1Hidden AgendasHow Journalists Influence the NewsIn our news-hungry society, where CNN is considered a stapleof primetime viewing, journalists have become celebrities andoften, political proxies. To a large degree, our world is shapedby their commentaries on everything from war to health careto trade. Hidden Agendas: How Journalists Influence the Newsis a no-holds-barred expos? of how the opinions of reportersdecidedly shape the information that we consider news.Focusing primarily on the political orientation of journalists,Miljan and Cooper investigate the link between what journalistsbelieve about politics and how they report political issues. Usingdata gathered from interviews with over 800 Canadians andsome 270 journalists, the authors compare how the attitudesof journalists differ from those of the general population, andhow the journalists? opinions influence the daily news. Byexamining the way they respond to questions on the economy,social issues, and national unity, and comparing these re-sponses with how the stories were reported in Canadian newsoutlets, the book arrives at the controversial conclusion thatjournalists, more so than the owners of the media, are thearchitects of the news, engineering not only its drama, but alsoits ideological thrust.A must-read for anyone interested in politics and the media, thisbook will appeal to journalists, politicians, academics, and allCanadians who are concerned about the hidden agendas of themen and women who bring us the news.Lydia Miljan and Barry Cooper are both professors of politicalscience. They teach at the University of Windsor and the Universityof Calgary, respectively.SEPTEMBER188 pages est., 6 x 9?hc $85.00ISBN 0-7748-1019-Xpb $24.95ISBN 0-7748-1020-3Communications/Media Studies/Current Events?[The media] seem to be nothing in themselves, and often say that they merely report what goes on.  In truth, theydo nothing on their own; they act in the manner of a compassionate passerby who sees an accident in the street andrushes to see if someone else can be of any assistance. But the media greatly affect how we regard government.??

A comprehensive assessment of thestrengths and weaknesses of Canadianenvironmental law, the book provides abalanced, critical examination of Canada?srecord, focusing on laws and policies intendedto protect water, air, land, and biodiversity.Three decades of environmental laws haveproduced progress in a number of importantareas, such as ozone depletion, protectedareas, and some kinds of air and waterpollution. However, Canada?s overall recordremains poor. In this vital and timely study,David Boyd explores the reasons why somelaws and policies foster progress while othersfail.

All play a role in this captivatingexporation of the ?Holy Roller? sect led by Franz Creffield in theearly years of the twentieth century. Creffield, a charismatic,self-styled messiah, taught his followers to forsake the worldli-ness of material goods and their families and seek only salva-tion. As his teachings became more extreme, the local commu-nity reacted by tarring and feathering him and incarcerating hismainly female followers in an asylum and other institutions.Creffield himself was imprisoned after a conviction for adultery,but revived the sect shortly after his release.George Mitchell, the brother of two of Creffield?s female follow-ers, pursued him to Seattle and shot him dead. In a trial thatmade headlines across the United States, Mitchell was acquit-ted, ostensibly on the basis of insanity but in reality due to the?unwritten law? that justified killing in defence of a femalerelative who had been sexually ?wronged.? Mitchell himself wasthen murdered two days after his acquittal by his own sister,Esther, whom he had claimed to be defending. In a final twist tothis gripping story, Esther did not stand trial for the murder ofher brother but was placed in the asylum, ultimately taking herown life by poison a few years later.In this fascinating story, Phillips and Gartner explore the rela-tionships among formal and informal law, gender relations, andreligious repression. Murdering Holiness will appeal to thosewith an interest in crime and punishment, as well as readers ofPacific Northwest history.Jim Phillips is a professor at the Centre of Criminology andFaculty of Law at the University of Toronto.

