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


"Our Lives will greatly interest general readers as well as the academic community. Finkel's excellent work should certainly be considered by teachers as a text on post-war Canada."
John MacFarlane, Canadian Social Studies
"In a series of lucid chapters he divides the story into three parts that add up to a meaningful narrative on the making of contemporary Canada... it [provokes readers into a reconsideration of the key events that have shaped the country."
David Frank, Saint John Telegraph-Journal
"History prof Finkel examines the watershed events and trends that have influenced Canada's history in the past 50 years - among them the evolution of the welfare state, U.S. domination, Quebec's Quiet Revolution and the women's movement."
Britt Hagarty, Vancouver Sun
