An instant national bestseller upon publication, True Patriot Love is a passionate and insightful look at what it means to be Canadian, by the man who leads the Liberal Party of Canada, as well as an intimate exploration of Ignatieff's father's family roots.

In 1872, Ignatieff's great grandfather, George Munro Grant, set out with Sandford Fleming to map the railway line that would link Canada from coast to coast. Ignatieff's grandfather, William Lawson Grant, came home from the First World War believing that Canada had earned the right to call itself an independent nation. But Ignatieff's uncle, George Grant, author of the classic Lament for a Nation, believed that Canada had gone from colony to nation and back to colony—of the United States.

With the same novelistic flair evident in The Russian Album, Michael Ignatieff blends history and love of country and tradition into an unforgettable family memoir.

Michael Ignatieff is a writer, historian, and politician. His many books include Scar Tissue, Blood and Belonging, and The Russian Album. Until 2000, he was a professor at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, and since May 2009 he has been the official leader of the Liberal Party of Canada.
