The Spirit of Hyannis Port and the End of Camelot
The epilogue deals with Canada–US relations during the eight-month overlap between President Kennedy and Lester Pearson—a period that indicated that bilateral tension would continue, as would rising Canadian nationalism. Pearson and Kennedy rekindled a friendly relationship, yet it was one that could not mask wider underlying tensions. So, in the face of nationalist discontent, and in response to a variety of policy differences with their northern neighbors, the Kennedy administration and the Canadian specialists in the State Department displayed considerable forbearance, a reflection of the good feeling underscoring the special relationship between the two countries in the era of quiet diplomacy.
