Product Description

Review

"This is easily the most comprehensive work that has been done on the Order, describing it as it does, in careful detail, both the institution itself, its significance, and the history of its conception and evolution. Christopher McCreery casts lights on the values embodied in Canada's national persona, and how they have come to be expressed in its honours system."

Review

?This is easily the most comprehensive work that has been done on the Order, describing it as it does, in careful detail, both the institution itself, its significance, and the history of its conception and evolution. Christopher McCreery casts light on the values embodied in Canada?s national persona, and how they have come to be expressed in its honours system.?

(Olive Dickason, C.M., Department of History, University of Ottawa, and School of Native Studies, University of Alberta)

?Christopher McCreery?s study of the Order of Canada ? the first of its kind ? is a delightful surprise: solidly researched, it is a charming and passionate defence of the honours system as it has evolved in Canada, and has the added pleasure of being written in an unpretentious, convincing voice.?

(John A. Fraser, C.M., Master of Massey College, University of Toronto, and columnist for the Globe and Mail)
