This magnificent second volume, written with exclusive access to
Trudeau's private papers and letters, completes what the "Globe and
Mail" called "the most illuminating Trudeau portrait yet written"
-- sweeping us from sixties' Trudeaumania to his final days when he
debated his faith.
His life is one of Canada's most engrossing stories. John English
reveals how for Trudeau style was as important as substance, and
how the controversial public figure intertwined with the
charismatic private man and committed father. He traces Trudeau's
deep friendships (with women especially, many of them talented
artists, like Barbra Streisand) and bitter enmities; his marriage
and family tragedy. He illuminates his strengths and weaknesses --
from Trudeaumania to political disenchantment, from his
electrifying response to the kidnappings during the October Crisis,
to his all-important patriation of the Canadian Constitution, and
his evolution to influential elder statesman.
