Canada's First Century (Reissue)

Edited by Donald Creighton (deceased) and Donald Wright

  • Creighton's energetic, opinionated, and fast-moving account of the first 100 years of confederation broke with existing molds.
  • Creighton's awards for excellent include the Tyrrell Medal, the Governor General's Award, and the Molson Prize.
  • This text influenced a generation of historians to come, outselling Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex and, for a time, even the Bible.
  • Full context and insight into Creighton's complex personality are provided in a beautifully written introduction by Donald Wright, association professor of political science at University of New Brunswick.
  • Reproductions of photographs and political cartoons offer a visual history of the one hundred years after confederation.
