The Veterans Charter and post-World War II Canada by Peter Neary( )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 1,387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rehabilitating Canada's armed forces to civilian life following World War II was a massive undertaking. The Veterans Charter, the program devised by the federal government to do this, promised to provide "opportunity with security" and was one of the building blocks of the Canadian welfare state. This collection of essays by some of Canada's leading historians explores the Charter's origins, history, and benefits as well as highlighting its role in the development of the Canadian welfare state and postwar society." "The achievements of this generation of Canadian veterans are sometimes downplayed; this collection of essays puts their achievements on the historical record and pays tribute to their memory and accomplishments."--Jacket

Yankee go home? : Canadians and anti-Americanism by J. L Granatstein( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether it is resentment over trade barriers, fear of cultural domination, disapproval of U.S. foreign policy, or merely old-fashioned jealousy of a more powerful neighbour, Canadians have made excellent anti-Americans. Yankee Go Home? traces the winding course of this feeling over two centuries - from the United Empire Loyalists who fled north to escape unbridled republicanism, through the early twentieth century when the barons of business were determined to keep out U.S. competition, to the post-war period when Canadian nationalists took up the cry. Granatstein maintains that what began as a justifiable fear of invasion eventually became a tool of the economic and political elites bent on preserving their power. At first, anti-Americanism was largely the Tory way of keeping pro-British attitudes uppermost in the minds of Canadians. Later, with the right wing embracing the free-trade deal, it became the most important weapon of the nationalist left. Today, anti-Americanism is weaker than ever before. And what of the future? Will we inevitably become more "American" in spite of ourselves? Can we even agree on what being "Canadian" means?
