    This book did not really need to exist. I mistakenly picked this book up thinking it would be about Canada. It ends up being about Canada about half the time. The other half is about the Soviet Union, the Weimar Republic, the United States, any country but Canada. I understand that some context is required at times, but the author focused for far too long on non-Canadian history. Daniel Francis also focuses for far too long on the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919, which should have been its own b [...]

    This book does a good job of summarizing the 1918-1919 "red scare" in Canada, with a lot of time spend discussing the Winnipeg General Strike. Too little of my personal reading is spend on Canadian history, and I found this to be refreshing change from my usual world history books.

    Mostly about the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919, with some interesting analysis of the view on "bolshevikis" from early 20th Century Canadian politicians and press. This is the longest short book I have read in a while. The title oversells it quite a bit. Just read the article, you'll not get much more from this book unless you are prepared to read a master's thesis that has been padded out to book length.

    There wasn't a whole lot of new material if you, like myself, have already looked at this topic before. The most interesting section was definitely the final chapter where the author compares the 1918-19 Red Scare and the current "War on Terror" since September 11th. An interesting telling of the history.

    A likely little known piece of Canadian history and heritagee dictatorial rule of the Prime Minister Borden's government is a chilling reminder what can happen when democracy is subverted by power grabbers. Every Canadian should red this. Wonderfully researched by Daniel Francis.

    A fantastic look at Canada’s version of the “red scare” with a brief, insightful comparison to the current situation with the war on terror.
