Halifax Warden of the North (Updated Edition)


The gold standard of Halifax history. This book is full of astounding things I never knew, even being born and raised in Halifax. Originally written in 1948 by celebrated Haligonian and Order of Canada recipient, Thomas Radall.

     First published in 1948, Halifax Warden of the North has remained the best-known and most influential chronicle of Halifax since it first hit the shelves. In this updated version of the Governor General’s Award-winning history of Halifax, celebrated journalist Stephen Kimber picks up where Thomas Raddall left off, adding three new chapters that cover the city’s history from the mid-1960s to the present day, including the destruction of Africville, the arrival of the Buddhists in the 1970s and 80s, the amalgamation of HRM in the 1990s, and the storms of the most recent decade.

Already the definitive history of Halifax, this newly updated edition of Raddall’s fascinating historical portrait will be an essential addition to all local historians’ libraries.
