Summary "To determine the government's commitment to a comprehensive mobilization strategy, Michael Stevenson considers the effect of National Selective Service policies on eight significant sectors of the Canadian population: Native Canadians, university students, war industry workers, coal miners, long-shoremen, meatpackers, hospital nurses, and textile workers. These case studies show that mobilization officials achieved only a limited number of their regulatory goals and that Ottawa's attempt to organize and allocate the nation's military and civilian human resources on a rational, orderly, and efficient scale was largely ineffective."--Jacket
