Reviews

"Diversity, Justice, and Community pulls no punches as it lays bare the reality that oppression, marginalization, and injustice relating to race, gender, and sexual minorities are not confined to history. Thoughtfully written, and drawing on Canadian examples, this book is a useful resource for educators, students, practitioners, and their allies as they work towards a more just and equitable society." - Michael Brandt, Criminology Professor, Northwest Community College

"This text gives students concise yet comprehensive coverage of significant issues in the area of diversity and justice in Canada. This should be a must-read text for all students in the justice field." - Eva Silden, Chair of Criminal Justice, Camosun College
