J.M. Bumsted's bestselling survey of Canadian social, cultural, political, and economic history from 1867 to the present is now in its fourth edition. Retaining the hallmark features of previous editions, this edition incorporates new material on key topics such as modern culture; hockey; the environment and the Arctic; and international and domestic politics.
For over 25 years, John M. (Jack) Bumsted taught at the University of Manitoba's department of history. Before his arrival on the Prairies he taught at both Simon Fraser University and McMaster University. His research specialties are many, including the history of Prince Edward Island, Manitoba, and cultural history.
