Peter C. Newman's poison pen has lodged itself firmly in the viscera of the Canadian elite. In Mavericks, he has selected his most evocative writing about those Canadians who run against the grain on the grandest scale, including Conrad Black. Some of the other characters who populate this volume include Garth Drabinsky, the Eaton boys, Louis Riel, Robert Campeau and Peter Nygard. In the world of politics, he takes on John Diefenbaker, the subject of his ground-breaking Renegade in Power, as well as Brian Mulroney, Kim Campbell, René Lévesque, Bill Vander Zalm and Lucien Bouchard.
