Overview

Recent demographic projections based on Statistics Canada data indicate that persons designated as belonging to a visible minority group will comprise 20 per cent of the Canadian population by 2017. In Canada's major cities, the proportion of persons classified as visible minority is expected to exceed 50 per cent. What is race, and how should racism be studied sociologically? What differences exist in patterns of structural incorporation within and among ethno-racial groups in Canada? What factors influence upward social mobility? Are Canadian institutions capable of meeting the needs of the country's increasingly diverse ethno-racial population? These are some of the questions that this volume addresses.

This collection of original articles identifies future research directions for racism in Canada based on important changes taking place in the country. It also offers the basis for a more complete understanding of racism and social change in Canada.

Academics please note that this is a title classified as having a restricted allocation of complimentary copies. Restricted titles remain available to adopters and to academics very likely to adopt in the coming semester. When adoption possibilities are less strong and/or further in the future, academics are requested to purchase the title, with the proviso that UTP Higher Education will happily refund the purchase price if the book is indeed adopted.

What People Are Saying

Minelle Mahtani

This is the book that many of us in the field of race scholarship have been waiting for.... an unprecedented collection that profoundly deepens our understanding of the complexity of race in our multicultural nation today.... This book adds new depth to the study of racism in Canada and will, no doubt, inform the creation of more sophisticated anti-racist and social justice policy initiatives.

Minelle Mahtani, University of Toronto, Scarborough

Carol Tator

Race & Racism in 21st-Century Canada provides a space for a number of scholars, who draw upon very diverse theoretical models and research strategies, to explore the constructs of race, racialization, and racism through a variety of lenses. Collectively, the clash of frameworks and methodologies demonstrate that no one approach to the subject matter is adequate to expose how these contested notions function in a democratic liberal society. It is important to continue this dialogue.
