It should contribute to the very lively debate about the court, not only in the legal and media milieu, but in the general public as well.” – Andrée Lajoie, Faculty of Law, University of Montreal SEPTEMBER 2005 320 pages, est., 6 x 9” 10 b/w photos, 35 tables, 2 graphs ISBN 0-7748-1244-3 pb $24.95 Law / Media Studies                LAW AND SOCIETY SERIES The Supreme Court of Canada has often occupied the Canadian news spotlight recently, as high-profile cases on issues ranging from child pornography to gay rights to national unity have received heavy, some- times sensational, media coverage. Meanwhile, some ask if an activist court is usurping the role of our elected representatives. The Last Word examines the relationship between two im-portant institu- tions in Canadian life: the Supreme Court of Canada and the Canadian news media. How do everyday Canadians learn about the complex workings of the court? How do we come to hold our opinions about the court’s decisions? This relationship is crucial not only for the court and for journalists, but also for the public, who understand the court through the lens of the media. This book tells the story of a year of media coverage centred around four high-profile cases: the Marshall case on Aboriginal rights, the Vriend case on gay rights, the Quebec Secession Reference, and the Sharpe child pornography case. Looking at newspaper and TV reports, and interviewing judges, journalists, and executive legal officers, Sauvageau, Schneiderman, and Taras offer a rich and detailed account of the rela- tionship between the court and the media. They describe how judges and journalists interact with each other and discuss how this relationship affects coverage of the court. The Last Word argues that journalists often have the final say in explain- ing the court’s actions and judgments to the public. While judges have uncontested power over legal interpretation, journalists control what message reaches the Canadian people. Engagingly written and thoroughly researched, The Last Word will ap- peal to readers interested in the law, the media, and public affairs in general. » ALSO OF INTEREST Hidden Agendas How Journalists Influence the News Lydia Miljan and Barry Cooper 2004, 188 pages, ISBN 0-7748-1020-3, pb $24.95 Morals and the Media, Second Edition Nicholas Russell 2005, 268 pages, est., ISBN 0-7748-1088-2, pb $39.95 2 O R D E R  F R O M  uniPRESSES TEL: 1 877 864 8477 UBC PRESS Northern Exposures Photographing and Filming the Canadian North, 1920–45 Peter Geller To many, the North is a familiar but inacces- sible place. Most of us have never been there, yet images of the region are within easy reach: in books and magazines, and on television, computer, and movie screens. Peter Geller uncovers the history behind these popular conceptions of the Canadian North. Northern Exposures looks at the photographic and film practice of the three major colonial institutions in the Arctic and Sub-Arctic -- the Canadian government, the Anglican Church of Canada, and the Hudson’s Bay Company -- in the first half of the twentieth century. Their visual representations of the region were widely circulated in official publications and presented in film shows and lantern slide lec- tures. Geller reveals the varied ways in which taking and displaying pictures of northern people and places extended control over the northern reaches of the Canadian nation. This book sheds light on twentieth-century visual culture and the relationship between photography and colonial power, and raises questions about the role of visual representa- tion in history. Illustrated with over eighty-five images from photographs and films of the pe- riod, this book will appeal to those interested in Canadian history, Northern and Aboriginal studies, anthropology, and visual culture.

NEW IN PAPER “Northern Exposures makes a very significant contribution to the field. Its important subject – how southern attitudes toward the North have been manipulated – has not been previously tackled, and Geller’s scholarship is very sound indeed.” – William Barr, Arctic Institute of North America Shaped by the West Wind Nature and History in Georgian Bay Claire Elizabeth Campbell Foreword by Graeme Wynn Along the east shore of Ontario’s Georgian Bay lie the Thirty Thousand Islands, a granite archipelago scarred by glaciers, where the white pines cling to the ancient rock, twisted and bent by the west wind – a symbol of a region where human history has been shaped by the natural environment. Over the last four centuries, the Bay has been visited by some of the most famous figures in Canadian history, from Samuel de Champlain to the Group of Seven. This book traces the history of Canadians’ reactions to and interactions with this distinctive and often intractable landscape. Beginning with a revealing analysis of the cartographic history of the Bay, Campbell proceeds to examine changing cultural rep- resentations of landscape over time. Each chapter presents a different type of encoun- ter – the varying ways in which people ap- proached or interacted with the Bay. The book also includes many illustrations, including historical maps, archival and contemporary photographs, and paintings by the Group of Seven and other Canadian artists. Shaped By the West Wind is  about how places take on shifting cultural meanings over time. It speaks to a wide variety of interests, including geography, art and design, literary criticism, environmental studies, and history. Claire Elizabeth Campbell is Killam Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of History and Classics at the University of Alberta.

C A UBC PRESS If I Had a Hammer Retraining That Really Works Margaret Hillyard Little Retraining scholarship has, for the most part, focused on working class men and women, with virtually no attention paid to low-income women. And welfare literature has, to some extent, accepted the limitations of neoliberal governments and focused on workfare and other welfare policies. There is an urgency, Margaret Little argues, to talk boldly about retraining as an effective and important strategy for welfare reform. This book endeavors to explore the very best Canadian retraining programs. It is filled with fascinating interviews with the women involved (many of whom are Aboriginal), and with innovative policy prescriptions. If I Had a Hammer fills a gap in the current literature on retraining and welfare policy and makes an important contribution to social policy that transcends its Canadian context. Drawing on her years as a journalist, Little writes in an accessible manner that will engage the general public and students. The book will be widely used in courses on politics, women’s studies, sociology, labour studies, social work, and economics. “At a time when the presence of women in the trades may actually be declining and workfare is on the ascendance, Little’s book makes a pioneering contribution.” – Patricia Evans, co-editor of Women’s Caring: Feminist Perspectives on Social Welfare Margaret Hillyard Little is an anti-poverty activist who teaches in Political Studies and Women’s Stud- ies at Queen’s University.

