Philip Buckner (Professor Emeritus, University of New Brunswick) - During the past few decades there has been a large volume of studies dealing with Anglo-American relations in the first half of the nineteenth century and a much smaller number of studies focusing on American-Canadian relations. Unfortunately these two historiographies rarely speak to each other. In this paper Prof Buckner attempts to summarize the themes that characterize the literature on Anglo-American relations and to show the implications that this literature has for our understanding of American-Canadian relations during the period from the War of 1812 to the Treaty of Washington in 1871.
