Scott W. See. The History of Canada. Second Edition
Amenia, NY: Grey House Publishing, Inc., 2010. - 464 р.

First ed. published: Westport, Conn.: Greenwood Press, 2001.
This beautifully written narrative history paints a magnificent picture of the second largest nation on earth. Canada, with its overarching geography of over one million bodies of water, endless prairies, frozen reaches of the north, and awe-inspiring mountain ranges, holds many stunning lands. Often portrayed by the American media as but a pale reflection of the United States, Canada, as displayed here, has a truly complex and intricate image. The political struggles of the past and present and the clash over issues of ethnicity, race, religion, language, and culture are just some of the details that mark this country's unmatched uniqueness. From the earliest contact between Amerindians and Europeans to the current burden of regional, cultural, and ethnic diversity that characterizes Canada in the early 21st century, this history draws the reader into the drama that is Canada. Since its earliest settlement by the French and the British and its struggle as an arena between those contesting empires, Canada has been a center for disagreement and debate. This work examines the economic, political, and ethnic issues of this century, including Canada's participation in world affairs. Short biographies of notable people in Canadian history, a list of all the Prime Ministers in Canada, a timeline of important events, and a bibliographic essay of recommended books and websites add reference value to this engagingly written history.
