C A Journey to the Ice Age Discovering an Ancient World At the end of the Ice Age, small groups of hunter-gatherers crossed from Siberia to Alaska and opened the last chapter in the human settlement of the earth. Many left little or no trace. But one group -- the Early Paleo-Indians -- exploded suddenly on the archaeological record about 11,500 years ago and expanded rapidly throughout North America and, eventually, into South America. Why was this group so successful? To understand this, we need to know how they coped with change and different Ice Age environments. This book, by archaeologist and curator Peter Storck, focuses on the challenges faced by the Early Paleo-Indians of northeastern North America. A revealing, autobiographical account, Journey to the Ice Age is at once a captivating record of Storck’s archaeological discoveries, as well as an introduction to the practice, challenges, and spirit of archaeology. Whether you’re in your teens or in your 80s, if you’ve ever wanted to roll back the present and see the landscape of the past, this book is sure to delight you. Designed to take readers on their own journey to the Ice Age, the book includes a guided tour across ancient beaches, through glacially scoured valleys, and up into formerly remote highlands – places evocative of another geological epoch and which contain hidden traces of Southern Ontario’s, and Canada’s, founding peoples. Of interest to both professional and amateur, student and teacher, special- ist and novice, this personal, often evocative, account is bound to satisfy anyone who’s ever yearned to ask an archaeologist: How do you know where to dig? Why do you do what you do? Or what does it all mean? “A passionate yet consummately erudite account of his intellectual odyssey from young scientist to pre-eminent scholar of Ice Age archae- ology. It is an honest, inspiring, and well-written story of a life devoted to science combined with a remarkably intimate portrait of the Ice Age people that Storck has been tracking for his entire professional career.” – Bradley Lepper, Curator of Archaeology, Ohio Historical Society “This book will open the consciousness of North Americans to the ancient world that surrounds their daily lives. Familiar landscapes will carry new significance as the settings for primeval iceberg-laden seas, exotic animals, and peoples whose way of life is totally alien to that of the modern world.” – Robert McGhee, author of Ancient People of the Arctic Peter L. Storck is Senior Curator Emeritus at the Department of Anthropology, Royal Ontario Museum.

The discovery snowballed into a fourteen-year battle with the Ontario legal establishment, as Mrs. Campbell attempted to prove that her uncle, a prominent member of Ontario’s legal circle, had stolen funds from her mother’s estate. In 1930, she argued her case before the Law Lords of the Privy Council in London. A non-lawyer and Canadian, with no formal education, Campbell was the first woman to ever appear before them. She won. Reprinted here in its entirety, Where Angels Fear to Tread, Campbell’s self-published manuscript, is an eloquent and rare first-person account of the world of overlapping intrigue and influence that constituted the early-twentieth-century legal system. Extensive commentary and annotations illuminate the context for Campbell’s story, and allow readers to better understand the implications of her case for Canadian legal history. So much more than a simple case study, The Heiress vs the Establishment is a vibrantly written account that will be wel- comed by legal and social historians, those with an interest in Canadian letters, scholars of gender studies, as well as the public at large. Constance Backhouse is Professor of Law, Director of the Human Rights Research and Education Centre, and University Research Chair at the University of Ottawa.

LAW AND SOCIETY SERIES “I belong to the old Canada, that Canada which is rapidly passing away. My own father, James Bethune, Q.C., was one of the  leading counsel at the Ontario Bar, and my step-father, Sir William Howland, K.C.M.G., C.B., was the second Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, for whom Government House in Toronto was built ... I should like to say just here that in my father’s and step-father’s day the legal profession of Ontario and the trust companies, if any existed, were of the highest repute. My reading public will no doubt, as my story proceeds, form their own opinion as to whether these traditions of honor still hold good in high places throughout Ontario today.” – From Where Angels Fear to Tread by Elizabeth Bethune Campbell, published in 1940 3F O R  M O R E  I N F O R M AT I O N  V I S I T  W W W. U B C P R E S S . C A Saints, Sinners, and Soldiers Canada’s Second World War It was the “Good War.” Its cause was just; it ended the Depres- sion; and Canada’s contribution was nothing less than stellar. Canadians had every reason to applaud themselves, and the heroes that made the nation proud. But the dark truth was that not all Canadians were saints or soldiers. Indeed, many were sinners. In this eye-opening and captivating reassessment of Canadian commitment to the cause, some disturbing questions come to light. Were citizens working as hard as possible to back the war effort?  Was there illegal profiting from the conflict? Did Canadian society suffer from a general decline of “morality” during the war?  Would women truly “back the attack” in new factory jobs and the military, and then quietly return home? Would unattended youth produce a crisis with juvenile delin- quency?  How would Canada reintegrate a million veterans who, policy-makers feared, would create a social crisis if treated like their Great War counterparts? The first-ever synthesis of both the patriotic and the problematic in wartime Canada, Saints, Sinners, and Soldiers shows how moral and social changes, and the fears they generated, precipitated numerous, and often contradictory, legacies in law and society.  From labour conflicts, to the black market, to prostitution, and beyond, Keshen acknowledges the under- belly of Canada’s Second World War, and demonstrates that the “Good War” was a complex tapestry of social forces – not all of which were above reproach. Essential to both military and social historians, this book will also prove fascinating to anyone interested in the evolution of Canada’s social fabric. “Opening up a large number of new questions about the 1940s and, by extension, other periods of the 20th century, Saints, Sinners, and Soldiers will become a standard work in Canadian social history.” – Terry Copp, author of Fields of Fire: The Canadians in Normandy “Jeffrey Keshen’s Saints, Sinners, and Soldiers is an extraordinary look at how Canadians lived, loved, and worked on the homefront during the Second World War. His massive research into the sources that other historians usually skip over has produced the single best study of rapidly changing social values in a time of great crisis that we have. Absolutely first-rate…” – J.L. Granatstein, author of Canada’s Army: Waging War and Keeping the Peace Jeffrey A. Keshen is a member of the Department of History at the University of Ottawa.

Not all were ill-fated airmen, shot down in the fury of battle. In fact, some were there by design. As volunteers who risked their lives in extremely hazardous assignments, almost one hundred Canadians served the Allied forces by passing as locals in occupied countries. At the behest of two secret British services, these men made language and custom their costumes and wove themselves into the social fabric of France, Italy, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Burma, Malaya, and Sarawak. As “citizens” of these countries, they were uniquely positioned to assist resistance groups in sabotage and ambush missions, and to smuggle Allied airmen out of the occupied territories. Quiet heroes of the war, these bold Canadians helped to make the brutal and unrelenting warfare of the underground a potent weapon in the Allied arsenal. Out of print for more than two decades, this bestselling book recognizes the unique contribution of these individuals to the underground war effort in WWII. It is also a study of unstinting personal courage in the face of overwhelming odds. Military and Canadian historians, veterans, and anyone interested in this fascinating piece of Canada’s past will appreciate MacLaren’s engaging, well-researched account. The Honourable Roy MacLaren, a graduate of the Universities of British Columbia, Toronto, and Cambridge, was a diplomat, business- man, and Member of Parliament.  He was Minister of State (Finance), Minister of National Revenue, and Minister of International Trade. He is the author of four other books on Canadian military and political subjects.

