According to reliable forecasts, by the year 2016, visible minorities will comprise 20 per cent of the Canadian population; the proportion of people of colour to whites is already higher than that in some metropolitan centres. At a time when governments across Canada are seeking information and guidance on issues of Race and Racism, this balanced and thoroughly up-to-date collection of essays is a vital contribution to the field. Race and Racism brings together critical contributions from the academic and government sectors that analyse the nature and extent of racism in Canada. The broad spectrum of social scientific approaches represented here - sociology, cultural anthropology, demography, and psychology - and an equal emphasis on quantitative and qualitative methods make this study a particularly rich source for scholars and policy makers alike. race (including some treatment of measurement questions), economic and social factors pertaining to race, racism, and discrimination (as represented in opinion and popular perception, measured in various ways), and the dimensions of minority coping in major urban areas. Race and Racism fills in many wavering lines on our cultural landscape and provides an important perspective on social policy for the twenty-first century. Leo Driedger is professor of sociology at the University of Manitoba. Shiva S. Halli is professor of sociology at the University of Manitiba.
