Randall White holds a doctorate in political science and is an independent researcher and consultant on economic development issues for Ontario. Formerly he was a senior economist for the Ontario Ministry of Treasury and Economics.
If Ontario is the land that is ours to discover then surely Randall White has written a book of discovery. Ontario 1610-1985 fulfills the need for a comprehensive text that chronicles the history of one of the founding provinces of Confederation, a province that has provided a vital legacy for Canada.
Ontario 1610-1985 is for the general reader and an invaluable text for teachers and students of Canadian and Ontario history. Randall white concentrates his account of Ontario’s past and present on the political and economic events that have shaped the province. The book is supplemented with annotated photographs and illustrations that highlight the social and cultural context.
"Without doubt the outstanding merit of the book is its organic unity."
