The triumph of citizenship : the Japanese and Chinese in Canada, 1941-67 by Patricia Roy( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this companion volume to A White Man's Province and The Oriental Question, Patricia Roy examines the climax of antipathy to Asians in Canada: the removal of all Japanese Canadians from the B.C. coast in 1942. Their free return was not allowed until 1949. Yet the war also brought increased respect for Chinese Canadians: they were enfranchised in 1947 and the federal government softened its ban on Chinese immigration."--Jacket
The Oriental question : consolidating a white man's province, 1914-1941 by Patricia Roy( )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Oriental Question is a critical investigation of a troubling period in Canadian history. It will be of vital interest to scholars of British Columbian and Canadian history and politics and of Asian, diaspora, ethnicity, and immigration studies."--Jacket
The writing on the wall by Hilda Glynn-Ward( )

8 editions published between 1974 and 2017 in English and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With tales of a gruesome murder, a typhoid epidemic, corrupt politicians, and a Japanese invasion, The Writing on the Wall was intended to shock its readers when it was published in 1921. Thinly disguised as a novel, it is a propaganda tract exhorting white British Columbians to greater vigilance to prevent greedy politicians from selling out to the Chinese and Japanese. It was also designed to convince eastern Canada of British Columbia's need for protections against an onslaught of the 'yellow peril.'This novel is not exceptional in its extreme racism; it reiterates almost every anti-oriental cliché circulating in British Columbia at the time of its publication. While modern readers will find the story horrifying and unbelievable, it is in fact based on real incidents. Many of the views expressed were only exaggerated versions of ideas held throughout the country about non-Anglo-Saxon immigrants. The Writing on the Wall is a vivid illustration of the fear and prejudice with which immigrants were regarded in the early twentieth century

Contradictory impulses : Canada and Japan in the twentieth century by Greg Donaghy( )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canada's early participation in the Asia-Pacific region was hindered by "contradictory impulses." For over half a century, racist restrictions curtailed immigration from Japan, even as Canadian entrepreneurs, missionaries, and diplomats manoeuvred for access to the Orient. Since then, Canada's relations with Japan have changed profoundly, and the two countries' political, economic, and diplomatic interests are now more closely aligned and wrapped up in a web of reinforcing cultural and social ties. Contradictory Impulses is a comprehensive and richly documented study of the social, political, and economic interactions between Canada and Japan from the late nineteenth century until today. The chapters, written by leading scholars, provide a portrait of a nation growing into its Pacific identity and also raise pointed questions about the future of Canada's relations with Japan and the vast Pacific region. Contradictory Impulses challenges our historic understanding of Canada's place in the world. This portrait of a nation growing into its Pacific identity raises pointed questions about the future of Canada's relations with Japan and the vast Pacific region. It will appeal to scholars, policymakers, and others interested in Canada's relations with Japan and the Asia-Pacific Rim

British Columbia : land of promises by Patricia Roy( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than two centuries, people from around the world have been irresistibly drawn to British Columbia. Some have sought to make their fortunes in furs, or gold, or lumber, some have dreamt of establishing utopian communities, many others have hoped simply to find a steady job, or a piece of land to farm and raise a family on. At times BC has lived up to the most extravagant expectations. But at times it has not, and in either case the costs have often been high, especially for the region's First Nations. In British Columbia: Land of Promises Patricia E. Roy and John Herd Thompson trace the social, economic, and political history of the province through a lively narrative and a wealth of carefully annotated illustrations, including maps, paintings, photographs, and cartoons."--Jacket

Boundless optimism : Richard McBride's British Columbia by Patricia Roy( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

McBride built a reputation as a charismatic and optimistic leader who was dedicated to a vision of a modern, industrialized, wealthy province. A product of his time, McBride firmly opposed Asian immigration and often promoted industrial development at the expense of First Nations interests. But he also had great forward vision: he introduced party lines to stabilize the BC legislature; he vigorously supported provincial causes in Ottawa; and, above all, he encouraged the building of railways in many regions of the province. Boundless Optimism puts McBride's political career into historical context, chronicling his passions, his many accomplishments, the downsides of his optimism, and his role in making British Columbia the province it is today."--Pub. desc
