by Michael Harris, Viking, 2014, 576 pages.
This is a thorough, muckraking exposition of the operations of the partisan, reactionary Harper government and its attempts to remake Canada through every manipulative tool possible during its mandate.
They have carried out many egregious actions which essentially subvert parliamentary democracy, override safeguards, attack not just opponents, but anyone who does not support exactly what Harper wants to hear. You can read about them here.
