Unsettling Settler Societies brings together a distinguished cast of contributors to explore these relations in both material and discursive terms. They look at the relation between indigenous and settler/immigrant populations, focusing in particular on women's conditions and politics. The book examines how the process of development of settler societies, and the positions of indigenous and migrant peoples.


Being rather broad in scope and time, the volume invites other scholars to build upon the efforts of the various contributors to integrate qualitative and quantitative methods. Without doubt the wealth of references will stimulate ideas. - Development and Change
