Canada has undergone many changes in the decades following World War II. From post-war prosperity and grrowing nationalism to corporate downsizing and globalization, the events of this six-decade period have been some of the most radical in the country's history.

Author Alvin Finkel looks at the people, forces, and events that have shaped post-war Canada. All the major themes in our history are discussed: the evolution of the welfare state, our economic domination by the United States, our halcyon days as a Middle Power, the Quiet Revolution, the First Nations' quest for autonomy, the flowering of English-Canadian nationalism, the rise of western alienation, the women's movement, Quebec nationalism, neo-conservatism, and globalization.

Extensively illustrated, Our Lives: Canada after 1945 is the first book for general readers to look in detail at Canada from the mid-forties through the mid-nineties. Successfully marrying the new social history with politics and economics, it is more than simply informative, provoking readers into a reconsideration of the key events that have shaped the country.

ALVIN FINKEL is a professor of history at Athabasca University. He is the author of Business and Social Reform in the Thirties, The Social Credit Phenomenon in Alberta, and A History of Canadian Peoples.
