The result of a milestoneresearch project of the Centre for Canadian Studies at MountAllison University, the Canadian Democratic Audit series makes amonumental contribution to our understanding of political life inCanada.Much has been written in recent years concerning the ?democraticdeficit and malaise? afflicting Canada, and there is substantialevidence that many citizens are dissatisfied with the state of ourdemocratic practices and institutions. At the same time, phenom-ena such as increased pressures of globalization and changingcommunications technologies pose new challenges to Canadianpolitics. To consider these issues, a team of top political scientistsfrom across the country has come together to conduct thiscentury?s first wide-ranging examination of democracy in Canada.The audit comprises a series of volumes, each examining adifferent aspect of Canadian democracy. Throughout the series,three central questions guide the investigation: How participatory isCanadian democracy? How responsive are our political institutions?How inclusive is our public decision making?Expertly designed to introduce students at all levels to the funda-mentals of Canada?s democratic institutions, this series will also beof interest to scholars, policymakers, journalists, politicians, andanybody interested in the current state of democracy in Canada.Further information on the Canadian Democratic Audit project canbe found at www.CanadianDemocraticAudit.caJohn CourtneyElectionsOpen and competitive elections governed bywidely accepted rules and procedures areessential to any political system?s legitimacy.This volume, by eminent political scientist JohnCourtney, assesses the history and develop-ment of five ?building blocks? of Canada?selectoral regime: the franchise, electoraldistricts, voter registration, election machin-ery, and plurality voting.Arguing that on balance, Canada?s electoralregime can be judged to be truly democratic,the book demonstrates the vast improvementsthat have been made over the years: the rightto vote is generously interpreted; the processof redrawing electoral districts is no longer inthe hands of elected officials; voter registra-tion lists include all but a small share of eligiblevoters; and those who manage and superviseelections on behalf of all citizens are honestand trustworthy officials. Using the recentpush for the reform of the plurality votesystem as one example, it also examines whycertain electoral institutions have beenamenable to change and others have not.In a democracy such as Canada?s, it isimportant for citizens to understand the mostessential parts of their electoral system.Elections is designed with this goal in mind.A concise analysis of complex issues, itpresents reasoned judgments on links be-tween electoral institutions and representativedemocracy, and is an ideal primer for under-graduate students, journalists, politicians,and anyone interested the current state ofCanadian democracy.POLITICSWWW.UBCPRESS.CA/DEMOCRATICAUDITMARCH192 pages est., 5? x 8??hc $65.00ISBN 0-7748-0917-5John Courtney is aprofessor of politicalscience at the Universityof Saskatchewan.THE CANADIANDEMOCRATIC AUDITElectionsJohn Courtney(see page 1)Political PartiesWilliam Cross(see page 2)CitizensElisabeth Gidengil,Andr?

They choose our prime ministers,premiers, and candidates for public office;they decide which policy issues are consideredin the provincial and federal legislatures; theydominate our election campaigns. As a result,a democracy that is participatory, responsive,and inclusive can only be achieved if Canadianpolitical parties share these values andoperate in a manner respecting them. In aconcise and accessible manner, this bookdelves into the history, structure, mechanisms,and roles of Canada?s political parties, andassesses the degree to which Canadians todaycan rely on political parties as vehicles forgrassroots participation.With an emphasis on Canada?s federal parties,Cross examines party membership, candidaterecruitment, leadership selection, policydevelopment, election campaigning, andparty financing. Throughout, he maintains aclear focus on how well Canadian parties areserving the Canadian people. In keeping withthe aims of the Democratic Audit project, heinterrogates their performance in terms ofparticipation, inclusiveness, and responsive-ness.

Instead, Aboriginal identity is framedin terms of cultural and national traits, whileself-government is taken to represent anAboriginal desire to protect those traits.Shifting Boundaries challenges this view,arguing that it fosters a woefully incompleteunderstanding of the politics of self-govern-ment.Using relational pluralism as a theoretical lens,Schouls contends that Aboriginal self-govern-ment is better understood when an ?identifica-tion? perspective is adopted instead of a?cultural? or ?national? one. He shows that self-government is not about preserving culturaland national differences as goods in and ofthemselves, but rather is about equalizingcurrent imbalances in power to allow Aborigi-nal peoples to construct their own identities.Shifting Boundaries adds an importantperspective to existing theoretical approachesto Aboriginal self-government. It will appeal toacademics, students, and policy analystsinterested in Aboriginal governance, culturalstudies, political theory, nationalism studies,and constitutional theory.Tim Schouls divides his time between the Universityof British Columbia and Capilano College, teachingand doing research in Canadian politics, Aboriginalgovernance issues, and political theory.2003240 pages, 6 x 9?hc $80.00, ISBN 0-7748-1046-7In an original approach to the subject,McAllister pays particular attention to smallerand more remote cities of Canada.