Joblessness was viewed as a social problem and the jobless as its unfortunate victims. While unemployment insurance expanded over several decades to the benefit of the rights of the unemployed, the mid-1970s saw the first stirrings of a counterattack as the federal government’s Keynesian strategy came under siege. Neo-liberalists denounced unemployment insurance and other aspects of the welfare state as inflationary and unpro- ductive. This regression culminated in a major policy shift in the 1990s, when access of unemployed people to benefits was halved. From UI to EI examines Canada’s unemploy- ment insurance system and the rights it grants to the unemployed. The development of the system, its legislation, and related jurisprudence are viewed through a histori- cal perspective that accounts for the social, political, and economic context. This book examines the system with emphasis upon its recent transformations, and will interest professors and students of law, political sci- ence, and social work, and anyone concerned about the right of the unemployed to adequate protection. Georges Campeau is a professor of social law in the Faculté de science politique et de droit at the Université du Québec à Montréal. Richard Howard has been translating books in the social sciences for over three decades.

More than a decade ago, Michael Kluckner began paint- ing these dots on his personal map of the province in a watercolour sketchbook. In 1999, after he put a few of the sketches on his website, a network of correspondents emerged that eventually led him to the family letters, photo albums, and memories from a disappearing era of the province. Vanishing British Columbia is a record of these places and the stories they tell, and an argument for stewardship of regional history in the face of urbanization and globalization. “I’m deeply grateful that Kluckner has created this stunning visual record of what’s receding from us. Vanishing British Columbia intrigu- ingly juxtaposes painted images with archival photographs, snapshots, maps, schematics and an accessible, pleasantly personable text that provides the narrative frame. Yet it would be wrong to value this book simply for its documentary qualities. The paintings are all exquisite works in their own right. … This book represents a substantial contribution to the literary matter of British Columbia and is one that anyone who loves this province will treasure.” – Stephen Hume, The Vancouver Sun MARCH 2005 224 pages, 8½ x 11” 220 colour illus., 130 b/w illus., 22 maps ISBN 0-7748-1125-0 hc $49.95 History Michael Kluckner is a writer and artist living in Langley, British Columbia, whose works include Vanish- ing Vancouver and Canada: A World of Discovery.

RECENTLY RELEASED “Thank God for Michael Kluckner.  In these heart- breaking times of loss when so many of our priceless cul- tural treasures and stories disappear, his hand makes visible the vital connections that tell us the truths of who we are.” – Joy Kogawa, novelist and poet Geography of British Columbia Second Edition Brett McGillivray Why is British Columbia unique within Canada? What physical processes have made this prov- ince so rugged and produced such remark- able variation in climate and vegetation? Why did non-Natives come to British Columbia, and what impact did they have on First Na- tions? How were resources developed in the past and how are those resources developed today? This fully revised second edition of Geography of British Columbia discusses these and many other aspects of the growth of this distinctive province. Brett McGillivray focuses first on the combi- nation of physical processes that produced a spectacular variety of mountains, rivers, lakes, islands, fjords, forests, and minerals, explaining the forces that created the province and the natural hazards that can reshape it. McGillivray also covers the economic geogra- phy of the province, with chapters on forestry, the salmon fishery, metal mining, energy sup- ply and demand, agriculture, water, and the tourism industry. It addresses the present-day issues of urbanization, economic develop- ment, and resource management, providing a thorough background to these topics and suggesting what the future might hold. This up-to-date and comprehensive explora- tion of the rich historical geography and development of British Columbia will be wel- comed by teachers, students, scholars, and everyone with an interest in the province. Brett McGillivray teaches the geography of British Columbia at Capilano College, North Vancouver.

Robertson Stories are important vehicles for social knowledge, as they’re used to construct and transmit perceptions of the world around us. They are powerful imaginative resources that  they allow us to engage with different understandings of human difference. In Imagining Difference, Leslie Robertson turns to a popular local legend to explore the social construction of difference through ideas of “race,” “foreignness,” and regional, class, and religious identity, as expressed by residents of Fernie, British Columbia, a coal-mining town on its way to becoming an international ski resort. The legend revolves around a curse cast on the valley by indigenous people in the nineteenth century. Interpretations of the story reveal a complex landscape of memory and silence, official and contested histories, social and scientific theories,and politics. Cursing becomes a metaphor for the discursive power resonating in political, popular, and cultural contexts, transmitting ideas of difference across generations and geographies. Paying close attention to public perform- ances, mass media, and processes of place- making, Robertson examines forms of social knowledge circulating within local settings, which shape shared understandings and common-sense views of the world.

Looking at tourism from an innovative perspective, Michael Dawson shows how the province’s Aboriginal and British cultures were com- modified and marketed to potential tourists, and considers the gendered nature of some of the promotional campaigns, particularly during the 1940s. Dawson argues that in order to understand the roots of the fully-fledged consumer culture that developed in Canada, it is necessary to understand the connections between the 1930s, 1940s, and the postwar era. He underlines the significance of the Depres- sion and the Second World War – ostensibly periods of “underconsumption” -- for the development of tourism promotion and con- sumerism in general. “In Selling British Columbia, Michael Dawson takes a creative approach to the study of tourism in Canada. Drawing from a vast array of sources and contributing to the growing field of tourism studies, this book will speak to an international audience.” – Karen Dubinsky, Professor of History, Queen’s University, Michael Dawson teaches in the Department of History at St. Thomas University in Fredericton.

Colonizers who followed the explorers used these claims to justify the displacement of Native groups from their land. Scholars now understand, however, that Northwest Coast peoples were actively cultivating plants well before they experienced contact with Europeans. Keeping It Living tells the story of traditional Northwest Coast cultivation practices, and of how they came to be overlooked by Europeans. Bringing together some of the world’s most prominent specialists on North- west Coast cultures, this book discusses plant management methods found from the Oregon Coast to Southeast Alaska. It looks at tobacco gardens among the Haida and Tlingit, managed camas plots among the Coast Salish of Puget Sound and the Strait of Georgia, estaurine root gardens along the central coast of British Columbia, wapato plot maintenance on the Columbia and Fraser Rivers, and tended berry plots up and down the entire coast. With contributions from ethnobotanists, archaeologists, anthropologists, geographers, ecologists, and Native American scholars and elders, Keeping It Living documents practices, many quite different from those characteristic of European agriculture, that involve manipulating plants as well as their environments in a way that enhanced both the quantity and the quality of plant production. “A most welcome addition to the literature on the nature of the evolutionary transition from hunting-gathering-fishing modes of production to those based in great measure on agriculture.” – Eugene Hunn, University of Washington Douglas Deur is assistant professor of geography at the University of Ne- vada, Reno.

