Overview


Now in its fourth edition, A History of the Canadian Peoples continues to be a skilful condensation of the two-volume history by J.M. Bumsted. In a single articulate volume, it covers the whole of Canadian history from pre-contact times to the present, integrating social, cultural, political, and economic history into a coherent overarching narrative.
The fourth edition includes more material on multiculturalism, immigration, and racism, specifically to the post-1918 chapters, as well as material on women and work in the 21st century. Many new historical images have been added to support the already robust photo and image program engaging the reader and drawing them into each time period discussed.

Engrossing, thorough, and timely, J.M. Bumsted's narrative provides a comprehensive picture of Canada then and now.
