Two Prime Ministers

The admirable Extraordinary Canadians series of books published by Penguin Canada under the overall editorship of John Ralston Saul includes former prime ministers Pierre Elliott Trudeau and Lester Bowles Pearson

On the surface, neither of the two could be farther apart in personality and style. Yet each in his own way did more to persuade us to be proud of our Canadian nationality rather than of our colonial heritage.

Lester B. Pearson is written by political author and columnist Andrew Cohen while novelist Nino Ricci was chosen to pen the story of Trudeau. Each volume sells for $26.00.
