It was, that is, until Pierre Trudeau came to power. How did Turner, the golden boy of the 1970s, become the also-ran of the 1980s? The answer can be found in Paul Litt's perceptive political biography, which reveals the inner workings of Liberal Party politics as charted through the meteoric rise and fall of John Turner. Drawing on extensive interviews, including several with Turner, this engrossing work highlights his time in cabinet, his relationship with Trudeau, and his decision to leave politics in 1975 only to return to lead his party to a catastrophic loss in the 1984 election. Paul litt is a historian of twentieth-century Canada who is cross-appointed to the Department of History and the School of Canadian Studies at Carleton University in Ottawa.new releaSeSeptember 2011, 448 pages, 6 x 9"50 b&w photos978-0-7748-2264-0 hc $39.95978-0-7748-2266-4 library E-bookPolitical History, Biography, Political Science Official multiculturalism is the subject of heated debate. Is it the best way to foster social cohesion? Can public institutions evaluate minority-group claims fairly? This volume extends the discussion by exploring state responses to identity claims worldwide. Case studies on the construction of census categories, the interpretation of antidiscrimination norms, the assessment of indigenous rights, and the definition of freedom of religion bring to light both the risks and the opportunities of institutional multiculturalism. Public institutions can enhance or inhibit identity politics ? much depends on the agency of citizens and the ability of institutions to adapt to success and failure.avigail EisEnbErg is a professor of political science at the University of Victoria.

The resurgence of nationalism after the collapse of the Soviet Union, however, called for a reconsideration of the paradigm. Against Orthodoxy uses case studies from around the world to critically evaluate decades of new scholarship. The authors argue that theories of nationalism have ossified into a new set of orthodoxies. These overlook nationalism?s role as a generative force, one that reflects complex historical, political, and cultural arrangements that defy simplistic explanations.trEvor W. harrison is a professor of sociology at the University of Lethbridge. sloboDan Drakulic was an associate professor of sociology at Ryerson University.new releaSeAugust 2011, 368 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-2093-6 hc $90.00 978-0-7748-2095-0 library E-book Political Science, Sociology, Globalization, Political Theory & Philosophy against orthodoxyStudies in NationalismEdited by Trevor W. Harrison and Slobodan DrakulicAs national borders become more permeable, women are increasingly travelling from poor to rich countries to take up jobs as care workers. The struggle to maintain a healthy work-care balance in Western nations is creating a care deficit in the developing world. This volume links ethics to the social politics of care by examining the implications of the feminization of migrant labour and the shortcomings of social policy. From Canada to Sweden and from Korea to Japan, renowned and emerging scholars reveal that a truly feminist ethics of care must be grounded in the concrete lives of real people working in transnational webs of social relations.riannE mahon is the CIGI Chair in comparative social policy at the Balsillie School of International Affairs and a professor at Wilfrid Laurier University.

To answer this question, Caroline Dick compares the identity-driven theories of Charles Taylor, Will Kymlicka, and Avigail Eisenberg to the alternative rights framework embedded in cases such as Sawridge Band v. Canada, which set a First Nation?s right to self-determination against Indigenous women?s right to equality. The concept of identity itself is not the problem, Dick argues, but rather illiberal conceptions of group rights that obscure intragroup differences. Her proposal for a new politics of intragroup difference has the power to transform identity politics in Canada.carolinE Dick is an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Western Ontario. new releaSeNovember 2011, 272 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-2062-2 hc $90.00 978-0-7748-2064-6 library E-bookPolitical Science, Law & Politics, Canadian Courts & Constitution, Political Theory & Philosophy, Multiculturalism & Transnationalismthe Perils of identityGroup Rights and the Politics of Intragroup DifferenceCaroline Dickorder online @ www.ubcpress.ca     |    FALL 2011     3 Political SciencePolitical SciencePolitical SciencePost-9/11 security measures have sparked fears that the West is violating the very civil rights it strives to protect. Debates centre on the United States, but how have the politics of security influenced the commitment to freedom in other liberal democracies? Addressing security certificates, the war in Afghanistan to the detainment of Abdullah Almalki, Colleen Bell?s wide-ranging analysis demonstrates that Canada?s counter-terrorism practices are not a departure from liberal governance but rather a reconfiguration of its structures with an emphasis on security. She traces how the logic and practices of security are increasingly coming to define our rights and freedoms.collEEn bEll is a lecturer of international politics in the Department of Politics at Birkbeck, University of London.recently releaSedMay 2011, 216 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-1825-4  hc $85.00 978-0-7748-1827-8  library E-bookPolitical Science, Law & Politics, Security StudiesLaw and Society Seriesthe Freedom of securityGoverning Canada in the Age of Counter-TerrorismColleen Bell For decades, agitation by lesbians, gays, and other sexual minorities for political recognition has provoked a heated response among religious activists in both Canada and the United States. In this remarkable comparative study, expert authors explore the tenacity of anti-gay sentiment, as well as the dramatic shifts in public attitudes toward queer groups across all faith communities in the United States and Canada.

