James Fergusson has followed ballistic missile defense and Canadian defense policy for decades, and his passion is reflected in this, the first history that treats these topics in a single volume. Fergusson lives and breathes this topic and, in this book, he demonstrates an unsurpassed personal experience and knowledge of all the relevant government documents and academic literature, from Canada, the US, and elsewhere. He is ‘Mr. BMD’ in Canada, and few can approach his expertise.

Politics and Social Sciences James G. Fergusson, Canada and Ballistic Missile . Fergusson, Canada and Ballistic Missile Defence . Rather, Fergusson delves into Canada-US relations, Canadian defence policymaking and issues surrounding missiles defence in its broadest strategic and international sense. Much of the book is not new. Readers of other works on defence policymaking in Ottawa or of Canada's participation in NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defence Command, will not be surprised by the bureaucratic infighting between Canada's defence department and its foreign ministry.

The military history of Canada comprises hundreds of years of armed actions in the territory encompassing modern Canada, and interventions by the Canadian military in conflicts and peacekeeping worldwide

The military history of Canada comprises hundreds of years of armed actions in the territory encompassing modern Canada, and interventions by the Canadian military in conflicts and peacekeeping worldwide. For thousands of years, the area that would become Canada was the site of sporadic intertribal conflicts among Aboriginal peoples.

Since the mid-1950s, successive Canadian governments have grappled with the issue of Canada’s participation in US ballistic missile defence programs. Until Paul Martin’s Liberal government finally said no, policy-makers responded to US initiatives with fear and uncertainty as they endlessly debated the implications - at home and abroad - of participation. However, whether this is the end of the story remains to be seen.Drawing on previously classified government documents and interviews with senior officials, James Fergusson assesses Canada’s policy deliberations and rationales for avoiding a definitive commitment in response to five major US initiatives. He reveals that a combination of factors resulted in indecision: weak leadership, wrangling between the Departments of External Affairs and National Defence, a belief that the United States would defend Canada without much Canadian participation, and a tendency to place uncertain and ill-defined notions of international security before national defence. Successive Canadian governments have failed to transform the debate over ballistic missile defence into an opportunity to define Canada’s strategic interests at home and on the world stage.Balanced and engaging, Canada and Ballistic Missile Defense offers the first full account of Canada’s uncertain response to US ballistic missile defence initiatives and an exploration of the implications of this indecision. It is essential reading for policy-makers, students, and scholars of Canadian foreign and defence policy as well as anyone who wants a fuller understanding of Canadian-American relations.Published in association with the Canadian War Museum.
