Where does Canada fit in on the world stage? As peacemaker or accomplice to war and empire? Just published, The Black Book of Canadian Foreign Policy sheds light on many dark corners of Canadian foreign policy–from troops that joined the British colonial war in Sudan in 1885 to neo-colonial war and occupations in Haiti, Iraq and Afghanistan today.
“We bear responsibility for what governments do in the world, primarily our own, but secondarily those we can influence, our allies in particular.Yves Engler’s penetrating inquiry yields a rich trove of valuable evidence about Canada’s role in the world and poses a challenge for citizens who are willing to take their fundamental responsibilities seriously.”- -Noam Chomsky
