Its  billion-dollar industry trails behind only California andNew York, the most well-established film produc-tion sites on the continent. Prior to the mid-1970s,however, British Columbia had little in the way offilm production that could properly be called anindustry.This timely book recounts the story of BritishColumbia's rapid rise from  relative obscurity inthe film world to its current status as ?HollywoodNorth.? Mike Gasher positions the industry as amodel for commercial film  production  in  thetwenty-first century ? one strongly shaped by aperception of cinema  as a  medium, not ofculture, but of regional industrial development.Addressing the specific economic and geo-graphic factors that contribute to the province?ssuccess, such as the low  Canadian dollar andBC?s proximity to Los Angeles, Gasher alsoconsiders the  broader implications of theincreasingly  widespread trend  towards  locationservice production on national cinema  andcultural production.Hollywood North is an important book that bringsinto focus the tension between globalization andlocalization in the film industry. It will have greatappeal to those with an interest in debates onCanadian national cinema, the notion of cinemaas industry, and the highly nuanced relationshipbetween cinema and place.Mike Gasher is a member of the Department of Journal-ism, Concordia University, and co-author of MassCommunications in Canada.August192 pages approx, 6 x 9?ISBN 0-7748-0967-1hardcover, $85.00ISBN 0-7748-0968-Xpaper, $24.95WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/FILMFilm2 ORDER FROM RAINCOAST TEL: 1  800 663 5714Now in paperback!In  1891, Alice  Barrett moved from Port Dover,Ontario, to the Okanagan Valley to keep house forher brother and uncle.

BussIn the early nineteenth century, when the Hudson'sBay Company sent men to its furthest posts alongthe coast of North America's Pacific Northwest,the letters of those who cared for the men fol-lowed them in the Company's supply ships.Sometimes, these letters  missed  their  objects ?the men had returned to Britain, or deserted theirships, or died. The Company returned the corres-pondence to its London office and over the yearsamassed a file of "undelivered letters." Many ofthese remained sealed for 150 years until theywere opened by archivist Judith Hudson Beattie,after the Company archives were moved toCanada.These letters tell the fascinating stories of ordinarypeople whose lives  are rarely recounted in tra-ditional histories.  Judith Hudson Beattie and HelenM. Buss, a literary scholar, skilfully introduce us tothe lives of the letter writers and their would-berecipients.  Their commentaries frame,  for  con-temporary  readers,  the words of early nineteenth-century working and middle-class British peopleas well as letters  to voyageurs from Quebec. Thestories of their lives ? fathers struggling to sup-port a family, widowed mothers yearning to seetheir sons, bereft sweethearts left behind, andwives raising their children alone ? reach outover two centuries to offer rare insight into thevaried worlds of men and women in  the earlynineteenth century,  many of whom becamesettlers in Washington, Oregon, and the newBritish colony of Vancouver Island.Judith Hudson Beattie is Keeper of the Hudson?s BayCompany Archives in Winnipeg.

ColpittsFrontier and pioneer societies provide numerousunexplored avenues of social history. Game in theGarden identifies the imaginative use of wild animalsin early western society. In what is now westernCanada, humans have long used wildlife in order tosurvive their surroundings, better understand theirnatural world, and form aspects of their identity.The shared use of wild animals has helped to de-termine social relations between Native peoples andnewcomers. In later settlement periods, controversyabout subsistence hunting and campaigns of localconservation associations drew lines betweengroups in communities, particularly Native peoples,immigrants, farmers, and urban dwellers. In additionto examining grassroots conservation activities,Colpitts identifies early slaughter rituals, icono-graphic traditions, and subsistence strategies thatendured well into the interwar years in the twentiethcentury. Drawing primarily on local and provincialarchival sources, he analyzes popular meaningsand booster messages discernible in  taxidermywork, city nature museums, and promotionalphotography.Environmental historians,  Native studies special-ists, history students, conservationists, natureenthusiasts, and general readers alike will findfascinating how western attitudes to wild animalschanged according to  subsistence and economicneeds and how wildlife  helped to determine thesocial relations among people in  western Canada.G.W.

