The Dawn of Canada's Century

by Gordon Darroch

Sir Wilfrid Laurier famously claimed that the twentieth century would be Canada's century and, indeed, its opening decade witnessed remarkable territorial, demographic, and social transformations. Yet the lives of those who lived and laboured to fashion these changes remain largely hidden from historical view. The Dawn of Canada's Century presents close and systematic interpretations of everyday lives based on the first national sample of the 1911 census. Written by many of Canada's leading historical researchers, The Dawn of Canada's Century demonstrates the wide-ranging and revealing social histories made possible by the new Canadian Century Research Infrastructure, an innovative database of national samples of decennial census microdata, from 1911 through 1951. This revealing collection sheds new light on topics including identity and language, the socio-demography of aboriginal populations, national labour market dynamics, earnings distributions, social mobility, gender and immigration experiences, and the technologies of census taking. Situating early twentieth-century Canada within international historical population studies, these essays provide new ways to understand individuals' lives and connect them to larger structural changes.

Dawn of Fear

by Susan Fenimore Cooper

"You aren't really old enough to be frightened," said Derek's father, and it was true. The German planes that flew over daily on their way to bomb London fascinated Derek and his friends, Peter and Geoff, and they always cheered the RAF planes that went to intercept them, but even when a near miss closed their school for a few days, their interest in the bomb crater was detached and scientific. Far more engrossing was the camp they were building at the bottom of an old ditch dug for a housing project that had never been finished. It was to be their secret meeting place, and they would keep their most treasured possessions there. Gradually, however, things changed. As the night raids grew more severe, Derek began to worry about the camp, and he became increasingly aware of his parents' fear. Yet it was not bombs that destroyed the camp in the end, but a tough gang from the next street. Enlisting the aid of an older neighbor, Derek and Peter and Geoff engaged in a furious battle of vengeance with the gang. Then, for the first time, they saw violent grown-up hatred, and then, too, they began to know the meaning of fear. Susan Cooper, author of the popular Over Sea, Under Stone, brings the sensitivity and insight of a highly gifted writer to this story of a boy's gradual awakening to an awareness of the adult world. It is a suspenseful, moving, and memorable book.

The Dawn of Genius

by Alan Butler

The modern world looks back towards Ancient Greece for the start of its philosophy, for the origins of its science and even for the foundations of its excursion into democracy. But is this either correct or fair? Was there something long, long before the City States of Greece flirted with geometry, astronomy and inclusive politics from which Greece itself developed, merely as a pale reflection? Alan Butler has put together his most exhaustive and yet most compelling presentation of how we came to be what we are today. The Dawn Genius explores the genius that was the Minoan civilization and shows how accounts of the fabled Atlantis were actually memories of a worldwide catastrophe that occurred around 1600 BC. The Dawn of Genius puts back into the place the missing pieces of the puzzle that is Europe prior to a massive watershed in population and culture that took place after 2000 BC. A cataclysmic volcanic eruption in the Eastern Mediterranean destroyed an almost totally forgotten infrastructure that encompassed an entire continent, and opened Europe to an unparalleled invasion of much less sophisticated people from the East. The book recreates the culture and religion and scientific knowledge that was shattered in an instant and which plunged the world into a dark age from which it has taken over 3,000 years to emerge. This is probably the most comprehensive explanation of mysteries from a truly ancient world that has ever been written. Those interested in exploring the genuine origins of the modern world are certain to be enthralled.
