A History of the Canadian Peoples is an abridged edition of the much-lauded two-volume work, The Peoples of Canada. Like its predecessor, this book provides an overview of the economy, society, the family, and culture, as well as political and constitutional issues. Sidebars offer fascinating perspectives on the experiences of early explorers, settlers, ordinary citizens, and politicians, as well as more in-depth portraits of leading figures. This book, a skilful condensation by the author of the two-volume version, describes the Native peoples before contact with early European visitors; exploration, settlement, and the development of British North America; the federation of the provinces of British North America in the Dominion of Canada; industrialization and urbanization; and social and political developments that conclude with a look at Canadian culture in the 1990s. The highly readable text, sidebars, suggestions for further reading, and illustrations offer an insightful look at Canadian history.
