"Right from the start, Brian Mulroney has always been ambitious. Now he has spent years deliberately aiming 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 Minister Diefenbaker 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 returned to win a rematch in 1983. The next year, he ran the most successful election campaign in Canadian history, winning 211 seats, taking office in September 1984. His first term in office was a stormy one, marked by the launch of the Meech Lake Accord and the Free Trade Agreement with the United States. 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. Very good in very good unclipped dustjacket. Signed, without inscription, by Mr Mulroney. 40.00
