Few moments in Canadian history are as intriguing as the political battle between Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and the "Gang of Eight" provincial premiers who opposed his plans to "patriate" Canada's constitution from Britain.

Patriation and Its Consequences revisits these constitutional negotiations, including the personalities, visions, and political struggles that shaped the resulting constitutional agreement.

Focusing on the players behind the process, including First Nations and feminist activists, this volume explores the long shadow of patriation: the alienation of Quebec, the character of Canadian federalism, Aboriginal treaty rights, and the struggle to ensure gender equality.
