Synopsis

Synopsis

A passionate argument for Canada's reassertion of its place on the world stage, from a former prime minister and one of Canada's most respected political figures.
 
In the world that is taking shape, the unique combination of Canada's success at home as a diverse society and its reputation internationally as a sympathetic and respected partner consititute national assets that are at least as valuable as its natural resource wealth. As the world becomes more competitive and complex, and the chances of deadly conflict grow, the example and the initiative of Canada can become more important than they have ever been. That depends on its people: assets have no value if Canadians don't recognize or use them, or worse, if they waste them.
 
A more effective Canada is not only a benefit to itself, but to its friends and neighbours. And in this compelling examination of what it as a nation has been, what it has become and what it can yet be to the world, Joe Clark takes the reader beyond formal foreign policy and looks at the contributions and leadership offered by Canada's most successful individuals and organizations who are already putting these uniquely Canadian assets to work internationally.

FINALIST 2014 – Ottawa Book Awards—Non-Fiction

“Joe Clark’s How We Lead is like the honourable man: thoughtful, intelligent…worth the effort…. Who would have thought that Joe Clark could turn out to be Canada’s Cassandra?”
Toronto Star
 
“Joe Clark brings a wealth of experience to his observations on the Canadian political scene…. A thoughtful book, one that will interest anyone who cares about Canada’s place in the world.”
The Record (Kitchener-Waterloo)

“An outstanding read. From the perspective of today’s viciously divided politics, Mr. Clark’s portrayal of the country’s history is balanced and laudable. His assessment of the state of Canadian politics is a sobering wake-up call…. Better than any book I have read in a long time, How We Lead depicts my concerns about the direction in which we Canadians are drifting.”
 —Andre Carrel, The Boundary Sentinel
 
“All Canadians should read this book.”
Calgary Herald 

"An impassioned argument for Canada to reassert its international position as an agent of change, diplomacy and peace."
—Ottawa Life
