A revisionist view of the Rebellion. Flanagan examines the land claims and surveys issue and concludes that bureaucratic bungling and the failure of the Métis and their clerical advisors to understand the system were more to blame than any real malice on the government's part. He also examines Riel's trial and concludes that under the laws and standards prevailing in 1885 the trial was a fair one.
