9781442600195: A Country Nourished on Self-Doubt: Documents in Post-Confederation Canadian History, Third Edition

A Country Nourished on Self-Doubt provides coast-to-coast-to-coast representation and features an impressive balance of personal, formal, and legal documents. Four new chapters cover sexual advice in Victorian Canada, treaties of the far north, drugs in the 1920s, and youth in the 1960s. Also, two new features make this edition the most student-friendly to date: brief notes introducing each document, and a student guide to reading primary sources.

About the Author:

Thor Frohn-Nielsen teaches in the Department of History at Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

Review:

From Victorian sexuality to hippies to the 'peacekeeping myth,' Thomas Thorner's A Country Nourished on Self-Doubt explores a remarkably comprehensive range of topics in Canadian history. Each chapter is skilfully introduced, key themes and questions are identified, and the documents are a treasure: always illuminating, often infuriating, and as raw and vivid as any collection of primary materials that I've seen assembled for undergraduate students. I will definitely be using the book in my survey course.

(Christopher Pennington, University of Toronto Scarborough)

The collection of documents in the third edition of A Country Nourished on Self-Doubt could be assigned to complement both survey courses and senior-level seminars on post-Confederation history. Important themes include the debate over Riel's sanity, the impact of residential schools on aboriginal peoples, suffrage and the role of women in modern Canada, Canada's participation in World War I and peacekeeping after World War II, attitudes to immigration in the early 1900s, and the development of multiculturalism. The current volume introduces students to political, social, and cultural topics and, with fewer documents in each section, students have a clearer grasp of the main ideas. This revised collection is a valuable teaching resource that allows instructors to enhance the learning environment in their classrooms and encourages students to discover how interesting Canadian history can be.

(David Mills, University of Alberta)
