Along with a compelling analysis of Aboriginal, legal, and anthropological concepts of fact and evidence,  Oral History on Trial  traces the long trajectory of oral history from community to court, and off ers a sophisticated critique of the Crown’s use of Aboriginal materials in key cases. A bold intervention in legal and anthropological scholarship,  Oral History on Trial  presents a powerful argument for a reconsideration of the Crown’s approach to oral history.  brUCE GrANVillE millEr  is a professor of anthropology at the University of British C o l u m b i a .        n e W  r e l e a s e     May 2011 ,  192  pages,  6 x 9 "   978-0-7748-2070-7    hC   $85.00    978-0-7748-2072-1    librAry E-book     Aboriginal Studies ,   Aboriginal History ,  Anthropology, Canadian Legal History , Law & Society         First-hand accounts of Indigenous people’s encounters with colonialism are rare. A daily diary that extends over fi ft y years is unparalleled. Based on a transcription of Arthur Wellington Clah’s diaries, this book off ers a riveting account of a Tsimshian elder who moved in both colonial and Aboriginal worlds. From his birth in 1831 to his death in 1916, Clah witnessed profound change: the arrival of traders, missionaries, and miners, and the establishment of industrial fi sheries, wage labour, and reserves. His many voyages – physical, cultural, and spiritual – provide an unprecedented Aboriginal perspective on colonial relationships on the Pacifi c Northwest Coast. pEGGy broCk  is professor emeritus, Edith Cowan University, Perth, and distinguished visiting professor at the University of Adelaide.       neW release  April 2011 ,  320  pages,  6 x 9 " 17 photographs, 4 maps  978-0-7748-2005-9    hC   $95.00   978-0-7748-2007-3    librAry E-book     Aboriginal Studies ,  Canadian Social History ,  BC History ,   Biography, Memoirs & Letters         In this innovative exploration, told-to narratives, or collaboratively produced texts by Aboriginal storytellers and (usually) non-Aboriginal writers, are not romanticized as unmediated translations of oral documents, nor are they dismissed as corruptions of original works. Rather, the approach emphasizes the interpenetration of authorship and collaboration. Focused on the 1990s, when debates over voice and representation were particularly explosive, this captivating study examines a range of told-to narratives in conjunction with key political events that have shaped the struggle for Aboriginal rights to reveal how these narratives impact larger debates about Indigenous voice and literary and political sovereignty.  sophiE mcCAll  teaches in the English Department at Simon Fraser University.  neW release  May 2011 ,  256  pages,  6 x 9 " 978-0-7748-1979-4    hC   $85.00     978-0-7748-1981-7    librAry E-book     Aboriginal Studies ,  Social & Cultural Anthropology ,   Canadian Literature        The  many Voyages of Arthur Wellington Clah  a tsimshian man on the Pacific northwest Coast  Peggy Brock    First person plural  aboriginal Storytelling and the ethics of Collaborative authorship  Sophie McCall 2      SPRING 2011     |     order online @ www.ubcpress.caPolitical scienceaBoriGinal studiesaBoriGinal studiesaBoriGinal studi sorder online @ www.ubcpress.ca     |    SPRING 2011     3   Hunters, medicine men, and missionaries continue to dominate images and narratives of the West, even though historians have recognized women’s role as colonizer and colonized since the 1980s. Kristin Burnett helps to correct this imbalance by presenting colonial medicine as a gendered phenomenon. Although the imperial eye focused on medicine men, Aboriginal women in the Treaty 7 region served as healers and caregivers – to their own people and to settler society – until the advent of settler-run hospitals and nursing stations. By revealing Aboriginal and settler women’s contributions to health care,  Taking Medicine  challenges traditional understandings of colonial medicine in the contact zone.  krisTiN bUrNETT  is a member of the Department of History at Lakehead University.   recently released  October 2010 ,  248  pages,  6 x 9 " 15 b&w photographs, 1 map  978-0-7748-1828-5    hC   $85.00    978-0-7748-1830-8    librAry E-book      Aboriginal Studies ,  Women’s Studies ,  Aboriginal Health ,   Aboriginal History ,  Alberta History  Women and indiGenouS StudieS SerieS    Taking medicine  Women’s Healing Work and Colonial Contact in Southern alberta, 1880–1930  Kristin Burnett  Being Again of One Mind  combines a critical reading of feminist literature on nationalism with the narratives of Oneida women of various generations to reveal that some Indigenous women view nationalism in the form of decolonization as a way to restore traditional gender balance and well-being to their own lives and communities.

