Macdonald-Laurier Institute research advisory board member and author Janet Ajzenstat has written a new book, titled Discovering Confederation: A Canadian’s Story.

The book tells the story of Ajzenstat’s academic career and the viewpoints she’s formed along the way.

Ajzenstat takes the reader through her life as a student and her time learning from prominent thinkers Allan Bloom and George Grant to her current teaching career.

Throughout, Discovering Confederation shows why individual rights are protected under parliamentary democracy.
