Description
This outstanding collection examines the complex and disturbing history of immigration and racism in Canada. Major themes include Native/non-Native contact, migration and settlement in the nineteenth century, immigrant workers and radicalism, human rights, internment during WWII, and racism of the present day. The readings are divided into five cohesive sections:  
    • Natives and Newcomers in Early Canada
 
    • Space and Racialized Communities
 
    • Dangerous Others—Non-Citizens and the State
 
    • Gate-keeping—Enemies Without and Within
 
    • The Post-War Era—New Rights and New Racisms
  This book is destined to make its mark in History departments across the country and will also be of interest to students and researchers in Canadian Studies, Sociology, Demography, Political Science, and Geography.
