Appropriate for race and ethnic relations or ethnic studies courses found in most universities and colleges across Canada. Considered to be the market leader in courses on racism and ethnicity, Unequal Relations is highly regarded by adopters for its extensive and comprehensive coverage and its balanced treatment of the topic. In this fourth edition, the content has been refined and a test item file has been added. Fleras has included a new chapter on gender, without sacrificing the gender dimension in each of the chapters. The material in this text has been updated to keep it fresh and the concepts of multiculturalism, multicultural citizenship, and human rights continue to be reassessed in light of national and international developments. Each chapter opens with a "Debate Box" that sets the tone for the chapter and concludes with "Debate Revisited" box that draws inferences from the preceding debate. Many of the case studies have been revamped to incorporate a debate format. The "pro" and "con" approach is intended to engage readers in grappling with the issues that reflect different life experiences.show more
