In the intervening twoand a half critical years the high hopes of wartime evaporated in disillus ion, and were replaced by an all-pervading fear: a fear which deepened and gradually overcame the reluctance to believe that an any of one war might be the enemy in the next; and ultimately led to bold and determined attemptsto seize the initiative in the cold war. In an admirably lucid exposition of this uneasy period, Professor Spencer describes its significance to Canada because of the repudiation of both isolationism and the era of "no commitments', accompanied by the conscious effort to formulate coherent Canadianforeign policy.” - from the dj.
