Smoke and Mirrors provides a detailed account of Canada's continuing battle against the devastating effects of cigarettes. As an historical analysis, it consistently takes us behind the scenes in the tobacco war and is sure to interest Southern stakeholders who wish to learn from the Canadian experience. Author Rob Cunningham, lawyer, activist, and policy analyst for the Canadian Cancer Society, has produced a seminal reference that exposes the truth behind the century-old Canadian tobacco war.
