Apart from the Lucas edition of the Report, mentioned in the Introduction, by far the most important book on Durham and his Report is CHESTER W. NEW, Lord Durham (Oxford, 1929), and the reader is referred to its comprehensive bibliography for items published before 1929. The Canadian portion of this volume, entitled Lord Durham's Mission to Canada, is available in the Carleton Library ( Toronto, 1963). Two works especially, which describe political conditions in Upper Canada, should be mentioned: AILEEN DUNHAM, Political Unrest in Upper Canada, 1815-36 ( London, 1927; also the Carleton Library, Toronto, 1963) and W. STEWART WALLACE, The Family Compact ( Toronto, 1915). E. M. WRONG, Charles Buller and Responsible Government ( Oxford, 1926) is a useful study of the colonial reformer who was Durham's principal political adviser. Attention should also be drawn to the Report of the Public Archives, 1923 ( Ottawa, 1924), which provides a calendar of the Durham Papers at the Public Archives of Canada, and reprints several documents and dispatches.
Among items published since the appearance of New's biography which bear on the Report and the Canadian background are the following: WILLIAM SMITH, Political Leaders of Upper Canada ( Toronto, 1931); D. G. CREIGHTON, The Commercial Empire of the St. Lawrence, 1760-1850 ( New York and Toronto, 1937; reprinted as The Empire of the St. Lawrence Toronto, 1956); The Canadian Historical Review, XX ( June, 1939), containing articles by LORD TWEEDSMUIR, CHESTER NEW , GEORGE W. BROWN, D. C. HARVEY, and CHESTER MARTIN, commemorating the centenary of the Report; L'ABBE ARTHUR MAHEUX , "Durham et la Nationalité Canadienne-Française", Report of the Canadian Historical Association, 1943, pp. 19-24; H. T. MANNING, The Revolt of French Canada, 1800-1835 ( Toronto, 1962); and G. M. CRAIG, Upper Canada: The Formative Years, 1784-1841 ( Toronto, 1963).