Indigenous Women and Feminism  proposes that a dynamic new line of inquiry – Indigenous feminism – is necessary to truly engage with the crucial issues of cultural identity, nationalism, and decolonization particular to Indigenous contexts. Th rough the lenses of politics, activism, and culture, this wide-ranging collection crosses disciplinary, national, academic, and activist boundaries to explore deeply the unique political and social positions of Indigenous women. A vital and sophisticated discussion, these timely essays will change the way we think about modern feminism and Indigenous women.

Patricia McCormack subverts this narrative of modernity by examining nation building from the perspective of a northern community and its residents. Fort Chipewyan, she argues, was never an isolated Aboriginal community but a plural society at the crossroads of global, national, and local forces. By tracing the events that led its Aboriginal residents to sign Treaty No. 8 and their struggle to maintain autonomy thereaft er, this groundbreaking study shows that Aboriginal peoples and others can and have become modern without relinquishing cherished beliefs and practices.  pATriCiA A. mcCormACk  is an associate professor in the Faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta.   recently released  December 2010 ,  408  pages,  6 x 9 " 47 b&w photos, 8 maps, 7 tables, 2 family trees  978-0-7748-1668-7    hC   $90.00   978-0-7748-1670-0    librAry E-book      Aboriginal Studies ,  Canadian History ,  Alberta History ,  Historiography          Fort Chipewyan and the shaping of Canadian history, 1788–1920s  “We like to be free in this country”  Patricia A. McCormack   In 2008, Canada established a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to mend the deep rift s between Aboriginal peoples and the settler society that created Canada’s notorious residential school system.  Unsettling the Settler Within  argues that non-Aboriginal Canadians must undergo their own process of decolonization in order to truly participate in the transformative possibilities of reconciliation. Settlers must relinquish the persistent myth of themselves as peacemakers and acknowledge the destructive legacy of a society that has stubbornly ignored and devalued Indigenous experience.

How did homosexuality – an act that had for centuries been defi ned as criminal and abominable – come to be sanctioned by law? In  Judging Homosexuals,  Patrice Corriveau fi nds answers in a comparative analysis of gay persecution in France and Quebec. By tracing over time how various groups – family and clergy, doctors and jurists – tried to manage people who were defi ned in turn as sinners, as criminals, as inverts, and as citizens deserving of protection, this book shows how the law helped construct the crime.  pATriCE CorriVEAU  is an associate professor in the Department of Criminology at the University of Ottawa.  kÄThE roTh  has been a literary translator, working mainly in historical non-fi ction, for more than twenty years.   neW release  February 2011 ,  224  pages,  6 x 9 " 7 tables, 1 map  978-0-7748-1720-2    hC   $ 85.00    978-0-7748-1722-6    librAry E-book     Gender & Sexuality Studies ,   Socio-legal Studies ,  Queer Studies ,  Criminology ,  Social Movements   SeXuaLitY StudieS SerieS     Judging homosexuals  a History of Gay Persecution in Quebec and France  Patrice Corriveau, Translated by Käthe Roth  In 1899 the Canadian government passed legislation to replace Mi’kmaw political practices with the triennial system, a Euro-Canadian system of democratic band council elections. Offi  cials in Ottawa assumed the federally mandated and supervised system would redefi ne Mi’kmaw politics. Th ey were wrong. Many Mi’kmaw communities rejected or amended the legislation, while others accepted it only sporadically to meet specifi c community needs and goals. Compelling and timely, this book supports Aboriginal claims to self-governance and complicates understandings of state power by showing that the Mi’kmaw retained political practices that distinguished them from their Euro-Canadian neighbours.  mArThA EliZAbETh WAlls  teaches Canadian, Atlantic Canadian, and First Nations history.   neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  216  pages,  6 x 9 " 9 b&w photos, 16 tables, 1 map 978-0-7748-1789-9  hC $85.00  978-0-7748-1790-5    pb   $29.95   978-0-7748-1791-2    librAry E-book     Aboriginal Studies ,  Canadian History ,  Aboriginal Politics & Policy ,  Atlantic Provinces ,  Political Science     No need of a chief for this band  the maritime mi’kmaq and Federal electoral Legislation, 1899–1951  Martha Elizabeth Walls   Following the removal of the grey whale from the Endangered Species list in 1994, the Makah tribe of northwest Washington State and the Nuu-chah-nulth Nation of British Columbia announced that they would revive their whale hunts.

