MEDIA REVIEWS
Within the borderlands that separate and join Canadians and Americans, the Canadian search for difference goes on. -- Jeffrey Simpson * The Globe and Mail *
What New has to say is important since he recasts the issues of national identity in a post-modernist fin de siecle ambiguity... New acknowledges new issues that have fundamentally challenged national boundaries, such as the multinational corporation, multiculturalism, and aboriginal identity. -- Anthony W. Rasporich * Western Historical Quarterly *
... it would be a shame if New's thoughtful and thought-provoking volume were overlooked because Borderlands is one of those rare books that work on many carefully layered levels: literary, poetic, philosophical and political. ... a rich tapestry. * Georgia Straight, October 15-22, 1998 *
