Synopsis: An evocative and beautifully written history of some of Canada’s earliest settlers, and their search for a definitive home.
In 1604, a small group of migrants fled political turmoil and famine in France to start a new colony on Canada’s east coast. Their roughly demarcated territory included what are now Canada’s Maritime provinces, land that was fought over by the British and French empires until the Acadians were finally expelled in 1755. Their diaspora persists to this day.
The Acadians is the definitive history of a little-known part of the North American past, and the quintessential story of a people in search of their identity. In the absence of a state, what defines an Acadian is elusive and while today’s Acadian community centred in New Brunswick is more confident than ever, it is entering a contentious debate about its future.
James Laxer’s compelling book brilliantly explores one of Canada’s oldest and most distinct cultural groups, and shows how their complex, often tragic history reflects the larger problems facing Canada and the world today.
About the Author: James Laxer is one of Canada’s leading political thinkers and the author of fourteen books, including the bestselling Stalking the Elephant and The Border. A professor of political science at York University and a frequent commentator on the economy, he lives in Toronto.
