William Lyon Mackenzie King. Vol. III, 1932-1939: The Prism of Unity
By H. Blair Neatby
University of Toronto Press, 1976, 366 pp.
This installment of an excellent biography depicts King's method as Prime Minister to be that of compromise and procrastination, in an endless effort to sustain Canadian unity. That goal explains both his response to the Depression at home and his quasi-isolationist stance in the face of impending war in Europe.