Atthe beginning of the decade, it seemed thatfiscal deficits were intractable, yet by the endof the decade, Ottawa had taken remarkableactions to eliminate its budgetary shortfallsand had successfully eradicated its deficits.How such a radical change of political coursecame to pass is still not well understood.This book offers the first comprehensivescholarly account of this vital public policyissue.

Canadi-ans, despite their national penchant for environ-mental discussion, have fallen behind their G-8peers in both domestic commitments andinternational actions. In a cogent examinationof the issue, eight authors demonstrate howCanada?s configuration of political and economicinstitutions has limited effective environmentalpolicy. Canadian environmental institutions, theauthors argue, have produced an integrity gap:the sustainability rhetoric adopted by policy-makers fails to achieve concrete results. Inan analysis that penetrates several policydomains and combines various disciplinary,sectoral, and geographic perspectives, theauthors demonstrate how Canada fell fromleader to laggard within the internationalenvironmental community.Placing the study of Canadian environmentalpolicy within a sound theoretical framework forthe first time, this book makes a significantcontribution to existing policy scholarship.It will find an enthusiastic audience amongpolitical scientists, neo-institutional theorists,policy analysts, and students at both under-graduate and graduate levels.Eugene Lee is a member of the Department ofPolitical Science, Sookmyung Women?s University,Korea.

He concludes that distrust inpolicy networks is, for the most part, misplacedbecause high levels of performance by policynetworks are more common than many politicalanalysts and citizens expect.

Creffield, a charismatic, self-styledmessiah, taught his followers to forsake theirfamilies and worldly goods and to seeksalvation through him. As his teachingsbecame more extreme, the local communityreacted: Creffield was tarred and featheredand his followers were incarcerated in thestate asylum. Creffield himself was imprisonedfor adultery, but later revived the sect. Thisproved too much for some of the adherents?families, and in May 1906, Creffield waspursued to Seattle and shot dead by GeorgeMitchell, the brother of two women in the sect.The authors take us into the courtroom for thesensational trial, as Mitchell was acquitted ofmurder. Though the formal plea was insanity,the defence built its case on the unwritten lawthat justified killing to protect or avenge familyhonour. Based on court records and archivalsources, this case study sheds light on therise of ardent religion in the Pacific Northwest,the justice system in Seattle, and the role ofthe press in influencing public opinion.Jim Phillips is Director of the Centre of Criminologyand a professor in the Faculty of Law and Depart-ment of History.

Not all were ill-fatedairmen, shot down in the fury of battle. In fact, some were thereby design. As volunteers who risked their lives in extremelyhazardous assignments, almost one hundred Canadians servedthe Allied forces by passing as locals in occupied countries.At the behest of two secret British services, these men madelanguage and custom their costumes and wove themselvesinto the social fabric of France, Italy, Yugoslavia, Hungary,Burma, Malaya, and Sarawak. As ?citizens? of these countries,they were uniquely positioned to assist resistance groups insabotage and ambush missions, and to smuggle Allied airmenout of the occupied territories. Quiet heroes of the war, thesebold Canadians helped to make the brutal and unrelentingwarfare of the underground a potent weapon in the Alliedarsenal.Out of print for more than two decades, this bestselling bookrecognizes the unique contribution of these individuals to theunderground war effort in WWII. It is also a study of unstintingpersonal courage in the face of overwhelming odds.

Its cause was just; it ended the Depres-sion; and Canada?s contribution was nothing less than stellar.Canadians had every reason to applaud themselves, and theheroes that made the nation proud. But the dark truth was thatnot all Canadians were saints or soldiers. Indeed, many weresinners.In this eye-opening and captivating reassessment of Canadiancommitment to the cause, some disturbing questions cometo light. Were citizens working as hard as possible to backthe war effort?  Was there illegal profiting from the conflict?Did Canadian society suffer from a general decline of ?morality?during the war?  Would women truly ?back the attack? in newfactory jobs and the military, and then quietly return home?Would unattended youth produce a crisis with juvenile delin-quency?  How would Canada reintegrate a million veterans who,policymakers feared, would create a social crisis if treated liketheir Great War counterparts?The first-ever synthesis of both the patriotic and the problematicin wartime Canada, Saints, Sinners, and Soldiers shows howmoral and social changes, and the fears they generated,precipitated numerous, and often contradictory, legacies inlaw and society.  From labour conflicts, to the black market,to prostitution, and beyond, Keshen acknowledges the under-belly of Canada?s Second World War, and demonstrates thatthe ?Good War? was a complex tapestry of social forces ? notall of which were above reproach.

