Painting the Maple explores the critical interplay of race and gender in shaping Canadian culture, history, politics and health care. These interdisciplinary essays draw on feminist, postcolonial, and critical theory in a wide-ranging discussion that encompasses both high and popular forms of culture, the deliberation of policy and its execution, and social movements as well as individual authors and texts. The contributors establish connections among discourses of race, gender, and nation-building that have conditioned the formation of Canada for more than one hundred years. At times provocative, Painting the Maple illuminates the challenges that lie ahead for all Canadians who aspire to create a better future in a reimagined nation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Such a diverse range of essays is likely to be of most interest to practitioners of interdisciplinarity ... Others will find the theoretical discussions of the construction of Canada as an exclusive nation, characterized by racial and gender discrimination at worst and cultural insensitivity at best, instructive for any branch of Canadian studies. -- Judith Fingard * Atlantis *
A collaborative tour de force from a coterie of scholars at the University of British Columbia ... The debates and issues raised by Painting the Maple deserve the attention of all interested Canadians and should not be restricted to academic readers alone. -- Valerie J. Korinek * The Canadian Historical Review *