BussUndelivered Letters to Hudson?s BayCompany Men on the Northwest Coastof America, 1830-57In the early nineteenth century, when theHudson?s Bay Company sent men to its furth-est posts along the coast of North America?sPacific Northwest, the letters of those whocared for those men followed them in theCompany?s supply ships. Sometimes, theseletters missed their objects - the men hadreturned to Britain, or deserted their ships,or died. The Company returned the corre-spondence to its London office and over theyears amassed a file of ?undelivered letters.?Many of these remained sealed for 150 yearsuntil they were opened by archivist JudithHudson Beattie, when the Company archiveswere moved to Canada.These letters tell the fascinating stories ofordinary people whose lives are rarely re-counted in traditional histories. Beattie andHelen M. Buss skilfully introduce us to both thelives of the letter writers and their would-berecipients. Their commentaries frame, forcontemporary readers, the words of earlynineteenth-century working- and middle-classBritish folk as well as letters to ?voyageurs?from Quebec. The stories of their lives -fathers struggling to support a family, widowedmothers yearning to see their sons, bereftsweethearts left behind, and wives raising theirchildren alone - reach out over two centuriesto offer rare insight into the varied worlds ofmen and women of the nineteenth century,many of whom became settlers in Washington,Oregon, and the new British colony of Vancou-ver Island.Julia HarrisonBeing a TouristFinding Meaning in Pleasure TravelWhat is meaningful about the experienceof travelling abroad? What feeds the impulseto explore new horizons? In Being a Tourist,Harrison analyzes her conversations with alarge group of upper-middle-class travellers.Why, she asks, do these people invest theirresources -- financial, emotional, psychologi-cal, and physical -- in this activity? Suggestingthat they are fuelled by a search for intimacyand connection, an expression of personalaesthetic, an exploration of the understandingof ?home,? and a sensemaking strategy fora globalized world, Harrison reflects on themoral and political complexities of the travelsof these people.Being a Tourist draws on a wide range ofsocial theory, going beyond current debatesof authenticity and consumption.

Astonishingly, until now noone has consulted the large federal govern-ment archives that contain first-hand accountsof the disaster and the response of nationalauthorities.Canada?s recently established navy was at theepicentre of the crisis. Armstrong reveals thenavy?s compelling, and little-known, story bycarefully retracing the events preceding thedisaster and the role of the military in itsaftermath. He catches the pulse of disasterresponse in official Ottawa and provides acompelling analysis of the legal manoeuvres,rhetoric, blunders, public controversy, andcrisis management that ensued. His disturbingconclusion is that federal officials knew ofpotential dangers in the harbour before theexplosion, took no corrective action, and keptthe information from the public. As a result,a Halifax naval officer was made a scapegoatand the navy received lasting, and mostlyundeserved, vilification.This is a compelling read not only for militaryand naval devotees but for anyone who wantsto understand one of the events that shapedCanada in the twentieth century.The extended peace the world anticipatedfollowing the decisive Allied victory in theSecond World War was abruptly shatteredin June 1950 by the invasion of South Koreaby communist North Korea.  Responding toa United Nations call to assist the SouthKorean regime, Canada deployed an 8000-man brigade to the peninsula to fight as partof an American-led UN force.This comprehensive account of the Canadiancampaign in Korea provides the first detailedstudy of the training, leadership, operations,and tactics of the brigade under each of itsthree wartime commanders as well as itsrelationship with American and Commonwealthallies. An impeccably researched analyticalhistory, the book examines the unevenperformance of the various Canadian unitsand argues that the soldiers of the ?SpecialForce? initially sent to Korea were morethorough and professional in their operationsthan were the army?s regular battalions thateventually replaced them at the front.In this, the 50th anniversary of the armisticein Korea, the revisionist interpretations ofA War of Patrols will attract both academicand military professionals, as well as generalreaders interested in a fresh look at animportant part of Canada?s military past.The Halifax Explosionand the Royal Canadian NavyInquiry and IntrigueJohn Griffith ArmstrongSTUDIES IN CANADIAN MILITARY HISTORYPublished in association with theCanadian War MuseumRECENTLY RELEASEDA War of PatrolsCanadian Army Operations in KoreaWilliam JohnstonSTUDIES IN CANADIAN MILITARY HISTORYPublished in association with theCanadian War MuseumUBC PRESSWWW.UBCPRESS.CA/MILITARYHISTORYThe Halifax Explosionand the Royal CanadianNavy has beenshortlisted for twoAtlantic Book Awards:?

