New History from McGill-Queen's

    • Scott Rutherford, Canada's Other Red Scare     Reacting to indigenous activism in the global sixties.
    • Francois Furstenburg and Olliver Hubert, Enlarging the Quebec Act     More than just a date in early Canadian constitutional history, they argue.

This link to the McGill Queen's University Press website, subsection Browse Books, subsection History, subsection Canada, may be the longest URL I have ever encountered.  And it leads to many more books than I have listed here.
