Like its predecessor (Multi-Ethnic Canada: Identities and Inequalities, 1996), Race and Ethnicity: Finding Identities and Equalities is a comprehensive survey of race and ethnic relations in Canada . Combining insights from many disciplines besides sociology--including anthropology,psychology, economics, politics, and history--it begins with an introductory review of theoretical concepts before moving on to examine empirical demographic data, ethnic identity and solidarity, socioeconomic stratification, and finally, racism and human rights. Throughout, the focus is on issuesin the Canadian experience, past and present--from the expulsion of the Acadians and the execution of Louis Riel to Quebec nationalism, the wartime internment of Japanese-Canadians, First Nations land claims, and the discrimination faced by visible minorities.
Leo Driedger is a Professor Emeritus, University of Manitoba.
