The Art of the Possible: Government and Foreign Policy in Canada
This study, admirable in the logic of its organization and in the freshness of its style, provides an absorbing account of historical developments and current practices in the making of Canada's foreign policy. It analyses carefully and vividly the way in which the prime minister and members of his cabinet, members of the civil service, Parliament, and the military establishment have come together in peace and war to discover "the possible" for Canada's relations with other countries.
