Clean, tight, unmarked; a couple of light creases to back cover; otherwise appears unread; In this biography of British Columbia's second premier, Hawkins delves into the mysteries surrounding the life of Amor De Cosmos, who exerted enormous influence on Canadian history but who is today hardly remembered. As founder of the colony's most widely read newspaper, he attacked the "family-company-compact", becoming the principal voice demanding responsible government. As a politician, he became the prime mover to bring BC into Confederation. So how is it that De Cosmos is not remembered as a fighter for responsible government and social justice?
