He's baaaaack

I have great admiration for Vladimir Bukovsky and am praising him in my current book, a history of Canada, for his criticism of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau’s admiring comments about the Soviet Siberian city of Norilsk, largely constructed by Gulag victims.
[emphasis added]
I have written elsewhere that Conrad Black can be an interesting writer and a formidable historian, and that it is much better to have him writing histories than running businesses or getting involved in public administration.

Well, brace yourselves, Canadianists. Apparently he will follow his recent "strategic history" of the United States with a history of Canada.
