Penguin's new Allen Lane Canada imprint starts with history

National Post reports on the launch of a new history of Canada series, edited by Robert Bothwell and Margaret McMillan and published in a new imprint of Penguin Canada called Allen Lane Canada.  I'm doing one of the books in this series myself, but that one won't be along for a while.

(Have you noticed that arts and culture coverage in the NP is better than in the Globe, while the political opinions are only slightly more antediluvian. Yeah, me too.)

Allen Lane invented the Penguin paperback series in Britain in the 1930s. Penguin, initially only the label for the paperbacks, has now swallowed the whole company.
