Building a Partnership: The Canada-United States Free Trade Agreement is a selection of papers and commentary, drawn from a September 1998 conference held at Michigan State University, examines in detail the Canada-United States Free Trade Agreement. The work underscores how this pact paved the way for the North American Free Trade Agreement. The work also includes essays written by Canadian and American policy makers, including Derek Burney and James Baker, III; these are augmented by a series of insightful papers and commentary written by scholars and informed observers. Roger Porter, from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, summarizes and places the Canada-United States Free Trade Agreement into a framework for the future, one that includes trade agreements with other countries in the Western Hemisphere. This analysis of Canada's bilateral trade agreement with the United States is timely and thought-provoking.
