Editorial Reviews

"In this collection, there is an obvious and admirable effort to go beyond a standard and traditional approach in order to delve into matters and human experiences which do not often appear in texts designed for Canadian surveys [...] These articles [allow] professors and students to investigate societies and people who have at times been marginalized and have not entered into the mainstream narrative of Canadian history in this period." --Stephen Kenny, University of Regina


From previous edition: "Many of us who teach history want to introduce our students as early as possible to two essential skills of the discipline: interpreting primary sources and identifying and analyzing historiographical arguments. . . [This] reader, which would engage students with current historiographical debates and encourage them to seek their own interpretations of sources from the past, promises to be a very effective aid in helping students develop these skills." --Willeen Keough, Simon Fraser University
