About This Book
A passionate argument for Canada's reassertion of its place on the world stage, from a former prime minister and one of Canada's most respected political figures.
     In the world that is taking shape, Canada's unique success as a diverse society and its reputation as a sympathetic and respected international partner are invaluable assets--at least as valuable as the country's natural resource wealth. As the world becomes more competitive and complex, and the chances of deadly conflict grow, the example and the initiative of Canada can become more important than ever. However, its assets will lose their value if Canadians don't recognize or use them, or worse, if they waste them.
     How We Lead is a compelling examination of what kind of a nation Canada has been, has become and could yet be. A successful foreign minister himself during the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of Apartheid, Joe Clark employs anecdote and analysis to take readers beyond formal foreign policy and shows how innovative organizations and individuals can put Canada's unique combination of assets to work and renew Canada's constructive influence on international events.
