A compre-hensive assessment of the strengths and weak-nesses of Canadian environmental law, the bookprovides a balanced, critical examination ofCanada?s record, focusing on laws and policiesintended to protect water, air, land, andbiodiversity.Three decades of environmental laws have pro-duced progress in a number of important areas,such as ozone depletion, protected areas, andsome kinds of air and water pollution. However,Canada?s overall record remains poor. In this vitaland timely study, David Boyd explores the reasonswhy some laws and policies foster progress whileothers fail. He ultimately concludes that the rootcause of environmental degradation in industrial-ized nations is excessive consumption of re-sources. Unnatural Law outlines the innovativechanges in laws and policies that Canada mustimplement in order to respond to the ecologicalimperative of living within the Earth?s limits.The struggle for a sustainable future is one of themost daunting challenges facing humanity in thetwenty-first century. Everyone ? academics,lawyers, students, policymakers, and concernedcitizens ? interested in the health of the Canadianand global environments will find Unnatural Law aninvaluable source of information and insight.?[Boyd] reminds us that as biological creatures, werequire clean air, water, soil, energy, andbiodiversity and once that is acknowledged, thepath of legislation is obvious: to protect thoseneeds for all life above anything else. That wouldbe legislation for genuine sustainability.?? Dr. David SuzukiSEPTEMBER416 pages est., 6 x 9?hc $85.00ISBN 0-7748-1048-3pb $29.95ISBN 0-7748-1049-1David R.

Scholars frommany disciplines use the notion of a public?private divide as a means to order knowledgeand better understand the mechanisms thatgovern and shape human behaviour andinstitutions. In legal and socio-legal analysis, thedistinction informs the differences betweenstate and non-state actors and between publicgood and private property.This rich collection of essays explores how thepublic?private divide influences, challenges, andinteracts with law and law reform. Throughvarious case studies, the contributors reflect onthis complex dichotomy?s role in structuring thesocio-legal environment for the personal, social,economic, and governance relationships ofcitizens. They demonstrate that while the splitbetween the public and the private is a usefulway to understand the world, it is always onlyan ideological construct, and as such open tochallenge.The Law Commission of Canada is an independ-ent federal law reform agency that advisesParliament on how to improve and modernizeCanada?s laws.2003208 pages, 6 x 9?hc $85.00ISBN 0-7748-1042-4Murdering HolinessThe Trials of Franz Creffieldand George MitchellJim Phillips and Rosemary GartnerMurdering Holiness explores the story of the?Holy Roller? sect led by Franz Creffield in theearly years of the twentieth century. Creffield,a charismatic, self-styled messiah, taught hisfollowers to forsake the worldliness of materialgoods and their families and seek onlysalvation. As his teachings became moreextreme, the local community reacted bytarring and feathering him and incarcerating hismainly female followers in the asylum andother institutions. Creffield himself wasimprisoned after a conviction for adultery, butrevived the sect shortly after his release.George Mitchell, the brother of two ofCreffield?s female followers, pursued him toSeattle and shot him dead. In a trial that madeheadlines across America, Mitchell wasacquitted, ostensibly on the basis of insanitybut in reality due to the ?unwritten law? thatjustified killing in defence of a female relativewho had been sexually ?wronged.? Mitchellhimself was then murdered two days after hisacquittal by his own sister, Esther, whom hehad claimed to be defending. In a final twist tothis gripping story, Esther did not stand trialfor the murder of her brother but was placed inthe asylum, ultimately taking her own life bypoison a few years later.In this fascinating story, Phillips and Gartnerexplore the relationships among formal andinformal law, gender relations, and religiousrepression.

This book providesboth a superb analysis of the historicaldysfunction of the postcolonial African stategenerally and, more specifically, a probingcritique of the crisis that resulted in the tragiccollapse of Liberia.Using a historical deconstruction and recon-struction of the theories and practice ofinternational law and politics, Ikechi Mgbeojiultimately shows that blame for this endlesscycle of violence must be laid at the feet ofboth the Western powers and African statesthemselves. He further posits that threemeasures ? a reconstructed regime of Africanstatehood, legitimate governance, and reformof the United Nations Security Council ? areimperative for the creation of a stable Africanpolity. In the post-9/11 era, this holistic andmultilateral approach to collective securityremains the world?s best route to peace andsocio-political stability.Collective Insecurity is a vital addition to thestudy of international law and will be of interestto students and practitioners of internationallaw and international relations, and those withan interest in security studies, politics, andAfrican studies.Ikechi Mgbeoji is a professor in the Faculty of Law,University of British Columbia.AUGUST200 pages est., 6 x 9?hc $80.00ISBN 0-7748-1036-X?The book is a significant contributionto the fields of international law andAfrican studies ...

