  UBC Press SPRING 2006 3ORDER FROM uniPRESSES: 1 877 864 8477 The Big Red Machine How the Liberal Party Dominates Canadian Politics Stephen Clarkson AVAILABLE 352 pages, 6 x 9” 4 figures, 22 tables ISBN 0-7748-1196-X, pb $24.95 Politics The Liberal Party of Canada has governed for seventy-eight of the last 110 years. This astounding record makes the Liberals one of the most successful political parties in the democratic world. Today, however, the Liberals are on the ropes. In The Big Red Machine, astute Liberal observer Stephen Clarkson tells the story of the Liberal Party’s performance in the last nine elections, providing essential historical context for each and offering incisive, be- hind-the-scenes detail about how the party has planned, changed, and executed its successful electoral strategies. Arguing that the Liberal Party has opportunistically straddled the political centre since Sir John A. Macdonald -- leaning left or moving right as circumstances required -- Clarkson also shows that the party’s grip on power is becoming in- creasingly uncertain, having lost its appeal not only in the West, but now in Québec. While Clarkson contends that the Grits’ prospects are less rosy in the years ahead, the “big red machine” will remain a formi- dable political force. An ideal political primer, deftly written and filled with a wealth of fact and analysis, The Big Red Machine is a fascinating history of Liberal pragmatism, communication tactics, and dramatic changes in leader- ship style. “...reveals insights and realities not available to the casual observer.... the shrewd and focused product of a seasoned political scientist [who] asks on that basis the really tough questions.” –Senator Hugh Segal, Literary Review of Canada, December 2005 “The Big Red Machine is ... alive with clear, bright thinking. Clarkson ‘gets’ electoral politics.” – John Duffy, The Globe and Mail, October 15, 2005 Stephen Clarkson is author of Canada and the Reagan Challenge, Uncle Sam and Us, and Trudeau and Our Times, for which he was awarded the Governor-General’s Award. He is Professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto.

By reconstructing a neglected body of Carr’s works that was central in shaping her vision and career, it makes possible a new assessment of her significance as a leading figure in the history of early twentieth century North American modernism. Gerta Moray analyzes a body of works that are of vital importance to Canadians today not only as a representation of our culture, but also as a signpost of a new stage of accommodation with the country’s First Nations. The text is accompanied by nearly 300 illustrations, including 85 in colour. Unsettling Encounters includes a vivid recreation of the rapidly chang- ing historical and social circumstances in which Carr made this body of paintings and writings. Carr lived and worked in BC at a time when the growing settler population was rapidly taking over and developing the land and its resources.  Moray argues that Carr’s work takes on its full significance only when it is seen as a conscious intervention in settler-Native relations. She examines Carr in relation to the images of Native peoples that were then being constructed by missionaries and by anthropologists and exploited by the promoters of World’s Fairs and museums. Carr’s famous, highly expressive, later paintings were based to a great extent on the results of her early experience.  At the same time they were a response to new currents in North American culture in the 1920s and 30s.  Moray explores Carr’s participation in the Group of Seven’s agenda to build a national culture, and her sense of her own position as a woman artist in this masculine arena. Unsettling Encounters is the definitive study of Carr’s ‘Indian’ images, locating them both within the local context of Canadian history and the wider international currents of visual culture. Dr. Gerta Moray is a professor of Art History at the University of Guelph. She has previously taught at the Universities of Sheffield, Edinburgh, Stirling, and Toronto.

Layman JUNE 168 pages, 11 x 9” 130 color and duotone illustrations ISBN 0-295-98591-7, hc $49.95 ISBN 0-7748-1303-2, pb $29.95 History / Environment The Columbia River of today bears little resemblance to the river Native Americans, First Nations, and settlers knew in the early twentieth century. Between 1933 and 1984, an unparalleled fervour of engineering transformed much of the river into a series of large reservoirs contained by fourteen hydroelectric dams. While many grieved the loss of the free-flowing river, others embraced a newly tamed waterway that could control floods, irrigate desert lands, and supply electrical power for the growing region. River of Memory honours a place and time now gone from view. It restores an unfettered Columbia through more than ninety historical photographs that capture the river as it once appeared. This extraordinary visual record is accompanied by the words of early explorers, surveyors, and naturalists who wrote about specific places along the river and by the work of contemporary Canadian and American writers and poets. Organized to carry the reader from the mouth of the Columbia where it enters the ocean to its source in eastern British Columbia, the narrative introduces the natural history of the river through the archetypal journey of salmon returning to the river’s headwaters in Columbia Lake. Introducing each section are colour illustrations of salmon and other indigenous fish by noted artist Joseph Tomelleri. River of Memory encourages readers to linger along the river’s shores and spend time reflecting on its dramatic mountain and plateau landscapes. It fosters connections between the river’s natural and human histories through the words of the distinguished writers represented throughout, including Jeannette Armstrong, Gloria Bird, Peter Christensen, Tim McNulty, Kathleen Dean Moore, Eileen Pearkes, Theodore Roethke, Kim Stafford, William Stafford, Robert Sund, David Wagoner, Elizabeth Woody, and many more.