Michel Beaulieu returns northern Ontario to its rightful place as a birthplace of left ism in Canada by exposing the conditions that gave rise to an array of left -wing organizations. Cultural ties among workers helped bring left -wing ideas to Canada, but ethnicity weakened the left  as each group developed a distinctive vocabulary of socialism and as Anglo-Celtic workers defended their privileges against Finns, Ukrainians, and Italians. At the Lakehead, ethnic diff erence oft en outweighed class solidarity – at the cost of a stronger labour movement for Canada.  miChEl s. bEAUliEU  is the director of the Centre for Northern Studies and an associate professor of history at Lakehead University.  neW release  May 2011 ,  280  pages,  6 x 9 " 2 maps  978-0-7748-2001-1    hC   $85.00     978-0-7748-2003-5    librAry E-book     Canadian Labour History , Ontario History         labour at the lakehead  ethnicity, Socialism, and Politics, 1900–35  Michel S.

Rodeo brought people together across racial and gender divides, creating friendships, rivalries, and unexpected intimacies. Fans made hometown cowboys, cowgirls, and Aboriginal riders local heroes. Lavishly illustrated, this creative history returns to rodeo’s small-town roots to shed light on the history of social relations in Canada’s western frontier.  mAry-EllEN kElm  is a Canada Research Chair in the Department of History at Simon Fraser University.   neW release  May 2011 ,  256  pages,  6 x 9 " 52 b&w photos, 3 maps  978-0-7748-2029-5    hC   $85.00     978-0-7748-2031-8    librAry E-book     Canadian Social History ,  Communication & Cultural Studies ,  Canadian Aboriginal History ,  Women’s History         A   Wilder West  rodeo in Western Canada  Mary-Ellen Kelm  Th e experience of walking down a store aisle – replete with displays, sales people, and infi nite choice – is so common we oft en forget retail has a short history.

Th e Practice of Execution in Canada  is not about what led some to the gallows and others to escape it. Rather, it examines how the routine rituals and practices of execution can be seen as a crucial social institution. Drawing on hundreds of case fi les, Ken Leyton-Brown shows that from trial to interment, the practice of execution was constrained by law and tradition. Despite this, however, the institution was not rigid. Criticism and reform pushed executions out of the public eye, and in so doing, stripped them of meaningful ritual and made them more vulnerable to criticism.  kEN lEyToN-broWN  is an associate professor in the History Department at the University of Regina.  neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  216  pages,  6 x 9 "978-0-7748-1753-0  hC $85.00  978-0-7748-1754-7    pb   $32.95   978-0-7748-1755-4    librAry E-book     Canadian History ,  Legal History ,  Law & Society ,  Socio-legal Studies           T h e   practice of Execution in Canada     Ken Leyton-Brown   In  Acts of Occupation  historians Cavell and Noakes deliver the engrossing story of Canada’s early days of Arctic policy.

