Foreign policy, security, and strategic studies.
Summary "Based on extensive archival research, Towards a Francophone Community is the first in-depth study of Canada's foreign policy toward France and the former French colonies. Robin Gendron rebuts the argument of Quebec nationalists and scholars that the Canadian government's neglect of French Africa forced Quebec to develop its own international identity. He shows that there had been active federal interest in French African affairs since the late 1940s, within the context of developments in NATO and the Cold War, the vagaries of Canada's relations with France, and the Quiet Revolution in Quebec."--Jacket
