Schryer’s principal argument is that ethnic teams are as a lot smooth “myths” as they're fundamental parts of a socially developed truth. targeting the massive cohort of immigrants from the Netherlands and the previous Dutch East Indies who arrived in Canada among 1947 and 1960, Schryer indicates how the Dutch, regardless of a lack of ethnic identification and a excessive point of linguistic assimilation, replicated many facets in their place of origin. whereas illustrating and illuminating the range between immigrants sharing a typical nationwide beginning, Schryer retains sight of what's universal between them. In doing so, he indicates how deeply ingrained behavior have been converted in a Canadian context, leading to either continuities and discontinuities. the result's a variegated snapshot reflecting a multidimensional truth.
