Explorations in Ethnic Studies
This familiar and useful journal for those interested in cross-national comparative ethnic studies between Canada and the United States provides in this special issue six essays on seven important but hitherto overlooked ethnic minority leaders. Predictably, two of the figures are British (Arthur Putee and Sam Scarlett) and none are native, Métis, French or female; the other five being Finn (Matti Kurikka and A. B. Makela), Norwegian (Ole Hjelt), Ukranian (Ukrainian) (Pavlo Krat) and Croatian (Tomo Cacié). Each essay is in English with convenient bilingual headnote synopses. The essays are well researched, amply footnoted and tolerably readable for specialist literature. Each employs life-and-times biography of an ethnic radical as entry to analysis of both ethnicity and radicalism in Europe and Canada. Each essay creates a striking vignette informed by both traditional and recent Canadian and European scholarship and impressive work in manuscripts and official records in North America and abroad.