Reid Translated by Daisy Sewid-Smith Agnes Alfred (c. 1890-1992) was one of the last great storytellers of her generation. A non-literate Qwiqwasutinuxw noblewoman, she wove her narra- tives from myths, chants, historical accounts, and personal reminiscences. Paddling to Where I Stand is her first-hand account of the most significant period of change she and her people experienced since first contact, and her memoirs flow from her urgently felt desire to pass on her knowledge to younger generations. Eloquent and well versed in the Kwakwakawakw customs, she sets forth, in the classic oral tradi- tion, the foundations and the enduring pulse of her living culture. She contributes to our understanding of several traditional practices, including pre-ar- ranged marriages and the traditional potlatch ceremonies. She also shows how a First Nations woman managed to quietly fulfill her role as a noble matriarch in her ever-changing society, thus provid- ing a role model for those who came after her. Offering stories that are both humorous and mov- ing, Paddling to Where I Stand is an original and fascinating read. Martine J. Reid is an independent scholar whose interests are in the field of Northwest Coast cultural and aesthetic anthropology. Daisy Sewid-Smith is Agnes Alfred’s granddaughter, a cultural historian, and a Kwakwakawakw language instructor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Victoria. 2004 325 pages, 6 x 9” 36 b/w photos, 8 figures, 1 map ISBN 0-7748-0913-2 pb $29.95 Native Studies / Anthropology Animals and Nature Cultural Myths, Cultural Realities Rod Preece Western conceptions of objectivity and individuality have resulted in a readier appreciation of the worth of animals and nature than has been recognized. This provocative book takes issue with the popular view that the Western cultural tradition, in contrast to Eastern and Aboriginal traditions, has encour- aged attitudes of domination and exploitation towards nature, particularly animals. Preece argues that the Western tradition has much to commend it, and that descriptions of Aboriginal and Oriental orientations have often been mislead- ingly rosy, simplified and codified according to current fashionable concepts. Animals and Nature is the result of six years’ intensive study into com- parative religion, literature, philosophy, anthropol- ogy, mythology and animal welfare science. “No one tradition alone offers a sufficient respect for other species. Taken together, they may offer a prospect for saner human-animal relations.” -- Rod Preece, from Animals and Nature Rod Preece is Professor of Political Science at Wilfrid Laurier University SEPTEMBER 2005 336 pages, 3 tables, 6 x 9” ISBN 0-7748-0725-3 pb $29.95 Cultural Studies / Environment This Elusive Land Women and the Canadian Environment Edited by Melody Hessing, Rebecca Raglon, and Catriona Sandilands This Elusive Land introduces the literature about women and the environment in Canada. It looks at the ways women integrate the social and biophysi- cal settings of their lives, and features a range of contexts in which gender mediates, inspires, and informs a sense of belonging to and in this land. This volume reveals the significance of women’s experiences in various landscapes and addresses a number of questions: How are women politically active in developing environmental and resource policy? How are women’s positions in the family, the community, and the labour force mediated by the environment? What would a feminist envi- ronmental perspective look like, especially in the Canadian context? And finally, and perhaps most importantly, does a feminist perspective enable us to better know, understand, and value the Canadian environment, and if so, how? A timely and highly relevant discussion of the re- lationship between gender and environment, this book also covers the ways in which both physical and social landscapes continue to evolve.

He describes Nixon as a partisan working to form an alignment across party lines, successful in many respects before the president tolerated the excesses that eventu- ally corrupted his administration. Finally, he reveals Nixon, the person, as a mixture of Woodrow Wilson, Machiavelli, Theodore Roosevelt, and Shakespeare’s Cassius – an idealistic conniver evoking the strenuous life while he thinks too much. William Safire joined the New York Times in 1973 as a political columnist, and is author of the Sunday column, “On Language.” Author of several books, including Freedom, Full Dis- closure, and Scandalmonger, Safire is the winner of the 1978 Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary.

Mitchell Occupational devotion, as defined by Robert A. Stebbins, is a strong and positive attachment to a form of self-enhancing work, where the sense of achievement is high and the core activity, or set of tasks, is endowed with such intense appeal that the line between work and leisure is virtually erased. This volume examines condi- tions that attract people to their work in this profound way, and the many ex- ceptional values and intrinsic rewards they realize there.  Stebbins frames occupational devotion in four broad social contexts – history, religion, work, and leisure – then considers the further subdivisions of gender, social class, and social character. Between Work and Leisure will be of interest to those interested in work and occupa- tions, as well as those interested in the quality of their own lives. Robert A.

Today’s young people often experience less perma- nency and more movement in and out of a variety of family-related roles, statuses, and living arrangements. Among the most prominent changes is the increased phenomenon of “boo- merang kids,” young adults returning to the parental home after their initial entrance into the adult social world. The Boomerang Age explores the implications of this development in a changing socio-cultural, economic, and demographic landscape. Barbara A. Mitchell provides key knowledge on historical and contemporary youth transitions in an international perspec- tive. It will be of interest across many disciplines including the sociology of families, gerontology, economics, and population studies. Barbara A.

The links between males in groups Tiger describes derived from our evolution as hunters/gatherers. They extend through many other primate species and also across diverse cultures. Male bonding characterizes human groups as varied as the Vati- can Council, the New York Yankees, the Elks and Masons and the secret societies of Sierra Leone and Kenya. The power of Tiger’s book is its identi- fication of powerful links between men as well as the impact of females and families on essentially male groups. Men in Groups remains a measured and responsible but intrepid inspec- tion of a major aspect of human social organization and personal behavior. The book was controversial when it first appeared, and often foolishly and unduly scorned. It remains a fun- damental contribution to the emerging synthesis between the social and natural sciences.

