REFORD, Robert. Canada and Three Crises. Toronto : The Canadian Institute of International Affairs, (1968). Pp. (6),[vii]-xii,-246,(2). 8vo, red cloth, black lettering to spine. No. 42 in the Contemporary Affairs Series. Robert William Reford (b. May 1, 1921, London, England - d. May 9, 2006, Crescent Beach, N.S.). "We live in an age of crisis. Almost every year, the world faces a situation where it seems to hover on the brink of war. How doesCanada behave in time of crisis? Can it remain aloof? What are its obligat ions, as a member of the international community and as a member of the Western alliance? Is its freedom of action limited because it lives in the shadow of the United States? Can the fact that it is a Middle Power, untaintedby a colonial reputation, be put to advantage? Robert Reford has studied t he case histories of three world crises - the Offhore Islands of China, Suez in 1956. and the Cuba Missile Crisis - and examined Canada's reaction to them. From these, he has drawn certain conclusions about Canada's foreign policy. The result is an absorbing study of Canada's role in international affairs, containing information never made public before. It is a valuable contribution to contemporary history, of importance both to scholars and to all Canadians interested in the part their country has played in the world." (from the dj).
