Linda McQuaig is not an expert. Therein lies an important strength of her book on the Canadian tax system, Behind Closed Doors: How The Rich Won Control of Canada's Tax System ... And Ended Up Richer. Because she is not an expert she has not relied on an insider's knowledge of technical points and jargon and neither has she gotten caught up in a particular disciplines's specialist concerns. Rather, as a good journalist, she has provided a lucid critique of the tax system which will be of interest to anyone concerned with how the tax system is or how it came to be.
