    schema:reviewBody ""With its detailed accounts of early life at Princeton, royal commissions, government task forces, and private sector assignments, this book will be a compelling read for anyone interested in policy, organizational change, equality issues, and the recent history of Canada's sometimes fragile confederation." "Although biographical, this book is, in large part, a history of Canada too. The author has woven his life together with Canada's recent past, leading us through the strong post-war economic growth and the demographic explosion that came to be known as the baby boom, and on to the resulting dramatic social policy developments. Details of behind-the-scenes events and conversations add humour and realism to the "characters" in his account." "The author captures the era remarkably well. He intertwines personal interests in jazz, chess, and abstract art with the pursuit of university education and developing an understanding of political and social issues. He clearly describes the optimism of the 1950s and early 1960s, the tremendous social revolution of the 1960s, the JFK assassination, and the Marxist 1970s."--Jacket." ;
