14 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 1,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This sampling of the work of J.M.S. Careless in the area of Canadian historical studies was selected by the eminent scholar himself, and represents much of his finest work. The collection spans the years from 1940 to 1990 in the long and distinguished career of one of Canada's best-known historians. In Careless' own words, "history is dated." Its very claim is that the past does not fade into nothing but continues to matter, whether or not the purely present-minded are able to recognize that basic fact. These essays cover the main lines of Careless' career in Canadian scholarship. The collection is divided into four general subject areas each covering a main preoccupation in a distinguished career of over 40 years. The first section concentrates on the earliest theme in his writing: George Brown and his times. The second centres on exploring various aspects of frontierism and metropolitanism in Canadian history. The third part deals with cities and regions focusing particularly on the West and 19th-century Ontario. The final section picks up the threads of other themes including limited identities Canada and multiculturalism

Brown of The Globe by J. M. S Careless( )

26 editions published between 1960 and 2008 in English and held by 1,088 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Brown (1818-1880) was the influential editor of the Toronto Globe, the most powerful newspaper in British North America. He was also leader of the Liberal Party, arch-rival of John A. Macdonald, and the statesman who held the key to Confederation at its most critical stage. This second volume traces the sectional conflict that brought political deadlock by 1864 and makes clear Brown's vital function in finding a way out. It also sets out in meticulous detail his career after leaving party membership in 1867. This comprehensive two-volume biography of George Brown was first published in 1959 (volume 1) and 1963 (volume 2). In 1963, Professor Careless received the Governor General's Award for the full biography
