Description: Women's rights. Pornography. Free trade. Canadian unity. Globalization. Human rights. There isn't an issue that Maude Barlow hasn't met head on with passion and determination. She does battle with the best -- Conrad Black, Paul Martin, Brian Mulroney and Peter Lougheed are just a few of her powerful opponents. Now, in a mid-life biography that is as engaging, as spirited and as astute as its subject, Maude Barlow tells her own story -- the story of a woman who has the courage of her convictions and convictions aplenty about people, politics and her country.

The Fight of My Life is the account of a "nice" middle-class girl who dared to fight the establishment -- and became a role model for an entire generation of women. She is the feminist who plunged into the "porn wars", taking on Playboy and June Callwood, who personally attacked her in The Globe and Mail. She is the political woman, a strong Liberal who was the first to sound the alarm over the party's dismantling of Canada's social programs and went on to build the Council of Canadians into the most powerful citizens' advocacy group in Canada.

Realizing that the most effective change comes from outside the system, she has eschewed party politics for a life that has taken her from the slums and prisons of Mexico's infamous maquiladoras to the seat of Iraqi power on the eve of the Gulf War. Most recently, she has successfully led a global coalition to defeat the Multilateral Agreement on Investment.
