Summary
Canada's leading writers, scholars, and public intellectuals peer into the country's past and future in the provocative essay collection published in the 150th year since Confederation. Reflections of Canada--intelligent, passionate, provocative--is a book with opinions as diverse as Canada. Leading thinkers take a stand on some of the most pressing issues facing Canada as it turns 150. Reflections of Canada inspires the reader to form her own opinions on subjects as big and thorny as health and aging, technological revolution, arts and culture, climate change and resource use, Aboriginal reconciliation, immigration and multiculturalism. The contributions are as diverse as their subjects: George Elliott Clarke has contributed an original poem; renowned political scientist Max Cameron an essay on democratic reform; and UBC Museum of Anthropology director Anthony Shelton a strongly worded opinion piece about the inequitable funding of arts institutions in this country. The written pieces are accompanied by provocative photographs selected from a national photo competition. Each piece explores how our understanding of critical issues has changed over the past 150 years, and includes a call to action for how we should grapple with them over the coming decades. A book of lively, respectful debate, Reflections of Canada reaffirms the place for public discussion of major societal questions
