Invisible and Inaudible in Washington: American Policies Toward Canada

Front Cover
Edelgard Mahant and Graeme Mount examine details of White House policyfrom 1945 to the 1980s to assess the extent to which the United Statescould be said to have had a Canada policy. They challenge the popularnationalist view that Canada has been treated as peripheral anddependent, but also counter the opposing view that Washington hasrespected Canadian advice and benefitted from it. Instead, they arguethat for the most part Canada has mattered little in Washington andthat America's Canada policy is largely an ad hoc affair.
