The second largest nation on earth, Canada, with its overarching geography of over one million bodies of water, endless prairies, frozen reaches of the north, and awe-inspiring mountain ranges, holds many stunning lands. Though often portrayed by the American media as a pale reflection of the United States, Canada, as displayed here, has a truly complex and intricate image. The political struggles of the past and present and the clash over issues of ethnicity, race, religion, language, and culture are just some of the details that mark this country's unmatched uniqueness. From the earliest contact between Amerindians and Europeans to the early 21st century, this history draws the reader into the drama that is Canada.
This Second Edition includes a new chapter that covers the first decade of the twenty-first century as well as revisions to the material from the 2001 edition that was published by Greenwood Press as part of its Histories of the Modern Nations series. The section on the Notable People in the History of Canada has been expanded, a number of maps and photographs have been added, and the Timeline of Historical Events has been brought up to date. This edition also includes a new section of Primary Documents. These were selected to enhance the text and give the reader insight to the kinds of evidentiary material that historians use to construct the complex portrait of a nation.
