Description

J.M. Bumsted surveys the vast sweep of Canada's post-Confederation past in this lively and engaging text. Integrating social, cultural, political, and economic history within a coherent overarching narrative, this volume (the second of a two-part set) begins with the immediate aftermath ofConfederation and takes the story of Canada through to the present day.Extensively revised and updated to include both the most recent scholarship and fresh approaches, this edition offers many new features, beginning with an essay specifically designed to introduce students to history as a discipline. Each of the book's five parts is introduced by a clear overview ofthe chapters to come, and three of them conclude with essays on the writing of history in a particular area (agriculture and rural society, Canada's involvement in war, and ethnicity and immigration). Each chapter includes a timeline of major themes and events, an annotated bibliography, and a setof study questions. Throughout, brief biographies of individual historical figures help to bring historical events alive, while excerpts from key primary-source documents give students a chance to deal with the raw material of history, and dozens of carefully chosen illustrations and maps illuminatekey concepts and topics. from Confederation to the present.