In this book, prominent political scientists explore the underlying issues that led to the showdown. Are publicly funded parties compatible with democracy? What effects has party finance reform had on elections and on the balance of power between parties and donors and between national parties and local organizations?

Jansen Politics on the Canadian prairies are puzzling. The provinces share common roots, but they have nurtured three distinct political cultures ?  Alberta is Canada?s bastion of conservatism, Saskatchewan its cradle of social democracy, and Manitoba its progressive centre. Jared J. Wesley explains this paradox by examining the rhetoric employed by dominant parties to renew their provinces? political code ? freedom for Alberta, security for Saskatchewan, and moderation for Manitoba.

Wesley The Liberal Party has fallen on hard times since 2006. Once Canada?s governing party but now confined to the sidelines, it struggles to renew itself. Drawing on interviews and personal observations in cross-country ridings, Royce Koop reveals that although the federal Liberal Party disassociated itself from its provincial cousins to rebuild itself in the mid-twentieth century, grassroots Liberals in the constituencies are building bridges between the national party and the provinces. This insider?s view of party politics challenges the idea that Canada has two distinct political spheres ? the provincial and the national ? and suggests that national parties can overcome the challenges of multi-level politics by deepening ties with constituencies.roycE kooP has taught political science at several Canadian universities, where he specializes in Canadian politics, political parties, and the politics of multi-level states.recently releaSedMay 2011, 228 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-2097-4  hc $85.00 978-0-7748-2099-8  library E-bookPolitical Science, Canadian Federal Politics, Provincial Politics, Canadian Government, Canadian Political Parties & Elections grassroots liberalsOrganizing for Local and National PoliticsRoyce Koop order online @ www.ubcpress.ca     |    FALL 2011     5 Political SciencePolitical SciencePolitical ScienceIn 1999 and 2000, France adopted laws to ensure equal access to elected office for women and men. Parity Democracy explores the evolution and influence of France?s gender parity reforms, from their historical roots to their recent extension beyond the electoral sphere. Drawing on extensive interviews, as well as on European and French legal documents, Praud and Dauphin show that although these reforms have not dramatically boosted women?s representation in the National Assembly, they have set in motion a process of feminization in the electoral sphere that bodes well for the future of parity democracy.JocElynE PrauD teaches in the departments of Political Science at Kwantlen Polytechnic University and Vancouver Island University. sanDrinE DauPhin is a researcher affiliated with the Centre de recherches sociologiques et politiques de Paris, a research laboratory of the Centre national de la recherche scientifique.new in PaPerbackJuly 2011, 204 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-1943-5 hc $85.00 978-0-7748-1944-2 Pb $32.95 978-0-7748-1945-9 library E-bookPolitical Science, European Politics,  Women?s StudiesParity DemocracyWomen?s Political Representation in Fifth Republic FranceJocelyne Praud and Sandrine Dauphin Authored by a team of Canada?s leading political scientists, the award-winning Canadian Democratic Audit represents one of the most ambitious examinations of Canadian democracy in recent political scholarship.

