The History of the Canadian Peoples has been one of the most-respected Canadian history texts for many years. The fifth edition builds on established strengths - superior author reputations, social history focus, four-colour design, and student-friendly, vivid writing style - with the addition of some attractive new features. Maps have been re-drawn and augmented; there are more colour illustrations throughout; and highlight boxes point out and explain aspects of historiography. For Volume 2, there is new coverage of the twenty-first century in an entirely new chapter.

This text provides an inclusive history of Canada, covering not only the achievements of the rich and powerful, but also the lives of Aboriginal peoples, women, racial and ethnic minorities, and the poor, who also helped create the Canada we know today. The balance of political/economic history with social history is delicately managed.