The once-domi-nant paradigm of separate spheres ? ?women?swork for women? ? had lost its saliency, and pro-fessional  women often entered work worlds largelypeopled by men. Medical missionaries  Belle Chon?Oliver and Florence Murray and literature  specialistMargaret Wrong were three such women.Using these  women?s experiences in  colonialIndia,  Korea, and sub-Saharan Africa  as casestudies, Modern Women Modernizing Menexplores how professionalism,  religion, andfeminism  came together  to enable missionarywomen to  become the  colleagues and mentorsof Western and non-Western men. The ?modern?Christian woman missionary, the author demon-strates, was in fact more an agent of moderniza-tion than an angel of domesticity.This book ? a bold exploration of changing gender,professional, and race relations in  colonial miss-ionary settings ? will be of interest to scholarsengaged in  gender,  women?s, and postcolonialstudies, as well as to readers interested in thehistory of the international  missionary  movement.Ruth Compton Brouwer is Chair of the Department ofHistory, King?s College, University of Western Ontario.June 2002256 pages, 6 x 9?20 photosISBN 0-7748-0952-3hardcover, $85.00The opportunity to experience the natural world withrespect and delight should be a precious part of everyCanadian?s birthright. Seen in that light, the CanadianWildlife Service is one of Canada?s most importantcultural institutions. The term cultural is used broadly,with reference to the entire fabric of behaviours andvalues that bind Canadians into a recognizablesociety. In that sense, CWS has helped us to discoverhow much our relationship with nature adds to ourshared identity.I felt enormously privileged, in the fall of 1996, whenEnvironment Canada invited me to write a 50thanniversary history of the Wildlife Service. Since then, Ihave met and interviewed more than 120 of theagency?s employees, past and present. Not one leftany doubt that a life devoted to the study andprotection of wildlife was a life well spent. Driven by apassionate interest in the natural world, members ofthe CWS family have explored this land, often atconsiderable personal risk, returning to report on thewonder of what is ours and why it matters. In acountry that often deprecates heroism, they areamong our unsung heroes.?

GranatsteinThe Halifax Explosion of 1917 has never been thesubject of a sustained analytical history. Govern-ment archives that contain first-hand accounts ofthe  disaster have never been systematicallyconsulted ? until now.This book carefully retraces the  events precedingthe disaster and the role of the military in its after-math. John Griffith Armstrong?s analysis of the legalmanoeuvres, rhetoric, blunders, public contro-versy,  and crisis management that ensued reveals,for the first time, the rationale behind the publicinquiry findings. His disturbing conclusion is thatfederal officials knew of potential dangers in  theharbour before the  explosion, took no correctiveaction, and kept that information from the public.Reveals a network of implications, accusations,innuendo, and suspicion, all turning a disastrousnavigational accident ? with its sailors, bit players,victims, politicians, and media hacks ? into a graphicbenchmark in the Canadian consciousness.?

Americanstrategists have been widely credited with most ofthese; Canadians, most have assumed, did  notconduct their own strategic analysis. AvoidingArmageddon soundly debunks this notion.Andrew Richter  draws on previously classifiedgovernment records and reveals  that  Canadiandefence officials did come to  independent stra-tegic understandings of the most critical issuesof the nuclear age. Canadian appreciation ofdeterrence, arms control, and strategic  stabilitydiffered conceptually from  the  US models.Similarly, Canadian thinking on the controversialissues  of air  defence and the domestic acquisitionof nuclear weapons was primarily influenced bydecidedly Canadian interests.Avoiding Armageddon is both timely and valuable.Drawing on hitherto classified documents, it adds toour knowledge and understanding about a historicalperiod, generating a re-evaluation of thinking aboutCanadian defence and foreign policy.?

To date,histories of this mission work have largely focusedon men, while the activities of women ? either asmissionary wives or as missionaries in their ownright ? have been seen as peripheral at best, ifnot completely overlooked.Based on diaries,  letters,  and mission  correspon-dence, Women and the  White Man?s God  examineswomen?s roles in northern domestic missions. Thestatus of women in the Anglican Church, genderrelations in the mission field, and encounters be-tween  Aboriginals and missionaries are carefullyscrutinized.

Nationalists believe that thepurpose of politics is to ensure that a people'ssense of authentic nationhood wins full expres-sion in powers of collective sovereignty or self-rule. Both of these forms of political commit-ment yield  world-transforming political philoso-phies, but do either of these visions do ade-quate justice  to a philosophically robust ideal ofshared citizenship and civic membership?In  Liberalism, Nationalism, Citizenship,  RonaldBeiner engages critically with  a wide range ofimportant  political thinkers and current debatesin light of the Aristotelean idea that shared citi-zenship is an essential human calling. Virtuallyevery aspect of contemporary political experi-ence ? globalization, international migration,secessionist movements, the politics of multi-culturalism ? pose urgent challenges to moderncitizenship. Beiner's work on the philosophy ofcitizenship is essential reading not just forstudents of politics and political philosophy, butfor all those who rightly sense that these kindsof recent  challenges demand an ambitiousrethinking of the nature of political community.A clearly written book, full of incisive insights, anda welcome contribution to the debate.

