This original work examines the growth and development of Canadian society within a socio-historical framework.

The authors investigate historical, economic, political, cultural, and ideological perspectives through three key relationships: Quebec and Canada, Canada and the United States, and Canada and the Aboriginal Nations. The book: Examines society as a set of relationships that emerge gradually over time as fostered, encouraged, and mediated by a set of institutions, in particular, the state and markets- Explores society as the product of an historical narrative -- a movie, rather than a snapshot - which enlists many literary devices, including myths, metaphors, symbols, heroes, villains, and tragic figures- Identifies the complex relationship between individuals and society.

Students are asked to consider to what extent individuals create society, and conversely, to what extent society creates individuals.
