Men such as O.

D. Skelton, Clifford Clark, and Graham Towers dominated the era, with power bases in External Affairs, Finance, and the Bank of Canada. They recruited junior men such as Lester Pearson, Jack Pickersgill, Robert Bryce, Louis Rasminsky, and others, who in turn rose to hold positions of power. Granatstein argues that they created a modern governmental apparatus which could respond effectively to the most sophisticated economic and political initiatives.

The Ottawa Men explores the political, social, and family links that bound together this influential group of men. Based on extensive research in government and private archives and on interviews with the mandarins themselves, their families and friends, and the politicians they served, this first-rate history is once again available to the public.
