Description


An investigation into the history and impact of Canada’s military-industrial complex.

During the Cold War, Canada’s military, industrial, and political partnerships developed behind the scenes and without much public scrutiny. Silent Partners explores Canada’s history of leveraging military and defense expenditures to fund domestic industries, bolster employment, and support science and technology. Military and defense spending have affected Canada in myriad ways, from demography and geography to political economy and international relationships, in uneven patterns of prosperity and decline. The contributions in this volume explore the environmental impact of military activities and munitions production, the ethical issues of human experimentation and military testing, and the economic and political implications of procurement and arms exports. Silent Partners is an illuminating examination of Canada’s military-industrial complex from a historical perspective.
