Important history of the role of the post office Sept. 29 2007
By Terence M. Hines - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Historians have given much too little attention to the role of the post office in the development of nationhood, both in Canada and the United States. This excellent book begins to correct this error for Canada. It describes the vital role the post office played in bringing the country togather. In fact, it would have been impossible to have a nation of any size without a postal service.
