First published in 1991, The Unmaking of Canada offers a concise overview of the main currents of Canadian political economy in the period since 1945.
The focus is on providing background to the key issues facing English Canada in the last decade of the twentieth century: relations between Quebec and the rest of Canada; relations between Canada and the U.S.; regional tensions within English Canada; relations between Native peoples and the Canadian state; and Canada's economic development problems.
The authors make wide use of the literature on the Canadian economy and recent political history, and address current Canadian political issues in a straightforward and informative manner.
