Description

The politics of difference, mired in the violence of colonial history, are a dominant force in the socio-economic development of contemporary society as it strikes a balance between the acceptance of new cultures, and the absorption and gentrification of them. In this collection of essays edited by the University of Guelph's Smaro Kambourelli, Roy Miki--poet, scholar, and member of the Order of Canada--investigates the shifting currents of citizenship, globalization, and cultural practices facing Asian Canadians today through the connections of place and identity that have been forged through our developing national literature.
