About the Author:

JOHN H. TAYLOR is an associate professor of history at Carleton University in Ottawa. He is an associate editor of the Urban History Review and a founding member of the Canadian Urban History Association.


"...excellent colour illustrations and graceful descriptions...of Ottawa's special attractions... the maps (many of which are in colour) are well executed and there is a comprehensive index... recommended for both travellers and public libraries." (Barbara B. Aitken Canadian Book Review Annual)

"...a story told with skill and wit..." (Rod Currie Canadian Press)

" ... perfectly balanced ... It combines serious but eminently readable history with archival photos and maps in an ideal way." (William French Globe and Mail)

"This fine history moves with authority, conciseness and a good deal of wit on a broad front through a century and a half of civic history... Ottawa, An Illustrated History is a superb example of what a skilled historian can craft in the brief space of 200 pages.

This is also a superbly illustrated history...these images evoke a past that words can barely describe... forcefully written and revealingly illustrated, this book is...a wonderful read for all Canadians. (Duncan McDowall Canadian Geographic)