She concludes that education is most successful when Inuit involvement and local control support a system refl ecting Inuit culture and visions.  hEAThEr E. mcGrEGor  is a researcher who currently works for the public service in Nunavut.  neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  224  pages,  6 x 9 " 9 b&w photos, 1 map 978-0-7748-1744-8  hC $85.00  978-0-7748-1745-5    pb   $32.95    978-0-7748-1746-2    librAry E-book     History ,   Aboriginal Education ,  Aboriginal Politics & Policy , Northern Studies,  Educational Policy & Th e o r y                inuit Education and schools in the Eastern Arctic     Heather E.

Can any history be truly inclusive? Th is volume advances the debate by shift ing the focus from  what  should be included in history education to  how we should think about and teach the past. In this book, historians and educators discuss the state of history education research and its implications for classrooms, museums, virtual environments, and public institutional settings.

Combining military and labour history with the social history of BC, Quebec, and Russia, Benjamin Isitt examines how the Siberian Expedition exacerbated tensions within Canadian society at a time when a radicalized working class, many French-Canadians, and even the soldiers themselves objected to a military adventure designed to counter the Russian Revolution.

Drawing on previously classifi ed government documents and interviews with senior offi  cials, James Fergusson off ers the fi rst full account of Canada’s unsure response to US initiatives. He reveals that factors such as weak leadership and a tendency to place uncertain and ill-defi ned notions of international peace and security before national defence have resulted in indecision.

Marshall  In 1922-23, Chinese students in Victoria, BC, went on strike to protest a school board’s attempt to impose segregation. Th eir resistance was unexpected and runs against the grain of mainstream accounts of Asian exclusion, which tend to ignore the agency of the excluded. In  Contesting White Supremacy,  Timothy Stanley combines Chinese sources and perspectives with an innovative theory of racism and anti-racism to explain the strike and construct an alternative reading of racism in British Columbia. His work demonstrates that education was an arena in which white supremacy confronted Chinese nationalist schooling and where parents and students contested racism by constructing a new category – Chinese Canadian – to defi ne their identity.

Th is campaign was part of a wide-ranging reform program to eliminate prostitution, eradicate drinking, spread Christianity, and improve the lives of women. As Elizabeth Dorn Lublin shows, members did not passively accept and propagate government policy but felt a duty to shape it by defi ning social problems and infl uencing opinion. Certain their beliefs and reforms were essential to Japan’s advancement, members couched their calls for change in the rhetorical language of national progress. Ultimately, the WCTU’s activism belies received notions of women’s public involvement and political engagement in Meiji Japan.

Governments and international development agencies have made housing the urban poor a priority, but few focus on women’s needs. Based on research conducted in Ahmedabad in collaboration with the Self-Employed Women’s Association (SEWA), this book maps the constraints and opportunities that low-income women throughout the Global South face in securing property, which remains overwhelmingly in male hands. Th eir experiences and vulnerabilities open a window to assess not only land tenure and property laws but also potential solutions such as microcredit fi nancing and diverse theoretical approaches to gender and development.  bipAshA bArUAh  is an assistant professorof international studies at California State University, Long Beach.

In  Moving Mountains,  anthropologists, geographers, and political economists with fi rst-hand experience in the region explore these peoples’ survival strategies, as they respond to unprecedented economic and political change. Although highland peoples are typically represented as marginalized and powerless, this volume argues that ethnic minorities draw on culture and ethnicity to indigenize modernity and maintain their livelihoods. Th is unprecedented glimpse into a poorly understood region shows that development initiatives must be built on strong knowledge of local cultures in order to have lasting eff ect.

