640 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs, tables. "(1920-1940) was a critical period when the Mennonites' survival in Canada was under a variety of external threats. It was also an age in which Mennonite history was marked by fragmentation even in their own communities. During this twenty-year timespan the battle for separate schooling led to a significant emigration of Canadian Mennonites to Latin America, while another struggle was waged with our immigration authorities to allow the entry of Russian Mennonites into Canada. The book also covers the impact of the Depression on the Mennonites and their efforts to preserve their culture and racial identity. The book ends with the response of the Mennonites to the outbreak of the Second World War." Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very light rubbing/soiling.
