Product description

The Confederation Generation

This book takes a light - hearted look at some of these Confederation Canadians. Quotes and pictures from the time are used to explore the ideals, the rhetoric, the issues, and the interests of Canadians a hundred years or so ago. You will find familiar subjects in these pages - such topical issues as organized sport, urban development, the role of women in the workforce, and the growth of nationalism and 'Canadian Culture'. The picture that emerges is not comprehensive; it reflects by and large the major concerns of the 'prosperous' and 'respectable' especially in English Canada - people whose viewpoints were well articulated and widely disseminated by press and pulpit. These Confederation canadians have left us a legacy of dreams and worries that we still share.

The author Mary Fallis Jones is a graduate in history and museology from the University of Toronto (B.A., M.Mus.) .
Before joining the Royal Ontario Musuem in 1976, she worked as a researcher at the Toronto Board of Education. Mary Jones has taught in Toronto, Greece, and japan. She is now School Services Co-ordinator in the Department of Extension Services at the Royal Ontario Musuem. Her interests are Canadian and Oriental history, and the role of musuems in education.

Book has worn covers but inside pages are clean and securely bound.First edition ,printed in 1978.