By its very nature, milk is nutritious. Despite this, it has received surpris- ingly little attention from those inter- ested in the cultural impact of food. In this fascinating volume, Stuart Patton convincingly argues that milk has be- come of such importance and has so many health and cultural implications that everyone should have a basic un- derstanding of it. This book provides this much-needed introduction. Patton provides a wealth of guidance to help ordinary people deal with a rising tide of confusing and often disturbing information. He shows that in addition to its well-known content of essential nutrients, milk is proving to be healthy in previously unanticipated ways. Among such research findings, reported with citations to the original literature in Milk, is milk’s capacity to suppress obesity. In light of humani- ty’s necessary concerns with health, enjoyment of life, and longevity, Milk is essential reading.

Food Wars The Global Battle for Mouths, Minds and Markets Tim Lang and Michael Heasman Globalization has far-reaching impacts on what we eat and profound implica- tions for public health. In developing countries, the problems of ‘Western’ diets are found alongside food short- ages. What matters now is not just what we eat but how it has been produced and distributed – the global politics of food and health. Food Wars describes two food production para- digms that are competing to replace the dominant industrial production model. One centres on the life sci- ences, the other on an ecological ap- proach. Both have strong support but one dominates investment. Both draw on biology but differ in their social and political understanding. The authors argue that the outcome of the ‘Food Wars’ is hugely important for food security and global health. Tim Lang is Professor of Food Policy at City University and author of The New Protectionism.

Young and Matthias Finger Driven by ideology, the IMF and World Bank, and industry, governments worldwide have been privatizing services – not just utilities like energy, water and transport, but also health, education, media, pensions, even prisons and defence. This book is the first thorough audit of privatizations around the world. It shows how and where they have worked well, and where they have de- feated their own aims – with serious consequences. It analyses the factors behind success or failure, and argues for the fundamental importance of democratic governance of the priva- tization of publicly owned goods. This important book challenges one of the major orthodoxies of our day, and will be a benchmark for future debate.

C A EARTHSCAN / JAMES & JAMES Since the 1960s, the world’s popu- lation has more than doubled and agricultural production per person has increased by a third, largely because of widespread pesticide use. Yet this growth in production has masked enormous hidden costs – massive ecological damage and high incidences of farmer poisoning and chronic health effects. In recent years millions of farmers in communities around the world have been identifying harmful pesticides and developing cheaper and safer alternatives. The Pesticide Detox explores the potential for the phas- ing-out of hazardous pesticides and the phasing-in of cost effective alternatives already available on the market. This book makes clear that it is time to start the pesticide detox and to move towards a more sustain- able agriculture.

JANUARY 2005 240 pages, 6 x 9 ISBN 1-84407-142-1 pb $ 49.95 Agriculture / Geography Ecotourism is the fastest growing segment of tourism, the world’s larg- est industry. Encounters with wild animals, be it swimming with dolphins, going on safari or bird watching, are increasingly popular. Facing the Wild examines why people seek out animals in their natural environment, what the desire for this experience tells us about the meanings of animals and nature in contemporary industrial- ized societies, and whether visitors change their environmental perspec- tives and behaviour as a result. The book explores the contradictions and ambivalence that so many people experience in the presence of ‘wild nature’ – in loving it we may diminish it and in the act of wanting to see it we may destroy it. Ultimately the book makes a case for ‘respectful stewardship’ of a ‘hybrid nature’ and provides insight for both practitioners and ecotourists alike.

However, this book is not simply an account of what happened, but rather it is about why it happened. Adams examines the big questions and ideas that have driven conservation for a century. How can the diversity of life be maintained as human demands on the earth expand seemingly without end? How can you reconcile preservation with human rights and the development needs of the poor? Is conservation something that needs to be imposed on people, or is it only something that emerges from people’s free choice? These have never been easy questions and the answers, as Adams reveals, have been even more difficult.

Magnusen Foreword by Tony Attwood Based on twenty-five years of teaching and working with children who have Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), Christy L. Magnusen contends that it is those teachers who can blend the ‘science’ of education methodology with the ‘art’ of teaching who are best able to reach these children. Examin- ing both these aspects of teaching, she takes a fresh look at established and more recent teaching methods such as structuring spaces, emphasizing language and planning strategies for transition and generalization, and then explores the art of implementation: why, when and how these tech- niques should be applied. By highlighting workable solutions to everyday problems, and emphasizing that teachers need to understand techniques and have the ability to adapt them to the situation that faces them, this book will be invaluable to all those involved in teaching children with ASDs. Dr Christy L. Magnusen  has devoted her professional career to reaching and teaching children with ASDs and is the co-editor of Autism: Clinical and Research Issues. She teaches graduate level course work at Southern Illinois University and is a mother of four.

Hall Foreword by Robert Michael Pyle After a long and accomplished career in scientific illustration, Bonnie Hall turned with wonder and determination to the art of  screenprinting. Resolved to “share the privileged close scrutiny of nature” that she had enjoyed, Hall created her first screenprint in 1992 while undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. Over the next twelve years, she cre- ated screenprints of Pacific Northwest wildflowers, ferns, and butter- flies—natural history portraits in simple, sharp-edged planes of brilliant color. Inspired by old botanical prints and motivated by a desire to draw attention to “the overlooked, undervalued, or threatened wild things native to our Pacific Northwest landscape,” Hall produced scientifically accurate prints that revealed the personality, life stages, and the very essence of her subjects—what a fellow artist aptly called the “gesture” of each plant. Ever Blooming collects the thirty-three large serigraphs and five smaller ferns that Hall created in the last years of her life, along with Hall’s own text describing each plant and butterfly. Her narratives are rich in detail and informed by thorough study into plant distribution, life histories, use by Native Americans, taxonomic discoveries, and conservation issues. Taken as a whole, the work is a sparkling confluence of science and art. For botanists, wildflower enthusiasts, gardeners, and artists, as well as anyone who loves the Pacific Northwest wilderness, Ever Blooming offers a singular glimpse of the natural world as seen through the eyes of a gifted and inspired artist. “Bonnie Hall and her exquisite art created one of the loveliest gardens ever grown of our region’s floral treasures. From violets to shooting stars, fritillarias to ferns, and a bursting bouquet of irises, Bonnie captured the color, form, and personality of Northwest flowers with the simplicity of Henry Evans and the exuberance of a Dutch Master’s still life. As a beautiful bonus, splendid portraits of five special Northwest butterflies linger among the wildflowers they love. Bonnie Hall’s wild- flowers are her great gift to us all – long may they bloom!” – Robert Michael Pyle Bonnie Hall (1931-2004) was a graduate of the Uni- versity of Oregon and the University of California, Ber- keley.  She began her career as a scientific illustrator at the University of Michigan Museum, later joining the Department of Entomology at Oregon State University, where she worked for thirty years. She and James D. Hall, now Professor Emeri- tus of Fisheries at Oregon State University, were mar- ried for forty-eight years.

