The West Beyond the West: A History of British Columbia
Critically acclaimed since its publication in 1991, the BC history of choice has now been revised. Here is the story of Canada's westernmost province, beginning at the point of contact between Native peoples and Europeans and continuing up to 1995. Jean Barman tells the story by focusing not only on the history made by leaders in government but also by including the roles of women, immigrants, and Native peoples. She interweaves political, social, economic, and demographic events into an absorbing account that reveals the roots of contemporary British Columbia in all its diversity and apparent contradictions.
The revised edition has been updated to include information from the 1991 census and revisions have been made throughout the book, including the references, to update it to 1995.
