The peoples of Canada by J. M Bumsted( Book )

75 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 1,506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Peoples of Canada - the first history of Canada by a single scholar in many years - J.M. Bumsted has broken with traditional emphases on political, constitutional, and military issues (though they are certainly not ignored) to focus on the economy, society, the family, and culture, and he treats other cultural identities and regions besides the bilingual-bicultural development based in Ontario/Quebec." "This second volume, A Post-Confederation History, of a two-volume work describes the period 1885-1919 as one of economic expansion, sustained by the Great War, in which there was a great wave of social reform connected with industrialization and urbanization. The period 1921-1945 is characterized by what Stephen Leacock called 'The Unsolved Riddle of Social Justice'. The Second World War brought the trappings of national sovereignty to Canada, and gave birth to the welfare state. The growth and affluence that followed - along with striking changes in lifestyles, and headlong developments in the arts - are described for the period 1945-1972. Finally, the years from the 1970s to the present - when all the givens of the past (Liberalism, centralism, and nationalism) were attacked from several directions and began to unravel - are brilliantly surveyed. The Epilogue, 'Towards the 21st Century', concludes with the referendum of October 1992." "J.M. Bumsted has provided a fresh and illuminating look at Canadian history for the present time, in a text that is readable, richly detailed, and generously illustrated."--BOOK JACKET

The University of Manitoba : an illustrated history by J. M Bumsted( )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and French and held by 1,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Founded in 1877, just seven years after the birth of the province itself, the University of Manitoba has been inextricably bound with the history and life of Manitoba and western Canada. Begun as a federation of small colleges whose roots lay in the Red River Settlement, over the next 100 years the U of M grew to become the home of internationally recognized teaching and scholarship. Its research achievements have changed the lives of people throughout the world, while its students have reflected the full diversity and energy of Manitoba itself." "Beginning with the university's early roots, award-winning historian J.M. Bumsted follows the many challenges and triumphs experienced by the institution and its people. He captures the spirit of U of M students and faculty with anecdotes, memorabilia, and excerpts from student newspapers and yearbooks. Richly illustrated with more than 200 photographs of people, places and events, The University of Manitoba vividly chronicles over a century in the history of western Canada's first university."--Jacket

St. John's College : faith and education in Western Canada by J. M Bumsted( )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"J. M. Bumsted presents a look at the people and events at the heart of the history of St. John's College. While relatively small in size, the college has played an important role in the educational and social life of Western Canada. Its early leaders, such as Robert Machray and Samuel Matheson, held positions of national importance in the Anglican church and lent their prestige and influence to the college. The college's changing fortunes also paralleled those of the Anglican church and Winnipeg's Anglo-Celtic elite. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, it would struggle financially as both of these institutions went through major changes. By the 1950s and 1960s, the college would re-emerge with a revitalized presence, using its traditions to meet new educational and social challenges."--Jacket

A history of the Canadian peoples by J. M Bumsted( Book )

42 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A History of the Canadian Peoples is an abridged edition of the much-lauded two-volume work, The Peoples of Canada. Like its predecessor, this book provides an overview of the economy, society, the family, and culture, as well as political and constitutional issues. Sidebars offer fascinating perspectives on the experiences of early explorers, settlers, ordinary citizens, and politicians, as well as more in-depth portraits of leading figures." "This book, a skilful condensation by the author of the two-volume version, describes the Native peoples before contact with early European visitors; exploration, settlement, and the development of British North America; the federation of the provinces of British North America in the Dominion of Canada; industrialization and urbanization; and social and political developments that conclude with a look at Canadian culture in the 1990s. The highly readable text, sidebars, suggestions for further reading, and illustrations offer an insightful look at Canadian history."--Jacket

The Great Awakening : the beginnings of Evangelical Pietism in America by J. M Bumsted( Book )

7 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the following pages the reader will find a number of representative documents illustrative of the Great Awakening in colonial America. The documents I have selected represent my own assessment of importance and interest, and the reader should keep this fact firmly in mind. In general, I have attempted to choose documents which illustrate what I consider to be the major themes of the Awakening. Because the majority of readers are probably most familiar with the revival in literary and intellectual terms -- scholarly study of it has been biased in this way -- I have consciously emphasized an institutional and social context and employed readings taken to a large extent from sources other than the sermons of those contemporaries so commonly associated with the event. I have provided only minimal editorial comment, attempting to indicate in brief introductions why I included a given document and where it fits into the larger picture. - Preface
