Editorial Reviews

"Overall [this text] does have a unique contribution to existing Canadian foreign-policy textbooks. . . . it is an attempt to carve out a space that is less addressed by the other existing textbooks. . . . The overall argumentation is quite excellent, and I think there is a space for thistextbook in the field." --Dan Bousfield, Western University
