Local Knowledge, Colonial Encounters, and Social Imagination Julie Cruikshank The glaciers creep Like snakes that watch their prey, from their far fountains, Slow rolling on. -- Percy Shelley, “Mont Blanc,” 1816 Glaciers in America’s far northwest figure prominently in indigenous oral traditions, early travelers’ journals, and the work of geophysical scientists. By following such stories across three centuries, this book explores local knowledge, colonial encounters, and environmental change. Do Glaciers Listen? examines conflicting depictions of glaciers to show how natural and social histories are entangled. During late stages of the Little Ice Age, significant geophysical changes coincided with dramatic social upheaval in the Saint Elias Mountains. European visitors brought conceptions of Nature as sublime, as spiritual, or as a resource for human progress. They saw glaciers as inanimate, subject to empirical investigation and measurement. Aboriginal responses were strikingly different. From their perspectives, glaciers were sentient, animate, and quick to respond to human behaviour. In each case, experiences and ideas surrounding glaciers were incorporated into interpretations of social relations. Focusing on these contrasting views, Julie Cruikshank demonstrates how local knowledge is produced, rather than “discovered,” through such encounters, and how oral histories conjoin social and biophysical processes. She traces how divergent views continue to weave through contemporary debates about protected areas, parks and the new World Heritage site that encompasses the area where Alaska, British Columbia, and the Yukon Territory now meet. Students and scholars of Native studies and anthropology as well as readers interested in northern studies and colonial encounters will find Do Glaciers Listen? a fascinating read and a rich addition to circumpolar literature. Julie Cruikshank is Professor Emerita in the Department of Anthropology and Sociology at the University of British Columbia. She is the author of Life Lived Like a Story (winner of the Canadian Historical Association’s 1991 Macdonald Prize), Reading Voices, and The Social Life of Stories. “Do Glaciers Listen? is an exploration of nature and culture in encounter that builds upon Julie Cruikshank’s deep and unrivalled knowledge of indigenous tradition. It focuses on an area that is, by most people’s reckoning, ‘off the beaten track’ and probably thus, by extension, unpropitious space for such an inquiry. But this is its triumph. It brings liminal space to the very centre of several important concerns of contemporary scholarship.” – Graeme Wynn, Department of Geography, University of British Columbia.

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 help to explain or negotiate conflict in the contexts of colonialism, war, immigration, labour strife, natural disaster, treaty making, and globalization. As such, 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 becom- ing an international ski resort. The legend revolves around a curse cast on the valley by indigenous people in the nineteenth cen- tury. Successive interpretations of the story reveal a complicated landscape of memory and silence, mapping official and contested histories, social and scientific theories, as well as the edicts of political discourse. Curs- ing becomes a metaphor for the discursive power that resonates in political, popular, and cultural contexts, transmitting ideas of differ- ence 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.

In Negotiated Memory, Julie Rak examines the ways in which autobio- graphical strategies have been employed by the Doukhobors themselves in order to retell and reclaim their own history. Drawing from oral interviews, court docu- ments, government reports, prison diaries, and media accounts, Rak demonstrates how the Doukhobors employed both “classic” and alternative forms of autobiography to com- municate their views about communal living, vegetarianism, activism, and spiritual life, as well as to pass on traditions to successive generations. More than a historical work, this book brings together recent theories concerning subjectivity, autobiography, and identity, and shows how Doukhobor autobio- graphical discourse forms a series of ongo- ing negotiations for identity and collective survival that are sometimes successful and sometimes not. An innovative study, Negotiated Memory will appeal to those interested in autobiography studies as well as to historians, literary crit- ics, and students and scholars of Canadian cultural studies.

C A Paddling to Where I Stand Agnes Alfred, Qwiqwasutinuxw Noblewoman Edited by Martine J. 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 narratives from myths, chants, historical accounts, and personal reminis- cences. 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 tradition, the foundations and the enduring pulse of her living culture. She contributes to our understanding of several traditional prac- tices, including pre-arranged 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 providing a role model for those who came after her. Offering stories that are both humorous and moving, Paddling to Where I Stand is an original and fascinating read. NATIVE STUDIES WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/NATIVESTUDIES NOW IN PAPERBACK Martine J.

Richard Atleo) Western philosophy has long held scientific rationalism in a place of honour. Reason, that particularly exalted human quality, has become steadily distanced from the meta- physical aspects of existence, such as spirit, faith, and intuition. In Tsawalk, hereditary chief Umeek introduces us to an alternative, indigenous worldview -- an ontology drawn from Nuu-chah-nulth origin stories. Umeek develops a theory of “Tsawalk,” mean- ing  “one,” which views the nature of existence as an integrated and orderly whole, and thereby recognizes the intrinsic relationship between the physical and spiritual realms. By retelling and analyzing the origin stories of Son of Raven and Son of Mucus, Umeek demonstrates how Tsawalk provides a viable theoretical alternative that both complements and expands the view of reality presented by Western science. Tsawalk, he argues, allows both Western and indigenous views to be combined in order to advance our understanding of the universe. In addition, he shows how various fundamental aspects of Nuu-chah-nulth society are based on Tsawalk, and what implications it has today for both Native and non-Native peoples. A valuable contribution to Native studies, anthropology, and philosophy, Tsawalk offers a revitalizing and thoughtful complement to Western scientific worldviews. NOW IN PAPERBACK E.

Most of us have never been there, yet images of the region are within easy reach: in magazine racks, on coffee tables, and on television, computer, and movie screens. Here, 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 lectures. Through the work of federal govern- ment special investigator Major Lachlin T. Burwash, first Bishop of the Arctic Archibald Lang Fleming, The Beaver magazine editor and publicity expert Douglas MacKay, and photographer-filmmaker-author Richard Finnie, 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 photographic ways of seeing and the expan- sion of colonial power, and raises questions about the role of visual representation in interpreting the past. Illustrated with over eighty-five images from photographs and films of the period, this book will appeal to those interested in Canadian and cultural history, Northern and Aboriginal studies, film and com- munication, anthropology, and visual culture.

In this pioneering book, Bonita Lawrence reveals the ways in which mixed-blood urban Natives understand their identities and struggle to survive in a world that, more often than not, fails to recognize them. In “Real” Indians and Others Lawrence draws on the first-person accounts of thirty Toronto residents of Native heritage, as well as archi- val materials, sociological research, and her own urban Native heritage and experiences. She sheds light on the Canadian government’s efforts to define Native identity through the years by means of the Indian Act and shows how policies such as residential schooling, loss of official Indian status, and adoption have affected Native identity. Lawrence looks at how Natives with “Indian status” react and respond to “nonstatus” Natives and how fed- erally recognized Native peoples attempt to impose an identity on urban Natives. Drawing on her interviews with urban Natives, she describes the devastating loss of community that has resulted from identity legislation and how urban Native peoples have wrestled with their past and current identities. Lawrence also addresses the future and explores the forms of nation building that can reconcile the differences in experiences and distinct agendas of urban and reserve-based Native communities.

C A NATIVE STUDIES WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/NATIVESTUDIES First Nations Sacred Sites in Canada’s Courts Michael Lee Ross “I know of no other book that even attempts to do what Michael Ross’s very careful and intelligent le- gal analysis accomplishes here. Ross’s arguments are logically presented and clear, and he makes an important contribution to the literature.” – Peter Russell, Professor Emeritus in Political Science, University of Toronto The sacred sites of indigenous peoples are under increasing threat worldwide. The threat’s origin is traceable to state appropriation of control over their ancestral territories; its increase is fueled by insatiable demands on lands, waters, and natural resources. Because their sacred sites spiritu- ally anchor their relationship with their lands, and because their relationship with their lands is at the core of their identities, threats to their sacred sites are effectively threats to indigenous peoples themselves. In recent decades, First Nations peoples of Canada, like other indigenous peoples, have faced hard choices. Sometimes, they have foregone public defence of their threatened sacred sites in order to avoid compounding disrespect and to grieve in private over the desecration and even destruction. Other times, they have mounted public protests – ranging from public information campaigns to on-the-ground resistance, the latter having oc- curred famously at Oka, Ipperwash, and Gustafsen Lake. Of late, they have also taken their fight to the courts. First Nations Sacred Sites in Canada’s Courts is the first work to examine how Canada’s courts have responded. Informed by elements of a general theory of sacred sites and supported by a thor- ough analysis of nearly a dozen cases, the book demonstrates not merely that the courts have failed but also why they have failed to treat First Nations sacred sites fairly. The book does not, however, end on a wholly critical note. It goes on to suggest practical ways in which courts can improve on their treatment of First Nations sacred sites and, finally, to reflect that Canada too has something profound at stake in the struggle of First Nations peoples for their sacred sites. Although intended for anthropologists, lawyers, judges, politicians, and scholars (particularly those in anthropology, law, native studies, politics, and religious studies), First Nations Sacred Sites in Canada’s Courts may be read with profit by anyone interested in the evolving relationship between indigenous peoples and the modern state.

LAW AND SOCIETY SERIES MARCH 2005 256 pages, est., 6 x 9” hc $85.00 ISBN 0-7748-1129-3 Our Box Was Full An Ethnography for the Delgamuukw Plaintiffs Richard Daly For the Gitksan and Witsuwit’en of northwest Brit- ish Columbia, the land is invested with meaning that goes beyond simple notions of property or sustenance. Considered both a food box and a storage box of history and wealth, the land plays a central role in their culture, survival, history, and identity. In Our Box Was Full, Richard Daly explores the centrality of this notion in the determination of Aboriginal rights with particular reference to the landmark Delgamuukw case that occupied the British Columbia courts from 1987 to 1997. Called as an expert witness for the Aboriginal plaintiffs, Daly, an anthropologist, was charged with helping the Gitksan and Witsutwit’en to “prove they existed” and to make the case for Aboriginal self-governance. In order to do this, Daly spent several years documenting their institutions, system of production and exchange, dispute settlement, and proprietorship before Pax Britan- nica and colonization. His conclusions were that the plaintiffs continue to live out their rich and complex heritage today albeit under very different conditions from those of either the pre-contact or fur trade eras. Our Box Was Full provides fascinating insight into the Delgamuukw case and sheds much-needed light on the role of anthropology in Aboriginal rights litigation. A rich, compassionate, and original ethnographic study, the book situates the plaintiff peoples within the field of forager studies and emphasizes the kinship and gift exchange features that pervade these societies even today. Richard Daly is an independent anthropologist who now lives in Norway.

