Still the only history of conscription in Canada, this is a reissue of the 1977 classic by one of Canada’s foremost historians, Jack Granatstein. Conscription has always been controversial in Canada. According to Granatstein, no single issue has done more to muddy the political waters or to destroy the unity of the nation. Includes a new Introduction in which the former professor of History at York University reflects about why he has changed his mind since first writing the book over thirty years ago.
