The Left in British Columbia: A History of Struggle
Ronsdale Press cordially invites you to the launch of Gordon Hak's
How did B.C. come to be called the Left Coast? Is the province really teeming with radicals, and if so, who are they and where did they come from? Drawing on extensive primary sources, labour historian Dr. Gordon Hak tackles this question head- on. The result is the first comprehensive account of the left in British Columbia from the late nineteenth century to the present, a fascinating history that includes dynamic characters and dramatic historic moments.
Dr. GorDon Hak, a history professor at Vancouver Island University, has published two books on the BC forest industry, one of which won the Canadian Historical association's annual prize for the best book on British Columbia history. He lives in Victoria with his wife Joanne.
