The Politics of Linkage

Power, Interdependence, and Ideas in Canada-US Relations

Do Canada and the United States share a special relationship, or is this just a face-saving myth? The Politics of Linkage cuts through the rhetoric that clouds this debate by offering detailed accounts of four major bilateral disputes. It shows that the United States has not made coercive linkages between issues. In the early Cold War years, the exercise of American power over Canada was held in check by a genuinely special diplomatic culture but since then has been held back only by interest groups and institutions. This revisionist account of Canada- U.S. relations is essential reading for anyone interested in Canadian politics, American foreign policy, or international diplomacy.

Endorsements

"Among the many fresh and welcome aspects of the book is the focus on leadership and norms, and diplomatic tone, as key variables in our bilateral relations. Bow does an excellent job of challenging the big domain that the traditional concepts of structure, power, and interdependence have claimed for themselves in explaining Canada-U.S. relations. He does so sensibly, carefully fitting normative ideas without throwing out the big political, economic, and military dimensions of the relationship."—Alexander Moens, author of The Foreign Policy of George W. Bush: Values, Strategy, Loyalty
