About this item
The main objective of this overview is to demonstrate that although Canadian history has been marked by cleavages and conflicts, there has been a continual process of negotiation and a need for compromise which has enabled Canada to develop into arguably one of the most successful and pluralistic countries in the world.
Driven by its strong narrative, the book presents Canadian history chronologically, allowing students to better understand the inter-relationships between events. The authors have drawn from all genres characterizing the present state of Canadian historiography, including political, social, military, cultural, and economic approaches. Their aim is to challenge students to engage with debates and interpretations about the past. The book is well illustrated and designed to promote intellectual curiosity.
