Preface: The past few years have seen some profound changes in the writing and interpretation of Canadian history, both in the subjects being explored and in the methodologies and conceptualizations used to illuminate them.

Chapter 1: A good deal has been written over the years about early exploration and discovery in North America, a process that began around the close of the fifteenth century and continued, for remote regions, until well into the nineteenth.

Book description
The broad-ranging selection of writings in Canadian history on early Canada, up to and including the period of Confederation, will introduce undergraduate students to the new approaches taken by historians in recent years. Many of the essays are revisionist-either implicitly or explicitly-and emphasize regional and social historiography. With its insightful discussions of both traditional and current scholarly issues, the book provides an enlightening supplement to the standard historiographical concerns covered by introductory courses in Canadian history and should serve as a starting point for student discussion and critical thinking.
