"Swain's account is honest and forthright and well worth the read for insight into a rarely examined aspect of government...The text should form a foundation for the education and training of federal and provincial officials working in aboriginal affairs. In his sojourn into this important domain, Harry Swain has learned some things from which others in similar circumstances ought to benefit."

"Harry Swain’s Oka: A Political Crisis and Its Legacy makes fascinating contributions to answering this question...The book is written in refreshingly lively language, and is peppered with occasionally blunt formulations that make it clear that Swain is anything but a bloodless bureaucrat."

“As an outspoken insider without a political reputation to protect, Swain isn't shy to talk about the oversights, mistakes and miscues that triggered the [Oka] crisis…[He] provides useful insights into Ottawa's version of events and thoughtful analysis of what still needs to be done to right the wrongs of 500 years, at Oka and in scores of other aboriginal communities across the country.”
