“Canadians believe that their history is short, boring and irrelevant. They are wrong on all counts.” – Desmond Morton, from the Introduction

Most of us know bits and pieces of our history but would like to be more sure of how it all fits together. The trick is to find a history that is so absorbing you will want to read it from beginning to end. With this completely revised and expanded edition of A Short History of Canada, Desmond Morton, one of Canada’s most noted and highly respected historians, shows how the choices we can make at the dawn of the 21st century have been shaped by history.

Morton is keenly aware of the links connecting our present, our past, and our future, and in one compact and engrossing volume he pulls off the remarkable feat of bringing it all together – from the First Nations before the arrival of the Europeans to the failure of the Charlottetown accord and Jean Chretien’s third term as prime minister. His acute observations on the Diefenbaker era, the effects of the post-war influx of immigrants, the flag debate, the baby boom, the Trudeau years and the constitutional crisis, the Quebec referendum, and the rise of the Canadian Alliance all provide an invaluable background to understanding the way Canada works today.

From the Back Cover:

“To write a popular history of Canada which is both entertaining and informative is not an easy task. Desmond Morton is to be congratulated for doing precisely this.”
Canadian Historical Review

“A joy to read, succinct, sensible, and well balanced in its viewpoint as well as in its coverage.”
Quill & Quire
