"Informative and entertaining ... Recounts with considerable verve the saga of Canadian-American relations over more than two centuries." Times Literary Supplement ----- "Fast-paced, informative, readable ... At once an impressive piece of scholarship and definitive work in the field." Historian ----- "Refreshingly sensitive to Canadian misperceptions of the United States as well as to the perennial American ignorance of Canada" New York Times Book Review ----- "An important book that promises to become the standard in the field . . . The reader is rewarded with a fair and insightful historical perspective of the complex North American relationship." Journal of American History ----- "First rate ... Should be considered for class adoption." American Review of Canadian Studies
