At home, Canada is thought to enjoy a "special" relationship with the United States; abroad, it occupies a place as the world's problem solver and peacekeeper. The author analyzes six key events in the history of relations between the two countries to reveal the underlying connection between the Canada-US relationship and Canada's place in the world. The war in Afghanistan is but the latest in a series of paradoxical interactions between the two states abroad that has resulted from the hierarchy in Canada-US relations at home. Innovative and sophisticated, this book is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding Canada's place in the world."@en ;
