Drapeau

By: McKenna, Brian/ Purcell, Susan

Price: $15.00 USD

Publisher: Toronto, Clarke Irwin & Company, Ltd.: 1980

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 012750

ISBN: 0-7720-1298-9

Condition: Good Plus


Begins with detailed early life. Touches on antisemitism and anti-conscription of the 40's. Membership in the La Patente was a surprise to me, especially that this organization apparently took credit for many of Drapeau's successes. Rioting at McGill University, the policemen's strike, kidnaping of Cross and Laporte, the murder of Laporte, and the War Measures Act kept Montreal in the headlines through the late 60's and most of the 70's. 375 pp. View more info
