THE HISTORY OF CANADA., McNaught, Kenneth.
201 McNaught, Kenneth. THE HISTORY OF CANADA.
New York Praeger 1970 First Edition Very Good Very Good 
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.

THE END OF ORDER: VERSAILLES 1919., Mee, Charles L., Jr.
202 Mee, Charles L., Jr. THE END OF ORDER: VERSAILLES 1919.
New York E.P. Dutton 1980 0525098100 / 9780525098102 First Edition Very Good Very Good- 
301 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). "The first world war and the Versailles Treaty that followed produced the most serious upheaval in the long and stormy course of modern world history. Four great empires - Germany, Austria-Hungary, Turkey, and Russia - were part of the war's rubble. Far from restoring the world to order, the diplomats who met in 1919 at Paris and at Versailles plunged the world again, this time irretrievably, into the chaos of the twentieth century. It was the end of order. At three o'clock on the afternoon of May 7, 1919, the head of the German delegation to the Paris Peace Conference entered a room in the Trianon Palace of Versailles and was 'dazzled and disoriented by the sudden explosion of sunlight reflected in the vast mirrors, the chandeliers and white walls'. Brockdorff-Rantzau was further bewildered by the Treaty that was presented to him - 'a mass of cross references and changed paragraphs' covering 200 printed pages and 140 articles. Yet nobody had studied the document - not the barrel-chested, shrewd, ferocious Clemenceau, commonly called 'The Tiger'; not the mercurial and crafty Lloyd George; and not Woodrow Wilson, the orator who looked like a Presbyterian minister and had been hailed as the Savior of Europe. What happened when the three most powerful heads of state gathered to establish a new world order is the subject of this important book. By turns appalling and hilarious, but informed throughout by a tragic sense of irony, this book is at once a work of art and a relentless disclosure of human beings caught in the process of making their own history." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, soft crease down spine, faint tiny foxing marks on edge of text block - mainly top edge, small light soiling mark in bottom margin of page 101. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very small light stain under laminate of front flap - text is legible, light foxing on inside top edge - mainly on front panel, minor edge wear, minor rubbing.

"Between July 1950 and August 1955, when the last Royal Canadian Navy ship returned home from Korea, a total of eight Canadian destroyers performed twenty-one single tours of duty manned by more than 6,000 sailors. In recounting the efforts of the many who served in those almost forgotten ships, (the author) depicts a navy at mid-century, determined to assert its distinct Canadian identity. His is an account of a war viewed from the vantage point of the lower deck; of one whose own experiences and those of his shipmates are testimony to the fact that those who served with the RCN in Korea acquitted themselves admirably and in a manner that has long deserved the recognition and respect of all Canadians."

289 pp, 8 3/4" H. B&w plates. "(T)he story of Southwestern Ontario as reflected in the columns of 'The London Free Press' for the last hundred years. By its very nature a newspaper is a diary of the times, a mirror held to the contemporary scene in its various aspects - local, national and international. Orlo Miller, a former staff member of (the paper), having spent several years in research, here presents a lively and readable account of what has taken place in the last ten decades. Here is no collection of dry statistical data but rather real, living, flesh-and-blood people taking part in historic incidents as reavealed in the yellowed columns. The growth of London from a struggling backwoods village to the metropolis of the smiling countryside of Western Ontario and the parallel expansion of 'The London Free Press' from a tiny weekly, struggling for survival, to one of Canada's leading daily newspapers form the twin themes from which Orlo Miller has skilfully spun a single story."

London Harrap 1979 0245534121 / 9780245534126 Reprint Very Good Very Good 
204pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). The third book in the "Emily" series. " 'Emily of New Moon' has now left the world of the High School, so vividly encountered in 'Emily Climbs', and the real battles of life begin in earnest for the orphan determined to overcome her early handicaps. In a dramatic and unexpected way she achieves success as a writer just as L.M. Montgomery did with 'Anne of Green Gables', after refusing an offer to go to New York and work in journalism. But she finds the problems of love and marriage far more difficult, and the author keeps the reader in genuine suspense until the last few pages. In the opinion of many critics the Emily books are superior to the 'Anne of Green Gables' series, for the author puts far more of herself and her real experiences into them. Whereas the Anne books are clearly written to entertain, the Emily books are written more from the heart, and thus carry greater conviction."

"Mrs. Moodie, a refined and sophisticated person by upbringing and inclination, looks, not back, but about her at the relatively advanced society which had grown up in the clearings along the 'front' of the St. Lawrence and Lake Ontario. Here we are concerned, not with the woodsman's axe and the primitive struggle against nature, not with the solitary but with social man. Mrs. Moodie is quite sure that this society is in a much healthier condition than the one she had known in England: She associates the improvement with the mixing of the classes in the new society and thinks that the absence of convention and prejudice in the relations between various occupational groups is partly due to a 'friendly' American influence. She likes the greater liveliness in social intercourse, and better still she likes the way in which the stripping away of the old preconceptions makes possible a true estimate of a man's worth which she sees simply as the sum of his native ability, his industry, his moral training and his education."
