquisite apoplexy, but surely that's the ultimate tribute. The rest of us will exult in his embrace of the values of peace and decency, in a Canada that once was and might yet be again." — Stephen Lewis, former Canadian Ambassador to the U.N.