Once Canada’s governing party and now confi ned to the opposition benches, it struggles to renew itself. Drawing on interviews and personal observations in cross-country ridings, Royce Koop reveals that although the federal Liberal Party disassociated itself from its provincial cousins to rebuild itself in the mid-twentieth century, grassroots Liberals in the constituencies are building bridges between the national party and the provinces. Th is insider’s view of party politics challenges the idea that Canada has two distinct political spheres – the provincial and the national – and suggests that national parties can overcome the challenges of multi-level politics by deepening ties with constituencies.  royCE koop  is the Skelton-Clark Postdoctoral Fellow at Queen’s University.    neW release  May 2011 ,  224  pages,  6 x 9 " 978-0-7748-2097-4    hC   $85.00     978-0-7748-2099-8    librAry E-book     Political Science ,  Canadian Federal Politics ,  Provincial Politics ,  Canadian Government ,  Canadian Political Parties & Elections           Grassroots liberals  organizing for Local and national Politics  Royce Koop  Post-9/11 security measures have sparked fears that the West is violating the very civil rights it strives to protect. Debates centre on the United States, but how have the politics of security infl uenced the commitment to freedom in other liberal democracies? Addressing security certifi cates to the War in Afghanistan to the detainment of Abdullah Almalki, Colleen Bell’s wide-ranging analysis demonstrates that Canada’s counter-terrorism practices are not a departure from liberal governance but rather a reconfi guration of its structures with an emphasis on security. She traces how the logic and practices of security are increasingly coming to defi ne our rights and freedoms.

In this remarkable comparative study, expert authors explore the tenacity of anti-gay sentiment, as well as the dramatic shift s in public attitudes towards queer groups across all faith communities in both the United States and Canada.

Building on these observations, Paul Howe examines patterns of participation and engagement from both the past and present, concluding that young Canadians are, in fact, increasingly detached from the political and civic life of the country. As  Citizens Adrift   shows, putting young people back on the path towards engaged citizenship requires a holistic approach, one which acknowledges that democratic engagement extends beyond the realm of formal politics.  pAUl hoWE  is a professor of political science at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton.  recently released  November 2010 ,  360  pages,  6 x 9 " 57 graphs, 22 tables  978-0-7748-1875-9    hC   $95.00    978-0-7748-1877-3    librAry E-book     Political Science ,  Canadian Public Policy & Administration ,  Canadian Elections ,  Social Movements ,  Canadian Government         Citizens Adrift  the democratic disengagement of Young Canadians  Paul Howe   Politics on the Canadian prairies are puzzling. Th e provinces share common roots, but they have nurtured three distinct political cultures: Alberta is Canada’s bastion of conservatism, Saskatchewan its cradle of social democracy, and Manitoba its progressive centre. Jared Wesley explains this paradox by looking at the rhetoric employed by dominant parties to renew their provinces’ political code: freedom for Alberta, security for Saskatchewan, and moderation for Manitoba. Although the content of their campaigns diff ered, leaders from William Aberhart to Tommy Douglas to Gary Doer have employed distinct codes to ensure their parties’ success and shape their provinces’ political landscapes.

In 2008, opposition leaders were prepared to defeat the Conservative Party over its proposal to eliminate public subsidies to parties. In this book, prominent political scientists explore the underlying issues that led to the showdown. Are publicly funded parties compatible with democracy? What eff ect has party fi nance reform had on elections and on the balance of power between parties and donors and between national parties and local organizations? Contributors show that campaign fi nance reforms have shaped party organization and electoral competition, contributing to successive minority governments.  lisA yoUNG  is a professor of political science at the University of Calgary.  hArolD J.

What does citizenship mean in an era of heightened tension between global capitalism and the nation-state? Building on Foucault’s concept of biopolitics and an examination of national border and detention policies, Rygiel argues that citizenship is becoming a globalizing regime to govern mobility. Th e new regime is deepening boundaries based on race, class, and gender, and causing Western nations to embrace a more technocratic, depoliticized understanding of citizenship. kim ryGiEl  is an assistant professor of political science at Wilfrid Laurier University and co-editor of  (En)Gendering the War on Terror: War Stories and Camoufl aged Politics   neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  272  pages,  6 x 9 "   978-0-7748-1804-9    hC   $85.00    978-0-7748-1805-6    pb   $34.95    978-0-7748-1806-3    librAry E-book      International Political Science ,  Globalization ,  Security Studies,   Socio-legal Studies,   Race & Transnationalism in Politics ,  International Relations          Globalizing Citizenship     Kim Rygiel   In 1999 and 2000, France adopted laws to ensure equal access to elected offi  ce for women and men.

