The Penguin History of Canada
Canada possesses a history rich in incident and personality, and in this work, Professor McNaught traces that history from the earliest expeditions, in search of fish and fur, to the 20th century. He offers a succinct analysis of the long constitutional battle and informed comment on how the social and economic background of energy and natural resources influences constitutional policies.
