Along with a compelling analysis of Aboriginal, legal, and anthropological concepts of fact and evidence,  Oral History on Trial traces the long trajectory of oral history from community to court, and off ers a sophisticated critique of the Crown’s use of Aboriginal materials in key cases. A bold intervention in legal and anthropological scholarship,  Oral History on Trial presents a powerful argument for a reconsideration of the Crown’s approach to oral history. brUCE GrANVillE millEr is a professor of anthropology at the University of British Columbia.  neW release  May 2011 ,  192 pages,  6 x 9 "  978-0-7748-2070-7   hC  $85.00  978-0-7748-2072-1   librAry E-book  Aboriginal Studies ,  Aboriginal History ,  Anthropology, Canadian Legal History ,  Law & Society    First-hand accounts of Indigenous people’s encounters with colonialism are rare. A daily diary that extends over fi ft y years is unparalleled. Based on a transcription of Arthur Wellington Clah’s diaries, this book off ers a riveting account of a Tsimshian elder who moved in both colonial and Aboriginal worlds. From his birth in 1831 to his death in 1916, Clah witnessed profound change: the arrival of traders, missionaries, and miners, and the establishment of industrial fi sheries, wage labour, and reserves. His many voyages – physical, cultural, and spiritual – provide an unprecedented Aboriginal perspective on colonial relationships on the Pacifi c Northwest Coast. pEGGy broCk is professor emeritus, Edith Cowan University, Perth, and distinguished visiting professor at the University of Adelaide.  neW release  April 2011 ,  320 pages,  6 x 9 "  17 photographs, 4 maps  978-0-7748-2005-9   hC  $95.00  978-0-7748-2007-3   librAry E-book  Aboriginal Studies ,  Canadian Social History ,  BC History ,  Biography, Memoirs & Letters   In this innovative exploration, told-to narratives, or collaboratively produced texts by Aboriginal storytellers and (usually) non- Aboriginal writers, are not romanticized as unmediated translations of oral documents, nor are they dismissed as corruptions of original works. Rather, the approach emphasizes the interpenetration of authorship and collaboration. Focused on the 1990s, when debates over voice and representation were particularly explosive, this captivating study examines a range of told-to narratives in conjunction with key political events that have shaped the struggle for Aboriginal rights to reveal how these narratives impact larger debates about Indigenous voice and literary and political sovereignty. sophiE mcCAll teaches in the English Department at Simon Fraser University.  neW release  May 2011 ,  256 pages,  6 x 9 "  978-0-7748-1979-4   hC  $85.00  978-0-7748-1981-7   librAry E-book  Aboriginal Studies ,  Social & Cultural Anthropology ,  Canadian Literature   The  many Voyages of Arthur Wellington Clah  a tsimshian man on the Pacific northwest Coast  Peggy Brock  First person plural  aboriginal Storytelling and the ethics of Collaborative authorship  Sophie McCall 2      SPRING 2011     |     order online @ www.ubcpress.ca Political science aBoriGinal studies aBoriGinal studies aB riGinal studi s order online @ www.ubcpress.ca     |    SPRING 2011     3  Hunters, medicine men, and missionaries continue to dominate images and narratives of the West, even though historians have recognized women’s role as colonizer and colonized since the 1980s. Kristin Burnett helps to correct this imbalance by presenting colonial medicine as a gendered phenomenon. Although the imperial eye focused on medicine men, Aboriginal women in the Treaty 7 region served as healers and caregivers – to their own people and to settler society – until the advent of settler-run hospitals and nursing stations. By revealing Aboriginal and settler women’s contributions to health care,  Taking Medicine challenges traditional understandings of colonial medicine in the contact zone. krisTiN bUrNETT is a member of the Department of History at Lakehead University.  recently released  October 2010 ,  248 pages,  6 x 9 "  15 b&w photographs, 1 map  978-0-7748-1828-5   hC  $85.00  978-0-7748-1830-8   librAry E-book  Aboriginal Studies ,  Women’s Studies ,  Aboriginal Health ,  Aboriginal History ,  Alberta History  Women and indiGenouS StudieS SerieS  Taking medicine  Women’s Healing Work and Colonial Contact in Southern alberta, 1880–1930  Kristin Burnett Being Again of One Mind combines a critical reading of feminist literature on nationalism with the narratives of Oneida women of various generations to reveal that some Indigenous women view nationalism in the form of decolonization as a way to restore traditional gender balance and well-being to their own lives and communities. Th ese insights challenge mainstream feminist ideas about the masculine bias of Western theories of nation and about the dangers of nationalist movements that idealize women’s so-called traditional role, questioning whether they apply to Indigenous women. liNA sUNsEri , whose Longhouse name is Yeliwi:saks (Gathering Stories/Knowledge), from the Oneida Nation of the Th ames, Turtle Clan, is an assistant professor of sociology at Brescia University College, an affi  liate of the University of Western Ontario.  recently released  November 2010 ,  216 pages,  6 x 9 "  978-0-7748-1935-0   hC  $85.00  978-0-7748-1937-4   librAry E-book  Aboriginal Studies ,  Women’s Studies ,  Aboriginal History ,  Sociology, Political Science  Women and indiGenouS StudieS SerieS   being Again of one mind  oneida Women and the Struggle for decolonization  Lina Sunseri, Foreword by Patricia A.