Boyd Unnatural Law Rethinking Canadian Environmental Law and Policy RECENTLY RELEASED “David Boyd has examined our condition, given us a diagnosis, and written a prescription for a sustainable future. The doctor is in.” – Thomas R. Berger “For all our sakes, read this book and help make the changes David Boyd prescribes.” – Elizabeth May, Sierra Club of Canada While governments assert that Canada is a world leader in sustainability, Unnatural Law provides extensive evidence to refute this claim. A comprehensive assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of Canadian environmental law, the book provides a balanced, critical examination of Canada’s record, focusing on laws and policies intended to protect water, air, land, and biodiversity. The struggle for a sustainable future is one of the most daunting challenges facing humanity in the twenty-first century. Unnatural Law prescribes the changes Canada must make in order to respond to the ecological imperative of living within the Earth’s limits. Everyone -- academics, lawyers, students, policymakers, and concerned citizens -- interested in the health of the Canadian and global environments will find this book an invaluable source of information and insight. David R. Boyd is an environmental lawyer, profes- sor, and former executive director of the Sierra Legal Defence Fund. 2003 488 pages, 6 x 9” pb $29.95, ISBN 0-7748-1049-1 LAW AND SOCIETY SERIES Environmental Studies/Current Affairs Murdering Holiness The Trials of Franz Creffield and George Mitchell Jim Phillips and Rosemary Gartner Murdering Holiness explores the story of the “Holy Roller” sect led by Franz Creffield in the early years of the twentieth century. Creffield, a charismatic, self-styled messiah based in Corvallis, Oregon, taught his followers to forsake their families and worldly possessions and to seek salvation through him. As his teachings became more extreme, the local community reacted: Creffield was tarred and feathered and his followers were incarcerated in the state asylum. Creffield himself was imprisoned for adultery but later revived the sect. This proved too much for some of the adherents’ families, and in 1906 George Mitchell, the brother of two women in the sect, shot Creffield dead in Seattle. This was just the beginning of a remarkable sequence of events that included Mitchell’s trial for murder, his acquittal and almost immediate death in a revenge killing, and the proceedings against Mitchell’s murderers. This captivating book takes us into the courtroom for the trial that made headlines across North America and sheds light on the rise of ardent religion in the Pacific Northwest, the justice system in Seattle, and the role of the press in influencing public opinion. Jim Phillips is Director of the Centre of Criminology and a professor in the Faculty of Law and Depart- ment of History. Rosemary Gartner is a professor at the Centre of Criminology and the Department of Sociology.

But be forewarned: Whatever your preconcep- tions about who’s right, who’s left and who’s wrong, this little book is full of surprises.” – Terence Corcoran, Editor-in-Chief, Financial Post In our news-hungry society, journalists have become celebrities and, often, political proxies. To a large degree, our world is shaped by their commentaries on everything from war to health care to trade. Hidden Agendas is a no-holds- barred exposé of how reporters’ opinions shape the information that we consider news. Focusing primarily on the political orientation of journalists, Miljan and Cooper investigate the link between what journalists believe about politics and how they report political issues. Using data gathered from interviews with over 800 Canadians and some 270 journalists, the book arrives at the controversial conclusion that journalists, more so than media owners, are the architects of news, engineering not only its drama but also its ideological thrust. Lydia Miljan and Barry Cooper are both professors of political science. They teach at the University of Windsor and the University of Calgary, respectively. 2003 188 pages, 6 x 9” pb $24.95, ISBN 0-7748-1020-3 Journalism/Current Affairs/Politics 6 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 UBC PRESS Edited by John Barker and Douglas Cole At Home with the Bella Coola Indians T.F. McIlwraith’s Field Letters, 1922–4 NOW IN PAPERBACK Between 1922 and 1924, the young Canadian anthropologist T.F. McIlwraith spent eleven months in the isolated community of Bella Coola, British Columbia, living among the people of the Nuxalk First Nation. During his time there, McIlwraith gained intimate knowledge of the Nuxalk culture and of their struggle to survive in the face of massive depopulation, loss of traditional lands, and the efforts of the Canadian government to ban the potlatch. McIlwraith's resulting ethnography, The Bella Coola Indians (1948), is widely considered the finest published study of a Northwest Coast First Nation. This volume is a rich complement to McIlwraith’s classic work, incorporating his letters from the field with previously unpublished essays on the Nuxalk. Vivid and lively, the letters show the human side of the anthropologist, and provide a fascinating insight into the famous Northwest winter ceremonials and potlatch – events in which McIlwraith was one of the few white men privileged to participate as a dancer and partner. John Barker is an associate professor in the Department of Anthropology and Sociology at the University of British Columbia. Douglas Cole was a professor in the Department of History at Simon Fraser University. He died in 1997.

By the late 1990s, Vancouver had established a reputation in North America for its planning achievement, especially for its creation of a participative, responsive, and design-led approach to urban regeneration and redevelopment. This system has other important features: an innovative approach to megaproject planning, a system of cost and amenity levies on major schemes, a participative process to underpin active neighbourhood planning, and a sophisticated panoply of design guidelines. These systems, processes, and their achievements place Vancouver at the forefront of international planning practice. The Vancouver Achievement explains the keys to its success, and evaluates its approach to planning and design against internationally accepted criteria. Generously illustrated with over 160 photos and figures, this book – the first comprehen- sive account of contemporary planning and urban design practice in any Canadian city – will appeal to academic and professional audiences, as well as the general public. John Punter is with the Department of City and Regional Planning, Cardiff University, Wales. JANUARY 448 pages, 69 b/w photos, figures, maps, 6 x 9” pb $34.95, ISBN 0-7748-0972-8 Planning/Urban Studies NOW IN PAPERBACK John R. Hinde When Coal Was King Ladysmith and the Coal-Mining Industry on Vancouver Island The town of Ladysmith was one of the most important coal-mining communities on Vancouver Island during the early twentieth century. The Ladysmith miners had a reputa- tion for radicalism and militancy and engaged in bitter struggles for union recognition and economic justice, most notably the Great Strike of 1912-14. This strike, one of the longest and most violent labour disputes in Canadian history, marked a watershed in the history of the town and the coal industry. This book explains the origins of the 1912-14 strike by examining the development of the coal industry on Vancouver Island, the found- ing of Ladysmith, the experience of work and safety in the mines, the process of political and economic mobilization, and how these factors contributed to the development of identity and community. Unique to this analysis is Hinde’s emphasis on the importance of class, ethnicity, gender, and community in creating the conditions for the mobilization of the working-class population. Informed by current academic debates, this readable history draws on extensive archival research, and will appeal to historians and others interested in the history of Vancouver Island. John R. Hinde has taught at the University of Victoria and Malaspina University College. His first book, Jacob Burckhardt and the Crisis of Modernity, was awarded the 2001 Wallace K. Ferguson Prize by the Canadian Historical Association. JANUARY 288 pages, 22 b/w illus., 3 maps, 6 x 9” pb $24.95, ISBN 0-7748-0936-1 History 7F O R  M O R E  I N F O R M AT I O N  V I S I T  W W W.

Mark Brigham), Opossums, Shrews and Moles of British Columbia, and The Mammals of British Columbia: A Taxonomic Catalogue. David W. Nagorsen Rodents and Lagomorphs of British Columbia The rodents are the world’s most numerous and diverse group of mammals. British Columbia is home to 45 species, from the tiny western harvest mouse to the large and toothy beaver, from the ubiquitous rats and squirrels to the endangered Vancouver Island marmot. Just seven species of lagomorphs inhabit BC: five rabbits and hares, and two pikas. Most people regard these small mammals as pests or vermin, but we cannot overlook their importance to the province’s ecosystems. Because of their abundance, rodents and lagomorphs are vital prey species for raptors and mammalian carnivores. Burrowing species play an important role in aerating soils. Some rodents, such as chipmunks, voles, and flying squirrels, are also important in forest ecosys- tems because they consume truffles or underground fungi and disperse their spores on the forest floor. In Lagomorphs and Rodents of British Columbia, David Nagorsen summarizes the most up-to-date information on these mam- mals. He discusses their general biology, including ecology, diet, anatomy, conservation and relations with humans. Illustrated keys aid in identification of the 52 species inhabiting the province. For each species, the author describes its natural history, identifying characteristics, taxonomy, and conservation, status in the province. Each species account is accompanied by illustrations and a distribution map. Robert G. Forsyth Land Snails of British Columbia Snails and slugs have a reputation as slimy, repulsive creatures that are nothing more than garden pests, but they are important compo- nents of the ecosystems in which they live. Worldwide there are more species of snails and slugs than all the mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians combined, yet they are often overlooked because of their relatively small size. Land snails and slugs are well adapted to live in almost any kind of environment, from high arctic tundra to tropical forests. In British Columbia, they can be found just about everywhere. Land Snails of British Columbia is the first book on land snails (including slugs) that describes all the species in a region of Canada. Robert Forsyth describes the 88 species known to live in our province and includes photographs and detailed drawings of each. Diagnostic keys and a selection of colour photographs also aid in identification. With each species description, the author discusses its natural history and distribution in the province. Reproduction, life history, diet, locomotion, and shell structure (yes, even slugs have shells!), are also discussed. Gardeners, nature buffs, and anyone inter- ested in looking past the bad reputation of the much-maligned snail will find this handbook an eye-opening guide.

