In this exciting new addition to Oxford's acclaimed Themes in Canadian Sociology series, author James S. Frideres examines the ways in which colonization and government action - and inaction - have impacted First Nations peoples in Canada over the last three centuries. Unlike most undergraduate textbooks in this area, which tend to focus on all three Aboriginal groups in Canada, First Nations in the Twenty-First Century is a concise yet comprehensive text that focuses exclusively on First Nations peoples. Covering such crucial topics as trauma, health and well-being, language, law, and politics, this important and innovative text is an indispensable core or supplemental resource for undergraduate courses that focus on First Nations peoples.

"A substantial leap forward in the field...Excellent organization of complex information goes a long way...to clarify the paradoxical, dishonest, and contradictory policy frameworks shaping First Nations peoples' experiences across time and space."--Mary Ellen Donnan, Professor of Sociology and Anthropology, Bishop's University
"[Frideres] has provided excellent detail allowing a first time reader the opportunity to grasp these events. Rather than simply taking a chronological approach, the author has taken a thematic approach which allows for compartmentalization of key themes. This allows instructors to discuss main themes in class based on readings that do not have to be understood in chronological order...The narrative is accurate and brings a number of interpretations to the reader's attention."--Rob Nestor, Lecturer, University of Regina
