    schema:description ""Like estranged best friends, two democracies go from sharing their dreams to forgetting what they had in common--and wondering if they can still trust one another. In the early 1990s, North America was the vibrant centre of an increasingly democratic and revitalized western hemisphere. The United States and Canada were close allies working together to implement a bilateral free trade agreement and build an integrated manufacturing and export economy. By the late 2000s, the economic and diplomatic ties between the two countries were strained as policies stagnated or slipped backward and passports were needed to cross the border for the first time in history. In Strangers with Memories, John Stewart combines an insider's account, a mole's perspective, and a historian's consciousness to explain how two countries that spent the twentieth century building a world order together drifted so quickly apart in the early years of the twenty-first. Assessing the major forces and events in North America's development between 1990 and 2010, this book also details changes at the US embassy in Ottawa during those years and its relationship with US consulates in Canada and with the State Department's Canada desk. Arguing that Canada's influence among the world powers radically diminished as a result of historical events, Stewart gives valuable advice on how Canada should handle US relations and anticipates what lies ahead. From the viewpoint of a Canadian with a front-row seat to two decades of US-Canada relations, Strangers with Memories uncovers startling facts about one of the most extraordinary bilateral relationships in the world."--"@en ;
