The book is divided into two sections. In the first section, authors review the current literature on the topic, using it to develop practical indicators that can be used to measure each group's relative success in integration. The second section addresses the context of various forms of integration, providing detailed information on Canada's integration efforts. Together the two sections present broad overviews of issues related to integration.
