Time and Chance The Political Memoirs of Canada's First Woman Prime Minister 3rd Edition

by Kim Campbell - May, 2008

OUT OF PRINT

Kim Campbell forged her own way in the rough-and-tumble world of Canadian politics, from her first election—to the Vancouver School Board—to her historic rise to Prime Minister of Canada. How did this hardworking, intensely shy woman become a political phenomenon who broke ground for a generation of women? In this candid, revealing memoir, Kim Campbell looks back on an exciting and often improbable career, at the challenges she met, the issues she tackled—from the David Milgaard case, to the controversy over sexual orientation in the military, to Canada’s role in the Gulf War—and the politicians who were her friends, her enemies, and sometimes both. 

A remarkable portrait of contemporary Canadian politics the way it really is, Time and Chance also provides an important look at the unique experience of one woman in the political arena, the price Kim Campbell paid, and the rewards she reaped for her principles, her determination, and her achievements.
