1Do Glaciers Listen?Local Knowledge, Colonial Encounters, and Social ImaginationJulie CruikshankThe glaciers creepLike snakes that watch their prey, from their far fountains,Slow rolling on.-- Percy Shelley, ?Mont Blanc,? 1816Glaciers  in  America?s  far  northwest  ?gure  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 con?icting depictions of glaciers to show how natural and social histories are entangled. During late stages of the Little Ice Age, signi?cant 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 ?nd  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.??

They are powerful imaginative resources that help  to  explain  or  negotiate  con?ict  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  Dif ference ,  Leslie  Rober tson 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 b y   re s i d e n t s   o f   F e r n i e ,   B r i t i s h   C o l u m b i a , a  coal-mining  town  on  its  way  to  becom -ing  an  international  ski  resor t.  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  of?cial  and  contested histories,  social  and  scienti?c  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  per form -ances, mass media, and processes of place-making, Robertson examines forms of social knowledge  circulating  within  local  settings, w h i c h   s h a p e   s h a re d   u n d e r s t a n d i n g s   a n d common-sense views of the world.DECEMBER 2004  320 pages, 6 x 9?  20 b/w photos, 2 maps  hc $85.00  ISBN 0-7748-1092-0ANTHROPOLOGY  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/ANTHROPOLOGY ?

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,  cour t  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.

ReidTranslated by  Daisy Sewid-SmithAgnes 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 ?rst-hand account of the most signi?cant period of change she and her people experienced since ?rst contact, and her memoirs ?ow 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 ful?ll her role as a noble matriarch in her ever-changing society, thus providing a role model for those who came after her.

Richard Atleo)Western  philosophy  has  long  held  scienti?c 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 a s   a n   i n t e g r a t e d   a n d   o rd e r l y   w h o l e ,   a n d 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 scienti?c worldviews.NOW IN PAPERBACKE.

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 TorontoThe 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 re s o u rc e s .   B e c a u s e   t h e i r   s a c re d   s i t e s   s p i r i t u -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  ?ght  to the courts.First Nations Sacred Sites in Canada?s Courts  is the ?rst  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, ?nally, to re?ect 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 pro?t by anyone interested  in  the  evolving  relationship  between indigenous peoples and the modern state.Michael  Ross   has  a law  degree  from the  Univer -sity  of  British  Columbia  and  is  working  on  a  PhD in philosophy at the University of Toronto.

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  exper t  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 s e v e r a l   y e a r s   d o c u m e n t i n g   t h e i r   i n s t i t u t i o n s , s y s t e m   o f   p ro d u c t i o n   a n d   e x c h a n g e ,   d i s p u t e 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  ?eld  of  forager  studies  and emphasizes the kinship and gift exchange features that pervade these societies even today.

In all,  Between Justice and Certainty  offers a refreshing analysis of a complex situation.?? Peter Kulchyski, Head of Native Studies, University of ManitobaThe 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 ?rst, 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 ?rst  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, ?eld 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.Andrew  Woolford   is  Assistant  Professor  in  the  Department  of  Sociology at the University of Manitoba.LAW AND SOCIETY SERIESFEBRUARY  240 pages, est., 6 x 9?hc $85.00  ISBN 0-7748-1131-5NATIVE STUDIES / LAW  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/LAW?

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 UniversityGood  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  re?ections 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. Bogart  teaches in the Faculty of Law at the University of Windsor.

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  con?ict.  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.

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-de?ned  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 rede?ne 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  ?out due process rights.

Donald  Galloway,  Professor  of  Law,  University of VictoriaR e f u g e e s   a re   o n   t h e   m o v e   a ro u n d   t h e   g l o b e . 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.

Buck, and  Nancy E. WrightIn  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  proper ty  rights  in settled  colonies  of  the  Empire.  The  contributors consider how the land was perceived by indigenous peoples, colonial of?cials, and settlers; how these groups viewed their relationship with the land; and how local interests con?icted 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.

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, s o c i o l o g i c a l ,   e c o n o m i c ,   g e o p o l i t i c a l ,   a n d   h i s -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.