Drawing on extensive interviews,  as well as on European and French legal documents, Praud and Dauphin show that although these reforms have not dramatically boosted women’s representation in the National Assembly, they have set in motion a process of feminization in the electoral sphere that bodes well for the future of parity democracy.

And the rampant commodifi cation of cultural products has challenged the way we defi ne culture itself. Have these developments transformed the relationship between culture and autonomy? Have traditional notions of cultural autonomy been recast? Th is book showcases the work of scholars who employ a broad defi nition of culture to trace how issues of cultural autonomy have played out in various arenas, including literary criticism, Indigenous societies, the Slow Food movement, and skateboarding culture. Although they focus on the marginalized issue of autonomy, they reveal that globalization has both limited as well as created new forms of cultural autonomy.  pETrA rEThmANN  is an associate professor in the Department of Anthropology at McMaster University.  imrE sZEmAN  is Canada Research Chair in Cultural Studies and a professor of English and fi lm studies at the University of Alberta.

With its up-to-date comparative scrutiny of forest policies, this book provides forest managers, scholars, and students with the information and concepts to critically examine Canada’s complex forest tenure systems. Looking at tenure, stumpage fees, and other forest practices, the authors assess how well diff erent provincial schemes achieve the goals of sustainable forest management. Th ey identify essential policy attributes that could be used to guide tenure reform, consider barriers that could prevent meaningful change, and off er much-needed practical guidance on overcoming these obstacles.  mArTiN k. lUCkErT  is a professor in the Department of Rural Economy at the University of Alberta.

Shannon Stunden Bower brings to light the complexities of surface water management in Manitoba, from early artifi cial drainage eff orts to late-twentieth-century attempts at watershed management. She engages scholarship on the state, liberalism, and bioregionalism in order to probe the connections between human and environmental change in the wet prairie. Th is account of an overlooked aspect of the region’s environmental history reveals how the biophysical nature of southern Manitoba has been an important factor in the formation of Manitoba society and the provincial state.  shANNoN sTUNDEN boWEr  is a SSHRCpostdoctoral fellow in the Department of History and Classics at the University of Alberta.  neW release  April 2011 ,  232  pages,  6 x 9 " 10 b&w photos, 9 maps  978-0-7748-1852-0    hC   $85.00     978-0-7748-1854-4    librAry E-book     Environmental History ,  Resource Management ,    Environmental Politics ,  Historical Geography ,  Canadian Urban & Regional Politics   nature | HiStorY | SoCietY SerieS    Wet prairie  People, Land, and Water in agricultural manitoba  Shannon Stunden Bower 24      SPRING 2011     |     order online @ www.ubcpress.ca order online @ www.ubcpress.ca     |    SPRING 2011     25  ornitholoGyenVironmental historyurBan studies & PlanninG Suburbanization, aff ordable housing, mass transportation, loss of fertile lands – these are modern problems, yet they are not new.

Edgington   When a recent wave of condominium development overtook Toronto, women emerged as powerful consumers, and reports claimed that home ownership was off ering young, single women freedom, fi nancial independence, and personal security.  Sex and the Revitalized Cityexamines the truth of these claims by exploring the phenomenon from the perspective of women condo owners and planners and developers. Th is fresh perspective on urban revitalization reveals that condo ownership is not freeing women from constraints – neoliberal ideologies are remaking women’s relationship with the city in the image of fast capital and consumer citizenship. Women’s emancipation through condominium ownership is a marketing ploy rather than a major shift  in gender relations.  lEsliE kErN  is an assistant professor of women’s studies at Mount Allison University.  neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  224  pages,  6 x 9 " 13 b&w photos 978-0-7748-1822-3  hC $85.00 978-0-7748-1823-0    pb   $32.95    978-0-7748-1824-7    librAry E-book      Urban Studies & Planning ,  Women’s Studies ,  Sociology of Gender          sex and the revitalized City  Gender, Condominium development, and urban Citizenship  Leslie Kern   Urban sprawl – low-density subdivisions and business parks, big box stores and mega-malls – has increasingly come to defi ne city growth despite decades of planning and policy. In  Perverse Cities , Pamela Blais argues that fl awed public policies and mis-pricing create hidden, “perverse” subsidies and incentives that promote sprawl while discouraging more effi  cient and sustainable urban forms – clearly not what most planners and environmentalists have in mind.

