84 BETCHERMAN, Lita-Rose. LAPOINTE, Ernest Ernest Lapointe : Mackenzie King's Great Quebec Lieutenant. First Edition in dustjacket.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto , 2002, ISBN:0802035752 
BETCHERMAN, Lita-Rose. Ernest Lapointe : Mackenzie King's Great Quebec Lieutenant. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (2002). First Edition. Pp [i]-x,(2),[1]-426,(2),+ 12 pp plates. Index. 8vo, black cloth, red lettering to spine. “In this long-overdue study of one of Canada's most important political relationships, Lita-Rose Betcherman details the close association between Ernest Lapointe and Prime Minister Mackenzie King and its effect on Canadian history. Lapointe was the dominant French Canadian in federal politics from the start of the 1920s to the early years of the Second World War,serving as minister of justice and King's Quebec lieutenant. In return for promoting Liberal policies in Quebec, Lapointe was given an unusual amount of autonomy in his constituency, and, as the Prime Minister's understandin g of both the province's sensibilities and its language were poor, Lapointecame to be relied upon to provide King with the French-Canadian perspectiv e. Lapointe's role in maintaining Liberal party unity, and, by extension, national unity, was crucial. Equally important when it came to foreign affairs, he was known to take the lead over King, and the isolationist stance ofboth politicians served to undermine the League of Nations in its dealings with Italy over the invasion of Ethiopia. Betcherman draws on key primary sources for her material, including the Lapointe Papers, the King Papers, the King Diary, and the media of the times. Ernest Lapointe thus documents Canadian politics and society in a rigorous and accessible manner that will appeal to both a scholarly and general audience." - from the dj.

"Say Goodnight, Dick is the chronicle of an unprecedented era in Canadian politics. Josh Beutel's cartoons represent more than just a caricaturist's history of the turbulenttimes of New Brunswick Premier Richard Hatfield. It portrays, too, the unr estrained spirit of political cartoons. Acerbic, witty, incisive, irreverent, at times outrageous, Say Goodnight, Dick is a rendering in pictures of the thousands of words which have been written of a man who, for better or worse, has left an indelible mark on New Brunswick and Canada. Whether it isHatfield the politician, who reneged on a promise of public kindergartens; or Hatfield the traveller whose luggage once yielded a cache of marijuana, Beutel's pen and brush have captured the mood of the moment. Josh Beutei i s one of those rare people who constantly remind those of us who write for a living that "a picture is worth a thousand words." (Don Hoyt, quoted on the back cover).

Rusty Bittermann (b. 1951)

Winner of the "Democracy 250 Atlantic Book Award for Historical Writing", 2011 Atlantic Book Awards.

Sailor's Hope provides a moving account of a multi-faceted man, tracking his engagement with the extraordinary changes occurring in the Atlantic and Pacific Worlds in the decades after the American and French Revolutions. William Cooper was born in poverty in industrializing Scotland. Without any formal education, he worked his way up through the British merchant marine to the position of captain on voyages linking Britain with Iberia and North America.

When Cooper decided to establish a home for his family, he leased land in Prince Edward Island and named his farm "Sailor's Hope." For most of his adult life, Cooper played multiple roles - Prince Edward Island politician and legislative emissary to the UK, husband, father, farmer, merchant, miller, captain, boat builder, and amateur scientist. When his sons sought to establish themselves in life, the family built a boat and sailed from Prince Edward Island to California. Cooper, like many of his nineteenth-century contemporaries, inhabited a larger world than that encompassed by national boundaries.

Rusty Bittermann's lucid prose, skilful analysis of sometimes fragmentary sources, and well-chosen illustrations bring Cooper's world to life.” - from the back cover. ” - from the back cover.
