About the Author

Robert C. Vipond is a professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto.


'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.'

- Publishers Weekly Online Review August 2017

'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 - Canadian Historical Review vol 99:01:2018

"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 - Canadian Journal of Political Science Vol 51:2 2018

"Vipond writes with sophistication, appreciation, and affection of all that a neighbourhood public school is called upon to do."

- Myer Siemiatycki - Historical Studies in Education
