In this overview, H. V. Nelles presents Canadian history as one of continous transformation. From the arrival of French and British traders and colonists who added new social elements to the indigenous societies of North America, to the reconfiguration of this huge territory under British imperial authority, through the integration of diverse colonies into a national federation, and down to the new, volatile political order that has emerged in the last sixty years, H. V. Nelles' interpretation of Canadian history offers a view of Canada constantly emerging, adjusting, and redefining itself.