Through images that depict the brutal and savage beauty of the altered land- scapes of the Northwest’s rivers, forests, and mountains, he engages the social and political forces reshaping national dialogues that define environmental preservation and sustainablity. Brophy’s art reassesses the historical events and decisions that shaped the West. Focusing on the impact of the past on the present, Brophy sees this historic legacy as crucial to understanding the contemporary world and as a guide to shap- ing the future. Brophy’s paintings are not simple, moral lessons. Rather, this art offers a lens to rethink easily held assumptions about the environment and the history of the American West. Brophy’s scenes of defor- estation and economic progress serve to illuminate the complexities, contradictions, and irony of long- standing environmental policies and the American relationship with the Western landscape. Rock Hushka is a curator at the Tacoma Art Museum. He is the author of Lewis and Clark Ter- ritory: Contemporary Artists Revisit Place, Race, and Memory, among other books.

The outside world scarcely knew of north- western North America in the year 1700. The Pacific coast, from southcentral Alaska to Oregon’s Cape Blanco, was uncharted until the Spanish and English explorations of the 1770s. Yet, when tectonic plates suddenly shifted there in 1700, effects of the event reached the outside world within a day’s time. The plate motion set off a train of ocean waves – a tsunami that sped across the Pacific Ocean. When the waves came ashore in Japan, they flooded fields and washed away houses. Samurai, merchants, and villagers recorded the mysterious event, but they observed no storm and felt no par- ent earthquake. In Japan, this tsunami was an orphan. The Orphan Tsunami of 1700 tells this transpacific detective story by presenting its primary sources, Japanese documents and North American sediments and tree rings. The sources tell of a catastrophe, a century before Lewis and Clark’s expedition, that now guides preparations for future earthquakes and tsu- namis in the United States and Canada. Brian F.

These bound collections of hand-painted illustrations and handwritten text reveal how imperial China viewed culturally “other” fron- tier populations. They also contain valuable information for anthropologists, geographers, and historians, and are coveted by art collec- tors for their beautiful imagery. This lovely volume reproduces each of the eighty-two illustrations from the original album and the corresponding Chinese calligraphic text, along with an annotated English trans- lation. Each entry depicts a different ethnic group residing in Guizhou, in southwest China. The album is anonymous and dates from sometime after 1797. Laura Hostetler’s introduction discusses the genesis and evolution of the Miao album genre and the socio-political context in which the albums were first made, the ethnographic content of the texts, the composition of the illustrations, and the albums’ authorship and production. Color illustrations from other Miao albums and comparable works from other cultures give the reader a sense of the chromatic richness of Miao album illustrations and of their place in world ethnography. David Deal (1939-2001) was professor of history at Whitman College. Laura Hostetler is associate professor of history at the University of Illinois at Chicago. ”This book is a highly unusual and valuable project, comprising a difficult translation of a rare text.

The letters are a treasure trove of humor, anxiety, and hope, revealing a young man thrust into a war that he does not understand. Through this exceptional portal on the past, we learn of the tragic absurdity of war, of a soldier trained for naval warfare and then sent into land battle with weapons he’d never before fired; of command post latrines at which even commanding officers were sitting ducks; of the ghoulish trophies and mementos that soldiers collected from the battlefields. For Clubb, as for so many veterans, the war does not end with the victory over Japan. Despite the intervening years, Clubb finds that the haunting experiences of over half a century ago echo still. Even in the solitude of the forest, in the hunting parties he meets, in the animals he himself kills, he hears again the sound of battle, sees again the faces of the victims of war. Part letters, part memoir, and part scholarly analysis, this volume ranges over a vast, colorful, and weighted terri- tory, exploring the psychological terrain of a life disturbed, and forever changed, by war.

Baldasty This riveting book documents the role the media played in two murders revolving around charis- matic “Holy Roller” evangelist Edmund Creffield, who arrived in Corvallis in 1903. When female followers began refusing to speak to their nonbe- lieving husbands, vigilantes tarred and feathered Creffield, forcing him to flee to Seattle. There, Creffield was murdered by George Mitchell, whose defence of sister Esther’s honor was applauded by news media, and George was acquitted. However, Esther then shot him dead at Union Station and another moralizing media frenzy broke out. Esther was hospitalized and committed suicide a few years after her release. Gerald Baldasty’s examina- tion of media coverage shows how fiercely media protected traditional mores. Vigilante Newspapers illustrates how the media defined social deviance using vague concepts such as hysteria and tempo- rary insanity, vigorously defending the established order of religious, class, and gender norms.

Brown and Marshall Brown This volume of essays brings to English readers the work one of Europe’s most eminent scholars. Like all of Weinrich’s books, The Linguistics of Lying is written clearly, elegantly, and wittily for a broad general audience. Lying, he argues, is a function not of words, but of sentences; it belongs to the semantic aspect of language. His survey of the different ways in which language is untrue links linguistic and literary categories in unexpected fashion to anthropology, sociology, ethics and, finally, good manners.

C A UNIVERSITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES PRESS Indonesia’s Struggle Jemaah Islamiyah and the Soul of Islam Greg Barton Indonesian authorities responded quickly to the Bali bombing, tracking down leading Jemaah Is- lamiyah figures and bringing them to trial. Despite a subsequent attack in Jakarta, the attention of many people in the West has shifted to the Middle East and potential threats to Europe. Yet JI has the potential to mount new terrorist attacks and destabilize the world’s largest Muslim country. In this timely book, Greg Barton traces the reli- gious, cultural, and political development of JI, and argues that it has important features in com- mon with other organizations linked to al-Qaeda. Based on extensive research in Indonesia, the book assesses the level of support for JI and the Indonesian government’s success in dealing with the threat it poses. Barton argues that, while the Indonesian authorities reacted well to the events in Bali, their subsequent response has not been as ef- fective as is commonly assumed. He analyzes the recent election results and looks at the challenges facing the new Indonesian president.

