Creating Canada’s Peacekeeping Past illuminates how Canada’s participation in the United Nations’ peacekeeping efforts from 1956 to 1997 was used as a symbol of national identity – in Quebec and the rest of the country. Delving into four decades’ worth of documentaries, newspaper coverage, textbooks, political rhetoric, and more, Colin McCullough outlines continuity and change in the production and reception of messages about peacekeeping. Engaging in debates about Canada’s international standing, as well as its broader national character, this book is welcome addition to the history of Canada’s changing national identity.
