"Created in 1961, Canada's New Democratic Pary has outlived both its illusions and its obituaries. In three provinces, it now forms the government. In Ottawa, it has had to deliver on its promise that minority parties can make a difference. NDP : The Dream of Power is an outspoken unvarnished history of what has happened to the NDP from its origins to 1973. In a blunt and forceful analu=ysis, Desond Morton has presented aninsider's view of NDP - trade union relations, the great Waffle fight and the ten-year struggle to build support in Quebec." - from the rear cover.
