The first of two projected volumes deals with Canada's role in the planning and birth of the United Nations and ancillary international organizations. It is written with grace, wit and perception by a distinguished Canadian diplomat-scholar. The subject is important for its own sake and also for its comparative perspective on the ideas and policies of Americans. A major contribution to the growing literature of Canadian diplomatic history.
