Author Robert Bone adopts an innovative approach that views Canada as characterized by four "faultlines" of tensions: aboriginal and non-aboriginal peoples, French and English Canadians, centrist and decentrist forces, and the forces of immigration. Bone explores theses tensions, arguing that they act as forces that ensure that Canada will remain a country of regions. The structure of each chapter is the same, in order to facilitate comparisons across regional lines. Each region features a key topic (or focus) section, which allows students to gain in-depth knowledge about a particular industry or sector of the economy that is important to that area.
The text incorporates numerous pedagogical tools including vignettes (boxed inserts), tables, figures, maps, and charts. The end-of-chapter material includes notes, key terms, a bibliography, and an annotated list of further readings. In addition, each chapter includes an overview, a list of objectives, and a summary.
