Promotional Information

A major contribution to the field. Until now, the literature has been sparsely populated, so this volume is a landmark. It is absolutely unique in its scope, and will attract Canadian anthropologists and others interested in the history of and the social sciences generally in Canada. -- Jennifer Brown, co-editor of Reading Beyond Words: Contexts for Native History This comprehensive history of Canadian anthropology, written by an expert group of authors, will form the foundation for future developments in the field. I strongly recommend it as an important text for undergraduates and graduate students. -- Richard Preston, author of Cree Narrative: Expressing the Personal Meanings of Events
