Reviews

"Making a Global City is a good read that comes at an important time…Vipond persuasively shows how Canadians of all stripes have come together over decades to adapt, adjust, integrate and challenge diversity in meaningful and peaceful ways. It is a history that gives hope for the future. "

- Melanie Adrian

"Vipond writes with sophistication, appreciation, and affection of all that a neighbourhood public school is called upon to do…The result is a most thoughtful, engaging school history – full of empirical, analytical, and theoretical insight into how a school should be in a diverse, divided city and world. "

- Myer Siemiatycki

‘This is an eminently readable and stimulating contribution to the literature on citizenship, as well as to the history of schooling in Canada… The book, with its solidly grounded historical base, adds greatly to that literature. ’

- W.P.J. Miller

‘This highly accessible sociological study serves as a thoughtful meditation on the economic, social, political, and cultural changes experienced in Canada over the past century, as reflected in the fascinating history of a landmark downtown Toronto public school. ’
