The article presents information on certain recently published books on international relations that particularly emphasizes on the Western Hemisphere. "In Defence of Canada: From the Great War to the Great Depression," by James Earys, is an extremely well-documented study measuring the role of the Canadian Army, Navy and Air Force in the 1920s and early 1930s. The reference book titled, "Economic Geography of Canada," by Pierre Camu, contains a wealth of information and data on Canada's natural and historical setting, on economic geography in general, and on the 68 individual regions into which the authors have divided the country. "American Extremes," by Daniel Cosío Villegas examines some of Latin America's internal and external problems. In the author's view, while the United States has increased its political and economic hegemony in the Western hemisphere, it has also become the most persuasive exponent of the worst faults of Western civilization and the weakest exponent of its best achievements.