Isaiah Berlin, edited by Henry Hardy Foreword by Strobe Talbott The Soviet Mind Russian Culture under Communism Isaiah Berlin’s response to the Soviet Union was central to his identity, both personal and intellectual. Born a Russian subject in Riga in 1909, he spoke Russian as a child and witnessed both revolutions in St. Petersburg in 1917, emigrating to the West in 1921. He first returned to Russia in 1945, when he met Anna Akhmatova and Boris Pasternak. These formative encounters helped shape his later work, especially his defense of political freedom and his studies of pre-Soviet Russian thinkers. Berlin’s writings about the USSR have not previously been collected. Some are not widely known, having been published under a pseudonym to protect his relatives in Russia. Three of these pieces have never been published before, and two appeared only posthumously. Here are Berlin’s accounts of his famous meetings with Russian writers shortly after the Second World War; his celebrated 1945 Foreign Office memorandum on the state of the arts under Stalin; his account of Stalin’s manipulative “artificial dialectic;” portraits of Osip Mandel’shtam and Pasternak; his survey of Soviet Russian culture written after a visit in 1956; a surprised but delighted postscript stimulated by the events of 1989; and more besides. The Soviet Mind will take its rightful place among Berlin’s works and will be welcomed by all his readers. It will also prove invaluable for policymakers, students, and other observers of Russian politics as they explore the roots of current trends. Ivo H. Daalder and James M. Lindsay America Unbound President George W. Bush is leading a revolution in American foreign policy. Galva- nized by the terrorist attacks of September 11, he has radically amended, and in some cases abandoned, strategies and institutions that for decades guided America’s engage- ment in the world. With terrorists, tyrants, and technologies of mass destruction posing a grave and growing danger, Bush believes that the best – if not the only way – to ensure America’s security is to shuck the constraints imposed by friends, allies, and international institutions. In America Unbound, Ivo Daalder and James Lindsay explore how Bush became a foreign policy revolutionary. They show how Bush believed from the outset that the confident and unilateral exercise of American power was the best way to promote America’s national interests. September 11, rather than transforming US foreign policy, in fact rein- forced Bush’s worldview. For Bush, the need to defeat enemies abroad before they could strike again became not just his priority, but his mission. The Bush revolution in foreign policy, the authors argue, carries with it high risks and possibly high costs. An America unbound by the need to convince others of the justice of its cause is an America that conveys an arrogance born of power rather than principle. At some point, they warn, America’s friends and allies may refuse to follow its lead, and some may actively oppose its chosen course. At that point, the United States will stand all alone – a great power shackled in its pursuit of its most important goals.

C A BROOKINGS INSTITUTION PRESS Stephen Philip Cohen The Idea of Pakistan Many observers have criticized Pakistan as a failed state, or even a “rogue” state, particu- larly for its support of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan prior to the September 11th terrorist attacks. Armed with nuclear weapons and working to develop more effective and devastating delivery mechanisms, Pakistan is often portrayed as hapless and on the verge of imminent catastrophe. However, as noted South Asian affairs expert Stephen Cohen contends, this is not necessarily the case. Instead he argues that it is important to take a nuanced view of the issues surround- ing the idea of “state failure,” particularly before that term is applied to Pakistan. This book examines the factors contributing to state failure and asks whether they are present in the case of Pakistan. It also investigates the distinctive political and social institutions of the country, as well as the debates taking place within Pakistan, particularly following the 1999 coup, about the future of the country. Finally, Cohen scrutinizes evidence indicating a reversal of the prevailing trend of decline in Pakistan, and considers whether it is possible for this country to fulfill its promise of joining the community of nations as a functioning partner. Stephen Philip Cohen is a senior fellow in the Foreign Policy Studies program at the Brookings Institution. He is the author of several books on South Asia, including Nuclear Weapons and Conflict in South Asia  and India: Emerging Power.

Suettinger It has been thirteen years since soldiers of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) raced into the center of Beijing, and killed student demonstrators. The U.S. and other Western countries recoiled in disgust after the horrific incident, and the relationship between the US and China went from amity and strategic cooperation to hostility, distrust, and misunder- standing. According to Robert Suettinger, the calamity in Tiananmen Square marked a critical turning point in U.S.-China affairs. This book traces the turbulent bilateral relationship since that time, with a particular focus on the internal political factors that shaped it. Through a series of candid anecdotes and observations, Suettinger sheds light on the complex and confused decision-making process that affected relations between the US and China between 1989 and the end of the Clinton presidency in 2000. By illuminating the way domestic political ideas, beliefs, and prejudices affect foreign policymaking, Suettinger reveals policy deci- sions as outcomes of complex processes, rather than the results of grand strategic trends. He also refutes the view that strategic confron- tation between the superpowers is inevitable. Robert L. Suettinger served as East Asia national intelligence officer for the National Intelligence Council, Director of Asian affairs for the National Security Council, and in similar positions with the US Department of State and the CIA. 2003 556 pages, 6 x 9” hc $56.95, ISBN 0-8157-8206-3 Politics/Asian Studies RECENTLY RELEASED Yevgeny M. Primakov A World Challenged Fighting Terrorism in the Twenty-First Century In this candid account, former Russian premier Yevgeny M. Primakov considers the threats posed by independent terrorist organizations to international security. As the attacks of September 11 made clear, the course of international affairs is no longer shaped exclusively by cooperation and confrontation among nations. Yet, the way states respond to terrorism – including America’s war on terror – can have a profound impact on the structure of the international system. In Primakov’s view, coordinated responses to terrorism can limit its impact. However, he argues, a unilateral American approach to the problem of international terrorism could make such cooperation difficult. In this context, Primakov explains Russian concerns about the US war in Iraq – and reveals new details of his final personal attempt to persuade Saddam Hussein to step down. Primakov urges Russia and the US to join forces more readily to share information and intelligence about emerging terrorist threats. More broadly, he writes, if America is prepared to work within a “multi-polar world,” Russia can be a true and loyal partner. On the other hand, if the United States tries to go it alone, it could face the consequences in isolation. Yevgeny M. Primakov, one of Russia’s most distinguished statesmen, served as Russian premier from 1998 to 1999.

Average game attend- ance has fallen since the 1994 strike. Broad- cast rights disputes have created complica- tions for fans. However, new stadium facilities and the renewed excitement brought to the game by the shattered records of the late ’90s brought fans back. A strike was narrowly averted at the end of the 2002 season, a campaign that yielded one of the most exciting post-seasons yet, with the unlikely Anaheim Angels claiming the coveted World Series trophy. Beneath these encouraging developments, however, deep problems persist within Major League Baseball. This book explores the abuses and inefficiencies in the functioning of the baseball industry and how these problems are directly connected to Major League Baseball’s monopoly status, its presumed exemption from antitrust regulation, and public policy. May the Best Team Win provides a solid, hard-hitting analysis of the current state of America’s pastime. Easily accessible and highly informative, it is bound to become a standard reference tool for fans seeking a deeper understanding of the important issues underlying the game.