In all, Between Justice and Certainty offers a refreshing analysis of a complex situation.” – Peter Kulchyski, Head of Native Studies, University of Manitoba The British Columbia Treaty Process was established in 1992 with the aim of resolving the outstanding land claims of First Nations peoples in British Columbia. Since that time, two discourses have been prominent within the treaty negotiations taking place between First Nations and the governments of Canada and British Columbia. The first, that of justice, asks how we can remedy the past injustices that were imposed on BC’s First Nations through the removal of their lands and forced assimilation. The second, that of cer- tainty, asks whether this historical repair can occur in a manner that provides a better future for all British Columbians. In Between Justice and Certainty, Andrew Woolford examines the interplay between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal visions of justice and certainty in the first decade of the BC Treaty Process and poses the question: Is there a space between justice and certainty in which modern treaties can be made? Through interviews, field research, and an overview of archival and modern treaty documents, he argues that the goal of certainty is overriding the de- mand for justice in the treaty process, and suggests that greater attention to justice is necessary if we are to initiate a process of reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples in BC. Between Justice and Certainty is recommended reading for sociologists, anthropologists, historians, political scientists, and legal scholars interested in how we deal with past injustices, as well as for anyone wishing to learn more about the BC Treaty Process.

C A Intercultural Dispute Resolution in Aboriginal Contexts Edited by Catherine Bell and David Kahane In the last twenty years, there has been a growing interest in alternative dispute resolution (ADR), as scholars and practition- ers seek more effective, context-sensitive approaches to conflict. Where formerly conflict was tackled and “resolved” in formal legal settings and with an adversarial spirit, more conciliatory approaches -- negotiation, mediation, problem-solving, and arbitration – are now gaining favour. These new methods are proving especially appropriate in inter- cultural contexts, particularly for Aboriginal land claims, self-government, and community- based disputes. The essays collected here by Catherine Bell and David Kahane provide a balanced view of ADR, exploring its opportunities and effectiveness alongside its challenges and limits. The essays are international in scope, with examples of efforts at dispute resolu- tion involving Inuit and Arctic peoples, Dene, Gitxsan and Wet’suwet’en, Tsuu T’ina, Cree, Metis, Navajo, Maori, Aboriginal Australians, and Torres Strait Islanders. With contributions from Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal theorists and practitioners, Intercul- tural Dispute Resolution in Aboriginal Contexts presents an array of insightful perspectives. This book will appeal to students and scholars of Aboriginal law and alternative dispute reso- lution; legal and political theorists; dispute resolution practitioners; and anyone involved in struggles around land claims, treaty, and self-government agreements in Canada or abroad.

Emotionally seductive, its rhetoric appeals to a desire for a “right-relation” among individuals and communities, and offers us a vision of justice that allows for the mutual healing of victim and offender, and with it, a sense of communal repair. In Compulsory Compassion, Annalise Acorn, a one-time advocate for restorative justice, deconstructs the rhetoric of the restorative movement. Drawing from diverse legal, literary, philosophical, and autobiographical sources, she questions the fundamental as- sumptions behind that rhetoric: that we can trust wrongdoers’ performances of contrition; that healing lies in a respectful, face-to-face encounter between victim and offender; and that the restorative idea of right-relation holds the key to a reconciliation of justice and ac- countability with love and compassion.

His analysis of the rise of judicial power, the disarray of electoral politics, ‘the market abounding,’ the place of First Nations, our treatment of children, and prospects for cyber-citizenship is ambitious, insightful, provocative, and timely.” – Harry W. Arthurs, University Professor of Law and Political Science, York University Good Government? Good Citizens? explores the evolving concept of the citizen in Canada at the beginning of this century. Three forces are at work in reconstituting the citizen in this society: courts, politics, and markets. Many see these forces as intersecting and colliding in ways that are fundamentally reshaping the relationship of individuals to the state and to each other. How has Canadian society actually been transformed? Is the state truly in retreat? Do individuals, in fact, have a fundamentally altered sense of their relationship to government and to each other? Have courts and markets supplanted representative politics regarding the expression of basic values? Must judicialized protection of human rights and minority interests necessar- ily mean a diminished concern for the common good on the part of repre- sentative politics? To what extent should markets and representative politics maintain a role in the protection of human rights and minority interests? Will representative politics ever hold the public trust again? Good Government? Good Citizens? responds to these questions. It does so by examining the altered roles of courts, politics, and markets over the last two decades. It then examines a number of areas to gauge the extent of the evidence regarding transformations that have occurred because of these changing roles. There are chapters on the First Peoples, cyberspace, education, and on an ageing Canada. The book concludes with reflections on the “good citizen” at the dawning of the new century. Of particular interest to professors and students of law and political science, Good Government? Good Citizens? will appeal to anyone interested in the changing face of Canada and its citizens. W.A.

Flemming Canada’s Supreme Court decides cases with far-reaching effects on Canadian politics and public policies. When the Supreme Court sets cases on its agenda, it exercises nearly un- restrained discretion and considerable public authority. But how does the Court choose these cases in the first place? Tournament of Appeals investigates the leave to appeal process in Canada and explores how and why certain cases “win” a place on the Court’s agenda and others do not. Draw- ing from systematically collected information on the process, applications, and lawyers, Flemming offers both a qualitative and quan- titative explanation of how Canada’s justices grant judicial review. The first of its kind, this innovative study will draw the attention of lawyers, academics, and students in North America as well as in the Commonwealth or Europe, where the appeals process in the high courts is similar to that of Canada.

In the first book published on the subject, Marc Ribeiro offers a balanced analysis of this doctrine and its application in the context of the Canadian Constitution. Taking as its starting point a cogent analysis of the fundamental concepts of “legality” and the “rule of law,” Limiting Arbitrary Power undertakes a specific study of the contents of the vagueness doctrine. Ribeiro presents an in-depth exploration of the courts’ cur- rent approach to it and suggests how this approach may be refined in the future. He examines in detail the possible situations in which vagueness may become applicable under the Charter and proposes techniques for legislative drafting in which certainty could be enhanced without compromising the flex- ibility required in law.

Esau As Christian pacifists with a credo of nonresis- tance, the Hutterites live communally, sharing all wealth and material goods. So when top members of certain colonies request court adjudication enforced by state violence to settle an “inside” issue, the fundamental values of their belief system are called into question. The Courts and the Colonies offers a detailed account of the pro- tracted dispute that arose in a Manitoba colony when leaders turned to the secular legal system after failing to resolve an internal conflict. In an unprecedented move, the leaders went to court to force the departure of a group that had been excommunicated but would not leave. Could the colony expect secular law to enforce religious practices? Should the laws of the state regulate decisions about church membership, discipline, and expulsions from the colony? How should it deal with issues of shunning, legitimacy of leadership, and communal property rights? In the wake of a major schism within the Schmiedeleut, more than a dozen additional lawsuits dealing with these is- sues were launched. Alvin Esau examines the history of Hutterite litiga- tion and how the roots of the schism related to the controversy. At stake is the nature of religious freedom in Canada and the extent to which our pluralistic society is prepared to accommodate groups with illiberal legal systems that may not cohere with that of the external society.

Smith, Professor of Government and International Studies, University of South Carolina, author of Reforming the Russian Legal System “The scholarship is exemplary… The book offers new and important insights and will be of interest to students of Russian studies as well as special- ists in comparative law and politics. All readers will come away from this work with a much fuller understanding of the depth of change in the legal and social fabric of Russia in the 1990s.” – Eugene Huskey; William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Political Science and Russian Studies, Stetson University; author of Russian Lawyers and the So- viet State and Presidential Power in Russia Lawyers often play pivotal roles in building democ- racies. Pamela Jordan’s engaging study of the Russian bar (advokatura) provides a richly textured portrait of how, after the USSR’s collapse, practis- ing lawyers called advocates began to assume new, self-defined roles as contributors to legal reform and defenders of rights in Russia. Using the historical institutionalism approach as her analytical framework and drawing from compara- tive literature on legal professions, Jordan argues that the post-Soviet advokatura as an institution gained more, although not complete, autonomy from the state as it struggled to redefine itself as a profession. Jordan suggests that advocates’ work is supporting the growth of civil society and the strengthening of human rights in Russia. Defending Rights in Russia concludes that, in a measured way advocates redistributed social and political power, by means of their role as interme- diary actors between state and societal forces. However, she also warns that such gains could be reversed if the Putin regime continues to flout due process rights. This multidisciplinary work will be of interest to specialists on Russia, post-com- munism, human rights, the history of professions and institutions, and legal studies. Pamela A.

C A LAW WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/LAW Humanitarianism, Identity, and Nation Migration Laws of Australia and Canada Catherine Dauvergne “Catherine Dauvergne’s work is highly original. Her challenging, interpretive approach provides a welcome counterbalance to the unidimensional economic analysis that has shaped the majority of recently published books on immigration. Of particular interest to Canadians and Australians, her ideas and insights have international relevance.” – Donald Galloway, Professor of Law, University of Victoria Refugees are on the move around the globe. Prosperous nations are rapidly adjusting their laws to crack down on the so called “undeserving.” Aus- tralia and Canada have each sought international reputations as humanitarian do-gooders, especially in the area of refugee admissions. In Humanitarianism, Identity, and Nation, Catherine Dauvergne traces the connections between the nation-building tradition of immigration and the challenge of admitting people who do not bring some obvious value to the nation. She argues that in the absence of the justice standard for admitting outsiders, liberal nations instead share a humanitarian consensus about letting in needy outsiders. This consensus constrains and shapes migration law and policy. In a detailed consideration of how refugees and others in need are admitted to Australia and Canada, she links humanitarianism and national identity to explain the current state of the law. If the problems of immigration policy were all about economics, future directions would be easy to map. If rights could trump sovereignty, refugee admission would be straightforward. But migration politics has never been simple. Humanitarianism, Identity, and Nation is a welcome antidote to eco- nomic critiques of immigration, and a thoughtful contribution to rights talk. The book will be of interest to lawyers, legal decision- makers, socio-legal scholars, law students, and anyone interested in a central aspect of Canadian public law and policy. It is a must-read for everyone interested in transforming migration laws to meet the needs of the twenty-first century.

