Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
This second edition opens up an engaging and much-needed overview of our society, at a level appropriate for a wide range of courses in Canadian Studies, Sociology, and History. This original work examines the growth and development of Canadian society within a socio-historical framework. The authors investigate historical, economic, political, cultural, and ideological perspectives through three key relationships: Quebec and Canada, Canada and the United States, and Canada and the Aboriginal Nations. The book: Examines society as a set of relationships that emerge gradually over time as fostered, encouraged, and mediated by a set of institutions, in particular, the state and markets; Explores society as the product of an historical narrative -- a movie, rather than a snapshot - which enlists many literary devices, including myths, metaphors, symbols, heroes, villains, and tragic figures; Identifies the complex relationship between individuals and society. Students are asked to consider to what extent individuals create society, and conversely, to what extent society creates individuals.

Review:
Appropriate for Canadian Society and Canadian Studies courses. This text examines the growth and development of Canadian society within a socio-historical framework. Following the progress of our society into the 21st century, Harrison investigates historical, economic, political, cultural and ideological perspectives through 3 key relationships: Quebec and Canada, Canada and the United States, and Canada and the Aboriginal Nations. An introductory chapter presents central sociological theories of structural-functionalism, symbolic interactionism, conflict and feminism as it pertains to the text's central themes of nation, state and society.
