This month at Canada's History

Canada's History [memo to brain: for Beaver, say Canada's History] for August-September includes my profile of Elizabeth Abbott and her recent book A History of Marriage. The issue's lead articles feature Canadian pirates -- the historical "arrrh, matey" kind, not the filesharers and university administrators and suchlike.

On the Canada's History website, they run a thingee called History Idol: historians and others talking about someone of interest in Canadian history. As part of that, Mark Reid got me talking about George Brown here, and while I would not have chosen the word "idol" maybe, it's a nice little bit.