Local Knowledge, Colonial Encounters, and Social Imagination Julie Cruikshank JANUARY 328 pages, est., 6 x 9” 23 b/w photos, 10 maps ISBN 0-7748-1187-0, pb $29.95 Anthropology / Native Studies The glaciers creep Like snakes that watch their prey, from their far fountains, Slow rolling on. – Percy Shelley, “Mont Blanc,” 1816 Glaciers in North America’s far northwest figure prominently in indigenous oral traditions, early travelers’ journals, and the work of geophysical scientists. By following such stories across three centuries, this book explores local knowledge, colonial encounters, and environmental change. Do Glaciers Listen? examines conflicting depictions of glaciers to show how natural and social histories are entangled. During late stages of the Little Ice Age, significant geophysical changes coincided with dramatic social upheaval in the Saint Elias Mountains. European visitors brought conceptions of nature as sublime, as spiritual, or as a resource for human progress. They saw glaciers as inanimate, subject to empirical investigation and measurement. Aboriginal responses were strikingly different. From their perspectives, glaciers were sentient, animate, and quick to respond to human behaviour. Focusing on these contrasting views, Julie Cruikshank shows how local knowledge is produced, rather than “discovered,” and how oral histories conjoin social and biophysical processes. She traces how divergent views continue to weave through contemporary debates about protected areas, parks, and the new World Heritage site that encompasses the area where Alaska, British Columbia, and the Yukon Territory now meet. Readers interested in Native studies, anthropology, northern studies, and colonial studies will find this a fascinating read and a rich addition to circumpolar literature. Julie Cruikshank is professor emerita in the Department of Anthropology and Sociology at the University of British Columbia. She is author of Life Lived Like a Story and The Social Life of Stories (see pages 28, 30).

Delaney Foreword by J.L. Granatstein Self-doubt so plagued him that he suffered a nervous breakdown even before fighting his first combat action. But, by the end of the Second World War, Bert Hoffmeister had exorcised his anxieties, risen from Captain to Major-General, and won more awards than any Canadian officer in the war. Moreover, he earned a reputation as a fearless commander on the battlefield – one who led from the front, who was loved by those he led. How did he do it? The Soldiers’ General explains how Hoffmeister conducted his business as a military commander. With an astute analytical eye, Delaney carefully dissects Hoffmeister’s numerous battles to reveal how he managed and how he led, how he directed and how he inspired. An exemplary leader, Hoff- meister stood out among his contemporaries, not so much for his technical ability to move the chess pieces well, but rather for his ability to get the chess pieces to move themselves. The most comprehensive and accessible study of any Canadian military commander to date, The Soldiers’ General will appeal as much to lovers of military history as it will to anyone in search of a good story. Douglas E. Delaney is a professor at the Royal Military College of Canada, and Infantry Officer (Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry). STUDIES IN CANADIAN MILITARY HISTORY JANUARY 320 pages, 6 x 9” 21 b/w photos, 15 maps ISBN 0-7748-1149-8, pb $29.95 Military History Multicultural Nationalism Civilizing Difference, Constituting Community Gerald Kernerman Canadian citizenship has long been characterized as a “mosaic” instead of a “melting pot.” Accept- ance of minority ethnic, racial, religious, cultural, and linguistic groups has been seen as key to our sense of what it means to be Canadian. Such multi- plicity, however, has given rise to ongoing debates over equality, diversity, identity, and unity. This groundbreaking work examines and expands accepted ways of thinking about Canadian citizen- ship. Kernerman examines Canadian constitutional documents, public speeches, and media texts. He critiques what he sees as two competing understandings of how Canada ought to manage its diversity: on the one hand, the argument for differentiated citizenship, or “difference,” and on the other, the case for universal and undif- ferentiated citizenship, or “equality.” Positing that each of these positions is preoccupied with the challenges diversity represents for cohesion and stability, Kernerman proposes a post-nationalist multiculturalism that does not attempt to ask, or answer, the thorny “unity” question. An important contribution to the critical literature on Canadian politics, citizenship, and multicultural- ism, Multicultural Nationalism will appeal to read- ers interested in critical theory, multiculturalism, and law and society. Gerald Kernerman is a professor of Political Science at York University. LAW AND SOCIETY SERIES JANUARY 160 pages, 6 x 9” ISBN 0-7748-1001-7, pb $24.95 Politics Good Government? Good Citizens? Courts, Politics, and Markets in a Changing Canada W.A. Bogart Good Government? Good Citizens? explores the evolving concept of the Canadian citizen at the beginning of this century. Three forces are at work to reconstitute the citizen in Canadian society: courts, politics, and markets. Bogart examines a number of issues surrounding Canadian citizenship, including First Peoples, cyberspace, education, and an aging Canada. The book concludes with reflections on the “good citizen” at the dawning of the new century. Good Government? Good Citizens? will appeal to readers interested in law, political science, and the chang- ing face of Canada and its citizens. “Professor Bogart’s book is a timely, thoughtful, and provocative exploration of many of the important issues facing contemporary Canadian society. It is a useful and vibrant contribution to our continuing dialogue regarding law, politics, and the marketplace. Whatever the reader’s perspective, it will not disappoint.” – Eleanore A. Cronk, Justice of the Court of Appeal for Ontario “Bogart’s well-written and important book, drawing on a diverse body of scholarship and evidence, traces the transformations in Canadian law and politics over the past twenty years. His analysis is ambitious, insightful, provocative, and timely.” – Harry W. Arthurs, University Professor of Law and Political Science, York University W.A. Bogart teaches in the Faculty of Law at the University of Windsor.

In this substantially updated edition of Morals and the Media, Nick Russell addresses many of the concerns the public has about the media as he examines why the latter behave the way they do. He also discusses how values have been developed and applied and suggests value systems that can be used to judge special situations. This revised edition covers the many changes in the Canadian media in the last decade, including further concentration of media ownership, media convergence, online journalism, the rise of the web log, and the tightening economic pressures on the industry as a whole. While much of the debate in this field has focused on conditions in the United States, Russell points out that the ethical issues that arise in Canada are often substantially differ- ent from those in the US. In the US individuals have the protection of the First Amendment, but it is the very different Charter of Rights and Freedoms that determines the rights of Canadians, and also the laws that relate to the media. Morals and the Media will be of great value in journalism courses and an important resource for journalists, as it offers criteria for analyz- ing complex situations and reaching justifiable decisions. It will also be of interest to the general reader, as it gives insights into how the media work and provides a yardstick by which to judge their performance.

