Book Review: This book is an illustrated history focussing on images of Sir John Franklin artifacts, maps, written documents, paintings, and wood engravings.
Book Review: Albert Braz’s Apostate Englishman presents a comprehensive study of Grey Owl, whose death in 1938 triggered an international scandal. The indigenous identity claimed by Grey Owl allowed him a curious public credibility on environmental issues, yet the legitimacy of his conservation work was questioned following his death, when the public learned that he was really an Englishman.
Book Review: David Bercuson captures his theme well in the latest edition of his old standby Maple Leaf Against the Axis, now revised, updated, and re-released as Our Finest Hour. Bercuson has rewritten some sections, believing he had been too harsh in his judgment in earlier versions of the original.
Book Review: In Arming and Disarming, Blake Brown undertakes a thorough review of the history of gun control in Canada and explodes the myth that we have never been as gunloving as our American neighbours.
