So Near Yet So Far
The Public and Hidden Worlds of Canada-US RelationsBook - 2012
How do politicians, diplomats, and interest groups negotiate the tangled web of Canada - US relations? So Near Yet So Far provides in-depth look at the multiple dimensions of this complex relationship, especially in the period since 9/11. Based on almost 200 interviews with current and former government policy makers, opinion-shapers, and interest group leaders in both countries, the book analyzes the motives and mechanics of managing cross-border relations at several levels, including political-strategic, trade-commercial, cultural-psychological, and institutional-procedural. A concluding chapter assesses the implications of current policy trends for Canada’s foreign and international economic policies.
