Sites of Power: A Concise History of Ontario focuses on the disparate groups of people who inhabited Ontario for the past 11,000 or so years. Peter Baskerville underscores how studying power relations can bring to light the contingent and variable history of a people in a given geographicregion. The author's premise that "power begets resistance" indicates the two-sided nature of the historical record. Sites of Power is as much about the visions of 'Ontario' held by those who resisted structures of power as it is about the more "official" visions held by those in power.
Peter A. Baskerville is at Department of History, University of Victoria.
