Canada's sacrifices and contributions to the South African and First World Wars led to an increased sense of nationhood and to international recognition, but at great cost. The South African War was a relatively small military expedition, but it marked an important decision to send Canadian forces to support allies overseas. In the First World War, Canadians fought on the ground, in the air and at sea in some of the most costly and well-known battles: Second Ypres, the Somme, Vimy, Passchendaele and the Hundred Days campaign. More than 620,000 Canadians served. On the home front, women entered the workforce, patriotic organizations supported soldiers overseas and the introduction of conscription severely damaged Canadian unity. By showcasing artifacts, images, posters and art, this souvenir catalogue explores the many ways in which these two overseas wars forever changed Canada.

In this original study of the Portuguese Empire in the East, the Estado da India, George Souza looks in detail at the activities of Macao. His aim is to enquire into the nature of Portuguese society in China and the South China Sea and explain why the political and economic activities of the Portuguese crown did not inhibit the growth of local entrepreneurial trade. He also examines the nature of Portuguese maritime trade in Asia and analyses the focal role of Macao as an adjunct to the Canton market. The operations of Portuguese private merchants, the so-called 'country traders', are described and tellingly assessed in the wider context of the economic development of China and Southeast Asia in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

The Country and the City Revisited

Between 1550 and 1850, the great age of mercantilism, the English people remade themselves from a disparate group of individuals and localities divided by feudal loyalties, dialects and even languages, into an imperial power. Examining literature, art and social life, and returning to ground first explored by Raymond Williams in his seminal work, The Country and the City Revisited traces this transformation. It shows that what Williams figured as an urban-rural dichotomy can now be more satisfactorily grasped as a permeable boundary. While the movement of sugar, tobacco and tea became ever more deeply interfused with the movement of people, through migration and the slave trade, these commodities initiated new conceptions of space, time and identity. Spanning the traditional periods of the Renaissance and Romanticism, this collection of essays offers exciting interdisciplinary perspectives on central issues of early modern English history.
