Description

Now in a new fourth edition, this concise volume covers the whole of Canadian history from pre-contact times to the present, integrating social, cultural, political, and economic history into a coherent and compelling narrative. New to the fourth edition is additional coverage of multiculturalism, immigration, and racism, as well as women and work in the twenty-first century. Many new historical images have been added throughout to support the already robust photo and image program, engaging the reader and drawing them into each time period discussed. Engrossing, thorough, and timely, J.M. Bumsted's narrative provides a comprehensive look at this country's fascinating history.