In this succinct, powerful survey of the world’s fastest-growing religion, Vartan Gregorian dispels these fears by focusing on Muslim diversity and division, and portraying the faith and its people as a mosaic, not a monolith. Beginning with an accessible overview of Islam through history, Gregorian concentrates on the historical struggle between modernists and traditionalists, interaction between religion and nationalism, and key developments that have caused bitter divisions among Muslim nations and states. Today, Islamist views range across the entire spectra of religious and political thought, and Islamism is anything but a unified movement. This book urges Westerners to distinguish between activist Islamist parties, which promote – sometimes violently – Islam as an ideology in a theocratic state, and Islamic parties, whose traditional members want their secular political systems to co-exist with the moral principles of their religion. Vartan Gregorian is president of the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

With Putin’s ascendancy to power, Russian leadership and Russia have changed dramatically. A pragmatic manager, Putin has tamed the Russian elite and arrogant tycoons, pushed forward economic reforms previously stalled under Yeltsin, and instituted a pro-Western foreign policy. He has accomplished all of this while maintain- ing an astonishing 70 percent approval rating. In Putin’s Russia, Lilia Shevtsova, one of Russia’s top political analysts and award-winning journalists, examines how, under Putin, the country vacillates between optimism and anguish, hope and resentment. She examines the true nature of Putin’s leadership and how far he is willing and capable to go with further transformation. 2003 298 pages, 6 x 9” pb $28.95, ISBN 0-87003-201-1 Politics/Slavic Studies Integrating China into the Global Economy Nicholas Lardy China’s accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) has been hailed as the biggest coming-out party in the history of capitalism.

Gaddy The Siberian Curse is a provocative look at a problem that has been overlooked since the collapse of the Soviet Union. In 1917, the Bolsheviks forcibly industrialized the gigantic landmass they inherited from the tsars. They deployed slave labor to build factories and cities, and operated industries in some of the most forbidding places on the planet. They then used costly incentives to attract new workers when the prison camps closed. Today, people and factories languish in places Communist planners put them – not where market forces would have attracted them. The book explains why this problem was not rectified in the 1990s, and why it is likely to persist. It concludes by considering ways in which Russian leaders should rethink the relationship between Russia, its economy, and its territory, espe- cially Siberia. 2003 303 pages, 6 x 9” pb $26.95, ISBN 0-8157-3645-2 Economics/Politics/Slavic Studies Engaging India Diplomacy, Democracy, and the Bomb Strobe Talbott From June 1998 to September 2000, following controversial nuclear testing by both India and Pakistan, Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott and Indian Minister of External Affairs Jaswant Singh met fourteen times in what was the most extensive dialogue ever between the United States and India. They discussed the security and nonproliferation agenda, as well as their wider visions for the US-India relationship and the potential for cooperation between the two coun- tries. As the relationship improved over the course of the talks, the US was able to play a role in averting the possibility of nuclear war over the contested territory of Kashmir – the specifics of which are included for the first time in this book. This book provides, for the first time, an accessible insider’s perspective on the ground-breaking efforts to build a cordial relationship between the United States and India.

He is the author of many articles and books on postal communication and social history. Chantal Amyot and John Willis Country Post Rural Postal Service in Canada, 1880 to 1945 The rural post office was once a vibrant institution of sociability and communication in Canada. Its impact was both tangible and inescapable. Everyone who lived in a rural community was touched by it. The mail was a necessity for anyone conducting business, running a farm or raising a family, no matter how far you lived “out of town.” As a mode of communication, the mail brought books, magazines, and newspapers that helped to shape the politics and culture of the country.  It brought letters, sometimes money, from friends and family away at work or at war. It brought parcels and care-pack- ages, some marked fragile, some containing good things to eat. In addition, mail order catalogues, postal savings banks, and the introduction of the money order all had a significant effect on the economies of rural and small-town Canada. Country Post strives to recreate the postal world of the period 1880 to 1945. Never before or since have postal communications had a more immediate impact on the lives of Canadians, transforming rural life well into the 20th century. Twenty-eight postmasters from all regions of Canada were interviewed for this book and their memories and insightful views provide a vivid picture of rural postal service. Their perspective is supported by a vast body of research presented in a readable and cogent text and complemented by over 200 pictures gathered from sources in every province of the country. Ban Seng Hoe Enduring Hardship The Chinese Laundry in Canada Faced with systematic discrimination in Canada, early Chinese immigrants had little choice but to create their own economic niche. From the turn of the twentieth century through the Second World War, a majority of Canada’s Chinese immigrants were laundry workers in towns and cities from coast to coast. Although the hand laundry was not a traditional trade in China, laundry work required little capital, and could be performed despite a lack of familiarity with Western languages and financial systems. The hours were long, the work was physically demand- ing, and most Chinese laundry workers lived a marginal existence – as poignantly evoked in this important new work. With the advent of modern laundry equipment and synthetic fibres in the 1950s, and the ageing of the laundrymen themselves, the Chinese hand laundry came to an end. To generations of Chinese-Canadians, however, it remains a symbol of hard work, sacrifice, and enduring hardship. » ALSO OF INTEREST Being Chinese Voices from the Diaspora Wei Djao pb $29.95 ISBN 0-8165-2302-9 University of Arizona Press 15F O R  M O R E  I N F O R M AT I O N  V I S I T  W W W.

Georges-Hébert Germain Adventurers in the New World The Saga of the Coureurs des Bois For almost three centuries, the coureurs des bois traveled the length and breadth of North America, finding their way through its trackless forests and paddling its vast network of lakes and rivers – essential skills that they had learned from the Aboriginal inhabitants. This book highlights the experience of these adventurers in the New World. Over 300 photographs and illustrations provide glimpses of the land and the life that they shared with their Indian brothers. The book introduces the donnés, pork eaters, winterers, and wagon men, inviting readers to accompany these guides, interpreters, voyageurs, hunters and trappers as they advance ever farther inland in pursuit of the beaver, braving the rivers in their birchbark canoes and traversing the frozen wilderness by dogsled and on snowshoes. As the coureurs des bois begin to mingle with the Indians, the readers follow their acculturation, from their horrendous initiation until their eventual adoption as full-fledged members of the tribe. On the Prairies, the mixed-blood descendants of these white Indians and their country wives developed a unique culture revolving around the buffalo and a democratic society founded on freedom, tolerance, and equality. The history of the Métis people and their struggle to defend their concept of a just society is an inspiring heritage that remains worthy of emulation to this day. 2003 160 pages, 9 x 10” 30 b/w and 70 colour illus. pb $45.00 ISBN 0-660-19088-5 Art Dr. Aïda Kaouk is a curator and researcher at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, and was curator of the original exhibition, The Lands within Me.

Thomas Dunlap Faith in Nature Environmentalism as Religious Quest The human impulse to religion – the drive to explain the world, humans, and humans’ place in the universe – can be seen to encompass environmentalism as an offshoot of the secular, material faith in human reason and power that dominates modern society. Faith in Nature traces the history of environmental- ism – and its moral thrust – from its roots in the Enlightenment and Romanticism, through the Progressive Era to the present. Drawing astonishing parallels between religion and environmentalism, the book examines the passion of the movement’s adherents and enemies alike, its concern with the moral conduct of daily life, and its attempt to answer fundamental questions about the underlying order of the world and of humanity’s place within it. Originally trained as a chemist, Thomas Dunlap is among the leading environmental historians and historians of science in the United States. He has a rigorous understand- ing of science and appreciates its vital importance to environmental thought. But he is also a devout practising Catholic who believes that the insights of religious revelation need not be necessarily at odds with the insights of scientific investigation. This book has grown from his own religious journey and his attempts to understand human ethical obligations and spiritual debts to the natural world. » ALSO OF INTEREST Landscaping for Wildlife in the Pacific Northwest Russell Link pb $45.95 ISBN 0-295-97820-1 17F O R  M O R E  I N F O R M AT I O N  V I S I T  W W W.