Buck, and Nancy E. Wright In the late eighteenth century, the English jurist William Blackstone famously described property as “that sole and despotic dominion.” Over time, this phrase has assumed various and more ambiguous meanings. This ambiguity of “property,” and the tensions evident in property disputes in colonial settings form the central theme of this book. Despotic Dominion examines the evolution of prop- erty law in several former British colonies within the broader political, economic, social, and intel- lectual cultures of those societies. It draws from litigation and political action related to Aboriginal title and other disputes over property rights in settled colonies of the Empire. The contributors consider how the land was perceived by indigenous peoples, colonial officials, and settlers; how these groups viewed their relationship with the land; and how local interests conflicted with one another and with centralizing notions of law and justice. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the important issue of property rights, which continues to animate the body politic of Australia and Canada in particular. It will be of interest to students and scholars of colonial history, property theory, indigenous studies, and law, as well as to judges, lawyers, and the general reader.

Nicol and Ian Townsend-Gault “The book will stand on its own, without rivals, in the way it tackles the theme.” – Julian V. Minghi, Distinguished Professor Emeri- tus, University of South Carolina, and co-editor of The Geography of Border Landscapes The era of globalization has produced significant changes in the borderland issues of trade, secu- rity, economics, health, and even the environment. While borders may seem more permeable than they once were, can it really be said that we live in a “borderless world”? Holding the Line considers the changing roles of modern borders, contending that they not only remain relevant but also have become increasingly important as a site for negoti- ating the competing demands of globalization and national sovereignty. Exploring contemporary borders from a broad range of perspectives -- legal, environmental, sociological, economic, geopolitical, and his- torical -- and using examples from around the world, the contributors use a holistic approach to understand the impact of boundaries on both society and space. They demonstrate that any at- tempt to create a methodological and conceptual framework for the understanding of boundaries must be concerned with the process of bounding, rather than simply the physical lines of separation. Borders, they conclude, are as much metaphors as they are realities. Heather N. Nicol is in the Geosciences Depart- ment at the State University of West Georgia.

As such, they are constitutive practices that work to “make-up” and regulate national borders, citizens, and populations. In addition, they play a key role in the reconfiguration of citizenship and sovereignties in the global context. Despite popular and political exclamations, it is not a brand new world. The denigration of refugee claimants, heightened and intersecting anxieties about crime, security, and fraud, and efforts to fortify the border against risky outsiders have been prominent fea- tures of Canadian immigration penality since well before September 11th, 2001. Securing Borders is a close study of the discursive formations, transformations, and technologies of power that have surrounded the laws, policies, and practices of detention and deportation in Canada since the Second World War. During this period, crime categories have proliferated and merged with a reconfigured and expanded understanding of national security. Securing Borders traces the con- nections between what might appear to be rather disparate concerns – detention and deportation, criminal justice, welfare, refugees, law, discretion, security, and risk – and considers these in relation to more general transitions from welfare to neolib- eral modes of rule. Securing Borders explores, in the context of immigration penality, a number of themes which cross traditional disciplinary boundaries, including: administrative discretion, law, and liberalism; tran- sitions from welfare to neoliberal regimes of rule; intersections of sovereign and governmental, risk- based, governing strategies; “governing through crime” as central to contemporary public policy; and the border as a heterogeneous and artful ac- complishment that constitutes citizens and national identities, and regulates populations. This work is thus a rich interdisciplinary study which promises to be of interest to scholars in a range of disciplines including criminology, socio-legal studies, law, history, sociology, political science, international relations, and public administration. It will also be of interest to non-governmental advocates as well as to government representatives who work in the areas of immigration, refugee determination, and related fields.

C A LAW WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/LAW Law and Risk Edited by the Law Commission of Canada The study and practice of risk analysis, risk man- agement, and the communication of risk has been the subject of heated debates. This is no less so when law is added to the mix. Despite the law’s constant search for certainty, the concept of risk itself is inherently uncertain. From the precautionary principle to the role of research ethics boards, risk remains a value-laden term, difficult to define and even more difficult to address. This collection from the Law Commission of Canada looks at law and risk in a variety of contexts and provides insight into how courts use and interpret risk, how the law allocates risk, and the regulation of risky activities. To demonstrate the linkages between law and risk, the essays tackle some difficult topics, including dangerous offenders, sex offender notification, drug courts, genetic research, pesticide use, child pornography, and tobacco advertising. These important contributions to whether the law adequately and appropriately responds to risk will be of interest to students and scholars of law and the social sciences, as well as to law practitioners and lawmakers.

Defining Criminal Conduct in Contemporary Society Edited by the Law Commission of Canada Most of us are very much aware of the behaviours which, by law, constitute crime. Rarely, however, do we stop to consider why certain activities and behaviours are deemed criminal and others are not. What Is a Crime? examines how we define criminal conduct in contemporary society, and how we respond to it once it has been identified. Drawing from diverse scholarly traditions – includ- ing law, sociology, criminology, and socio-legal studies – these essays look at the processes of defining crime, and consider the varied and complex implications of decisions to criminalize certain behaviour. From the perspective of various case studies, the contributors reflect on the social processes that inform definitions of crime, criminal law, and its enforcement, while illuminating the subjective nature of crime and questioning the role of law in dealing with complex social issues. What Is a Crime? will be of interest to readers with an interest in the governance of crime and its control in contemporary society. Students and scholars of law, sociology, political science, philosophy, and criminology will find this book invaluable in furthering their understanding of the processes of defining and responding to crime and criminal behaviour. It will also appeal to policy mak- ers, criminal justice practitioners, and anyone with a stake in our current approaches to crime.

Kendall The 2000 case of Little Sisters Book and Art Emporium v. Customs Canada provided Canada’s highest court with its first oppor- tunity to consider whether the analysis set out in R. v. Butler -- in which the Supreme Court identified pornography as an issue of sex discrimination -- applies to pornography intended for a lesbian or gay male audience. The Court held that it did, finding that, like heterosexual pornography, same-sex pornog- raphy also violates the sex equality interests of all Canadians. Christopher Kendall supports this finding, arguing that gay male pornography reinforces those social attitudes that create systemic inequality on the basis of sex and sexual ori- entation by sexually conditioning gay men to those attitudes and practices. He rejects the equality claims of gay male pro-pornography advocates and contends that, as a result of litigation efforts like those brought by lesbian and gay activists in the Little Sisters case, the notion of empowerment and the rejection of those values that daily result in all that is anti-gay have been replaced with a misguided community ethic and identity politic that encourages inequality. Gay Male Pornography will foster a much broader debate about gay male identity and those legal strategies aimed at promoting it. No one has ever tackled this issue from this particular persective and the arguments presented are both compelling and long overdue.

Flemming teach- es in the Department of Political Science at Texas A&M University, and is the author of Tournament of Appeals: Granting Judicial Review in Canada Feminist Activism in the Supreme Court Legal Mobilization and the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund Christopher P. Manfredi Since 1980, the Canadian women’s move- ment has been an active participant in con- stitutional politics and Charter litigation. This book, through its focus on the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF), presents a compelling examination of how Canadian feminists became key actors in developing the constitutional doctrine of equality, and how they mobilized that doctrine to support the movement’s policy agenda. The case of LEAF, an organization that had as its goal the use of Charter litigation to influ- ence legal rules and public policy, provides rich ground for Christopher Manfredi’s keen analysis of legal mobilization. In a multitude of areas such as abortion, pornography, sexual assault, family law, and gay and les- bian rights, LEAF has intervened before the Supreme Court to bring its understanding of equality to bear on legal policy development. This study offers a deft examination of LEAF’s arguments and seeks to understand how they affected the Court’s consideration of the issues. Perhaps most important, it also contemplates the long-term effects of the mobilization, and considers the social impact of the legal doctrine that has emerged from LEAF cases. A major contribution to law and society stud- ies, Feminist Activism in the Supreme Court is unparalleled in its analysis of legal mobiliza- tion as an effective strategy for social move- ments. It will be widely read and welcomed by legal scholars, political scientists, lawyers, feminists, and activists.

The concepts of “capacity” and “capacity-building” are used to structure this exploration. Simply put, capacity refers to those qualities or characteristics that enable people to do something. The book is based on the experiences of the Building Health Promotion Capacity Project (1998–2003),  a continuing education and applied research initiative affiliated with the Saskatchewan Heart Health Program. This project was designed to study the process of capacity development through taking action to enhance the health promotion ca- pacity of practitioners and regional health districts in Saskatchewan. For health promotion practitioners, this book provides a coherent framework for effective profes- sional practice in the field. Leaders in health sector organizations will acquire a greater understanding of how to support health promotion practice and of how to recruit and develop individual practitioners with a high level of capacity. Policy makers will learn characteristics of environments that are supportive of the health promotion capacity of individuals and organizations. Scholars will acquire an understand- ing of the nature of health promotion capacity and a methodology for studying such capacity.

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 unproductive. This regressive movement culminated in a major policy shift in the 1990s. The number of unemployed with access to benefits was halved during that time. From UI to EI examines Canada’s unemployment insurance system and the rights it grants to the unemployed. The development of the system, its legislation, and related jurisprudence are viewed through a historical perspective that accounts for the social, political, and economic context. This book examines the system with emphasis upon its recent transformations, and will interest profes- sors and students of law, political science, and social work, and anyone concerned about the right of the unemployed to adequate protection.

By examining the historical conditions for the emergence of new laws governing infanticide, Kirsten Kramar brings origi- nal analytical insights to the infanticide debate. – Sylvie Frigon, Professor of Criminology, University of Ottawa This book traces twentieth-century Canadian crimi- nal justice responses to women who kill their newly born babies. Initially, juries were reluctant to convict these women of murder since it carried the death penalty. The current “infanticide” law was adopted in 1948 to impose uniformity on legal practice and to ensure a homicide conviction. Even then, pros- ecutors faced considerable difficulties, but now, amidst media pressure, and with public attitudes possibly hardening, there are calls for the repeal of the infanticide law and the adoption of a draconian framework to deal with these cases. Kirsten Kramar provides an interdisciplinary feminist approach to the study of infanticide law, examining and linking historical, sociological, and legal scholarship. She examines in detail the legislative history and infanticide case law, as well as the range of relevant medical discourses from the past 100 years. By doing this, she provides a more nuanced approach to the debates around the broader issues of the medicalization of women’s deviance – one that reveals some of the political dangers inherent in hasty critiques of infanticide law, and shows the value of careful interdisciplinary analysis for studies in the history of law and socio- legal relations Drawing on a wide range of original data sources (provincial and federal indictment case files, coroner’s records, reported legal cases, Hansard Parliamentary Debates, official crime statistics, media reports, and expert medical texts), Kramar presents a detailed picture of the developments, revealing the often ironic consequences of attempts to rationalize this area of law. An established femi- nist critique of “infanticide” as an inappropriately medical concept is shown to have been largely unhelpful, misconstruing the phenomenon’s history and significance, and lending support to calls for a “get tough” approach Unwilling Mothers, Unwanted Babies makes an important contribution to the international literature on maternal neonaticide as well as the medicaliza- tion of deviance, and will be of interest to those working in law, sociology, criminology, women’s studies, and gender history.

