Red Toryism is a peculiarly Canadian phonomenon: a heritage of radical populism that stands at the very foundation of our national life.
Charles Taylor profiles seven prominent thinkers in the radical tory tradition, among them Donald Creighton, biographer of John A. Macdonald and author of the most influential interpretation of Canadian history in the 20th century; George Grant, philosopher and author of the classic analysis of Canadian nationhood, Lament for a Nation; and Eugene Forsey, one of the founders of the socialist CCF in the 1930s, who identifies himself a Macdonald Conservative.
Radical Tories is an eye-opening journey to the wellsprings of conservative tradition on Canada.

"Mr Taylor's heroes are conservers. They are me who value their roots, who value saving the country's traditions, who value saving the land. They are rich, fascinating people to read about."

- Michael Valpy Globe and Mail

"Writes with wit, grace and charm. He has an eye for telling detail..."

- Canadian Journal of Political Science

"Intriguing ... very enjoyable."

- London Free Press
