Respondingto a United Nations call to assist the South Koreanregime, Canada deployed an 8,000-strong brigade tothe peninsula to fight as part of an American-led UNforce.This comprehensive account of the Canadian campaignin Korea provides the first detailed study of the training,leadership, operations, and tactics of the brigade undereach of its three wartime commanders as well as itsrelationship with American and Commonwealth allies.An impeccably researched analytical history, the bookexamines the often uneven performance of the variousCanadian units and argues that the soldiers of the?Special Force? initially sent to Korea were more thoroughand professional in their operations than were the army?sregular battalions, who eventually replaced them at thefront.The revisionist interpretations in A War of Patrols willattract both academic and military professionals, as wellas general readers interested in a fresh look at animportant part of Canada?s military past.?This is far and away the most valuable study of theCanadians in Korea.

He has writtenextensively on the subject,aided in the production oftelevision documentaries,and helped many childrenof veterans in theirresearch into their fathers?war years.The Aleutian Islands, a mostly forgottenportion of the United States on the south-west coast of Alaska, have often assumeda key role in American military strategy.W.H. Seward believed that acquiring Alaskawould permit America to dominate thePacific. Bill Clinton recently attempted toinstall an American ballistic missile defencesystem on the islands. But for most Ameri-cans, prior to the Second World War, thebarren and bleak islands were of far lessinterest than the Philippines.In Stepping Stones to Nowhere, GalenPerras shows how all that changed with theJapanese occupation of the westernAleutians, which climaxed in the horrendousbattle for Attu. Efforts to make the area amajor theatre of war rivalling Europe or theSouth Pacific foundered, but certainly not forlack of effort. Yet this campaign was uniquein its involvement of Britain, the Soviet Union,and Canada. Perras reveals how this clash inthe North Pacific demonstrated seriousproblems with the way that Americandecision makers ? civilian and military ?sought to incite a global conflict.A thoroughly researched and accessiblevolume, this book will be invaluable tomilitary and naval historians, as well as thosewith a general interest in the history of theSecond World War.Until now, the story of the Battle of HongKong has defied a coherent retelling. Over athird of its defenders were killed in battle ordied in captivity, while those who survivedseldom spoke about their experiences; andwritten accounts recorded while in combatwere largely destroyed during the Japaneseoccupation. The only primary historicalmaterial that remains was written frommemory in POW camps, or years after theevent.This book represents the first attempt topiece together all existing accounts of theDecember 1941 fighting between theGarrison and the invading Japanese.Banham makes use of the Garrison?s smallsize ? only 14,000 soldiers ? to weave ahistorical account from the perspectives ofindividuals, rather than big battalions. Hisstory covers the fighting phase by phase,and considers the individual actions thatmade up the battle, the military strategies,and the many controversies that arose bothduring the struggle and after.Military historians interested in the HongKong battle, and the role of Canadian andBritish forces in the combat, will welcomethis original and comprehensive account.*RIGHTS RESTRICTIONS: North American rights only.?This is something ofan international history,drawing on material fromAustralia, Canada, GreatBritain, and the UnitedStates.

BussBetween 1860 and 1940, Anglican mission-aries were very active in northern BritishColumbia, the Yukon, and the NorthwestTerritories. To date, histories of this missionwork have largely focused on men, while theactivities of women ? either as missionarywives or as missionaries in their own right ?have been seen as peripheral, if not com-pletely overlooked.Based on diaries, letters, and missioncorrespondence, Women and the White Man?sGod is the first comprehensive examination ofwomen?s roles in northern domestic missions.The status of women in the Anglican Church,gender relations in the mission field, andencounters between Aboriginals and mission-aries are carefully scrutinized.

Recently, however, sex workers havebegun to demand not pity, but rights asworkers in the global economy.This book explores how Thai national identity insuch an economy is linked to prostitution andgender. Jeffrey asserts that certain images of?The Prostitute? have silenced discourses ofprostitution as work, while fostering the idea ofthe peasant woman as the embodiment ofnational culture. This idea, coupled with a will toshape the modern state through the behaviourof middle-class men, has been a main concernof Thai prostitution policy.