The discovery snowballed into a fourteen-year-battle with the Ontario legal establishment, as Mrs. Campbell attempted to prove that her uncle, a prominent member of Ontario’s legal circle, had stolen funds from her mother’s estate. In 1930, she argued her case before the Law Lords of the Privy Council in London. A non-lawyer and Canadian, with no formal education, Campbell was the first woman to ever appear before them.

Has cabinet really become just a fo- cus group for the Prime Minister? Do political staff and central agency bureaucrats enhance or diminish democracy? Do private members have any say in the cabinet process? In an accessible, thorough, and balanced fash- ion, this volume of the Canadian Democratic Audit examines the concentration of power in cabinet and the prime minister’s office. Taking the view that to explain our Westminster- style government as a benign dictatorship is an oversimplification, Cabinets and First Ministers provides an honest assessment of current conditions. With characteristic eloquence, White renders a clear account of the development, structure, and operation of cabinet, and the role of the first ministers at the federal, provincial, and territorial levels. He further discusses how the processes that support cabinet are affected by the considerable power of the first minister and looks at the ways in which they allow for the involvement of other elected members and the public. Keeping in mind the core concerns of the Ca- nadian Democratic Audit, White also examines first ministers and cabinets with an eye to accountability and transparency – concepts which are key in effective democracy, and which, in the wake of the so-called “sponsor- ship scandal,” have been much in the public eye. His cogent analysis does much to explain this much-scrutinized aspect of our democ- racy, and points the way to realistic proposals for its improvement.

Today, voter turnout levels are at historic lows, while Internet usage is at historic highs. Can we still make the claim, then, that new informa- tion and communication technologies (ICTs) enhance democratic life in Canada? In fact, what effect is the increasing mediation of political communication by ICTs having on the practice of Canadian politics?  How have such digital technologies affected the distribution of power in Canadian society? In Communication Technology, Darin Barney investigates the links between ICTs and our democratic processes. Framing his discus- sion around the Canadian Democratic Audit’s central concerns of inclusiveness, public participation, and responsiveness, Barney argues that the potential of ICTs to contribute to a more democratic political system will remain largely untapped unless the more conventional dimensions of Canadian politics, the economy, and modes of governance are re-oriented. A highly original volume of the Canadian Democratic Audit, Communication Technol- ogy poses some provocative questions about the state of Canadian democracy and the place of ICTs in shaping and improving it. Students of political science and media studies, as well as those with an interest in understanding the activist potential of ICTs will find this book particularly compelling.

Courtney “As the first volume in the Canadian Democratic Audit series, Elections marks a stunning debut.” – Rob Thomas, The Peer Review Open and competitive elections governed by widely accepted rules and procedures are essen- tial to the legitimacy of any political system. Elec- tions assesses the history and development of five building blocks of the Canadian electoral regime: the franchise, electoral districts, voter registration, election machinery, and plurality voting. Arguing that on balance the Canadian electoral system is truly democratic, John Courtney dem- onstrates its vast improvements over the years. The right to vote is now generously interpreted. The process of redrawing electoral districts is no longer in the hands of elected officials. Voter regis- tration lists include all but a small share of eligible voters. And those who manage elections on behalf of all citizens are honest and trustworthy officials. Using the recent push for reform of the plurality vote system as one example, Courtney also exam- ines why certain electoral institutions have been amenable to change and others have not. In a democracy it is important for citizens to understand the most essential parts of their own electoral system. Elections is an ideal primer for undergraduate students, journalists, politicians, and citizens interested in the current state of Canadian democracy.

Members of such groups, however, are themselves often deeply involved in traditional political circles and party politics. Who partici- pates in advocacy groups? Which kinds of groups dominate the political agenda? What influence does lobbying have on government? How can advocacy groups be made a more vibrant and accountable part of the political landscape in Canada? To answer these questions, Lisa Young and Joanna Everitt examine the ways in which advocacy groups contribute to or detract from Canadian democracy. They argue that group activity is an important form of political participation, often playing a crucial compensatory role for interests unrepresented or underrepresented in traditional political institu- tions. They also find, however, that groups with greater financial resources generally have better access to government decision makers, a trend accentuated recently by reductions in government funding. Advocacy Groups concludes with recom- mendations for best practices in internal group or- ganization and in efforts to influence public policy, as well as for ways that governments can engage in constructive consultation with groups.

Yet our system of organization and governance is also under strain. Quebec nationalism, First Nations’ claims, the regionalization of party politics, and the uneven and shifting delivery of essential services have all altered the face of federal politics. Federal- ism explains how Canada came to be a federation, what the current challenges to the federal system are, and how we could fortify it. Jennifer Smith argues that a reformed federal- ism could be part of the solution to the state of Canadian democracy. She examines the origins of Canadian federalism and its special charac- teristics, then analyzes these features against the democratic benchmarks of responsiveness, inclusiveness, and participation. Finding that Canadian federalism falls short in each area, Smith recommends changes ranging from virtual regionalism to a Council of the Federation that includes Aboriginal representatives. This revealing account of Canadian federalism is crucial reading for students and scholars of Canadian politics, politicians and policy makers, and those who care about the health of Canadian democracy. Jennifer Smith is a professor and Department Chair of Political Science at Dalhousie University.

After all, with the very rare exception of nationwide referendums, Canadians speak collectively only when voting for the people who will be represent- ing their interests in Ottawa. The same is true provincially. But how democratic are legislative assemblies in Canada? After we elect our representatives, are we comfortable that we are being properly, and democratically, represented? Apparently not. Respect for legislatures and legislators in Canada has steadily declined, and this perception is only aggravated by the current political climate. In Legislatures, David Docherty argues that the problem is not a lack of talent so much as scarce resources, cumbersome rules, and a lack of institutional freedom. Specifically, the move to a more multi-party system nationally and the in- creasing tendency to reduce the size of provincial assemblies has placed additional hurdles in the path to good governance. Docherty evaluates the Canadian legislative performance and makes recommendations for reform. David C. Docherty is a professor of political science at Wilfrid Laurier University.

In Defence of Multina- tional Citizenship responds to this challenge by making a compelling case for a new form of multinational citizenship. Such a concep- tion would provide equal recognition to the citizenship regimes of state and substate nations through a democratic argument for self-determination at the substate level, and a revised conception of state sovereignty that is divided and shared. Drawing from both existing liberal nationalist and cosmopolitan theories of citizenship and self-determination, as well as selected case studies of self-deter- mination within multinational states, Siobhán Harty and Michael Murphy have crafted an alternative multinational model of citizenship that puts forth guidelines for how often com- peting nations can coexist peacefully within the borders of a state. A sharp and insightful book, In Defence of Mul- tinational Citizenship will have much to offer nationalist and Aboriginal leaders, academics, and policy makers who study the issue of justice and equality in multinational states. Multicultural Nationalism Civilizing Difference, Constituting Community Gerald Kernerman Canadian citizenship has long been charac- terized in opposition to that of our southern neighbour as a “mosaic” instead of a “melting pot.” Acceptance of minority ethnic, racial, religious, cultural, and linguistic groups has largely been seen as key to our sense of what it means to be Canadian. Such multiplicity, however, has given rise to ongoing debates over equality, diversity, identity, and unity. This groundbreaking work interrogates and expands the accepted modes of thinking through Canadian citizenship. Drawing on feminist and postcolonial theorists, Gerald Kernerman undertakes a discourse analysis of Canadian constitutional and policy docu- ments, public speeches, and media texts. He examines and critiques what he sees as the two major competing understandings of how Canada ought to manage its diversity, both of which seek to define an overarching notion of Canadian unity: on the one hand, the argu- ment for differentiated citizenship, or “differ- ence,” and on the other, the case for universal and undifferentiated citizenship, or “equality.” Positing that each of these positions ends at the same impasse in their preoccupation with the challenges diversity represents for cohesion and stability, Kernerman proposes an alternative – a post-nationalist multicultural- ism that does not attempt to ask, or answer, the thorny “unity” question. An important contribution to the critical lit- erature on Canadian politics, citizenship, and multiculturalism, Multicultural Nationalism will appeal to political scientists and philosophers, as well as those with an interest in critical race theory, liberal multiculturalism, and law and society. “Multicultural Nationalism makes an important con- tribution to debates about national unity and diversity in Canada. Kernerman persuasively shows how the problematic logic of thinking in terms of dichotomies is not only woven into the political and public debates, but can also be detected in the ide- alized and abstract works of political philosophers such as Charles Taylor and Will Kymlicka.” – Avigail Eisenberg, co-edi- tor of Painting the Maple: Race, Gender, and the Construction of Canada Gerald Kernerman teaches in the Department of Canadian Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University.

C A Redrawing Local Government Boundaries An International Study of Politics, Procedures, and Decisions Edited by John Meligrana Local government boundaries today are under extreme pressure to undertake boundary reform. The global trend toward urbanization has brought with it economic, environmental, social, and re- gional demands that have severe implications for local governments and their territories. As a result, changing the areal jurisdiction of this most basic level of government has become a persistent and pressing challenge around the globe. This collection examines the legal and regulatory procedures involved in such municipal restructur- ing. Case studies from eight nations — the United States, Canada, Spain, Germany, Israel, Korea, China, and South Africa — investigate how and why local governments have been enlarged in scope and reduced in number within each country. Four key aspects are examined: the geography of the local government boundary problem; the proce- dures associated with boundary reform; the roles of the various institutions and actors of boundary reform; and the implications of boundary reform for urban and regional governance. The first international comparative study of local boundary reform, Redrawing Local Government Boundaries will be a valuable reference for scholars and students of political science, public administration, geography, urban studies, and urban planning.

