During a government career that spanned nearly the whole of the Cold War, George Roy Lindsey gained a reputation as a leading defence scientist and military strategist for Canada's Defence Research Board. Having influenced Canadian policy in such important areas as air defence, anti-submarine warfare, and the militarization of space, Lindsey's writings spanning his career with the Department of National Defence, shed light not only on one of Canada's most influential civil servants of the Cold War era, but on the inner-workings of the Canadian defence establishment during the nuclear age. The Selected Works of George R. Lindsey provides full access to a wealth of valuable, previously classified, historical material regarding the scientific and technical aspects of Canadian defence and national security in the Cold War. Lindsey's writings clarify Canada's approach to the strategic issues of the nuclear age, while his first-hand experience is valuable for understanding the role and structure of the postwar Canadian defence establishment.