This book explains what DNA is and then identifies its central role in so many everyday human experi- ences, including growth and development, aging, individuality and degenerative diseases. All discus- sion is in the context of the human body. The book then addresses the flood of new DNA- related information that has flowed from the recent revolution in biotechnology: information that is transforming the food we eat; the way medicine is practised, and even changing the ways in which crimes are solved. To be informed on all these topics of the moment requires an understanding of the basic principles of DNA biology. The book discusses many controversial issues relating to applications of biotechnology, including cloning, tissue culture, the human genome project, hor- mone treatment and IV fertilisation. DNA and Your Body is written for a general audi- ence, using non-technical language. All chapters begin with a boxed chapter summary and a list of Frequently Asked Questions, and there is a comprehensive glossary of terms. Each chapter ends with a discussion of the ethical considera- tions of some advances in DNA technology. The work contains some 14 explanatory black-line drawings. Colin Masters is a leading Australian neuroscien- tist. He is widely published with over two hundred refereed journal articles and four books.

The answers they received, presented here in Pacific Voices, are intimate, heartfelt, and in some cases, spellbinding. The exhibit became a vehicle for the expression of a variety of voices exploring sources of cultural identity – objects, rituals, ceremonies, and traditions that both anchor and showcase the ways of life of Pacific Rim communities. Each of the seventeen chapters highlights a unique cultural object: Rose Dang and Thuy Vu see the Vi- etnamese incense burner as a vehicle for carrying prayers; Iwalani Christian calls the Hawaiian pahu “the voice of the gods”; Reverend Dean Koyama describes the Japanese obutsudan as an altar for remembering loved ones; and Vi Hilbert presents the Coast Salish river canoe as “a place to learn patience.” Taken together, the stories  provide a fresh perspective on the multicultural world in which we live, as well as valuable insights into the diverse cultures of the Pacific Rim.

Although the Indian community of Celilo Village survives to this day as Oregon’s oldest continuously inhabited town, with the construction of the Dalles Dam in 1957, traditional uses of the river were catastroph- ically interrupted. Most non-Indians celebrated the new generation of hydroelectricity and the easy navigability of the river “highway” created by the dam, but Indians lost a sustaining center to their lives when Celilo Falls was inundated. Death of Celilo Falls is a story of ordinary lives in extraordinary circumstances as neighboring communities went through tremendous economic, environmental, and cultural change in a brief pe- riod. Katrine Barber examines the negotiations and controversies that took place during the planning and construction of the dam and the profound impact the project had on both the Indian com- munity of Celilo Village and the non-Indian town of The Dalles, intertwined with local concerns that affected the entire American West: treaty rights, federal Indian policy, environmental transformation of rivers, and the idea of “progress.” Katrine Barber is assistant professor of history at Portland State University and associate at the Center for Columbia River History.

Bring- ing Indians to the Book recounts the experiences of these explorers, and of the missionaries who preceded them. Though they differed greatly in methods and aims, missionaries and explorers shared a crucial underlying cultural characteristic: They were resolutely literate, carrying books not only in their baggage and saddlebags but also in their most commonplace thoughts and habits, and they came west in order to meet, and attempt to change, groups of people who for thousands of years had passed on their memories, learning, and values through words not written, but spo- ken or sung aloud. It was inevitable that, in this meeting of literate and oral societies, ironies and misunderstandings would abound. A skilled writer with a keen ear for language, Albert Furtwangler traces the ways in which literacy blinded those Euro-American invaders, even as he reminds us that such bookishness is also our own. Albert Furtwangler is an independent scholar affiliated with Willamette University and profes- sor emeritus, Mount Allison University.

Wondering what else Jim Pepper cut besides “Witchi Tai To”? This book will answer those questions and more as it opens up the world of Native American music. In addition to the widely heard sounds of Carlos Nakai’s flute, Native music embraces a wide range of forms: country and folk, jazz and swing, reggae and rap. Brian Wright-McLeod, producer/host of Canada’s longest-running Native radio program, has gathered the musicians and their music into this comprehensive reference, an authoritative source for biographies and discographies of hundreds of Native artists. The Encyclopedia of Native Music recognizes the multifaceted contributions made by Native recording artists by tracing the history of their commercially released music. It provides an overview of the surprising abundance of recorded Native music while underlining its historical value. With almost 1,800 entries spanning more than 100 years, this book leads readers from early performers of traditional songs like William Horncloud to artists of the new millennium such as Zotigh. Along the way, it includes entries for jazz and blues artists never widely acknowledged for their Na- tive roots – Oscar Pettiford, Mildred Bailey, and Keely Smith – and traces the recording histories of contemporary performers like Rita Coolidge and Jimmy Carl Black, “the Indian of the group” in the original Mothers of Inven- tion. It also includes film soundtracks and compilation albums that have been instrumental in bringing many artists to popular attention. In addition to music, it lists spoken-word recordings, including audio books, comedy, interviews, poetry, and more. With unprecedented breadth of coverage and extensive cross-referencing, The Encyclopedia of Native Music is an essential guide for enthusiasts and collectors. More than that, it is a gateway to the authentic music of North America – music of the people who have known this land from time immemo- rial and continue to celebrate it in sound. “This exhaustive, meticulously researched book is long overdue. The musical contributions of North America’s Aboriginal people have been ignored for far too long, and this volume offers credit, at last, to the singers, musicians and songwriters who  deserve it.  A fascinating, readable volume, full of information that has never been made available before.” – Richard Flohil, Editor, Applaud Magazine, and Canadian based writer, publicist and concert promoter. “The Encyclopedia of Native Music is a monumental reference work that will serve as an invaluable tool for anyone remotely interested in the rich diversity of recorded music by First Nations Peoples in North America.” – Rob Bowman, Grammy Award winning Professor of Music at York University and author of Soulsville U.S.A.: The Story of Stax Records. 26 O R D E R  F R O M  uniPRESSES TEL: 1 877 864 8477 UNIVERSITY PRESS OF NEW ENGLAND Running the Bulls Cathie Pelletier One year and six days into an unsatisfactory retirement, Howard Woods is awakened by his wife in the early hours of the morning to hear the news of a decades-old betrayal. He does not take it well. In his anger and grief, Howard upends his well-ordered life and, to the dismay of his family, announces his intention of traveling to Spain to join the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona. Having thrown his life into chaos, Howard finds that his wife is no longer willing to restore it to order, as she has always done in the past. Bewil- dered, vengeful, and lonely, Howard finds himself miserably committed to a Hemingway-inspired course of his own choosing but with little idea of how to change it or to achieve the resolution he desires. Cathie Pelletier’s novels have been praised as “hilarious, generous and genuine” (New Yorker), “bitingly original” (Vogue), “masterful,” (Washington Post), and “funny and unexpectedly moving” (New York Times). She is “absolutely, inherently funny,” says the Los Angeles Times, “yet she can walk the tightrope between humor and grief without once losing her balance.” In Running the Bulls, she is in top form. Cathie Pelletier is the critically acclaimed author of six novels published under her own name – most recently Beaming Sonny Home – and of two novels published under the pseudonym K. C. McKinnon.