Indigenous Women and Feminism proposes that a dynamic new line of inquiry – Indigenous feminism – is necessary to truly engage with the crucial issues of cultural identity, nationalism, and decolonization particular to Indigenous contexts. Th rough the lenses of politics, activism, and culture, this wide-ranging collection crosses disciplinary, national, academic, and activist boundaries to explore deeply the unique political and social positions of Indigenous women. A vital and sophisticated discussion, these timely essays will change the way we think about modern feminism and Indigenous women.

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 thereaft er, 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.  recently released  December 2010 ,  408 pages,  6 x 9 "  47 b&w photos, 8 maps, 7 tables, 2 family trees  978-0-7748-1668-7   hC  $90.00  978-0-7748-1670-0   librAry E-book  Aboriginal Studies ,  Canadian History ,  Alberta History ,  Historiography   Fort Chipewyan and the shaping of Canadian history, 1788–1920s  “We like to be free in this country”  Patricia A. McCormack  In 2008, Canada established a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to mend the deep rift s between Aboriginal peoples and the settler society that created Canada’s notorious residential school system.  Unsettling the Settler Within argues that non-Aboriginal Canadians must undergo their own process of decolonization in order to truly participate in the transformative possibilities of reconciliation. Settlers must relinquish the persistent myth of themselves as peacemakers and acknowledge the destructive legacy of a society that has stubbornly ignored and devalued Indigenous experience.

How did homosexuality – an act that had for centuries been defi ned as criminal and abominable – come to be sanctioned by law? In  Judging Homosexuals, Patrice Corriveau fi nds answers in a comparative analysis of gay persecution in France and Quebec. By tracing over time how various groups – family and clergy, doctors and jurists – tried to manage people who were defi ned in turn as sinners, as criminals, as inverts, and as citizens deserving of protection, this book shows how the law helped construct the crime. pATriCE CorriVEAU is an associate professor in the Department of Criminology at the University of Ottawa.  kÄThE roTh has been a literary translator, working mainly in historical non- fi ction, for more than twenty years.  neW release  February 2011 ,  224 pages,  6 x 9 "  7 tables, 1 map  978-0-7748-1720-2   hC  $ 85.00  978-0-7748-1722-6   librAry E-book  Gender & Sexuality Studies ,  Socio-legal Studies ,  Queer Studies ,  Criminology ,  Social Movements  SeXuaLitY StudieS SerieS  Judging homosexuals  a History of Gay Persecution in Quebec and France  Patrice Corriveau, Translated by Käthe Roth  In 1899 the Canadian government passed legislation to replace Mi’kmaw political practices with the triennial system, a Euro-Canadian system of democratic band council elections. Offi  cials in Ottawa assumed the federally mandated and supervised system would redefi ne Mi’kmaw politics. Th ey were wrong. Many Mi’kmaw communities rejected or amended the legislation, while others accepted it only sporadically to meet specifi c community needs and goals. Compelling and timely, this book supports Aboriginal claims to self-governance and complicates understandings of state power by showing that the Mi’kmaw retained political practices that distinguished them from their Euro-Canadian neighbours. mArThA EliZAbETh WAlls teaches Canadian, Atlantic Canadian, and First Nations history.  neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  216 pages,  6 x 9 "  9 b&w photos, 16 tables, 1 map 978-0-7748-1789-9  hC $85.00  978-0-7748-1790-5   pb  $29.95  978-0-7748-1791-2   librAry E-book  Aboriginal Studies ,  Canadian History ,  Aboriginal Politics & Policy ,  Atlantic Provinces ,  Political Science  No need of a chief for this band  the maritime mi’kmaq and Federal electoral Legislation, 1899–1951  Martha Elizabeth Walls  Following the removal of the grey whale from the Endangered Species list in 1994, the Makah tribe of northwest Washington State and the Nuu-chah-nulth Nation of British Columbia announced that they would revive their whale hunts.

