Review

Canada led the Western world into the multicultural mire in 1988, ironically under a Conservative government. Salim Mansur s deep and scintillating analysis should help the country out of this illiberal and unfortunate policy. --Daniel Pipes, PhD, president of the Middle East Forum and Taube distinguished fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University

A brilliant academic and thought-provoking journalist, Salim Mansur explains what liberal democracy really means, and why the protection of individual rights that lies at its heart is under constant assault from the group think mentality of state-imposed multiculturalism. --Lorrie Goldstein, Senior Associate Editor, Toronto Sun

Salim Mansur presents a devastating critique of multiculturalism that is unusual in two big ways. The first is that he is surprisingly sympathetic with many of the intentions behind it, and charitable even when he cannot be sympathetic. The second is the way he goes beyond the conventions and platitudes of a policy wonk survey, with sharp, organizing insights of the kind we might expect from a fine historian, or even novelist. He does not merely analyse. He has lived the implications of multicultural policy, and he has looked people who have experienced real dislocation, in the eye. He has thought and felt his way into radically other points of view. There is a sincerity and genuineness in his account that holds one s attention, and makes one care. --David Warren, Ottawa Citizen

I have just finished reading this outstanding book written clearly by a person who knows what he's talking about. While I had never heard of the author here in Oz, I found the book by way of a cross reference. And I'm very pleased I did. The author articulates both the history and politics of multiculturalism esp as it has impacted Canada, in an easy to read yet scholarly book. It gave answers to the many questions of concern that older people in particular might have. It also provided a solid overview of the topic for anyone wishing to speak up about this ill conceived and disastrous social experiment.
I am a much wiser man thanks to Salim Mansur.

I picked up this book determined to be intellectually honest and not allow my personal bias to throw up feeling that sometimes pass for reason. The facts presented and the logic used are not for the faint of heart. If you exalt your feelings higher than truth just move along. If you worship at the alter of liberal orthodoxy this might be too much for you.
But if you are a true intellectual, one willing to alter course based on facts and logic regardless of peer pressure and emotional compulsion, then I encourage you to take this up. See what we have done to ourselves . Help us change our direction.
If we don't change our course we will surely end up where we are headed.

A good enjoyable read, prescient in light of the current repudiation of multiculturalism in many countries. Particularly insightful, as USA moves from the melting pot to mosaic in assimilating citizens of varying ethnicity.

To save the world, all one needs to do is think [L Peikoff]

The rejection of counter-revolutionary, regressive, conservative, statist -- enough adjectives? -- ideologies is a pressing concern in the "West".
Whether it is like the tribalism of "might makes right", which fall under the generalization of collectivist arrogance, or like the pseudo-religions of the Middle East, all have the glorification of violence and the rejection of the individual mind as a common thread.
And one notices their excepting the Legislature/Judiciary/Bureaucracy or the priesthood, of course. As Islam, e.g., has no rigorous clergy, any devout devotee can declare a fatwa, and attach a stigma to dissenters, not unlike being considered a reactionary element in the People's Revolution for asserting one's property rights.
Who needs this manifesto?
Any one who thinks human rights trump theft, murder, enslavement .. and anyone who thinks.
