From the Publisher:

Colony to nation? Isolationism to internationalism? WASP society to
a multicultural Canada? Focusing on imperial conflicts in the
Pacific, Orienting Canada disrupts these familiar narratives
in Canadian history by tracing the relationship between racism and
Canadian foreign policy.



Grounded in transnationalism and anti-racist theory, this book
reassesses critical transpacific incidents, including Vancouver's
riots of 1907, the Chinese head tax, the wars in the pacific from 1937
to 1945, the internment of Japanese-Canadians, and Canada's
significant role in consolidating the US anti-communist empire in
postwar Asia. Shocking revelations about the effects of racism
and war into the 1960s are tempered by stories of community resilience
and transformation. As a transpacific lens on the past, Orienting
Canada
deflects Canada's European gaze back onto itself to
reveal images that both provoke and unsettle.
