Colonialism and Racism in Canada situates current, important readings within a practical pedagogical apparatus and structure. Each chapter follows the same pedagogical structure: a brief Introduction, a list of Learning Objectives, A Scholarly Article/Reading, Critical Questions, Key Concepts, Terms, a brief Bibliography, and suggested Websites for further investigation. This is the first book in the market to situate the study of Race and Racism within a context of Colonialism: a system of social, legal, and cultural structures that can impact and, in some cases, impede the progress of racial minorities in this country.
