Hughes In the spirit of our bestselling Birds of British Columbia series, Birds of the Yukon Territory provides unprecedented coverage of the bird species of the Yukon. Lavishly illustrated with more than 400 colour photographs and 223 hand-drawn bird illustrations, the book presents a wealth of information on bird distribution, migration and breeding chronology, nesting behaviour, habitat use, and conservation con- cerns. Two hundred eighty-eight species of birds are documented, including 223 regular species, and 65 casual and accidental species. In com- piling this meticulously researched volume, the authors consulted over 166,000 records in a database created by the Canadian Wildlife Service, with information dating back to 1861. Sections on birds in Aboriginal culture and history, and bird names in the Yukon First Nations and Inuvialuit languages, enhance the book, as do the numerous easily interpreted charts and graphs. Destined to become a basic reference work on the avifauna of the North, Birds of the Yukon Territory is a must-have for bird enthusiasts and anyone interested in the natural history of the Yukon and the Northern regions. The editors all live in the Yukon Territory and are avid birders and members of the Yukon Bird Club. Pamela H. Sinclair, Wendy A. Nixon, and Nancy Hughes all work with the Canadian Wildlife Service in Whitehorse. Cameron D. Eckert is Conservation Biologist for the Parks and Protected Areas Branch of the Yukon Department of Renewable Resources.

Responding to a United Nations call to assist the South Korean regime, Canada deployed an 8,000-strong brigade to the peninsula to fight as part of an American-led UN force. This comprehensive account of the Canadian campaign in Korea provides the first detailed study of the training, leadership, operations, and tactics of the brigade as well as its relationship with American and Commonwealth allies. An impeccably researched analytical history, the book examines the often uneven performance of the various Canadian units and argues that the soldiers of the “Special Force” initially sent to Korea were more thorough and professional in their operations than were the army’s regular battalions, who eventually replaced them at the front. The revisionist interpretations in A War of Patrols will attract both academic and military profession- als, as well as general readers interested in a fresh look at an important part of Canada’s military past. William Johnston is Historian with the Directorate of History and Heritage, Department of National Defence, Ottawa. The Canadian War Museum and UBC Press are proud to publish this book on the 50th anniversary of the Armistice in Korea.

U B C P R E S S . C A UBC PRESS » WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/CURRENTEVENTS First Do No Harm Making Sense of Canadian Health Reform Terrence Sullivan and Patricia M. Baranek Is there a crisis in Canadian health care? While the establishment of the Canadian health care system is widely considered a triumph of citizenship, after four decades the national program is in a fragile state marked by declining public confidence. In First Do No Harm, Sullivan and Baranek provide a concise introduction to the fundamentals of health care in Canada and examine various ideas for reforming the system sensibly. Arguing that administrators and policymakers should follow Hippocrates’ dictum “first do no harm” when evaluating and reforming the Canadian health care system, the authors discuss health care financing, popular Canadian health care myths, waiting lists and emergency room overcrowding, and home- and community-based health care. This book is an invaluable invitation to Canadians to think carefully and creatively about the present and future of our health care system. “First Do No Harm is an extraordinarily readable and reliable guide to the issues at stake in the debate about reforming Canada’s health care system. Sullivan and Baranek … bring readers up to date on fact and fiction about waiting lists, ‘passive privatization,’ pharmaceutical coverage, and primary care reforms. They admirably achieve their aim of attacking the considerable misinforma- tion that travels as analysis. One need not agree with all their conclusions to celebrate their consid- erable contribution.” – Ted Marmor, Professor of Public Policy, Management, and Political Science, Yale University, and author of The Politics of Medicare 2002 120 pages, 6 x 9” figures, tables pb $14.95 ISBN 0-7748-1016-5 Current Events/Health Terrence Sullivan has been the Executive Director of Ontario’s Premier’s Council on Health Strategy; the President of the Institute for Work and Health; and is currently Vice President of CancerCare Ontario.

