Patricia E. Roy is the winner of the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award, Canadian Historical Association. A White Man's Province examines how British Columbians changed their attitudes towards Asian immigrants from one of toleration in colonial times to vigorous hostility by the turn of the century and describes how politicians responded to popular cries to halt Asian immigration and restrict Asian activities in the province.
Patricia E. Roy is a professor in the Department of History at the University of Victoria. She is the author of two other books on Asian-Canadian immigration and discrimination, The Oriental Question and The Triumph of Citizenship.
