Overview

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.
