Review


PRAISE FOR Warrior Nation

"Thoroughly researched and surprisingly entertaining."—Globe & Mail

"Warrior Nation tells the story-the whole story. So if you are a peaceable person either by nature or intent, you would do well to listen to Jamie Swift and Ian McKay . . . before the last trumpet sounds."
Farley Mowat, author and veteran

"With our federal government determined to glorify war and eradicate our enduring attachment to Canada as a promoter of peace, this engaging and highly readable book alerts us to what's at stake-the very soul of our nation."
Linda McQuaig, author and journalist

"McKay and Swift offer a fresh and lively account of a deep ambivalence at the core of Canada's performance on the world stage-a handmaidento empires in the costume of a peacemaker. Here is essential reading."
Ernie Regehr, co-founder of Project Ploughshares

"Warrior Nation is intended to stir controversy, and it will. With compelling prose and abundant evidence . . . Ian McKay and Jamie Swift have written an important work of engaged and impassioned history, and it deserves a wide readership."
A. B. McKillop, Chancellor's Professor and former chair of the historydepartment, Carleton University

"This excellent and timely book offers a much needed corrective to the new warrior scholarship that is becoming so pervasive. It should be on the reading list of anyone who is interested in Canadian politics, international relations, and foreign policy."
Sandra Whitworth, political science, York University

"A welcome remedy to the 'Support Our Troops' yellow ribbon epidemic."
Francis Dupuis-Déri, political science, University of Quebec at Montreal, and anti-war activist and writer