Milena Roth Lifesaving Letters A Child’s Flight from the Holocaust In 1939, in the shadow of Hitler’s occupation of Czechoslovakia, six-year-old Milena Roth was sent away from her home and her parents and taken to safety by what came to be known as the Kindertransport, which rescued ten thousand Jewish children from the Holocaust and placed them with guardians in England. Even at her young age, Milena was aware of the danger that surrounded her: “I knew I would die if I didn’t go.” Milena settled into the household of her mother’s English friend, who had agreed to take Milena in and who planned to bring her parents to England as well. For six years, she endured her foster mother’s complex ambiva- lence, as she waited for her parents to join her. It was only after the war that Milena learned their fate: deported from Czechoslovakia in July 1943, they died at Auschwitz. Whatever the faults of Milena’s guardian, she had been genuinely fond of Milena’s mother and preserved her friend’s letters. These she gave to Milena, and they form the heart of this book. The first letter dates from 1930; the last, written less than a year before Milena’s parents were captured and murdered, is heavy with “an air of despairing farewell,” an under- standing that escape was no longer possible. As an adult, Milena Roth spent many years piecing together the fate of her family and making sense of her life. In this book, drawing on her mother’s poignant letters and on her own memories and experiences, she recounts the challenges of integrating, in adulthood, the wounds and bereavements of childhood and of “regaining the confidence of my place in the universe that had been lost.” “I can see her now – a small woman in a blue dress, sitting barefoot on the roof of the after- cabin of a trading schooner in the South Seas. Her Panama hat, set at a rakish angle, shades a face of breath-taking beauty. She is holding a large silvered revolver in each hand, shoot- ing sharks with deadly accuracy as they are caught and hauled to the taffrail by excited sailors.” – Austin Strong on Fanny Stevenson, “The Most Unforgettable Character I’ve Met” In April 1890 the steamer Janet Nichol set off from Sydney for a three-month trading voyage through the central and western Pacific. Aboard were seven European men, a crew of forty islanders, and one woman: a short-haired, barefoot, cigarette-smoking American, Fanny Van de Grift Stevenson, wife of Robert Louis Stevenson. The Cruise of the Janet Nichol among the South Sea Islands is Fanny’s account of her journey with her husband and grown son through what are today the Cook Islands, Tuvalu, Kiribati, and the Marshall Islands. Fanny Stevenson’s spirited personality led her into scenes and situations few Europeans, and even fewer European women, had experienced. Her diary and its photographs offer unique glimpses of life in some of the last independent Pacific kingdoms and those just coming under colonial rule at the end of the nineteenth century. This extraordinary travel book is the story of an unconventional woman, her unusual marriage, and her adventurous journey through a rapidly changing Pacific world. » ALSO OF INTEREST The River of Angry Dogs A Memoir Mira Hamermesh hc $39.95 ISBN 0-7453-2233-6 Pluto Press (see p. 22) » ALSO OF INTEREST Undelivered Letters to Hudson’s Bay Company Men on the Northwest Coast of America, 1830-57 Judith Hudson Beattie and Helen M.

But the subtext is how Indonesia, frequently in the news for terrorist acts by Islamic extremists, draws much of its cultural heritage from the Hindu and Buddhist beliefs that crossed the ocean from India.” – The New York Times Sari to Sarong brings together some of the greatest surviving examples of traditional Indian and Indonesian textiles to demonstrate the remarkable exchanges of ideas, materials, designs, and imagery – royal and religious – between the two great cultures of India and Indonesia over the last thousand years. The publication shows not only the great variety and beauty of the cloths but also the many sources of inspiration carried across the Indian Ocean by sailors and merchants, priests and warriors. Drawn from the National Gallery of Australia’s famous Asian textiles collection, the silks, cottons, batiks, gold brocades, tie-dyes, and embroideries feature Ramayana epics, elephant and camel processions, trading ship and floral designs from Indian chintz. 2003 224 pages, 225 colour illus., 9½ x 11½” pb $63.95, ISBN 0-642-54113-2 Textiles National Gallery of Australia UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON PRESS Christine Giles and Dave Hickey Introduction by David Hockney Icons and Legends The Photographs of Michael Childers Icons and Legends documents the career of American photographer Michael Childers.

This volume samples thirty years of his painting and graphic work; it includes images of such diverse natural features as towering Alaskan glaciers and rushing Oregon waterfalls. An avid outdoorsman, Cole usually includes hiking, camping, and fishing as well as painting and drawing in his excursions. Decades of these trips into the wilderness have given him an intimate familiarity with the landscape. This deep understanding of nature is clearly communicated in his paintings. Cole’s bold colour combinations and abstracted shapes convey the essence of the region’s beauty. As shown in the abundant colour plates and profiled in the essay by Deloris Tarzan Ament, Cole delves deeply into the enduring Northwest landscape.

C A The Hidden Web Finding Quality Information on the Net Maureen Henninger In just a few years a generation has grown up believing that everything can be found on the Web, and indeed there are now more than two billion documents in cyberspace, not including the 550 billion documents that can be accessed via the “deep” or “invisible” Web. But how do you separate high quality, authori- tative information from all the dross? It seems that the difficulties of finding valid information on the Web are growing as fast as the Internet itself. New search tools appear every few weeks and the familiar ones are constantly evolving. Effective searching in this ever- expanding environment requires new strate- gies. Maureen Henninger assumes that for most readers the Internet is no longer a mystery, and that the finding of quality information has become a major concern. So often it is the valuable that remains hidden to Web users, even very experienced ones, and it is the role of The Hidden Web to provide strategies for uncovering worthwhile information, whether it is an HTML document, a paper buried deep within a public website, or a full-text document in a publicly accessible database. Maureen Henninger is author of Don’t Just Surf: Effective Research Strategies for the Net.

