book cover - the teeth of time by ramsey cook

Ramsay Cook is considered one of Canada’s first public intellectuals. He’s been the recipient of the Governor General’s Literary Award for non-fiction (1985) and was awarded the Canada Council Molson Prize in the Humanities and Social Sciences in 2005.

     Some of his numerous books include: Canada and the French-Canadian Question, The Maple Leaf Forever, and Canada, Quebec, and the Uses of Nationalism.

     Currently Cook is adjunct professor of history at the University of Toronto and professor emeritus at York University (where he taught for 25 years). His book The Teeth of Time: Remembering Pierre Elliot Trudeau was recently published by McGill-Queen’s University Press. I reached him in Toronto to speak about the book.
