In his newest book, The Best Country, acclaimed writer and journalist Satya Das makes a compelling case for Canadian global leadership - not from any sense of military superiority or economic might, but from the simple duty to share what is best in us with the larger human family.

"Brims with the optimism that Canada can, indeed, make a difference in a world that seems to have lost its way." Prof. Andy Knight, Editor, Global Governance

"Satya Das’s new book deserves a wide audience across Canada - and beyond."
David Kilgour, M.P., Edmonton Southeast
