“Drawing from and speaking to many intellectual constituencies in this remarkably wide-ranging work, Macfarlane deepens our understanding of twentieth-century Canadian history even as he broadens the scope of Canadian environmental historical scholarship and leaves his readers to ponder the illusory boundaries between technologies and environments.”

– from the Foreword by Graeme Wynn
Daniel Macfarlane is a visiting scholar in the School of Canadian Studies at Carleton University. In 2013, he was the Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in Canadian Studies at Michigan State University.