Poets, thinkers, philosophers, scientists, and statesmen have long celebrated our compassion towards Earth’s other beasts. Awe for the Tiger, Love for the Lamb compiles the most significant statements of sensibility to animals in the history of thought. From the myths of the ancient world to the Middle Ages to Darwin and beyond, Preece captures the most telling and most fascinat- ing accounts of humankind’s relationship to the wild world, and places them in historical context. Jung called it “an unconscious identity with animals,” while Wordsworth saw it as the “primal sympathy which having been must ever be.” Linking the diverse chords of human experience that are touched by the animal world, Preece shows that despite a historical thread of cruelty, there still remains in all humanity a constant underlying concern for other beings as an integral part of the moral community. Awe for the Tiger, Love for the Lamb is an original, superbly researched history that deepens our understanding of all living beings.

From the early days of fur and fish, to the present, when a remarkable ninety percent of our gross national product is attributable to exports and imports, Canadians have relied on international trade to bolster our economy. A Trading Nation, Michael Hart’s brilliantly crafted overview and analysis of the historical foundations of modern Cana- dian trade policy, is the first survey to address the history of Canadian commercial policy in over fifty years. This bold and original study is a tour de force, evocative of Harold Innis’s and Donald Creighton’s pioneering works in the history of the nation, and is destined to become a classic of Canadian historical, economic, and political studies. “Written by someone who has been an active trade negotiator as well as a teacher and writer on the subject (an unusual combina- tion), this first-rate volume presents all there is to know about the history, recent evolution, and future prospects of trade policy in Canada.” – CHOICE • SELECTED AS A CHOICE OUTSTANDING    ACADEMIC TITLE FOR 2002 5 F O R  M O R E  I N F O R M AT I O N  V I S I T  W W W.

Craig and Richard King NEW IN PAPERBACK! Making Native Space Colonialism, Resistance, and Reserves in British Columbia Cole Harris Cheap mechanical and satellite transmissions have made a predominantly North American culture available to a global audience. Does this mean that rock ’n’ roll, soap opera reruns, and professional wrestling will destroy Asian traditions and leave Asian nations to produce nothing but imitations of a shallow, hedonistic alien culture? Far from it! In Global Goes Local, international scholars from a variety of disciplinary perspectives examine different forms of popular culture in Asia. Covering topics from pop music in Korea to TV commercials in Malaysia, this collection shows how imported cultural forms can be invested with fresh meaning and transformed by local artists to result in new forms of assertion and resistance that also meet the needs of their particular audiences.

JANUARY 320 pages, 6 x 9” illus. pb $29.95 ISBN 0-7748-0875-6 Asian Studies/Cultural Studies This elegantly written and insightful book provides a geographical history of the reserve system in British Columbia. Cole Harris analyzes the impact of reserves on Native lives and livelihoods and considers how, in light of this, the Native land question might begin to be resolved. The account begins in the colonial office in the 1830s and then follows Native land policy – and Native resistance to it – in British Columbia from the Douglas treaties in the early 1850s to the formal transfer of reserves to the Dominion in 1938. “Cole Harris has written the definitive history of the Aboriginal struggle for recognition and justice in British Columbia.” – Neil J. Sterritt, Gitksan Nation, co-author of Tribal Boundaries in the Nass Watershed Cole Harris recently retired from the Department of Geography at the University of British Columbia.

This book is the perfect primer for anyone wishing to understand more about the economics of climate change policy – how much will the Kyoto commitment cost Canadians? What would ratification of the Accord mean to the average Canadian? The Cost of Climate Policy makes clear what Canadians can expect on a personal level from the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions – the technologies they use, the energy bills they pay – and how government policy can help to reduce long-run costs and decrease the uncertainties that frustrate our current national debate.  Anyone who wants the information necessary to make up their own mind about the Kyoto Accord will find this book indispensable.

Now, dragonfly watching is catching on as a fascinating and enjoyable pursuit. In his new book, noted entomologist Robert Cannings introduces students and outdoor enthusiasts to the world of dragonflies. He shows readers where to find these amazing insects and how to watch them in the field. The perfect book for beginners – easy to read and full of large, colourful photographs – Introducing the Dragonflies of British Colum- bia and the Yukon also provides enough detail to satisfy even the most experienced dragonfly watchers. In the introduction, Dr. Cannings outlines the natural history of dragonflies – their structure, life cycles, habitats, and behaviour. He then describes the 88 species known to live in British Columbia and the Yukon, noting habitat preferences and distribution. To make identification easy, each description has one or more colour photograph, as well as comparisons with similar species. Robert A. Cannings is Curator of Entomology at the Royal British Columbia Museum. He has studied dragonflies for more than 30 years and is the author of many popular and technical publications on these insects. » ALSO OF INTEREST Bats of British Columbia David W. Nagorsen and R.