The Politics of Canadian Communities Mary Louise McAllister Popular rhetoric suggests that the twenty-first century has ushered in an era of homogeneity. Urbanization, globalization, amalgamation, media conglomeration, and technological convergence have become familiar terms. Given the pressures of integration and assimilation, how are people within communities able to make decisions about their own environment, whether individually or collectively? To what extent can they govern themselves? Governing Ourselves? explores issues of influence and power within local institutions and decision- making processes using numerous illustrations from municipalities across Canada. It shows how communities large and small, from Toronto to Iqal- uit, have distinctive political cultures and therefore respond differently to changing global and domes- tic environments. Case studies of Prince George, Sherbrooke, Saint John, and Kitchener-Waterloo are used to illuminate historical and contemporary challenges to local governance. This stimulating book covers traditional topics such as government structures and institutions and intergovernmental relations. It also reaches more broadly into areas of inquiry relevant to geography, urban planning, environmental studies, public ad- ministration, sociology, and Canadian studies.

Cairns, one of the most influential Canadian social scientists of the contemporary period. Few scholars have helped shape so many key debates in such a wide range of topics in Canadian poli- tics, from the electoral system and federalism to constitutional and Charter politics, to questions of Aboriginal citizenship. This volume contains engaging and critical analy- ses of Cairns’ contributions by a diverse group of scholars, many of them leaders in their own fields. It includes appraisals of his role as a public intellectual, of his interpretation of Canada’s elec- toral system, of his views on federalism and on Canadian unity, of his approach to Aboriginal/non- Aboriginal relations, and of his writings on citizen- ship and diversity. It concludes with a fascinating retroactive assessment by Alan Cairns himself of his academic career. The book will prove of particular interest to stu- dents and scholars of Canadian politics, history, and society, especially those examining issues such as the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Aboriginal politics, political institutions, and politi- cal change. It should also appeal to a larger public that follows the Canadian political scene and that shares Cairns’ concerns with broad questions of citizenship, diversity, and national unity.

Representation and Democratic Theory investigates theoretical and practical aspects of innovative political representa- tion in the early twenty-first century. It reveals the complexity of contemporary political representa- tion and the importance of re-invigorating public life outside legislatures, political parties, and competitive elections. A crucial supplement to empirical studies of conventional political representation, this book offers a timely and thought-provoking contribution to contemporary democratic theory.

Rising from the ashes of BC’s once venerable Social Credit Party nine years earlier, the FCP comprised a group of pro-life, pro-family activists, and provides a prime example of a politi- cal party that was initially launched to do the work of a social movement. A unique piece of scholarship, Pro-Family Politics and Fringe Parties in Canada examines the FCP’s development from its origins as a group of alienated Socred members, through its struggles as a mar- ginal political entity, to its rebirth as the Unity Party of British Columbia. While addressing the FCP’s relationship to the larger North American pro-family movement, MacKenzie also deftly demonstrates how the party can be seen as organizationally congruent with its ideological antithesis, the Green Party. Armed with seven years of field research on the FCP, MacKenzie illustrates the obstacles that political parties that do social movement work – or party/movements – must overcome in order to achieve their goals. His conclusion is that, despite their invaluable contribution to democracy, such party/movements have a limited political life, as these challenges inevitably push them towards mainstream political institutionalization. Given this inevitable drift to institutionalization, MacKenzie suggests that in the end the only realistic goal for these parties/movements may be to merge their ideals with another larger political body. Of interest to scholars and students of political sociology and political science, as well as to Ca- nadian and political historians, Pro-Family Politics and Fringe Parties in Canada makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of the genesis, development, and impact of political party/move- ments in Canada. Moreover, it provides useful insight into the dynamics and issues that make up the current pro-family movements in Canada and the US.

C A POLITICS / GENDER STUDIES WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/POLITICS Carefair Rethinking the Responsibilities and Rights of Citizenship Paul Kershaw “Care is quickly moving to the centre of the social policy reform debates everywhere; this book will be widely cited because it anticipates a discussion that is only beginning to take shape in Canada. Kershaw’s policy recommendations aimed at re- forming gender roles as well as the role that men play in the caring needs of the family are very likely to draw critical attention from both academics and policy makers.” – Janine Brodie, Canada Research Chair in Political Economy and Social Governance “I strongly recommend this book to other research- ers, students, and policy makers. As a contribu- tion to expanding current thinking about child care policy, in an age when feminism and social policy are currently being redefined, it is timely and relevant.” – Martha Friendly, Childcare Resource and Re- search Unit, University of Toronto We often think that care is personal or intimate, whereas citizenship is political and public. In Carefair, Paul Kershaw urges readers to resist this private/public distinction by interrogating care in the context of patriarchy, racial suppression, and class prejudice. The book develops a convincing case for treating caregiving as a matter of citizen- ship that obliges and empowers all in society – men as much as women. Carefair is motivated by the rise of duty discourses across neoliberalism, the third way, communitari- anism, social conservatism, and feminisms, all of which urge renewed appreciation for obligations in civil society. Although unabashedly feminist, Kershaw argues that convergence between these discourses signals the possibility for compromise in favour of policies that will deter men from free-riding on female care. He recommends amendments to Canadian parental leave, child care, and employ- ment standards as part of a caregiving analogue to workfare – one invites us to rethink the place of care duties and entitlements in our daily lives, public policy, and perspectives on citizenship. A welcome addition to the literature, Carefair explores the place of private caregiving in social inclusion, the possibility that privileged breadwin- ners suffer some exclusion, as well as a detailed blueprint for more public investment in work-family balance. It will appeal to policy makers and activists interested in ideas, as well as to theorists with a pragmatic bent, especially students of citizenship, the welfare state, and the sociology of the family.

In Social Policy and the Ethic of Care, Hankivsky considers the implications of this ethic for a range of Canadian social policy issues. Through a series of case studies, she demonstrates the extent to which a care orientation differs from a justice orientation, and provides an alternative normative framework for interpreting, understanding, and evaluating social policy. She reveals why Canadian social policy is lacking and how it could be made more effective and robust by the inclusion of an ethic of care.

At what financial and personal cost? Based on what conditions and criteria? How do students describe and interpret their experiences? And how can institutions facilitate and constrain successful participation and completion? Student Affairs addresses these issues directly, to make clear what it is like to be a student in higher education today. Research- ers explore how and why institutional rhetoric of inclusion, engagement, gender, and access may or may not be reflected in the reality of students’ diverse experiences. The chapters move from theory to application by suggesting realistic strategies for addressing the challenges surrounding the interrelation of students and institutions. The authors also analyze issues of access and participation in programs ranging from community college developmental studies to graduate studies. Student Affairs demonstrates how much institutional change has occurred in the social organization of postsecondary educa- tion, and how much more change is required to meet the challenge of equitable access and inclusion. The results, implications, and recommendations offered in each chapter will be readily transferable throughout North America and beyond. 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 is the result of a three year Stra- tegic SSHRC grant 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 pres- ence of women in the trades may actually be declining and workfare is on the ascendance, Little’s book makes a pioneering contribution. Through the voices of participants and staff of a low-income train- ing program, she tells a fascinating story of women struggling with poverty, sexism, and racism as they attempt to gain skills, qualifications, confidence, and self-esteem.” 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.

It provides a first-rate introduction to the dilemmas and controversies surrounding Canadian natural resource and environmental policy and as such it will facilitate discussion in the classroom and encourage students to think about the issues.” – Heather A. Smith, Canadian Journal of Political Science “A useful addition ... [There is a] paucity of readable and perceptive political science in this field ... [this book] crackle[s] with interesting ideas and testable hypotheses.” – Canadian Public Policy In this new and updated edition, the authors once again examine policy making in one of the most significant areas of activity in the Canadian economy – natural resources and the environment – and discuss the evolution of resource policies from the early era of exploita- tion to the present era of resource and environ- mental management. Using an integrated politi- cal economy and policy perspective, the book provides an analytic framework from which the foundation of ideological perspectives, administrative structures, and substantive issues are explored. Departing from traditional approaches that emphasize a single discipline or perspective, it offers an interdisciplinary framework with which to think through ecologi- cal, political, economic, and social issues. It also provides a multi-stage analysis of policy making from agenda setting through the evalu- ation process. The integration of social science perspectives and the combination of theoretical and empiri- cal work make this innovative book one of the most comprehensive analyses of Canadian natural resource and environmental policy to date. Its illumination of the key elements of government policy making in this critical sec- tor and its new outline of the evolution of the Kyoto Protocol makes it a useful textbook and resource for students of environmental and public policy, policy makers, and environmental organizations.

For the latter it is essential reading.” – Ved P. Nanda, author of International Environmen- tal Law and Policy and co-author of International Environmental Law for the 21st Century Following decades of economic expansion, Asia is confronting the environmental consequences of unfettered development. This poses a challenge because of the bias of prevailing cultural systems in the region toward the goal of lifting standards of living over achieving ecological sustainability. The book addresses the relationship between Asian cultural values and international environmen- tal law. It highlights the tension between wealth maximization and environmental preservation, its evolution over time, the key issues to which it gives rise, and the policy mechanisms employed in this context, with special reference to the expanding body of international environmental law. This book contributes to the understanding of the complex questions involved and paves the way for a more enlightened policy action. The analysis and conclusions should be of consid- erable interest to scholars and students of public international law, international relations, environ- mental policy, comparative culture, economic development, and social change.

But how can an economic system that makes the world more vulnerable to environmental degradation, growing inequality and poverty, and abuse of political and economic power offer us a viable future? In Bioregionalism and Civil Society, Mike Carr outlines an alternative to the economically, environ- mentally, and politically unsustainable movement of globalization. He argues for the potential of biore- gionalism as a place-specific, social, cultural, and community economic movement within democratic civil society that can stand in opposition to the homogenizing trends of corporate globalization. He also explores the bioregional movement in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, examining its vision, values, strategies, and tools for building sustainable societies. By integrating civil society theory with social and natural ecologies, Carr offers a practical approach to creating an economically, environmentally, and culturally sustainable world. Bioregionalism and Civil Society addresses the urgent need in indus- trialized societies for both theoretical and practical frameworks that promote new, sustainable meth- ods of living. It is a valuable addition to the fields of green political science, social change theory, environmental thought, and radical planning. Mike Carr has been active for decades in the social justice, peace, and ecology movements, in addition to bioregionalism. For the past several years he has taught geography, urban studies, and First Nations studies at the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University.

