Aboriginal Peoples in Canada, with an extensive reorganizatoin and revision for its ninth edition, continues to provide a current and comprehensive introduction to Native Studies. Approaching events from the perspective of both the majority and the minority, it traces the history and evolution of Aboriginal—Non-Aboriginal relations over time.