The craft died out, however, in the nineteenth century, as copper kettles became available through trade with Europeans. By the end of the twentieth century, all that remained to attest to this ancient tradition were a few baskets in museum collections. In 1999, Suzan Marie, a Dene with a passion for the traditional arts of her people, saw a photograph of one of these baskets and initiated a project to reintroduce the lost art of spruce root basketry to small Dene communities. This book tells the story of this modern revival of a traditional skill, and of the museum collections that were essential to the process. It is richly illustrated with photographs of baskets – both those collected in the nineteenth century and those made recently by a new generation of Dene basket-makers. Also included are detailed descriptions and illustrations of the proc- esses involved in making a basket, from harvesting of spruce roots to coiling techniques. This book will be a resource for anyone interested in Dene culture and heritage. It will also serve as a practical guide to artisans wishing to make a Dene spruce root basket.

In this informed, insightful, even-handed yet unsparing biography of Zimbabwe’s first – and only – president, Stephen Chan explains and interprets Mugabe as a freedom fighter turned tyrant, an idealist whose triumph over racism and colonialism bore bitter fruit. Chan, a first-hand witness to Zimbabwe’s struggle for independence and an advisor to Zimbabwe’s early post-independence government, gives us a masterly portrait of Mugabe: his strengths and victories – and, increasingly, his tragic flaws and destructive failures. Chan’s tightly argued and rigorous narrative depicts a triumphant nationalist leader who degenerated into a petty despot consumed by hubris and self-righteousness and driven to such desperate measures as seizing white-owned farms, muzzling the press, and unleashing violence on his political opponents. It’s a true African tragedy, with a protagonist who came to personify all that he once reviled – at a cost to his country and his continent that will be reckoned for many years to come. Betty Carter’s influence on the music world is unparalleled. Her contributions as a jazz singer, composer, arranger, and teacher inspired a generation of musicians and fans, while her independence and determination blazed a trail for artists seeking to retain control over their material, financial, and creative lives. Drawing upon dozens of interviews with Carter and her musical colleagues, William R. Bauer traces Carter’s life and music as it evolved. He shows how Carter absorbed various musical influences and made them her own. He reveals how her demanding, mercurial temperament helped develop a virtual finishing school for young musicians and how exploitation by commercial interests taught her to become a shrewd deal-maker able to do her own contracting, A&R, marketing, and distribution. Fascinating, well-rounded, and technically detailed, Open the Door is a vivid portrait of one of the great figures of modern jazz and a remarkable chronicle of a half-century of musical innovation and accomplishment. » ALSO OF INTEREST John Coltrane His Life and Music Lewis Porter 0-472-08643-X pb $29.95 see page 31 10 O R D E R  F R O M  u n i P R E S S E S  T E L :  1  8 7 7  8 6 4  8 4 7 7 »  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/NATURALHISTORY UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN PRESS Great Lakes Nature An Outdoor Year Mary Blocksma APRIL 352 pages, 6 x 9” 263 illus. pb $30.95 ISBN 0-472-08929-3 Natural History Mary Blocksma is a freelance writer and artist.

But these issues, despite their new-found headliner status, are not necessarily new. Taking Trade to the Streets traces the compelling history of civil society involvement in the international trade debate, and ulti- mately links the history of trade policy to the history of social regulation. It is a social, political, and economic history that will be of interest to anyone following the growing debate on globalization and trade. “A week before the Summit of the Americas in Quebec City, I began reading Susan Aaronson’s Taking Trade to the Streets. I finished the book in my hotel room on the eve of the summit. It was then that I began wishing I had brought along 10,034 extra copies – thirty-four for President Bush and the other leaders, ten thousand for the activists outside the security fences...

