Showcasing a variety of methodological approaches, Contesting Bodies and Nation in Canadian History includes essays on many themes that engage with the larger historical relationship between the body and nation: medicine and health, fashion and consumer culture, citizenship and work, and more.

The volume is capped off with a critical introductory chapter by the editors on the history of bodies and the development of the body as a category of analysis.
