About the Book

'Race' and Ethnicity in Canada: A Critical Introduction, Second Edition, provides students with a comprehensive look at the major approaches and explanations to the key concepts in this field of study. Through their exploration of the central issues that affect Canadians today - immigration, multiculturalism, assimilation, racism, and Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal relations - the authors argue that race is not a biologically real category, but rather, a socially constructed label used to describe and explain certain kinds of human difference. The text questions whether there are patterns of race and ethnic relations that are truly unique to Canada, and puts Canada into a wider global context. Fully updated and revised, 'Race' and Ethnicity in Canada offers students an in-depth and well-rounded introduction to the fascinating study of race and ethnic relations in Canada.

Readership : 'Race' and Ethnicity in Canada: A Critical Introduction, Second Edition, is a core text for second- and third-year race and ethnic relations courses offered out of sociology departments at the college and university levels.
