Riel and the Rebellion PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Riel and the Rebellion free pdf When, in 1983, the first edition of "Riel and the Rebellion" was published, the scholarly controversy concerning Thomas Flanagan's interpretation of the Rebellion of 1885 escalated to one of national significance. One of the few books that presents a countervailing view of the traditional interpretation of the Rebellion, Flanagan contends that the Metis were, to some extent, responsible for the alienation of their lands, and that Riel cannot continue to represent an omnipotent force of destruction in the history of Western Canada. After over 15 years, issues such as land claims and Native rights have infact moved beyond the level of academic debate- Flanagan's work remains timely and the additions to the book in this new edition reflect the continued currency of its content. In the second edition, the author addresses the change to the law and the literature concerning a number of issues, including: the cultural mythology surrounding Riel, the recent campaign to pardon Riel (with some discusson of a theory that contends that Riel's trial was unfair), the Manitoba lands question, and new primary research conducted by Flanagan concerning Metis land claims at Saint Laurent. Undoubtedly, the controversy will continue to surround this unique work and to garner attention because of its relevance to many larger contemporary political debates concerning Native rights and land claims.
