OpenCanada presents its list of some of the best international affairs books by Canadian authors this year.
Canadians certainly made a mark on the international circuit this year. It wasn’t just Mark Carney, Peter Kent, John Baird and Prime Minister Harper driving the international conversation. So too were Canadian authors, whose books on international affairs influenced global discussions about aid, Islam, India, global cities, digital diplomacy, Afghanistan – and even Mount Everest.
The Mark is pleased to feature OpenCanada‘s list of some of the best international affairs books by Canadians this year (in no particular order). In addition, they ask each author to name what they think to be the biggest international event of 2011, the biggest international influencer of 2011, and Canada’s best and worst moments this year. Some say Kyoto was Canada’s best moment, others its worst. In addition, OpenCanada asks each author six telling questions:
1. What is the best international affairs book you have read in 2011 (Canadian or otherwise?)
2. What was the biggest international event of 2011?
3. Who was the biggest international influencer of 2011?
4. Who was the biggest Canadian international influencer of 2011?
5. What was Canada’s best international moment of 2011?
6. What was Canada’s worst international moment of 2011?
Some say Kyoto was Canada’s best moment, others its worst. To see the list, and where Canada’s international literary crew agree and disagree, click here or on the image below.
