Unequal Relations provides comprehensive coverage of the important issues and topics for courses on race and ethnicity including racism, multiculturalism and diversity.  It gives students an introduction to the politics of race, ethnic, and Aboriginal relations as fundamentally unequal relations within a dynamic Canada, that is both rapidly changing and increasingly diverse, yet more uncertain and confused. Three themes prevail in addressing this dynamic: the social, the political, and the national.

From the Back Cover:

Canada is a society of paradox. On one side, Canada remains a remarkably open society with a commitment to justice, inclusiveness, and tolerance. On the other side, racial politics and ethnic conflicts continue to perplex or provoke.

 

Debates revolve around the politics of difference: How much difference? What kind? Who says so and why? How much unity must be imposed for Canadian society to survive? Should differences because of race, ethnicity, or aboriginality be ignored in defining who gets what? Or should these differences be taken into account for full and equal participation?

 

No one can claim to have all the answers, but Unequal Relations challenges students to critically engage with diversity politics and the politics of difference–not by examining the issues and debates in the abstract, but by “painting oneself into the picture”.

 

Now in it’s Sixth Edition Unequal Relations has engaged students in thinking about Race, Ethnicity, and Aboriginal Relations for nearly two decades. Augie Fleras is a professor of sociology at the University of Waterloo.
