abstract
This edition of Professor New's distinguished biography of Lord Durham, reproduces that portion (approximately one half) which deals with Durham's mission to Canada and the production of his famous Report. With its intimate picture of the political administration of the Canadas immediately after the 1837 rebellion, this has long been required reading for every student of Canadian history and politics.