The Ladysmith miners had a reputa-tion for radicalism and militancy and engagedin bitter struggles for union recognition andeconomic justice, most notably the GreatStrike of 1912-14. This strike, one of thelongest and most violent labour disputes inCanadian history, was a watershed in thehistory of the town and the coal industry.This book explains the origins of the 1912-14strike by examining the development of thecoal industry on Vancouver Island, the foundingof Ladysmith, the experience of work andsafety in the mines, the process of politicaland economic mobilization, and how thesefactors contributed to the development ofidentity and community.NOVEMBER288 pages est., 6 x 9?29 b/w illus., 2 mapshc $85.00ISBN 0-7748-0935-3While the Island coal industry and the strikehave been the subject of a number of popularhistories, no scholarly work currently exists.Although the book is driven by current aca-demic debates and archival research, it will beof interest to both historians and a broaderreading public.John R.

His disturbingconclusion is that federal officials knew ofpotential dangers in the harbour before theexplosion, took no corrective action, and keptthe information from the public.

W.H. Seward, theUS secretary of state who brokered thepurchase of Alaska, believed that the acquisi-tion would permit the United States to dominatethe Pacific. In the 1990s, Bill Clinton attemptedto install an American ballistic missile defencesystem on the islands. But for most Americans,prior to the Second World War, the bleak andbarren islands were of far less interest thanthe Philippines.In Stepping Stones to Nowhere, Galen Perrasshows how that changed with the Japaneseoccupation of the western Aleutians, whichclimaxed in the horrendous battle for Attu.Efforts to make the area a major theatreof war rivalling Europe or the South Pacificfoundered, but certainly not for lack of effort.The campaign was unique in its involvementof Britain, the Soviet Union, and Canada.Perras reveals how this clash in the NorthPacific demonstrated serious problems withthe way that American civilian and militarydecision makers sought to incite a globalconflict.Thoroughly researched and accessible, thisbook will be invaluable to military and navalhistorians as well as those with a generalinterest in the history of the Second World War.RECENTLY RELEASEDTony Banham has beenstudying the Battle ofHong Kong for well overa decade.

In thisbook, Tony Banham tells the story of thebattle hour-by-hour, remarkably at the levelof the individual participants. As he namesindividuals and describes their fates, so hepresents a uniquely human view of the fightingand gives a compelling sense of the chaosand cost of battle.More than 10% of Hong Kong?s defenderswere killed in battle; a further 20% died incaptivity. Those who survived seldom spokeof their experiences. Many died young. Thelittle primary material surviving ? written inPOW camps or years after the events ? iscontradictory and muddled.

Gutenberg inShanghai is a brilliant examination of thisprocess. It finds the origins of that revolutionin the country?s printing industries of the lateimperial period and analyzes their subsequentdevelopment in the Republican era.Under diverse social, political, and economicinfluences, this technological and culturalrevolution saw woodblock printing replacedwith Western mechanical processes. In thisbook, which relies on documents previouslyunavailable to both Western and Chineseresearchers, Christopher Reed demonstrateshow Western technology and evolving tradi-tional values resulted in the birth of a uniqueform of print capitalism whose influence onChinese culture was far-reaching and irrevers-ible. His conclusion contests scholarly argu-ments that view China?s technological develop-ment as slowed by culture, or that interpretChinese modernity as mere cultural continuity.A vital re-evaluation of Chinese modernity,Gutenberg in Shanghai will appeal to scholarsof Chinese history. Likewise, it will be enthusi-astically received by specialists in culturalstudies, political science, sociology, the historyof the book, and the anthropology of scienceand technology.A graduate of McGill University and of the universi-ties of Glasgow and of California at Berkeley,Christopher A.

As a result, thecountry has become increasingly difficult tocategorize: How are we to represent today?sJapan effectively, and fairly predict its future?This critical, multi-disciplinary collectionexplores the convergence of past and future incontemporary Japan. Contributors commenton a wide range of economic, socio-cultural,and political trends ? such as the mobilizationof Japanese labour, the burgeoning Ainuidentity movement, and the shifting place ofthe modern woman ? and conclude thatdespite the rapid changes, many of thetraditional facets of Japanese society haveremained intact.

