The fourth volume in the author's magisterial examination of Canada's external and defense policies since World War I focuses on NATO and related issues, especially the nature of the nuclear deterrent, from 1947 to 1955, and is based on extensive archival research. The central figure is Lester B. Pearson. One is struck by his ability to offer constructive criticism to the United States government without giving offense.