Of ?mixed-blood? Cherokee heritage, he was adopted asan adult by the prestigious Kwakiutl Sewid clanand had relationships with elders from a widerange of tribal backgrounds.Initially producing curio items for sale totourists and regalia for Oregon Indians, heemerged in the late 1950s as one of a handfulof artists who proved critical in the renaissanceof Northwest Coast Indian art. He alsodeveloped into a supreme performer andeducator, staging shows of dances, songs,and storytelling. During the peak years from the1970s to the early 1990s, the family showswith Lelooska as the centrepiece attracted asmany as 30,000 people annually.In this book, historian and family friend ChrisFriday shares and annotates interviews that heconducted with Lelooska between 1993 and1996. In the process, he develops a portraitthat is large enough to embrace the contradic-tory elements of Lelooska?s life. What, he asks,is Native identity? What is ?authenticity? in art?How are we to understand the concept of pan-Indianism? What are the politics of Indian tribaladoption? By engaging these questions and thecontradictions that produce them, Fridayhonours Lelooska?s complexity and constructsLelooska?s life as a prism for viewing theshifting and historically indeterminate nature oftwentieth-century Indian identities.Freeze Frame takes a penetrating, oftenhumourous, look at how Eskimos have beenportrayed in nearly a century of film, from thepioneering documentaries of missionaries andArctic explorers to Eskimo Pie commercialsof the 1990s. Some of these works areserious attempts to depict a culture; othersare unabashed entertainment, featuring papierm?ch? igloos and zebra-skin parkas. Evenfilmmakers who sought authenticity were likelyto build igloos in villages that had never seenone, and to hire non-Native actors to portraythe Eskimo principals.The groundbreaking film Nanook of the North,released in 1922, solidified the popularimpression of Eskimos and set the precedentfor dozens of ethnographic docudramas tofollow. Freeze Frame documents the ideas thatmotivate and lie behind this abundant genera-tion of images. The first study to look at thepopular image of Alaska Eskimos, it makes animportant contribution to our understanding ofNative American stereotyping.LelooskaThe Life of a Northwest Coast ArtistChris FridayFreeze FrameAlaska Eskimos in the MoviesAnn Fienup-RiordanUNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON PRESS?One of the real joysof this book is the richassortment of moviestills, lobby cards,posters, and other filmparaphernalia which theauthor has collected.These marvelousillustrations help makethis stimulating discus-sion of Alaskan popularculture a volume totreasure.??

The words evoke imagesof rough-and-tumble loggers and gritty miners,of dreary shacks in isolated villages, of wagespaid in scrip good only at price-gougingcompany stores, of paternalistic employers.But these stereotypes are outdated, espe-cially for those company towns that flourishedwell into the twentieth century. In CompanyTowns of the Pacific Northwest, Linda Carlsonprovides a more balanced and realistic look atthese ?intentional communities.?Drawing from residents? reminiscences,contemporary newspaper accounts, companynewsletters and histories, census and schoolrecords, and site plans, this vibrant historygives the details of daily life in communitiesthat were often remote and subject to severeweather ? as much as 100 inches of rain ayear near the coast or 10 feet of snow in themountains. It looks at the tragedies andcelebrations: sawmill accidents, mine cave-ins, and avalanches as well as IndependenceDay picnics, school graduations, and Christ-mas parties. Finally, it tells what happenedwhen people left ? when they lost their jobs,when the family breadwinner died or wasdisabled, when the mill closed.This lively and well-researched book will bewelcomed by those interested in Northwesthistory, as well as students of labour andbusiness history. An ample selection ofillustrations, most never previously published,broadens its appeal.In 1896, a small group of prospectorsdiscovered a stunningly rich pocket of goldat the confluence of the Klondike and Yukonrivers, and in the following two years thou-sands of individuals traveled to the area,hoping to find wealth in a rugged and chal-lenging setting. Ever since that time, theKlondike Gold Rush ? especially as portrayedin photographs of long lines of gold seekersmarching up Chilkoot Pass ? has had a holdon the popular imagination.In this first environmental history of thegold rush, Kathryn Morse describes howthe miners got to the Klondike, the miningtechnologies they employed, and the complexnetworks by which they obtained food,clothing, and tools. Her story is often nar-rated through the diaries and letters of theminers themselves. The daunting challengesof traveling, working, and surviving in the rawwilderness are illustrated not only by theminers? compelling accounts but by news-paper reports and advertisements thatcontributed to the public relations campaigndesigned to lure gold seekers ? and theirmoney ? to the businesses of the PacificNorthwest.This captivating drama of the miners? journeysnorth, their trials along the gold creeks, andtheir encounters with an extreme climate willappeal not only to scholars of the westernenvironment and of late-nineteenth-centuryindustrialism, but also to readers interestedin reliving the vivid adventure of the West?slast great gold rush.Company Townsof the Pacific NorthwestLinda CarlsonThe Nature of GoldAn Environmental Historyof the Klondike Gold RushKathryn MorseUNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON PRESS?This remarkable surveyof life in the companytowns of the PacificNorthwest and theirsignificance to theeconomy of the regionmakes an importantcontribution to the socialhistory of the West ...[Carlson?s] well-writtenstory reveals paternal-ism at both its best andits worst.??

