Summary
"Escott Reid: Diplomat and Scholar offers a fresh perspective on the life and career of one of the most important public intellectuals and diplomats in twentieth-century Canada. The authors challenge critics who dismiss Reid as an impractical idealist, demonstrating that his approach to policy-making was sophisticated and his progressive idealism tempered by an astute grasp of the competing interests of a range of national and bureaucratic powers. Reid's reflections on Canada's place in the world remain as relevant and provocative as when he wrote them."--Jacket
