For the first time, journalist Deidra Roberts-Clayton reveals the financial and corporate workings of Hockey Canada, the NHL Players Association, the NHL-WHA merger, and the International World Hockey Tournaments.

Alan Eagleson - World Hockey Czar, union boss for the National Hockey League Players Association, business agent, Tory politician, investment counsellor, entrepreneur, negotiator extraordinaire - is undoubtedly one of sports most celebrated and controversial figures. This unauthorized biography takes us inside the Eagleson empire. Roberts-Clayton draws an uncompromising picture of the public and private man through dozens of interviews with hockey greats - Bobby Orr, Marcel Dionne, Darryl Sittler - to Eaglesons own financial advisors and business colleagues.

Above all, Eagle is a fascinating, penetrating biography of a complex individual who, perhaps more than anyone, has changed the face of sport in Canada.
