Book Summary:

Volume three of the official history of Canada’s Department of External Affairs offers readers an unparalleled look at the evolving structures underpinning Canadian foreign policy from 1968 to 1984. Using untapped archival sources and extensive interviews with top-level officials and ministers, the volume presents a frank “insider’s view” of work in the Department, its key personalities, and its role in making Canada’s foreign policy. In doing so, the volume presents novel perspectives on Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and the country’s responses to the era’s most important international challenges. These include the October Crisis of 1970, recognition of Communist China, UN peacekeeping, decolonization and the North-South dialogue, the Middle East and the Iran Hostage crisis, and the ever-dangerous Cold War.

Book Summary:

After years spent as a struggling translator and poet, Paul Auster published his first works of fiction in the mid 1980s - City of Glass, Ghosts and The Locked Room, three brilliant variations on the classic detective story which, published together as The New York Trilogy, became the international hit that established his reputation. Introducing themes that have run throughout his work ever since, Auster managed to combine formal experimentation with classic storytelling, and to inform his exploration of America and the self with a distinctly European sensibility. Included here in the first volume of his collected novels, alongside his seminal debut are In the Country of Last Things, a dark, dystopian vision of the future, and Moon Palace, a sweeping multi-generation novel that begins 'in the summer that man first walked on the moon'. All told in his characteristic clean prose style, these three novels form the first chapter in an ongoing career that has marked Auster out as one of the most original, relevant and enduring novelists at work today.
