9780321491107: Foundations: Readings in Pre-Confederation Canadian History, Vol. 1 (2nd Edition)

Foundations: Readings in Pre-Confederation Canadian History is a sample reader of pre-confederation Canadian history, with a careful balance of regional representation.  The sections of the text are grouped in overlapping time periods that have become more-or-less conventional for the study of the pre-Confederation period: Beginnings to 1663; France in America, 1663-1756; British North America, 1749-1821; Maturing Colonial Societies, 1821-1867; and Industrializing Canada, 1840-1867.  With updated material to ensure a modern appeal, including 18 new readings, this book will give history students a balanced sample of some of the best and most recent readings dealing with the history of Canada before Confederation.

Review:

Conrad and Finkel have a good sense of both ‘classic’ articles and recent literature.  The selections are sensitive to the needs of academics wishing to emphasize social history elements in a Canadian survey course. 

   - Peter S. McInnis, St. Francis Xavier University

 

The introductions to each section were quite useful... I like their emphasis on social history and also their regional representativeness...I have been quite pleased with [Foundations]. 

   - Willeen G. Keough, Simon Fraser University
