Peter C. Newman is the author whose pioneering studies of power – how it is used and abused within Canadian society – made the Canadian Establishment a household phrase. Now, he tackles the oldest and most fascinating institution of them all : the Governor and Company of Adventurers of England trading into Hudson’s Bay.
Recipient of a dozen of the most coveted awards in North American journalism, Newman has been editor-in-chief of the country’s largest newspaper, “The Toronto Star”, and most influential magazine, “Maclean’s”.
They were Caesars of the wilderness... Newman brillantly chronicles the epic adventures of eccentric knights, unscrupulous financiers and shrewd Scottish traders – all in the service of the world’s mightiest commercial empire.
