Rebranding Canada as Warrior Nation?
The eh List Author Series
Join us as Jamie Swift speaks about his book Warrior Nation
Is Canada the 'Peaceable Kingdom' or a 'Warrior Nation'? Are we a moving
toward the 'Just Society' or do we favour 'authoritarian leadership'?
Jamie Swift argues that there's a concerted effort afoot to re-imagine Canada as a militarized nation. New warrior zealots are seeking to shift public opinion and transform postwar Canada's central myth from the 'nation of peacekeepers' story to the 'nation born in the crucible of war' narrative.
Warrior Nation has been shortlisted for a John W. Dafoe prize for Nonfiction.
Come out for a provocative discussion of the Canadian ethos and the future of our national mythology.
