Acknowledgments

In conducting the research reported in this book, I have received assistance, advice, encouragement, and support from a number of individuals and organizations, which I would like to acknowledge here. The research was supported by a grant from the Canadian Ethnic Studies Program of the Multiculturalism Branch of Heritage Canada, which was indispensable in launching the project. At the University of Toronto, both the Centre for Industrial Relations and the Department of Sociology provided important research support throughout the project. At the University of California at Los Angeles, my research was greatly advanced by the help I received as a visiting scholar for a year in the Department of Sociology. I also benefited from the professional hospitality of Elizabeth Stephenson and Martin Pawlocki of the Social Science Data Archive at UCLA's Institute for Social Science Research. At the University of Sydney, I enjoyed a period as visiting scholar in the Multicultural Centre, and at Australian National University, Roger Jones and Gina Roach of ANU's Social Sciences Data Archive provided much help in gaining access to Australian census data.

Raymond Breton, Ivan Light, and Suzanne Model provided extremely valuable substantive suggestions, and detailed and thoughtful commentary on a draft manuscript. Their help contributed greatly to the progress of the project. Support and advice also was received from a number of others including Ian Burnley, Stephen Castles, Jock Collins, Mariah Evans, Lois Foster, Jürgen Friedrichs, Ron Gillis, Donna Gray, Morley Gunderson, Christine Inglis, F. Lancaster Jones, James Jupp, Melvin Oliver, Vilma Ortiz, Frank Reid, Donald Trieman, Jonathan Turner, and Warwick Wilson. Research assistance throughout the project was provided by Richard Bernard, whose professional knowledge of the U.S. census microdata files was of considerable help particularly in the early stages, and also by Elaine Chan, Fatima Lee, Clay Mosher, and Stephanie Potter.
