Product Description

Review

"...a wonderful, rollicking read." (Dean F. Oliver Canadian Book Review Annual)

"Finkel...offers a detailed social panorama of the shaping of post-Second World War Canada. This is a useful and, more important, concerned illustrated survey." (Globe and Mail)

"History prof Finkel examines the watershed events and trends that have influenced Canada's history in the past 50 years -- among them the evolution of the welfare state, U.S. domination, Quebec's Quiet Revolution and the women's movement." (Britt Hagarty Vancouver Sun)

"Our Lives will greatly interest general readers as well as the academic community. Finkel's excellent work should certainly be considered by teachers as a text on post-war Canada." (John MacFarlane Canadian Social Studies)

"Finkel's wide-ranging and coherent history begins before World War II... Finkel's account of Quebec's Quiet Revolution and the complicated skein of personalities and events that created the Quebec/Canada imbroglio, including the impact of the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement, is both detailed and concise." (Rae Murphy Literary Review of Canada)

"This book is the first to look at the people, forces and events that have shaped post-war Canada. All the major themes of our history are covered, such as the evolution of the welfare state, our domination by the United States, our days of importance as a Middle Power, the quiet Revolution, the growth of First Nations' Power, the flowering of English-Canadian Nationalism, the women's movement, Quebec Nationalism, and globalization. An excellent read." (R.J. Love Fredericton Daily Gleaner)

"In a series of lucid chapters he divides the story into three parts that add up to a meaningful narrative on the making of contemporary Canada... it [provokes] readers into a reconsideration of the key events that have shaped the country." (David Frank Saint John Telegraph-Journal)