Citizens in general are disengaged from politics, and young people in particular are said to be adrift in a sea of apathy. Paul Howe examines patterns of participation and engagement from both the past and present, concluding that young Canadians are, in fact, increasingly detached from the political and civic life of the country. As Citizens Adrift shows, putting young people back on the path towards engaged citizenship requires a holistic approach, one which acknowledges that democratic engagement extends beyond the realm of formal politics.Paul hoWE is a professor of political science at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton.new in PaPerbackApril 2011, 360 pages, 6 x 9"57 graphs, 22 tables978-0-7748-1875-9 hc $95.00 978-0-7748-1876-6 Pb $34.95 978-0-7748-1877-3 library E-bookPolitical Science, Canadian Public Policy & Administration, Canadian Elections, Social Movements, Canadian Governmentcitizens adriftThe Democratic Disengagement of Young CanadiansPaul Howe 6      FALL 2011     |     order online @ www.ubcpress.calaw / environmentlaw / environmentcommunicationSInternational law evolved to protect human rights. But what are human rights? Does the term have the same meaning in a world being transformed by climate change and globalized trade? Are existing laws sufficient to ensure humanity?s survival? Westra argues that international law privileges individual over collective rights, permitting multinational corporations to overlook the collectivity and the environment in their quest for wealth. Unless policy makers redefine human rights and reformulate environmental law to protect the preconditions for life itself ? water, food, clean air, and biodiversity ? humankind faces the complete loss of the ecological commons, one of our most basic human rights.laura WEstra holds doctorates in both philosophy and jurisprudence, and has taught in the fields of philosophy, ethics, and environmental law at several US, Canadian, and Italian universities.new releaSeNovember 2011, 320 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-2117-9 hc $90.00 978-0-7748-2119-3 library E-bookLaw, Environmental Studies  human rightsThe Commons and the CollectiveLaura WestraThe right to a healthy environment has been the subject of extensive philosophical debates that revolve around the question: Should rights to clean air, water, and soil be entrenched in law?

While Canada?s courts have made progress in recognizing lesbian parenthood, some issues that are largely unique to planned lesbian families ? such as the legal status of known sperm donors and non-biological mothers ? remain undefined.

Queer theorists typically focus on sexual liberty but tend not to consider issues such as sexual violence; feminist theories focus on violence but often ignore the joy of sexuality. Craig examines the Supreme Court of Canada?s approach to sexuality to assess the possibility of devising a legal theory of sexuality that can embrace both the good and the bad, ensuring equality without assimilation, diversity without exclusion, and liberty without suffering. Blending feminist theory with queer theory, she advances an iconoclastic approach to law and sexuality that has the power to transform both theory and practice.ElainE craig is an assistant professor at Schulich School of Law, Dalhousie University.new releaSeNovember 2011, 208 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-2180-3 hc $85.00 978-0-7748-2182-7 library E-bookLaw, Sexuality Studies Law and Society Seriestroubling sexToward a Legal Theory of Sexual IntegrityElaine CraigWestward Bound debunks the myth of Canada?s peaceful West and its masculine conceptions of law and violence by focusing on criminal cases involving women between 1886 and 1940.

The struggles of these NGOs reveal not only the fragility but also the resilience of ideas about rights in liberal democracies.anDrEW s. thomPson is an adjunct assistant professor of political science at the University of Waterloo.new in PaPerbackJuly 2011, 224 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-1861-2  hc $85.00 978-0-7748-1862-9  Pb $32.95 978-0-7748-1863-6  library E-bookLaw & Society, History of Civil Liberties &  Human Rights, Canadian Social PolicyLaw and Society Seriesin Defence of PrinciplesNGOs and Human Rights in CanadaAndrew S.

Are non-Western societies adopting international standards, or are they adapting them to local norms and cultural values? This volume employs the paradigm of selective adaptation to explain the reception of international trade law in the Pacific Rim. Drawing on examples from China, Japan, Thailand, and North America, the contributors show that formal acceptance of international trade standards does not necessarily translate into uniform enforcement and acceptance at the local level. They offer compelling evidence that non-uniform compliance will be a legitimate outcome of the globalization of international trade law.Pitman b.

Patricia McCormack subverts this narrative of modernity by examining nation building from the perspective of a northern community and its residents. Fort Chipewyan, she argues, was never an isolated Aboriginal community but a plural society at the crossroads of global, national, and local forces. By tracing the events that led its Aboriginal residents to sign Treaty No. 8 and their struggle to maintain autonomy thereafter, this groundbreaking study shows that Aboriginal peoples and others can and have become modern without relinquishing cherished beliefs and practices.Patricia a. mccormack is an associate professor in the Faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta.new in PaPerbackJuly 2011, 408 pages, 6 x 9"47 b&w photos, 8 maps, 7 tables, 2 family trees978-0-7748-1668-7 hc $90.00 978-0-7748-1669-4 Pb $39.95 978-0-7748-1670-0 library E-bookAboriginal Studies, Canadian History, Alberta History, HistoriographyFort chipewyan and the shaping of canadian history, 1788?1920s?We like to be free in this country?Patricia A.

