MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Teeth of Time serves two parallel purposes, providing personal insights into Pierre Trudeau, while also giving us greater insight into the intellectual and political development of Cook himself, as he developed his understanding of Quebec, the Canadian constitution, and English-French relations. As a contribution to Canadian political and intellectual history, and as a commentary on public engagement by intellectuals, The Teeth of Time is a valuable, and often entertaining, addition to the literature." Left History
"This is a smart book about the way we remember the past, the allure of power and celebrity, the potential depths of intellectual companionship, and ultimately about one man's view of that most enigmatic of Canadian politicians. In breaking the teeth of time, Cook is doing what historians have always done with their subjects but have so rarely attempted with their friends. The results are most worthwhile." P.E. Bryden, University of Toronto Quarterly