As a sufferer of bipolar disorder, he has also been hospital- ized several times with debilitating depression and undergone electric shock treatment, and gained and lost eleven jobs. This engaging, humorous, and sometimes startling account gives rich insight into how it feels to experience this mental health disorder. It is illuminating reading for people with mental health problems, their families, and professional caregivers. Brian Adams first trained as a baker, then worked in youth and community services for many years. He has also been a journalist and a conserva- tion officer, has run his own small business, and done much voluntary work. He has suffered from bipolar disorder since his mid-twenties. Starting and ending on the anniversary of her son Nicholas’ diagnosis, Jennifer Overton uses key calendar events in the year to illustrate the roller coaster of emotions that accompany life with Nicholas. Among many episodes, she describes the sadness on Mother’s Day of parenting a child without hugs and kisses, and her fear that while she loves Nicholas unconditionally, the wider world might not be so accepting.

She provides a wealth of strategies for living successfully with characteristics that cannot be changed, pointing out that AS can also bring enormous strengths to a relationship, and emphasizing the value of understanding.

The voices range from wonder at the magnificence of the terrain, through frustration with the rigours of its harsh conditions, to the often humorous and sometimes tragic anecdotes of daily life in what was still mostly unexplored wilderness. This wide-ranging study will be particularly appealing to those interested in the way people approached wilderness areas during a time of dynamic change in the Pacific Northwest. At the same time, it will be an invaluable sourcebook for future histories of the northern Cascades. Fred Beckey, a legend among mountain climbers, is also the author of a number of climbing guides.

A century later Mike Lowry became the first governor of the state to address the annual lesbian and gay pride rally in Seattle. Gay Seattle traces the evolution of Seattle’s gay community in those hundred turbulent years. Atkins’ expertly rendered narrative reveals the complex process of claiming a civic life, and recounts gays’ and lesbians’ multilayered struggle for social acceptance against the forces of state and city politics, the police, the media, and public opinion.

She has published numerous articles on the biology and ecology of mosses, as well as articles on traditional Native American knowledge of the natural world. Gathering Moss is her first book. Birds of Oregon is the first complete reference on Oregon’s birds to be published since 1940. Five years in the making, this comprehensive volume includes individual accounts for the 485 species now known to occur in Oregon, including detailed accounts for the 350 species that regularly occur and briefer accounts for 135 species that are considered vagrants, wanderers, and accidental in Oregon. While it describes the appearance and any unique or special characteristics of each species, Birds of Oregon is not a field guide for identifying birds. Instead, it compiles and presents in a single large volume what is known today about the population status and distribution of each species, as well as their habitat requirements and diet, their seasonal activities and behavior, where and how they might be found, and any conservation problems. Although thoroughly supported with approxi- mately 4,000 literature citations, Birds of Oregon is written in non-technical language and will appeal to a broad audience, including birders, wildlife biologists, land managers, conservationists, naturalists, hunters, and wildlife enthusiasts in general. Living at the limits of our ordinary percep- tion, mosses are a common but largely unnoticed element of the natural world. Gathering Moss is a beautifully written mix of science and personal reflection that invites readers to explore and learn from the elegantly simple lives of mosses. Robin Wall Kimmerer’s book is not an identification guide, nor is it a scientific treatise. Rather, it is a series of linked personal essays that will lead general readers and scientists alike to an under- standing of how mosses live and how their lives are intertwined with the lives of countless other beings, from salmon and hummingbirds to redwoods and rednecks. Kimmerer artfully explains the biology of mosses, while at the same time reflecting on what these fascinating organisms have to teach us. “This is so much more than a book about mosses. This is a Native American woman speaking. This is a mother’s story. This is science revealed through the human psyche.” – Janisse Ray, author of Ecology of a Cracker Childhood and Wild Card Quilt: Taking a Chance on Home »  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/NATURALHISTORY 20 O R D E R  F R O M  u n i P R E S S E S  T E L :  1  8 7 7  8 6 4  8 4 7 7 WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY PRESS UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA PRESS Captured Honor POW Survival in the Philippines and Japan Bob Wodnik Dining at the Lineman’s Shack Smokechasing In November 1945, former prisoner of war Jack Elkins finds himself before a gathering of people clamouring to hear his experiences. They want nice, neat stories of heroes who beat the odds. They want “blood without spatters” and death with dignity – while burned in his mind are images of Japanese blood staining the bright azure of Manila Bay; of maggots assaulting the corpse of a fellow prisoner; of a mounting stack of boxes holding the ashes of captives cremated by the Japanese. It was fifty years before Jack could tell his story, and he wasn’t alone. This book presents the stories of several POWs. Through a brilliant blend of narrative, dialogue, and letters, Wodnik depicts prison-camp life in unrelenting detail, and the courage – and suffering – of the common soldier. In the words of historian Stephen Balzarini, Captured Honor is “moving and unforgettable.” It is also a testament to the men who endured so much for their country.

