The journal is seeking articles for a special issue slated for the summer of 2016.Irving Abella and Harold Troper’s book None is Too Many caused a sensation when it was published in 1983 and profoundly shook Canada’s national narrative.

  • The reception and impact of None is Too Many as well as its place within Canadian historiography;
  • The impact of scholarship on subsequent Canadian policies in Canada, especially migration and refugee policies.