W.H. Seward, theUS secretary of state who brokered thepurchase of Alaska, believed that the acquisitionwould permit the US to dominate the Pacific. Inthe 1990s, Bill Clinton attempted to install anAmerican ballistic missile defence system on theislands. But for most Americans, prior to theWWII, the bleak and barren islands were of farless interest than the Philippines.In Stepping Stones to Nowhere, Galen Perrasshows how that changed with the Japaneseoccupation of the western Aleutians. Efforts tomake the area a major theatre of war rivallingEurope or the South Pacific foundered, butcertainly not for lack of effort.

Over a thirdof its defenders were killed in battle or died incaptivity; those who survived seldom spokeabout their experiences; and written accountsrecorded while in combat were largely de-stroyed during the Japanese occupation. Theonly primary historical material that remainswas written from memory in POW camps,or years after the fact.This book represents the first attempt to piecetogether all existing accounts of the December1941 fighting between the Garrison and theinvading Japanese. Banham makes use of theGarrison?s small size ? only 14,000 soldiers ?to weave a historical account from the per-spectives of individuals, rather than bigbattalions. His story covers the fighting phaseby phase, and considers the individual actionsthat made up the battle, the military strategies,and the many controversies that arose bothduring the struggle and after.Military historians interested in the Hong Kongbattle, and the role of Canadian and Britishforces in the combat, will welcome this originaland comprehensive account.Tony Banham has been studying the Battle of HongKong for well over a decade and has writtenextensively on the subject.JANUARY452 pages, 10 b/w illus., 17 maps, 6 x 9?pb $29.95, ISBN 0-7748-1045-9North American rights only.NOW IN PAPERBACK15John R. HindeWhen Coal Was KingLadysmith and the Coal-MiningIndustry on Vancouver IslandThe town of Ladysmith was one of the mostimportant coal-mining communities onVancouver Island during the early twentiethcentury. The Ladysmith miners had a reputa-tion for radicalism and militancy and engagedin bitter struggles for union recognition andeconomic justice, most notably the GreatStrike of 1912-14. This strike, one of thelongest and most violent labour disputes inCanadian history, marked a watershed in thehistory of the town and the coal industry.This book explains the origins of the 1912-14strike by examining the development of thecoal industry on Vancouver Island, the found-ing of Ladysmith, the experience of work andsafety in the mines, the process of politicaland economic mobilization, and how thesefactors contributed to the development ofidentity and community.

This bookchallenges this premise, arguing that co-management and land claims processes,based as they are on European concepts of?knowledge? and ?property,? are in many waysincompatible with First Nations beliefs andpractices regarding human-animal-landrelations. To participate effectively in theseprocesses, Aboriginal peoples have had todevelop bureaucracies that parallel those ofthe governments with which they must deal.These bureaucracies reproduce existing powerrelations and compel Aboriginal peoples tospeak and act in uncharacteristic ways. Asa result, Nadasdy argues, land claims and co-management may be working to undermine thevery way of life they are supposed to protect.Based on the author?s fieldwork in BurwashLanding, a village of seventy people, most ofwhom are members of the Kluane First Nation,this book is a revealing exploration of how landclaims and co-management, as aspects of anevolving relationship between the Kluane FirstNation and the state, are affecting Kluanepeople and their way of life.Paul Nadasdy is Assistant Professor of Anthropol-ogy and American Indian Studies at the Universityof Wisconsin-Madison.2003328 pages, 23 b/w illus., 3 maps, 6 x 9?hc $85.00, ISBN 0-7748-0983-3?

In Tsawalk, hereditary chief Umeekintroduces us to an alternative indigenousworldview ? an ontology drawn from the Nuu-chah-nulth origin stories.?Tsawalk,? meaning ?one,? encapsulates theNuu-chah-nulth understanding of the natureof existence. It serves as the foundation ofan indigenous theory, whereby the universeis seen as an integrated and orderly wholeand the physical and the spiritual are seenas part of a the same continuum. By retellingand analyzing the origin stories of the Sonof Raven and the Son of Mucus, Umeekdemonstrates how tsawalk provides a viablealternative that both complements andexpands the worldview presented by Westernscience. Tsawalk, he argues, allows for thepossibility of combining both Western andindigenous worldviews in order to advanceour understanding of the universe. In addition,he shows how various fundamental aspectsof Nuu-chah-nulth society are based upon thisconcept, and what implications it has todayfor both Native and non-Native peoples.A valuable contribution to Native studies,anthropology, philosophy, and the studyof science, Tsawalk offers a revitalizing andthoughtful complement to Western scientificworldviews.NATIVE STUDIESWWW.UBCPRESS.CA/NATIVESTUDIESAPRIL632 pages, 6 x 9?2 mapshc $125.00ISBN 0-7748-1002-5FIRST NATIONS LANGUAGES SERIESWayne Suttles isProfessor Emeritus ofAnthropology at PortlandState University.Wayne SuttlesMusqueam Reference GrammarHere is the long-awaited grammar of theMusqueam dialect of Halkomelem, whichWayne Suttles began work on in the late1950s.

