Roy Rempel argues that the past decade has been marked by an ideological and domestically driven foreign policy agenda that has lost sight of the national interest. As a consequence, Canada's policy options are narrowing, national sovereignty is eroding, and the country risks evolving into a protectorate of the United States. Dreamland analyzes how Canada's foreign policy has subverted the myths that Canadians believe about themselves and their place in the world. Rempel champions the development of a non-ideological foreign policy that puts the security and prosperity of Canadians first. He shows that a true partnership with the United States can lead to a pivotal bilateral relationship that would be to Canada's international advantage. Dreamland makes it clear that a renewal of Canada's foreign policy can occur only if the conditions for a serious strategic culture are established with national institutions capable of setting clear policy priorities and objectives based on the country's national interests.

"Myths die hard. None harder than the notion of Canada as a peaceable kingdom fostering a kindly, if benign foreign policy. Roy Rempel's important book reveals the false character of both these impractical falsehoods. Dreamland makes for essential and urgent reading." Peter C. Newman "Superbly researched, powerfully argued - a detailed and practical guide to a foreign policy of which Canadians could be proud." David Frum, Resident Fellow, American Enterprise Institute "Roy Rempel expresses truth to many myths that have hobbled much of Canada's role and influence on global affairs recently. His analysis is as refreshing as it is compelling." Derek H. Burney, Visiting Professor, Senior Distinguished Fellow, Carleton University, former Canadian Ambassador to the United States "...the debate that the ideas and analysis in this book will generate is profoundly healthy for the body politic and Canada's right choices ahead to best protect and advance our geopolitical interests..." Hon. Hugh Segal, C.M., Senate of Canada
