PortraitPatricia E. Roy is a professor in the Department of History, University of Victoria. The Oriental Question follows her 1989 groundbreaking work, A White Man's Province, which covered the period 1858-1914. A third volume will take the story from the outbreak of the Pacific War in 1941 to the removal, in 1967, of the last barriers to "first class citizenship" for Canadians of Chinese and Japanese origin.
