Doing the Continental: A New Canadian-American Relationship (Dundurn Press)
Canadaís relations with the United States are broad and deep, and with Barack Obama in the White House, the two countries are about to enter what could be a new era of hope and renewal. From water and energy policies to defence, environmental strategy and arctic sovereignty, David Dyment provides an astute, pithy analysis of the past, present, and future continental dance between two countries that have much in common, yet often step on each otherís feet.
David Dyment is a research associate at Carleton University in the Centre on North American Politics and Society. He has served on the staff of the governor general of Canada and was a senior policy adviser in the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade. As a media commentator, he has been heard on CBC News network, CTV Newsnet, Global TV, CBC Radio, Radio Canada, BBC World, and Radio Canada International. He lives in Ottawa.
