"Right from the start, BrianMulroney has always been ambitious. Now he has spent years deliberately ai ming to produce Canada's most remarkable prime ministerial memoirs in living memory. [...] But politics was always Brian Mulroney’s real love. As an undergraduate in Nova Scotia he amazed his friends by getting Prime MinisterDiefenbaker on the phone, and he rose fast in the Tory ranks in Quebec. He tried for the leadership of the party in 1976, losing to Joe Clark, then r eturned to win a rematch in 1983. The next year, he ran the most successfulelection campaign in Canadian history, winning 211 seats, taking office in September 1984. His first term in office was a stormy one, marked by the l aunch of the Meech Lake Accord and the Free Trade Agreement with the UnitedStates. In 1988, however, he was re-elected after a rollercoaster campaign , and his second term in office was just as controversial, featuring the GST, and the Meech Lake and Charlottetown Accords — still a source of deep regret for him, as opportunities missed." - from the dj.

4 BERCUSON, David GRANATSTEIN, J. L. YOUNG, W. R. MULRONEY, Brian) Sacred Trust? : Brian Mulroney and the Conservative Party in Power. First Edition in dustjacket
Doubleday Canada Limited / Doubleday & Company, Inc., Toronto, Ontario / Garden City, New York, 1986, ISBN:0385250606 
BERCUSON, David, J. L. GRANATSTEIN, and W. R. YOUNG. Sacred Trust? : Brian Mulroney and the Conservative Party in Power. Toronto, Ontario : Doubleday Canada Limited / Garden City, New York : Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1986. First Edition. Pp (6),vii-viii,(2),1-304,(6). 8vo [145 x 225 mm], blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. David Jay Bercuson, OC, FRSC (b August 31, 1945, Montreal) is a Canadian labour, military and political historian, Jack Lawrence Granatstein, OC FRSC (b. May 21, 1939) is a Canadian historian who specializes in political and military history. W.R. Young taught history atMcGill University. "Elected in September 1984 with the largest parliamenta ry majority in Canadian history, the Conservatives swept into power on a wave of promises and plans. After a mere eighteen months, with their popularity declining in the polls and a string of scandals to their discredit, the Conservatives seem likely to go down in history as another short interruption in a Liberal century. Historians David Bercuson, J.L. Granatstein, and W.R. Young dissect the Tory record from September 1984 to April 1986. Using inside documents and interviews with politicians, bureaucrats, and party workers, they describe how the Tories tried to change the way government operates and detail the few successes and many failures of Conservative politics: the collapse of the two Western banks, Tunagate, the Polar Sea icncident, the free trade negotiations, the furor over the de-indexation of old age pensions, and relations with Quebec. ` As the authors conc/ude: "Each government stumble shows that the Conservatives are not doing the most importantthing they sought to do - make government work better than it has in the r ecent past... If this government does not soon begin to project an image ofself-confidence and direction, an image based on competence and good manag ement, the electorate will surely snatch Mulroney's 'sacred trust' away."
