Product Description
The Winnipeg General Strike of 1919, which involved approximately 30,000 workers, is Canada's best-known strike. When the State Trembled recovers the hitherto untold story of the Citizens' Committee of 1000, formed by Winnipeg's business elite in order to crush the revolt and sustain the status quo.

This account, by the authors of the award-winning Walk Towards the Gallows, reveals that the Citizens drew upon and extended a wide repertoire of anti-labour tactics to undermine working-class unity, battle for the hearts and minds of the middle class, and stigmatize the general strike as a criminal action. Newly discovered correspondence between leading Citizen lawyer A.J. Andrews and Acting Minister of Justice Arthur Meighen illuminates the strategizing and cooperation that took place between the state and the Citizens. While the strike's break was a crushing defeat for the labour movement, the later prosecution of its leaders on charges of sedition reveals abiding fears of radicalism and continuing struggles between capital and labour on the terrain of politics and law. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars A Word Of Warning
Books on this interesting character are not plentiful, therefore it was a must for my library. How reliable are the facts provided? Jeffery gives the impression that Kitchener was victor over the Mahdi in 1898. Elsewhere I amled to believe the Mahdi died soon after Gordon. Did anyone proof read thisbook? After all it is University of Toronto Press! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Leacock on the Origins of Canada
This book was used as volume one of the Chronicles of Canada series, a thirty-two volume set of short, easy-to-read books pertaining to Canada's history and heritage.The Dawn of Canadian History is intended to set the stage for the series, and discusses in a general sense the primordial beginnings of Canada, theories on how the continent was populated by native peoples, the possible accidental visits by the Vikings, and early explorations by the Europeans.Keep in mind that the book was first published in 1914 and therefore contains much dated information.Leacock's opinions also at times reflect those of his contemporaries and are clearly now not acceptable.All in all, though, an interesting little book, worth reading despite its faults, especially if you're into Leacock and want to experience some of his non-humorous writings. ...

Product Description
A wild ride through Canadian history, fully revised and updated!

This new edition of Canadian History For Dummies takes readers on a thrilling ride through Canadian history, from indigenous native cultures and early French and British settlements through Paul Martin's shaky minority government. This timely update features all the latest, up-to-the-minute findings in historical and archeological research. In his trademark irreverent style, Will Ferguson celebrates Canada's double-gold in hockey at the 2002 Olympics, investigates Jean Chr├ętien's decision not to participate in the war in Iraq, and dissects the recent sponsorship scandal.Amazon.com Review
We always knew Canadian history could be fun, and Will Ferguson proves it in his second edition of Canadian History for Dummies. Approachable in the extreme, this text is fun because of Ferguson's undisputed gift for unearthing our national quirkiness and for illuminating those parts of our heritage that make us a unique people. At first the academic reader might register surprise at the choice of author for the Canadian history text in this wildly popular series, but this is truly a match made in editorial heaven. With his arrestingly titled Bastards and Boneheads and Beauty Tips from Moose Jaw, Ferguson has made a strong claim to being the light-hearted guardian of our national popular culture, and this book is true to form, with anecdotes, asides, bullets, and a fast-paced style this book makes Canadian history more user-friendly than ever before. Behind it all, however, is serious and comprehensive Canadian history. Ferguson acknowledges the help of Don Smith--one of our truly great academic historians and textbook authors--and his expertise is evident throughout. But, as headings like "Western alienation or that #%@!* Trudeau" (382) and "Pemmican--Delicious and Nutritious" show, this is Ferguson's book, featuring his unparalleled gift at striking just the right note --William Newbigging ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Valuable book
I purchased this book by a recommendation from my friend. after reading this book.....its amazing, smooth & easy. If you start to read the first pages of this book, you will not stop till you end it.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very decent book for those who know next to nothing about Canadian History.
For a novice, or a person, who is interested in History, this book will be a must-have. It narrates all Canadian history (almost up to present days) in a humorous easy-going way. However, there is one consequence to reading this book - most likely you will need some visuals (which the book lacks entirely - for a good reason), which will prompt you to use more serious works on Canadian History.
Summarizing: this book is very nice for an overview, for ppl, who don't want to just touch on the subject (raising my hand), and for kids!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars This guys' a really good writer (like he needs my approval)!
I can't believe a history book is so much fun to read.As a Canadian who has been living in the US for 45 years I thought I should try to be a little more literate about my native history.I felt he really cut through the BS and gave a fair look at Native, French and English sides of the story.It's actually a page turner, who would have though?

5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Overview of Canadian History
I've been exploring Canadian history quite a bit over the past few years, starting with picking up "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Canadian History" by Ann Douglas and the CBC's "Canada: A People's Hisotry." I found Will Ferguson's "Canadian History for Dummies" to be a humorous, fact filled, and very current overview of Canadian history (I bought it six months after it came out). I find it to be a very welcome addition to my book collection.

3-0 out of 5 stars Very Good, But Could Have Been Better.
I purchased this book because I've long wondered why that portion of Canada south of the St. Lawrence River didn't get lumped in with the U.S. colonies. That question was answered, along with a lot of others. Very enjoyable, clear, concise with a bit of cheek. Would have given it 5 stars except for one glaring shortcoming-- Where are the maps? This is after all a "Dummies" book.Its readers by definition aren't familiar with the places being discussed. Some maps would have been very useful to put the narrative information into context. ...
