In this extraordinary collection, major thinkers offer passionate polemics on the major issues of the 20th century. Here are King on race and prejudice- Galbraith on economics and poverty- Jacobs on Canadian cities and Quebec separatism- Goodman on the moral ambiguity of America- Brandt on international peace- Kierans on globalism and the nation-state- and much more.

Their words not only have considerable historical significance but also remain hugely relevant to the problems we face today. At last, a selection of these “lost” lectures is available to a world so hungry for, and yet in such short supply of, innovative ideas. The Lost Massey Lectures includes an introduction by veteran CBC producer Bernie Lucht.