The Last Word Media Coverage of the Supreme Court of Canada Florian Sauvageau, David Schneiderman, and David Taras The Last Word examines the relationship between two of the most important institu- tions in Canadian life: the Supreme Court of Canada and the Canadian news media. This relationship is crucial not only for the court and for journalists, but also for the public, who understand the work of the court through the media. The authors examine a year of media coverage centred around four very high-pro- file cases: the Marshall case, about Aboriginal rights; the Vriend case, regarding gay rights; the Quebec Secession Reference; and the Sharpe child pornography case. Analyzing nearly fifteen hundred newspaper and TV reports, and interviewing judges, journalists, and executive legal officers, Sauvageau, Schneiderman, and Taras provide a rich and detailed account of the relationship between the court and the media in presenting these decisions to the Canadian public. The authors examine the differences between television and newspaper coverage, national and regional reporting, and the French- and English-language media. They also describe how judges and journalists understand and interact with each other amidst often-clash- ing legal and journalistic cultures. The Last Word argues that journalists often have the final say in explaining the court’s actions and judgments to the public. While judges have uncontested power over legal interpretation, journalists control how the message reaches the Canadian people. Engagingly written and thoroughly researched, The Last Word will appeal to readers inter- ested in the law, the media, and public affairs in general. LAW AND SOCIETY SERIES “The Last Word makes a very important contribution to knowledge in an almost non-existent field: I know of no other book published in Canada on this subject in either English or French. It should contribute to the very lively debate about the court, not only in the legal and media milieu, but in the general public as well.” – Andrée Lajoie, Faculty of Law, Université de Mon- tréal Florian Sauvageau is Professeur, Département d’information et de commu- nication, Université Laval.

Has cabinet really become just a focus group for the prime minister? Do political staff and central agency bureaucrats enhance or diminish democracy? In an accessible, thorough, and balanced fashion, Graham White examines the concentration of power in cabinet and the prime minister’s office. Taking the view that explaining our Westminster- style government as a benign dictatorship is an oversimplification, Cabinets and First Ministers pro- vides an honest assessment of current conditions. White renders a clear account of the development, structure, and operation of cabinet, and the role of the first ministers at the federal, provincial, and territorial levels. He further discusses how the processes that support cabinet are affected by the considerable power of the first minister and looks at the ways in which they allow for the involvement of other elected members and the public. Keeping in mind the core concerns of the Canadian Democratic Audit, White also examines first min- isters and cabinets with an eye to accountability and transparency. His cogent analysis does much to explain this much-scrutinized aspect of our de- mocracy, and points the way to realistic proposals for its improvement. Graham White is a professor of political science at the University of Toronto.

Today, voter turnout levels are at historic lows, while Internet usage is at historic highs. Can we still make the claim, then, that new information and communication technologies (ICTs) enhance democratic life in Canada? How have communication technologies affected the distribution of power and practice of politics in Canadian society? In Communication Technology, Darin Barney inves- tigates the links between ICTs and our democracy. Framing his discussion around the Canadian Demo- cratic Audit’s central concerns of inclusiveness, public participation, and responsiveness, Barney argues that the potential of ICTs to contribute to a more democratic political system will remain largely untapped unless the more conventional dimensions of Canadian politics, the economy, and modes of governance are re-oriented. Communication Technology poses some pro- vocative questions about the state of Canadian democracy and the place of ICTs in shaping and improving it. Students of political science and media studies, as well as those with an interest in understanding the activist potential of ICTs will find this book particularly compelling.

Turner The European explorers who first visited the Northwest Coast of North America assumed that the entire region was virtually untouched wilderness whose occupants used the land only minimally, hunting and gathering shoots, roots, and berries that were peripheral to a diet and culture focused on salmon. Colonizers who followed the explorers used these claims to justify the displacement of Native groups from their land. Scholars now understand, however, that Northwest Coast peoples were actively cultivating plants well before they experienced contact with Europe- ans. Keeping It Living tells the story of tradi- tional Northwest Coast cultivation practices, and of how they came to be overlooked by Europeans. Bringing together some of the world’s most prominent specialists on Northwest Coast cultures, this book discusses plant manage- ment methods found from the Oregon Coast to Southeast Alaska. It looks at tobacco gar- dens among the Haida and Tlingit, managed camas plots among the Coast Salish of Puget Sound and the Strait of Georgia, estaurine root gardens along the central coast of British Columbia, wapato plot maintenance on the Columbia and Fraser Rivers, and tended berry plots up and down the entire coast.

Geography of British Columbia, Second Edition People and Landscapes in Transition Brett McGillivray What makes British Columbia such a unique province? What physical processes have made this province so rugged and produced such remarkable variation in climate and veg- etation? Why did non-Natives come to British Columbia, and what impact did they have on First Nations? How were resources developed in the past and how are those resources devel- oped today? This fully revised second edition of Geography of British Columbia discusses these and many other aspects of the growth of this distinctive province. Brett McGillivray focuses first on the combi- nation of physical processes that produced a spectacular variety of mountains, rivers, lakes, islands, fjords, forests, and minerals, explaining the forces that created the province and the natural hazards that can reshape it. McGillivray also covers the economic geogra- phy of the province, with chapters on forestry, the salmon fishery, metal mining, energy sup- ply and demand, agriculture, water, and the tourism industry. It addresses the present-day issues of urbanization, economic develop- ment, and resource management, providing a thorough background to these topics and suggesting what the future might hold. This up-to-date and comprehensive explora- tion of the rich historical geography and development of British Columbia will be wel- comed by teachers, students, scholars, and everyone with an interest in the province.