Most returned toSan Francisco and Puget Sound later in thesame year, blaming their failure to find wealthin the river canyons upon uncooperativeofficials of the Hudson?s Bay Company andthe English government.Viewing events from the perspective ofCalifornia, historians have generally consid-ered the gold rush a failure.

This memoir is Goldin?spassionate and painful account of growing upin a poor Jewish household and her emigra-tion to the United States in 1975.In recalling trips to the market and the mikvehas well as preparations for ritual celebrationslike weddings, Goldin chronicles her child-hood, her relatives? lives, and the lives ofthe women in her community in the southernIranian city of Shiraz. Her memoir details herparents? ?courtship? (her father selected hermother from a group of adolescent girls);her mother?s lonely life as a child-bride in ahousehold dominated by her mother-in-law;and Goldin?s childhood home, presided overby her paternal grandmother.In its subtle way, Goldin?s memoir conveys notjust the personal trauma of growing up in aJewish extended family fraught with discord,but also the complex, and even tragic humancosts of religious fundamentalism, particularlyJewish fundamentalism supported by anIslamic context antagonistic to Jews but verymuch in sync with some Iranian Jewish viewson women. Although the profound sadness ofthe manuscript is balanced by her ability tocapture the feel of the place ? the scents andtextures of Jewish Iran ? this is nonetheless abrave and unflinching portrayal of a little-known geographical corner of Jewish life.Stars of DavidRock ?n?

Together, theessays not only consider the James Bondnovels and films in relation to their historical,political, and social contexts from the cold-war period onwards, but also examine theclassic Bond canon from an array of theoreti-cal perspectives. What The James BondPhenomenon shows is that there is much,much more to the 007 series than cheapthrills, fast cars, and beautiful women.Paul Rogers is one of the world?s leadingsecurity experts. Since September 11, hehas been a regular guest on TV news chan-nels throughout America and Britain, wherehe has offered expert advice on the realimplications of 9/11 and Bush?s ?war onterror.? His articles in newspapers aroundthe world, and in the web journal OpenDemocracy, have become essential readingfor many thousands of people, includinggovernment officials, senior military, headsof UN agencies, opinion formers, journalists,and peace activists.A War on Terror is Paul Rogers? radicalassessment of Bush?s new policy, the wayit has affected world security, and the graveimplications that it holds for future peace,not only in the Middle East but throughout theworld. Moving from the war in Afghanistanand its aftermath to the Israeli/Palestinianconflict, the continuing development of Al-Qa?ida and its associates through to the waron Iraq, Rogers presents a uniquely cogentanalysis of these rapid and traumatic events.For the US, in particular, the post-9/11 worldis one in which it is essential to maintain firmcontrol of international security, extending topre-emptive military action. In this book,Rogers demonstrates how futile, mistaken,and deeply counter-productive that belief is,and points the way to more effective routesto a more just and secure world.The James Bond PhenomenonA Critical ReaderChristoph LindnerA War on TerrorPaul Rogers?

