"The overarching theme of this volume is that Canada's Aboriginal population has reached a critical stage of social demographic development, from a situation in the past characterized by delayed modernization, extreme socioeconomic deficit, and minimal control over their demography, to a present point of social, political, economic, and demographic ascendancy." -from the Preface

Experts from around the world review and extend the research on Aboriginal Peoples in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the circumpolar North, mapping recent changes in their demography, health, and sociology and comparing their conditions with that of Aboriginal Peoples in other countries. Contributors point to policies and research needed to meet the challenges Aboriginal Peoples are likely to face in the 21st century. This substantial volume will prove indispensable and timely to researchers, policy analysts, students, and teachers of social demography and Native Studies.
