Product Description


Desiring Canada offers a new and useful way to think about how our identifications with Canada are produced through popular cultural texts, artefacts, and performances that are state-mediated. Persuasively argued and well-grounded in familiar aspects of the Canadian cultural landscape, it will surely appeal to educated readers concerned with all things Canadian.’ (Maurice Charland, Department of Communication Studies, Concordia University)

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It was a mandatory reading for a history University Course.
Book was sometimes filled with dry material. The book was written by two authors, one of them is an excellent writer, the other one is not so good, so it gets boring in parts.
The book seems to touch on the same point over and over again.