Michel Beaulieu returns northern Ontario to its rightful place as a birthplace of left ism in Canada by exposing the conditions that gave rise to an array of left -wing organizations. Cultural ties among workers helped bring left -wing ideas to Canada, but ethnicity weakened the left  as each group developed a distinctive vocabulary of socialism and as Anglo-Celtic workers defended their privileges against Finns, Ukrainians, and Italians. At the Lakehead, ethnic diff erence oft en outweighed class solidarity – at the cost of a stronger labour movement for Canada. miChEl s. bEAUliEU is the director of the Centre for Northern Studies and an associate professor of history at Lakehead University.  neW release  May 2011 ,  280 pages,  6 x 9 "  2 maps  978-0-7748-2001-1   hC  $85.00  978-0-7748-2003-5   librAry E-book  Canadian Labour History , Ontario History   labour at the lakehead  ethnicity, Socialism, and Politics, 1900–35  Michel S. Beaulieu  A controversial sport, rodeo is oft en seen as emblematic of the West’s reputation as a “white man’s country.”  A Wilder West complicates this view, showing how rodeo was an important contact zone – a chaotic and unpredictable place of encounter – that challenged expected social hierarchies. Rodeo brought people together across racial and gender divides, creating friendships, rivalries, and unexpected intimacies. Fans made hometown cowboys, cowgirls, and Aboriginal riders local heroes. Lavishly illustrated, this creative history returns to rodeo’s small-town roots to shed light on the history of social relations in Canada’s western frontier. mAry-EllEN kElm is a Canada Research Chair in the Department of History at Simon Fraser University.  neW release  May 2011 ,  256 pages,  6 x 9 "  52 b&w photos, 3 maps  978-0-7748-2029-5   hC  $85.00  978-0-7748-2031-8   librAry E-book  Canadian Social History ,  Communication & Cultural Studies ,  Canadian Aboriginal History ,  Women’s History   A  Wilder West  rodeo in Western Canada  Mary-Ellen Kelm  Th e experience of walking down a store aisle – replete with displays, sales people, and infi nite choice – is so common we oft en forget retail has a short history.

Th e Practice of Execution in Canada is not about what led some to the gallows and others to escape it. Rather, it examines how the routine rituals and practices of execution can be seen as a crucial social institution. Drawing on hundreds of case fi les, Ken Leyton-Brown shows that from trial to interment, the practice of execution was constrained by law and tradition. Despite this, however, the institution was not rigid. Criticism and reform pushed executions out of the public eye, and in so doing, stripped them of meaningful ritual and made them more vulnerable to criticism. kEN lEyToN-broWN is an associate professor in the History Department at the University of Regina.  neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  216 pages,  6 x 9 " 978-0-7748-1753-0  hC $85.00  978-0-7748-1754-7   pb  $32.95  978-0-7748-1755-4   librAry E-book  Canadian History ,  Legal History ,  Law & Society ,  Socio-legal Studies    The  practice of Execution in Canada  Ken Leyton-Brown  In  Acts of Occupation historians Cavell and Noakes deliver the engrossing story of Canada’s early days of Arctic policy.

With a focus on the materiality of image, text, and artefact, the essays gathered here argue that every act of memory making is simultaneously an act of forgetting; every place memorialized is accompanied by places forgotten.

Heather McGregor assesses developments in the history of education in four periods – the traditional, the colonial (1945-70), the territorial (1971-81), and the local (1982-99). She concludes that education is most successful when Inuit involvement and local control support a system refl ecting Inuit culture and visions. hEAThEr E. mcGrEGor is a researcher who currently works for the public service in Nunavut.  neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  224 pages,  6 x 9 "  9 b&w photos, 1 map 978-0-7748-1744-8  hC $85.00  978-0-7748-1745-5   pb  $32.95  978-0-7748-1746-2   librAry E-book  History ,  Aboriginal Education ,  Aboriginal Politics & Policy , Northern Studies,  Educational Policy & Th eory   inuit Education and schools in the Eastern Arctic  Heather E.

