Part memoir, part history, The Worst and best of the
Premiers and Some we Never had is Bill Rowe’s most ambitious work of
non-fiction to date. The book observes with a critical and humorous eye the
landscape of Newfoundland and Labrador politics since Confederation in 1949.
Forty-two leaders are presented here, of all political
stripes, Bill Rowe, with his inimitable style, examines the professional lives
of each leader- from Chesley A. Crosbie in the 1940s to Dwight Ball,
present-day premier of the province- and grades them based on accomplishment
during their time in public life.
Bill Rowe is a national bestselling author and former MHA
and minister in the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.
