1 BRITISH NORTH AMERICA ON THE EVE OF CONFEDERATION
1.
The preamble to the British North America Act (1867) is given in Joseph Pope (ed.), Confederation, p. 249 and Browne, p. 302.
2.
These issues are also discussed in Ged Martin, "'An Imperial Idea and Its Friends: Canadian Confederation and the British, 1837-1864'" in Gordon Martel (ed.), Studies in British Imperial History: Essays in Honour of A.P. Thornton (Basingstoke, 1986) pp. 49-94; and Ged Martin , "'Launching Canadian Confederation: Means to Ends'", Historical Journal, xxvii ( 1984) pp. 575-602. The present study also draws upon G. W. Martin, 'Britain and the Future of British North America, 1837-1867' (PhD thesis, Cambridge, 1972).

Various studies discuss the idea of Confederation in the decades before 1867. Older works which remain useful are R. G. Trotter, Canadian Federation: Its Origins and Achievements. A Study in Nation- Building ( Toronto, 1924) and W. M. Whitelaw, The Maritimes and Canada before Confederation ( Toronto, 1934). Chester Martin, Foundations of Canadian Nationhood ( Toronto, 1955) is valuable in placing Confederation in a longer perspective, but its usefulness is reduced by the absence of any citation of sources.