Doyle The mean streets of Boston in the 1970s played host to a nefarious underworld of pimps, pushers, and addicts, and Paul ‘Sully’ Doyle was there. This undercover operative with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration met every type of unsavory character in town in his fight to bust violent drug rings during a turbulent era in the city’s history. Now Special Agent Doyle bluntly chronicles the riveting, true stories from his years on the inside. Known on the street by his alias, ‘Paulie Sullivan,’ he recalls his rookie days, trying to infiltrate the criminal drug world under the tutelage of his veteran partner, through his coming of age as an experienced narc—sharing his keen observations on ruined lives, personal peril, and government red tape along the way. A former prizefighter not at all shy about punching his way out of trouble, the author divulges a candid, worm’s-eye-view of the drug war with all its blemishes and glories. Combining gripping action with perceptive com- mentary, this unvarnished snapshot of one agent’s experiences undercover adeptly captures the violence, futility, and endless frustration of the war on drugs. As engrossing as a fiction thriller, Hot Shots and Heavy Hits provides a rare glimpse into a harsh world unknown to most of us. Paul E.

So why does this critically ac- claimed nature writer now declare himself to be “sick of nature”? In diverse, diverting, and frequently hilarious es- says, Gessner wrestles with father figures both biological and literary, reflects on the pleasures and absurdities of the writing life, explores the significance of place for both his work and his sense of well-being, and rails at the confines of the nature genre even as he continues to find fresh inspiration for his writing in the natural world. In the end, he learns to embrace—or at least toler- ate—the label he once rejected. Whether kicking at the limits of his category or explaining why he was fired from his job as a bookstore clerk; whether recalling his youthful obsession with Ultimate Frisbee or recounting an adventure in the jungles of Belize; whether lam- pooning his own writerly envy of Sebastian Junger or raging at the over-development of Cape Cod or searching for solace in nature in the wake of September 11, Gessner ranges from the personal to the natural in lyrical reflections on writing, self, and society.

C A UPNE WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY PRESS The Rise and Fall of the Broadway Musical Mark N. Grant A highly original, incisive, and spirited examination of the rise, heyday, and decline of American musi- cal theatre. Many of today’s Broadway shows, from Rent to The Lion King, have become commercial hits, but do they have the cultural importance or the dramatic and musical artistry of such enduring productions as Oklahoma!, Show Boat, or Kiss Me, Kate? Mark N. Grant traces the transformation of sing- ing and melody, libretto and lyric writing, dance rhythms, sound design, and choreography and stage direction through three distinct eras: the formative period (1866–1927), the golden age (1927–1966), and the fall (1967 to the present). He explores how and why the unsophisticated genre of pre-1927 musical comedy evolved into the creative, innovative, and immensely popular theatre produced by the likes of Rodgers and Ham- merstein and then steadily faded as a significant entertainment genre in American culture, giving rise to the “McMusicals” of today. This provocative, sometimes irreverent work offers a refreshing perspective on the history of Ameri- can musical theatre and provides strong views on restoring the genre to its former greatness. It will appeal to anyone interested in the history of theatre, and the Broadway musical in particular. Mark N. Grant is a composer and writer. He is the author of Maestros of the Pen: A History of Classical Music Criticism in America, winner of the ASCAP–Deems Taylor Award. 2004 392 pages, 21 illus., 6 x 9” ISBN1-55553-642-5 pb $29.95 Performing Arts / History Drawing on his background as an ethnomusicolo- gist as well as years of experience as an accom- plished jazz musician, Paul Austerlitz argues that jazz—and the world-view or consciousness that surrounds it—embodies an aesthetic of inclusive- ness, reaching out from its African American base to embrace all of humanity. Fans and musicians have made this claim before, but Austerlitz is the first to provide a scholarly basis for it. He examines jazz in relation to race and national identity in the U.S. and then broadens his scope to consider jazz within the African diaspora and in very different transnational scenes, from the Dominican Republic to Finland. Drawing on extensive fieldwork, the book explores jazz in an extraordinary range of contexts. One of the central chapters is devoted to the history of the groundbreaking Latin jazz band of Machito and his Afro-Cubans, who were inspired by the dancing of both Harlemites and Jewish mamboniks, while the final chapter includes an extensive interview with the seminal drummer Mil- ton Graves, one of Austerlitz’s mentors, who holds that music profoundly influences our biorhythms and indeed shapes our thoughts. Paul Austerlitz is an ethnomusicologist, musician, and author of Merengue: Dominican Music and Do- minican Identity. He is Assistant Professor of Music and Africana Studies at Brown University.

They emerged early in the 20th century, in 1909 and matured in 1972 and 1978. They remain a prominent part of today’s conflicted politics and advancing industrial growth. The Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, under the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909, became a model to the world for environmental management across an international boundary. Evolution of the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement recounts this historic binational relationship, an agreement intended to protect the fragile Great Lakes. One strength of the agreement is its flexibility, which includes a requirement for periodic review that allows modification as problems are solved, conditions change, or scientific research reveals new problems. The first progress was made in the 1970s in the area of eutrophication, the process by which lakes gradually age, which normally takes thou- sands of years to progress, but is accelerated by modern water pollution. The bi-national agreement led to the successful lowering of phosphorus levels that saved Lake Erie, and led to the identification and lowering of the levels of toxic contaminants that cause major threats to human and wildlife health.

