In October 2015, Canadians elected a prime minister who promised to rehabilitate Canada's reputation globally. Justin Trudeau, "the free world's best hope" according to Rolling Stone Magazine, cultivated his image as a staunch advocate for a generous, liberal international order: maintaining peace, helping migrants and refugees, seeking dialogue and enhancing relations with other countries, and reengagement with the UN. Foreign affairs expert Jocelyn Coulon had a front row seat as a key Liberal party advisor during the election and early days of the Trudeau government. Coulon describes the ambitious policy proposals of candidate Trudeau. He analyses some key actions of Trudeau the prime minister. What he sees is more of the same approach that came from the ten years of Harper government. Coulon focuses on the Trudeau campaign to win a UN Security Council seat in 2020 — a campaign he sees as doomed to failure. He describes how an election commitment to re-engage Canadian forces in peacekeeping yielded a carefully-developed plan to send troops to Africa — which Trudeau and his closest advisors killed at the last minute. In other areas, like relations with China, the United States and Russia, looking good in the media triumphs over careful policy making to advance Canadian interests. Readers interested in Justin Trudeau's approach to international affairs will find this a timely, engaging, and revealing book.
The Canadian Auto Workers union has a long and rich history: part of the U.S.-based United Auto Workers for almost fifty years, the CAW separated from its American parent in 1985. Today, it is one of the most powerful unions in the country, yet few people know the union's history or what accounts for the split with its American parent. This illustrated history provides a fascinating look at the union from its origins to the present, describing the early years of the automobile industry and the emergence of GM, Ford, and Chrysler. It looks at the birth of the UAW in 1936, the conflicts that rocked the union in the fifties, the signing of theAutopact in the sixties, and the historic split of the Canadian section from the UAW two decades later. Finally, it considers the issues facing the union and the Canadian labour movement as the 20th century drew to a close. Profiling the CAW as well as the labour and social movements that it helped shape, The Canadian Auto Workers offers something unusual--an engrossing glimpse of Canada's past, written from a union perspective.

With transnational migration reaching unprecedented levels in Canada, the need for new trajectories of intercultural understanding and minority-relevant policy has never been greater. Through an interdisciplinary approach, these essays provide readings of how the social structures of Canada and of the respective countries of origin -- including their ethnicity, ancestry, and lineage -- interact to shape the identities, expectations, and aspirations of African Canadians.

Throughout history most people have associated northern North America with wilderness – with abundant fish and game, snow-capped mountains, and endless forest and prairie. Canada’s contemporary picture gallery, however, contains more disturbing images – deforested mountains, empty fisheries, and melting ice caps. Adopting both a chronological and thematic approach, Laurel MacDowell examines human interactions with the land, and the origins of our current environmental crisis, from first peoples to the Kyoto Protocol. This richly illustrated exploration of the past from an environmental perspective will change the way Canadians and others around the world think about – and look at – Canada.
Volume three of the official history of Canada's Department of External Affairs offers readers an unparalleled look at the evolving structures underpinning Canadian foreign policy from 1968 to 1984. Using untapped archival sources and extensive interviews with top-level officials and ministers, the volume presents a frank "insider's view" of work in the Department, its key personalities, and its role in making Canada's foreign policy. In doing so, the volume presents novel perspectives on Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and the country's responses to the era's most important international challenges. These include the October Crisis of 1970, recognition of Communist China, UN peacekeeping, decolonization and the North-South dialogue, the Middle East and the Iran Hostage crisis, and the ever-dangerous Cold War.
It isn’t always easy being Canadian, according to Will Ferguson, but it can be a lot of fun. Asked to write a follow-up to his runaway bestseller Why I Hate Canadians, Ferguson, who’s Canadian himself, recruited his brother Ian — comedy writer and executive producer of the Canadian series Sin City and a Canadian too — to create this ultimate guide to the country's cultural quirks. The result is a hilarious inside look at that unique species, the Canadian, and their thoughts on such diverse subjects as beer, sex, dating rituals, sports, politics, religion, social rules — and, of course, their trademark death-defying search for the middle of any road.
