Aboriginal Peoples in Canada, with an extensive reorganizatoin and revision for its ninth edition, continues to provide a current and comprehensive introduction to Native Studies. Approaching events from the perspective of both the majority and the minority, it traces the history and evolution of Aboriginal—Non-Aboriginal relations over time. You will come away from the text with an understanding of Aboriginal rights within the context of the Canadian Constitution and Canadian society as a whole. Analytical in nature, Aboriginal Peoples in Canada supplies a critical interpretation of the events that have shaped Aboriginal-Euro-Canadian relations and illustrates how these relations have in turn formed the structure of Canadian society.
