What People are Saying About This

Walter DeKeseredy

This book speaks to me on several levels. It is part of a growing body of scholarship that seriously challenges the popular notions of Canada as 'a kinder, gentler nation' or as a 'peaceable kingdom.' Discourses of Denial compels Canadian social scientists to move beyond simply viewing the United States as the 'root of all evil' and to examine more carefully the sexist, racist, and classist nature of their own society.
