Published in 1987, The Illustrated History of Canada was the first comprehensive, authoritative one-volume history of our nation. It featured text by seven of Canada's leading historians and hundreds of engravings, lithographs, cartoons, maps, posters, and photographs. Together, these elements created a sweeping chronicle of Canada from its earliest times to yesterday's news. Now, The Illustrated History of Canada has been fully updated to bring readers into the twenty-first century, with contemporary material on such topics as the rise of small government, the recognition of Native land claims, and Canada's role in the post-Cold War "peace." Now more than ever, The Illustrated History of Canada is a must-have reference guide for all Canadians interested in the history--and the future--of our country.
