Canada is all too often considered a mere extension of the United States, and it is no accident that the Canadian-U.S. border is perhaps the most stable and peaceful on earth. Most Americans know little about our quiet neighbour's unique history-from its first sighting by the Norse to its full confederation in 1867 to today's social democracy. Now, including more material than ever with a brand-new look, A Brief History of Canada, Second Edition fills this gap with authoritative chapters that combine solid reference value with helpful analysis.
Beginning with the exploration of the Northern American frontier and continuing through the rise and fall of the French and British empires to the foundations of Canadian nationhood and the present day, this book provides unparalleled details in a single-volume reference. All material in this edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded to reflect the most recent political developments in this country, including 20 new photographs and a new section titled "National Ambivalence in the New Millennium," which covers significant national and provincial political developments since 1999.
