Volume XIV of the Canadian Centenary Series

Now available as e-books for the first time, the Canadian Centenary Series is a comprehensive nineteen-volume history of the peoples and lands which form Canada. Although the series is designed as a unified whole so that no part of the story is left untold, each volume is complete in itself.

The age of Laurier and Borden in Canada spanned a quarter of a century of dramatic growth, during which the burgeoning dominion altered radically in size and quality. A population increase of over three million, the creation of two western provinces, the opening of the north and the northwest, new levels of foreign trade and foreign investment -- these advances constituted the tangible aspects of the transformation. 

But the Canada that burst forth during this period was new as well in spirit and outlook. Immigration, world war, linguistic and religious differences, and the waning of Canada’s agrarian character caused fundamental and striking shifts in the nation’s DNA -- both physical and cultural. The transformation occurred against a backdrop of global changes, worldwide urban industrial growth, and new balances of power creating an international climate that affected Canada more profoundly than she could affect it. In surveying this period of history, professors Brown and Cook have examined the relevant writing and research, including the exciting work of a new generation of historians.

First published in 1974, Canada, 1896-1921, an incisive and mature work of scholarship on a crucial phase in the history of Canada, is available here as an e-book for the first time.
