9781551307350: Canadian Society in the Twenty-First Century: A Historical Sociological Approach

Now in its second edition, Canadian Society in the 21st Century: A Historical Sociological Approach opens up an engaging and much-needed overview of our society, at a level appropriate for a wide range of courses in Canadian Studies, Sociology, and History. This original work examines the growth and development of Canadian society within a socio-historical framework. The authors investigate historical, economic, political, cultural, and ideological perspectives through three key relationships: Quebec and Canada, Canada and the United States, and Canada and the Aboriginal Nations. * Examines society as a set of relationships that emerge gradually over time as fostered, encouraged, and mediated by a set of institutions, in particular, the state and markets. * Explores society as the product of an historical narrative - a movie, rather than a snapshot - which enlists many literary devices, including myths, metaphors, symbols, heroes, villains, and tragic figures. * Identifies the complex relationship between individuals and society. Students are asked to consider to what extent individuals create society, and conversely, to what extent society creates individuals.

About the Author:

Trevor W. Harrison is Professor of Sociology at the University of Lethbridge and Director of Parkland Institute. Frank Gay (1920-1982) was a personal friend of the author's parents; an unforgettable character who once sold Trevor's dad a National steel guitar that remains in the family. John W. Friesen is Professor of Education at the Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary. His research interests include teacher education, ethnic studies, and Indigenous education.

Review:

"I wish I'd had this book when I taught this course. As the authors ably point out, it is hard to understand present day conflicts and conditions without understanding the forces that led to where we are today."-- Vic Satzewich, McMaster University