Rights groups argue that resolving past violence is necessary for a peaceful future. But how can nations ensure that instruments of transitional justice are the best path to reconciliation? Th is book develops a theoretical framework – a framework of acknowledgement – to evaluate truth commissions. Analysis of the diffi  culties encountered and the ultimate failure of truth commissions in Uganda and Haiti reveals that acknowledgement of past violence – by both victims and perpetrators – must come before goals such as forgiveness and social cohesion if reconciliation is to be achieved.

Quinn   Since 9/11 and the onset of the “war on terror,” the principal challenge confronting liberal democracies has been to balance freedom with security and individual with collective rights. Th is book sheds new light on the evolution of human rights norms in liberal democracies by charting the activism of four Canadian NGOs on issues of refugee rights, hate speech, and the death penalty, including their use of diffi  cult, oft en controversial legal cases as platforms to assert human rights principles and shape judicial policy-making. Th e struggles of these NGOs reveal not only the fragility but also the resilience of ideas about rights in liberal democracies.  ANDrEW s.

T_h e distinguished group of scholars whose work is showcased here, however, shows that our understanding of where the concept of Aboriginal title came from – and where it may be going – can also be enhanced by exploring legal developments in these former British colonies in a comparative, multidisciplinary framework. T_h is path-breaking book of_f ers a perspective on Aboriginal title that extends beyond national borders to consider similar developments in common law countries.  LOUIS A.

Knafl a and  Haijo Westra   Political communities are def_i ned, and of_t en contested, through stories. Scholars have long recognized that two foundational sets of stories – narratives of contact and narratives of arrival – helped to def_i ne settler societies.  Storied Communities  disrupts the assumption in many works that Indigenous and immigrant identities fall into two separate streams of analysis. T_h e authors juxtapose narratives of contact and narratives of arrival as they explore key themes such as narrative form, the nature of storytelling in the political realm, and the institutional and theoretical implications of foundation narratives. By doing so, they open up new ways to imagine, sustain, and transform political communities.  HESTER LESSARD  is a professor of law at the University of Victoria.

But when one asks –  who consented? how? to what type of community?  – consent becomes very elusive, more myth than reality. In  Between Consenting Peoples  leading scholars in legal and political theory examine the dif_f erent ways in which consent has been used to justify political communities and the authority of law, especially in Indigenous-nonindigenous relations. T_h ey explore the kind of consent – the kind of attachment – that might ground political community and establish a fair relationship between Indigenous and nonindigenous peoples.

Th ere has, however, been no systematic attempt to identify general theories about Canada’s constitutional evolution. Patrick James corrects this oversight. By adding clarity to familiar debates, this succinct assessment of major writings on constitutional politics sharpens our vision of the past – and the future – of the Canadian federation.  pATriCk JAmEs  is a professor of international relations and director of the Center for International Studies at the University of Southern California.  neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  200  pages,  6 x 9 " 9 b&w fi gures 978-0-7748-1786-8  hC $85.00 978-0-7748-1787-5    pb   $32.95    978-0-7748-1788-2    librAry E-book      Constitutional Law ,  Political Science ,  Canadian Federal Politics  LaW and SoCietY SerieS      Courts of law at once refl ect and shape the society in which they reside and dispense justice.
