The Black Book of Canadian Foreign Policy is the first critical overview of Canada’s role on the world stage. While most Canadians believe their country’s primary role has been as peacekeeper or honest broker in difficult-to-solve disputes, the book cites hundreds of examples of colonialism, racism, naked self-interest and willing participation as a policeman for the British and then American empires.
“Yves Engler’s penetrating inquiry yields a rich trove of valuable evidence about Canada’s role in the world.”
— Noam Chomsky
