Contributor: Jessica LeCroy, Former Visiting Senior Fellow for Geoeconomics
Key Porter Books
Despite generations of talking, trading, intermarrying, and fighting together as allies--not to mention sharing a border--Canadians cherish ideas about the United States that may not be true, ideas that often lead to a distorted perception of American society. American Myths challenges this conventional wisdom with fifteen essays on topics including multiculturalism, health care, diplomacy, the environment, and America's role as the world's peacekeeper. Intelligent and thought-provoking, the book is required reading for anyone interested in future relations between the two nations.
Jessica LeCroy is a former visiting senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and the first State Department official to be detailed to the Center for Geoeconomic Studies. From 2004 to 2006 Ms. LeCroy was the U.S. consul general in Toronto, Ontario, and from 2001 to 2003 national security adviser to the secretary of the treasury. A career member of the Senior Foreign Service, Ms. LeCroy's overseas assignments have included Iraq, Georgia, Bosnia, the Netherlands, and Nicaragua. She retired from public service in 2008.
