"This book has its origin in the great interest which the author de veloped in the political life of the province of New Brunswick when he heldan academic post in that province. People spoke willingly and enthusiatica lly about politics because they felt a personal concern in them, and Professor Thorburn was able to record much information at first hand about the details of highly individualistic local political organizations. This valuable research was carried on in the mid-1950's. Beyond this, he points out howsome of the problems of the province are important also in Canada as a who le: a mixture of French- and English- speaking people in roughly the national proportion: the influence of tradition, here seen in the relations of Loyalist and Acadian; and absentee ownership of major economic assets. His study is thus of value to students of provincial and of national politics andaffairs, and will interest both for its detail on the local scene and for its general analysis." from the dj.
