Book of the Week – Young Trudeau (Max and Monique Nemni)

Young Trudeau
Son of Quebec, Father of Canada
By Max and Monique Nemni

This groundbreaking biography continues the story begun in Young Trudeau, taking Canada’s legendary Prime Minister from his pro-fascist youth all the way to his entry into federal politics as a crusading Liberal democrat.

When he went to Harvard in 1944, Pierre Trudeau was twenty-five, a recent graduate of the University of Montreal Law School; true to his elite Catholic-French education, he had been till recently pro-fascist, and he disliked democracy. Years of graduate study at Harvard, then the Sorbonne, then the London School of Economics exposed him to new ideas, as did his hitchhiking travels around the world. Returned to Quebec as a new man, he engaged in educating workers and other jobs that made him a famous defender of federal democracy.
