Praise

“No single book had the psychological impact of Max and Monique Nemni’s Young Trudeau. It changed the perceptions and challenged the political reflexes of Canadians. Conceived as an act of homage, it turned into a journey of shocking discovery. As the Nemnis examined Pierre Trudeau’s private papers, they found a very different young man than they had expected or previous accounts had revealed. The unshakeable federalist who became Canada’s 15th Prime Minister had once plotted to take Quebec out of Canada. The eloquent democrat who penned Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms had once shrugged off Nazi atrocities and admired fascism. It is a tribute to the Nemnis’ skill and scholarship that Mr. Trudeau emerges undiminished from their portrait. They show how he was shaped by pre-war Quebec with its all-powerful church, its authoritarianism, and its separatist yearnings and how he eventually broke free.” —Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing jury citation

“One of the truly great contributions to Canadian political history.” —National Post
