    Abstract: The years from 1919 to 1935 were not years in which defence was of pressing importance to the majority of Canadian politicians, yet this does not mean that the history of Ottawa's defence policies in this period of 'the fire-proof house' is dull or trivial. Professor Eayrs has had access to most of the documents, files, and diaries of these years, and from them has evolved a fascinating and well-written account of the attitudes and thoughts - and personalities - dominant at this time. Included in this survey are the story of the expedition to Siberia, the first account of the birth of the Royal Canadian Air Force, the defensive campaign waged by Walter Hose for the survival of the Canadian Navy, the founding of General McNaughton's 'Royal Twenty-Centers,' and many other aspects of the military history of Canada in those years. Seen from the present day some episodes have, it must be admitted, a wry folly to them. The central thesis or moral that emerges from the work is that military and diplomatic considerations ought to be indissolubly combined in study and analysis as well as in formulation and execution

    Abstract: This study, admirable in the logic of its organization and in the freshness of its style, provides an absorbing account of historical developments and current practices in the making of Canada's foreign policy. It analyses carefully and vividly the way in which the prime minister and members of his cabinet, members of the civil service, Parliament, and the military establishment have come together in peace and war to discover "the possible" for Canada's relations with other countries

    Abstract: The Plaunt Lectures for 1965 deal with the perennial problem of moral man in immoral society, the society in question being the international states-system. An examination of the working of that system discloses that the scope for wrong-doing by the makers of foreign policy has, since 1945, enlarged rather than contracted. Deceit, treachery, and cruelty are held to be the characteristic manifestations of modern statecraft, rather than exceptional or aberrational. An attempt is made to discover why this should be so. The traditional attitudes towards the discrepancy between private ethics and the ethics of statecraft is assessed, and found wanting; a new attitude is outlined, and recommended. Finally, the Lectures seeks fresh answers to Machiavelli's classic inquiry into the ways in which statesman should keep faith; the inquiry is broadened to include not statesmen only, but public servants - diplomatic and military - the public at large, and intellectuals (in whom a special responsibility is discerned). The range of applications of these lectures is immense: argued closely, and yet from a broad intellectual base, they pertain directly to all who exercise and influence public authority

    Abstract: The first two volumes of this outstanding history of Canada's defence and foreign policy have drawn unanimous acclaim from scholars and critics alike. Richard Preston said of the first volume that is 'opens up a new chapter in Canadian historiography' and of the second that is 'amply lives up to the promise of the earlier epoch-making book.' Kenneth McNaught stated: 'There could not be more important reading for anyone trying to apprehend the tenacious traditions underlying our present position in world affairs.' The third volume has been described in Political Science Quarterly as 'a first class book - learned in content, lucid and witty in style.'

    Abstract: James Eayrs is a keen and articulate observer of international politics. His incisive critiques of the moral turpitude and inefficiency of the diplomatic profession in Right and Wrong in Foreign Policy and Fate and Will in Foreign Policy provoked unflattering attention and attempts at rebuttal by the statesmen and politicians who shape our foreign policy. This volume makes these two controversial studies available once more, bringing them up to date with discussions of the 'October crisis' in Quebec and other recent events, and incorporating the author's selection of his recent writings on the irrelevance, or deliquescence, of modern diplomacy. All three parts of the book hold to a single theme - the decay of diplomatic method. In the incisive prose characteristic of all Eayrs' writing, these discourses present a convincing view of the tragi-comedy of foreign affairs. The general reader and the student of politics and international affairs will find this a perceptive analysis of statecraft, full of insights into the workings of government

    Abstract: In Defence of Canada: Appeasement and Rearmament is a companion and sequel to Eayrs' In Defence of Canada: From the Great War to the Great Depression (Toronto 1964). Like Volume I, Volume II rejects as outmoded and misleading the traditional division of national security policy into two compartments, one called foreign policy, the other, defence policy. Like Volume I, Volume II is meant to demonstrate that the military and diplomatic components of national security policy are, and ought to be, indissolubly combined, in study and analysis, as well as in formulation and execution. The emphasis in Volume II is mainly on the diplomatic: the tempo and importance of Canadian diplomacy steadily increase during the period with which it is concerned. That period opens with the Italian war aggression against Ethiopia in 1935. It closes in the late summer and early fall of 1940, as the twilight war becomes a total war
