The Road to Peace

Book - 1988
Rate this:
In 1988, as the Berlin Wall began to quake and the United States and the Soviet Union prepared to slash their nuclear arsenals, Canada's government remained firmly tied to a Cold War vision of the world.
In this book, Regehr and Rosenblum assessed the international strategic situation at the very moment that the superpowers' nuclear standoff began to melt away. Against the backdrop of significant undertakings to halt the drift towards annihilation, the authors' find much to criticize in Canadian defence policy: complicity in reckless American war-fighting strategies; undue adherence to organizations such as NATO and NORAD whose justifications were fast disappearing; a retrograde approach to defending Arctic sovereignty.
The Road to Peace is a compelling document that vividly conveys the heady atmosphere of the Cold War's apogee.
