SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc This book is a good-news story about Canadian multiculturalism. It argues that immigration and the social diversity that flows from it are working well in many respects much better than one might expect from watching the evening news or reading the anxious predictions of many of our intellectuals. It also defends the claim that Canada is good at managing diversity, arguing that this claim is neither vacuous national boosterism nor a quaint, deluded idea lifted from some 1970s government brochure.
