Civilizing Difference, Constituting CommunityBook - 2005
Generations of intellectuals have debated Canada's nationalquestion. Rather than join the debate, MulticulturalNationalism challenges its logic. The national question isself-defeating: attempts to constitute a Canadian political communitygenerate polarizing and depoliticizing deliberations. Gerald Kernermanengages with leading political theorists and analyzes policy,constitutional, and media documents in order to examine proposals forminority rights, multicultural citizenship, asymmetrical federalism,multinationalism, and group-based representation. Even as othercountries consider pursuing similar paths, Kernerman cautions againstusing Canada as a model since these proposals are themselvesmanifestations of nationalist contestation.
