SOCIAL SCIENCE / Emigration & Immigration
  • Short Description
A handbook for Americans who refused to serve as draftees in the Vietnam War and were considering immigrating to Canada, with new modern relevance.

In print for the first time since 1971, Manual for Draft-Age Immigrants to Canada has once again become relevant in a time of major political upheaval in the United States of America.

First published in 1968 by House of Anansi Press, the Manual for Draft-Age Immigrants to Canada was a handbook for Americans who refused to serve as draftees in the Vietnam War and were considering immigrating to Canada. Conceived as a practical guide with information on the process, the Manual also features information on aspects of Canadian society, touching on topics like history, politics, culture, geography and climate, jobs, housing, and universities.

The Manual went through several editions from 1968–71. Today, as Americans are taking up the discussion of immigration to Canada once again, it is an invaluable record of a moment in our recent history.

MARK SATIN is an American political theorist, author, and newsletter publisher. After emigrating to Canada in 1967, at the age of twenty, Satin co-founded the Toronto Anti-Draft Programme, which helped bring American Vietnam War resisters to Canada. He wrote the Manual for Draft-Age Immigrants to Canada in 1968, which had an estimated print run of 100,000 copies. Satin is also the author of New Age Politics: Healing Self and Society, and the political newsletters New Options and Radical Middle. His most recent book is New Age Politics: Our Only Real Alternative (40th Anniversary Edition).

It’s in the new afterword by Mark Satin, the Manual’s creator, where we can taste the grit, guts, and adrenalin fuelling the sixties anti-war movement. . . . why read the Manual today? Simply put, for its compelling documentary value as an artifact of a dangerous time - Globe and Mail