In this book, Steven J. Pyne tracks down more of the history and lore of fire in a collection that focuses on wildland fire and its management. In engaging and thought-provoking essays, Pyne – a leading fire expert – makes it clear that humans and fire interact at particular places and times to profoundly shape the world, and that understanding the contexts in which fire occurs can tell us much about our natural and cultural landscapes.

When Jennifer Owings Dewey and her husband adopted the orphaned raven they named Clem, he was six inches long, cold, wet, and ugly. They made him a nest in a cardboard box lined with soft fabric, fed him twelve times a day, and fell in love with him. Eventually he learned to eat chocolate ice cream, which he demanded every day. First published in 1986, Dewey’s straight- forward account of Clem’s first year, illustrated with her beautiful drawings, won an award from the National Association of Science Teachers as an Outstanding Science Book for Children. But any adult interested in birds will enjoy these vivid observations of one little corvid’s development and his relationships with other creatures in the Dewey household, including a bull snake, a burrowing owl named Clyde, and the Dewey family’s own daughter, Tamar. “The writing is precise and lucid and filled with detail about the lives of birds and animals.” – Hartford Courant Trudi Alexy and her family fled from Prague to Paris and hid in Barcelona as hastily baptized Catholics to escape the Holocaust. Fifty years later, when she set out to recapture her lost Jewish identity, she discovered a spiritual kinship with the medieval Marranos who had survived the Spanish Inquisition by concealing their Jewishness. The Marrano Legacy comprises Alexy’s e-mail correspondence with a man known only as Simon who has lived the hazardous life of a Crypto-Jewish Catholic priest, providing protection to a large community of secret Jews living as Catholics in a Latin American nation. Chosen by his family to carry on their Jewish traditions, Simon struggles in his letters with his hidden self and his sense of duty to his family, while Alexy struggles to understand why he continues to carry the burden of secrecy.

As a young man, he wanted no part of the looming conflict that would become WWII. At twenty-one, he joined the National Guard to avoid being drafted. Ten days later, he was called up for active duty. While on a secret mission in the Pacific, Rentz’s B-17 was shot down over Malang, Java, where he and the rest of the crew were captured and became Japanese POWs. They Can’t Take That Away From Me recounts not only Rentz’s devastating three-and-a-half years of captivity, but also his involvement in a secret government mission that has never before been revealed. Bittersweet and evocative, They Can’t Take That Away From Me explores the irony of human resilience amidst the atrocity of war, and in that survival the unconquerable loss of a man’s most cherished dream. Ralph Rentz, 84, married his wife, Ellie, in 1991, and is currently at work on another book. Peter Hrisko is a writer living in Los Angeles.

Rubin’s informative introductory essays discuss the cultural and historical signifi- cance of each holiday and give context for the individual literary selections. The collection also includes useful biographic notes for all authors represented. This memorable book will be a perfect and valued gift for any holiday through the year. Brandeis University Press The Round Barn Suzy Wizowaty In a deft and satisfying debut, Suzi Wizowaty skillfully weaves multiple story lines, told in a variety of voices, around the acquisition and relocation of a historic round barn by a museum in northern Vermont. With sympa- thy and insight, Wizowaty creates a range of characters – men and women, gay and straight – who wrestle with the consequences of frustrated desires. “Wizowaty’s spare and beautiful first novel is as elegant and finely wrought as (yes) a round barn. It is a delightful homage to a New England in transition, and to the people who live there – a Winesburg, Ohio for Vermont.” – Chris Bohjalian, author of The Buffalo Soldier and Midwives “Imagine Virginia Woolf taking up residence in the new Vermont, and you begin to apprehend the delicious tensions that vibrate through The Round Barn. This book is – boldly and usefully – about sex, art, madness and death. New England is justly famous for never revealing such secrets as Suzi Wizowaty spills.” – Carolyn Cooke, author of The Bostons »  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/LITERATURE 24 O R D E R  F R O M  u n i P R E S S E S  T E L :  1  8 7 7  8 6 4  8 4 7 7 UNIVERSITY PRESS OF NEW ENGLAND The Art and Practice of Explosion A Novel G.F.

