Through war, depression, and social upheaval, the first half of the twentieth century was a period of unprecedented turbulence in Canada. In this lively and contentious survey, Robert Bothwell, lan Drummond, and John English explore the political and economic forces that shaped this era of change.

Beginning at the turn of the century, they consider the status of Canada in the empire and the world, the burgeoning growth of its economy, and the development of social and labour problems, up to the eruption of 1914. They discuss the political currents running through Canada during two wars, the interwar economic boom and depression, and the plans for post-war reconstruction, and assess the impact of these and other events on Canada's political, economic, social, and cultural institutions.

From Our Editors

Looking at Canada in a political context, Canada 1900-1945 examines how labour problems, two wars, an economic boom and depression, and post-war reconstruction affected political, economic, social and cultural institutions. A time of unprecedented turbulence within Canada's social fabric, the events of the early 20th century led to some of the issues we still grapple with today.

Editorial Reviews

'A very readable book: insightful and fluent of style and sometimes sardonic and pungent in expression.'
