Canadian Working-Class History, Third Edition
Canadian Working-Class History: Selected Readings, Third Edition, is an updated version of the bestselling reader that brings together recent and classic scholarship on the history, politics, and social groups of the working class in Canada. Some of the changes readers will find in the new edition include better representation of women scholars and nine provocative and ground-breaking new articles on racism and human rights; women’s equality; gender history; Quebec sovereignty; and the environment.
This is a very strong anthology, and, to my knowledge, there is nothing comparable for teaching Canadian labour and working-class history. The book covers a lot of important issues, especially issues of gender as well as ethnicity and 'race.' This collection is also particularly useful because it covers a broad time frame.
