Grounded in recent research, this book successfully identifies key issues bearing on the current social challenges Aboriginal people face in Canada. -- Nathalie Piquemal, Faculty of Education, University of Manitoba * Great Plains Research, Spring 2005 * The authors of Aboriginal Conditions are unapologetically quantitative in their approach, and, it must be said, sophisticatedly and successfully so. Ultimately, I think this book represents an important addition to any serious discussions regarding Aboriginal issues in Canada and I highly recommend its adoption in any number of courses with Aboriginal issues content. -- Chris Anderson, School of Native Studies, University of Edmonton * The American Review of Canadian Studies, Spring 2005 *
