Editorial Reviews

"I think the balance of various schools of history, from political, social, cultural, economic, gender, ethnic, and intellectual strains of history, is quite an achievement, as it would satisfy most historians as to the breadth of historiography found in the text." --Darren Ferry, Nipissing University


"This is the best textbook I've used. . . . The book is very accessible and well organized, and the narrative flows nicely." --Ross McCormack, University of Winnipeg
