Justin Trudeau, in only his first few months in power, used his per- sonal celebrity to rebrand Canada as a more sympathetic country in an attempt to swing the pendulum back to something more familiar. How- ever, navigating Canada’s path forward in the world will take more than “sunny ways.” Chronicling Canada’s journey under these two prime ministers, Swingback examines the ways the country’s relationships with the United Nations, Israel, Iran, and Russia changed under Harper’s leadership, and how this has affected the situation the Liberals have inherited. From the war zones of Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya to meetings with world leaders, Mike Blanchfield traces Canada’s birth as a global actor since the end of the Second World War and delves into the trenches of domes- tic political battles and the challenges of the present day, drawing from extensive on-the- ground research as a practising journalist. An uncompromising analysis of Harper’s for- eign policy legacy and the emerging priorities of the Liberal government, Swingback rediscovers Canada’s place in this turbulent world. Mike Blanchfield is a journalist who has covered foreign policy for the Canadian Press and other major Canadian newspapers for two decades. He lives in Ottawa. 2 M Q U P S P R I N G 2 0 1 7 P O L I T I C A L S T U D I E S Swingback Getting Along in the World with Harper and Trudeau mike blanchfield How Stephen Harper changed Canadian foreign policy, and how Justin Trudeau is trying to turn it around.
