chr revisiting the great land rush and the making of the modern world


The most recent Canadian Historical Review 93, 2 (2012) contains the Garneau Roundtable on John C. Weaver’s influential book, The Great Land Rush and the Making of the Modern World, 1650-1900 (2003).  

For those indebted to Weaver for his incredible comparative history of settler colonialism, it is certainly worth checking out the views of Bill Parenteau, David Hackett Fischer, E. J. Errington, Ann McGrath, and John C. Weaver himself, almost ten years after the book’s publication.
