As a professor in the Department of Social Work at the University of Victoria, Armitage wrote Comparing the Policy of Assimilation: Australia, Canada, New Zealand (UBC Press, 1995 $24.95). Which examines the assimilation policies enforced upon the aboriginal peoples of Australia, Canada, and New Zealand by the British Empire which reveal themselves as expressions of racism and colonialism. Through examining the after-affects of the Select Committee on Aborigines of the House of Commons in Great Britain in 1837, this book provides comprehensive and comparative data between the three countries and their conduct of these policies, along with an analysis of their origins.
