Book Description

May 26 2012
The now notorious Maclean’s article “'Too Asian?'” from the magazine’s 2010 campus issue has sparked a national furor about race in Canadian higher education. Since the founding of the federal policy of multiculturalism, Canadians have prided themselves on their ability to integrate diversity into a broader multicultural environment, but the often heated discussions about race point to fissures in this national project. This collection uses the controversy about the Maclean’s article as a flashpoint to interrogate issues about race and representation on Canadian campuses and what it means for students and learning across the country.

Product Description


PRAISE FOR "Too Asian?"

"An intelligent, scholarly, and sanity-restoring response to Maclean's Magazine's "Too Asian?"—one of the shabbiest and laziest pieces in the history of Canadian magazine journalism."
Heather Mallick, staff columnist, Toronto Star

"This book is fundamental reading about the perception of race, identity, and belonging in Canada. It astutely connects Maclean's "Too Asian?" article to the broader historical context of racism and the place of visible minorities in our higher education institutions. It invites readers to probe into our past to understand and unlearn the current patterns of discrimination and exclusion."
Ayman Yassini, executive director, Canadian Race Relations Foundation

"Maclean's Magazine's "Too Asian?"article provided the stimulus for a powerful series of articles written by young scholars that focus on the dynamics of race, racialization, and Indigeneity in post-secondary institutions. [Going far beyond the "Too Asian?" of the title . . . this highly stimulating and informative book is a must read for all students and professionals who want to broaden their understanding of critical race analysis."
Dr. Frances Henry, F.R.S.C., professor emerita, York University, and co-author of Racism in the Canadian University

"Apologists of institutional racism and discrimination prevent Canada from reaping the benefits that all people bring to this country. Congratulations to the editors and writers of this important book for dealing with the complex nature of racism, power, and privilege in a dispassionate manner. The inability of people to learn from the past makes it mandatory for us to engage in relentless dialogue coupled with political activism."
Ken Noma, president, National Association of Japanese Canadians