Most of us have never been there, yet im- ages of the region are within easy reach: in books and magazines, and on television, computer, and movie screens. Peter Geller uncovers the history behind these popular conceptions of the Canadian North. Northern Exposures looks at the photographic and film practice of the three major colonial institu- tions in the Arctic and Sub-Arctic -- the Canadian government, the Anglican Church of Canada, and the Hudson’s Bay Company -- in the first half of the twentieth century. Their visual representations of the region were widely circulated in official publica- tions and presented in film shows and lantern slide lectures. Geller reveals the varied ways in which taking and displaying pictures of northern people and places extended control over the northern reaches of the Canadian nation. This book sheds light on twentieth-century visual culture and the relationship between photography and colonial power, and raises questions about the role of visual representation in history. Illustrated with over eighty-five images from photographs and films of the period, this book will appeal to those interested in Canadian history, Northern and Abo- riginal studies, anthropology, and visual culture. Peter Geller lives and teaches in northern Manitoba and is the Dean of Arts at the University College of the North.

Over the last four centuries, the Bay has been visited by some of the most famous figures in Canadian history, from Samuel de Champlain to the Group of Seven. This book traces the history of Canadians’ reactions to and interactions with this distinctive and often intractable landscape. Beginning with a revealing analysis of the carto- graphic history of the Bay, Campbell proceeds to examine changing cultural representations of landscape over time. Each chapter presents a different type of encounter – the varying ways in which people approached or interacted with the Bay. The book also includes many illustrations, including historical maps, archival and contempo- rary photographs, and paintings by the Group of Seven and other Canadian artists. Shaped by the West Wind is about how places take on shifting cultural meanings over time.

Goodall, Jr. When Bud Goodall’s father mysteriously died, he inherited three well-worn books: a Holy Bible, The Great Gatsby, and a diary. They turned his life upside down. From the diary Goodall learned that his father had been a CIA operative during the height of the Cold War. The Bible and Gatsby were his codebooks. Many mysteries of Bud’s childhood came into focus. The high living in Rome and Lon- don. The blood-stained stiletto in his jewelry case. The mysterious “uncles” who interrogated the six- year-old boy after embassy parties for information gleaned from other children. Bud  was always told he never had “a need to know.” Or did he? Now, as an adult and a university professor, Goodall attempts to fill in the missing pieces of his childhood by uncovering a lifetime of secrets. Who were his parents? What did his father do on those business trips “working for the government?” What betrayal turned a heroic career of national service into a nightmare of alcoholism, depression, and premature death for both of his parents? Slowly, inexorably, Goodall unearths the chilling secrets of a CIA family in A Need to Know. H.L.

Eco-Warriors Understanding the Radical Environmental Movement Rik Scarce Published in 1990, Eco-Warriors was the first  in- depth look at the people, the actions, the history and the philosophies behind the “radical” environ- mental movement. Focusing on the work of  Earth First!, the Sea Shepherds, Greenpeace, and the Animal Liberation Front, among others, Rik Scarce told exciting and sometimes frightening tales  of front-line warriors defending an Earth they see as being in environmental peril. While continuing to study these movements as a Ph.D. student, Scarce was jailed for contempt of court for refus- ing to divulge his sources to prosecutors eager to thwart these groups’ activities. In this updated edition, Scarce brings this movement up to date – including material on the Earth Liberation Front – and provides current resources for all who wish to learn more about one of the most dynamic and confrontational political movements of our time. Literate, captivating, and informative, this is also an ideal volume for classes on environmentalism, social movements, or contemporary politics.

There are two. The Israeli historical nar- rative speaks of Zionism as the Jewish national movement, of building a refuge from persecution, and of national regeneration. The Palestinian narra- tive speaks of invasion, expulsion, and oppression. No wonder peace remains elusive. This volume attempts to present both histories with parallel nar- ratives of key points in the 19th and 20th centuries to 1948. The histories are presented by 14 Israeli and Palestinian experts, joined by other historians, journalists, and activists, who then discuss the dif- ferences and similarities between their accounts. By creating an appreciation, understanding, and respect for the “other,” the first steps can be made to foster a shared history of a shared land.  The reader has the opportunity to witness, at first hand, a respectful confrontation between the competing versions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Young, bright women mentored by older scholars, usually men, who attempt to mold them into their own masculine ideals. Janice Hocker Rushing’s study of over 200 women and their life transformations is the subject of this eloquent book. Using the tropes of mythol- ogy and Jungian psychology, the author charac- terizes the many paths these women’s academic lives take: as muse for a faltering older scholar, as mistress or wife, as the dutiful academic daughter. Their resistance to this power differen- tial also takes many forms: as a veiled woman, silent in public but active in private, or the Siren, using her sexuality to beat the system. Ultimately, Rushing arrives at the myth of eros and psyche, where women’s self understanding and personal development turns her erotic mentoring into an autonomous, whole, and free life, unfettered by any man. These women’s stories, and Rushing’s literary and literate framing of their lives, will ring true to many in the university.

Thousands of years before the pyramids were built in Egypt, a great civilization arose on the Anatolian plains. The Goddess and the Bull details the dramatic quest by archaeologists to unearth the buried secrets of this huge, spectacularly well- preserved early farming settlement. Balter pulls the curtain on romantic notions about archaeology to reveal the true story behind modern excavations – the thrill of history-making scientific discovery as well as the crushing disappointments, the community and friendship, the love affairs, and the often bitter rivalries between warring camps of archaeologists. Along the way, Balter describes the cutting-edge advances in archaeological science that have allowed the team at Çatalhöyük to illuminate the central questions of human existence.

