About this title


Traces the history of U.S.-Canadian relations, compares the philosophies, commercial interests, and politics of the two nations, and analyzes their agreements on the environment, fisheries, and energy


"Doran, director of the Center of Canadian Studies at Johns Hopkins, has written and excellent analysis of the Canada-U.S. partnership. Using three dimensions of analysis, the political-strategic, the trade-commercial, and the psycho-logical-cultural, he closely examines the Canadian Energy Policy, the law of the sea, the environment, and fisheries. He concludes that prerequisites of the partnership are a vision, a strategy, and U.S. leadership. Doran's book is highly recommended for collections in Canadian-American studies as an alternative analysis to the pro-Canadian nationalist views expressed by Stephen Clarkson in Canada and the Reagan Challenge." -- Library Journal

"This well organized and readable volume is an important and in anumber of respects original contribution to understanding of the most complex network of interactions and intervulnerabilities between sovereign countires in the non-communist world... Forgotten Parntership comprises the best single, succinct, imaginative, analytical tour d'horizon of the persisting issues, problems, misperceptions, and policy alternatives for Americans who are seriously interested in international affairs and United States foreign policy but who have so far accorded little attention to Canadian dimensions. It should also be required reading virtually in toto for students in courses focused on United States-Canada relations, and at least in parts for courses wherein Canadian aspects are relevant to more general topics or theoretical concerns. While most of the facts and many of the interpretations therein will be familiar to Americans who regularly follow Canadian affairs, Doran's framework and a number of his insights are both original and more productive than tose of most of the rather repetitive and frequently more detailed and technical recent studies by other American Canada hands. While appropriately directed primarily at American readers, this book should provide Canadians with improved understanding of American attitudes, priorities, politics, and policy-maiking pertinent to their interests. Doran further offers constructive observations and critiques of Canadian perceptions and actions which Canadians should seriously consider." -- American Review of Canadian Studies

"Professor Doran has approached the relationship forma breathtakingly unfamiliar intellectual vantage point, passed hurriedly over the conventional wisdom and detailed evidence of the traditional analysts, yet succeeded in pointing to the profound structural changes and resulting policy needs, in the Canada-United States relationship of the 1980s. The exceptional creativity of Doran's analysis stems fromhis central proposition that 'to understand relations between Canada and the United States one must understand the politics of the international system as a whole.' It is this vision that wisely leads him to dispense with much of the tactical advice routinely offered for improving the relationship, to look back in a disciplined fashion at the position of the two countries in the previous century, and to identify the structural changes now occurring in the relationship." -- International Journal
