Our Lives: Canada After 1945, Second Edition
Written by Alvin Finkel.
Published by James Lorimer & Company Ltd., 2012.
|Our Lives: Canada After 1945 offers a short, comprehensive
history of post-war Canada. All the major events and developments in Canadian
history are discussed: the evolution of the welfare state; the growth of
economic domination by the United States; the halcyon days as a Middle Power;
the Quiet Revolution; the First Nations' quest for autonomy; the flowering of
English-Canadian nationalism; Quebec nationalism; the women's movement;
neo-conservatism; and globalization. Finkel covers political, economic, social,
and cultural history in this volume.
This second edition includes a substantial new chapter that discusses the people, events, and developments that have dominated the period from 1995 to 2012. This chapter looks at the growing social inequality within Canadian society; the effects of globalization on Canada's industries, economy, and workers; and the increasing environmental challenges that we face.
Extensively illustrated, Our Lives: Canada After 1945 is a uniquely accessible and comprehensive overview of a period only beginning to attract the attention of historians.
Alvin Finkel is a professor of history at Athabasca University. He is also the author of Business and Social Reform in the Thirties, The Social Credit Phenomenon in Alberta, and A History of Canadian Peoples.
