Cultures, Communities, and Conflict
Histories of Canadian Universities and War
Edited by: Paul Stortz and E. Lisa Panayotidis
'The study of Canada's universities in wartime is a difficult historical problem best suited to the work of a collective of historians. Until now we have been without a reliable and well-argued book on this topic. Cultures, Communities, and Conflict provides that guide. An important contribution to the fields of Canadian social and intellectual history, it will be immediately helpful to students, but it will also intrigue readers outside the academy who want to understand the full impact on our society of the universities and of the great conflicts of the past century' - William Bruneau, Faculty of Education, University of British Columbia.
'Cultures, Communities, and Conflict is a diverse collection of fascinating studies of Canadian universities at war throughout the twentieth century. Representing a cross-Canada view of the impact of international conflicts on such institutions, this volume is a significant, unique, and welcome addition to the history of higher education in Canada'. - Elizabeth Smyth, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto.
