Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to a new publication, Canada as a Selective Power.

The monograph presents our own perspective on Canada's contemporary foreign policy and on its position and role(s) in the dynamically changing international affairs. In the book, we argue that since 1989 Canadian foreign policy has moved from the more modest aims of a "middle-power" to a more self-assertive role of a "selective power" pursuing more narrowly chosen priorities - and often based on "simple profit and loss calculations" that have clashed with Canada's traditional favorable image in the world.

The book is available both in paper version and as an e-book
