Canadas Native people have inhabited this land since the Ice Age and were already accomplished traders artisans farmers and marine hunters when Europeans rst reached their shores. Contact between Natives and European explorers and settlers initially presented an unprecedented period of growth and opportunity. But the two vastly different cultures soon clashed. Arthur Ray charts the history of Canadas Native people from rst con- tact to current land claims. The result is a fascinating chronicle that spans 12000 years and culminates in the headlines of today. In the preface to this new edition Ray elaborates on the increasing effectiveness of Indigenous peoples and their leaders in bringing demands for justice to centre stage. He discusses recent court decisions the nal report of the Truth and Reconcilia- tion Commission of Canada and the hope for change following promises made by the new Trudeau government. provides the general reader with a useful introduction to many aspects of Aboriginal Canadas history The many well-chosen illustrations comple- ment the text superbly. The Globe and Mail Arthur J. Ray is professor emeritus of history at the University of British Columbia and the author of Aboriginal Rights Claims and the Making and Remaking of History and Telling It to the Judge Taking Native History to Court. In January 1941 the hulking twenty-one-thousand-ton troopship Edmund B. Alexander docked in St Johns Harbour carrying a thousand American sol- diers sent to join the thousands of Canadian troops protecting Newfound- land against attack by Germany. France had fallen Great Britain was ghting for its survival and Newfoundland then a dominion of Britain was North Americas rst line of defence. Although the German invasion never came St Johns found itself occupied by both Allied Canadian and American forces. Occupied St Johns reveals the profound impact that the war years had on the citys inhabitants thrown into a conict where the home front was also the war front. Weaving together interviews with residents who lived through the upheaval as well as archival material this collection reconstructs the memories of people coping with extraordinary circumstances. Lavishly illustrated and engagingly written Occupied St Johns is a re- markable look at the effects of the Second World War on the city opening another chapter in Newfoundlands fascinating history. This is an impressive work and a gorgeous one. From its striking cover to its abundance of illustrations it is crisply designed and visually engaging. From its categorical table of contents to its calibrated notes and footnotes it is a trove of information.
