Rise to Greatness: The History of Canada From the Vikings to the Present


Rise to Greatness: The History of Canada From the Vikings to the Present


Masterful, ambitious, and groundbreaking, this is a major new history of our country by one of our most respected thinkers and historians — a book every Canadian should own.
     From the acclaimed biographer and historian Conrad Black comes the definitive history of Canada — a revealing, groundbreaking account of the people and events that shaped a nation.
     Spanning 874 to 2014, and beginning from Canada’s first inhabitants and the early explorers, this masterful history challenges our perception of our history and Canada’s role in the world. From Champlain to Carleton, Baldwin and Lafontaine, to MacDonald, Laurier, and King, Canada’s role in peace and war, to Quebec’s quest for autonomy, Black takes on sweeping themes and vividly recounts the story of Canada’s development from colony to dominion to country. Black persuasively reveals that while many would argue that Canada was perhaps never predestined for greatness, the opposite is in fact true: the emergence of a magnificent country, against all odds, was a remarkable achievement. Brilliantly conceived, this major new reexamination of our country’s history is a riveting tour de force by one of the best writers writing today.

    This review is from: Rise to Greatness: The History of Canada From the Vikings to the Present (Hardcover)
    This is a huge, infinitely detailed volume, that is probably about Black as much as it is about Canada. It is less a story and more a huge info trove put in a progressive sequencial order for scholarly purposes. That said, the research seems exhausting, details are fascinating, and his “word play” is always entertaining. As a Canadian living in the USA for a long time, any revisit of Canada’s history is appreciated, especially Her relationship with this country.
    The book can be mind numbing just trying to carry the story through the detail and side bars. And I put it down, only to pick it up and read longer. It gets 4 stars because the “story” could have been told in 500 pages rather then over 1000, but it is a great story worth telling.

    As one who grew up on the U.S. Canadian border and frequently traveled across it while my age was still in single digits, I was delighted to find a book that told me so much about varied experiences of the multi-ethnic Canadians. Rise to Greatness is written well enough to justify its 1,000 pages of text. I read it to the end and was rewarded more and more as I did so.

    It is very informative and there is a lot of details…. You have to love history ….which I do. But it is a long read. Conrad knows his history and he loves to write. Thank you.
