Summary/Review: "Canada and the Third World provides a much needed and long overdue introduction to Canada's historical relationship with the Third World. The book critically explores this relationship by asking four central questions: how can we understand the historical roots of Canada's relations with the countries of the Third World? How have Canadians, individuals and institutions alike, practiced and imagined "development"? How can we integrate Canada into global histories of empire, decolonization, and development? And how should we understand the relationship between issues such as poverty, racism, gender equality, and community development in the First and Third World alike? The anthology begins with a general introduction followed by 9 essays. Each essay ends with discussions questions and suggestions for further reading."--