Shannon Stunden Bower brings to light the complexities of surface water management in Manitoba, from early artificial drainage efforts to late-twentieth-century attempts at watershed management. She engages scholarship on the state, liberalism, and bioregionalism in order to probe the connections between human and environmental change in the wet prairie. This account of an overlooked aspect of the region?s environmental history reveals how the biophysical nature of southern Manitoba has been an important factor in the formation of Manitoba society and the provincial state.shannon stunDEn boWEr is a SSHRC postdoctoral fellow in the Department of History and Classics at the University of Alberta.recently releaSedJune 2011, 232 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-1852-0 hc $85.00 978-0-7748-1854-4 library E-bookEnvironmental History, Resource Management,  Environmental Politics, Historical Geography, Canadian Urban & Regional PoliticsNature | History | Society Seriesorder online @ www.ubcpress.ca     |    FALL 2011     19 reSource managementenvironment / labour StudieSenvironmental HiStoryA firm grounding in economics is integral to sound forestry policies and practices.

Brinda Sarathy investigates how the US federal govern-ment came to be one of the country?s largest employers of Latino labour, and documents pinero wages and working conditions in com-parison to those of white forest labourers. Pinero exploitation, Sarathy argues, is the product of an ongoing history of institutionalized racism in the West. Overcoming this legacy depends on improving the visibility and working conditions of pineros and providing them with a stronger voice in immigration and forestry policy-making.brinDa sarathy is an assistant professor of environmental analysis at Pitzer College in Claremont, California.new releaSeNovember 2011, 168 pages, 6 x 9"8 photos, 12 graphs978-0-7748-2113-1 hc $85.00 978-0-7748-2115-5 library E-bookEnvironmental Studies, Resource Management, Ethnicity, Sociology of Work & Labour, Race & EthnicityPinerosLatino Labour and the Changing Face of Forestry in the Pacific NorthwestBrinda SarathyNational parks occupy a prominent place in the Canadian imagination, yet we are only beginning to understand how their visual representation has shaped and continues to inform our perceptions of ecological issues and the natural world.

The unique integration of continentality and humidity in this region favours the development of lush rainforest communities that incorporate both coastal and boreal elements. In British Columbia?s Inland Rainforest, scientists bring together, for the first time, a broad spectrum of information about this distinctive ecosystem. They also consider the ecological consequences of human activities in the rainforest and present strategies for its management and conservation.susan k. stEvEnson is an independent biologist and an adjunct professor at the University of Northern British Columbia. harolD m. armlEDEr, anDr? arsEnault, DarWyn coxson, s. craig Delong, and michaEl Jull all work in ecology and biology. new in PaPerbackJuly 2011, 456 pages, 6 x 9"48 colour photos, 30 b&w photos, 9 maps,  27 graphs, 20 tables978-0-7748-1849-0 hc $95.00 978-0-7748-1850-6 Pb $39.95 978-0-7748-1851-3 library E-bookResource Management, Environmental History, Environmental Politics, Forestrybritish columbia?s inland rainforestEcology, Conservation, and ManagementSusan K.

