The Peoples of Canada: A Post-Confederation History is J.M. Bumsted's best-selling survey of Canada's social, cultural, political, and economic history from 1867 to the present. While retaining all the hallmark features of preceding editions, this fourth edition has been thoroughly revised to incorporate new material on many key areas: modern culture, including the arts, music and literature; hockey; the environment and the Arctic; and key events in international and domestic politics.
Featuring five insightful essays on the writing of history, along with numerous biographical sketches, excerpts from primary source documents, illustrations, maps, and pedagogical aids, the fourth edition remains the definitive introduction to post-Confederation Canadian history.
For over 25 years, John M. (Jack) Bumsted taught history at the University of Manitoba. He is now enjoying retirement.
