Choice of force: special operations for Canada
Published for the School of Policy Studies, Queen's University by McGill-Queen's University Press, May 1, 2005 - History - 311 pages
"Canada must make strategic choices about the sort of special operations it will conduct and the forces it will develop to do so. What sort of world will we live in, twenty years from now? Our border with America, ethnic demography, and the minds of the next generation will be crucial. Will counter-terrorism be more important than stability operations and rule of law? Surveys in this volume tell us what our political and bureaucratic leaders expect of special operations, and military and academic researchers explore contemporary operations, new challenges, and factors that will shape Canada's engagement in the world through special operations in the coming decades."--BOOK JACKET.