No other place is so inextricably linked to the nation’s history, the development of capitalism, and the dramatic highs and lows of the financial markets. No other place has provoked such mythology, or has been the subject of so many dreams and illusions. Howard Wachtel’s book provides a fascinat- ing account of the origins of this famous street. Exploring its development through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and into the twentieth century, he charts its dramatic transformation, offering a window on the past that helps us understand how it became the center of world finance that we see today. Drawing on original archive research, and illustrated throughout with photographs, Street of Dreams – Boulevard of Broken Hearts is a lively and informative narrative that reads not only as a popular history of one of America’s great icons, but also as a critical assessment of Wall Street’s role in the political, economic, and cultural evolution of the country. This controversial book is the work of one of America’s most outspoken and talented new journalists, William Rivers Pitt. Burning with anger, he argues that, under George W. Bush, America makes a mockery of the values of liberty and truth that it purports to stand for, and that it is now more important than ever to speak out. In a series of astonishing revelations, Rivers Pitt makes the case that both the downfall of the Clinton administration, and the illegitimate installation of George W. Bush into the presidency were engineered by a group of Christian conservatives. In George W.’s America, he goes on to argue, America has in many senses lost its way. Citizens are counselled to “watch what they say” by the White House, just as questions of deadly import are ignored by the government and the media. In their rush to defend “liberty,” George Bush and his allies are actually endangering the freedom of the individual, as laid down in international law. Pitt's message is clear: seeking answers and demanding truth is not treasonous. In these dangerous days, with all that is at stake, the greatest sedition in America is silence. »  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/HISTORY »  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/POLIT ICS 26 O R D E R  F R O M  u n i P R E S S E S  T E L :  1  8 7 7  8 6 4  8 4 7 7 PLUTO PRESS Bacardi The Hidden War Hernando Calvo Ospina Translated by Stephen Wilkinson and Alasdair Holden Preface by James Petras 2002 144 pages, 5 1/4 x 8 ½” pb $30.95 ISBN 0-7453-1873-8 Current Events Hernando Calvo Ospina is a Colombian investiga- tive journalist.

It spends millions on marketing itself as the spirit of youth and vitality. But behind its image as a party drink lies a very different story. In this book, investigative journalist Hernando Calvo Ospina brings to light the commercial and political activities of the Bacardi empire to reveal its role in fostering the 40-year-long confrontation between the United States and the revolutionary govern- ment of Cuba. Through meticulous research, Ospina reveals how directors and sharehold- ers of the family-owned firm have aggres- sively worked to undermine the Castro government. He explores how they have been implicated in supporting paramilitary organizations that have carried out terrorist attacks, and reveals their links to the extreme right-wing Cuban-American Founda- tion that supported Ronald Reagan's Contra war in Nicaragua. Exploring the Bacardi empire’s links to the CIA, as well as its inside links with the Bush administration, this fascinating account shows how multinational companies act for political as well as economic interests. We live in an age of ecocide. The ozone layer is beginning to disintegrate. Since 1970 the world’s forests have almost halved. A quarter of the world’s fish have been depleted. Seventy percent of biologists believe the world is now in the midst of the fastest mass extinction of species in the planet’s 4.5 billion-year history. Biodiversity loss is rated as a more serious environmen- tal problem than the depletion of the ozone layer, global warming, or pollution and contamination. Ecocide: A Short History of the Mass Extinction of Species examines the facts behind the figures to offer a disturbing account of the ecological impact that the human species has on the planet. Highlight- ing important counter-movements who are working for ecological democracy, this unique book is essential for anyone who cares about conserving our environment for the future. “Broswimmer’s compelling polemic should be required reading for politicians and captains of industry everywhere...

