New Titles (New Guru)

I noted recently the CHA's Macdonald Prize for Ian McKay's new history of the left in Canada.

That's not the only recent tribute to McKay. University of Toronto Press has out a new volume Liberalism and Hegemony: Debating the Canadian Liberal Revolution. The collection of papers edited by Jean-Francois Constant and Michel Ducharme is a set of responses to McKay's 2000 "The Liberal Order Framework." And that was just an essay in the Canadian Historical Review!

Janet Ajzenstat notes the successful seminar on McKay at the CHA sessions and offers some polite but deeply sceptical notes on his ideas.
