Although fifty years have passed since Lester Pearson stepped down as prime minister, he still influences debates about Canada's role in the world. Mike's World explores the myths surrounding Pearsonianism to explain why he remains such a touchstone for understanding Canadian foreign policy. Leading scholars dig deeply into his diplomatic and political career, especially during the 1960s and his tenure as prime minister. Situating Pearson within his times and using him as a lens through which to analyze Canadians' views of global affairs, this nuanced collection wrestles with the contradictions of Pearson and Pearsonianism and, ultimately, with the resulting myths surrounding Canada's role in the world.