For his work onworldwide human rightshe won the Letelier-Moffitt Human RightsAward. His articles andcolumns have appearedin The New York Times,The Washington Post,The Nation, The Inter-national Herald Tribune,USA Today, MonthlyReview, Rolling Stoneand many other papers.Saul Landau is an internationally knownscholar, author, journalist, poet, and activist.This, his latest book, is a scathing accountof George W. Bush?s world before and afterthe 9/11 terrorist attacks that will appealto anyone who is disenchanted with thecynicism of Bush?s government, and theblatant imperialism US international policy ?or those who just want to learn about what?shappening in US politics.Landau covers the topical and controversialissues ? from terrorism and US foreign policyto Bush?s wondrous election victory; fromEnron, Chile, and Pinochet to Cuba, the MiddleEast, the IMF, the environment, and sexual andcultural politics.He delves into the erosion of civil libertiesand the proliferation of empire under theguise of pre-empting the scourge of terrorism.Landau reveals how Bush protects ?his?terrorists ? those who perpetrate violenceagainst Castro?s Cuba, and to whom he oweshis presidency. He also examines how Bushhas appointed former officials to high levelposts in his cabinet despite their membershipin a conspiracy to sell weapons of massdestruction to Iran in the 1980s.This is an entertaining read from one ofAmerica?s foremost cultural and politicalcommentators. Above all, Landau makes aconvincing case for the necessity of activism ?the book is not only funny but is also a ringingcall for citizens to participate in making theirown history.The trial of Slobodan Milosevic has raisedthe prospect of many former political leadersbeing tried for crimes against humanity. Warcrimes tribunals and the international criminalcourts are supposedly independent mecha-nisms through which we can administerinternational justice, and through whichtyrants and errant regimes can be broughtto account. But is it really that simple?For example, although Milosevic wound upon trial at The Hague, other attempts at warcrimes prosecutions ? notably Pinochet andSharon ? face insurmountable obstacles.Despite the hopes raised about ?an end toimpunity,? the United States is currentlyexempting itself entirely from the jurisdictionof the new International Criminal Court.This book by renowned scholar MichaelMandel offers the first truly critical accountof the war crimes movement. Mandel arguesthat this movement is not actually aboutending war crimes, or impunity for warcrimes, but about selectively punishing ?theusual suspects? as part of the imperialstrategy of the great powers ? primarily theUnited States.Mandel explores the moral and legal debatesover the recent wars in Kosovo, Afghanistan,and Iraq, supposed exercises in ?humanitarianintervention? and ?self-defence.? He analyzesthe role the war crimes movement has playedin these wars, variously promoting them ornot stopping them, despite their immoralityand illegality.The Pre-Emptive EmpireA Guide to Bush?s KingdomSaul LandauForeword by George McGovernHow America Gets Away with MurderIllegal Wars, Collateral Damage, and CrimesAgainst HumanityMichael Mandel?

The protest wasunprecedented in world history as it precededwar. In effect, an international coalition ofpeople was attempting to assert its will ontothe stage of power politics to forestall a wardemanded by the world?s only superpower. Inthe light of these remarkable events, it is nowmore important than ever to properly assessIraq?s role in world politics, and the impactthat sanctions and war have had on thepeople of the country.This book serves both as a history of theregion, an assessment of its role in thebroader political landscape, and a movingaccount of the day-to-day reality experiencedby the people of Iraq. The authors look atIraq?s -- and Saddam Hussein?s -- political rolein the Middle East and examine the role of theUN, sanctions, and warfare. They then assessAmerican policy towards Iraq and how thishas changed since September 11, setting itwithin the broader context of America?sinvolvement in the Middle East. They offera historical analysis of Russian-Iraqi relations.Finally, they look at social policy within Iraq,explaining how the internal welfare system hascollapsed since the Gulf War, and the continu-ing effects of depleted uranium.There is no doubt that war will have a seriouseffect on the Iraqi people. This timely accounthelps us understand the true effect that warwill have, and how we can establish more justforms of social intervention in the future.Modern Jihad: The New Economy of Terrorpropels the reader into the netherworld ofillegal organizations.
