Canadian Society in the Twenty-First Century: A Historical Sociological Approach

By Trevor W. Harrison & John W. Friesen

This text examines the growth and development of Canadian society within a socio-historical framework. Following the progress of our society into the 21st century, Harrison investigates historical, economic, political, cultural and ideological perspectives through 3 key relationships: Quebec and Canada, Canada and the United States, and Canada and the Aboriginal Nations. An introductory chapter presents central sociological theories of structural-functionalism, symbolic interactionism, conflict and feminism as it pertains to the text's central themes of nation, state and society.
