City on Edge: A Rebellious Century of Vancouver Protests, Riots, and Strikes features photographs from the collection of The Vancouver Sun and The Province which capture moments in history when Vancouverites showed up, stepped up, and made some noise—or exploded in anger— about a wide range of issues. Published by Greystone Books, the book includes a foreword by noted Vancouver author Charles Demers.

“…the book is literally chock full of outstanding and artful images, ready to inspire, startle, and provoke serious thought.”   Doug Sarti, The Georgia Straight

“This gorgeously illustrated history of Vancouver’s signature moments of social unrest is a provocative reminder of the city’s unique dynamism.”   Publisher’s Weekly

 In stark contrast to Vancouver’s international image of a laid-back urban paradise, Kate Bird expertly shows us that our citizens are actually wound up tighter than Joey Shithead’s guitar strings.”   Grant Lawrence, The Westender

A companion multimedia photography exhibition City on Edge: A Century of Vancouver Activism is on view at the Museum of Vancouver until February 18, 2018.