Mehta “With its tight focus on social implications gener- ally and social cohesion particularly, Biotechnol- ogy Unglued has a unique niche in the very ‘hot’ area of biotechnology. This focus is its strength and comparative advantage, and will set it apart from the rest of the literature, both existing and forthcoming.” – William Leiss, School of Policy Studies, Queen’s University Proponents of biotechnology claim that advances in this technology will create a better world – a world free of malnutrition and hunger, with less reliance on herbicides and pesticides, better medical diagnosis and treatment through gene discovery, and more efficient policing and prosecution with forensic techniques using DNA evidence. All of this sounds too good to be true. While some innovations in bio- technology provide significant benefits to particular users, the impacts of these technologies on society are often poorly understood. Can biotechnology threaten the social fabric by weakening, even if temporarily, the social cohesion of society? This collection of eight case studies shows how particular applications in agricultural, medical, and forensic biotechnology affect the social co- hesiveness of agricultural communities, citizens of the developed and developing world, consumer groups, scientific communities, and society in gen- eral. These impacts may be regional and sectoral, national, or global in nature, or specific to particular scientific communities. Each chapter in this book shows the two faces of biotechnology by exposing the promises and perils associated with a range of innovations. The contributors demonstrate how particular kinds of technology-society and technology-corporate configurations affect social cohesion by creating cultures of surveillance, competition, social exclu- sion, and control. While advances in biotechnology continue to be made in laboratories around the world, a significant social experiment is occur- ring simultaneously. Will these new technologies unravel, or perhaps realign, the social fabric as we know it? Biotechnology Unglued explores these questions in  investigating the impacts of technol- ogy on social cohesion. These essays make a significant contribution to the fields of sociology, agriculture, biotechnology, and environmental studies, and will be indispensible to scholars, policy makers, rural development agen- cies, farmers, and non-governmental organizations. Its engaging and accessible style will appeal to anyone interested in the social dimensions of biotechnology.

C A ENVIRONMENT WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/ENVIRONMENT A Dynamic Balance Social Capital and Sustainable Community Development Edited by Ann Dale and Jenny Onyx A Dynamic Balance aims to illustrate the links between two normally disparate literatures – social capital and sustainable development – within the overall context of local community development. Since the social dimension of sustainable development is the least under- stood of what are often viewed as its three imperatives (the other two being the ecological and economic), the book illuminates the impor- tance of understanding this dimension and how it can be mobilized at the community level. This is shown by applied research in a number of small, predominantly rural Australian and Cana- dian communities. Given the number of small communities in both countries struggling to diversify from single- resource economies in a context of increas- ing globalization, this topic touches on several critical public policy issues. The contributors argue that the key strategies for communities to respond to the issues they are facing must be embedded in the dialectics of sustainable development. Unless this critical imperative is met, single-resource economy communities will continue to face ecological, social, and economic collapse. This book will appeal to both specialists in the fields of social capital and sustainable develop- ment, and to wider audiences, such as busi- ness administration students, development experts, and public policy decision-makers.

Increasingly, much of the responsibility for com- munity-based prosperity and survival is falling to communities themselves. This book is drawn from a three-year participatory research project with four communities in British Columbia: two municipalities (Salmon Arm and 100 Mile House/South Cariboo) and two Aboriginal communities (the Upper St’at’imc represented by the Lillooet Tribal Council, and the Nuxalk of Bella Coola). The first part examines historical and contemporary forces of restructuring, linking the way in which rural communities have developed with the legacy of resource development and Abo- riginal marginalization. The second part presents the theoretical and practical dynamics of the community economic development process and outlines various strategies that communities can initiate to diversify their local economies. As rural and small-town communities struggle to confront complex forces of change, sound theo- retical frameworks and tested best practices are important tools in facilitating the prospects for second growth. Sean Markey, John Pierce, Kelly Vodden, and Mark Roseland are members of the Centre for Sustainable Community Development (formerly the Community Economic Development Centre) at Simon Fraser University.

Quinn Thomas Quinn distills from the vast scientific lit- erature the essential information on the behaviour and ecology of Pacific salmon. Unlike other books that examine only selected life stages, habitats, or species, this book – richly illustrated with beautiful photographs and original artwork – thoroughly covers the complete life cycle, emphasizing com- mon themes and differences among the various species of salmon. Representing the range of species and geographic regions, Quinn includes examples from classic studies by pioneers of salmon biology and from the most current research in order to illustrate the important features of salmon life history and behaviour and the complex physical, biological, and human factors that affect them. He intro- duces salmon and trout as a group, with a brief description of each species, and compares them to other fishes. The book then follows salmon on their amazing homeward migration from the open ocean, through the complex coastal waters, upstream to the precise location where they were spawned years earlier. This thorough survey should be on the shelf of everyone with a professional or personal interest in Pacific salmon and trout. Written in a techni- cally accurate but engaging style, it will appeal to a wide range of readers, including students, anglers, biologists, conservationists, legislators, and armchair naturalists.

Shepard and A.W. Argue “Both authors have been deeply immersed in Canada’s management of its salmon resources and conflicts with US fisheries. The treatment of the subject is nicely balanced and even-handed… This masterful account is likely to be the definitive work, given its combination of breadth and depth with the added value of a balanced insider’s view.” – Edward L. Miles, Professor, School of Marine Affairs, University of Washington For thousands of years, Pacific salmon have been the focus for the economic and social development of societies, both ancient and modern, around the rim of the North Pacific Ocean.  Conducting lengthy oceanic migrations, the salmon pass through coastal waters of Alaska, British Columbia, and the northwest United States, completing their last journeys to their rivers of origin where they spawn and die. In dense homeward aggregations, they form lucrative targets for Canadian and United States fishermen who compete vigorously as the migrations pass southeastward. Beginning late in the 19th century and culminating in the 1985 Pacific Salmon Treaty, Canada and the United States carried out long and contentious negotiations to provide a framework for coopera- tion for conserving and sharing the vitally important Pacific salmon resource. The 1985 Pacifc Salmon Treaty traces the history of the tumultuous nego- tiations, providing an insider’s perspective on the many complex issues that were addressed.  It concludes with a brief assessment of the treaty’s performance under the difficult economic and environmental circumstances that have prevailed in the fishery since 1985. This incisive work, with its unique historical perspec- tive, will be of great interest to the Canadian and United States fishing communities affected by the treaty, to the general public, politicians, and fish- eries specialists in both countries concerned with stewardship of natural resources, and to scholars of international law and regional history. W.P. Shepard was a technical advisor to the Pacific Salmon Treaty negotiations from 1958 to 1976, and negotiator from 1977 to 1983. A.W. Argue was a technical advisor during treaty negotiations and after implementation in 1985.

Preece is the most learned person in the area writing today. His knowledge in the field is encyclopedic, and unlike many historians, he has a gift for relating the historical to contemporary conceptual issues.” – Bernard Rollin, author of Animal Rights and Human Morality, The Unheeded Cry: Animal Consciousness, Animal Pain and Scientific Change, Farm Animal Welfare, and The Frankenstein Syndrome “The scholarship is impressive. Few, if any, other researchers can match his knowledge of the historical record.” -- Angus Taylor, author of Animals and Ethics: An Overview of the Philosophi- cal Debate In this provocative inquiry into the status of animals in human society from the fifth century BC to the present, Rod Preece provides a wholly new per- spective on the human–animal relationship. Brute Souls, Happy Beasts, and Evolution traces the historical status of animals in western civilization, and shows that current scholarship in this area is seriously deficient. Preece particularly contests the customary claims: that the Christian doctrine has denied immortality to animals, with the cor- responding implication that they were thereby denied ethical consideration; that there was a near universal belief animals were intended for human use, with the corresponding implication that they were not ends in themselves, and were thus not entitled to ethical consideration; that Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution had a profoundly positive impact on the way in which nonhuman animals were regarded and treated; and that the idea of the “happy beast” was merely a trope to condemn humans for their hubris and was not at all a sincere attempt to raise the status of animals. Rod Preece believes that our ethical responsibilities to animals are ill served by the current simplistic and misleading conception of the historical record, and with this book, attempts a significant re-thinking of the human–animal perspective. Brute Souls, Happy Beasts, and Evolution will be required reading for those from animal scientists to animal philosophers to animal rights activ- ists who have an interest in the history and philosophy of animal ethics. In contrast to prevailing intellectual opinion, Preece argues that a significant number of early Christians were vegetarian; that control of nature was often undertaken not at the expense of animals but, in part, out of exasperation at their tribulations; that the Cartesian conception of animals as automata was largely rejected, especially in the English-speaking world; that Darwin’s theory of natural selection had no appreciable influence on the status of animals; and, finally, that “theriophily” – the notion of animal superiority over humans – was given greater credence than is commonly recognized.

Filson As globalization restructures agriculture and rural communities, the impacts of industrial- ized farming have captured public attention. Concerns are mounting about food quality, manure runoff, greenhouse gases, extra-label use of antibiotics, pesticide use, and rural con- flict. This collection outlines the advantages of farming systems analysis for understanding the implications of modern, intensive agricul- ture and for evaluating its sustainabilty. Contributors look at the major environmental and social problems connected with intensive farming, and discuss key linkages among the environmental, economic, and social indica- tors. They also outline modelling trade-offs between profitability and environmental sus- tainability, and provide case studies that ana- lyze farming systems. The book concludes that rural conflict and government regulation are likely to continue unless the public joins with farmers to help fund stewardship prac- tices and stabilize farm incomes. The magnitude and complexity of the problems posed by intensive agriculture make interdis- ciplinary analyses of the linkages among the social, environmental, and economic aspects of farming ever more vital. This book moves the discussion in new directions and will appeal to field practitioners, agricultural and environmental policy analysts, geographers, and those scholars and students weary of the pervasive production-oriented disciplinary focus that typifies most agricultural research.

