U BCP R E S S . C A  Fight or Pay Soldiers’ Families in the Great War “Our slogan has always been ‘Fight or Pay.’  We call upon the people to enlist or help others enlist. We sometimes say: ‘If you cannot put the “I” into fi ght, put the “pay” into patriotism,’ and that serves as a slogan on any platform.” —Sir Herbert Ames, founder of the Canadian Patriotic Fund Unlike the Second World War, the Great War exists in the collective memory of Canadians as a tragic war. Characterized by the brutality of trench warfare, the First World War is remembered largely for the immense sacrifi ce in life and limb of Canadian soldiers. In Fight or Pay, renowned historian Desmond Morton turns his eye to the stories of those who paid in lieu of fi ghting—the wives, mothers, and families left behind when soldiers went to war. Aware that the recruiting effort would fail if men were forced to choose between their families and the front, the Canadian govern- ment 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 take over their lives and transform them into a middle-class model of frugal self-denial. Meanwhile, the Militia Department took on the task of deciding which dependants a soldier could support. Sud- denly, the State and private philanthropists were managing family decisions that had never been their business before. A pan-Canadian story, Fight or Pay brings to light the lives of thou- sands of valiant women whose sacrifi ces have been overlooked in previous histories of the Great War. It is also an incisive and honest look at the beginnings of a social welfare system that Canadians have come to think of as intrinsic to citizenship. Social and military historians, scholars of gender studies, descendants of First World War families, and anyone with an interest in popular history will fi nd Morton’s tale a rich addition to the landscape of Canadian history. “Fight or Pay is a beautifully written book about the history of a society and its government in wartime. Not only does Morton shed fascinating light on the topic of soldiers’ dependants, but he reveals the much broader implications for the study of gender, class, state power, and race.” —Jonathan Vance, author of Death So Noble: Memory, Meaning, and the First World War “Fight or Pay is a fascinating story of how families managed during the absence of their male relatives, told by a scholar with a deep knowledge of the Great War. A major contribution to Canadian history.” —Margaret Conrad, co-author of History of the Canadian Peoples Desmond Morton is Hiram Mills Professor in the Department of History at McGill University.

The time has come for him to dig up the hatchet and join his paleface brother in his fi ght to make the world safe for the sacred cause of freedom and democracy.” —Winnipeg Free Press, May 1941 During the Second World War, thousands of First Nations people joined in the national crusade to defend freedom and democracy. High rates of Native enlistment and public demonstrations of patriotism encouraged Canadians to re-examine the roles and status of Native people in Canadian society. The Red Man’s on the Warpath explores how wartime symbolism and imagery propelled the “Indian problem” onto the national agenda, and  why assimilation remained the goal of post- war Canadian Indian policy—even though the war required that it be rationalized in new ways. The word “Indian” conjured up a complex frame- work of visual imagery, stereotypes, and assump- tions that enabled English Canadians to explain  R.

Sheffi eld examines how First Nations peo- ple were discussed in both the administrative and public realms. Drawing upon an impressive array of archival records, newspapers, and popular magazines, he tracks continuities and changes in the image of the “Indian” before, during, and immediately after the Second World War. Informed by current academic debates and theoretical perspectives, this book will interest scholars in the fi elds of Native-Newcomer and race relations, war and society, communications studies, and post-Confederation Canadian his- tory.

MILITARY HISTORY WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/MILITARYHISTORY  Roy MacLaren  Canadians Behind Enemy Lines, 1939–1945 With a New Preface During the Second World War, Canadians found themselves behind enemy lines in Europe and Asia. Not all were ill-fated airmen, shot down in the fury of battle. Some were volunteers who served the Allied forces by passing as locals in occupied countries. These men made language and custom their costumes and wove themselves into the social fabric of France, Italy, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Burma, Malaya, and Sarawak. As “citizens” of these countries, they were uniquely positioned to assist resistance groups in sabotage and ambush missions, and to smuggle Allied airmen out of the occupied territories. Quiet heroes of the war, these bold Canadians helped to make the brutal and unrelenting warfare of the underground a potent weapon in the Allied arsenal. Out of print for more than two decades, this best- selling book recognizes the unique contribution of these individuals to the underground war effort in the Second World War. It is also a study of unstint- ing personal courage in the face of overwhelming odds. Military and Canadian historians, veterans, and anyone interested in this fascinating piece of Canada’s past will appreciate MacLaren’s engag- ing, well-researched account. The Honourable Roy MacLaren was a diplomat, businessman, and Member of Parliament. He is the author of four other books on Canadian military and politicial subjects.

Keshen  Saints, Sinners, and Soldiers Canada’s Second World War “An extraordinary look at how Canadians lived, loved, and worked on the home front during the Second World War. His massive research into sources that other historians usually skip over has produced the single best study of rapidly changing social values in a time of great crisis that we have. Absolutely fi rst-rate…” —J.L. Granatstein, author of Canada’s Army:  Waging War and Keeping the Peace It was the “Good War.”  It ended the Depression and Canada’s contribution was nothing less than stellar. But the dark truth was that not all Canadi- ans were saints or soldiers. In this eye-opening and captivating reassessment of Canadian com- mitment to the cause, some disturbing questions come to light. Saints, Sinners, and Soldiers shows how moral and social changes, and the fears they gener- ated, precipitated numerous, and often contra- dictory, legacies in law and society. From labour confl icts, to the black market, to prostitution, and beyond, Keshen acknowledges the underbelly of Canada’s Second World War. Essential reading for both military and social historians, this book will also prove fascinating to anyone interested in the evolution of Canada’s social fabric.

Interweaving historical analysis with vivid de- scriptions of pivotal events from the fi rst siege of Louisbourg in 1745 to the end of the wars with the United States and France in 1815, Julian Gwyn illuminates the complex story of competing interests among the Admiralty, Navy Board, sea offi cers, and government offi cials on both sides of the Atlantic. In a gripping narrative encompassing sea battles, impressments, and privateering, Gwyn brings to life key events and central fi gures. Gwyn’s evocation of people and events, and the scholarship he brings to bear on the subject, make Frigates and Foremasts an authoritative history. Wonderfully readable, it will attract both the serious naval historian and the general reader interested in the “why” and “what” of naval history on North America’s eastern seaboard.

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. An overview of Canada’s initial foray into Pacifi c affairs, it begins with the opening in 1929 of the Canadian legation in Tokyo— Canada’s third such offi ce overseas—and concludes with the outbreak of hostilities in 1941. Primarily a diplo- matic history, the book also explores 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, revealing its important Pacifi c dimension—a fact overlooked by historians until now—as well as the disjunct between Canada’s commit- ment to peace and its trade with an aggressor. Meehan suggests that Canada’s initially benign view of Japan, its reluctance to adopt positions in advance of its Anglo-American allies, and its lucrative Pacifi c trade led to a credibility gap in its policies towards East Asia. The Dominion and the Rising Sun charts Canada’s relationship with Japan, and is essential reading for those interested in Canadian history, interna- tional relations, and Asia-Pacifi c studies.

Drawing on newspaper archives and organiza- tional documents, he examines how farmers near Lethbridge, Alberta, shopkeepers in Guelph, On- tario, and civic workers in Trois-Rivières, Québec took part in local activities that connected their everyday lives to a tumultuous period in history. Many important debates in social and cultural history are addressed, including demonization of enemy aliens, gendered fi elds of wartime philanthropy, state authority and citizenship, and commemoration and social memory. The making of Canada’s home front, Rutherdale argues, was experienced fundamentally through local means. City parades, military send-offs, public school events, women’s war relief efforts, and many other public exercises became the parochial lenses through which a distant war was viewed. Like no other book before it, this work argues that these experiences were the true “realities” of war, and that the old maxim that truth is war’s fi rst victim needs to be understood, even in the international and imperialistic Great War, as a profoundly local phenomenon. Hometown Horizons contributes to a growing body of work on the social and cultural histories of the First World War, and challenges historians to consider the  place of everyday modes of com- munication in forming collective understandings of world events. This history of a war imagined will fi nd an eager readership among social and military historians, cultural studies scholars, and anyone with an interest in wartime Canada.