Th ey develop a comprehensive research agenda both to help students learn about the past and to understand how we construct history from its infi nite possibilities. pENNEy ClArk is an associate professor in the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy at the University of British Columbia and director of the History Education Network/Histoire et éducation en réseau.  neW release  June 2011 ,  352 pages,  6 x 9 "  978-0-7748-2058-5   hC  $85.00  978-0-7748-2060-8   librAry E-book  History ,  Education ,  Educational Policy & Th eory ,  Education History ,  Historiography  New possibilities for the past  Shaping History education in Canada  Penney Clark  Th roughout history, Western women have inhabited a conceptual space divorced from the world of business. But women have always engaged in business.  Th e Business of Women explores the world of those women who embraced British Columbia’s frontier ethos in the early twentieth-century. In this detailed examination of case studies and quantitative sources, Buddle reveals that, contrary to expectation, the typical businesswoman was not unmarried or particularly rebellious, but a woman reconciling her entrepreneurship with her identity as a wife, mother, or widow. Th is groundbreaking study not only incorporates women into the history of business, it challenges commonly held beliefs about women, business, and the marriage between the two. mElANiE bUDDlE teaches history and works as an academic advisor at Trent University.  neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  224 pages,  6 x 9 "  5 b&w photos, 6 tables 978-0-7748-1813-1  hC $85.00  978-0-7748-1814-8   pb  $32.95  978-0-7748-1815-5   librAry E-book  Canadian Social History ,  BC History ,  Business, Industry & Economics ,  Women’s Studies    The  business of Women  marriage, Family, and entrepreneurship in British Columbia, 1901–51  Melanie Buddle 8      SPRING 2011     |     order online @ www.ubcpress.ca order online @ www.ubcpress.ca     |    SPRING 2011     9 military history military history military history  In wartime, capturing the hearts and minds of the citizenry is arguably as important as victory on the battlefi eld.

Combining military and labour history with the social history of BC, Quebec, and Russia, Benjamin Isitt examines how the Siberian Expedition exacerbated tensions within Canadian society at a time when a radicalized working class, many French-Canadians, and even the soldiers themselves objected to a military adventure designed to counter the Russian Revolution. Th e result is a highly readable and provocative work that challenges public memory of the First World War while illuminating tensions – both in Canada and worldwide – that shaped the course of twentieth-century history. bENJAmiN isiTT is a historian specializing in twentieth-century Canadian and world history, with an emphasis on labour, social movements, and the process of cultural change.  neW in PaPerBacK  November 2010 ,  352 pages,  6 x 9 "  37 b&w photos, 5 maps 978-0-7748-1801-8  hC $85.00  978-0-7748-1802-5   pb  $29.95  978-0-7748-1803-2   librAry E-book  Military History ,  Canadian Social History ,  European History, Labour History  StudieS in Canadian miLitarY HiStorY SerieS Published in association with the Canadian War Museum  From Victoria to Vladivostok  Canada’s Siberian expedition, 1917–19  Benjamin Isitt  Th is cultural history of the amateur military tradition traces the origins of the citizen soldier ideal from long before Canadians donned khaki and boarded troopships for the Western Front.

Offi  cials have endlessly debated the implications – at home and abroad – of participation. Drawing on previously classifi ed government documents and interviews with senior offi  cials, James Fergusson off ers the fi rst full account of Canada’s unsure response to US initiatives. He reveals that factors such as weak leadership and a tendency to place uncertain and ill-defi ned notions of international peace and security before national defence have resulted in indecision. In the end, policy-makers have failed to transform the ballistic missile defence issue into an opportunity to defi ne Canada’s strategic interests at home and on the world stage. JAmEs G.

Marshall  In 1922-23, Chinese students in Victoria, BC, went on strike to protest a school board’s attempt to impose segregation. Th eir 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 defi ne their identity.

Th is campaign was part of a wide-ranging reform program to eliminate prostitution, eradicate drinking, spread Christianity, and improve the lives of women. As Elizabeth Dorn Lublin shows, members did not passively accept and propagate government policy but felt a duty to shape it by defi ning social problems and infl uencing opinion. Certain their beliefs and reforms were essential to Japan’s advancement, members couched their calls for change in the rhetorical language of national progress. Ultimately, the WCTU’s activism belies received notions of women’s public involvement and political engagement in Meiji Japan.

