This popular textbook offers a thorough and accessible approach to Canadian Studies through comparative analyses of Canada and the United States, their histories, geographies, political systems, economies, and cultures. Students and professors alike acknowledge it as an ideal tool for understanding the close relationship between the two countries, their shared experiences, and their differing views on a range of issues.

Fully revised and updated, the second edition of Canadian Studies in the New Millennium includes new chapters on Demography and Immigration Policy, the Environment, and Civil Society and Social Policy, all written by leading scholars and educators in the field. At a time in which there is a growing mutual dependence between the US and Canada for security, trade, and investment, Canadian Studies in the New Millennium will continue to be a valuable resource for students, educators, and practitioners on both sides of the border.

Mark Kasoff is an emeritus professor in the Department of Economics and former director of the Canadian Studies Centre at Bowling Green State University.

Patrick James is Dornsife Dean's Professor of International Relations in the School of International Studies at the University of Southern California.

“The new edition of Canadian Studies in the New Millennium does a very thorough job of exploring the topics chosen and provides an exceptional amount of depth. Its conceptual frameworks make it accessible for mid- and upper-year undergraduate students.”

Geoffrey Hale, Department of Political Science, University of Lethbridge

“Having used the first edition of Canadian Studies in the New Millennium in my teaching, I have seen that students enjoy and greatly benefit from it, and that their knowledge of Canada increases appreciably with every chapter. Its coverage is extensive and appropriate for American undergraduates. The second edition continues to read well, with three new chapters that add important information and analysis.”
