Ask a great question, spark a great debate.Does history matter? Is Canada a nation of too many identities? Where have all the heroes gone? Is there life after unity?The answers to these and other key questions are as varied and provocative as the writers who penned them: social commentators Neil Bissoondath, Barry Cooper, Charlotte Gray, Michael Ignatieff, Naomi Klein, and Peter C. Newman; policy makers Allan Gotlieb, Ovide Mercredi, and Bob Rae; scholars Jack Granatstein, Guy Laforest, and Janice Gross Stein.In this new edition, columnists George Jonas and Haroon Siddiqui debate the future of a multicultural society in a post-9/11 world, while political adviser Tom Flanigan and aboriginal rights lawyer (and great-grandniece of Louis Riel) Jean Teillet discuss the controversial issue of Native land claims.Intelligent and thought-provoking, these passionately argued essays prove that even within the most heated of debates, a national dialogue may emergeone formed by an underlying spirit of shared values and common experience.
