Noted Afghan specialist Dr. Larry P. Goodson, General Dwight D. Eisenhower Chair of National Security, U.S. Army War College, offers an assessment of Afghanistan's future in light of its underlying cultural, economic, ethnic and political characteristics; progress (and/or the lack thereof) on the major pillars of nation-building undertaken in that country since Sept. 11, 2001; and the regional geopolitical pressures on Afghanistan. He devotes special attention to Canada's role in Afghanistan and the more general and vexing problem of management of the international community effort there (especially the US-NATO relationship).

The first full-scale biography in half a century of Canada's first prime minister, by one of our best-known and most highly regarded political writers. This first volume follows John A. Macdonald's life from his birth in Scotland to his emigration to Kingston, Ontario, the birth of his political ambitions, his commitment to the all but impossible challenge of achieving Confederation and, finally, to his presiding over the new Dominion's first Canada Day in 1867. Colourful and intensely human, Macdonald is Canada's most important prime minister. In pages brimming with anecdote, insight, detail and originality, Gwyn has created an indelible portrait of "the irreplaceable man."
