Our understanding of Canada and China relations is at best slim. Evans puts the relationship into perspective but he also proves insights on how this relationship can grow. He tells us that there are no easy answers and cautions that developing a better relationship will take hard work and patience.

HASH(0x9cc5312c) out of 5 stars Highly recommended for those interested in the history of Canada-China relations, and the gaps that have emerged April 11 2015

Dr. Evans does a very good job in summarizing the policy agendas of Canadian leaders since the re-establishment of diplomatic ties with China in the 1970s. What is enjoyable about his book, is that it is well-researched, but more importantly, well written and very accessible to the reader - be it those who are experts on Canadian-China relations, and those who may be discovering this for the first time.

His book is timely as well, as the current government badly stumbles in trying to reconcile how to engage the growing (or re-emergin China) and how to balance CDN values with the growing economic realities of a stronger, more dominant China. What was particularly helpful was the chronology and details of CDN policy makers in the 1970s and 1980s offering the reader insight in terms of how Canada was actually ahead of rivals Australia, US and Japan to a degree..............leaving the reader with great appreciation of the 'catch up' work Canada needs to undertake now after a lack of concrete policy and 'engagement' over the past 9 years.
