Summary
"Often ignored in the study of Canadian history or dismissed as a vestige of colonial status, the governor general's office provides essential historical insight into Canada's constitutional evolution. In the nineteenth century, as today, individual governors general exercised considerable scope in interpreting their approach to the office. The era from 1847 to 1878 witnessed profound changes in Canada's relationship with Britain, and in this new book Barbara J. Messamore explores the nature of these changes through an examination of the role of the governor general."--Jacket
