The author R. Nelson Haas died sometime before he could complete work on his manuscript tentatively titled Existential Liberalism and the Republic of Canada. His death at the hands of the ESK Killer is exposed in the scholarly edition of this work, recently completed by editor Robert Von Stricker Beresford. I hope that you will see this blog as a continuation of his work even though I am not related to him in any way. As part of this, I have offered to provide the excised appendices of Existential Liberalism for Mr. Von Stricker Beresford. I hope I can do justice to my late colleague.
