From the Back Cover:
"Much time and government funding has been spent in the public contemplation of the question of nationalism. All that anyone can seem to agree on is that Canadians are NOT American. Any other statement made about Canadians pales in the face of this one.
Being NOT something else is the guiding principle around which the whole of Canadian society is based. French Canadians have less of a difficulty with being NOT American, but are equally obsessed with protecting their identity and being NOT English Canadian, so the principle is the same."
Xenophobia is an irrational fear of foreigners, probably justified, always understandable.
Xenophobe's Guides - an irreverent look at the beliefs and foibles of nations, almost guaranteed to cure Xenophobia.
About the Author:
Born in Alberta to two pastors, Vaughn Roste has spent most of his life in the Canadian Bible Belt. In spite of this, he has managed to become an normal flawed human being.

A graduate in theology and music, he manages to tear himself away from his computer every summer and spends a good four months living in a tent and planting trees in the Canadian wilderness. Travels have taken him through the United States and Europe and on to Togo, Israel, Colombia, and El Salvador, sometimes on government or church sponsored programmes. He has lived near most of the major Canadian transport systems: the Alaska Highway, the Trans-Canada, the St Lawrence River, and the Yellowhead Highway. Thus, if he hasn't quite visited all of Canada he has certainly had good access to it.

In all of this he feels quite Canadian, and proudly so, and proves this patriotism by leaving the country whenever possible. Ostensibly to promote awareness of Canada throughout the world, he does so in fact as a ploy to avoid shovelling the walk.
