The result is something to cherish: a poetryone can explore, savour, and be nourished by." - from the rear cover.

McKenna is not the man to let himself be just pushed aside. He fights his battles with whatever weapons come to hand, but the odds are against him and in favour of Roy Wragge, a much younger man whofor some time has been confidently breathing down his neck. Besides, an ab le young minister, out to make his reputaion, has just taken over the department and is making a clean sweep with the past. The Minister runs into trouble in Parliament over a fake rumour of trouble in a remote Arctic village, and one way or another this also puts McKenna on the spot. The story moves to the far north where the smouldering conflict betwen McKenna and Wraggereaches crisis point. Only his young wife, with whom McKenna is very much in love but who makes no secret of her infidelity, guesses what happened upthere.... The Climate of Power is an exciting story that moves between the tensions of power in Ottawa and that mysterious one-third of Canada within the Arctic Circle that only a fraction of the world has ever seen." - from the dj.
