Sites of Power: A Concise History of Ontario focuses on the disparate groups of people who inhabited a space now called Ontario for the past 11,000 or so years. Baskerville underscores how studying power relations can bring to light the contingent and variable history of a people in a given geographic region. The author's premise that power begets resistance indicates the two-sided nature of the historical record. Sites of Power: A Concise History of Ontario is as much about the visions of Ontario held by those who resisted structures of power as it is about the more official visions held by those in power. Students will be encouraged to understand the complexity of historical interpretation by way of the author's treatment of historical debate.
