Editors Note Colony to nation? Isolationism to internationalism? WASP society toa multicultural Canada? Focusing on imperial conflicts in thePacific, Orienting Canada disrupts these familiar narrativesin Canadian history by tracing the relationship between racism andCanadian foreign policy.Grounded in transnationalism and anti-racist theory, this bookreassesses critical transpacific incidents, including Vancouver'sriots of 1907, the Chinese head tax, the wars in the pacific from 1937to 1945, the internment of Japanese-Canadians, and Canada'ssignificant role in consolidating the US anti-communist empire inpostwar Asia. Shocking revelations about the effects of racismand war into the 1960s are tempered by stories of community resilienceand transformation. As a transpacific lens on the past, OrientingCanada deflects Canada's European gaze back onto itself toreveal images that both provoke and unsettle.