Reed isAssociate Professor,Department of Geography,University of Saskatch-ewan.This thoughtful collection exposes the gapbetween rhetoric and performance inCanada?s response to environmentalchallenges. Canadians, despite their nationalpenchant for environmental discussion, havefallen behind their G-8 peers in both domes-tic commitments and international actions.In a cogent examination of the issue, eightauthors demonstrate how Canada?s configu-ration of political and economic institutionshas limited effective environmental policy.Canadian environmental institutions, theauthors argue, have produced an integritygap: the sustainability rhetoric adoptedby policymakers fails to achieve concreteresults. In an analysis that penetrates severalpolicy domains and combines variousdisciplinary, sectoral, and geographicperspectives, the authors demonstrate howCanada fell from leader to laggard within theinternational environmental community.Placing the study of Canadian environmentalpolicy within a sound theoretical frameworkfor the first time, this book makes a signifi-cant contribution to existing policy scholar-ship. It will find an enthusiastic audienceamong political scientists, neo-institutionaltheorists, policy analysts, and students atboth undergraduate and graduate levels.Environmental activism in rural placesfrequently pits residents whose livelihooddepends on resource extraction againstthose who seek to protect natural spacesand species. While many studies havefocused on women who seek to protect thenatural environment, few have explored theperspectives of women who seek to maintainresource use.This book goes beyond the dichotomies of?pro? and ?anti? environmentalism to tell thestories of these women. Maureen Reed usesparticipatory action research to explain theexperiences of women who seek to protectforestry as an industry, a livelihood, acommunity, and a culture. She links theirexperiences to policy making by consideringthe effects of environmental policy changeson the social dynamics of workplaces,households, and communities in forestrytowns of British Columbia?s temperaterainforest. The result is a critical commen-tary about the social dimensions ofsustainability in rural communities.A powerful and challenging book, TakingStands provides a crucial understanding ofcommunity change in resource-dependentregions, and helps us to better tackle thecomplexities of gender and activism as theyrelate to rural sustainability. Social andenvironmental geographers, feministscholars, and those engaged in rural studies,environmental sustainability, and communityplanning will find it invaluable.ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIESWWW.UBCPRESS.CA/ENVIRONMENTALSTUDIES11 FOR MORE INFORMATION VISIT WWW.UBCPRESS.CARestoration of theGreat LakesPromises, Practices,and PerformancesEdited by Yoshiya IwaiAnatomy of a Conflict explores the culturalaspects of the fierce dispute between activistloggers and environmentalists over the fate ofOregon?s temperate rain forest. Centred on thepractice of old-growth logging and the survivalof the northern spotted owl, the conflict hasled to the burning down of ranger stations, thespiking of trees, blockades of logging trucks,and countless demonstrations and arrests.Satterfield shows how the debate about theforest is, at its core, a debate about the culturalmake-up of the Pacific Northwest. To talk aboutforests is to talk about culture, whether thediscussion is about scientific explanations ofconifer forests, activists?  grassroots emotionalattachment to the land, or the implications ofpast people?s land use for future forest manage-ment.  An engaging ethnographic study, thisbook makes a significant contribution to culture-and identity-driven theories of human action inthe context of social movements and environ-mental studies.Terre Satterfield is a research scientist withDecision Research in Eugene, Oregon, and AssistantProfessor of Culture, Risk, and the Environment atthe University of British Columbia?s SustainableDevelopment Research Institute, and at the Institutefor Resources and the Environment.JANUARY208 pages, 6 x 9?11 b/w illus.pb $24.95ISBN 0-7748-0893-4*Rights restrictions: US paperback rights held by MichiganState University PressAnatomy of a ConflictIdentity, Knowledge, andEmotion in Old-Growth ForestsMark Sproule-JonesForestry and the ForestIndustry in JapanIn recent years, Japan, like many other forest-dependent nations, has been facing difficulttimes: forest self-sufficiency is low; unplantedareas after harvesting are increasing; andforest industries and companies are losinginternational competitiveness in the globalmarket.Such challenges, however, are not unique toJapan but are relevant ? and all too familiar ?to forest industry stakeholders around theworld.

