Mr. Glazebrook flings a wide net, covering migration, trade, defence problems, and cultural and political relations, to reveal the significance of external relations in the history of Canada from earliest times. In the second part he traces the development of the foreign policy that emerged from that background. Canada's constitutionaldevelopment towards sovereign status in the years following 1914 brought w ith it the corollary that she should formulate and conduct her own foreign policy. Mr. Glazebrook shows,"against the backdrop of Canadian interest andthe character of the world scene, how a policy was worked out, and the nec essary means of implementing it were found." - from the dj.
