    During the First World War, Henri Bourassa - fierce Canadian nationalist, politician, and journalist from Quebec - took centre stage in the national debates on Canada's participation in the war, its imperial ties to Britain, and Canada's place in the world. In Duty to Dissent, Geoff Keelan draws upon Bourassa's voluminous editorials in Le Devoir, the newspaper he founded in 1910, to trace Bourassa's evolving perspective on the war's meaning and consequences. What emerges is not a simplistic sketch of a local journalist engaged in national debates, as most English Canadians know him, but a fully rendered portrait of a Canadian looking out at the world.
