An internationalist's lament that Canada is increasingly focussing more on its own problems than foreign ones. Written before Harper's influence became obvious it avoids the current trap of assuming our current views are his 'fault' since the change long predates him. I found little positive here.

Awesome book. It's a little out of date, but that doesn't mean it's not good. I suggest everyone read this book!

".. Perhaps he resented that Pearson had given a speech in Philadelphia urging Johnson to halt the bombing in Vietnam. Pearson's unsolicited advice provoked a volcanic eruption from LBJ, who was livid that Pearson had criticized him in his backyard. "You pissed on my rug!" the president lectured the prime minister afterwards, grabbing him by the lapels and nearly lifting him off his feet."