This book bringstogether the most recent research on theculture history and archaeology of a regionof longstanding anthropological importance,whose complex societies represent the mostprominent examples of hunters and gatherers.Combining archaeology, ethnohistory, andethnography, this collection investigatesseveral aspects of this cultural complexity,carrying on the intellectual traditions of DonaldH. Mitchell and Wayne Suttles. Its interdiscipli-nary approach creates a broader context inwhich to interpret the past. The generouslyillustrated chapters address a wide range oftopics, and include original and penetratinganalyses of the fur trade, migration, householdstructures, and precontact metallurgy andarchitecture.Scholars and students of archaeology andanthropology, and those with an interestin Northwest Coast history, will find thisvolume especially rewarding.R.G.

ObedientAutonomy analyzes this model, and explains itsprecepts by examining the highly organizeddiscipline of archaeology in China.The book follows Chinese students on theirjourney to becoming full-fledged archaeologistsin a bureaucracy-saturated environment.

McIlwraith?s Field Letters,1922?4Between 1922 and 1924, the young Canadiananthropologist T.F. McIlwraith spent elevenmonths in the isolated community of BellaCoola, British Columbia, living among the peopleof the Nuxalk First Nation. During his time there,McIlwraith gained intimate knowledge of theNuxalk culture and of their struggle to survivein the face of massive depopulation, loss oftraditional lands, and the efforts of the Canadiangovernment to ban the potlatch. McIlwraith?sresulting ethnography, The Bella Coola Indians(1948), is widely considered the finest publishedstudy of a Northwest Coast First Nation.This volume is a rich complement to McIlwraith?sclassic work, incorporating his letters from thefield with previously unpublished essays on theNuxalk.

Gutenberg inShanghai is a brilliant examination of thisprocess. It finds the origins of that revolutionin the country?s printing industries of the lateimperial period and analyzes their subsequentdevelopment in the Republican era.Under diverse social, political, and economicinfluences, this technological and culturalrevolution saw woodblock printing replacedwith Western mechanical processes. Thisbook, which relies on documents previouslyunavailable to both Western and Chineseresearchers, demonstrates how Westerntechnology and evolving traditional valuesresulted in the birth of a unique form of printcapitalism whose influence on Chinese culturewas far-reaching and irreversible. Its conclu-sion contests scholarly arguments that viewChina?s technological development as slowedby culture, or that interpret Chinese modernityas mere cultural continuity.Christopher A.

While manystudies have focused on women who seek toprotect the natural environment, few haveexplored the perspectives of women who seekto maintain resource use.This book goes beyond the dichotomies of?pro? and ?anti? environmentalism to tell thestories of these women. Maureen G. Reeduses participatory action research to explainthe experiences of women who seek to protectforestry as an industry, a livelihood, a commu-nity, and a culture. She links their experiencesto policy making by considering the effects ofenvironmental policy changes on the socialdynamics of workplaces, households, andcommunities in forestry towns of BritishColumbia?s temperate rainforest.

How do these changesto job training affect disadvantaged workersand the unemployed?In an insightful and comprehensive discus-sion of job education in Canada, Cohen andher contributors pool findings from a five-year collaborative study of training pro-grams. Good training programs, they argue,are essential in providing people who arechronically disadvantaged in the workplacewith tools to acquire more secure, better-paying jobs. In the ongoing shift toward aneoliberal economic model, governmentpolicies have engendered a growing relianceon private and market-based trainingschemes.

Clark isPresident and Vice-Chancellor Emeritus ofDalhousie University, aformer Vice-PresidentAcademic at theUniversity of Guelph,and former Professorof Chemistry at theUniversities of BritishColumbia and WesternOntario.Over the last fifty years, Canadian universi-ties have experienced remarkable change.The explosion of a so-called ?knowledge-based? economy, increasing corporatepresence and funding on campus, and theunprecedented rise in enrolment, amongother factors, have all played significantroles in the shaping of the modern Canadianuniversity.In this thoughtful book, Howard C. Clarkconsiders how such changes to growth andgovernance have altered the nature of theinstitution itself. Tracing the development ofthe university from the end of the SecondWorld War, through the seismic changes inthe 1960s and 70s, Clark argues that whileCanadian universities made remarkableaccomplishments during this period, theywere ill prepared for the financial constraintsof the 1980s and early 1990s. As a result,they were left in a state of institutionalparalysis that has hindered their ability toadapt to the needs of a changing society.Comparing the present state of Canada?suniversities to those of the United States, theUnited Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand,Clark concludes that Canadian governmentshave been far less willing to legislatechanges in university governance than theirAnglophone counterparts.Historians of education, cultural historians,university administrators, government policymakers, and those with a stake in publiceducation will welcome this important volumeby one of Canada?s most respected univer-sity administrators and educators.?

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