This book examines the public language of the war on terrorism, and the way that rhetoric has been deployed to justify and normalise a global counter-ter- rorist campaign. More specifically, it explains how the political and cultural meaning of the September 11, 2001 attacks came to be dominated by a single war-based interpreta- tion; how the abuse of prisoners in Iraq was normalised through language and practice; how the language of counter-terrorism constructs American identity; how officials deliberately manipulate public anxiety about terrorist threats; and how popular political and cultural narratives are deployed to gain public consent for official counter-terrorism policies. Writing the War on Terrorism explores how the war on terrorism has been reproduced and amplified by key social actors and how it has become the dominant political narra- tive in America today, enjoying widespread bipartisan and popular support. The author argues that the normalisation and institu- tionalisation of the administration’s current counter-terrorism approach is damaging to society’s ethical values and to democratic political participation.

C A MANCHESTER UNIVERSITY  PRESS Beginning Shakespeare both introduces stu- dents to the study of Shakespeare and grounds their understandings of his work in theoretical discourses. It breaks down both fears and pre- conceptions to offer students both a map of the current critical practices of others and a sense of the possibilities for developing their own. After iintroducing dominant approaches of the past, seven further chapters introduce the major current critical approaches to Shakespeare, with separate chapters on psychoanalysis, New Historicism, Cultural Materialism, gender studies and queer theory, postcolonial criticism and performance criticism, and one examining the growing roles of biography, attribution studies, and textual studies. Each chapter also offers a list of suggested further reading and interactive exercises focusing on key facts and issues raised in the chapter. The way each chapter analyses the strengths and weaknesses of each perspective allows students a clear understanding of each approach and enables them to make informed choices between them, thus suggesting ways of continuing to make mean- ing out of Shakespeare which are both theoretically informed and new. An invaluable introduction for anyone studying English at university, ‘Beginning Shakespeare’, by addressing what is primarily at stake in these various theoretical approaches and by mapping the territory, ultimately allows students to negotiate it for themselves.

In contrast with Tan’s own American-born nar- rators, and mainstream critics, Bella Adams’s study looks beyond the stereotypes which appear in Tan’s books, and explores the ways in which Chinese immigrants and their American relatives struggle to understand each other’s ‘best qualities’ via the Chinese tradition of the ‘talk story’. She emphasises Tan’s American narrators’ process of becoming Chinese and discovering ‘real China’, and the significance of the ironic staging of these moments.

It is the first book to cover the whole of Godard’s career, from the early successes of the French New Wave, through the political works of the late 1960s and 1970s and the difficult films of the 1980s, to the recent triumphs of  Histoire(s) du cinéma and Eloge de l’amour. Drawing on a wide range of literary, filmic and philiosophical texts, the book places Godard’s work within its intellectual context in France, ex- amining how developments in French culture and thought since 1950 have been mirrored in - and sometimes anticipated by – Godard’s films. At the same time, numerous sequences from Godard’s films are singled out for close analysis in order to demonstrate how the director’s radical approaches to narrative, editing, sound and shot composition have made the cinema into an analytical tool in its own right, a machine for thinking.

A series of themes of wide relevance are explored and discussed in the context of their impact upon the form of the city and its success as a capital. These include the European influence on urban and architectural form; the synthesis of architecture, landscape and topography; the dialogue between conservation and innovation; the search for social, economic and cultural sustainability; and the role of governance and public action in urban ecology A special feature of the book is the way the Old and New Towns are discussed as a connected problem of image and politics, rather than two isolated events in the history of the city. Likewise the relations between the city centre, the suburban edge and beyond throughout the 20th century are examined holistically, allowing the reader to gain a broader perspective both of the city of today and of the future.  What emerges is a city unique – at least in the UK – in terms of the care taken over its image and sense of identity, and the political and institutional investment made in preserving this.

The book provides rare insights into Al Jazeera’s politics, its agenda, its programs, its coverage of regional crises, and its treatment of the West. The authors attempt to gauge the station’s impact on ordinary Arab viewers, understand its effect on an increasingly visible Arab public sphere, and map out the role it plays in regional Arab politics. The image of Al Jazeera that emerges from this book is much more complex than its depiction in Ameri- can media. It reveals the powerful role that the network plays in shaping ideas and reconstructing Arab identities during a crucial juncture in Middle Eastern history and politics.

MAY 2005 224 pages, 6 x 9” ISBN 1-59451-126-8 pb $23.95 Politics / Media Studies The Al Jazeera Phenomenon: Critical Perspectives on New Arab Media Mohamed Zayani With contributions by five Nobel Peace Prize win- ners, former government officials, scholars, reli- gious leaders, journalists, activists, and prominent cultural figures, the documentary film XXI Century explores American reactions to recent global events captured through the lens of interviews and political rallies. This book presents selected excerpts from the filming of prominent U.S. citi- zens voicing their views on Bush administration policies in the new century. These events include the much-contested 2000 election, the September 11, 2001 attacks, the impact of the USA Patriot Act, the accelerated growth of peace movements, the recruitment of U.S. soldiers, U.S. policy and attitudes toward the Middle East, sanctions and war in Iraq, and human rights violations. The speak- ers also consider how the rise of media spectacle and punditry at the expense of quality journalism inhibits the ability of Americans to react to these events as informed citizens. The voices of Ameri- cans, both ordinary and famous, resonate with passion and urgency in response to the injustice and far-reaching effects of the current U.S. foreign policy. American Voices of Dissent highlights the other side of the story and makes a case for global solidarity against U.S. imperialism. Featuring Leslie Cagan, Noam Chomsky, Ramsey Clark, Angela Davis, Curt Goering, Amy Good- man, Arno J. Mayer, Greg Palast, Katha Pollitt, Scott Ritter, Danny Schechter, Pete Seeger, Gore Vidal, Edmund White, Howard Zinn, and survivors of 9/11.
