Each text is appropriate for one-semester Introductory Canadian History courses at the university level. Together, the texts provide the foundation for a two-semester Introductory Canadian History course.
Reflecting the most current scholarship, this historiographical collection of readings explores Canadian history topically. Rather than explore Canadian history chronologically, noting significant events, the authors have compiled writings on recurring Canadian themes. By comparing differing interpretations of historical evidence and different approaches to historical problems, students are encouraged to think critically about the issues that have shaped Canada as a nation.
