1 - 2 weeks availability


Derided as a buffoon and an ignorant civilian by military critics, Borden became the public's lightning rod and Prime Minster Wilfrid Laurier's point man for negotiating Canada's sensitive military agenda during an era of high imperialism. Carman Miller presents a balanced assessment that seamlessly blends history and social and cultural analysis to highlight Borden's relationships within the contemporary web of nepotism, patronage, business, and family. A detailed account of the leading role Borden played in the development of modern Canada, A Knight in Politics showcases the transition to corporate capitalism and changes in public morality and social and political relationships during the "Age of Camelot."
