Editorial Reviews

Review

"Who We Are's diagnosis of the postnational predicament is compelling, refreshing and highly relevant...While Who We Are doesn't present all the answers, it does us an enormous service by opening up the debate. Taking on myths might seem very un-Canadian, but in writing this book, Griffiths distinguishes himself as one of the very best Canadians of his generation." (Globe & Mail 2009-03-14)

"[Griffiths] book melds logical clarity with truly excellent prose." (Inside Queen's Park 2009-03-24)

"Who We Are: A Citizen's Manifesto isn't only about who we are but also about who, in Griffiths opinion, we ought to be." (National Post 2009-04-01)

"In this provocative work, Griffiths argues that at this critical juncture Canadians need to rediscover our country's founding principles -- robust civic values and social solidarity -- so that we can create a movement of passionate citizenship, one which will keep us accountable not just to our neighbourhoods and cities, but to our country." (Argyle Magazine 2009-04-07)

"Who We Are is a bold and sometimes provocative book: while rejecting crude nationalism, Griffiths insists that multicultural Canada in a complicated, often volatile world is best served by a more robust idea of citizenship and a stronger allegiance to its traditions and institutions...it is...the starting point of a conversation that we can only ignore at our peril." (The Walrus 2009-04-16)

"In his new book Who We Are...Rudyard Griffiths challenges Canadians to rediscover the founding principals of Canadian nationhood and revitalize our sense of citizenship." (Financial Post 2009-05-09)

"An eloquent and hard-headed argument for reinventing a shared vision of what it means to be Canadian." (Margaret Wente)

"A genuine cri de coeur...for a new and better Canada written by one of the brightest stars of the rising generation." (J.L. Granatstein)

"A must-read for every Canadian concerned about where we are headed as a nation." (Rick Mercer)
