Aboriginal Populations

Social, Demographic, and Epidemiological Perspectives

"The overarching theme of this volume is that Canada's Aboriginal population has reached a critical stage of transition, from a situation in the past characterized by delayed modernization, extreme socio-economic deficit, and minimal control over their demography, to a point of social, political, economic, and demographic ascendancy." -from the Preface Experts from around the world review and extend the research on Indigenous Peoples in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the Circumpolar North, mapping recent changes in their demography, health, and sociology and comparing their conditions with that of Indigenous Peoples in other countries. Contributors point to policies and research needed to meet the challenges Indigenous Peoples are likely to face in the 21st century. This substantial volume will prove indispensable and timely to researchers, policy analysts, students, and teachers of social demography and Indigenous Studies.

Reviews

"Aboriginal Populations examines the striking demographics of First Nations, Inuit and Métis. Its scope is encyclopedic and compelling; its findings are often surprising; its commentaries are eloquent. Editors Frank Trovato and Anatole Romaniuk capture a community in transition after centuries of despair..." [Full review at http://bit.ly/1viEFAl]—Holly Doan, Blacklock's Reporter

" [The editors] have brought forward a collection of papers of very high quality, many of which engage the reader in terms of some of the most difficult conceptual and methodological issues to characterize research of this nature. "—Don Kerr, The International Indigenous Policy Journal
