9780886191474: The Illustrated history of Canada

First published in 1987, The Illustrated History of Canada was the first comprehensive, authoritative one-volume history of the country. It featured text by seven of Canada's leading historians and hundreds of engravings, lithographs, cartoons, maps, posters, and photographs. Together, these elements created a sweeping chronicle of Canada from its earliest times to yesterday's news. Now, The Illustrated History of Canada has been fully updated to bring readers into the twenty-first century, with contemporary material on such topics as the rise of small government, the recognition of Native land claims, and Canada's role in the post-Cold War "peace."

Review:

"This book presents the sweep of Canadian history, and a grand sweep it is." Montreal Gazette "This book reminds us of the things we have forgotten and the amazement and wonder experienced by those who were the first to discover this new world." Toronto Star "This is a fine general history of a huge, diverse nation with a rich heritage, and it is certainly in our interest to learn more about it." Jay Freeman, American Library Association
