Synopsis
What are the fundamental problems of Canadian national identity? How do religious and technological questions influence the political lives of ordinary Canadians? What significance will American law, American military power, and American society have for Canadian political existence? In the years ahead, will Canada even be regarded as a nation? Although Canada has had its fair share of political thinkers, the late George Grant is one of a very small number who deserve the title 'political philosopher'. He has been called a 'red tory' and a 'cultural pessimist', but he is perhaps best known as the father of modern Canadian nationalism. This book undertakes a timely re-examination of George Grant's political philosophy. With the assistance of Barry Cooper, professor of Political Science at the University of Calgary, Yusuf Umar has brought together these important essays by Canadian philosophers, political scientists, and legal and theological scholars.