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  recon?guration  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 recon?gured 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.

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 ?elds.

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.

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  de?ne criminal conduct in contemporary society, and how we respond to it once it has been identi?ed. Drawing from diverse scholarly traditions ? includ -ing  law,  sociology,  criminology,  and  socio-legal studies  ?  these  essays  look  at  the  processes of  de?ning  crime,  and  consider  the  varied  and complex  implications  of  decisions  to  criminalize certain behaviour. From the perspective of various case studies, the contributors re?ect on the social processes that inform de?nitions 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.

Butler   --  in  which  the  Supreme Court  identi?ed  pornography  as  an  issue  of sex  discrimination  --  applies  to  pornography intended for a lesbian or gay male audience. The  Court  held  that  it  did,  ?nding  that,  like heterosexual pornography, same-sex pornog -raphy also violates the sex equality interests of all Canadians.Christopher  Kendall  suppor ts  this  ?nding, 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 c o m m u n i t y   e t h i c   a n d   i d e n t i t y   p o l i t i c   t h a t encourages inequality.Gay  Male  Pornography   will  foster  a  much broader debate about gay male identity and those  legal  strategies  aimed  at  promoting it.

Joblessness was viewed as a social problem and the jobless as its unfortunate victims. While unemployment insurance expanded over  several  decades  to  the  bene?t  of  the  rights o f   t h e   u n e m p l o y e d ,   t h e   m i d - 1 9 7 0 s   s a w   t h e ?rst  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  in?ationary  and  unproductive.  This  regressive movement culminated in a major policy shift in the 1990s. The number of unemployed with access to bene?ts 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.

Unwilling  Mothers,  Unwanted  Babies   is  a  very good and unique contribution in a ?eld where there are no other comparable books. 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 OttawaThis 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  dif?culties,  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.K i r s t e n   K r a m a r   p ro v i d e s   a n   i n t e rd i s c i p l i n a r y feminist  approach  to  the  study  of  infanticide  law, e x a m i n i n g   a n d   l i n k i n g   h i s t o r i c a l ,   s o c i o l o g i c a l , 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.

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 signi?cance, and lending support to calls for a ?get tough? approachUnwilling  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.Kirsten Johnson Kramar  teaches in the Depart -ment of Sociology at the University of Winnipeg.LAW AND SOCIETY SERIESAPRIL  288 pages, est., 6 x 9?1 tablehc $85.00  ISBN 0-7748-1176-5LAW  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/LAWThe Heiress vs the EstablishmentMrs. Campbell?s Campaign for Legal JusticeConstance Backhouse andNancy L.

Framing  his  discus -sion around the Canadian Democratic Audit?s central  concerns  of  inclusiveness,  public par ticipation,  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   h i g h l y   o r i g i n a l   v o l u m e   o f   t h e   C a n a d i a n Democratic  Audit,  Communication  Technol -o g y   p o s e s   s o m e   p ro v o c a t i v e   q u e s t i o n s about the state of Canadian democracy and the  place  of  ICTs  in  shaping  and  improving it.

The  right  to  vote  is  now  generously  interpreted. The process of redrawing electoral districts is no longer in the hands of elected of?cials.

Members of such groups, however, are themselves often deeply involved in traditional political  circles  and  par ty  politics.  Who  par tici -pates in advocacy groups? Which kinds of groups dominate the political agenda? What in?uence 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  ?nd,  however,  that  groups  with greater  ?nancial  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 in?uence public policy, as well as for ways that governments can engage in constructive consultation with groups.Lisa  Young   is  an  associate  professor  in  the  De -partment  of  Political  Science  at  the  University  of Calgary.

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  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, Siobh?n 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 NationalismCivilizing Difference, Constituting CommunityGerald KernermanCanadian  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 de?ne 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.??

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.

Cairns,  one  of  the  most  in?uential  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 ?elds. 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  Char ter  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.

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  par ty  can  be  seen  as  organizationally congruent with its ideological antithesis, the Green Party. Armed with seven years of ?eld research on the  FCP,  MacKenzie  illustrates  the  obstacles  that political parties that do social movement work ? or par ty/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.