Seeds of Hate How America’s Flawed Lebanon Policy Ignited the Jihad Lawrence Pintak JUNE 352 pages, 5 1/4 x 8 ½” hc $35.95 ISBN 0-7453-2043-0 Middle Eastern Studies/Politics Lawrence Pintak is a veteran foreign correspondent who has reported from more than 40 countries. As CBS News Middle East correspondent in the 1980s, he covered the birth of modern Islamic terrorism in Beirut. He writes frequently on terrorism, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia for a variety of publications. As the world watches with horror at the events unfolding in Palestine and Israel, Marc Ellis, a Jewish American scholar, examines what he sees as a crisis point in Jewish identity. Ellis offers a vision of Judaism that testifies to an ethical life in our era, based on the principles of justice and community upon which the Jewish faith was founded. Only by addressing how those original principles are being squandered by a militarized state of Israel and a complicit Jewish establishment in America, he argues, can there be hope for peace in the future. Israel and Palestine: Out of the Ashes is a deeply personal, philosophical account of contemporary Jewish identity. Looking beyond the legacy of the Holocaust and the portrayal of Jews as either victims or persecutors, Ellis forges a new vision of what it means to be Jewish today. “Marc Ellis has demonstrated great courage, integrity, and insight in the very important work he has been doing for years. It has been an inspiration for all of us.” – Noam Chomsky “Marc Ellis is a brilliant writer, a deeply thoughtful and courageous mind.” – Edward Said In the aftermath of 9/11, America has been haunted by one question: Why do they hate us? This book is an attempt to answer that question, tracing the roots of the crisis back to American involvement in the Middle East, and Lebanon in particular. Journalist Lawrence Pintak was a correspondent for CBS in Beirut in the 1980s, where he witnessed the birth of the current “terror”: its tactics were honed there. In Seeds of Hate, he explores how America’s flawed policy in the Lebanon transformed Muslim perceptions of the US – from impartial peace-keeper to hated enemy of the Lebanese Muslims. Based on Pintak’s earlier and much- acclaimed book Beirut Outtakes, first published in 1987, Seeds of Hate should be required reading for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of how and why the relationship between America and the Middle East is now more volatile than ever. »  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/JUDAICA »  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/CURRENTEVENTS » ALSO OF INTEREST Hizbu’llah Politics and Religion Amal Saad-Ghorayeb 0-7453-1792-8 pb $29.95 see page 34 28 O R D E R  F R O M  u n i P R E S S E S  T E L :  1  8 7 7  8 6 4  8 4 7 7 MANCHESTER UNIVERSITY PRESS The Philip Larkin I Knew Maeve Brennan 2002 256 pages, 6 x 9” pb $38.95 ISBN 0-7190-6276-4 Biography/Literature Maeve Brennan held the post of sub-librarian in the Brynmor Jones Library at the University of Hull from 1973 to 1985, having held other posts since 1953.

The Philip Larkin I Knew traces the author’s close friendship with the poet and stretches over a thirty-year period. It reveals Larkin in a new light – courteous, compassionate, generous; a man of deep sensitivity and charm – with a natural sense of fun and instinctive wit; in contrast to the gloomy and somewhat objectionable portrait that has emerged since his death. An intimate friend for three decades, Maeve Brennan testifies to Larkin's idealism, romanticism, and otherworldliness, qualities that inspired his lyrical poems but that are not readily associated with Larkin’s public persona. As his professional colleague, she was well placed to observe Larkin’s signifi- cant contribution to librarianship, in particu- lar the planning and direction of one of Britain’s first post-war libraries. This is a unique memoir of the poet; the author’s love affair with Larkin is interwoven with their shared professional interests and his literary achievements. An appendix of 55 letters, of which only three have been previously published between Larkin and the author corroborates the text. It is the first time both sides of Larkin’s correspondence have appeared side by side. How and why did the Nazis seize power in Germany?  Nearly seventy years on, the question remains heated and important discoveries continue to challenge long- standing assumptions. In this new edition of The Rise of the Nazis, Conan Fischer takes stock of the current debates and concludes that certain orthodoxies require radical rethinking. What lent Nazi ideology its coherence and credibility?  What distinguished the Nazis’ program from their competitors’ and how did they project it so effectively?  How was Hitler able to put together and fund an organization so quickly and effectively that it could launch a sustained assault on Weimar? Who supported the Nazis and what were their motives? Where, precisely, does Nazism belong in the history of Europe? These are the questions at the heart of Fischer’s excellent study, in which he offers a superb examination of Nazism, its context, and its supporters. »  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/BIOGRAPHY »  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/HISTORY 29 F O R  M O R E  I N F O R M AT I O N  V I S I T  W W W.