HawkerThe years between 1922 and 1961, oftenreferred to as the ?Dark Ages of Northwest Coastart,? have largely been ignored by art historians,and dismissed as a period of artistic decline.Tales  of Ghosts  compellingly reclaims this era,arguing that it was instead a critical period duringwhich the art played an important role in publicdiscourses on the status of First Nations people inCanadian society.Hawker?s insightful examination focuses on thecomplex functions that Northwest Coast objects,such as the ubiquitous totem pole, played duringthe period. He demonstrates how these objectsasserted the integrity and meaningfulness of FirstNations identities, while simultaneously resistingthe intent and effects of assimilation enforced bythe Canadian government?s denial of land claims,its ban of the potlatch, and its support of assimi-lationist  education.Those with an interest in First Nations andCanadian history and art history, anthropology,museology, and post-colonial studies will bedelighted by the publication of this major contri-bution to their fields.Ronald W.

It presents the conserva-tion profession?s code of ethics and discussesfour  significant  contexts embedded in  museumconservation practice: science, professional-ization,  museum practice, and the relationshipbetween museums and First Nations peoples.Museum practice  regarding  handling andpreservation of objects has been largely taken asa given, and it can be difficult to see how theseactivities are politicized. Miriam  Clavir argues thatmuseum practices  are historically grounded  andrepresent values that are not necessarily held bythe originators of the objects. She first focuses onconservation and explains the  principles andmethods con- servators practise. She thendiscusses First Nations people's perspectives onpreservation, quoting extensively from  interviewsdone throughout  British Columbia, and comparingthe BC situation with that in New Zealand.Miriam Clavir is Senior Conservator, Museum ofAnthropology, University of British Columbia.August (hc 2002)320 pages, 6 x 9?ISBN 0-7748-0860-8hardcover, $95.00ISBN 0-7748-0861-6paper, $29.9510 ORDER FROM RAINCOAST TEL: 1  800 663 5714Taxing ChoicesThe Intersection of Class, Gender,Parenthood, and the LawRebecca JohnsonIn the early 1990s, lawyer Beth Symes broughtan equality challenge against the  CanadianIncome  Tax Act, arguing that  her child care costswere a business expense. The case ignited  publiccontroversy. Was Symes disadvantaged on thebasis of gender, or unfairly privileged on the basisof class?This book seeks answers to those questionsthrough close attention to the Symes case, whereclass and gender interests clashed over the taxtreatment of child care. It looks at the history oflegislative and litigative struggles, the dynamics ofcourtroom discourse, and the influence of broadsocial debates about children and the public/private divide. It reveals how frequently therhetoric of choice, responsibility, and selfishnessis invoked in response to women's attempts toplace issues of child care on the public agenda.Taxing Choices will interest all those who seek touse the law as a tool of social justice, but aretroubled by the perils posed by competinginterests  and conflicts involving race, class,gender, and ability.This book makes a huge contribution to the field ofsocio-legal studies.

Bythe  mid-1900s, Native peoples across westernCanada were actively involved  in  their ownpolitical unions in a drive to be heard outside theirown, often isolated,  reserve  communities.In Alberta,  the Indian Association of Alberta  (IAA)represented  the  interests  of Alberta?s  reservecommunities. Perhaps best known for its role inspearheading the protest against the 1969 WhitePaper produced  by the  Department of  IndianAffairs, the IAA, founded in 1939, allowed Nativepeoples access to  politics at the provincial level.Its rich history reveals much about First Nations?perspectives on the place of  Indian  peoples inCanada before the  emergence of civil  rightsmovements and large-scale federal  funding ofNative organizations.Laurie Meijer Drees teaches in the First Nations StudiesDepartment at Malaspina University College.2002270 pages, 6 x 9?15 photos, 2 mapsISBN 0-7748-0876-4hardcover, $85.00Native Studies   ?

Bangkok?sbrothels have become international  icons of ?thirdworld? women?s exploitation in  the global sextrade.  Recently,  however,  sex workers havebegun to demand not pity, but rights as workersin  the global economy.This book explores how Thai national identity insuch an economy is linked to prostitution andgender.  Jeffrey asserts that  certain  images of  ?TheProstitute? have silenced discourses of prostitutionas work, while fostering the idea of the peasantwoman as the embodiment of national culture. Thisidea, coupled with a will to shape the modern statethrough the behaviour of middle-class men, hasbeen a main concern of Thai prostitution policy.Gender,  Jeffrey argues, has become the  mecha-nism through which states respond to the contradic-tory pressures of globalization and nation-building.This is an important and original study of genderedprocesses in postcolonial nationalisms and nation-building.
