It begins with five chapters giving a broad chronological narrative of Canada's place within the British Empire, from the foundation of the first British bases in Canada in the early seventeenth century, until the patriation of the Canadian constitution in 1982. A series of specialized chapters focus on Newfoundland's history between 1869 and 1949, on the history of British migration to Canada, on the attitudes of French Canadians and Canada's Aboriginal peoples to the imperial relationship, on the role played by gender in the construction of imperial identities, on the economic relationship between Canada and Britain, and on the history and legacy of imperial law." "The book's overall focus is on examining the part that Canada played in the British Empire, and on understanding Canadian attitudes towards the Empire. With contributions from leading scholars in the field, it is essential reading for anyone interested either in the history of Canada or in the history of the British Empire."--Jacket." ;