A test of the limits of physical endurance, the river ascent forces Carey to work out tensions with his grown son and come to terms with a painful past haunted by a legacy of destructive family relationships. Upstream is at once a compelling chronicle of the river journey and a moving portrayal of turbulent father-son relationships. Carey’s paternal grandfather, Thomas, preached a hellfire gospel in the Oklahoma Territories, carrying his message to cowboys, sodbusters, whiskey peddlers, Choctaws, Chickasaws, and Osage. In his church, he was honored. In his home, he was not – neither his son nor his wife escaped his wrath or his razor strap. The son, George, carried mental scars forward into his own marriage, where they affected the author’s childhood. During days of hard paddling, Carey comes to admit the quick anger and violent mood swings he shares with his father and grandfather, and to acknowledge the crippling power of that legacy. His battle against the current, and his determination to reconcile with the living and the dead men of his life, shape this powerful memoir. Robin Carey is the author of Baja Journey: Reveries of a Sea Kayaker and of North Bank: Claiming a Place on the Rogue.

In succeeding years he distilled his mathematical notations from dozens of journal notebooks into the first accurate maps of the entire northwest quadrant of North America. The writings in those same journals reveal a complex man who was headstrong, curious, and resourceful in ways that reflected both his London education and his fur trade apprenticeship on the Canadian Shield. In The Mapmaker’s Eye: David Thompson on the Columbia Plateau, Jack Nisbet utilizes fresh research to convey how Thompson experienced the sweep of human and natural history etched across the Columbia drainage. He places Thompson’s movements within the larger contexts of the European Enlightenment, the British fur trade economy, and American expansion as repre- sented by the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Nisbet courses through journal notebooks to assemble and comment on Thompson’s bird and mammal lists, the explorer’s surprisingly detailed Salish vocabulary, the music Thompson and his crew listened to on a barrel organ, and the woodcraft techniques they used to maintain themselves under shelter or while on the move. Visual elements bring Thompson’s daybooks to life. Watercolour landscapes and tribal portraits by the first artists to travel along his trade routes illuminate what Thompson saw. Tribal and fur trade artifacts reveal intimate details of two cultures at the moment of contact. The Mapmaker’s Eye also depicts the surveying instruments that Thompson used, and displays the series of remark- able maps that grew out of his patient, persistent years of work. Nisbet taps into oral memories kept by the Kootenai and Salish bands who guided Thompson and his party along their way. Jack Nisbet has been a Washington resident for over 30 years. His books include Sources of the River: Tracking David Thompson across Western North America, which won a Washington State Governor’s award, the Idaho Librarians Book of the Year, and the Murray Morgan History Prize.

Carr wrote these short pieces later in life and they rekindled in her strong childhood memories and associations. She delights in the brightness of buttercups that “let Spring’s secret out,” muses over the hardiness of stonecrop – “How any plant can grow on bare rock and be so fleshy leafed and fat is a marvel.” – and declares that “botanical science has un-skunked the skunk cabbage.” Carr’s playful words often bring a smile to readers. About catnip, she writes: “I did think it was kind of God to make a special flower for cats.” Wild Flowers is illustrated with finely detailed watercolours of wild plants by Emily Henrietta Woods, who was Carr’s childhood drawing teacher in Victoria. The originals of Carr’s manuscript and Woods’ botanical illustrations reside in collections of the BC Archives; neither have been published before now. In the Foreword to this book, archivist and historian Kathryn Bridge gives context to Wild Flowers within the body of Carr’s previously published writings. She also describes the extensive Emily Carr literary records held by the BC Archives, and gives short biographies of Carr and Woods. Emily Carr (1871-1945) is one of Canada’s most recognized and loved artists.

Rajala Up Coast offers the first comprehensive history of British Columbia’s central-and-north-coast forest industry. Rajala integrates social, political, and environmental themes in depicting the relationship of coastal people and communities to the forest from the late 19th century to the present. The account begins with the emergence of a small-scale industry tied to salmon canneries and early settlements, and traces the development of a diverse structure involving sawmills, tie and pole producers, and handloggers struggling to earn a profit. But from the early 20th century on, government policies favoured the interests of giant pulp-and-paper firms such as Pacific Mills. A turn to sustained-yield forestry after World War II pro- moted further concentration of ownership, while postwar development drew the region into a role as hinterland log extraction site for southern plants fed by enormous Tree Farm Licenses. Relating these themes to a tradition of activism against capitalist inequities, Up Coast discusses First Nations, union and community protests against corporate exploitation of labour and resources. In addressing the modern era of land claims, environmentalism and capital-flight, Rajala turns to the complex and unresolved struggle for a more equitable and sustainable human relationship with British Columbia’s forests. Richard Rajala is professor of history at the University of Victoria and the author of Clearcutting the Pacific Rain Forest.

He follows closely at the elbow of Jesse Lange, of Lange Winery, peppering the young winemaker with questions about growing grapes and making wine. With dry wit and otherworldly patience, Jesse Lange offers his interlocutor a primer on pinot, describing how acres of tiny black grapes are turned into complex and superb wines. Doyle is absorbed in the real work of winemaking – “the sheer labor of it, the creativity, the dust, the bugs, the machinery, the botany, the chemistry, the wild nuttiness of trying to make a great wine.” He records the rhythms and cycles of winemaking – the fallow times, the times of wild energy, and always the worry about the precious crop. Doyle serves as a cheerful tour guide through the world of wine, alert to the colorful and riveting stories that swirl around its creation and consumption. In The Grail, he collects and shares dozens of these stories – about the natural history of the vineyard, the fussiness of the pinot vine, the boom in pinot noir around the world, the surprising buying habits of tasting room visitors, and the subtle craft of winemakers who know, as Jesse Lange says, grinning, “how to get out of the way of great grapes.” In short, The Grail is a spirited and entertaining chase for a truly special wine.