Life and Work is a brilliant contribution to the debate on this issue: it’s a road map to a needed transformation in the workplace, and a truly thought-provoking read.” – Paul R. Ehrlich, Stanford University To get higher profits we need to work harder and longer. Right? Wrong! In this original look at the working lives of employees, managers, and executives, Charles Birch and David Paul propose a new agenda for achieving a sensible work/life balance. Their basic message is that if companies get their relationships with employees and custom- ers right, profits follow as a matter of course. Too many organizations fixate on the bottom line and are insensitive to the needs and dignity of individuals. Charles Birch, emeritus professor of the University of Sydney and winner of the prestigious Templeton Prize, has published many books on ecology and the philosophy of biology. David Paul has worked with banks and government organizations and has been an adjunct lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney Graduate School of Business. 2003 208 pages, 6 x 9” pb $29.95, ISBN 0-86840-670-8 Business/Economics University of New South Wales Press UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON PRESS Stuart Rees; Foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu Passion for Peace Exercising Power Creatively “Stuart Rees speaks to a wide public of citizens whatever their cultural allegiances, occupations, or religious beliefs. If the vision which characterizes this ‘passion for peace’ spread like an epidemic, universal human rights could be attained and the well-being of a common humanity would be assured.” – Archbishop Desmond Tutu Engaging and optimistic, Passion for Peace shows how the creative use of power contrib- utes to peace with justice in any context or country. A book about current affairs, such as the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine, Passion for Peace explores the idea of resolving conflict through peaceful rather than violent means. As examples, Rees considers charismatic leaders who have used non-violence as a means of promoting civil and human rights, justice and democracy. In addition, however, Rees goes beyond international affairs and the big questions of the day. He makes the case that individuals can also develop a passion for peace, and use it every day in their personal and working relationships. Inspirational quotes enhance his discussion of this creative power, and strengthen his appeal to redefine sovereignty by challenging any fundamentalism – including countries’ preoccupation with nationalism, religious dogmatism or border protection. 2003 164 pages, 5½ x 8½” pb $33.95, ISBN 0-86840-750-X Current Affairs/Spirituality University of New South Wales Press 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 PLUTO PRESS 2003 256 pages, 6 x 8” pb $25.95 ISBN 0-7453-2199-2 Current Affairs Milan Rai is the author of War Plan Iraq, co- founder of ARROW (Active Resistance to the Roots of War) – a UK direct-action affinity group – as well as co- founder of Voices in the Wilderness UK, which worked for the lifting of UN sanctions in Iraq. Milan Rai Regime Unchanged “This is a magnificent exposé of the lies that propelled the criminal attack on Iraq.” – John Pilger Milan Rai’s previous book became an interna- tional bestseller in the run up to war. Regime Unchanged picks up where War Plan Iraq left off: it is a shocking, brilliantly persuasive account of the conflict and its aftermath that is essential reading for anyone who cares about peace and democracy. Regime Unchanged shows how the United States government has involved itself in a political quagmire in Iraq, which threatens to evolve into a long and bloody conflict. As the number of US casualties rise every day, and fighting continues, the idea that the war has been won has begun to fade. The longer the chaos continues, the more the conflict threatens to engulf other regions already bitterly opposed to American intervention. Rigorously dissecting official propaganda and media misrepresentation, Regime Unchanged documents the real aftermath of the war. Milan Rai presents damning evidence that Ba’athists were deliberately restored to power. In the confusion of the first month of Iraq’s “libera- tion,” the US and Britain pursued a path very similar to that taken in liberated territories after WWII: demobilization of resistance movements and the restoration of collabora- tors and fascists. A shocking exposé, Regime Unchanged demonstrates that this was not a war for disarmament, or for “regime change,” but a war for power.

Ahmed Fekry is a Middle East Times journalist. Montasser al-Zayyat Translated by Ahmed Fekry; Edited by Sara Nimis Introduction by Ibrahim M. Abu-Rabi’ The Road to Al-Qaeda The Story of Bin Laden’s Right-Hand Man The Road to Al-Qaeda is a controversial book. Written by an Egyptian human rights lawyer, it is the first English-language account of the development of tensions between violent and non-violent factions in radical Islamist move- ments, from the perspective of an insider. It is also a biography of one of the world’s most- wanted terrorists: Egyptian-born Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri. Widely recognized as the man who will take over the leadership of Al-Qaeda after Osama bin Laden, he is also the reputed architect of the Riyadh bombings in Saudi Arabia. The original version of this book sold widely across the Arabic world. Reproduced in translation here, with an extensive introduction from distinguished scholar Ibrahim Abu Rabi’, it stands alone as an unrivalled account of the divisions within militant Islamist ideology. The author provides insight into the internal politics of Islamic Jihad, and the radicalization of bin Laden’s deputy; he examines Zawahiri’s opposition to efforts by other militant Islamists to call a ceasefire with the Egyptian authori- ties; and he narrates the redirection of Zawahiri’s activities towards the US and Israel. As an insight into one of the key minds behind Al-Qaeda, this book makes unparalleled and disturbing reading. It is an important document for anyone who seeks to understand how a minority extremist ideology came to have such an impact on world events. » ALSO OF INTEREST The Pre-Emptive Empire A Guide to Bush’s Kingdom Saul Landau pb $38.95 ISBN 0-7453-2140-2 » ALSO OF INTEREST Modern Jihad Tracing the Dollars Behind the Terror Networks Loretta Napoleoni hc $38.95 ISBN 0-7453-2117-8 21F O R  M O R E  I N F O R M AT I O N  V I S I T  W W W.

Robert Hinde and Joseph Rotblat Foreword by Robert S. McNamara War No More Eliminating Conflict in the Nuclear Age Never before have so many people worried about the effects of military conflict. At a time when terrorism is opening the way for new forms of warfare worldwide, this book provides a much-needed account of the real dangers we face, and argues that the elimination of weapons of mass destruction and of war are attainable and necessary goals. Written by Nobel Peace prizewinner and former nuclear physicist Joseph Rotblat, and biologist/psychologist Robert Hinde, War No More provides expert insight into the nature of modern warfare – including “weapons of mass destruction.” Examining the key factors that are believed to contribute to conflict, they explain how best to approach a peaceful future. If war is ever to be eliminated, Hinde and Rotblat argue that we must address key issues such as the gap between rich and poor; we must have fully effective arms controls; and above all we must have better education. The authors emphasize that the United Nations – as well as non-governmental organizations, religious groups, and grassroots movements – also have important parts to play. Patrick Herman and Richard Kuper for the Confédération Paysanne Introduction by José Bové The French radical farmers union Confédération Paysanne, with its charismatic leader José Bové, has led the world in demonstrating the possibility of a socially progressive future for farming. Rejecting the increasing intensifica- tion and industrialization of agriculture, the Confédération has argued for the need for local food production by small, independent farmers – both for the sake of the quality of the food we consume and to support the kind of societies we want to live in. Originally published in French, Food for Thought has been expanded and adapted for an English-speaking audience. Patrick Herman and Richard Kuper demonstrate how the European Union’s Common Agricultural Policy and now the WTO’s Agreement on Agriculture are both designed to encourage an increas- ingly free-market, profit-maximizing, destruc- tive agriculture. The majority of farmers have lost out and continue to lose. Agri-business thrives at their expense. The consequences are dire in terms of social and environmental costs in the industrialized world, and devastat- ing for developing countries, whose ability to feed themselves is being destroyed. This book describes and celebrates alternative ways of thinking about and doing farming. Showing how some farmers with an alternative vision are trying to change the face of farming, Food for Thought holds out the possibility of a radical, human-centred way of producing our food and organizing our society.

Based on first-hand information from international human rights groups and NGO workers in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, it also features interviews with children who have been imprisoned. The result is a disturbing and often shocking account of the abuses that are being carried out by Israel, and that have been widely documented by human rights groups such as Amnesty, but yet have never been addressed by the international community. The book presents a critical analysis of the international legal framework and the UN system, arguing that a major failure of these institutions is their appeal to neutrality while ignoring the reality of power. The book attempts to address the inadequacy of these institutions by placing the issue of Palestinian child prisoners within the framework of Israeli strategy and the overall system of control. Adam Hanieh was Research Co-ordinator for Defence for Children International/Palestine Section in Ramallah on the West Bank (2000-2002) where Catherine Cook has worked as International Advocacy Co-ordinator.

Essays examine the role of money in politics – assessing the regulation of political party financing, suggesting ways to “rewire” the arms and oil trades for greater transparency and analyzing the problem of vote buying. Reports consider attempts to repatriate assets stolen by politicians, disclosure regulations, the nexus between the media, politics, and business as well as the issue of immunity from prosecution. This year’s GCR also features special contribu- tions by Jimmy Carter and former UN human rights commissioner Mary Robinson, who argues that “corruption hits hardest at the poorest in society.” Transparency International is the only non- governmental organization devoted to combatting corruption. With 90 offices around the world, it works at a national and international level to bring govern- ments, businesses, and civil society together to raise awareness about corruption, and to advocate policy reforms.

