9781442637078: A Short History of the State in Canada (Themes in Canadian History)

A concise, elegant survey of a complex aspect of Canadian history, A Short History of the State in Canada examines the theory and reality of governance within Canada’s distinctive political heritage: a combination of Indigenous, French, and British traditions, American statism and anti-statism, and diverse, practical experiments and experiences.

E.A. Heaman takes the reader through the development of the state in both principle and practice, examining Indigenous forms of government before European contact; the interplay of French and British colonial institutions before and after the Conquest of New France; the creation of the nineteenth-century liberal state; and, finally, the rise and reconstitution of the modern social welfare state. Moving beyond the history of institutions to include the development of political cultures and social politics, A Short History of the State in Canada is a valuable introduction to the topic for political scientists, historians, and anyone interested in Canada’s past and present.

About the Author:

E.A. Heaman is an associate professor in the Department of History and Classical Studies at McGill University.

Review:

‘Heaman has written a useful, lucid history of Canadian governance that gives full weight to the First Nations, the French and English regimes, and modernization.’

(J.L. Granatstein Choice Magazine vol 53:08:2016)

‘For Canadian historians, this is an important book.... It is conceptually brilliant, interpreting the material in ways that are always stimulating and often novel... It opens up its subject like never before and for that it is a most welcome volume.’

(Ian Radforth Canadian Historical Review, vol 97:03:2016)