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  rede?ned,  it  is  timely and relevant.??  Mar tha  Friendly,  Childcare  Resource  and  Re -search Unit, University of TorontoWe  often  think  that  care  is  personal  or  intimate, w h e re a s   c i t i z e n s h i p   i s   p o l i t i c a l   a n d   p u b l i c .   I n Care fair, 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.  Care fair 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   w e l c o m e   a d d i t i o n   t o   t h e   l i t e r a t u re ,   C a re f a i r 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.

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.Olena  Hankivsky   is  Associate  Professor  in  the D e p a r t m e n t   o f   P o l i t i c a l   S c i e n c e ,   a n d   A d j u n c t Professor in the Department of Women?s Studies at Simon Fraser University.OCTOBER 2004  188 pages, 6 x 9?  hc $85.00, ISBN 0-7748-1070-XRECENTLY RELEASED24 O R D E R   F R O M   uni PRESSES  TEL: 1 877 864 8477POLITICS / EDUCATION  WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/POLITICSStudent AffairsExperiencing Higher EducationEdited by  Lesley Andres and  Finola Finlay Who  has  access  to  higher  education  today?

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-speci?c, 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.

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 UniversityProponents 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 ef?cient  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 signi?cant bene?ts 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 par ticular  applications  in  agricultural,  medical, and  forensic  biotechnology  affect  the  social  co -hesiveness  of  agricultural  communities,  citizens of the developed and developing world, consumer groups, scienti?c communities, and society in gen -eral. These impacts may be regional and sectoral,  national, or global in nature, or speci?c to particular scienti?c 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  par ticular  kinds of  technology-society  and  technology-corporate con?gurations  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  signi?cant  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 signi?cant contribution to the ?elds of sociology, agriculture, biotechnology, and environmental studies, and will be indispensible to scholars, policy makers, rural development agen -cies, farmers, and non-governmental organizations.

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 ?elds of social capital and sustainable develop -ment,  and  to  wider  audiences,  such  as  busi -ness  administration  students,  development experts, and public policy decision-makers.Ann Dale  is Professor in the Science, Technology, and Environment Division at Royal Roads University.

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  Paci?c  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.Thomas  P.

In  dense  homeward  aggregations,  they form  lucrative  targets  for  Canadian  and  United States  ?shermen  who  compete  vigorously  as  the migrations pass southeastward.Beginning late in the 19th century and culminating in  the  1985  Paci?c  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 Paci?c 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 per formance  under  the  dif?cult  economic  and environmental  circumstances  that  have  prevailed in the ?shery since 1985. This incisive work, with its unique historical perspec -tive,  will  be  of  great  interest  to  the  Canadian  and United States ?shing communities affected by the treaty,  to  the  general  public,  politicians,  and  ?sh -eries specialists in both countries concerned with stewardship of natural resources, and to scholars of international law and regional history.

Preece is the most learned person in the area writing today. His knowledge in the ?eld 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 Scienti?c 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 DebateIn this provocative inquiry into the status of animals in human society from the ?fth 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 de?cient. 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  signi?cant  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 signi?cant 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  in?uence  on  the  status  of  animals; and, ?nally, that ?theriophily? ? the notion of animal superiority over humans ? was given greater credence than is commonly recognized.Rod Preece  is Professor of Political Science at Wilfrid Laurier University.

FilsonAs  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 -?ict. 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  pro?tability  and  environmental  sus -tainability,  and  provide  case  studies  that  ana -lyze  farming  systems.  The  book  concludes that  rural  con?ict  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  ?eld  practitioners,  agricultural  and environmental  policy  analysts,  geographers, and  those  scholars  and  students  weary  of the  pervasive  production-oriented  disciplinary focus that typi?es most agricultural research.Glen C.

Over  the  last four  centuries,  the  Bay  has  been  visited  by some of the most famous ?gures 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 car tographic  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.