To be Polish without nation, Jewish without family, hunted down in a land at war – and to be a genius in the making – well, it's not the normal teenager’s life. Mira Hamermesh sees past and present with a film-maker’s flawless eye, in this shattering written memorial to those she loved and lost.” – Fay Weldon Mira Hamermesh is an award-winning film- maker, painter, and writer. This moving memoir gives a vivid account of her remarkable life. As a young Jewish teenager she escaped the horrors of German-occupied Poland with only her natural creativity, a rebellious spirit, and a talent for good fortune to rely on. Of the millions of words written about WWII, few come from women, and even fewer recount such adventure. Spared the experience of the ghetto and the concentration camp that claimed most of her family, Mira’s story is a life-affirming account of a life lived to the full, and a meditation on survival and coincidence, that pays homage to other people’s courage. Mira Hamermesh was born in Lodz, Poland. As a filmmaker she has won may international awards including the Prix Italia and the Royal Television Society Award. She has been a visiting lecturer at the National Film School and the Australian Film School.

Was it all true? Where are the weapons of mass destruction? This book is for everyone who is appalled by the duplicity and misinformation churned out by the media in the lead up to war with Iraq, and in its long and continuing aftermath. Written by some of the world’s leading journalists and commentators, it’s a scathing indictment of the media’s role in creating public support for a war which, day by day, is taking a heavy toll in coalition and Iraqi lives, and which threatens to create further instability and resentment of the US throughout the Middle East. Critics, activists and journalists from both sides of the Atlantic destroy the idea that the mainstream media have anything to do with objectivity and balance. The propaganda machinery in the Iraq war is exposed as fundamentally dishonest and as a significant threat to freedom of thought and expression. Drawing on the experience of leading anti-war and media activists, Tell Me Lies provides indispensable analysis and guidance on how to resist the media war. » ALSO OF INTEREST The Media and the War on Terrorism Stephen Hess and Marvin Kalb, eds. pb $32.95 ISBN 0-8157-3581-2 Brookings Institution Press (see p.12) 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 OF MICHIGAN PRESS MAY 235 pages est., 8½ x 11” 11 patterns, 120 illus. pb $29.95 ISBN 0-472-06855-5 Biography/Crafts & Hobbies Gwen Marston is a nationally known quilt maker, teacher, and author.

Unique to this book is author Beresford- Kroeger’s concept of bioplanning, in which the gardener views the site as a biological system and the activity of gardening as an ecological task. To assist in bioplanning a garden, the author provides both plans that are adaptable to different garden sizes and shapes, as well as planting instructions emphasizing organic care, ecofunction, and environmentally friendly means of pest control. A Garden for Life challenges everyone to create an ecologically valuable garden for the joy of doing so, and for the salvation of our natural world. Gwen Marston Extensively illustrated, with over 100 drawings and 11 unique Mary Schafer patterns, Mary Schafer, American Quilt Maker is a must-have book for anyone passionate about American quilting. While we take that passion for granted today, author Gwen Marston shows that it wasn’t always so; indeed, one woman, Mary Schafer, was largely responsible for the restoration of interest in one of the greatest folk arts – long before the American bicentennial turned quilting into what seemed like an overnight sensation. Marston presents the picture of Schafer as an unassuming scholar: the anonymous quilter, remaining humble and somewhat retiring. Behind the modest façade, however, Schafer displayed a remarkable devotion to research, historical accuracy, and community through her efforts to make quilting available to as many people as possible. Nonquilters will find Mary Schafer, American Quilt Maker a welcome addition to their collection of the work of masters of American folk art, while quilting aficionados will appreci- ate it not only for the story it tells, but for the generous selection of patterns and illustrations it offers.

Early tells the story of the historical and cultural conditions that made this record company possible, including the dramatic shifts in American popular music, changes in race relations and racial attitudes, and the rise of a black urban population.

Organized by fish family, with sections on waters of the Great Lakes region, zoogeography, field study and collection, preservation of fishes for study, fish identifica- tion, anatomy, terminology, and more, Fishes of the Great Lakes is comprehensive in its scope and breadth of information – truly the classic work on Great Lakes fishes. It also documents a half century of changes in fish population in the region that have resulted from pollution, development, and the introduction of non-native species. This edition will thus inspire future generations of anglers and students to take a fresh look at one of our most important fauna.

The maps, the range of accessible and informed essays, make it invaluable.” – Gary Snyder, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and ecological restorationist Along the Pacific coast of North America, the fates of people and salmon have been intertwined since the end of the last Ice Age. Salmon Nation leads readers deep into the watersheds of the West Coast in the company of six knowledgeable guides to better under- stand the most celebrated fish of western North America. Thoughtful essays by Native American writer Elizabeth Woody, fisheries biologist Jim Lichatowich, journalist Richard Manning, former commercial fisherman Freeman House, and environmental writer Seth Zuckerman trace the relationship be- tween people and salmon from the abundance that sustained Northwest Coast cultures to the troubled world of salmon today, and depict a future of rivers restored and fishing livelihoods revived – a future still within our reach. Geographer Dorie Roth’s full-colour maps of the state of Pacific salmon today offer a powerful “big-picture” perspective that lends a new urgency to efforts to heal the breach between people and salmon. Though imperiled across much of their range, salmon populations can rebound when people mend their ways. With words, maps, and images, Salmon Nation invites its readers home to a place where people and fish can thrive together. Robert S. Yeats In 2001, earthquake preparedness in the Northwest was tested by the Nisqually earthquake, which damaged Seattle and Olympia. In this revised edition, Yeats de- scribes that earthquake and the planning that worked and didn’t work. Combining cutting-edge research with practical safety information, Living with Earthquakes: • updates knowledge about the likelihood of future earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest; • explores topics ranging from earthquake forecasting and catastrophe insurance to the risks of tsunamis and soil liquefaction; • reviews the current level of earthquake preparedness and disaster response; • suggests actions that citizens can take to protect their families and homes. An essential guide for anyone interested in understanding earthquake science or in preparing for the next major tremor, Living with Earthquakes is also a call to action. Earthquakes cannot be prevented, but this book shows how society can learn to live with earthquakes – and survive them.

Dempsey is the author of Ruin and Recovery: Michigan’s Rise as a Conservation Leader and teaches environmental policy and law at Michigan State University. Dave Dempsey On the Brink The Great Lakes in the 21st Century Dave Dempsey weaves the natural character and phenomena of the Great Lakes and stories of the schemes, calamities, and unusual human residents of the Basin with the history of their environmental exploitation and recov- ery. Contrasting the incomparable beauty and complexity of the Lakes and the poetry, folklore, and citizen action they have inspired with the disasters that short-sighted human folly has inflicted on the ecosystem, Dempsey makes this history both engaging and relevant to today’s debates and decisions. Underlying the neglectful treatment of the Lakes are two irreconcilable and faulty human assumptions: that the Lakes are a system so big that human beings cannot do it great harm, and that the Lakes are a resource that can be bent to the will of humankind. Dempsey finds evidence that, despite great changes in the laws governing the Lakes and public attitudes toward them in the last fifty years, government policy and institutions are still dominated by these dangerous attitudes. A central theme of On the Brink is that citizens, who have displayed an increasing sense of commitment to the Lakes and a growing sense of place, must challenge their leaders to reform Great Lakes institutions. Dempsey shows that it is necessary to create a governing system that reflects the realities of life “on the ground” in communities and that taps into the passion and determination of citizens to protect these treasures. Ana G. Valenzuela-Zapata and Gary Paul Nabhan Tequila – more properly, mescal de tequila – was the first mescal to be codified and recognized by its geographic origin and is the only one known internationally by that name.  In this book, the leading agronomist in Mexico’s tequila industry and one of America’s most respected ethnobotanists plumb the myth of tequila as they introduce the natural history, economics, and cultural significance of the blue agave plant cultivated for its production. Valenzuela-Zapata and Nabhan take readers into the agave fields of Mexico to convey their passion for the “century plant” and its popular by-product. They trace tequila’s progress from its modest beginnings to one of the world’s favoured spirits, reveal how the cultivation of tequila azul is maintained through traditional techniques passed down over generations, tell how innovations from cross-cultural exchanges made fortunes for José Cuervo and other distillers, and educate readers about the grades of tequila, from blanco to añejo. ¡Tequila! A Natural and Cultural History will feed anyone’s passion for the gift of the blue agave as it heightens their appreciation for its rich heritage. ¡Tequila!