Thiscollection explores the intersection of inter-dependency and the law, and contemplatessome of the key issues at stake in the way thelaw interprets and addresses human relation-ships.Part of a series that questions fundamentalconcepts of law, this book looks critically atthe legal concepts that have framed theserelationships: contract, fiduciary duty, the?duty to act fairly,? the impartiality of decisionmakers, and privileged communication. Manyof these obscure the element of interdepend-ency.

Scholars fromnearly all disciplines use the notion of a public-private divide as a means to order knowledgeand better understand the mechanisms thatgovern and shape human behaviour andinstitutions. In legal and socio-legal analysis,the distinction informs the differences betweenstate and non-state actors and between publicgood and private property.This rich collection of essays explores how thepublic-private divide influences, challenges, andinteracts with law and law reform.

WasSymes disadvantaged on the basis ofgender, or unfairly privileged on the basisof class? This book seeks answers to thosequestions through close attention to theSymes case, where class and genderinterests clashed over the tax treatmentof childcare. It looks at the history of legisla-tive and litigative struggles, the dynamicsof courtroom discourse, and the influenceof broad social debates about children andthe public/private divide. It reveals howfrequently the rhetoric of choice, responsibil-ity, and selfishness is invoked in responseto women?s attempts to place issues ofchildcare on the public agenda.Taxing Choices will interest all those who seekto use the law as a tool of social justice butare troubled by the perils posed by competinginterests and conflicts involving race, class,gender, and ability.NEW IN PAPERBACKEdited by John McLaren, Robert Menzies,and Dorothy E.

McIlwraith, spent elevenmonths in the isolated community of BellaCoola, British Columbia, living among thepeople of the Nuxalk First Nation. During histime there, McIlwraith gained intimate knowl-edge of the Nuxalk culture and their struggle tosurvive in the face of massive depopulation,loss of traditional lands, and the efforts of theCanadian government to ban the potlatch.McIlwraith?s resulting ethnography, The BellaCoola Indians (1948), is widely considered tobe the finest study ever published about aNorthwest Coast First Nation.This volume is a rich complement toMcIlwraith?s classic work, incorporating hisletters from the field as well as rare, previouslyunpublished essays on the Nuxalk. Vivid andlively, the letters show the human side of theanthropologist, and shed invaluable light onthe famous Northwest winter ceremonials andpotlatch ? events into which McIlwraith, as oneof the few white men privileged to participateas a dancer and partner, had unique insight.Extensive editorial annotations and strikingphotographs make this book a pleasurableread that will appeal to anthropologists andhistorians, as well as those with interests inNorthwest cultures and the history of anthro-pology in Canada.John Barker is a member of the Department ofAnthropology and Sociology at the University ofBritish Columbia.

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 whilethe accomplishments of Canadian universi-ties were remarkable 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.Historians of education, cultural historians,university administrators, governmentpolicymakers, and those with a stake inpublic education will welcome this importantvolume by one of Canada?s most respecteduniversity administrators and educators.In recent years job training programs havesuffered severe funding cuts, and the focusof training programs has shifted to meet thedirectives of funders rather than the needsof the community. How do these changes tojob training affect disadvantaged workersand the unemployed?This insightful and comprehensive discussionof job education in Canada pools findingsfrom a five-year collaborative study oftraining programs. Good training programs,argue Cohen and her contributors, areessential for providing chronically disadvan-taged people with the tools needed toacquire more secure, better-paying jobs. Inthe ongoing shift toward a neo-liberaleconomic model, government policies haveengendered a growing reliance on privateand market-based training schemes. Thesenew training policies have undermined equity.In an attempt to redress social inequities inthe workplace, the authors examine variouskinds of training programs and recommendspecific policy initiatives to improve accessto these programs.
