Editorial Reviews

"This book has many merits: it reads well, presents up-to-date research on a range of topics, and inspires students to think critically about racism in Canadian society. . . . In my view, this is the best textbook aimed at undergraduate students in courses on the sociology of 'race' andethnicity." -Helmut-Harry Loewen, University of Winnipeg
