Join co-editor David Webster and contributors Kevin Brushett and Jill Campbell-Miller for a sneak peek into the forthcoming book, A Samaritan State Revisited. Addressing the broad ideological and institutional origins of Canada’s official development assistance in the 1950s and specific themes in its evolution and professionalization since the 1960s, this collection is the first to explore Canada’s history with foreign aid with interrogative detail. From the 1950s to the present, from the Global South to Southeast Asia, Latin America, and Africa, A Samaritan State Revisited weaves together a unique synthesis of governmental and non-governmental perspectives, providing a clear and readily accessible explanation of the forces that have shaped Canadian foreign aid policy. 

A Samaritan State Revisited: Historical Perspectives on Canadian Foreign Aid, edited by Greg Donaghy and David Webster, is forthcoming in August 2019 from the University of Calgary Press.
