Location Matters: Education and Employment Inequalities in Northern and Rural Canada.
Authors: David Zarifa, Cathlene Hillier, and Darcy Hango
Editors: Monica Hwang, Edward Grabb, and Jeffrey G. Reitz
Written and edited with students in mind, Social Inequality in Canada brings together twenty-five articles by experts to explore the many dimensions of social disadvantage and injustice that exist in this country today. The text begins with a thorough examination of structural inequality issues, focussing on the nature of class divisions and patterns of inequality developing from a range of social justice factors, including ethnicity, gender, disability, age, and sexuality. It then moves on to address the wide-ranging impact that social inequality can have on people’s experiences, outlooks, and behaviours. Fully updated with recent research in the field, this new edition also includes seven new chapters, making this text both a current and comprehensive overview of social inequality today. Together, the articles in this volume show that while some improvements have occurred in the recent past, many patterns of inequality are stubbornly resistant to change. Readers who would prefer a more egalitarian Canada will find reasons for both optimism and pessimism in the original research presented.
