Interpreting Canada's Past: A Pre-Confederation Reader is the first of two volumes of primary and secondary documents designed to accompany J.M. Bumsted's two-volume text The Peoples of Canada or his single volume text A History of the Canadian Peoples. Each Chapter begins with an introduction that provides the necessary context for the documents that follow, and includes an extensive list of questions for consideration and related readings.
This new edition is substantially revised and includes over 35 new primary and secondary documents. In contrast to the previous edition, the fourth edition provides two in-depth historical interpretations per section rather than a collection of smaller items. This edition also features a great expansion of the visuals provided, including 24 photos, 7 maps, and an entire chapter devoted to visual history.

About the Author:


J.M. Bumsted has been a professor of history at St John's College, University of Manitoba, since 1980. Among his many books are The People's Clearance: Scottish Emigration to British North America 1770-1815 (1982); and Land Settlement and Politics in 18th Century PEI (1987); Len Kuffert is associate professor of history at the University of Manitoba. His current work is on radio in English Canada. His first book, A Great Duty: Canadian Responses to Modern Life and Mass Culture, 1939-1967, was published in 2003; Michel Ducharme is assistant professor of history at the University of British Columbia. His current research is focused on British North American colonies (1749-1873); Canada and the Atlantic world; the history of Quebec; and liberalism and nationalism in Canada and Quebec (nineteenth and twentieth centuries). His most recent book is Le concept de liberte au Canada a l'epoque des Revolutions atlantiques (1776-1838) (2010).

Review:

"Many of us who teach history want to introduce our students as early as possible to two essential skills of the discipline: interpreting primary sources and identifying and analyzing historiographical arguments. . . [This] reader, which would engage students with current historiographical
debates and encourage them to seek their own interpretations of sources from the past, promises to be a very effective aid in helping students develop these skills."

--Willeen Keough, Simon Fraser University
