"Clear, concise, and colourful." --Times Colonist (Victoria) "Lively, compact, and opinionated. . . . If you no longer can recall what is significant about the British North America Act, the Family Compact, the Charlottetown and Meech Lake Accords, the rebellions of Louis Riel, William Lyon Mackenzie and Louis-Joseph Papineau, and the War Measures Act, then this informative volume, a marvel of compression, is for you." --Hamilton Spectator "Many are called to write gem-like distillations like this one, but few can pull it off with Nelles's elegance, intelligence, and clarity." --Canadian Historical Review