Pauling’s simple, inexpensive plan suggests avoiding sugar, stress, and smoking, working in a job that you like, and being happy with your family. To avoid serious illness and enjoy a longer life, he recommends taking vitamins for optimal health and as insurance against disease. Pauling greatly influenced subsequent research regarding the role of nutrition in healthy living, coining the term “orthomolecular medicine” to describe the practice of using vitamins and other substances normally present in the body to improve health and fight viruses, cancer, cardiovascular disease, allergies, arthritis, and other illnesses. This new edition of Pauling’s book includes an afterword and information on additional resources by the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University. Whether one reads Pauling’s book for his prescription for healthy living, for an understanding of his impact on nutritional science today, or for its historical importance, one cannot escape the conclusion that diet and lifestyle are the key to disease prevention. Linus Pauling (1901-1994), the only recipient of two unshared Nobel Prizes, is widely regarded as one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century.

As a pacifist, he worked on conservation projects for Civilian Public Service, an alternative program for young men who refused to participate in World War II. As a writer, he recorded the life he found there. Down in My Heart tells the story of how a wartime draft created a community for peace. It recounts life in the camps: the men’s day-to-day activities – fighting forest fires, building trails and roads, restoring eroded lands –  and their earnest pursuit of a social ethic rooted in religious and secular pacifist ideals. In his introduction to this new edition of the book, Kim Stafford calls them a “generation of seekers,” men who practiced alternatives to violence, refused to augment the killing, and spent the war years working full time to “envision ways to avoid the next war.” A fascinating look at the formative years of a major American poet, Down in My Heart also provides a rich glimpse into a little-known aspect of the war. First published in 1947, it remains timely, inviting readers to imagine how this legacy of pacifism might inform their own lives. William Stafford (1914-1993) was an enor- mously loved and admired teacher and poet. He received  the National Book Award for Traveling through the Dark.

Christofides Translations by Constantine Christofides and Christopher Carsten In 1855 the French caricaturist Honoré Daumier and six other artists proposed to illustrate anew the fables of revered French poet and fabulist Jean de La Fontaine (1621-95). Their project was never realized-until now. Koren Christofides has brought together over sixty artists from around the globe to create original artwork for the international exhibition and book, Fables of La Fontaine. These illustrations celebrate an extraordinary intersection of contemporary art with the fabulist tradition. Constantine Christofides and Christopher Carsten have translated sixty-five of La Fontaine’s fables. Readers will find not only familiar tales like “The Hare and the Tortoise,” but will also discover a trove of lesser-known satiric fables,  translated here with sophisticated gusto and an elegance worthy of La Fontaine’s enduring genius.  A cogent introduction by Constantine Christofides describes the volatile social context of seventeenth-century France as well as the literary tradition, stemming from Aesop, that underlies La Fontaine’s fables. Koren Christofides is a widely exhibited painter whose work is in private and public collections in the US and Europe.

From a blanket on the ground to elaborately carved four-poster beds, from a hammock swinging under the stars to a stifling cupboard bed built into a wall, this well-illustrated book introduces readers to beds and sleeping customs over time and around the world. Beginning with “sleeping low,” Carlano and Sumberg show that whereas sleeping on bedding on the floor was the lot of the poor in Europe and North America, in many other parts of the world it has long been a cultural and aesthetic choice. “Sleeping high” started early, too: raised platform beds are known from archaeological finds and tomb paintings from the fourth century BCE in Egypt. Rounding out the tour, Carlano and Sumberg describe the ways people have found to sleep safely and comfortably while on the move, from full-time nomads sleeping in tents to 20th century tourists in Pullman cars. They devote a chapter to special beds, cradles, and cribs, and an aptly final chapter to the abundance of sleep imagery associated with death. Sleeping Around offers an informative and entertaining look at the history of beds and their ever-changing designs.

It involves an act of re-creation, especially when the world of cities is changing dramatically. Writing in an acces- sible style, Charles Landry examines urban life in an age of complexity, explaining how imagination and cultural creativity can be used for cities to be more successful. He looks at how cities can har- ness their resources by strengthening their identity and distinctiveness and get onto the ‘radar screen’ in adapting to the changing economic dynamics, global terms of trade and mass migration. Landry explores the ‘geography of misery and ge- ography of desire’ in suggesting how we can better experience the sensory and physical landscape of cities and turn both into assets. He examines the deeper faultlines, paradoxes and strategic dilemmas that make creating the ‘good city’ so difficult and crystallizes how the concept of urban psychology is helpful in decision making. The Art of City Making is practically focused and presents guidelines, policy approaches, and clear recommendations, drawing on an array of fasci- nating international case studies and the author’s extensive experience working in over 30 countries around the world.The Art of City Making will be read by professionals in town planning, architecture, economic development, or anyone connected with city development.

A large majority is certain that she was mentally ill, and a small minor- ity is equally certain that she was not mentally ill but was misdiagnosed by psychiatrists. In this daring exploration of Woolf’s life and work, Thomas Szasz examines the evidence and rejects both views. Instead, he looks at how Woolf, with her husband Leonard, used the concept of madness and the profession of psychiatry to manage and manipulate their own and each other’s lives. Szasz argues that Woolf was a victim neither of mental illness, nor psychiatry, nor her husband. He finds her to be an intelligent and self-assertive person, a moral agent who used mental illness, psychiatry, and her husband to fashion for herself a life of her own choosing. Szasz interprets Virginia Woolf’s life and work as expressions of her character, and her character as the product of her free will. He offers this view as a corrective against the prevailing, ostensibly scientific view that attributes both her “madness” and her “genius” to biological-genetic causes. We tend to attribute exceptional achievement to genius, and exceptional failure to madness. Both, says Szasz, are fictitious entities. This illuminating volume will interest the wide audience interested in Virginia Woolf and her work, as well as those interested in the use and abuse of psychiatry. Thomas Szasz is professor of psychiatry emeri- tus at the State University of New York.