Th is 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 is the Skelton-Clark Postdoctoral Fellow at Queen’s University.  neW release  May 2011 ,  224 pages,  6 x 9 "  978-0-7748-2097-4   hC  $85.00  978-0-7748-2099-8   librAry E-book  Political Science ,  Canadian Federal Politics ,  Provincial Politics ,  Canadian Government ,  Canadian Political Parties & Elections   Grassroots liberals  organizing for Local and national Politics  Royce Koop  Post-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 infl uenced the commitment to freedom in other liberal democracies? Addressing security certifi cates to 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 reconfi guration of its structures with an emphasis on security. She traces how the logic and practices of security are increasingly coming to defi ne our rights and freedoms.

In this remarkable comparative study, expert authors explore the tenacity of anti-gay sentiment, as well as the dramatic shift s in public attitudes towards queer groups across all faith communities in both the United States and Canada. Th ey conclude that, despite the ongoing confl ict, religious adherence does not invariably entail opposition to the political acknowledgment of queer rights.

Building on these observations, 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.  recently released  November 2010 ,  360 pages,  6 x 9 "  57 graphs, 22 tables  978-0-7748-1875-9   hC  $95.00  978-0-7748-1877-3   librAry E-book  Political Science ,  Canadian Public Policy & Administration ,  Canadian Elections ,  Social Movements ,  Canadian Government    Citizens Adrift  the democratic disengagement of Young Canadians  Paul Howe  Politics on the Canadian prairies are puzzling. Th e 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 Wesley explains this paradox by looking at the rhetoric employed by dominant parties to renew their provinces’ political code: freedom for Alberta, security for Saskatchewan, and moderation for Manitoba. Although the content of their campaigns diff ered, leaders from William Aberhart to Tommy Douglas to Gary Doer have employed distinct codes to ensure their parties’ success and shape their provinces’ political landscapes.

In 2008, opposition leaders were prepared to defeat the Conservative Party over its proposal to eliminate public subsidies to parties. In this book, prominent political scientists explore the underlying issues that led to the showdown. Are publicly funded parties compatible with democracy? What eff ect has party fi nance reform had on elections and on the balance of power between parties and donors and between national parties and local organizations? Contributors show that campaign fi nance reforms have shaped party organization and electoral competition, contributing to successive minority governments. lisA yoUNG is a professor of political science at the University of Calgary.  hArolD J.

What does citizenship mean in an era of heightened tension between global capitalism and the nation-state? Building on Foucault’s concept of biopolitics and an examination of national border and detention policies, Rygiel argues that citizenship is becoming a globalizing regime to govern mobility. Th e new regime is deepening boundaries based on race, class, and gender, and causing Western nations to embrace a more technocratic, depoliticized understanding of citizenship. kim ryGiEl is an assistant professor of political science at Wilfrid Laurier University and co-editor of  (En)Gendering the War on Terror: War Stories and Camoufl aged Politics  neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  272 pages,  6 x 9 "  978-0-7748-1804-9   hC  $85.00  978-0-7748-1805-6   pb  $34.95  978-0-7748-1806-3   librAry E-book  International Political Science ,  Globalization ,  Security Studies,  Socio-legal Studies,  Race & Transnationalism in Politics ,  International Relations    Globalizing Citizenship  Kim Rygiel  In 1999 and 2000, France adopted laws to ensure equal access to elected offi  ce for women and men.  Parity Democracy explores the evolution and infl uence 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.

Th is book showcases the work of scholars who employ a broad defi nition of culture to trace how issues of cultural autonomy have played out in various arenas, including literary criticism, Indigenous societies, the Slow Food movement, and skateboarding culture. Although they focus on the marginalized issue of autonomy, they reveal that globalization has both limited as well as created new forms of cultural autonomy. pETrA rEThmANN is an associate professor in the Department of Anthropology at McMaster University.  imrE sZEmAN is Canada Research Chair in Cultural Studies and a professor of English and fi lm studies at the University of Alberta.

