Canadian Migration Patterns from Britain and North America
The character of Canada has always been defined by the successive waves of immigrants that have peopled its vastness, beginning with the six thousand French immigrants who came to settle New France in the latter half of the seventeenth century, and continuing through the present day. Migration and adaptation to a new country have also been prominent themes in Canadian literature, detailed in the works of such authors as Susanna Moodie and Robert Service. In this collection of essays, nineteen Canadianists take a new look at immigration and migration, and how it has affected the development of the country. Drawn from a number of papers presented at the 1998 conference on migration hosted by the Centre of Canadian Studies at the University of Edinburgh, the essays address various aspects of migration in Canada. They range from topics in the eighteenth century to the 1990s, and cover a range of disciplines including geography, economics, sociology, literature, and music. All the essays demonstrate how important immigration and ties to other parts of the world are to Canadians and to the Canadian identity, and how migration is a key issue in Canada's social, economic, political, and cultural life. By addressing aspects of the migration experience – from refugee policy to migration songs – the contributors to this collection have added greater depth and clarity to our understanding of the Canadian identity.

Canada and the British Empire
Canada and the British Empire traces the evolution of Canada, placing it within the wider context of British imperial history. Beginning with a broad chronological narrative, the volume surveys the country's history from the foundation of the first British bases in Canada in the early seventeenth century, until the patriation of the Canadian constitution in 1982. Historians approach the subject thematically, analysing subjects such as British migration to Canada, the role played by gender in the construction of imperial identities, and the economic relationship between Canada and Britain. Other important chapters examine the history of Newfoundland, the history and legacy of imperial law, and the attitudes of French Canadians and Canada's aboriginal peoples to the imperial relationship. The overall focus of the book is on emphasising the part that Canada played in the British Empire, and on understanding the Canadian response towards imperialism. With contributions from leading scholars in the field, it is essential reading for anyone interested either in the history of Canada or in the history of the British Empire.
