Yankee Go Home?: Canadians and Anti-Americanism
"... full of surprising conclusions and feisty revisions of conventional wisdom". -- Quill & Quire
"... valuable and entertaining ... rich, engagingly presented history ..". -- The Globe and Mail
Respected historian and writer J.L. Granatstein never allows conventional wisdom to shoulder out historical truth in this opinionated and controversial exploration of anti-American sentiment throughout Canada's history. He convincingly shows that what began as a justifiable fear of invasion eventually became a tool of our economic and political elites bent on preserving their power.
Rich in personalities and points of view, Yankee Go Home? is a fresh look at what holds us together -- or drives us apart -- and will inform and infuriate.
