A Samaritan State Revisited brings together a refreshing group of emerging and leading scholars to reflect on the history of Canada’s overseas development aid.

Addressing the broad ideological and institutional origins of Canada’s official development assistance in the 1950s and specific themes in its evolution and professionalization after 1960, this collection is the first to explore Canada’s history with foreign aid with this level of interrogative detail.

Extending from the 1950s to the present and covering Canadian aid to all regions of the Global South, from South and Southeast Asia to Latin America and Africa, these essays embrace a variety of approaches and methodologies ranging from traditional, archival-based research to textual and image analysis, oral history, and administrative studies. A Samaritan State Revisited weaves together a unique synthesis of governmental and non-governmental perspectives, providing a clear and readily accessible explanation of the forces that have shaped Canadian foreign aid policy.

Greg Donaghy is head of the Historical Section, Global Affairs Canada. He is co-Editor of From Kinshasa to Kandahar: Canada and Fragile States in Historical Perspective.

David Webster is an associate professor of History at Bishop’s University. He is author of Flowers in the Wall: Truth and Reconciliation in Timor-Leste, Indonesia, and Melanesia.

Canada?s international assistance has constituted a significant, yet underappreciated, facet of Canada?s role and impact on the world stage. This book provides an illuminating account of how the aid relationship was initiated and evolved over the past seven decades, in Asia, Latin America and Africa. It is a welcome, and overdue, contribution to the historiography of Canada?s foreign relations.

—Roy Culpeper, Senior Fellow, School of International Development and Global Studies, University of Ottawa