While there are several booksthat look at how journalists do their jobs, andothers that examine the political process, none? until now ? has analyzed the opinions ofjournalists and how the news is reported.Focusing primarily on the political orientationof journalists, Miljan and Cooper investigatethe link between what journalists believe aboutpolitics and how they report political issues.Using data gathered from interviews with over800 Canadians and some 270 journalists, theauthors compare how the attitudes of journal-ists differ from those of the general population,and how the journalists? opinions influence thedaily news. By examining the way they respondto questions on the economy, social issues,and national unity, and comparing theseresponses with how the stories were reportedin Canadian news outlets, the book arrives atthe controversial conclusion that journalists,more so than the owners of the media, are thearchitects of the news, engineering not only itsdrama, but also its ideological thrust.This book should be read by journalists,politicians, academics, and all Canadians whoare concerned about the hidden agendas ofjournalists.Lydia Miljan and Barry Cooper are both professorsof political science.

Instead, Aboriginalidentity is almost always framed in terms ofunique cultural and national traits, while self-government is taken to represent the Aborigi-nal communal desire to protect and promotethose traits. In Shifting Boundaries, TimSchouls challenges this view, arguing that itfosters a woefully incomplete understandingof the complex politics of Aboriginal self-government in Canada.Taking the position that a relational theory ofpluralism offers a fuller interpretation of thesepolitics, Schouls contends that Aboriginal self-government is better understood when an?identification? perspective on Aboriginalidentity is adopted as opposed to a ?cultural?or ?national? one. Using this approach, hedemonstrates that Aboriginal self-governmentis not about preserving cultural and nationaldifferences as goods in and of themselves, butrather about equalizing current imbalances inpower to allow Aboriginal communities andindividuals to construct their identities accord-ing to their own design.In focusing on relational pluralism, ShiftingBoundaries adds an important perspective toexisting theoretical approaches to Aboriginalself-government. It will appeal to academics,students, and policy analysts interested in thepolitics and theory of Aboriginal governance,cultural studies, political theory, nationalismstudies, and constitutional theory.TimSchouls divides his time between the Universityof British Columbia and Capilano College teachingand doing research in Canadian politics, Aboriginalgovernance issues, and political theory.Louise ChappellGendering GovernmentFeminist Engagement with theState in Australia and CanadaWhether working towards equal pay, anti-domestic violence laws, or the creation ofrefuges and childcare centres, women engagewith, and work within, state structures.Gendering Government looks at the extentand quality of this interaction, and comparesfeminist involvement with political institutions inAustralia and Canada.

But, asPaul Nadasdy demonstrates, this premise isseriously flawed because these processesare themselves based on European conceptsof ?knowledge? and ?property,? which arepartially incompatible with First Nations beliefsand practices regarding human-animal-landrelations. In addition, these processes inevita-bly require the development of parallel bureau-cracies within Aboriginal communities, whichreproduce existing power relations, and forceAboriginal peoples to behave and speak inuncharacteristic ways. Thus, land claims andco-management may be helping to underminethe very way of life they are supposed to beprotecting.Hunters and Bureaucrats is based on theauthor?s ethnographic fieldwork in the South-west Yukon.

How do these changes tojob training affect disadvantaged workersand the unemployed?In an insightful and comprehensive discussionof job education in Canada, Cohen and hercontributors pool findings from a five-yearcollaborative study of training programs.Good training programs, they argue, areessential in providing people who arechronically disadvantaged in the workplacewith tools to acquire more secure, better-paying jobs. In the ongoing shift toward aneoliberal economic model, governmentpolicies have engendered a growing relianceon private and market-based trainingschemes. These new training policies haveundermined equity.In an attempt to redress social inequities inthe workplace, the authors examine variouskinds of training programs and recommendspecific policy initiatives to improve accessto these programs. This book will be ofinterest to policy makers, academics, andstudents interested in policy, work, equity,gender, and education.RECENTLY RELEASEDGrowth and Governanceof Canadian UniversitiesAn Insider?s ViewHoward C.

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

In the late 1980s and 1990s,the field of gender studies began to theorizefemale masculinity as a subject of bothhistorical and contemporary significance andto situate this emergence with the fields ofsexuality, gender, and cultural studies.In this groundbreaking study, Jean Noble mapshistorical similarities in fictional, cultural, andrepresentational practices between the periodsof modernism and postmodernism ? from1918 to 1999. Noble looks at nineteenth-century sexology, drama, and trial transcripts,and at late twentieth-century counter-culturaltexts, popular film and documentaries, andtheoretical texts.
