Essays in the History of Canadian Law : Quebec and the Canadas, Hardback Book

Essays in the History of Canadian Law : Quebec and the Canadas Hardback

Edited by G. Blaine Baker, Donald Fyson

Part of the Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History series

Description

The essays in this volume deal with the legal history of the Province of Quebec, Upper and Lower Canada, and the Province of Canada between the British conquest of 1759 and confederation of the British North America colonies in 1867.

The backbone of the modern Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec, this geographic area was unified politically for more than half of the period under consideration.

As such, four of the papers are set in the geographic cradle of modern Quebec, four treat nineteenth-century Ontario, and the remaining four deal with the St.

Lawrence and Great Lakes watershed as a whole. The authors come from disciplines as diverse as history, socio-legal studies, women's studies, and law.

The majority make substantial use of second-language sources in their essays, which shade into intellectual history, social and family history, regulatory history, and political history.