Michael  Kluckner  goes  well beyond  the  legacy  of  the  dominant  society  and incorporates Aboriginal, Doukhobor, Chinese, and Japanese sites. He demonstrates a ?ne grasp both of the entirety of the province and of its speci?cs, 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  re?ect  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  assor tment  of  historic  imagery, including  old  postcards,  architectural  plans,  and photographs.

On  a  grander  scale  this  approach leads to a broader understanding of more abstract historical themes and of the province?s history and culture.

A  major  contribution  to  Canadian history.??  Margaret  Conrad,  co-author  of  History  of  the Canadian PeoplesIn  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 sacri?ce 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.STUDIES IN CANADIANMILITARY HISTORYOCTOBER 2004  368 pages, 27 b/w photos, 5 tables, 6 x 9?hc $39.95ISBN 0-7748-1108-0Published in association with the Canadian War MuseumRECENTLY RELEASEDCCF Colonialism in Northern SaskatchewanBattling Parish Priests, Bootleggers, and Fur SharksDavid M. QuiringSaskatchewan?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 in?uential newcomers held ?rm 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.

Fighting from the invasion of Sicily in July 1943  to  the  ?nal  victory  in  Europe  in  May  1945, this  native  Vancouverite  earned  a  reputation  as  a fearless  commander  on  the  battle?eld  ?  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  Hof fmeister  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.Douglas  E.

Scott Shef?eld?Shef?eld?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 MuddleDuring 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 i n   t h e   n a t i o n a l   s t o r y.   S h e f ? e l d   e x a m i n e s   h o w 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.

Richardson? L o n g i t u d e   a n d   E m p i re   i s   c o g e n t l y   a n d   q u i t e 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 MuseumNo  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 ?eld guide to  the  voyages,  Longitude  and  Empire   offers  a signi?cant  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  ?xed,  and everything  inside  ?  people,  animals,  plants  and artifacts  ?  was  identi?ed,  collected,  understood, and  assimilated  into  a  single  world  order.  The Paci?c 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.Brian Richardson  is a graduate of the University of Victoria and received a PhD in Political Science from  the  University  of  Hawaii.

Drawing on extensive archival sources and daily newspapers of  the  period,  he  brings  us  into  the  communities of Lethbridge, Alberta, Guelph, Ontario, and Trois-Rivi?res, Quebec, where, though miles and worlds away from the ?ghting 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.

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 AffairsThe Dominion and the Rising Sun  is the ?rst 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  of?ce  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 Paci?c dimension and the tension between  Canada?s  commitment  to  peace  and  its trade with an aggressor.John D.

Whatever the truth of this comment, it is certainly arguable  that  the  empire  was  dismantled  in  such a  ?t.  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  ?ag  in  1964,  the  efforts  to ?nd 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.Phillip Buckner  is Professor Emeritus of History at  the  University  of  New  Brunswick  and  Senior Research Fellow at the University of London.DECEMBER 2004  352 pages, 4 ?gures, 1 table, 6 x 9?  hc $85.00, ISBN 0-7748-0915-9RECENTLY RELEASED NOW IN PAPERBACKGutenberg in ShanghaiChinese Print Capitalism,1876?1937Christopher A.

It ?nds 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 in?uence 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.Christopher A.

As  par t  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 of?cial 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 identi?cation, equal class status, and access to power. Based on extensive ?eldwork in two local areas,  Frontier People   demonstrates  that  the  category  of ?Han immigrants? is profoundly fragmented in terms of generation, ethnic identi?cation, 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.?

Evasdottir In  the  west,  the  idea  of  autonomy  is  often a s s o c i a t e d   w i t h   a   s e n s e   o f   f re e d o m   - -   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  ?ourishes  in  adversity. O b e d i e n t   A u t o n o m y   a n a l y z e s   t h i s   m o d e l , 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-?edged  archeolo -gists in a bureaucracy-saturated environment. T h e   a n a l y s i s   o f   C h i n a ?s   c o m p l e x   s o c i a l 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 PAPERBACKAfter receiving her doctor -ate in Social Anthropology from Harvard University, Erika E.S.
