Stand on Guard for Whom?
A People's History of the Canadian Military
We Stand on Guard for Whom? is the first book to present a history of the Canadian military from the perspective of its victims. Originating as a British force that brutally dispossessed First Nations, the Canadian Forces regularly quelled labour unrest in the decades after Confederation. However, as this book shows, Canadian militarism has always been contested. This book reveals the hidden militarism in Canadian life and reminds us that the first step to contest it is to recognize its pervasiveness and power.
