“From a rural school house in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, to burial in a hero’s cemetery at Babaoshan, China, Dorise Nielsen was an extraordinary person, champion of women’s rights, a communist, and the only woman elected to Canada’s House of Commons in 1940. A Great Restlessness is a finely crafted, well-researched biography of a Joan of Arc figure in Canadian politics.” —Stephen Endicott, Senior Scholar, York University