One of the first studies to investigate the role of the state in CSR, this book provides insight into the new governance model of private-public co-regulation emerging around the globe. Examining forest certification in Canada, the US, and Sweden, Lister draws on extensive interviews with experts to offer unique evidence on CSR governance, ultimately arguing the importance of CSR as a supplement to, rather than a substitute for, state regulation.JanE listEr is a postdoctoral fellow at the Liu Institute for Global Issues at the University of British Columbia.recently releaSedMay 2011, 304 pages, 6 x 9"38 figures, 48 tables978-0-7748-2033-2 hc $85.00 978-0-7748-2035-6 library E-bookResource Management, Environmental Ethics, Environmental Business & Economics, Environmental Law, Corporate Law, Environmental Politics, Forestrycorporate social responsibility and the stateInternational Approaches to Forest Co-RegulationJane Lister Three-quarters of Canada?s forests are under provincial control, so provincial forest policies are crucial to long-term sustainability. With its up-to-date comparative scrutiny of forest policies, this book provides forest managers, scholars, and students with the information and concepts to critically examine Canada?s complex for-est tenure systems. Looking at tenure, stump-age fees, and other forest practices, the authors assess how well different provincial schemes achieve the goals of sustainable forest manage-ment. They identify essential policy attributes that could be used to guide tenure reform, consider barriers that could prevent meaning-ful change, and offer much-needed practical guidance on overcoming these obstacles.martin k. luckErt is a professor in the Department of Rural Economy at the University of Alberta.

It also scrutinizes news coverage and PR activities during major Canadian operations at Dieppe, Sicily, and Normandy to reveal how the military used censorship and propaganda to rally support for the war effort.timothy balzEr has taught at the University of Victoria and for the Continuing Studies Division of the Royal Military College of Canada.new in PaPerbackJuly 2011, 272 pages, 6 x 9"22 b&w illustrations978-0-7748-1899-5 hc $85.00 978-0-7748-1900-8 Pb $32.95 978-0-7748-1901-5 library E-bookMedia Studies, Canadian History, Military HistoryStudies in Canadian Military History Series    Published in association with the Canadian  War Museumthe information FrontThe Canadian Army and News Management during the Second World WarTimothy Balzer Corps Commanders examines how five strikingly dissimilar British and Canadian generals fought battles and fit into the British Empire armies of the Second World War. The three Canadians controlled British formations and served under British army commanders, and the two Britons worked for and led Canadians as well. Such inter-army adjustments were fairly simple because all Anglo-Canadian commanders and staffs spoke the military language of the Camberley and Quetta staff colleges. Gunners from Montreal understood guardsmen from London ? no small advantage when coordinating coalition battles involving thousands of troops.

Their resistance was unexpected and runs against the grain of mainstream accounts of Asian exclusion, which tend to ignore the agency of the excluded. In Contesting White Supremacy Timothy Stanley combines Chinese sources and perspectives with an innovative theory of racism and anti-racism to explain the strike and construct an alternative reading of racism in British Columbia. His work demonstrates that education was an arena in which white supremacy confronted Chinese nationalist schooling and where parents and students contested racism by constructing a new category ? Chinese Canadian ? to define their identity.timothy J. stanlEy is a professor of anti-racism education and education foundations at the Faculty of Education, University of Ottawa.new in PaPerbackJuly 2011, 344 pages, 6 x 9"16 b&w illustrations, 2 maps978-0-7748-1931-2  hc $95.00 978-0-7748-1932-9  Pb $34.95 978-0-7748-1933-6  library E-bookAsian Canadian Studies, Education History, Race & Ethnicity, BC History, Canadian Social History, Asian Diaspora, Historiographycontesting White supremacySchool Segregation, Anti-Racism, and the Making of Chinese CanadiansTimothy J.

Helen Schneider unsettles this assumption by revealing how Chinese women helped to build a nation, one family at a time. From the 1920s to the early 1950s, home economists transformed the most fundamental of political spaces ? the home ? by teaching women to nurture ideal families and manage projects of social reform. Although their discipline came undone after 1949, it created a legacy of gendered professionalism and reinforced the idea that leaders should shape domestic rituals of the people.hElEn m. schnEiDEr is an assistant professor at Virginia Tech and a research associate at the University of Oxford.recently releaSedFebruary 2011, 336 pages, 6 x 9"16 photos, 1 map978-0-7748-1997-8  hc $85.00 978-0-7748-1999-2  library E-bookChinese Studies, Women?s Studies,  Education HistoryContemporary Chinese Studies Serieskeeping the nation?s houseDomestic Management and the Making of Modern ChinaHelen M.

