It was not the author's intention but his description of Canada and the evolution of professional hockey in the early 1900's documents just how far removed this country was from being an independent state. We were still primarily a British Colony. The founders of The Ontario Hockey Association saw themselves as British first then Canadian. It is within this imperial context that the author traces the evolution of hockey in Canada. No wonder Mr. Larry Kwong was not allowed to play in the NHL as recent as the late 1940's. The book does include some marvellous photos, an excellent annotated bibliography some informative statistics.

Better then I expected. Stirs up a little pride for the national game. Great for hockey fans.
