La description:

Canada's ties with the Third World are all around us: every time Canadians use their cell phones, savour tropical fruits, plan their winter vacations, or consider donating money to an international charity, they are participating in foreign relations. Even though they are generally aware of the Third World in relation to their daily lives, most Canadians know little about the historical foundations and complex nature of the country's entanglements with non-Western societies. Canada and the Third World provides a long overdue introduction to Canada's historical relationship with the Third World. The book asks critical questions about how we can integrate Canada into global histories of empire, decolonization, and development and how we should understand the relationship between issues such as poverty, racism, gender equality, and community development in the First and Third World alike.
