O.D. Skelton : the work of the world, 1923-1941 by Oscar D Skelton( )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Skelton was a towering foreign policy advisor to Canada's prime ministers and a lonely advocate for the country's independence from Great Britain. His accounts detail his work as he co-operated and clashed with William Lyon Mackenzie King and R.B. Bennett over Canada's participation in the international arena. Norman Hillmer's selection and assessment of Skelton's writings offer a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the federal government as Skelton systematically built up the Department of External Affairs and the Canadian diplomatic service as instruments of the national interest, confronted the Manchurian, Ethiopian, and Czech crises of the 1930s, aligned himself with senior francophone politicians such as Ernest Lapointe and Raoul Dandurand, and watched in despair as Europe and Asia descended into war

Negotiating freer trade : the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, and the trade agreements of 1938 by Ian M Drummond( )

15 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On November 17, 1938, Great Britain, the United States, and Canada, after four years of discussion and manoeuvre, signed two wide-ranging and interlocking trade agreements. A few large elements dominated the talks. The Americans wanted to breach the walls of the British imperial preferential tariff system. The British were anxious to retain markets and political support in the British dominions and the Baltic, while protecting their domestic agriculture and improving political relations with the United States. Canada, whose acquiescence and co-operation were necessitated by the pre-existing

O.D. Skelton : a portrait of Canadian ambition by Norman Hillmer( )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Skelton’s importance in Ottawa was unparalleled, and his role in shaping Canada’s world was formative and crucial. Using research from archives across Canada and around the world, Norman Hillmer presents Skelton not only as a towering intellectual force but as deeply human – deceptively quiet, complex, and driven by an outsize ambition for himself and for his country. O.D. Skelton is the definitive biography of the most influential public servant in Canada’s history, written by one of the most prolific Canadian historians of international affairs and the editor of Skelton’s voluminous papers."--pub. desc
Canadas of the mind : the making and unmaking of Canadian nationalisms in the twentieth century( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the vantage point of a new century, the volume reconstructs and re-evaluates dimensions of twentieth-century Canadian nationalisms - their meanings, their uses, their contradictions, and the forces that push them toward and away from one another. A diverse group of experts analyse these nationalisms from a range of cultural, economic, intellectual, technological, political, international, and military perspectives. By probing deeply into Canada’s multiple allegiances and identities, Canadas of the Mind offers visions of the nation that will define the country and its constituent parts in the early twenty-first century and beyond."--from pub. description