Jewish humor is humor by Jews and about Jews, in whatever medium this humor is found; jokes are defined as short stories, meant to amuse, with a punch line, though Jew- ish humor exists in many other forms – riddles, comic definitions, parodies – as well. The book makes a “radical” suggestion about the origin of Jewish humor – namely, that Sarah and Abraham’s relation to God, and the name of their son Isaac (which, in Hebrew, means laughter), recognizes a special affinity in Jews for humor. Abraham does not sacrifice Isaac (humor) and, thus, humor and the Jews are linked early in Jewish history. The Genius of the Jewish Joke is an entertaining and informative inquiry into Jewish humor that explores its distinctiveness, its unique spirit, and its role in Jewish identity. “This is the funniest thing I’ve read since Freud.

Katz, a leading authority on social consequences of communica- tion technology, analyzes the way new mobile telecommunications affect daily life both in the United States and around the world. Magic in the Air is the most wide-ranging analysis of mobile communication to date.  Katz investi- gates the spectrum of social aspects of the cell phone’s impact on society and the way social forces affect the use, display and re-configura- tion of the cell phone. Surveying the cell phone’s current and emerging role in daily life, Katz finds that it provides many benefits for the user, and that some of these benefits are subtle and even counter-intuitive. He identifies ways the cell phone has not been entirely positive, and outlines some steps to ameliorate the cell phone’s negative ef- fects. Katz also burrows beneath the obvious to investigate deeper changes in social organization and family life that are enabled by the seemingly ubiquitous cell phone. James E. Katz is a professor of communication at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey and director of the Rutgers University Center for Mobile Communication Studies, the first academic center dedicated to the study of social aspects of mobile communication.

Katz ORDER FROM uniPRESSES: 1 877 864 847720 UBC Press SPRING 2006 Prominent social critic Henry Giroux explores how new forms of media are challenging the very nature of politics in his most poignant and striking book to date. Through the Internet and other media the ability of small groups (including terrorists) to broadcast political messages has changed the landscape of politics and challenged democracy in new ways. Violence is now routinely visible through the theatri- cal staging efforts of governments, media corpora- tions, and terrorists. Reality television programs run weekly along with beheading videos and other visuals intent on playing upon public fear. The emergence of the spectacle of terror as a new form of politics raises important questions about how fear and anxiety can be marketed, how terrorism can be used to recruit people in support of authoritarian causes, and how the spectacle of terrorism works in an age of injustices, deep inse- curities, disembodied social relations, fragmented communities, and a growing militarization of eve- ryday life. At the same time, new media such as the Internet, digital camcorders, and cell phones can be used to energize sites of resistance, pro- vide alternative public spheres, pluralize political struggles, and expand rather than close down democratic relations. Giroux considers what condi- tions and changes are necessary to reinvigorate democracy in light of these new challenges. Henry A. Giroux holds the Global TV Network Chair in Communications at McMaster University.

Giroux Two Aspirins and a Comedy How Television can Enhance Health and Society Metta Spencer Can television be a positive force in society? Can socially conscious entertainment change the world? Two Aspirins and Comedy asks these questions and more and arrives at surprising and unconventional answers. The very real social and political ramifications of books like Uncle Tom’s Cabin and films such as Ghandi led sociologist Metta Spencer to delve deeper into the signifi- cance and power of entertainment as a means to influence society. Not only did she find current examples of socially constructive TV program- ming but she also prescribes ways that mass entertainment sources can better use their power to positively influence society. Two Aspirins and a Comedy explores the health benefits of entertainment through the moral and spiritual effects of vicarious involvement with fic- tional characters. Spencer finds the television dra- mas like Northern Exposure and ER to be examples of series that can elevate viewers’ emotions as well as meaningfully instruct them on important life les- sons. In a climate where television is often a culprit for society’s woes, Spencer casts a redemptive eye on the medium. She asserts that television, like other fictional landscapes, offers invaluable lessons, emotional bonding, and catharsis for a modern society whose members are increasingly cut off from one another.

He took his positions with great personal integrity, yet his views variously pleased and angered citizens on the right and the left. His inaugural appearance as pope in his native Poland helped spur Solidarity and the fall of the communist bloc, yet he recently chided George W. Bush and Western world lead- ers for excessive capitalist policies, citing their actions as a factor in deepening world poverty. He took exception to the liberation theology of Central American church leaders who viewed the philosophy as vital to the region’s future well being. His positions on family, sexuality, and reproductive issues have been welcomed by many, but viewed as out of step with the reality of the times by many church members. The book also considers Ben- edict XVI and his continuance of the conservative agenda set by John Paul II. This compact anthology is the first book to focus on the political legacy of Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI. It brings together articles to present this legacy from a variety of viewpoints to give the reader a well-considered portrait of John Paul II and Benedict XVI – as men, as world citizens, and as re- ligious leaders of a church of one billion members who today comprise one sixth of all humanity. The final pages look to the future of the papacy and Catholicism in the twenty-first century. Chester M.

This book is a haunting record of the extraordinary world that was created on September 11 and has now vanished forever. Exploring this “dust-driven world of collateral dam- age,” Josyph documented their struggle at a time when the bans against photography made him “a spy in the house of destruction.” Misinformed and marginalized by city and federal agencies, the neighborhood was on its own in coping with toxic infestation, landlords, insurers, and simple access to the place they were proud – and cursed – to call their home. Josyph finds in every detail new ways to envision that morning, and challenges more simplistic, mainstream views of Ground Zero with vivid portraits of exceptional New Yorkers who made a place for themselves in that tragic and transitory neighborhood. Peter Josyph is an author and filmmaker. His books include The Wounded River, which was a New York Times Notable Book of 1993; his films include Liberty Street: Alive at Ground Zero (2005).

