Diefenbaker: Leadership Gained, 1956-62
By Peter Stursberg
University of Toronto Press, 1975, 278 pp

This is a good book for two reasons: first, it is a fascinating contribution to recent Canadian political history; second, it is a model for the presentation of oral history. Most of the text consists of the tape-recorded comments of Canadian politicians of the John Diefenbaker era.
