George Grant: Redefining Canada



George Grant was one of Canada's most original political and religious thinkers. His book, Lament for a Nation, led some to call him a Red Tory and the dominant force behind the Canadian nationalist movement of the 1970s. At the dawn of the twenty-first century, George Grant's Technology and Empire is praised for its prescience in understanding the full implications of American-led technology-driven globalisation in everyday life. A social conservative, committed Christian, family man, and brilliant teacher who attracted students quite unlike himself, George Grant has been described as "the most formidable combination of personality and intellect Canada has produced."
