In this book, Paul Phillips traces the position of British history inthe universities and shows how Canada's changing relationship withBritain has affected the history curriculum. In the early twentiethcentury, Canadian history began to develop as a distinct field, oftenlinked, however, with British history since the two subjects werefrequently taught by the same person. The British background andtraining of many academics also ensured the continuing importance ofBritish history at most universities until the 1950s.
