Abstract

Les expressions politiques du Québec et du Canada donnent l’impression d’une quête identitaire perpétuelle. L’obsession du moi est passée du « je » au « nous ». Ce collectif pluridisciplinaire donne une portée philosophique et historique à la question du renouveau démocratique au Québec et au Canada. La tension entre les identités citoyennes et les identités des groupes exige l’émergence ou la renaissance d’un référent politique collectif et invite à la reformulation du credo identitaire, à la rénovation de l’héritage commun. Cet ouvrage examine la nature de ce mouvement de refondation et regarde comment le groupe est convié à participer à cet exercice de se nommer.

Abstract

In the early hours of April 22, 1914, American President Woodrow Wilson sent Marines to seize the port of Veracruz in an attempt to alter the course of the Mexican Revolution. As a result, the United States seemed on the brink of war with Mexico. An international uproar ensued. The governments of Argentina, Brazil, and Chile offered to mediate a peaceful resolution to the crisis. Surprisingly, both the United States and Mexico accepted their offer and all parties agreed to meet at an international peace conference in Niagara Falls, Ontario. For Canadians, the conference provided an unexpected spectacle on their doorstep, combining high diplomacy and low intrigue around the gardens and cataracts of Canada's most famous natural attraction. For the diplomats involved, it proved to be an ephemeral high point in the nascent pan-American movement. After it ended, the conference dropped out of historical memory. This is the first full account of the Niagara Falls Peace Conference to be published in North America since 1914. The author carefully reconstructs what happened at Niagara Falls, examining its historical significance for Canada's relationship with the Americas. From this almost forgotten event he draws important lessons on the conduct of international mediation and the perils of middle-power diplomacy.
