From 1894 until his retirement in 1927 he was professor of history and head of the department. He promoted history as a distinct discipline, and Canadian history as a legitimate field of study. In 1896-97 he founded the Review of Historical Publications Relating to Canada (since 1920 the CANADIAN HISTORICAL REVIEW) and in 1905 he co-founded the CHAMPLAIN SOCIETY. He wrote numerous monographs and texts on Canadian history, the best being A Canadian Manor and Its Seigneurs (1908). Formal in habit and something of an anglophile in taste, Wrong influenced a generation of students.
Reviews - What do customers think about The Conquest of New France?
Refreshingly different May 1, 2001
This short work is an excellent introduction to the struggle for the existence of the French colony of New France. Beginning in 1672, with the governorship of the Comte de Frontenac, the author traces the various struggles through to the final surrender of Montreal in 1760. Along the way there is a small detour, examining the exploration of the west, spearheaded by men looking for a path through to the Pacific.
This book was originally published in 1918, and it shows. Throughout, the author routinely refers to the Indians as "savages," which is a little shocking to those used to more modern books. However, all other peoples in this drama (French, British, Canadians and Americans) are disparaged at one time or another, so a little tolerance of the author will be required to read this book.
That said, though, the book is well written and highly informative. The book's tone is far from the dry and academic, which characterizes many older history books. What I liked about this book is that it examines the struggles from the French point of view, which is refreshingly different that of the British. So, if you want to learn about the struggles with French Canada, from another perspective, then this book is for you.
