    I ended up skimming through this - intros and conclusions, mainly - but I thought it was worth a mention. Really interesting, to me at least, to think about the history of both the US and Canada and the reasons why our societies are sometimes similar but so often different. I can't help thinking, though, (and this is probably in part due to my own studies) that it is a little silly to trace things like this all the way back to 1783. And the author keeps doing that.

I mean I know, I know, the loyalists vs. the patriots, the Tories vs. the Whigs, blah blah, but there has been so much history over the last two centuries contributing to the two societies. And so much immigration! And people moving over the border in both directions. It's hard for me to believe that you can trace the difference between Canadians and Americans to some fundamental rupture from the late 18th century. I also think that this book is a bit out of date. 25 years doesn't seem that old, but as the book progressed I kept thinking about how all the surveys they used to gauge public sentiment were from the 70s and 80s. That was kind of a long time ago, when you think about it. Cold War still on and everything. I'd like to read a study from the last few years, if one exists.
