1. Overview

Today, as the 20th century draws to an end, Canada is a transcontinental nation whose interests and representatives span the face of the globe and extend into every sphere of human endeavour. But this was not always so. When the four colonies of British North America united to create Canada on July 1, 1867, the new country's future was by no means secure. Canada was a small country, with unsettled borders, vast empty spaces, and a large powerful neighbour, the United States.

Confronting these challenges was difficult for the young country. Though Canada was independent in domestic matters, Britain retained control over its foreign policy. Over the next fifty or so years, Canada's leaders and its people quietly but steadily took control of their foreign policy and their destiny. The first four of the eight modules that make up Canada and the World: A History, tell the story of that struggle until the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939. By then, Canada was in full control of its international relations, encouraging its politicians and diplomats and soldiers to help shape a new, more hopeful, international society. In the final four units ofCanada and the World: A History we learn how Canadians worked to create the United Nations, to develop new instruments to resolve conflict, and to carve out a distinctive role for their country in the councils of the world.
