Holding the Bully's Coat
By Linda McQuaig
Doubleday Canada
296pp. $34.95

Canadians of all political stripes are angry with their lot in life lately, and they want to do something about it. From Andrea Mandel-Campbell's recently published lament for Canadian competitiveness–a more right-wing take on what's wrong with Canada today–to Linda McQuaig's latest book Holding the Bully's Coat–a left-leaning look at all the "bad" things we're doing (and not doing) on the international stage– Canadian journalists seem intent on diagnosing what ails us and doing something about it.
