    1 thought on “The Illustrated History of Canada: A Canadian Classic, Now Completely Revised

    1. I read this book to refresh my Canadian history, particularly history prior to the 20th century. Over two-thirds of the book is of this time period which was very suitable for me.There is a strong emphasis through-out of the impact of the new European explorers and settlers on the indigenous people. The French and English would not have been able to survive without the aid of the indigenous peoples when they first arrived in the 1600’s and 1700’s.As a short introduction let me emphasis what [...]

    2. It took me a while to finish this book (started it over a year before I finished it). It is not that it is badly written; it is actually quite packed tight with information and goes thoroughly through the history of Canada. Not having a breadth of knowledge on Canadian history, it was laborious at times for me to take it all in so-to-speak. With that said and barring the fact that I have read no other histories on Canada, this book was quite informative and made me appreciate our northern neighb [...]

    3. After months of reading this tome of Canadian history, I feel enlightened. I learned things I never thought of, felt like I was too a Canadian. I loved having this book to read, and will plan on using it in any classes I end up teaching some day.

    4. Good comprehensive history of Canada. I felt like it was a little light in modern history (and it ends in the 1990s) but its was really good for the early history of Canada.

    5. The start is pretty good, but later it becomes a cycle of names and dates without much interesting stories.

    6. Unlike the greater portion of tomes dealing with the intangible Canadian history, this book does not begin at Pangaea.Reading rather like a compilation of six books comprising a greater body (not unlike holy texts - in fact, this book has been unofficially called the "bible" of Canadian history), a sextet of famed Canadian scholars and authors focused on their own particular segment of the Canadian chronology, with editor Craig Brown seeing to the cohesive and continuity of each chapter.(This la [...]

    7. Excellent overview of Canadian history bogs down in places with un-even authorship and varied writing styles. However, the reach of a book that describes the first contacts with First Nations peoples, through the early development of Upper and Lower Canada, through Confederation, the War Years, the rise of cities and Liberalism, Separatism and the rise and decline of affluence is impressive. I encourage anyone with an interest in Canadian history and politics to read this book. Through it you ma [...]

    8. This was a very interesting read, and it read well despite the fact that every chapter was authored by a different person. I found the first few chapters to be the most intereting ones, perhaps because those events are furthest back in time and therefore more ''exotic''. I also found them more interesting because they detailed a lot more of the social aspects of life in Canada, whereas the last chapters seemed a bit dryer, talking mostly about parties, numbers and elections. Perhaps, also, it co [...]

    9. A good book to start your journey into the history of Canada. It is entertaining, engaging and packed with knowledge. Loved all chapters ,except found the last chapter a dry read that dealt with the political history of Canada through the 19th , 20th and the present century. However that last chapter piqued my curiosity to know more about the canadian political machinery. This book is a good map to pick your destinations and hit the road to explore.

    10. This is a decent book. It makes sure it gets lots in but lacks the sort of excitement that marks great history.
