Visionaries, Crusaders, and Firebrands

by Lynn Gidluck

"If NDP organizers want a primer to hand out to all first-time convention delegates about how to make sense of the sometimes unintelligible undercurrents at work in the policy-rich but fractious world of the New Democratic Party of Canada, they could do worse than order up a few boxes of Lynn Gidlucks Visionaries, Crusaders and Firebrands: The Idealistic Canadians Who Built the NDP. Non-NDP readers would learn a lot as well."
