Struggle for the Border by Hutchison, Bruce
Struggle for the Border
by Hutchison, Bruce
 
The boundary between Canada and the United States is famously described as the longest undefended border in the world. But it was not always so. In The Struggle for the Border, renowned journalist and popular historian Bruce Hutchison tells the little-known story of how that border was established. It is a story of frontier war, explorers' expeditions, Fenian raids, the burning of Washington, and of political threats and counterthreats. Hutchison carries the amazing chronicle up to the days just after the Second World War and the continental military and economic unification that laid the foundations of contemporary Canada.

The Wynford edition of The Struggle for the Border includes a new Introduction by Vaughn Palmer, one of Canada's foremost political journalists and a winner of the Bruce Hutchison Award. Palmer's Introduction puts both the book and Hutchison's career in historical context for today's readers.
