Dreamland: How Canada’s Pretend Foreign Policy Has Undermined Sovereignty

Short-listed for the Donner Prize

Price: $19.99

Review from J.L. Granatstein, Fellow, Canadian Defence and Foreign Affairs Institute:
“For too long, Canadians have seemed to prefer living in a cloud cuckoo land to hard realism. Not Roy Rempel. His book argues for the centrality of the United States to Canada and calls for Canadians to base their foreign and defence policies on a clear understanding on their national interests. Tough, hard-hitting, clear-headed, this is a book for our governments and our citizens to ponder.”
