At last! A book that looks systematically at Canada’s place in the global system has long been needed, as an alternative to misleading ideas about Canada as a force for peace and democracy in the world or Canada as a nation subjugated by the US. Now we have one: Todd Gordon’s Imperialist Canada.
This looks like it will be a great resource for anyone concerned about what Canadian companies are up to in countries of the South, the oppression of indigenous people within Canada’s borders, the foreign policies of the federal government, etc.
See the event listings section for book launches in Toronto and Winnipeg in November. Hopefully there will be more in the months to come.
