336 pp, 8 3/4" H. B&w maps. "The history of Canada is the story of an ever expanding frontier and of the attempt to create a new nation in the face of enormous physical and human obstacles. (The author) follows this development from the very first probings of the tiny bands of explorers, missionaries, and 'coureurs de bois' that opened up 'New France'. He examines the great military struggles for control of the continent in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, which played such a vital part in laying down the present political and racial divisions. (Later) Canadians faced the enormous problems of welding scattered communities into provinces and provinces into a self-governing federation. The political task of nation-building was itself closely bound up with the building of the railways and the exploitation of the country's vast resources. Professor McNaught analyzes these great economic and social changes, as well as the part Canada played in two world wars and the process by which the Dominion evolved a new role in international affairs and new relationships with both Britain and the United States. (Concludes) with a survey of postwar Canada, which emphasizes that the expansion of the human frontier and the problems of unity and nationhood remain part of the Canadian question." Two very tiny stains on the half-title page, very small soft bump at top corner of middle third of pages, faint scuff on top of text block, very light wrinkling at top of spine, minor edge wear. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has very light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.
