Product description

From the Back Cover

Canadian History For Dummies, 2nd edition takes readers on a wild ride through Canadian history, from its first nations heritage right through to Paul Martin′s shaky minority government. Previous sections have been revised with up–to–the–minute scholarship, and a new chapter covers the eventful half–decade since the publication of the first edition. In his trademark irreverent style, Will Ferguson celebrates Canada′s double–gold in hockey at the 2002 Olympics, investigates Jean Chrétien′s decision not to participate in the war in Iraq, and dissects the sponsorship scandal.

About the Author

Will Ferguson has lived and worked in every region of Canada, from the Okanagan Valley of BC to the farmlands of rural Quebec, from Saskatoon to southern Ontario, from Manitoba to PEI.
He is the author of several bestselling books on Canadian history and culture, including the Leacock Medal for Humour–winning Beauty Tips from Moose Jaw (a travel memoir), and Bastards & Boneheads (a study in Canadian leadership styles). With his brother Ian, he wrote the wildly successful humour book How to Be a Canadian, which sold over 145,000 copies and won the Libris Award for Non–Fiction Book of the Year.
Will′s debut novel Happiness (originally published under the title Generica) won the Leacock Medal for Humour and the Canadian Authors Association Award for Fiction. It has been published in 31 countries and 24 languages around the world.
