About the Author

Kurt Korneski teaches in the Department of History at Memorial University of Newfoundland.


This is a remarkable little book. Although coming in at just slightly over 200 pages - including endnotes - it manages to pack a brief and theoretically sophisticated precis of Canadian and Winnipeg history, four de facto biographies, and much new analysis of seemingly well-known subjects into a coherent and eminently readable whole.... All in all, this is a book that makes a contribution to several fields at once. It fits well with a host of new works that study settler colonialism, certainly fits well with many of the newer approaches to British Imperial history and is a valuable addition to the historiography of both western Canada and Winnipeg. It is well worth the read. * Labour/Le Travail: Journal Of Canadian Labour Studies *
[A] valuable addition to this growing literature.... [A]n insightful look at the intellectual and social history of an urban outpost of empire.... [T]his book successfully combines the tools of social and intellectual history to reframe the city of Winnipeg as part of an expanding Greater British settler society. By reinterpreting Anglo-Canadian ideas of race, nationalism, and social reform in both local and global contexts, Korneski illuminates the extent to which the problems of urban industrial development - in a word, modernity - were the products of, and conceived within, Britain's imperial world-system. One need not embrace its framework of a liberal capitalist order to learn from this valuable study of the Western Canadian corner of the British World. * Britain and the World *
