James Lorimer & Company, 1991 - History - 214 pages
Published in 1991, Our Canada examines the history, present state and future prospects of the social democratic movement and the NDP in Canada.

The book opens with a look at the roots of the NDP in the social justice movements of the early twentieth century with contributions from such figures as J. S. Woodsworth, Tommy Douglas, and Stanley Knowles. The growth of the NDP is traced in each province and territory. The relationship between the NDP and labour is examined, and essays by Audrey McLaughlin, Shirley Carr and Ed Broadbent consider the party's future.

With contributions from some of the nation's boldest thinkers, Our Canada is a useful primer of progressive politics in Canada.
