The Illustrated History of Canada, Revised Edition
Edited by Craig Brown.
Published by Key Porter Books Ltd., 2007.
|A Canadian classic, now completely revised.
Published in 1987, The Illustrated History of Canada was the first comprehensive, authoritative one-volume history of our nation. It featured text by seven of Canadas leading historians and hundreds of engravings, lithographs, cartoons, maps, posters, and photographs. Together, these elements created a sweeping chronicle of Canada from its earliest times to yesterday's news.
With this revised edition, The Illustrated History of Canada has been fully updated to bring readers into the twenty-first century, with contemporary material on such topics as the rise of small government, the recognition of Native land claims, Canadas role in the post-Cold War "peace", and the Martin and Harper governments.
Fifteen years after its debut, The Illustrated History of Canada remains a must-have reference guide for all Canadians interested in the history-and the future-of our country.