OCTOBER 2004 252 pages, 23 tables, 14 figures, 6 x 9” hc $85.00, ISBN 0-7748-1104-8 RECENTLY RELEASED Literature on the life history of birds is abundant and knowledge continues to grow. But there are few reference documents that compile this infor- mation so it is readily available without conducting extensive literature searches. In this book, information on habitat, limiting fac- tors, and status is summarized for 84 species of nonpasserines that occur regularly in Ontario. These topics are covered for the three primary avian seasons: breeding, migration, and winter. Habitat, nest sites, territoriality, site fidelity, annual reproductive effort, habitat loss and degradation, environmental contaminants, and a variety of other topics are covered in the species accounts. A map depicting breeding and wintering range is presented for each species, and illustrations by Ross James accompany each listing. This will be an essential reference for wildlife bi- ologists, environmental consultants, and planners preparing or reviewing environmental impact state- ments and environmental assessments. Serious birders will find it of interest as well. Although the book focuses on Ontario birds, it is highly relevant to adjacent provinces and states. Al Sandilands is Senior Ecologist and principal of Gray Owl Environmental Inc. His formal learn- ing focused on fisheries and aquatic entomology but, through his long-time interest in birds, he has evolved into a wildlife biologist. For most of his career, he has been an environmental consultant. Ross James, an ornithologist by profession, has pursued bird illustration for more than 40 years. He has published illustrations in two volumes of the Breeding Birds of Ontario, in the Atlas of the Breeding Birds of Ontario, on covers of Ontario Birds, and in the Birds of North America species accounts.

C A 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, shifts between resource development and recrea- tional use, recurring motifs of water and rock in landscape design and representation, the evolution of regional identity, and the environ- mental politics of place read through debates about resource management and parks. 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 not a narrowly conceived local history but a focused argu- ment about how places take on shifting cul- tural meanings over time. It speaks to a wide variety of interests, including geography, art and design, literary criticism, environmental studies, and history.

No other volume brings together a variety of gendered perspectives on ecolog- ical and environmental issues in Canada.” -- Diana M.A. Relke, author of Greenwor(l)ds: Ecocritical Essays on Poetry by Canadian Women This Elusive Land provides an introduction to the literature about women and the environ- ment in Canada. It looks at the ways in which women integrate the social and biophysical 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. Drawing from geographical, historical, and cultural perspectives, the volume reveals the significance of women’s experiences in vari- ous 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 environmental perspective look like, especially in the Canadian context? And finally, and perhaps most important, 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 dynamic relationship between gender and environment, this book also informs readers of the ways in which both physical and social landscapes continue to evolve.

He makes a good case for looking at the tourist trade from the perspective of the image-makers, showing how tourism promoters stimulated consumer demand. 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, author of The Second Greatest Disap- pointment: Honeymooning and Tourism at Niagara Falls Selling British Columbia examines the develop- ment of the tourist industry in British Columbia throughout the twentieth century. Looking at tourism from an innovative perspective, Michael Dawson shows how the province’s Aboriginal and British cultures were commodified 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 Depression and the Second World War – ostensibly periods of “underconsumption” -- for the development of tourism promotion and con- sumerism in general.

In these heart- breaking times of loss when so many of our price- less cultural 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 “Michael Kluckner’s paintbrush is one stroke ahead of the bulldozers that are so quickly crunching Brit- ish Columbia’s history into dust. His words convince us to seriously consider otherwise and to treasure and preserve what’s left.” – Mark Forsythe, CBC commentator and host of BC Almanac “Vanishing British Columbia evokes the province’s material heritage through words and images in a most original way. Michael Kluckner goes well beyond the legacy of the dominant society and incorporates Aboriginal, Doukhobor, Chinese, and Japanese sites. He demonstrates a fine grasp both of the entirety of the province and of its specifics, not easily acquired in as spatially diverse and complex a place as is British Columbia.” – Jean Barman, writer and historian The old buildings and historic places of British Columbia form a kind of “roadside memory,” a tangible link with stories of settlement, change, and abandonment that reflect the great themes of our history. With small towns declining and old rural properties changing, so little of the history of these places has been recorded in museums or archives, and so much of it may disappear as families disperse and memories dim. More than a decade ago, Michael Kluckner began painting 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 even- tually led him to the family letters, photo albums, and memories – all from a disappearing era of the province. Vanishing British Columbia is a record of these places and the stories they tell. It combines engaging and insightful historical commentary with over 160 of the author’s original paintings. It has an exceptional assortment of historic imagery, including old postcards, architectural plans, and photographs. The study of roadside memory demonstrates the visceral connection that people, especially those who are part of the rural-to-urban diaspora of modern times, have for the sites of their fam- ily memories. On a grander scale this approach leads to a broader understanding of more abstract historical themes and of the province’s history and culture. It also presents a compelling argument for stewardship of regional history in the face of urbanization and globalization. Michael Kluckner is a writer, artist, and heritage activist who has spent decades exploring the high- ways and byways of British Columbia.

C A HISTORY / MILITARY HISTORY WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/MILITARYHISTORY Fight or Pay Soldiers’ Families in the Great War Desmond Morton “Desmond Morton has written a work that helps to fill a void of information about a turbulent period in our history. It will, I am sure, become a key reference work for those studying the economic and social aspects of the home front during the Great War.” – Steven Dieter, The Globe and Mail “Fight or Pay is a beautifully written book about the history of a society and its government in wartime. Not only does Morton shed fascinating light on the topic of soldiers’ dependants, but he reveals the much broader implications for the study of gender, class, state power, and race.” – Jonathan Vance, author of Death So Noble: Memory, Meaning, and the First World War “Fight or Pay is a fascinating story of how families managed during the absence of their male rela- tives, told by a scholar with a deep knowledge of the Great War. A major contribution to Canadian history.” – Margaret Conrad, co-author of History of the Canadian Peoples In the collective memory of Canadians, the Great War exists as a tragedy. Characterized by the brutality of trench warfare, the First World War is re- membered largely for the immense sacrifice of life and limb that Canadian soldiers made. In Fight or Pay, Desmond Morton turns to the stories of those who paid in other ways: the wives, mothers, and families left behind when soldiers went to war. Aware that the recruiting effort might fail if men were forced to choose between their families and the front, the Canadian government and its wealthy backers introduced the Canadian Patriotic Fund, known in its day as “the Patriotic.” Charged with support of soldiers’ loved ones, the Patriotic and its volunteers set out to transform them into a mid- dle-class model of frugality and self-denial. At the same time, the Militia Department took on the task of determining which dependants a soldier could or should support. Suddenly, the state and private philanthropists were managing family decisions that had never been their business before. Fight or Pay brings to light the lives of thousands of valiant women whose sacrifices have been overlooked. It is an incisive, humane look at the beginning of a social welfare system that Canadians have come to think of as intrinsic to citizenship. This is a compelling addition to the landscape of Canadian history. Desmond Morton is Hiram Mills Professor in the Department of History at McGill University.

Quiring Saskatchewan’s Co-operative Commonwealth Fed- eration (CCF), the forerunner of the NDP, is often remembered for its humanitarian platform and pioneering social programs. But during the twenty years it governed, it wrought a less scrutinized legacy in the northern regions of the province. Until the 1940s, churches, fur traders, and other influential newcomers held firm control over Sas- katchewan’s northern region. Following its rise to power in 1944, the CCF made aggressive efforts to unseat these traditional powers and install a new socialist economy and society in largely Aboriginal communities. The next two decades brought major changes to the region as well-meaning govern- ment planners grossly misjudged the challenges that confronted the north and failed to implement programs that would meet its needs. Northerners lacked the voice and political clout to determine policies for their half of the province, and the CCF effectively created a colonial apparatus, impos- ing its own ideas and plans in those communities without consulting residents. While it did ensure that parish priests, bootleggers, and “fur sharks” no longer dominated the north, it failed to establish a workable alternative. David Quiring draws on extensive archival research and oral history to offer a fresh look at the CCF era. This examination will find a welcome audience among historians of the north, Aboriginal schol- ars, and general readers interested in Canadian history. David M.

My choice for Canada? Bert Hoffmeister! Read The Soldiers’ General and you will understand why.” – Lewis MacKenzie, OOnt, MSC,CD, Major General (ret’d) “Canadian military historians have been waiting for someone to do this study – and they will be well satisfied with the results. Delaney is intuitively, intellectually, and experientially comfortable with his subject, and I would not consider my personal library complete without this book.” – Stephen Harris, co-editor of Warrior Chiefs: Per- spectives on Senior Canadian Military Leaders “This biography is outstanding, and will set the standard for future studies. It should be read by all those interested in Canadian military history, but will have an especially strong appeal to serv- ing and recently retired members of the Canadian Forces, because of the discussion of leadership and command issues.” – Terry Copp, author of Fields of Fire: The Canadi- ans in Normandy Self-doubt so plagued him that he suffered a nervous breakdown even before fighting his first combat action. But, by the end of the Second World War, Bert Hoffmeister had exorcised his anxieties, risen from Captain to Major-General, and won more awards than any Canadian officer in the war. Fighting from the invasion of Sicily in July 1943 to the final victory in Europe in May 1945, this native Vancouverite earned a reputation as a fearless commander on the battlefield – one who led from the front, one well loved by those he led. How did he do it? The Soldiers’ General explains, in eloquent and accessible prose, how Hoffmeister conducted his business as a military commander. With an astute analytical eye, Delaney carefully dissects Hoffmeister’s numerous battles to reveal how he managed and how he led, how he directed and how he inspired. An exemplary leader, Hoffmeister stood out among his contemporaries, not so much for his technical ability to move the chess pieces well; there were plenty who could do that. Rather, Bert Hoffmeister was exceptional for his ability to get the chess pieces to move themselves. The most comprehensive and easy-to-understand study of any Canadian military commander to date, The Soldiers’ General will appeal as much to the student of military history as it will to anyone in search of a good story.

Scott Sheffield “Sheffield’s account of how the Native community was perceived by non-Natives has never been duplicated or even attempted. This book adds a great deal to our understanding of the war era.” -- Michael D. Stevenson, author of Canada’s Great- est Wartime Muddle During the Second World War, thousands of First Nations people joined in the national crusade to defend freedom and democracy. High rates of Native enlistment and public demonstrations of pa- triotism encouraged Canadians to re-examine the roles and status of First Nations people in Canadian society. The Red Man’s on the Warpath explores how wartime symbolism and imagery propelled these issues onto the national agenda. For most English Canadians, the word “Indian” conjured up a complex framework of visual im- agery, stereotypes, and assumptions that enabled them to explain the place of First Nations people in the national story. Sheffield examines how First Nations people were discussed in both the administrative realm -- that is, by the members of the Indian Affairs Branch and other federal depart- ments -- and the public realm, where images of the “Indian” were constructed and transformed by editorials, news stories, motion pictures, radio broadcasts, and literary pieces. The book draws upon a remarkable array of sources to track English Canadians’ perceptions of First Nations people before, during, and immediately after the Second World War. R.

