Canadian Liberalism and the Politics of Border Control, 1867–1967

James Walsh of the University of Pennsylvania reviews Canadian Liberalism and the Politics of Border Control, 1867–1967. This book on the rights of non-citizens in Canada’s first century offers an alternative optic for assessing the “control/rights nexus.” Drawing on a wide array of primary and secondary sources, the author highlights oscillations between rights-based and rights-restrictive orientations. Its findings suggest two ideational camps — liberal nationalism and internationalism — have vied to influence immigration policy.
