Change and Impact
Sally F. Zerker, (ed.), Change & Impact, Essays in Canadian Social Sciences, 1994
This is an amalgam of original articles that confront serious and important issues for Canada and Canadians. Here the works of scholars from many countries, including Canada of course, reflect on Canadian politics and public policy, the Canadian economy, environmental questions and social issues. This book benefits from the multiplication of Canadian Studies university programs throughout the world, from which its international scholarly character undoubtedly stems.
The title of the book indicates the nature of the current Canadian condition, where movement and unfolding transformation is manifest everywhere. Hence, discussions of significant issues, such as those included in this volume, inevitably treat the element of change, sources of those changes, as well as analyses of the impact of subsequent developments. Change and Impact is a book for those schooled in the field of Canadian Studies as well as the newcomer to the discipline.
