Book Launch: ‘Your Country, My Country’ and ‘O.D. Skelton’

  • George Ignatieff Theatre 15 Devonshire Place Toronto, ON, M5S 2C8 Canada

Join the Graham Centre for the launch of two major books on Canadian foreign relations and Canadian-American relations, by two of the leading scholars in the field.
Robert Bothwell, who holds the Gluskin Chair in Canadian History at the University of Toronto, has produced “Your Country, My Country: A Unified History of the United States and Canada”, which sheds light on the histories of both countries and their complicated relationship. Norman Hillmer, Professor of History at Carleton University, has written “O.D. Skelton: A Portrait of Canadian Ambition”, the definitive biography of the public servant who charted Canada’s pursuit of an independent foreign policy and a destiny as a North American Nation in the early decades of the 20th Century. Both works will establish themselves as required reading for serious students of Canadian history. Kim Nossal of Queen’s University will comment.