C A HISTORY WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/HISTORY Longitude and Empire How Captain Cook’s Voyages Changed the World Brian W. Richardson “Longitude and Empire is cogently and quite brilliantly organized. In summarizing how Cook organized his narratives, Brian Richardson shows how our world view has been shaped by Cook’s – a fascinating and well-illustrated argument. Cook and his narratives are the template for most if not all who followed, and as such, this critical assessment of Cook and the literature has importance beyond the man and his own explorations – this is an es- sential book for anyone interested in the general subject of Enlightenment exploration – and perhaps for all exploration that follows.” – James Delgado, Director, Vancouver Maritime Museum No one had travelled like Captain Cook, and no one can again. Before his three voyages, the world was uncertain and dangerous; after them, it was clear and safe. Written as a conceptual field guide to the voyages, Longitude and Empire offers a significant rereading of both the voyages and of modern political philosophy. While the voyages are not explicitly works of po- litical philosophy, they are political philosophy by other means, offering new ways of thinking about the world and about the place of human beings have in that world. More than any other work, they mark the shift from early modern to modern ways of looking at the world, a world that is no longer divided into Europeans and savages, but is populated by an almost overwhelming variety of national identities. Cook’s voyages took what fragmented and obscure descriptions of the world that were available and consolidated them into a single textual, tabular vision of the entire world. Places thus became clear and distinct, their locations were fixed, and everything inside – people, animals, plants and artifacts – was identified, collected, understood, and assimilated into a single world order. The Pacific was a test case for a new way of knowing and relating to the world. Then, it was possible to seriously travel only in Cook’s wake, to be always already moving either within, or in reaction to his accounts of the world. As the culmination of global exploration, Cook’s voyages became the ideal, and it is through Cook, after Cook, that Europe regrouped what knowledge they already had, and returned to the world with new epistemological and political expectations. This fascinating and informative account offers a new understanding of Captain Cook’s voyages and how they affected Europe’s world view. It will engage historians, geographers, ethnographers, Cook enthusiasts, and anyone with an interest in epistemology or how the world was mapped.

Drawing on extensive archival sources and daily newspapers of the period, he brings us into the communities of Lethbridge, Alberta, Guelph, Ontario, and Trois- Rivières, Quebec, where, though miles and worlds away from the fighting overseas, involvement in the war effort and the subsequent stories of the war helped shape Canada’s collective memory. The making of Canada’s home front was experi- enced, fundamentally, through local means. City parades, military send-offs, public school events, women’s war relief efforts, and other local exer- cises staged in hometown settings became the parochial windows through which a distant war was viewed. Rutherdale also addresses the important social and cultural debates that emerged from this time, including the demonization of enemy aliens, the crossing of gender- and class-based boundaries, state authority and citizenship, and commemoration and social memory. There is no other book that looks at Canada’s First World War history from this perspective. Hometown Horizons contributes to a growing body of work on the social and cultural histories of the First World War, and this history, of a war as seen from the home front, will find an eager readership among social and military historians, cultural studies scholars, and anyone interested in wartime Canada. Robert Rutherdale is a member of the Depart- ment of History at Algoma University College.

Meehan “This book makes a significant original contribution as the only detailed treatment of Canada’s rela- tions with Japan during this period. The subject is important, providing balance as it does to the usual concentration on the North Atlantic as the focus of Canada’s external relations.” – John Hilliker, author of Canada’s Department of External Affairs The Dominion and the Rising Sun is the first major study of Canada’s diplomatic arrival in Japan and, by extension, East Asia. It examines the political, economic, and cultural relations forged during this seminal period between the foremost power in Asia and the young dominion tentatively establishing itself in world affairs. The book begins with the opening in 1929 of the Canadian legation in Tokyo -- Canada’s third such office overseas -- and concludes with the outbreak of hostilities in 1941. Primarily a diplo- matic history, the book also assesses the impact of traders, interest groups, and missionaries on Canadian attitudes toward Japan during the interwar years. More fundamentally, it examines Canada’s diplomatic coming of age closely, reveal- ing its important Pacific dimension and the tension between Canada’s commitment to peace and its trade with an aggressor.

Canada and the End of Empire deals with the implications to Canada and Canadians of British decolonization and the end of empire – particularly during the period of rapid disengage- ment during the 1950s and 60s. Contributors not only look at the political and diplo- matic pressures behind the dismantling of empire, but they also embrace a broad range of themes, including the changing economic relationship with Great Britain, the role of educational and cultural institutions in maintaining the British connection, the Suez Crisis, the royal tour of 1959, the deci- sion to adopt a new flag in 1964, the efforts to find a formula for repatriating the constitution, the Canadianization of the Royal Canadian Navy, and the attitudes of First Nations to the changed nature of the Anglo-Canadian relationship. Historians in Commonwealth countries tend to look at the end of British rule from a nationalist perspective. This book challenges this view and demonstrates the centrality of imperial history in Canadian historiography. An important addition to the growing canon of empire studies and imperial history, Canada and the End of Empire will be of interest to historians of the Commonwealth, and to scholars and students interested in the relationship between colonialism and nationalism.

DECEMBER 2004 352 pages, 4 figures, 1 table, 6 x 9” hc $85.00, ISBN 0-7748-0915-9 RECENTLY RELEASED NOW IN PAPERBACK Gutenberg in Shanghai Chinese Print Capitalism, 1876–1937 Christopher A. Reed In the mid-1910s, what historians call the “Golden Age of Chinese Capitalism” began, accompanied by a technological transformation that included the drastic expansion of China’s “Gutenberg revolution.” Gutenberg in Shanghai examines this porocess. It finds the origins of that revolution in the country’s printing industries of the late imperial period and analyzes their subsequent development in the Republican era. This book, which relies on documents previously unavailable to both Western and Chinese research- ers, demonstrates how Western technology and evolving traditional values resulted in the birth of a unique form of print capitalism whose influence on Chinese culture was far-reaching and irreversible. Its conclusion contests scholarly arguments that view China’s technological development as slowed by culture, or that interpret Chinese modernity as mere cultural continuity. A vital reevaluation of Chinese modernity, Guten- berg in Shanghai will be enthusiastically received by scholars of Chinese history and by specialists in cultural studies, political science, sociology, the history of the book, and the anthropology of science and technology.

C A Frontier People Han Settlers in Minority Areas of China Mette Halskov Hansen Chinese migration to Tibet and other border areas – now within the People’s Republic of China – has long been a politically sensitive issue. As part of an ongoing process of internal colonization, migrations to minority areas have been, with few exceptions, directly organized by the government or driven by economic motives. Dramatic demographic and economic changes, often spearheaded not by local inhabitants but by Han Chinese immigrants, have been the result. Frontier People shows how the Han them- selves have been directly involved in the process of transformation within these areas where they have settled. Their perceptions of the minority natives, their “old home,” other immigrants, and their own role in the areas are examined in relation to the official discourse on the migrations. This study contests con- ventional ways of presenting Han immigrants in minority areas as a homogeneous group of colonizers with shared identification, equal class status, and access to power. Based on extensive fieldwork in two local areas, Frontier People demonstrates that the category of “Han immigrants” is profoundly fragmented in terms of generation, ethnic identification, mi- gration history, class, and economic activity. In this respect, the book makes an invaluable contribution to the literature on colonization from the varying perspectives of the coloniz- ers – a diverse group of people with equally diverse perceptions of the colonial project in which they play an integral part. This incisive volume will appeal to a wide range of scholars and students of anthropol- ogy, Asian studies, history, and immigration studies. » ALSO OF INTEREST The Oriental Question Consolidating a White Man’s Province, 1914–41 Patricia E.

Flath History and art come together in this definitive discussion of the Chinese woodblock print form of nianhua, literally “New Year pictures.” By analyzing the role of nianhua first in the home and later in commercial and political theatres, James Flath relates them to the social, cultural, and political milieu of North China from the late Qing dynasty to the early 1950s. Among the first studies in any field to treat folk art and folk print as historical text, The Cult of Happiness offers original insight into popular conceptions of domesticity, morality, gender, society, modernity, and the transformation of the genre as a propaganda tool under communism. An extraordinary ac- count of the cultural life of rural North China over the period. This richly illustrated volume will appeal to a wide range of scholars in Asian studies, history, art history, folklore, and print, as well as anyone having a passion for the creativity and culture of rural society.

Obedient Autonomy Chinese Intellectuals and the Achievement of Orderly Life Erika E.S. Evasdottir In the west, the idea of autonomy is often associated with a sense of freedom -- a self-interested state of being, unfettered by rules or obligations to others. In this original anthropological study, Erika Evasdottir ex- plores a type of “obedient” autonomy that thrives on setbacks, blossoms as more rules are imposed, and flourishes in adversity. Obedient Autonomy analyzes this model, and explains its precepts by examining the specialized and highly organized discipline of archeology in China. This book follows Chinese students on their journey to becoming fully-fledged archeolo- gists in a bureaucracy-saturated environment. The analysis of China’s complex social system, through the experience of these students, reveals how hierarchy, reciprocity, compatibility, and authority are construed and how obedient autonomy is fostered in the teacher-student relationship. Moreover, it demonstrates how this form of autonomy enables individuals to order and control their future careers in a seemingly disorderly and uncertain world. A masterly contextualization of archeology in China, Obedient Autonomy shows how the discipline has accommodated itself to a Chinese social structure, and uncovers the moral, ethical, political, and economic underpinnings of that context. It will be ac- cessible to students of anthropology even as it will provoke Euro-American archeologists and interest social theorists of science, phi- losophers, gender theorists, and students of Chinese society. NOW IN PAPERBACK After receiving her doctor- ate in Social Anthropology from Harvard University, Erika E.S. Evasdottir was a Killam post-doctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia. Her research focus is now Chi- nese law, including issues of bureaucracy and author- ity within the Chinese legal community.
