about

If an earthquake devastated the west coast of N orth America or if terrorists attacked the Toronto subway system, would Canadians be ready for a major military challenge in the 21st century? J. L. Granatstein says never mind hypothetical threats; our military is incapable of dealing with current and ongoing crises that require well-trained, well-equipped and properly deployed troops, supported by a confidentmilitary policy.

Following a new preface that assesses the changes since Stephen Harper’s government took office, Granatstein expands his argument to issues that include the protection of our northern sovereignty; negotiation with U.S. policymakers when anti-American sentiment colours our military and foreign policy; and the cloudy issue of exactly what constitutes Canada’s “national interests.” Discerning, reasoned and passionate, Whose War Is It? asks the hard-hitting questions that must be addressed before it’s too late.
