  1. Colonial proximities : crossracial encounters and juridical truths in British Columbia, 1871-1921

    Mawani, Renisa, 1970-
    Vancouver : UBC Press, c2009.

    Real and imagined encounters between aboriginal peoples, European colonists, Chinese migrants, and mixed-race populations produced racial anxieties that underwrote cross racial contacts in the salmon canneries, the illicit liquor trade, and the (white) slavery scare in late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century British Columbia. "Colonial Proximities" explores the legal and spatial strategies of rule deployed by Indian agents, missionaries, and legal authorities who aspired to restrict cross racial encounters. By connecting genealogies of aboriginal-European contact with those of Chinese migration, this book reveals that territorial dispossession and Chinese exclusion were never distinct projects but two conjunctive processes in the making of the settler regime. Drawing on archival documents and historical records, "Colonial Proximities" historicizes current discussions of multiculturalism and pluralism in modern settler societies by revealing how cross racial interactions in one colonial contact zone inspired juridical racial truths and forms of governance that continue to linger in contemporary racial politics. It is essential reading for students and scholars of history, anthropology, sociology, colonial/post colonial studies, and critical race and legal studies.
