Product Details

Product Description


"Civil defence in Cold War Canada is largely uncharted territory, and this rich, pioneering study reveals the political, psychological, and practical challenges of trying to generate popular preparedness for the unthinkable: a nuclear holocaust at home. Burtch's complex yet lively narrative not only engages existing scholarly debates, but should launch new ones as well." - P. Whitney Lackenbauer, co-author of Arctic Front: Defending Canada in the Far North --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

Based on evidence from recently opened document collections, Give Me Shelter uncovers the myriad reasons for the failure of Canada’s nuclear civil defence efforts during the Cold War.
