'Blake's book covers the years 1949 to 1957 and how Newfoundlanders came to be Canadians. It is an impressive, judicious vigorously written work, based on considerable research...it is a fascinating success story.'
'Blake adds significantly to our knowledge of Newfoundland's early years as a province, informs the debate, and moves it forward.'
