About this product
- DescriptionDo Canada and the United States share a special relationship, or is this a mere myth that has masked stark calculations of national interest? Recent tensions over the Iraq War and ballistic missile defence have resurrected this perennial Canadian debate and triggered alarm about whether the US would make coercive linkages between issues to force Canada to change its policies. The Politics of Linkage cuts through political rhetoric and academic clich s by offering detailed accounts of postwar disputes over nuclear weapons, Arctic waters, oil and gas, and the Iraq War. Although early Cold War disputes were governed by a diplomatic culture that was genuinely special, the limits of Canadian automy are w defined by the ever-shifting alignment of interest groups in Washington and by international agreements and organizations.
