Adapted from articles originally published in the legendary Last Post magazine, Let Us Prey offers penetrating analyses of Canadian business in the early 1970s.

Subjects include Bell Canada, with its complicated corporate manoeuvrings to create profitable subsidiaries beyond the reach of federal government regulation; Bata Shoes, a Canadian-based multinational whose Czech owner had close connections to the Nazis in the 1930s; Brascan, with its investments in Brazil and its long string of corporate executives turned Liberal cabinet ministers.

Let Us Prey directs a critical eye at the affairs of some of the largest corporations operating in Canada in the 1970s.