Although the Communists, contemporary observers, and more recent scholarship have all depicted rural society as feudal and these educational reforms a failure, Elizabeth VanderVen draws on untapped archival materials to show that villagers and local officials capably integrated foreign ideas and models into a system that was at once traditional and modern, Chinese and Western. Her portrait of education reform both challenges received notions about the modernity-tradition binary in Chinese history, and addresses topics central to debates on modern China, including state-making and the impact of global ideas on local society.ElizabEth r. vanDErvEn is an assistant professor in the History Department at Rutgers University, Camden.new releaSeNovember 2011, 240 pages, 6 x 9"14 illustrations (2 maps and 12 tables)978-0-7748-2176-6 hc $85.00 978-0-7748-2178-0 library E-bookAsian History, Chinese Studies, Education History Contemporary Chinese Studies Seriesa school in Every villageEducational Reform in a Northeast China County, 1904?31Elizabeth R. VanderVenThe lives of early Japanese and Chinese settlers in British Columbia have come to define the Asian experience in Canada. Yet many men travelled beyond British Columbia to settle in small Prairie towns and cities. Chinese bachelors opened the region?s first laundries and Chinese cafes. They maintained ties to the Old World and negotiated a place in the new by fostering a vibrant homosocial culture based on friendship, everyday religious practices, the example of Sun Yat-sen, and the sharing of food. This exploration of the intersection of gender and migration in rural Canada, in particular, offers new takes on the Chinese quest for identity in North America in general.

Feng Rui, a Western-educated agricultural expert, introduced modern sugar milling to China in the 1930s as a key component in a provincial investment program. Before long, however, he was accused of colluding with smugglers to pass foreign sugar off as a domestic product. Emily Hill makes the case that Feng was, in fact, a scapegoat in a multi-sided power struggle in which political leaders vied with commercial players for access to China?s markets and tax revenues.Emily m. hill is an associate professor of history at Queen?s University.new in PaPerbackNovember 2011, 336 pages, 6 x 9"5 b&w illustrations, 2 maps, 22 tables978-0-7748-1653-3  hc $85.00 978-0-7748-1654-0  Pb $32.95 978-0-7748-1655-7  library E-bookChinese Studies, Asian HistoryContemporary Chinese Studies Seriessmokeless sugarThe Death of a Provincial Bureaucrat and the Construction of  China?s National EconomyEmily M.

Yet there has never been clear understanding of how wartime suffering has defined the nation and shaped its people. In Beyond Suffering, a distinguished group of Chinese historians draws on often fragmentary accounts of nearly forgotten incidents to piece together the multiple fronts ? social, institutional, and cultural ? on which wars have been fought, experienced, and remembered. From the Blagoveshchensk Massacre to the trials of the Jiangxi Number One Children?s Home, these accounts of war-inflicted suffering bring us closer to understanding war and militarism in China.JamEs Flath is an associate professor in the Department of History at the University of Western Ontario and author of The Cult of Happiness. norman smith is an associate professor in the Department of History at the University of Guelph.  recently releaSedMay 2011, 328 pages, 6 x 9"5 b&w photos, 2 maps, 3 tables978-0-7748-1955-8  hc $85.00 978-0-7748-1957-2  library E-bookChinese Studies, Asian History, Military HistoryContemporary  Chinese Studies Seriesbeyond sufferingRecounting War in Modern ChinaEdited by James Flath and Norman Smith When the Chinese Communist Party came to power in 1949, Mao Zedong declared that ?not even one person shall die of hunger.?

Doak Japan has had three Catholic prime ministers, and its current empress was raised and educated in the faith. How did a non-Christian nation come to foster more Catholic leaders than the United States, particularly when Protestantism is said to define Christianity in Japan and Catholicism is believed to be but a fleeting element of Japan?s so-called Christian century? This volume reveals that, far from being a relic of the past ? something brought to Japan by missionaries and then forgotten ? Catholicism offered, and continues to provide, an authentic and alternative way for Japanese believers to maintain ?tradition? and negotiate modernity.kEvin m.

In Moving Mountains, anthropologists, geographers, and political economists with first-hand experience in the region explore these peoples? survival strategies, as they respond to unprecedented economic and political change. Although highland peoples are typically represented as marginalized and powerless, this volume argues that ethnic minorities draw on culture and ethnicity to indigenize modernity and maintain their livelihoods. This unprecedented glimpse into a poorly understood region shows that development initiatives must be built on strong knowledge of local cultures in order to have lasting effect.JEan michauD is a professor in the Department of Anthropology at Universit?
