Author Tags: Early B.C., Law

As an SFU History professor, Tina Loo wrote the first comprehensive legal history of B.C. prior to confederation, Making Law, Order and Authority in British Columbia, 1821-1871. At the outset, control of the territory was exercised by First Nations and the Hudson's Bay Company. By 1871 the British Colonial government was firmly in place. Loo has also examined law and moral regulation in Canada from 1867 to 1939 in Making Good (University of Toronto Press 1997 $12.95), co-authored with Carolyn Strange. She is also the author of True Crime, True North: The Golden Age of Canadian Pulp Magazines (Vancouver: Raincoast Books, 2004). In 2006, Loo wrote States of Nature: Conserving Canada's Wildlife in the Twentieth Century (UBC Press).
