Your Country, My Country : A Unified History of the United States and Canada, by Robert Bothwell.
Call Number: F1029.5 U6 B68 2015
From the introduction: “In times of crisis in Canada the occasional television pundit flashes onto the screen so that American television audiences can manage to be both startled and bored at the same time. An exception in 2013-4 was the reaction to Toronto’s telegenic mayor, Rob Ford, who became America’s best-known Canadian, far out-snorting the Canadian prime minister, the thin-lipped Stephen Harper. Certainly Ford gave Canada exposure and raised justifiable questions about the people who elected him. These are not flattering questions but at the same time, as kindly Americans have pointed out, the same questions have frequently been asked about similarly buffoonish American politicians. This book attempts to answer some of these questions and it takes as its starting point that sympathetic insight—if you’ve got them, we’ve got them too.”
