During World War II thousands of Japanese immigrants were incarcerated in prison camps, yet in the 1980s Asian immigrants outnumbered Europeans 6:1. What caused this turn-around in immigration policy? How did one of the most racist nations in the world become one of the most welcoming? In 1867 Canada was established as a political nation with two general ethnic cultures, yet more than 191 ethnic groups currently reside there. Canadas Diverse Peoples gives students of Canadian history, sociology, anthropology, and history a unique opportunity to understand the tensions, conflicts, and cooperation surrounding Canadas indigenous and immigrant populations.

In this comprehensive reference, Historian J.M. Bumsted takes readers on a chronological tour of Canadas ethnic history from aboriginal society and the French and English founding cultures to the Alien Menace of the first world war and the influx of refugees after the second.- From the botched storming of the ship Kamagata Maru and its forced return to India to Quebecs separatism, Bumsted explores one of the more important themes in Canadian historical development.
