Summary
"In her controversial new book, Elaine Dewar, named among 'Canada's best muckrakers,' reveals how our premiere national publisher, McClelland and Stewart, was eventually sold to Random House, a division of German media giant Bertelsmann, for a dollar. Drawing on interviews done with those who engineered the deal, and on documents never before revealed, Dewar tells the story of how a savvy businessman, an accountant, a University President, and three major law firms 'danced through the raindrops' to evade a thirty-year-old public policy created to defend Canadian national sovereignty. Part investigation, part memoir by a journalist whose career was shaped by the Investment Canada Act-the federal rules that protect Canada's $40 billion cultural industry-Dewar explores both how the Act was enacted and how it was taken down, piece by piece, deal by deal."--
