Fall books in Canadian History

What are we going to be reading this winter? Browsing the University of Toronto Press catalogue, I notice among the titles of Canadian historical interest:

Stephen Clarkson's Does North America Exist? (post NAFTA, post-9/11 consideration of what used to be called continentalism)

Dorothy Harley Eber's Encounters on the Passage: Inuit Meet the Explorers (indigenous oral history on those guys who left the written accounts)

J.I. Little's Loyalties in Conflict (the complexities of border life in Little's early 19th century Eastern Townships).

More to come from the fall lists....
