Canada in the European Age, 1453-1919

Synopsis

Canada in the European Age, 1453-1919 by R. T. Naylor

A fast-paced tour through several centuries of Canadian history

Reviews

An author who can visualize the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway from Winnipeg to Vancouver in 1880-82 as an act of British imperialism linking India to Britain must be praised for raising Canadian history to new levels of perception. Canadian Book Review Annual An outstanding work of synthesis that merits a wide readership among all those interested in a cogent challenge to the liberal view of Canadian history. British Journal of Canadian Studies Refreshingly sardonic and elegantly sarcastic, Naylor writes with wit and unusual antagonism to the powerful. American Historical Review
