MARTIN, Ged. Faction and Fiction in Canada's Great Coalition of 1864. Sackville, N.B.: Centre for Canadian Studies, Mount Allison University, (1993). Pp (6),-40. 8vo, tan stapled card covers, lettered in black.
"This lecture was delivered on October 29, 1991 in the Crabtree Auditorium at Mount Allison University, as one of three 1991-92 Winthron Pickard Bell Lectures."
"Unlike most of my predecessors, I propose to discuss a theme which does not immediately appear to relate to the Maritimes, by offering a revision of our understanding of the politics and policies of the Great Coalition which launched Confederation in the province of Canada in 1864. In fact, this re presents part of a wider study which seeks to re-examine and indeed to challenge generally accepted ideas about the reasons why Confederation came about. I therefore begin with a brief survey of what I term the "textbook interpretation" of the causes of Confederation, with some indications of why I believe it to be largely inaccurate." (p. 2).