Richard Fagerlund and Johnna Strange The Bugman on Bugs Understanding Household Pests and the Environment This sequel to the authors’ Ask the Bugman (2002) contains more valuable information on how to identify assorted insects and arthropods and the best ways to keep them out of your house, all presented with Fagerlund’s trademark wry humour. Fagerlund and Strange are proponents of Integrated Pest Management rather than the technique they label “Spray and Pray” used by most extermi- nating businesses. Anyone concerned about the health effects of pesticides will want to follow the useful advice in The Bugman on Bugs, including specific information on what kinds of substances and techniques work best for particular pests. In addition to illustrated chapters on roaches, ants, flies, spiders, centipedes and scorpions, fleas, lice, bed bugs, mice, termites, and other kinds of pests, the authors discuss human reactions to these creatures, turning their attention both to phobias and to the place of insects in our religious and spiritual lives. Amazing pest control tales are sprinkled throughout the book (have you thought about greasing your linens with hog lard to make yourself disgusting even to fleas?), as well as peculiar facts and even a recipe for sautéed termites. Gordon M. Wickstrom Fishing is a pursuit for which writers have had an affinity as far back as Izaak Walton, and Walton’s spirit hovers over this collection of musings by well-known literary fisherman Gordon Wickstrom. These writings use fishing as a lens through which to view and evaluate most things in life: politics, art, friendship, religion, globalization, relations between the sexes, time, seasonality, and old age. The result is a book that will lift your spirits even when it expresses annoyance with the technol- ogy-obsessed graphite rod fly fishermen and looks back on a golden age when it was acceptable to use grasshoppers as bait. Wickstrom does not confine himself to philosophizing. He discusses technical matters such as equipment and techniques. He reviews the literature. He addresses the sticky issues of nativism and catch-and-release-ism.  In short, he writes about all the things that matter to people who love to fish, and those people will be grateful to him for having produced a book they can read when they are not fishing.

She is the author of several previous books on the American Jewish experience. Sylvia Barack Fishman Double or Nothing? Jewish Families and Mixed Marriage If intermarriage is a blessing, North American Jews are among the prime beneficiaries. Recent statistical studies show that about half of all recent marriages involving a Jew have been to non-Jews. Many of these Jews maintain at least some ties to their own ethnoreligious heritage. At the same time, very few of the non-Jews marrying Jewish men and women today convert to Judaism. The same cultural tolerance that nurtures mixed marriage also promotes the idea that each partner can maintain his or her own distinctive, premarriage identity. Thus, the homes they form include two religious identities, and, often, two or more ethnic identities. Drawing on more than 250 original interviews with mixed-married men and women, focus group discussions with their teenaged children, materials produced by communal, secular, and religious organizations, and conferences, books, and films created by and for interfaith audiences, Fishman examines family dynamics in mixed-married households. She looks at the responses of Jewish and non-Jewish family and friends. She investigates how the “December dilemma” plays itself out in diverse mixed Jewish households and explores popular cultural depictions of mixed marriages in fiction, film, television, and in material artifacts such as the “Mixed Message Greeting Card Company.” Olaf Stapledon Edited with an introduction by Patrick McCarthy Foreword by Freeman J. Dyson “A buried treasure of 20th century literature reemerges in this splendid and practical edition. McCarthy’s revealing introduction and notes display the genius of Star Maker to a new century.” – Robert Crossley, author of Olaf Stapledon: Speaking for the Future Widely regarded as one of the true classics of science fiction, Star Maker is a poetic and deeply philosophical work. The story details the mental journey of an unnamed narrator, who is transported not only to other worlds but also other galaxies and parallel universes, until he eventually becomes part of the “cosmic mind.” First published in 1937, Olaf Stapledon’s descriptions of alien life are a political commentary on human life in the turbulent inter-war years. The book challenges preconceived notions of intelligence and awareness, and ultimately argues for a broadened perspective that would free us from culturally ingrained thought and our inevitable anthropomorphism. This is the first scholarly edition of a book that influenced such writers as C.S. Lewis and Arthur C. Clarke and which Jorge Luis Borges called “a prodigious novel.” Star Maker » ALSO OF INTEREST Celebrating the Jewish Holidays Poems, Stories, Essays Steven J.

Michael Eigen The Sensitive Self “Michael Eigen teaches by example. In this remarkable work he lets us feel our aliveness by showing us his own. He is a creative force in psychoanalysis: vulgar, frightening, fearless and inspiring.” – Mark Epstein, M.D., author of Thoughts Without a Thinker We are all sensitive beings, both physically and emotionally. What do we do with our sensitivity? How much of our sensitivity can we take? How do we become partners with our sensitivity in ways that make life worthwhile? In The Sensitive Self, renowned psychologist Michael Eigen explores the varied nuances of sensitivity as it threads its way through all facets of our lives. Individual case studies, often achingly honest, are woven together by Eigen’s deeply felt meditations, bringing us into the heart of psychotherapy. We see how our sensitivity to self and others plays a crucial role in sustaining our sense of aliveness. Ultimately, Eigen argues, sensitivity is the basis for a humane ethics. Powerful and illuminating, The Sensitive Self follows up on the themes of Eigen’s previous books, Rage and Ecstasy, with which Eigen has established himself as one of today’s most creative thinkers in psychology.

BERIT KRAUS: SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATOR April 14, 1942 – November 3, 2003 Much is made of the premise that scholarly communication is the driving force behind scholarly books and journals, but in this editorially-driven environment, the engine of that communication process, the marketing of scholarly books, is usually given short shrift and takes a back seat to the editorial role. Without effective marketing it is impossible to communicate the ideas contained in the books we publish. For 20 of UBC Press’ 32 years, one of its most important resources was the intellectual and emotional commitment of Berit Kraus to promoting its books. Her devotion to the scholarly works that the Press published was exceptional, and her loyalty to the Press and its authors has been unwavering. Like our books, Berit’s catalogues were meticulously crafted: each page an expression of extraordinary integrity. She never let her standards slip towards even a hint of hyperbole. There was never a misplaced ISBN or a wrong initial in an author’s name, and every word was carefully considered and the product of a careful reading of the manuscript and the reviewers’ notes. Berit was not without contradictions. On one hand, she was the picture of Scandinavian precision and order, a baker of perfect delicate little delights and a disciplined runner. But even in a world of publishers and academic strewn with papers and books, her office was a monument to chaos. There should have been avalanche warnings at the entrance. Generous to a fault, Berit was always willing to give a colleague the benefit of the doubt or a second chance. Most importantly she was a devoted wife to Alan, a mother to Per and Kajsa, and grandmother to Nathalie, Stella, and Linnea. And a very brave woman. All of us at the Press shared a little bit of her pain as she struggled against the scourge of brain cancer that so suddenly assailed her in the summer of 2000. We marveled at her resilience and shared the joy of her recovery as twice she fought back and seemed to triumph. Losing her has been a great blow to all of us. Berit was an important pioneer of scholarly publishing in western Canada. She was also the dearly loved matriarch of our little family of authors and publishers. We will miss her. R.
