In Reflections of a Siamese Twin, Saul turns his eye from a reinterpretation of the Western world to an examination of Canada itself. Caught up in crisespolitical, economic, and socialCanada continues to flounder, unable to solve or even really identify its problems.

Instead, we assert absolute differences between ourselves: we are English or we are French; Natives or Europeans; early immigrants or newly arrived; from the east or from the west. Or we bow to ideologies and deny all differences in the name of nationalism, unity, or equality. In a startling exercise in reorientation, John Ralston Saul makes sense of Canadian mythsreal, false, deniedand reconciles them with the reality of today's politics, culture, and economics.
