Patricia Molloy breaks new ground with this inter-disciplinary examination of contentious events within and beyond Canada, their relationship to and impact on Canada/US relations, and Canadian political and cultural identity both before and after 9/11. Canada/US and Other Unfriendly Relations examines conceptual issues of war and warfare, sovereignty and violence, multiculturalism, citizenship and identity, human rights and international law. Molloy draws on key theorists in a range of disciplines including sociology, anthropology, international relations, philosophy, Canadian studies, cultural studies, and critical race theory, and gives a close analysis of how myths of Canadian benevolence are circulated in Canadian and American media, from mainstream news to popular television, film, and the Internet. What emerges is a story of a conflicted and stormy relationship between two neighboring countries who rival and envy each other while failing to understand the other.
