Until the outbreak of hostilities in 1939, Mackenzie King prided himself on never publicly saying anything derogatory about Hitler or Mussolini, unequivocally supporting the appeasement policies of British prime minister Neville Chamberlain and regarding Hitler as a benign fellow mystic. In Mackenzie King in the Age of the Dictators Roy MacLaren leads readers through the political labyrinth that led to Canada's involvement in the Second World War and its awakening as a forceful nation on the world stage.
Roy MacLaren has been a diplomat, businessman, minister in three federal cabinets, and Canada's high commissioner to the United Kingdom.
The Bill Graham Centre is a joint undertaking of Trinity College and the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, in the University of Toronto.
