Canadian Foreign Policy in Critical Perspective is a provocative collection of thirteen original essays that questions many of the basic assumptions in Canadian foreign policy and much of its conventional wisdom. By taking a self-consciously critical approach to specific issues, the authors encourage students to question their own assumptions and investigate alternative ways of thinking about Canada's place in the world and its relations with other nations. With a strong Canadian focus, this text gives students access to cutting-edge research on topics like Canada's ongoing involvement in Afghanistan, Canada-US border policy, the scarcity of French-language literature on Canadian foreign policy, and more. The book also makes original contributions to the literature on Canadian foreign policy through coverage of cases, issues, and dilemmas that have been neglected in the existing literature.
