Abstract

This is the third volume (though second to be published) of the Historial Atlas of Canada, which traces the development of Canada and its peoples from pre-historic times. Over 60 double page colour plates are presented, each giving data and explanatory text to illustrate the growth of the country. The volume is divided into two parts. The first part, the Great Transformation, from 1891 to 1929, covers a period of dramatic change in the economy, population, society, and landscape of the country. The topics include the expansion and consolidation of railways, financial institutions, resource development, settling of the prairies, the sea and livelihood in Atlantic Canada, prairie agriculture, the Great War, migration, schooling and social structure, religious adherence, recreational land, labour and strikes, and organized sport. The second part, Crisis and Response, covering the years from 1929 to 1961, devotes several plates to the Great Depression, then moves on to topics such as the Second World War, farming and fishing, retailing, society in the north, population changes, the urban system, education, social insurance, the changing work force, and national broadcasting. -after Publisher
