By looking at issues of ethnicity and class, this book assesses whether ethnic origin makes a difference to the education and economic well being of Canadians. In order to ascertain this answer, the author suggests that it is first necessary to re-interpret the meaning of ethnic and cultural origin in Canada. The book begins with a presentation of some of the myths and realities of inequality, then proceeds to an overview and analysis of ethnicity and race. The remainder of the book is concerned with the role of ethnicity in access to education, income, and social equality. The conclusion reveals that ethnicity and social class operate together as the main detriments to social inequality in Canada today.
