The regenerators : social criticism in late Victorian English Canada by Ramsay Cook( )

17 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in English and held by 1,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A crisis of faith confronted many Canadian Protestants in the late nineteenth century. With their religious beliefs challenged by the new biological sciences and historical criticism of the Bible, they turned from personal salvation to the dire social problems of the industrial age. The Regenerators explores the nature of social criticism in this era and its complex ties to the religious thinking of the day, showing how the path blazed by nineteenth-century religious liberals led not to the Kingdom of God on earth, but, ironically, to the secular city."--
Watching Quebec : selected essays by Ramsay Cook( )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 1,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ramsay Cook is one of Canada's most perceptive and lucid historians. The classic essays in this volume, written over the last forty years, analyse social and cultural change among French-speaking Canadians and its effects on the evolution of nationalism in Quebec." "Evolving from a passionate desire to survive as a distinct culture in the nineteenth and early twentieth century to a more confident and expansive ideology since World War II, nationalism in Quebec has provoked intense debates within the province and in the rest of Canada over language, provincial powers, and the very meaning of the term "nation" in the contemporary world. In essays that address both historical and contemporary issues, Watching Quebec examines the ideas of francophone individuals and groups, looks at their institutions and movements, and clarifies the complex relationship between French- and English-speaking Canadians.

The politics of John W. Dafoe and the Free Press by Ramsay Cook( )

22 editions published between 1926 and 2017 in English and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John W. Dafoe was a dominant figure in western Canadian political history during the first half of the twentieth century. As editor of the Winnipeg Free Press from 1901 to 1944, he gained an international reputation for his perceptive analysis of the issues facing Canada and the world. He was at the centre of almost every major political development of his time: he advised prime ministers, was deeply involved in organizing the Progressive party, and was a member of the crucial Rowell-Sirois Commission on federal-provincial relations. His influence was enormous, and at the time of his death he was widely regarded as the nation's most distinguished editor. This book is a study at close quarters of Dafoe, the man of politics. It focuses on the Dafoe who read and studied and the Dafoe who observed men and events; on Dafoe in his centre of operation and at the Free Press and Dafoe moving watchfully about the country and abroad when critical decisions were in the making; on the ideas confided in letters to friends and the ideas delivered in public speeches; on contributions made to conferences and commissions and advice given to political figures. The book is not intended as a complete biography of Dafoe in all his aspects, but it is even less an abstract treatise in the field of political theory. It is the biography of a political mind. The impression is of a mind recalled to its full vigour, for no prejudgments have been made about it and no restraints upon it. Ramsay Cook treats his subject with candour, but also with understanding and a sense of humour. He has ordered his material with extraordinary skill, so that his book is enjoyable reading as well as a valuable source of information about a distinguished Canadian and a momentous period in Canadian history

The woman suffrage movement in Canada [extract] by Catherine Lyle Cleverdon( )

4 editions published between 1974 and 2017 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of woman suffrage in Canada has been largely ignored in the standard accounts of our past and has attracted little attention-at least until recently-from research students. The major exception is Catherine Cleverdon's study. Written nearly a quarter of a century ago, it remains the authoritative, indeed the only complete account of the suffragist struggle which took place here. Women won the franchise through the efforts of small groups across the country who devoted their energies to the cause over a considerable number of years. The author tells the spirited story of their encounters with the recalcitrant legislatures of the dominion and the provinces, of their frustrations and disappointments at the indifference with which their struggles often were met, and of the final culmination of their efforts in victory-in Quebec, only in 1940. With this work Catherine Cleverdon charted a pioneer course through an almost completely unexplored field, marshalling skilfully a massive bulk of source material to great effect, adding lively details and engaging anecdotes to make the account both informative and vivid. She deals with the struggle for the suffrage in each province and on the federal level. Women received the suffrage first in the prairie provinces where there existed a feeling that they as much as men had opened up the land and that therefore, the vote, if they wanted it, was their due. Only in Quebec, the book records, did the struggle, bitterly contested, come closest to developing into a real fight following the British and US pattern. This volume contains indispensable background materials for the story of women's social and political growth. Its republication is testimony to the new climate of interest in the study of the history of women in Canada

The teeth of time : remembering Pierre Elliott Trudeau by Ramsay Cook( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Teeth of Time is the story of the relationship between one of Canada's pre-eminent historians and the still-captivating figure of the country's fifteenth prime minister. Pierre Elliott Trudeau, the most intellectual of Canadian prime ministers, turned to Ramsay Cook, a speech-writer during the 1968 election campaign, for his trusted views. Cook's revealing memoir traces how public affairs and the central political themes of Trudeau's reign - nationalism, federalism, and constitutional reform - continued to drive their relationship after Trudeau's resignation in 1984"--Jacket
