Written by Ian Henderson, Peter Lawley, Norm Probert, and Don Quinlan.
Published by Oxford University Press, 1999.


World Affairs: Defining Canada’s Role examines the prominent part Canada has played in the three defining events of the twentieth century: World War I, World War II, and the search for peace that followed these catastrophic conflicts. Written with a high-school audience in mind, the story of Canada's involvement on the world stage is told in a clear, concise narrative supplemented by case studies, primary sources, eyewitness accounts, biographical profiles, timelines, and contemporary poetry and paintings. The text is further enhanced by a wealth of illustrations, maps and more than 100 photographs.
