Imperialist Canada
by Todd Gordon

Book Description:

Imperialist Canada exposes Canada’s imperialist past and present, at home and across the globe. Todd Gordon interweaves histories of indigenous dispossession in Canada with the cold facts of Canadian capital’s oppression of peoples in the global South. The book digs beneath the surface of Canada’s image as global peacekeeper and promoter of human rights, revealing the links between the corporate pursuit of profit and Canadian foreign and domestic policy. Drawing on examples from Colombia, the Congo, Sudan, Haiti and elsewhere, Imperialist Canada makes a passionate plea for greater critical attention to Canada’s role in the global order.

About Todd Gordon:

Todd Gordon is a social justice activist who completed his Ph.D. in political
science at York University. His articles have appeared in Studies in Political Economy, Canadian Review of Social Policy and Capital and Class. He is also an editor of New Socialist magazine.

Praise for Imperialist Canada

This outstanding book will change the way all of us think about Canadian history, culture, and political economy. Documenting Canada’s oppression of indigenous peoples at home, and the plunder, racism and violence of Canadian multinationals abroad, Gordon shows that Canada’s elites are part of a world power structure built on colonialism, racism and dispossession.”

— David McNally, York University, author of Another World is Possible: Globalization and Anti-Capitalism

A tour de force, a must-read for anyone concerned with bringing about a new world without capital.”

— Henry Veltemeyer, St. Mary’s University, author with James Petras of Globalization Unmasked: Imperialism in the 21st Century

Imperialist Canada provides crucial insights into the new forms of Canadian imperialism. Rather than blindly endorse the mythologies of ‘peacekeeper’ and ‘good neighbour’, Gordon dissects the grim realities of the Canadian state and capitalism.”

— Greg Albo, co-author (with Sam Gindin and Leo Panitch) of In and Out of Crisis: The Global Financial Meltdown and Left Alternatives

If you assume Canada always acts as a benign force in the world you should read this book. You may be surprised.”

— Thomas Walkom, Columnist, Toronto StarSee more

First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!
