    Identity and Colonialism in 21st Century Canada

    By Emma Battell Lowman and Adam J. Barker     October 2015

    “Both callous and empathetic approaches to indigenous dysfunction have always focused on the Indian ‘problem.’ And yet, settler colonialism as a mode of domination is fundamentally constituted by the unequal relationship between indigenous and non-indigenous collectives. This book finally focuses on the real ‘problem.’ It was hidden in plain sight all along: the settler.” — Lorenzo Veracini, associate professor of history and politics, Swinburne University of Technology, author of Settler Colonialism