Th is 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.  neW release  April 2011 ,  232 pages,  6 x 9 "  10 b&w photos, 9 maps  978-0-7748-1852-0   hC  $85.00  978-0-7748-1854-4   librAry E-book  Environmental History ,  Resource Management ,  Environmental Politics ,  Historical Geography ,  Canadian Urban & Regional Politics  nature | HiStorY | SoCietY SerieS  Wet prairie  People, Land, and Water in agricultural manitoba  Shannon Stunden Bower 24      SPRING 2011     |     order online @ www.ubcpress.ca order online @ www.ubcpress.ca     |    SPRING 2011     25 ornitholoGy enVironmental history urBan studies & PlanninG  Suburbanization, aff ordable housing, mass transportation, loss of fertile lands – these are modern problems, yet they are not new. Th omas Adams grappled with these same issues nearly a century ago, when he wrote  Rural Planning and Development, a book that quickly became Canada’s planning bible. Reprinted for the fi rst time and updated with commentaries by leading Canadian planners, this book highlights Adams’ infl uence on the planning profession and the continued relevance of his comprehensive vision for planning – to move beyond the demands of the moment to embrace long-term strategies for building stronger rural communities.

Managed Annihilation makes the case that the idea of natural resource management itself was the problem. Th e collapse occurred when the fi sheries were state-managed and still, two decades later, there is no recovery in sight. Although the collapse raised doubts among policy-makers about their ability to understand and control nature, their ultimate goal of control through management has not wavered and has been transferred from wild fi sh to fi shermen and farmed cod.

Although the media focused on the disaster’s immediate eff ects, the long- term reconstruction eff orts have gone largely unexplored.

Sex and the Revitalized City examines the truth of these claims by exploring the phenomenon from the perspective of women condo owners and planners and developers. Th is fresh perspective on urban revitalization reveals that condo ownership is not freeing women from constraints – neoliberal ideologies are remaking women’s relationship with the city in the image of fast capital and consumer citizenship. Women’s emancipation through condominium ownership is a marketing ploy rather than a major shift  in gender relations. lEsliE kErN is an assistant professor of women’s studies at Mount Allison University.  neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  224 pages,  6 x 9 "  13 b&w photos 978-0-7748-1822-3  hC $85.00  978-0-7748-1823-0   pb  $32.95  978-0-7748-1824-7   librAry E-book  Urban Studies & Planning ,  Women’s Studies ,  Sociology of Gender    sex and the revitalized City  Gender, Condominium development, and urban Citizenship  Leslie Kern  Urban sprawl – low-density subdivisions and business parks, big box stores and mega-malls – has increasingly come to defi ne city growth despite decades of planning and policy.

It goes unsaid, however, that the advice is based on an outmoded and unrealistic ideal. Th is provocative volume challenges the notion – oft en off ered in support of neoliberal agendas – that paid work (employment) and unpaid work (caregiving and housework) are separate and competing spheres, rather than overlapping aspects of a single existence. Alternative approaches to integrating work and family must be taken into account if we hope to build truly equitable family and childcare policies.

Analysis of the diffi  culties encountered and the ultimate failure of truth commissions in Uganda and Haiti reveals that acknowledgement of past violence – by both victims and perpetrators – must come before goals such as forgiveness and social cohesion if reconciliation is to be achieved.

But when one asks –  who consented? how? to what type of community? – consent becomes very elusive, more myth than reality. In  Between Consenting Peoples leading scholars in legal and political theory examine the di erent ways in which consent has been used to justify political communities and the authority of law, especially in Indigenous-nonindigenous relations.  ey explore the kind of consent – the kind of attachment – that might ground political community and establish a fair relationship between Indigenous and nonindigenous peoples.

Th ere has, however, been no systematic attempt to identify general theories about Canada’s constitutional evolution. Patrick James corrects this oversight. By adding clarity to familiar debates, this succinct assessment of major writings on constitutional politics sharpens our vision of the past – and the future – of the Canadian federation. pATriCk JAmEs is a professor of international relations and director of the Center for International Studies at the University of Southern California.  neW in PaPerBacK  January 2011 ,  200 pages,  6 x 9 "  9 b&w fi gures 978-0-7748-1786-8  hC $85.00  978-0-7748-1787-5   pb  $32.95  978-0-7748-1788-2   librAry E-book  Constitutional Law ,  Political Science ,  Canadian Federal Politics  LaW and SoCietY SerieS  Courts of law at once refl ect and shape the society in which they reside and dispense justice. To mark the 2010 centenary of the British Columbia Court of Appeal, this book presents an institutional, jurisprudential, and biographical account of the court and its evolving role in the province. Richly illustrated and replete with group portraits of judges and accounts of key cases, this authoritative history explores how the court came into being, how it has operated, and who its judges have been. In the process, it tells the story of how the court has shaped – and been shaped by – the social, political, and legal development of British Columbia.
