About the Book

In this revised and streamlined fourth edition of Interpreting Canada's Past: A Post-Confederation Reader, authentic primary documents and critical academic articles allow students to delve into this nation's fascinating history. Organized both chronologically and thematically, each chapter begins with an introduction that offers context for the documents that follow and includes an extensive list of questions for consideration and related readings. The fourth edition includes over 35 new primary and secondary documents, a new chapter on 'marketing the nation', and an enhanced treatment of visual history with examples from popular consumer culture and fine art throughout. This celebrated post-Confederation reader is the second volume of a two-volume set of readers that has been created to accompany J.M. Bumsted's two-volume text The Peoples of Canada and his single volume text A History of the Canadian Peoples.

Readership: Interpreting Canada's Past: A Post-Confederation Reader is intended for students of Canadian history. This course is usually taught at the second- or third-year level at universities.
