Narrating a Nation: Canadian History Post-Confederation

Narrating a Nation: Canadian History Post-Confederation is a lively, narrative approach to post-confederation history. Events are followed chronologically, focusing on a story developing over time. The chronological approach allows students to makes sense of our history, and grounds their knowledge of the past in a clear political context. The focus on key events allows readers to appreciate the social, economic, and ideological complexities and develop a sense of linkage and causality that is at the bedrock of historical understanding.

Discussion questions at the end of each chapter reinforce the reader''s understanding of the material and provide an opportunity for reflection.
