Editorial Reviews

"There have been some excellent additions made to this collection, particularly the chapters on the Great Depression, discrimination during the Second World War, and residential schools." --Barry R. MacKenzie, PhD, St. Francis Xavier University


"Interpreting Canada's Past: A Post-Confederation Reader is a historical reflection of contemporary issues in Canada today. Its primary aim is to address historical events through the lenses of politics, race, and constructions of power and authority." --Rebecca Beausaert, University of Guelph
