    One thought on “When the Gods Changed: The Death of Liberal Canada”

    1. Back when a certain NDP candidate named Thomas Mulcair shocked the Ottawa establishment by winning a 2007 by election in the former Liberal stronghold of Outremont, the press went wild They wrote reams about the Liberals poor campaign, droned on and on about how far the party had fallen, and speculated endlessly about what it all meant for the party s future In the process, they all but pronounced the Liberals dead, but they spilled almost no ink about who had beaten them and none at all about h [...]

    2. Very poignant and compelling title, it got me to read this book not a waste of time.Peter C Newman is pessimistic about Canada s once dominant force in politics, believing it came to a vicious end following an unprecedented defeat in the last elections His book its main focus was initially utterly different the making of the next Prime Minister, cosmopolitan intellectual, Harvard professor Michael Ignatieff enumerates and details the factors of the Government Party s demise Professionalism , arr [...]

    3. Its clearly evident this book was written in a rush Newman promises an analysis of the death of the liberal party, however, he doesn t make a case for its actual death Moreover, his promised historical overview rushed, haphazard and non sequential In actuality, Newman offers some historical content interposed with a retelling of the 2011 election and Ignatieff s move to Canada Newman strangely thought Ignatieff would win and revitalize the Liberal Party as did some party insiders However, I neve [...]

    4. I enjoyed this book than I thought I would In addition to analyzing how the Liberals gained and maintained power for the majority of the 20th century, the author also weaves in Michael Ignatieff s story It is an extremely interesting narrative that the author was able to create, guiding the reader through the many signs pointing to Liberal s demise leading up to Ignatieff s failed attempt to become prime minister Newman offers an in depth analysis of the party that he suggests exerted too much [...]

    5. It was Taylor Owen and David Eaves review of this book in the LRC reviewcanada reviews 2012 0 that made me want to read this After having done so, I still liked the review better than the book, but no one in Canadian political writing beats Peter Newman He s seen it all Here s a link to an interesting talk I attended where he talked about this book and reflected on the changes in political journalism over his many decades in the biz www2maracanada blog pos

    6. A page turner, for sure, but not the best on the subject and certainly not Newman s best His writing is grade A but if you expect Orwellian or Hitchenese level prose you will be disappointed That said, a good take on the fall of the Liberals I wish Newman could have given support to his main thesis that the party is gone for good, something I don t agree with, especially with the rise of J Trudeau but again, an overall interesting and gritty book.

    7. Would love to give this one a accurate 3 1 2 stars I could not muster a 4 for it A nice tight little history of the Liberal Party of Canada and how they lost their way, leading to the debacle of the last federal election Completely devoid of any humour, really just a dry political recanting of a party whose best days are seemingly behind them.I wish there were a Canadian version of Hunter Thompson to tell this tale.

    8. The book is fairly interesting, but it feels like they really pushed the book out the door The editing was terrible in places, and the sheer prose was turgid to say the least The book however, had a number of good points, though they are depressing points I don t really want to talk about the politics of it here though.

    9. Fascinating subject and one must applaud attempts to dramatize canadian politics Fizzles a bit at the end, but I guess that is due to the subject matter doing just that.

    10. Excellent book An interesting look at the collapse of the Liberal Party Newman is not optimistic about a comeback.

    11. Another book that I couldn t put down because I couldn t stand the author Very smarmy and egotisical Still, an interesting and enjoyable read.

    12. I m not a fan of politics or the details This book is well written and gives a good idea to the reader of what life was like at this time.

    13. I do not agree with everything he says, but this is a very good book giving context on the Liberal party run from WWII to today.
