La description

This third edition of Profiles of Canada combines depth, breadth, sophistication, and readability to offer the student a comprehensive introduction to Canadian society. The editors have brought together contributions from a wide range of disciplines to create a fascinating overview of the various facets of Canadian life and culture.

The text includes aspects of the Canadian experience not usually found in introductory texts. The inclusion of a short story by Alistair MacLeod, for example, is an innovative departure from the academic writing of the other chapters, and provides the student of Canadian society with a sample of the finest in contemporary Canadian writing.

Editors Dr. Kenneth Pryke and Dr. Walter Soderlund have carried out a successful update of the earlier editions of this well-respected text. Aspects of Canada explored in this new edition include regionalism, the North, demography, ethnicity, culture, and sport.
