This dramatic reappraisal of the background to the suspension of democratic institutions in Newfoundland in the early 1930s argues that the events of this period laid the foundation for Confederation with Canada and represent the central, pivotal point in Newfoundland history.


“What is particularly interesting about Suspended State is that it deals with the Acts of Newfoundland and British Parliaments that set Newfoundland on its collision course with confederation. Suspended State is a book that must be read by anyone who is remotely interested in Newfoundland History.”

– John C. Perlin

“Mandatory reading, both in Ireland and in Newfoundland and, for that matter, anywhere in the developing world.”

– David Cobb, NewfoundIreland News
