A History of the Canadian Peoples

Fifth Edition

J. M. Bumsted and Michael C. Bumsted

  • Balanced. The fourth edition has been revised to offer a more balanced division of pre- and post-Confederation periods, enhancing the text's flexibility for use in semester-long or full-year courses.
  • Engaging. Bumsted's clear and lively style weaves together social, political, and economic history, providing students with an accessible and appealing narrative.
  • Contemporary. Brand new historiographical essays contributed by historians from across the country demonstrate the continued research and interest in the discipline.
  • Current. Includes the most-up-to-date research throughout, including a fully updated final chapter, "Into the New Millennium," detailing the latest events in Canada's history and how they relate to the past.
  • Visual. An outstanding art program, featuring over 200 pieces of art, is integrated throughout, helping students visualize the story of Canada's history.
  • Timelines. Chapter-opening timelines offer students a brief overview of major historical events and help situate them in relation to one another.
  • Boxes. A new, thematic box program features primary source documents, provides additional background, context, biographies of lesser-known figures, and highlights important pieces of material so that students are exposed to more than just major events, people, and places.
  • Supplementary Material. A strong and varied suite of ancillary material - including a primary source library, visual history unit, student study guide, PowerPoint slides, test generator, and image bank - ensures comprehensive instructor support and in-depth student engagement.