It determines much of our behavior and our culture, but is it understood? Building on his groundbreaking work in Ecstasy and Rage, Michael Eigen confronts lust, mining the history of psychology and religion as well as the literary depths of the Symposium, the Iliad, and the book of Genesis. He also takes us into his own sessions as a psychoanalyst to show how lust expresses itself in the daily lives of real people. This comprehensive and accessible account of a still-taboo subject includes lust’s inescapable ties to reproduction and its ultimate resolution in death. Eigen uses contemporary and historical examples to show how lust is simultane- ously a positive force and potentially destructive. In championing the life-affirming aspects of lust, Eigen’s conclusions are thought-provoking, illumi- nating, and ultimately, healing. “Insightful and original, Lust is a major contribution from one of our most provocative thinkers. Michael Eigen continues to push the form of psychoanalytic discourse in a more personal and passionate direc- tion. Courageous, intelligent, and deeply engaging, it is a pleasure to read.” – Mark Epstein, author of Going to Pieces Without Falling Apart Michael Eigen is in private practice in New York.

Cole Over the Hill, You Pick Up Speed Reflections on Aging (for anyone who happens to be) Nardi Reeder Campion All writers have stories of how some teacher, friend, or spouse gave them commentary that undermined their confidence and their writing. This “toxic feedback” has tainted feedback’s reputation as a whole, causing too many writers to avoid or mismanage this valuable resource. In the first book to focus on this vital but delicate dynamic, Joni B. Cole shows writers how to use feedback to energize and inform their writing at every stage of the process. For feedback providers, she delivers insights into constructive criticism and the difference between being heard and being obnoxious. Finally, she offers advice to workshops and critique groups on how to thrive in this collective experience. Through a mixture of instruction, anecdotes, and moral support, Cole manages to detoxify the feedback process with humor and without laying blame, inspiring both sides of the interaction to make the most of this powerful resource.

She shares her love of tea and travel, her pleasure in family and friends, and her ongoing frustration at her penchant for losing items large and small, worthless and precious. And she introduces us to some notable people she has met along the way whose influence she continues to feel. Whether inviting her retirement home neighbours to watch a belly dancer or taking a long-dreamed-of trip to Paris and Normandy at eighty-six, Campion shows that aging can be both funny and fun.

David Hay argues for the inclusion of spiritual awareness as a cross-curricular element in the school syllabus to promote the development of morality and social cohesion. While culturally constructed pressures and the decline in institutional religion have led to the suppression of spiritual expression, children are, the author maintains, capable of profound and meaningful beliefs from an early age. A three-year research study into young children’s spirituality and its survival value informs Hay’s view that spirituality in education needs to overcome traditional ap- proaches and should adopt a theory of spirituality that includes religion but is not confined to it. This stimulating book will encourage educators, parents and others involved in teaching children to consider new approaches to facilitate children’s natural spiritual development.

She was unaware until well into adult- hood that everything she found difficult, including her lack of success in forming relationships, could be a result of having Asperger Syndrome. Used to being a misfit from a very young age, Jeanette found that being a member of a group in which she had a label – Jeanette the communist; Jeanette, enemy of the state; Jeanette the convict; Jeanette the drug addict – gave her a sense of order she could depend on, particularly in prison, where each day had a set routine and the inmates accepted her because of her rebel attitude. Finally diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at age 20, the author only began to accept her diagnosis some years later when she felt for the first time that she might learn to cope with being herself. Jeanette’s remarkable life and her journey towards finding a different kind of normal is compelling and inspiring reading for people with autism spectrum disorders, and those living or working with them.

Carolyn’s story documents her own challenging journey, offering unique insights into her feelings about self-harming and also her attitudes towards the therapy sessions commonly employed to help people who self-harm. It explores the complex nature of her relationship with the therapist, her initial resistance to recovery and her eventual progression towards self-knowledge and taking responsibility for her own actions. The first-person narrative offers a vividly honest voice to the feelings and compulsions that drive someone to harm themselves and explores the conflict between the desire to self-harm and the struggle to control and overcome this addictive, self-destructive behaviour. This timely book breaks the silence surrounding a difficult subject. It will provide valuable insights for therapists, counsellors, people who self-harm and their families and friends.

Then, mid-way through instructing his weekly martial arts class, he expe- rienced a stroke and was rushed to hospital. Until then, the word ‘stroke’ had meant little to Andy, and in this book he recounts the many difficulties in learning to live with his new situation. Funny, poignant and informative, the book is not just a personal story, but also offers a wealth of ad- vice and information for anyone who wants to know more about strokes. He explores a broad range of issues experienced by stroke survivors, from the very practical considerations of managing financial security and understanding medical approaches and terminology to the more personal challenges of coming to terms with a new sense of vulner- ability and dealing with the attitudes of friends and family. The common thread throughout is Andy’s insistence that he will not be a ‘stroke victim’ but a ‘stroke survivor’, determined to live with his new set of circumstances in a positive way. This book is a compelling yet practical source of information that will be valued by professionals and patients alike – whether a fellow stroke survivor, a concerned family member or a health or social care professional working with stroke victims. Andy McCann held the position of Assistant Headteacher at a secondary school in South Wales when he suffered his stroke. Since his stroke he has retired from teaching and is training as a clinical hypnotherapist and life coach. He lives in Cardiff, Wales, with his partner Anne.
