"Farewell The Peaceful Kingdom is anirreverent, incisive account of how Canada, from 1963 to the present, transformed itself from a strong federation into a society bent on self-destruction. Joe Armstrong documents the Pearson-Trudeau-Mulroney revolution, peeling away the layers of deception that have characterized Canada's fatal attraction to big government. [...] With deadly insight Armstrong tracks the seminal events and ideas that have debased anation. His conclusion: 'Canada does not suffer from a leadership crisis, but a crisis of citizenship.'
