Book Description

Oct. 21 2008

In the wake of the North American Free Trade Agreement and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, renowned public intellectual and scholar Stephen Clarkson asks whether North America "exists" in the sense that the European Union has made Europe exist.

Clarkson's rigorous study of the many political and economic relationships that link Canada, the United States, and Mexico answers this unusual question by looking at the institutions created by NAFTA, a broad selection of economic sectors, and the security policies put in place by the three neighbouring countries following 9/11. This detailed, meticulously researched, and up-to-date treatment of North America's transborder governance allows the reader to see to what extent the United States' dominance in the continent has been enhanced or mitigated by trilateral connections with its two continental partners.

An illuminating product of seven years' political-economy, international-relations, and policy research, Does North America Exist? is an ambitious and path-breaking study that will be essential reading for those wanting to understand whether the continent containing the world's most powerful nation is holding its own as a global region.

Review

‘Stephen Clarkson has produced a very impressive work that is not just of the moment, but has been composed over many years and will have an equally long shelf life. In an age of quantity over quality and the tendency to focus on the ‘smallest publishable fragment’, Clarkson has written a magisterial work that almost defies description. ’ (Geoff Martin, The Round Table; vol 100 August 2011)

5.0 out of 5 stars North America as a political and economic entity that is currently becoming an economically integrated trading block Dec 11 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The 'North American Free Trade Agreement' and the American reaction to the Islamic fundamentalist attach of September 11, 2001 were to affect the relationship of the United States, Canada, and Mexico in ways that were previously unheard of an unimaginable. "Does North America Exist?: Governing The Continent After NAFTA And 9/11" by academician and scholar Stephen Clarkson is a seminal body of exhaustive scholarship specifically addressing the question of North America as a political and economic entity that is currently in the process of becoming a tri-part economically integrated trading block -- and the forces striving to prevent it on the grounds of national protectionism, immigration and national security issues, and political identity. "Does North America Exist?" addresses such cogent factors as institutional and judicial implications, water and environmental protection concerns, the role of corporations, capital markets, intellectual copyrights, border security, and national defense. Thoughtful and thought-provoking, a model of seminal scholarship, and a well documented body of original research, "Does North America Exist?" is a highly recommended addition to personal, corporate, governmental, academic, and community library 20th Century Economics and Political Science studies collections in general, and NAFTA reference/supplemental reading lists in particular.
