Mapping the contradictions and ambiguities in the cultural politics of Canadian identity, The House of Difference opens up new understandings of the operations of tolerance and Western liberalism in a supposedly post-colonial era. Combining an analysis of the construction of national identity in both past and present-day public culture, with interviews with white Canadians, The House of Difference explores how ideas of racial and cultural difference are articulated in colonial and national projects, and in the subjectivities of people who consider themselves mainstream, or simply Canadian-Canadians.

Eva Mackey is Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at McMaster University.Review:
Mackey explores how power and cultural dominance in Canada function through more liberal, inclusionary and pluralistic formulations... her contribution lies in the use of her fieldwork to ground her arguments...Overall, her book presents a significant challenge to the liberal idea that issues of power can be ameliorated simply though the inclusion of difference and a non-homogenizing notion of culture.
