"This collection of essays is an appropriate monument to an outstanding scholar."
Canadian Social Studies
"Dundurn has provided a clean text and clear, suitable photographs ... Careless at Work will be valued for the convenience of having these essays readily at hand and for the content of both papers and forewords."
"... a worthy celebration of the significant, challenging contributions that Maurice Careless has made to our understanding of Canada's past."
Globe and Mail
"This book not only illuminates Canadian history but also reveals a scholar's mind at work, as, during his long career, he developed an understanding of historical processes and of individuals."
"The collection is a useful one, and not just as a historiographic artifact. Many of the pieces here are still used regularly in undergraduate classrooms and graduate seminars. Putting them together in one place both makes them more accessible and, by juxtaposing them, allows the curious student to comprehend both the debate and the outstanding problems more readily."