C A HISTORY WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/HISTORY  Canada and the End of Empire Sir John Seeley once wrote that the British Em- pire was acquired in “a fi t of absence of mind.” Whatever the truth of this comment, it is certainly arguable that the Empire was dismantled in such a fi t. This collection deals with a neglected sub- ject in post-Confederation Canadian history—the implications to Canada and Canadians of British decolonization and the end of empire. Canada and the End of Empire looks at Canadian diplomatic relations with the United Kingdom and the United States, the Suez crisis, the changing economic relationship with Great Britain in the 1950s and 1960s, the role of educational and cultural institutions in maintaining the British connection, the royal tour of 1959,  the decision to adopt a new fl ag in 1964, the efforts to fi nd a formula for repatriating the constitution, the Canadianization of the Royal Canadian Navy, and the attitude of First Nations to the changed nature of the Anglo-Canadian relationship. Historians in  Phillip Buckner, ed. NOVEMBER 352 pages est., 6 x 9” hc $85.00 ISBN 0-7748-0915-9 Commonwealth countries tend to view the end of British rule from a nationalist perspective. Canada and the End of Empire 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, this book will be of interest to historians of the Commonwealth, and to scholars and students interested in the re- lationship between colonialism and nationalism. “A signifi cant contribution to the important fi elds of modern Canadian history and modern British imperial history.” —Jane Samson, Department of History and Classics, University of Alberta Phillip Buckner is Professor Emeritus of History at the University of New Brunswick and Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies at the University of London.  David M. Quiring  CCF Colonialism in Northern Saskatchewan Battling Parish Priests, Bootleggers, and Fur Sharks Often remembered for its humanitarian platform and its pioneering social programs, Saskatch- ewan’s Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) wrought a much less scrutinized legacy in the northern regions of the province during the twenty years it governed. Until the 1940s, churches, fur traders, and infl uential newcomers held fi rm control over Sas- katchewan’s northern region. Following its rise to power in 1944, the CCF undertook aggressive efforts to unseat these traditional powers and to install a new socialist economy and society in largely Aboriginal northern communities. As the CCF’s efforts to modernize and assimilate northern people met with frustration, it was the northern people themselves who inevitably suf- fered from the fallout of this failure. In an elegantly written history that documents the colonial relationship between the CCF and the communities in northern Saskatchewan, David Quiring draws on extensive archival research and oral history to offer a fresh look at the CCF era. This examination will fi nd a welcome audience among historians of northern Canada, Aboriginal scholars, and general readers. David M. Quiring teaches in the Department of History at the University of Saskatchewan.

Hinde  When Coal Was King Ladysmith and the Coal-Mining Industry on Vancouver Island The town of Ladysmith was one of the most important coal-mining communities on Vancouver Island during the early twentieth century. The Ladysmith miners had a reputation for radicalism and militancy and engaged in bitter struggles for union recognition and economic justice, most notably during the Great Strike of 1912-14. This strike, one of the longest and most violent labour disputes in Canadian history, marked a watershed in the history of the town and the coal industry. This book explains the origins of the 1912-14 strike by examining the development of the coal industry on Vancouver Island, the founding of Ladysmith, the experience of work and safety in the mines, the process of political and economic mobilization, and how these factors contributed to the development of identity and community. Unique to this analysis is Hinde’s emphasis on the importance of class, ethnicity, gender, and com- munity in creating the conditions for the mobiliza- tion of the working-class population. Informed by current academic debates, this readable history draws on extensive archival research, and will appeal to historians and others interested in the history of Vancouver Island. John R. Hinde has taught at the University of Victoria and Malaspina University College. His fi rst book, Jacob Burckhardt and the Crisis of Modernity, was awarded the 2001 Wallace K.

Michael Dawson argues that in order to under- stand the roots of the fully-fl edged consumer culture that emerged in Canada after the Second World War, it is necessary to understand the connections between the 1930s, 1940s, and the postwar era. Cultural producers such as tourism promoters and the state infrastructure played important roles in fostering consumer demand, particularly during the Depression, the Second World War, and throughout the postwar era. Dawson draws upon promotional pamphlets, newspapers, advertisements, and fi lms, as well as archival sources regarding government, civic, and international tourism organizations. Central to his book is an examination of the representa- tion of popular imagery and of how aboriginal and British cultures were commodifi ed and marketed to potential tourists. He also looks at the gen- dered aspect of these promotional campaigns, particularly during the 1940s, and challenges earlier interpretations regarding the relationship between tourism and nature in Canada. Historians have tended to focus on either the fi rst wave of consumerism from the 1880s to the 1920s, or else on the era of economic expansion that followed the Second World War. As Dawson shows, the 1930-45 period was an important and dynamic one in the creation of Canadian and British Columbian consumer culture. Michael Dawson’s highly readable and engaging account of the development of the British Colum- bia tourist industry will be welcomed by British Columbian and Canadian historians, as well as other scholars of tourism and consumerism.

C A  The Courts and the Colonies The Litigation of Hutterite Church Disputes The Courts and the Colonies offers a detailed account of a protracted dispute arising within a Hutterite colony in Manitoba, when the Schmiede- leut leaders attempted to force the departure of a group that had been excommunicated but would not leave. This resulted in about a dozen lawsuits in both Canada and the United States between various Hutterite factions and colonies, and placed the issues of shunning, excommuni- cation, legitimacy of leadership, and communal property rights before the secular courts. What is the story behind this extraordinary development in Hutterite history? How did the courts respond, and how did that outside (state) law relate to the traditional inside law of the Hutterites? Utilizing voluminous court records, Esau provides a detailed and fascinating narrative of the pro- longed disputes and litigation history of Hutterite colonies at Lakeside, Oak Bluff, Rock Lake, and Huron. He considers whether the legal action  Alvin J. Esau OCTOBER 416 pages est., 6 x 9” hc $85.00 ISBN 0-7748-1116-1 was consistent with the historic non-resistance of Hutterites or whether it signaled a fundamental change in norms of Anabaptist perspectives on litigation. He examines the past history of Hut- terite litigation, and how the roots of the schism related to controversy over the Schmiedeleut leadership and its alliance with the Bruderhof, a group of Christian communalists living mainly in the Eastern United States. At stake is the nature of freedom of religion in Canada and the extent to which our pluralistic society is prepared to ac- commodate the existence of groups that have an illiberal legal system that may not cohere with the outside legal system of the host society. While this book will be of particular interest to scholars of law and religion, it will also appeal to anyone in Anabaptist studies, sociology, anthro- pology, political theory, and confl ict resolution.

It is the ambiguity of the meanings of property and the tensions that were, and still are, evident in property disputes with which this book is concerned. Despotic Dominion brings together the work of scholars whose study of the evolution of property law in the colonies recognizes the value in locat- ing property law and rights within the broader political, economic, and intellectual contexts of those societies.

As the essays in this book demonstrate, a signifi cant part of the recent explosion in inter- est and speculation about property rights relates historically to the securing of a more reliable cultural context for assessing these claims.

People and Place Historical Infl uences on Legal Culture NOW IN PAPERBACK People and Place demonstrates the fascinating ways in which personality and locale interact to shape the law, and how location infl uences legal cultural history. The essays, by a diverse array of scholars—including legal theorists, historians, and criminologists—examine law through the frame- work of history. They look at the lives of judges and lawyers, rape victims, prostitutes, religious sect leaders, and common criminals to explore how individuals or small groups have been able to make a difference in how law has been understood, applied, and interpreted. The essays allow readers to explore law’s various meanings across communities and time and to develop a more profound aware- ness of the complexity of human society. Accessible to academics, students, and gen- eral readers interested in the formation of law within a social context, this collection offers a compelling perspective on the subtle relationship of people, place, and the law.

C A  Gay Male Pornography An Issue of Sex Discrimination The 2000 case of Little Sisters Book and Art Emporium v. Customs Canada provided Cana- da’s highest court with its fi rst opportunity to consider whether the analysis set out in R. v. Butler—in which the Supreme Court identifi ed pornography as an issue of sex discrimina- tion—applies to pornography intended for a lesbian or gay male audience. The Court held that it did, fi nding that, like heterosexual por- nography, same-sex pornography also violates the sex equality interests of all Canadians. Christopher Kendall supports this fi nding, argu- ing that gay male pornography reinforces those social attitudes that create systemic inequality on the basis of sex and sexual orientation—mi- sogyny and homophobia alike—by sexually conditioning gay men to those attitudes and practices.

Manfredi  Feminist Activism in the Supreme Court Legal Mobilization and the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund Since 1980, the Canadian women’s movement has been an active participant in constitutional politics and Charter litigation. This book, through its focus on the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF), presents a compelling exami- nation of how Canadian feminists became key actors in developing the constitutional doctrine of equality, and how they mobilized that doctrine to support the movement’s policy agenda. In a multitude of areas such as abortion, por- nography, sexual assault, family law, and gay and lesbian rights, LEAF has intervened before the Supreme Court to bring its understanding of equality to bear on legal policy development. This study offers a deft examination of LEAF’s arguments and seeks to understand how they affected the Court’s consideration of the issues. It also contemplates the long-term effects of mobilization and considers the social impact of the legal doctrine that has emerged from LEAF cases. A major contribution to law and society stud- ies, Feminist Activism in the Supreme Court is unparalleled in its analysis of legal mobilization as an effective strategy for social movements. It will be widely read and welcomed by legal scholars, political scientists, lawyers, feminists, and activists. Christopher P. Manfredi is Professor of Political Science at McGill University.

This is best exemplifi ed in the gay male pornography defended in Little Sisters as “liberation” and “central to sexual freedom.” Gay Male Pornography rejects the equality claims of gay male pro-pornography advocates and argues that there is little to be gained from sexualized conformity. To date, no one has taken the position that gay male pornography violates the legal right to sex equality. This book does that and, as such, it will be of value to scholars of law, sociology, and gender studies, as well as to all who have an interest in equality and justice.

Joblessness was viewed as a social problem and the jobless as its unfortunate victims. If governments could not create the right condi- tions for full employment, they were obligated to compensate people who could not fi nd work. While unemployment insurance expanded over several decades to the benefi t of the rights of the unemployed, the mid-1970s saw the fi rst stirrings of a counterattack as the federal gov- ernment’s Keynesian strategy came under siege. Neo-liberalists denounced unemployment insur- ance and other aspects of the welfare state as infl ationary and unproductive. Employment was increasingly thought to be a personal responsibil- ity and the handling of the unemployed was to refl ect a free-market approach. This regressive movement culminated in the 1990s counter- LAW WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/LAW reforms, heralding a major policy shift. The number of unemployed with access to benefi ts was halved during that time. From UI to EI examines the history of Canada’s unemployment insurance system and the rights it grants to the unemployed. The development of the system, its legislation, and related jurispru- dence are viewed through a historical perspec- tive that accounts for the social, political, and economic context. Campeau critically examines the system with emphasis on its more recent transformations. This book will interest profes- sors and students of law, political science, and social work, and anyone concerned with the right of the unemployed to adequate protection. Georges Campeau is a professor in the Faculté de science politique et de droit at the Université du Québec à Montréal. As a lawyer, he has defended the rights of the unemployed for many years. LAW AND SOCIETY SERIES  Roy B. Flemming  Tournament of Appeals Granting Judicial Review in Canada Canada’s Supreme Court decides cases with far-reaching effects on Canadian politics and public policies. But how does the Court choose these cases in the fi rst place? From the several hundred requests for judicial review fi led every year, how and why do the justices pick some cases but not others? Tournament of Appeals investigates the appeal process in Canada and explores how and why certain cases “win” a place on the Court’s agenda and others do not. Comparing the process to a sports tournament, this study raises several vital questions. Is there an elite Supreme Court “bar” that routinely wins the tournament? Do the Court’s rules affect the tournament’s outcomes? Or does winning and losing refl ect the resources of the parties? As players in this tournament, how do the judges play the game and how does it affect their votes to grant or deny judicial review? Flemming offers both a qualitative and quantita- tive explanation of how Canada’s justices grant judicial review. The fi rst of its kind, this innovative study will draw the attention of lawyers, academ- ics, and students in North America as well as in the Commonwealth and European countries where the appeals process in the high courts is similar to that of Canada.

Corporate Governance in Global Capital Markets The recent failures of Enron, WorldCom, and other large, publicly traded corporations have catapulted the issue of corporate governance onto the international stage. In this timely book, Janis Sarra draws together the work of legal scholars and practitioners from across North America to provide a comprehensive analysis of corporate governance issues in global capital markets. This collection explores the theoretical underpin- nings of corporate governance and provides concrete illustrations of different models and their outcomes. While the perspectives of the authors sometimes differ, their common project is to explore different normative conceptions of the corporation in order to contribute to an analysis of global trends in corporate governance. The book measures diverse theoretical perspec- tives against the reality of corporate operations in current capital markets. Relationships both within and outside the fi rm are explored, includ- ing issues of accountability, ethics in decision making, and notions of effi ciency in generation of corporate wealth. Legal scholars and practitioners with an interest in corporations, insolvency, and securities, as well as corporate directors, will welcome this addition to their libraries.

This poses a challenge because of the strong bias of prevailing cultural systems in the region toward the goal of lifting standards of living over achiev- ing ecological sustainability. This book juxtaposes international environmental norms and practices with relevant Asian policies and their applications in key areas. Roda Mushkat examines the fundamental principle of public participation in environmental law-making, as well as the “rights approach,” against the emergence of democratic and human rights norms in the region. The complex relationship between trade and the environment is also discussed in light of the strong regional emphasis on economic growth, trade liberalization, and the aversion to conditionalities. Given regionalization processes in Asia-Pacifi c and elsewhere, this work seeks LAW WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/LAW to establish to what extent such processes have led to the regionalization of international environmental law. International Environmental Law and Asian Val- ues concludes that, although some gaps can be identifi ed between international imperatives and regional responses, “Asian values” have not proved to be an insurmountable barrier to the spread of international environmental legal ideas. On the whole, the region is responding to impulses emanating from the global arena rather than resisting them consciously. The analysis and conclusions of this comprehen- sive and original work will be of considerable interest to scholars of  international law and rela- tions, environmental policy, comparative culture, economic development, and social change. Roda Mushkat is Professor and Head of the Depart- ment of Law at the University of Hong Kong. “Much has been written in the areas of human rights and democracy but less as to how these are impacted by Asian values and even less still about the relevance of these concepts to environ- mental law … This book offers a new and innovative approach to merging a number of topical debates in a way that will be instructive and supportive of the development of environmental law in the Asia Pacifi c region ...

In this fi rst book published on the subject, Marc Ribeiro offers a balanced analysis of this doctrine and its application in the context of the Canadian constitution. Taking as its starting point a cogent analysis of the fundamental concepts of “legality” and the “rule of law,” Limiting Arbitrary Power undertakes a specifi c study of the contents of the vagueness doctrine. Ribeiro presents an in-depth exploration of the courts’ current approach, and suggests how it may be refi ned in the future. In that regard, he proposes techniques for legislative drafting in which certainty could be enhanced without compromising the flexibility required in law. Acknowledging that, to date, the doctrine has yet to have been granted an autonomous status for invalidating legislation, he also examines in detail the possible situations in which vagueness may become applicable under the Charter. An important addition to Canadian law libraries, Limiting Arbitrary Power will be eagerly received by legal professionals, legislators, and scholars of constitutional law and legal theory.

Defi ning Criminal Conduct in Contemporary Society We all have notions of what it means to commit a crime. Rarely, however, do we stop to consider why certain activities and behaviours are deemed criminal and others are not. What Is a Crime? examines how we defi ne criminal conduct in contemporary society, and how we respond to it once it has been identifi ed. Drawing from law, sociology, criminology, and socio-legal studies, this rich collection of essays looks at the processes of defi ning crime, and considers the varied and complex implications of our decisions to criminalize certain unwanted behaviour. Employing various case studies, the contributors refl ect on the social processes that inform defi 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 a broad spectrum of readers concerned with the govern- ance of crime and its control in contemporary society. Students and scholars will fi nd this book invaluable in furthering their understanding of the processes of defi ning crime and criminal behav- iour. It will also appeal to policymakers, criminal justice practitioners, and anyone with a stake in our current approaches to crime.

C A  Ikechi Mgbeoji  Collective Insecurity The Liberian Crisis, Unilateralism, and Global Order Africa’s notorious civil wars and seemingly endless confl icts constitute one of the most intractable threats to global peace and security in the post- Cold War era. This book provides both a superb analysis of the historical dysfunction of the post- colonial African state generally and, more specifi - cally, a probing critique of the crisis that resulted in the tragic collapse of Liberia. Using a historical deconstruction and reconstruc- tion of the theories and practices of international law and politics, Ikechi Mgbeoji ultimately shows that blame for this endless cycle of violence must be laid at the feet of both the Western powers and African states themselves. He further posits that three measures—a reconstructed regime of African statehood, legitimate governance, and reform of the United Nations Security Coun- cil—are imperatives for the creation of a stable African polity. In the post-9/11 era, this holistic and multilateral approach to collective security remains the world’s best route to peace and socio-political stability. Collective Insecurity is a vital addition to the study of international law and will also be of interest to those engaged in security studies, politics, and African studies.

Emotionally seductive, the rhetoric of restorative justice appeals to a desire for a “right relation” among individuals and communities, and offers us a vision of justice that allows for the mutual healing of victim and victim- izer, and with it, a sense of communal repair. Drawing from diverse legal, literary, philosophi- cal, and autobiographical sources, Acorn ques- tions the fundamental assumptions behind that rhetoric: that we can trust wrongdoers’ capacity for meaningful accountability and respectful com- munity, and that we can, in good conscience, de- ploy the idea that healing lies in the (re)encounter between victim and offender, and seduce victims to participate in restorative processes. Essential reading for anyone with an interest in restorative justice, Compulsory Compassion should also be read by scholars and students of criminal justice and legal theory.

Using agro-environmental policy development in France, the United States, and Canada as case studies, Éric Montpetit sets out to investigate the validity of this distrust through careful attention to the performance of the relevant policy networks. He concludes that distrust in policy networks is, for the most part, misplaced because high levels of performance by policy networks are more common than many political analysts and citizens expect. Opposing the tenets of state retrench- ment, his study reveals that providing participation in governance to resourceful interest groups and strong government bureaucracies is an essential component of sound environmental policies for agriculture. A timely contribution to the good governance debate, this book should be required reading for policymakers and politicians, as well as students and scholars of public policy, political science, environmental studies, and government.

Together these essays explore the changing role of borders in a global world. Are borders increasingly irrelevant under conditions of globali- zation, or can a case be made to demonstrate their continuing importance at various levels of spatial activity? Situating itself within a growing border literature, Holding the Line argues that contemporary bor- ders facilitate parallel processes of globalization and localization of political activity. As such, the essays adopt a holistic approach to understand- ing the impact of boundaries on both society and space. They demonstrate that any attempt to create a methodological and conceptual framework for the understanding of boundaries must be concerned with the process of bound- ing, rather than simply the means through which the physical lines of separation are delimited and demarcated. This approach renders the no- tion of a “borderless world” highly problematic because the latter ignores the important and ongoing relationship between the functional role of borders in the bounding process and the sym- bolic role of borders as imagined social, political, and economic constructions embedded within a geographical text. The changing characteristics of political bounda- ries during an era of globalization has become a great focus of interdisciplinary study, and this book will appeal to scholars of political geogra- phy, border studies, and international relations.

Redrawing Local Government Boundaries An International Study of Politics, Procedures, and Decisions Local government boundaries today are under extreme pressure for reform. The global trend toward urbanization has brought with it economic, environmental, social, and regional 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 an ongoing and pressing challenge confronting nations around the globe. The fi rst international comparative study of local boundary reform, this collection presents a sys- tematic examination of the legal and regulatory procedures involved in such municipal restructur- ing. Case studies from the United States, Canada, Spain, Germany, Israel, Korea, China, and South Africa investigate how and why local governments have been enlarged and reduced in number within each country. In each case, four key areas are examined: the geography of the local government boundary problem; the procedures 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. A valuable reference for academics and policy- makers interested in boundary reform, this book will also be of interest to scholars and students of political science, public administration, geog- raphy, urban studies, and planning.

Courtney  Elections Open and competitive elections governed by widely accepted rules and procedures are es- sential to any political system’s legitimacy. This volume, by eminent political scientist John Court- ney, assesses the history and development of fi ve “building blocks” of Canada’s electoral regime: the franchise, electoral districts, voter registra- tion, election machinery, and plurality voting. Arguing that, on balance, Canada’s electoral regime can be judged to be truly democratic, Courtney demonstrates the vast improvements that have been made over the years. Using the recent push for the reform of the plurality vote system as one example, he also examines why certain electoral institutions have been amenable to change and others have not. In a democracy such as Canada’s, it is important for citizens to understand the most essential parts of their electoral system. Elections is de- signed with this goal in mind. A concise analysis of complex issues, it presents reasoned judg- ments on links between electoral institutions and representative democracy, and is an ideal primer for undergraduate students, journalists, politicians, and anyone interested the current state of Canadian democracy.

After all, with the very rare exception of nationwide referendums, Canadians speak collectively only when voting for the people who will be representing 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. Legislatures provides a democratic audit of Canada’s provincial and national representative assemblies. It argues that the problem existing in these bodies is not a lack of talent so much as a lack of institutional freedom. Specifi cally, the problem is largely one of resources and rules.

POLITICS WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/DEMOCRATICAUDIT  William Cross  Political Parties Political parties are a key component of Canadian democracy. They choose our candidates for public offi ce, they decide which policy issues are considered in the legislatures, and they dominate our election campaigns. As a result, a democracy that is participatory, responsive, and inclusive can only be achieved if Canadian political parties share these values and operate in a manner respecting them. This book delves into the history, structure, mechanisms, and roles of Canada’s political parties, and assesses the degree to which Canadians today can rely on political parties as vehicles for grassroots participation. With an emphasis on Canada’s federal parties, Cross examines party membership, candidate recruitment, leadership selection, policy develop- ment, election campaigning, and party fi nancing. Throughout, he maintains a clear focus on how well Canadian parties are serving the Canadian people. A timely overview of political parties, this book will appeal to all those who seek a fuller understand- ing of the Canadian party system.

Representation and Democratic Theory With public confidence in representative institutions dropping to distressing levels, it is time for political theorists to turn their attention to representation and to reconceive its normative foundations and connections to other aspects of a revived public life. This volume investigates theoretical and practical aspects of contemporary political representation in the early twenty-fi rst century. Contributors tackle problematic dimensions of representation head on, while others explore democratic partici- pation and deliberation, multicultural pluralism, contested citizenship, and other background con- ditions of representation. Still others consider the challenges posed to representation by minorities, national boundaries, multinational and federal governance, and cultural and social obstacles to either individual or group autonomy. A crucial supplement to empirical studies of conventional political representation, Rep- resentation and Democratic Theory offers a timely and thought-provoking contribution to contemporary democratic theory. It will be a necessary and welcome addition to the libraries of many political and social scientists. David Laycock is Professor in the Department of Political Science at Simon Fraser University.

An ethic of care is concerned most of all with contextualizing the human condition, being responsive to people’s individual differences through a particular form of engagement, and taking into account the consequences of decisions in terms of relieving burdens, hurt, or suffering.  Although the theory continues to develop, less attention has been paid to its practical implications. To date, the relationship between care ethics and public policy in the Canadian context has not been investigated. Through a series of case studies, this book considers the implications of this ethic for a range of Canadian social policy issues. The author examines how the ethic of care, if properly applied, might change specifi c policies, and what lessons might be learned about the theory of care from such a focused application. Her examples demonstrate the extent to which a care orientation differs from a justice orientation, and provide an alterna- tive normative framework for interpreting, understanding, and evaluating social policy. Social Policy and the Ethic of Care bridges the gap between theoretical and public policy analysis in revealing why Canadian social policy is lacking and how it could be made more effective and robust by the inclusion of an ethic of care. This interdisciplinary text is essential reading for scholars and students of gender or feminist studies, philosophy, political theory, and social policy.

If I Had a Hammer Retraining That Really Works This is a book full of heroes: poor women— many of whom are single mothers, Aborigi- nal, or both—who have defi ed the odds to become apprenticing carpenters. To do so they have juggled childcare schedules, left abusive partners, kicked deadly drug habits, and have undergone intensive retraining. Over three years Margaret Hillyard Little interviewed thirty women who participated in the program along with their instructors. The program was guided by feminist principles and included an innovative co-op construction business. Little’s rich and complex analysis illuminates the lives of women who struggle with poverty, sexism, and racism as they attempt to gain skills, qualifi cations, confi - dence, and self-esteem. Retraining scholarship has, for the most part, focused on working class men and women, with virtually no attention paid to low- income women. And welfare literature has, to some extent, accepted the limitations of neo- liberal governments and focused on workfare and other welfare policies. Little talks boldly about retraining as an effective and important strategy for welfare reform. If I Had a Hammer fi lls a gap in the current literature on retraining and welfare policy and makes an important contribution to social policy that transcends its Canadian context. Little writes in an accessible manner that will engage the general public, as well as students and scholars of social work, politics, women’s studies, native studies, labour stud- ies, and economics.

Increasingly, however, much of the responsibility for community-based prosperity and survival is falling to communities themselves. This book is drawn from a three-year participatory research project with four communities in British Columbia: two municipalities and two Aboriginal communities. The fi rst part of the book examines historical and contemporary forces of restructur- ing, linking the development of rural communities with the legacy of resource development and Abo- riginal marginalization across the province. The second part of the book presents the theoretical and practical dynamics of the community eco- nomic development (CED) process and outlines a variety of strategies communities can initiate to diversify their local economies. Second Growth advances understanding of lo- cal development by addressing two important defi ciencies in the CED literature. First, CED is a rapidly expanding fi eld that requires enhanced theoretical direction and historical analysis. Sec- ond, there is a need for systematic case study analyses of CED strategies in rural, small-town conditions. As communities struggle to confront complex forces of change, sound theoretical frameworks and tested best practices are impor- tant tools in facilitating the prospects for a sec- ond growth in rural and small-town communities. The book will appeal to educators and students of rural and economic geography, policymakers, and citizens who wish to better understand the transformations taking place across the rural landscape.

The Politics of Canadian Communities Popular rhetoric suggests that the twenty-fi rst century has ushered in an era of homogeneity. Urbanization, globalization, amalgamation, media conglomeration, and technological convergence have become familiar terms to us—terms coined to refl ect the effect of the complex forces at work in communities across the country. Given such overwhelming pressures, how are com- munities able to make decisions about their own environment? To what extent can they govern themselves? This stimulating book considers questions of infl uence and power within local institutions, using numerous illustrations from municipali- ties across Canada.  The challenges to local governance are examined from a wide array of perspectives; communities large and small from Iqaluit to Toronto are offered as examples. In an original approach to the subject, McAllister pays particular attention to smaller and more remote cities of Canada. Governing Ourselves? covers traditional topics related to Canadian local government structures, institutions, and intergovernmental relations. At the same time, it reaches more broadly into other areas of inquiry that are relevant to geography, urban planning, environmental studies, public ad- ministration, sociology, and Canadian studies.

C A  Shaped by the West Wind Nature and History in Georgian Bay Along the east shore of Ontario’s Georgian Bay lie the Thirty Thousand Islands, a granite archipelago scarred by glaciers, where the white pines cling to the ancient rock, twisted and bent by the west wind: a symbol of a region where human history has been shaped by the natural environment. Over the last four centuries, the Bay has been visited by some of the most famous fi 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. Claire Campbell draws from recent work in cultural history, landscape stud- ies in geography and art history, and environmental history to explore what happens when external agendas confront local realities—a story central to the Canadian experience. Explorers, fi shermen, artists, and park planners all were forced to respond to the unique contours of this inland sea; their encounters defi ned a regional identity even as they constructed a popular image for the Bay in the national imagination. Beginning with a revealing analysis of the cartographic history of the Bay, Campbell proceeds to examine changing cultural representations of land- scape over time, shifts between resource development and recreational use, recurring motifs of water and rock in landscape design and representa- tion, changing memories of place, and the environmental politics of place read through debates about resource management and parks. Campbell investigates the relationship between landscape, culture, and regional identity, and presents a case study in modern environmental thought. Each chapter presents a different type of encounter—different ways in which people approached and interacted with the Bay. She incor- porates a wide variety of sources, including art and literature, maps and survey journals, cottage architecture and boat design, government and park archives, tourism brochures, and oral interviews. This is not a narrowly conceived local history but a focused argument about how places take on shifting cultural meanings over time. The author argues that the environment of Georgian Bay is not simply an imagined geography but has been created through an active engagement between cultural readings and physical circumstances. Shaped by the West Wind speaks to a wide variety of disciplines including geography, art and design, literary criticism, environmental studies, and public history. It will appeal to anyone interested in the environmental dimensions of Canadian history.

In this major new work, esteemed fi sheries expert Thomas P. Quinn distills from the vast scientifi c literature the essential information on the behaviour and ecology of Pacifi c salmon, including steelhead and cutthroat trout. Unlike other books that examine only selected life stages, habitats, or species, this book—richly illustrated with beautiful photographs and original artwork—thoroughly covers the complete life cycle, emphasizing common themes and differences among the various species of salmon. Representing the range of species and geographic regions, Quinn includes examples from classic studies by pioneers of salmon biology and from the most current research in order to illustrate the important features of salmon life history and behaviour and the complex physical, biological, and human factors that affect them. He introduces salmon and trout as a group, with a brief description of each species, and compares them to other fi shes. 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. The Behavior and Ecology of Pacifi c Salmon and Trout explains the patterns of mate choice, the competition for nest sites, and the fate of the salmon after their death. It describes the lives of offspring during the months they spend incubating in gravel, growing in fresh water, and migrating out to sea to mature. Quinn emphasizes the importance of salmon to humans and natural ecosystems and the need to integrate sound biology into conservation efforts. This thorough, up-to-date survey should be on the shelf of everyone with a professional or personal interest in Pacifi c salmon and trout. Written in a technically accurate but engaging style, it will appeal to a wide range of readers, including students, anglers, biologists, conservationists, legislators, and armchair naturalists. “No book on salmon and salmon ecosystems is as well integrated or as up-to-date as this one. Thomas Quinn has brought together a wealth of information on salmon behaviour, life history, and ecology.” —Peter Bisson, Pacifi c Northwest Research Station, US Forest Service Thomas P.

Mike Carr  Bioregionalism and Civil Society Democratic Challenges to Corporate Globalism Bioregionalism and Civil Society addresses the urgent need for sustainability in industrialized societies. The book explores the bioregional movement in the US, Canada, and Mexico, exam- ining its vision, values, strategies, and tools for building sustainable societies. Bioregionalism is a philosophy with values and practices that attempt to meld issues of social and economic justice and sustainability with cultural, ecological, and spiritual concerns. Further, bioregional efforts at democratic social and cultural change take place primarily in the sphere of civil society. Practically, Carr argues for bioregionalism as a place-specifi c, community movement that can stand in diverse opposition to the homogenizing trends of corporate globalization. Theoretically, the author seeks lessons for civil society-based social theory and strategy. Conventional civil soci- ety theory from Europe proposes a dual strategy of developing strong horizontal communicative action among civic associations and networks as the basis for strategic vertical campaigns to democratize both state and market sectors. However, this theory offers no ecological or cultural critique of consumerism. By contrast, Carr integrates both social and natural ecologies in a civil society theory that incorporates lessons about consumption and cultural transformation from bioregional practice. Carr’s argument that bioregional values and community-building tools support a diverse, democratic, socially just civil society that re- spects and cares for the natural world makes a signifi cant contribution to the fi eld of green political science, social change theory, and environmental thought.

Intensive Agriculture and Sustainability A Farming Systems Analysis As globalization restructures agriculture and rural communities, the impacts of increasingly indus- trialized farming make interdisciplinary analyses of the linkages among the social, environmental, and economic aspects of farming ever more vital. This collection analyzes the reasons for the public’s scrutiny of intensive agriculture and the prospects for sustainable farming now that concerns are mounting about food quality, ma- nure runoff, greenhouse gases, extra-label use of antibiotics, pesticide use, and rural confl ict. Intensive Agriculture and Sustainability outlines the advantages of Farming Systems Analysis for understanding the implications of modern, intensive agriculture. This book describes some of the major environmental and social problems connected with intensive farming; outlines a framework for analyzing its sustainability; dis- cusses key linkages among the environmental, economic, and social indicators; outlines model- ling trade-offs between profi tability and environ- mental sustainability; and then analyzes various farming systems using case studies. The authors conclude that rural confl ict and gov- ernment regulation are likely to continue unless the public joins with farmers to help fund steward- ship practices and stabilize farm incomes. This book will appeal to fi eld practitioners, agricultural and environmental policy analysts, geographers, and those scholars and students who are tired of the pervasive production-oriented disciplinary focus that typifi es most agricultural research.

This Elusive Land Women and the Canadian Environment This Elusive Land introduces readers to women’s perceptions and experiences of the Canadian nat- ural environment. This multidisciplinary anthology discusses the ways in which women integrate the social and biophysical settings of their lives, featuring a range of contexts and issues in which gender mediates, inspires, and informs a sense of belonging to and in this land. In particular, the historical association of women with “domestic” nature is challenged by the investigation of women’s lives in a broad range of environments. The collection begins with an introduction to literatures on women and the environment, and to Canada within ecological feminist conversa- tions. The fi rst section discusses the invisibility of women in traditional accounts of Canada’s exploration and settlement, pointing to the liter- ary, historical, and geographic signifi cance of women’s experiences in a variety of landscapes. Section two develops the ways in which the natural environment is a source of social and economic livelihood, with particular emphasis on fi shery, forestry, agriculture, and parks. The third section explores environmental politics through a feminist perspective. The book concludes with a discussion of new directions for a culturally and ecologically diverse Canadian environment. This book contributes to women’s studies through its environmental focus, informs environmental studies with a range of feminist perspectives, and complements Canadian studies by integrating dis- ciplinary perspectives of the Canadian experience from the humanities and social sciences.

Masculinities without Men? Female Masculinity in Twentieth-Century Fictions  Jean Bobby Noble In the late twentieth century, the fi eld of gender studies began to theorize female masculinity as a subject of both historical and contemporary signifi cance and to situate it within the fi elds of sexuality, gender, and cultural studies. This groundbreaking study maps historical simi- larities in fi ctional, cultural, and representational practices from 1918 to 1999. Noble looks at nineteenth-century sexology, drama, and trial transcripts, and at late twentieth-century counter- cultural texts, popular fi lm, documentaries, and theoretical texts. Arguing that the masculine female fi gure which appears in late-twentieth- century culture and fi ction has much in common with that of the late nineteenth century, Noble illustrates the ways in which both are represented through the same types of narratives, structures, and thematic techniques. Among the fi ctions ana- lyzed are: Radclyffe Hall’s The Well of Loneliness, Leslie Feinberg’s Stone Butch Blues, the fi lm Boys Don’t Cry, and Rose Tremain’s Sacred Country, a text that has never before been studied within the context of female masculinity. Of interest to scholars and students with an in- terest in sexuality and gender studies, this book also makes a vital contribution to both literary criticism and cultural studies.

Yet images of the region are within easy reach, in magazine racks, on our coffee tables, and on television, computer, and movie screens. In Northern Exposures, Peter Geller uncovers the history behind these popular conceptions of the Canadian North. This book examines the photographic and fi lm practice of the Canadian government, the Anglican Church of Canada, and the Hudson’s Bay Company, the three major colonial institutions involved in the arctic and sub-arctic. In the fi rst half of the twentieth century, visual representations of the region were widely circulated in offi cial publications and presented in fi lm shows and lantern slide lectures. Focusing on the work of prominent and prolifi c northern imagemak- ers, including federal government special investigator Major Lach- lan T. Burwash, fi rst Bishop of the Arctic Archibald Lang Fleming, Beaver magazine editor and publicity expert Douglas McKay, and photographer-fi lmmaker-author Richard Finnie, this book engages in a contextual approach to “reading” images, analyzing the inter- related aspects of production, circulation, and reception. Geller reveals the varied ways in which taking and displaying pictures of northern people and places contributed to the extension of control over the northern reaches of the Canadian nation. Northern Exposures contributes to understandings of twentieth- century visual culture and the relationship between photographic ways of seeing and the expansion of colonial power, while raising important questions about the role of visual representation in un- derstanding the past. It will be of interest to those concerned with Canadian and cultural history, Northern and Aboriginal studies, fi lm and communication, art history, anthropology, and visual culture.  Peter Geller “Northern Exposures makes a very signifi cant contribution to the fi eld. Its important subject—how southern attitudes towards the North have been manipulated—has not been previously tackled, and Geller’s scholarship is very sound indeed.” —William Barr, Arctic Institute of North America Peter Geller lives and teaches in northern Manitoba and is currently a member of the University College of the North Implementation Team.

Aboriginal Conditions Research as a Foundation for Public Policy What role does social science research play in public policy decisions on Aboriginal issues? How can policymakers, Aboriginal organizations, and social scientists collaborate to best serve Aboriginal communities and the policymaking processes that affect them? Aimed at three main constituencies—Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal social scientists, government and Aboriginal policymakers, and Aboriginal communities—Aboriginal Conditions has mul- tiple purposes. First, it presents fi ndings from recent research, with the goal of advancing the research agenda and stimulating positive social development. Second, it encourages greater links between the social scientifi c and external re- search communities and demonstrates the kind of research needed as a foundation for public policy. Finally, it acts as a guide to research methods for Aboriginal communities and organizations, and promotes cooperation between researchers and Aboriginal peoples in an effort to ensure that research decisions serve both groups equally. A vital addition to public policy and Native studies, Aboriginal Conditions will be welcomed by social scientists, policymakers, and academics working in these fi elds. Jerry P.

C A NATIVE STUDIES WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/NATIVESTUDIES  Our Box Was Full An Ethnography for the Delgamuukw Plaintiffs For the Gitksan and Witsuwit’en peoples of northwest British Columbia, the land is invested with meaning that goes beyond simple notions of property or sustenance. Considered both a food box and a storage box of history and wealth, the land plays a central role in their culture, survival, history, and identity. In Our Box Was Full, Richard Daly explores the centrality of this notion in the determination of Aboriginal rights with particular reference to the landmark Delgamuukw case that occupied the British Columbia courts from 1987 to 1997. Called as an expert witness for the Aboriginal plaintiffs, Daly, an anthropologist, was charged with helping the Gitksan and Witsutwit’en to “prove they existed,” and to make the case for Aboriginal self-governance. In order to do this, Daly spent several years documenting their in- stitutions, system of production and exchange, dispute settlement, and proprietorship before  Richard Daly NOVEMBER 394 pages est., 6 x 9” 39 b/w illus. hc $85.00 ISBN 0-7748-1074-2 Pax Britannica and colonization. His conclu- sions, which were originally rejected by Justice MacEachern, 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 fi eld of forager studies, and emphasizes the kinship and gift exchange features that pervade these societies even today.

Catherine Bell and  David Kahane, eds.  Intercultural Dispute Resolution in Aboriginal Contexts Recently, there has been a growing interest in alternative dispute resolution (ADR), as scholars and practitioners seek more effective, context- sensitive approaches to confl ict. Where formerly confl ict was tackled and “resolved” in formal legal settings and with an adversarial spirit, more conciliatory approaches are now gaining favour. These new methods are proving especially ap- propriate in intercultural contexts, particularly for Aboriginal land claims, self-government, and community-based disputes. The essays collected here provide a balanced view of ADR, exploring its opportunities and ef- fectiveness alongside its challenges and limits. International in scope, they contain examples of efforts (some successful, some not) at dispute resolution involving Inuit and Arctic peoples, Dene, Gitksan and Witsuwit’en, Tsuu T’ina, Cree, Metis, Navajo, Maori, Aboriginal Australians, and Torres Strait Islanders. They have been written by theorists and practitioners, and by Aboriginals as well as non-Aboriginals. This book will appeal to students and scholars of Aboriginal law and alternative dispute resolution, legal and political theorists, dispute resolution practitioners, and anyone involved in struggles around land claims, treaty, and self-government agreements in Canada or abroad.

Richard Atleo)  Tsawalk A Nuu-chah-nulth Worldview RECENTLY RELEASED Western philosophy has long held scientifi c ration- alism in a place of honour. Reason has become steadily distanced from the metaphysical aspects of existence, such as spirit, faith, and intuition. In Tsawalk, hereditary chief Umeek introduces us to an alternative, indigenous worldview—an ontol- ogy drawn from Nuu-chah-nulth origin stories. Umeek develops a theory of “Tsawalk,” meaning “one,” which views existence as an integrated and orderly whole, and recognizes the intrinsic relationship between the physical and spiritual realms. By retelling and analyzing Native origin stories, Umeek demonstrates how Tsawalk pro- vides a viable theoretical alternative that  comple- ments and expands the view of reality presented by Western science. Tsawalk, he argues, allows Western and indigenous views to be combined in order to advance our understanding of the universe. In addition, he shows how various fun- damental 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, anthro- pology, and philosophy, Tsawalk offers a revital- izing and thoughtful complement to Western scientifi c worldviews. Umeek (E.

A non-literate Qwiqwasutinuxw noblewoman, she wove her nar- ratives from myths, chants, historical accounts, and personal reminiscences. Paddling to Where I Stand is her fi rst-hand account of the most signifi cant period of change she and her people experienced since fi rst contact, and her memoirs fl 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 tra- dition, the foundations and the enduring pulse of her living culture. She contributes to our understanding of several traditional practices, including pre-arranged marriages and the tradi- tional potlatch ceremonies. She also shows how a First Nations woman managed to quietly fulfi ll her role as a noble matriarch in her ever-chang- ing society, thus providing a role model for those who came after her.

This language is one of the twenty-three languages that belong to the Salish Family. It is spoken in three distinct forms: Upriver Halq’eméylem or Halkomelem, by the Stó:lō of the Fraser Valley; Down- river h;∫œ;mí∫;µ, of which Musqueam is the only surviving representative; and Island Hul’q’umin’um’, spoken by the Nanaimo and Cowichan of Vancouver Island. Wayne Suttles worked with knowledgeable older peo- ple, eliciting traditional stories, personal narratives, and ethnographic accounts. The grammar provides detailed coverage of phonology, morphology, and syntax, illustrated by numerous sentences selected for their cultural relevance, providing insight into tradi- tional practices, social relations, and sense of humour. There are also chapters on kinship and on space and time as well as fi ve texts and appendices giving an index of grammatical elements, names of places and peoples, and the history of work on h;∫œ;mí∫;µ and its related dialects. It is written using the terms of traditional grammar as much as possible, without following a particular theoretical perspective. This monumental work is perhaps the fullest account of any Salish language. It will be welcomed by lin- guists, anthropologists, and the Musqueam people.

C A  Tim Schouls  Shifting Boundaries Aboriginal Identity, Pluralist Theory, and the Politics of Self-Government Canada is often called a pluralist state, but few commentators view Aboriginal self- government from the perspective of political pluralism. Instead, Aboriginal identity is framed in terms of cultural and national traits, while self-government is taken to represent an Aboriginal desire to protect those traits. Shifting Boundaries challenges this view, arguing that it fosters a woefully incomplete understanding of the politics of self-government. Using relational pluralism as a theoretical lens, Schouls contends that Aboriginal self- government is better understood when an “identifi cation” perspective is adopted instead of a “cultural” or “national” one. He shows that self-government is not about preserving cultural and national differences as goods in and of themselves, but rather is about equalizing current imbalances in power to allow Aboriginal peoples to construct their own identities. Shifting Boundaries adds an important per- spective to existing theoretical approaches to Aboriginal self-government. It will appeal to academics, students, and policy analysts interested in Aboriginal governance, cultural studies, political theory, nationalism studies, and constitutional theory. Tim Schouls divides his time between the University of British Columbia and Capilano College, teaching and doing research in Cana- dian politics, Aboriginal governance issues, and political theory.

This book challenges this premise, arguing that co-management and land claims processes, based as they are on European concepts of “knowledge” and “property,” are in many ways incompatible with First Nations beliefs and practices regarding human-animal-land relations. To participate effectively in these processes, Aboriginal peoples have had to develop bureaucracies that parallel those of the governments with which they must deal. These bureaucracies reproduce existing pow- er relations and compel Aboriginal peoples to speak and act in uncharacteristic ways. As a result, Nadasdy argues, land claims and co-management may be working to under- mine the very way of life they are supposed to protect. Based on the author’s fi eldwork in Burwash Landing, a village of seventy people, most of whom are members of the Kluane First Nation, this book is a revealing exploration of how land claims and co-management, as aspects of an evolving relationship between the Kluane First Nation and the state, are af- fecting Kluane people and their way of life.

ANTHROPOLOGY WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/ANTHROPOLOGY  Imagining Difference Legend, Curse, and Spectacle in a Canadian Mining Town Imagining Difference is an ethnography about historical and contemporary ideas of human difference expressed by residents of Fernie, BC—a coal-mining town transforming into an international ski resort. Focusing on diverse ex- periences of people from the European diaspora, Robertson analyzes expressions of difference from the multiple locations of age, ethnicity, gender, class, and religion. Her starting point is a popular local legend about an indigenous curse cast on the valley and its residents in the nineteenth century. Successive interpretations of the story reveal a complicated landscape of memory and silence, mapping out offi cial and contested histories, social and scientifi c theories as well as the edicts of politi- cal discourse. Cursing becomes a metaphor for discursive power resonating in political, popular, and cultural contexts, transmitting ideas of differ- ence across generations and geographies.  Leslie A.

In Negoti- ated Memory, Rak examines the ways in which autobiographical strategies have been employed by the Doukhobors in order to retell and reclaim their own history. Drawing from oral interviews, court docu- ments, government reports, prison diaries, and newspapers, Rak demonstrates how the Doukhobors employed both “classic” and alter- native forms of autobiography to communicate their views about communal living, vegetarian- ism, 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 subjectiv- ity, autobiography, and identity, and shows how Doukhobor autobiographical discourse forms a series of ongoing negotiations for identity and collective survival which at times is successful in gaining visibility within dominant discourses of the subject, and at times is not. An innovative study, Negotiated Memory will appeal to those interested in autobiography studies, historians, literary critics, and students and scholars of Canadian cultural studies.

Storck  Journey to the Ice Age Discovering an Ancient World At the end of the Ice Age, small groups of hunter-gatherers crossed from Siberia to Alaska and opened the last chapter in the hu- man settlement of the earth. Many left little or no trace. But the Early Paleo-Indians exploded suddenly on the archaeological record about 11,500 years ago and expanded rapidly throughout North America. In this book, archaeologist and curator Peter Storck focuses on the challenges faced by the Early Paleo-Indians of northeastern North America. A revealing, autobiographical ac- count, Journey to the Ice Age is at once a captivating record of Storck’s archaeological discoveries, as well as an introduction to the practice, challenges, and spirit of archaeol- ogy. Designed to take readers on their own journey to the Ice Age, this book includes a guided tour across ancient beaches, through glacially scoured valleys, and up into formerly remote highlands—places evocative of another geo- logical epoch and which contain hidden traces of Southern Ontario’s, and Canada’s, found- ing peoples. Of interest to both professional and amateur, student and teacher, specialist and novice, this personal, often evocative, account is bound to satisfy anyone who has ever yearned to ask an archaeologist: How do you know where to dig?

Clark Over the last fi fty years, Canadian universities have experienced remarkable change. The explo- sion of a so-called “knowledge-based” economy, increasing corporate presence and funding on campus, and the unprecedented rise in enrol- ment, among other factors, have all played signifi cant roles in the shaping of the modern Canadian university. In this thoughtful book, Clark considers how such changes to growth and governance have altered the nature of the institution itself. Tracing the development of the university from the end of the Second World War through the seismic changes in the 1960s and 70s, he argues that while Canadian universities made remarkable accomplishments during this period, they were ill prepared for the fi nancial constraints of the 1980s and early 1990s. As a result, they were left in a state of institutional paralysis that has hindered their ability to adapt to the needs of a changing society. Comparing the present state of Canada’s universities to those of other countries, Clark concludes that Canadian governments have been far less willing to legislate changes than their Anglophone counterparts. Education and cultural historians, university administrators, government policymakers, and those with a stake in education will welcome this work by one of Canada’s most respected university administrators and educators.

Flath  The Cult of Happiness Nianhua, Art, and History in Rural North China This interdisciplinary study brings history and art together in a defi nitive discussion of the Chinese woodblock print form of nianhua (literally “New Year pictures”). It is also an extraordinary account of the cultural life of rural North China during the late nineteenth to mid-twentieth century. Beginning with an overview of nianhua production, Flath argues that rural China was embedded in a highly developed print culture. Through an analy- sis of the role of nianhua in the home, and later in commercial and political theatres, the author considers the relationship of the prints to the social, cultural, and political milieu of North China from the late Qing dynasty to the early 1950s. Using nianhua as historical documents, he offers an original reconstruction of popular conceptions of domesticity, morality, gender, society, and modernity. He concludes with an examination of how communist authorities conscripted and transformed the nianhua genre for use as propa- ganda in the 1940s and early 1950s. The Cult of Happiness is among the fi rst studies in any fi eld to treat folk art and folk print as his- torical text. As such, this richly illustrated volume will appeal to a wide range of scholars in Asian studies, history, art history, folklore, and print, as well as anyone having a passion for the creativity and culture of rural society.

Images in Asian Religions Texts and Contexts The study of images in Asian religions has tended to emphasize the centrality of image worship in both Hinduism and Buddhism. Little attention has been paid, however, to arguments against image worship in these religious traditions. This volume offers a comprehensive look at the role of images in Asian religions, and examines aspects of image worship that have only begun to be studied. Bringing together anthropologists, art histo- rians, and scholars of religion with interests in India, China, Japan, and Southeast Asia, Im- ages in Asian Religions addresses the complex, fl uid, and contested nature of the religious image, the reception of images within the intellectual culture of Hinduism and Buddhism, and the im- portance of historical and cultural context. The result demonstrates the range of debate over image worship, and expands our appreciation to include a wide array of objects that serve as supports of divine presence. Of primary interest to scholars of Asian religions, this book will also appeal to art historians, anthro- pologists, semioticians, and students of religion who concern themselves with images, icons, and material culture.

Reed  Gutenberg in Shanghai Chinese Print Capitalism, 1876-1937 RECENTLY RELEASED In the mid-1910s, what historians call the “Golden Age of Chinese Capitalism” began, accompanied by a technological transformation that included the drastic expansion of modern printing— China’s “Gutenberg revolution.” Gutenberg in Shanghai is a brilliant examination of this proc- ess. It fi nds the origins of that revolution in the country’s printing industries of the late imperial period and analyzes their subsequent develop- ment in the Republican era. Under diverse social, political, and economic in- fl uences, this technological and cultural revolution saw woodblock printing replaced with Western mechanical processes. This book, which relies on documents previously unavailable to both Western and Chinese researchers, demonstrates how Western technology and evolving traditional values resulted in the birth of a unique form of print capitalism whose infl uence on Chinese culture was far-reaching and irreversible. Its con- clusion contests scholarly arguments that view China’s technological development as slowed by culture, or that interpret Chinese modernity as mere cultural continuity. Christopher A.

Roy’s latest book, The Orien- tal Question, continues her study into why British Columbians—and many Canadians from outside the province—were historically so opposed to Asian immigration. Drawing on contemporary press and government reports and individual correspondence and memoirs, Roy shows how British Columbians con- solidated a “white man’s province” from 1914 to 1941 by securing a virtual end to Asian immigration and placing stringent legal re- strictions on Asian competition in the major industries of lumber and fishing. While its emphasis is on political action and politicians, the book also examines the popular pressure for such practices and gives some attention to the reactions of those most affected: the province’s Chinese and Japanese residents. The Oriental Question is a critical investigation of a troubling period in Canadian history. It will be of vital interest to scholars of British Columbian and Canadian history and politics and of Asian, diaspora, ethnicity, and immigra- tion studies. Patricia E.

Roy  Gender and Change in Hong Kong Globalization, Postcolonialism, and Chinese Patriarchy  Eliza W.Y. Lee, ed. The 1980s and 1990s represent a critical his- torical juncture for Hong Kong, as it underwent important social, political, and economic transfor- mations. This period of transition, during which the state worked to redefi ne itself, signifi cantly altered the role and status of Hong Kong women. Colonial modernity, which arose through the integration of the colonial state, the capitalist economy, and the Hong Kong Chinese society, proved favourable for some women but also had adverse consequences for others. Gender and Change in Hong Kong analyzes women’s changing identities and agencies amidst the complex interaction of three im- portant forces, namely, globalization, post- colonialism, and Chinese patriarchy. The chapters examine the issues from a number of perspectives to consider legal changes, politi- cal participation, the situation of working-class and professional women, sexuality, religion, and international migration. This incisive volume will appeal to a wide range of scholars and students in gender and women’s studies, postcolonial ism, globalization, and Asian studies. Eliza W.Y. Lee is Associate Professor in the Depart- ment of Government and Public Administration at The Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Evasdottir  Obedient Autonomy Chinese Intellectuals and the Achievement of Orderly Life This original anthropological study explores a type of “obedient” autonomy that blossoms as more rules are imposed. Obedient Autonomy analyzes this model, and explains its precepts by examining the highly organized discipline of archaeology in China. The book follows Chinese students as they become archaeologists. Often required to travel in teams to the countryside, archaeologists are obliged to overcome divisions among them- selves, between themselves and their peasant- workers, and between themselves and bureau- cratic offi cials. This analysis reveals how these interactions provide teachers of archaeology with examples used to foster obedient autonomy in their students. Moreover, it demonstrates how this form of autonomy enables persons to order and control their future careers in what appears to be a disorderly and uncertain world. A masterly contextualization of archaeology in China, Obedient Autonomy uncovers the moral, ethical, political, and economic underpinnings of the Chinese social structure. It will be accessible to students of anthropology, social theorists of science, philosophers, gender theorists, and students of Chinese society. Erika E.S. Evasdottir received her doctorate in Social Anthropology from Harvard University, and was Killam Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of British Colum- bia. She currently studies law at Columbia University with a specialization in Chinese legal studies.
