About the book

George Grant (1918–1988), the most influential Tory intellectual of the 20th century, warned in “Lament for a Nation” of the collision course for the two different ‘North Americas’ embodied in the Dominion of the North and the Republic to its South. Is the disappearance of the Tory alternative an inevitable fate to our future as ‘North Americans’? In The North American High Tory Tradition, Ron Dart shines light upon the classical lineage, deep wisdom and enduring nature of the High Tory tradition as it has been planted and grown in the soil of North America, and in doing so reveals how Canada may serve as a north star to lead North Americans to a different destiny than that planned for them by the American revolutionaries of 1776.
