Applied Anthropology in Canada: Understanding Aboriginal Issues is an impassioned call for a revitalized anthropology by University of Guelph professor of Sociology and Anthropology, Edward Hedican. In this second edition, Hedican includes commentary about the Royal Commission, Bill-C31, and most importantly the Ipperwash Inquiry of 2007. Hedican argues that anthropology must be more directly attuned to the practical problems faced by First Nations in Canada and anthropologists must be involved in land claims and public policy issues.
