This volume records and scrutinizes the history of how and why this has come about. A work of critical historiography, it makes accessible for the first time in one place a broad selection of the 250 years of writing on Northwest Coast art. Organized thematically, the excerpted texts are from both published and unpublished sources, some not previously available in English. The contributors  ? leading scholars, writers, and artists ? provide perspectives on the diverse intellectual traditions that have influenced, stimulated, and clashed with each other. In un-settling the conventions that have shaped ?the idea of Northwest Coast Native art,? this book joins the lively, often heated, and now global, debates about what constitutes Native art and who should decide.Un-settles and re-thinks received ideas about Native art on the Northwest Coast and, by implication, elsewhere.provides a history of ideas, opinions, and arguments that have shaped and disputed Northwest Coast Native art.Written by leading Indigenous and non-Indigenous historians, art historians, anthropologists, legal experts, artists, and holders of traditional Indigenous knowledge.Will be of interest to scholars in a variety of disciplines as well as to general and international readers.CHARLOTTE TOWNSEND-GAULT is a professor in the Department of Art History and Visual Art at the University of British Columbia.

Instead, there is a tendency to frame rural and remote locations as emblematic of authentic or ?real? Indigeneity. While such a perspective may support Indigenous struggles for territory and recognition, it fails to account for large swaths of contemporary Indigenous realities, not the least of which is the increased presence of Indigenous people in cities. The contributors to this volume explore the implications of urbanization on the production of distinctive Indigenous identities. In doing so, they demonstrate the resilience, creativity, and complexity of the urban Indigenous presence, both in Canada and internationally.

By the mid-seventeenth century, however, Wendat society was threatened by European disease and Iroquois attacks. Dispersed but Not Destroyed depicts the creation of a powerful Wendat diaspora in the wake of their dispersal and throughout the latter half of the century. Turning the story of the Wendat conquest on its head, this book demonstrates the resiliency of the Wendat Confederacy and its people and writes a new chapter in Canadian history.

Indigenous Encounters with Neoliberalism explores how this issue is playing out in two countries very differently marked by neoliberalism?s local expressions ? Canada and Mexico. Weaving together four distinct case studies, this book presents insights from Indigenous feminism, critical geography, political economy, and post-colonial studies. These examples highlight Indigenous people?s responses to neo-liberalism, reflecting the tensions that result from how Indigenous identity, gender, and the environment have been connected.

They also recognize that long-lasting change depends on effective leadership. This collection showcases innovative research and leadership practices from diverse nations and tribes in Canada, the United States, and New Zealand. The contributors use storytelling to highlight the distinctive nature of Indigenous leadership, which finds its most powerful expression in embodied concepts such as land, story, ancestors, and elders. These vibrant narratives give a voice to the wives, mothers, and grandmothers who are using their knowledge to mend hearts and minds and to build strong communities.

Working collaboratively, Robertson and Cook?s descendants draw on oral histories and textual records to create a nuanced portrait of a high-ranked woman, a cultural mediator, devout Christian, and Aboriginal rights activist who criticized potlatch practices of her day. This powerful meditation on historical and contemporary colonialism documents how the Kwagu?? Gixsam have revived their long-dormant clan in the hopes of forging a positive cultural identity for future generations through feasting and potlatching.  LESLIE A. ROBERTSON is an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology and the Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice at the University of British Columbia. The  KWAGU??

Elders documented their peoples? history and worldview, passing them on through storytelling. Language loss, however, threatens to break the bonds of knowledge transmission. At the request of the Doig River First Nations, anthropologists Robin and Jillian Ridington present a history of the Dane-zaa people based on oral histories collected over a half century of fieldwork. These powerful stories not only preserve traditional knowledge for future generations, they also tell the inspiring story of how the Dane-zaa learned to succeed and flourish in the modern world.

Bruce Morito offers a philosophical re-reading of the historical record of negotiations, showing that the parties developed an ethic of mutually recognized respect. This ethic, Morito argues, remains relevant to current debates about Aboriginal and treaty rights because it is neither culturally nor historically bound. Real change is possible, if efforts can be shifted from piecemeal legal and political disputes to the development of an intercultural ethic based on trust, respect, and solidarity.

In this groundbreaking volume, leading scholars offer a multidisciplinary perspective on how unequal power relations influence the ability of Aboriginal people in Canada to implement their own visions for sport. The diverse analyses illuminate how Aboriginal people employ sport as a venue through which to assert their cultural identities and find a positive space for themselves and upcoming generations in contemporary Canadian society.

How and why did these villages come into being? Why were they abandoned? In search of answers to these questions, Prentiss and Kuijt take readers on a voyage of discovery into the ancient history of the St??t?imc, or Upper Lillooet, a people whose struggles and successes are brought to vivid life through photographs, artistic and fictionalized reconstructions of life in the villages, and discussions of evidence from archaeological surveys and excavations.

What compelled these men to embrace Christianity? How did they reconcile being both Christian and Indigenous in an age of empire? Tolly Bradford finds answers to these questions in the lives of Henry Budd, a Cree missionary from western Canada, and Tiyo Soga, a Xhosa missionary from southern Africa. He portrays these men not as victims of colonialism but rather as individuals who drew on faith, family, and their ties to Britain to construct a new sense of indigeneity in a globalizing world.

The action not only drew attention to the fact that Canada had acquired Algonquin land without negotiating a treaty, but it also focused attention on the two-thirds of Algonquins who have never been recognized as Indian.  Fractured Homeland is Bonita Lawrence?s stirring account of how the claim forced federally unrecognized Algonquin in Ontario to confront both the issue of their own identity and the failure of Algonquin leaders ? who launched the claim ? to develop a more inclusive vision of nationhood.

In this absorbing work, anthropologist Lynda Mannik analyzes the refugee experience through the photographic record of those who made that harrowing voyage. Drawing on a collection of photographs taken during the voyage and at Pier 21, Mannik asks surviving passengers to describe their journey, their reception in Canada, and to what extent the photos reflect their experiences as they remember them. The photographs in the SS Walnut Collection, she argues, bear witness to the refugee experience even as the meanings attached to them have changed over time and in shifting contexts.

It was suppressed but rose again in the 1920s, spreading into Canada, especially Saskatchewan. This book offers a new interpretation for the appeal of the Klan in 1920s Saskatchewan. It argues that the Klan should not be portrayed merely as an irrational outburst of intolerance but as a populist aftershock of the Great War ? and a slightly more extreme version of mainstream opinion that wanted to keep Canada British. Through its meticulous exploration of a controversial issue central to the history of Saskatchewan and the formation of national identity, this book shines light upon a dark corner of Canada?s past.

For more than six decades, this dedicated group of citizen-soldiers has quietly served as Canada?s eyes, ears, and voice in isolated coastal and northern communities. Drawing on official records, interviews, and participation in Ranger exercises, Lackenbauer argues that the organization offers an inexpensive way for Canada to ?show the flag? from coast to coast to coast.

The incident laid bare Canada?s unity crisis and has since dominated interpretations of the Canada-Quebec-France triangle. David Meren demystifies this  cri du balcon by looking beyond de Gaulle to Quebec?s evolving relationship with France after the?Second World War?and the clash of nationalisms that resulted. By seeking to understand Quebec, Gaullist, and Canadian nationalism, Meren not only casts doubt on established interpretations of events, he also reveals how the challenge of responding to American superpower and influence shaped the triangle.

During this period of great economic growth, McBride brought order to the legislature, encouraged the development of natural resources by facilitating new railways, championed the province in its quarrels with Ottawa, and promoted Canada?s links with the British Empire. His vision of a modern, industrialized, and wealthy province helped shape its institutions and its place in the British world.  Boundless Optimism brings McBride?s political career into focus, chronicling his many accomplishments and putting his activities into historical context without neglecting the downsides of optimism.

Positioning consumer culture in Canada within a wider international context, Consuming Modernity explores the roots of modern Western mass culture during the interwar period of 1919 to 1945, when the female worker, student, and homemaker relied on new products to raise her standard of living and separate herself from oppressive traditional attitudes. Mass-produced consumer products freed up affluent women to pursue other interests shaped by marketing campaigns, advertisements, films, and radio shows; concerns over fashion, personal hygiene, body image, and health reflected these new expectations.

Labour shortages gave workers greater economic power in the workplace. But cultural factors ? workers? patriotism, ties to those on active service, and allegiance to the ?people?s war? ? also fueled the CIO?s growth.

Epidemic Encounters zeroes in on Canada, where one-third of the population took ill and fifty-five thousand people died, to consider the various ways in which this country was affected by the pandemic. How did military and medical authorities, health care workers, and ordinary citizens respond? What role did social inequalities play in determining who survived? Contributors answer these questions as they pertained to both local and national contexts. In the process, they offer new insights into medical history?s usefulness in the struggle against epidemic disease.

J o nes  The prohibition era of gangsters and bootleggers has captured our imagination. But what happened when government turned the taps back on? Dan Malleck shows that contrary to popular belief, post-prohibition Ontario was an age when the government struggled to please both the ?wets? and the ?drys.? Rather than pandering to temperance groups, officials sought to define and promote manageable drinking spaces in which citizens would follow the rules of proper drinking and foster self-control. The regulation of liquor consumption was a remarkable bureaucratic balancing act between temperance and its detractors but equally between governance and its ideal drinker.

In Strong, Beautiful and Modern, Charlotte Macdonald shows how governments encouraged citizens to be healthier and more active, thereby reinforcing the cultural ties of the Empire. At a time when government concern over public health issues such as obesity are once again on the rise, Macdonald explains why the first national fitness drive ultimately failed. This book is a lively investigation into how people and governments think about their health and well-being, and how those historical views have shaped our modern life.

Focusing on agriculture, Resistance Is Fertile challenges this dominant rhetoric by analyzing the major issues around which opponents of biotechnology in Canada are mobilizing resistance ? namely, the enclosure of the biological and the knowledge commons, which together form the BioCommons. What emerges is an empirically and theoretically informed analysis of Canada?s regulatory regime, the corporate control of seeds, and attempts to construct and control public discussions about agricultural biotechnology.

Yet even after decades of campaigns, governments have largely failed to address health and sustainability issues in an effective way. This volume showcases the research of experts from multiple disciplines who argue that solutions lie not just in lobbying elected officials but in initiatives at the subparliamentary level. Real change will come, they argue, when advocacy groups develop innovative strategies capable of influencing decision makers more resistant?to public pressure: business lobbies well connected to government agencies, middle managers, and ministries unused to collaborating across departmental mandates.

The slogan symbolized the intimate ties that had emerged between hydroelectric development in the North and French Canadian aspirations in the South. Caroline Desbiens focuses on the first phase of the James Bay hydroelectric project to explore how this culture of hydroelectricity hastened the erasure of Aboriginal homelands and the manipulation of Northern Quebec?s material landscape. She concludes that truly sustainable resource development will depend on all actors bringing an awareness of their cultural histories and visions of nature, North, and nation to the negotiating table.

The storm transformed the city?s most treasured landmark into a tangle of splintered trees and shattered a decades-old vision of the park as timeless virgin wilderness. In Inventing Stanley Park, Sean Kheraj traces how this tension between popular expectations of idealized nature and the volatility of complex ecosystems helped shape the landscape of one of the world?s most famous urban parks. This beautifully illustrated book not only depicts the natural and cultural forces that shaped the park?s landscape, it also examines the roots of our complex relationship with nature.

Scars from logging and surface mining sit alongside national parks and ski lodges. Although the environmental effects of extractive industries are well known, skiing is more likely to bring to mind images of luxury, wealth, and health. Drawing on interviews, field observations, and media analysis, Stoddart reveals the multiple, often conflicting meanings attached to skiing by skiers, mass media, First Nations, industry leaders, and environmentalists in British Columbia. Stoddart challenges us to reflect on skiing?s negative effects as he exposes how certain groups came to be viewed as the ?natural? inhabitants and legitimate managers of mountain environments.

Canada?s contemporary picture gallery, however, contains more disturbing images ? deforested mountains, empty fisheries, and melting ice caps. Adopting both a chronological and thematic approach, Laurel MacDowell examines human interactions with the land, and the origins of our current environmental crisis, from first peoples to the Kyoto Protocol.

As Darcy Ingram shows in Wildlife, Conservation, and Conflict in Quebec, many of the wildlife conservation strategies currently in place today were inspired by a longstanding belief in progress, improvement, and social order. In Quebec, a lease-based regulatory system emerged in which leassees, the province, and fish and game clubs effectively privatized Quebec?s wildlife resources, often to the detriment of commercial and subsistence hunters and fishers.

In Canoe Nation, Bruce Erickson argues that the canoe?s sentimental power has come about through a set of narratives that attempt to legitimize a particular vision of Canada that overvalues the nation?s connection to nature. From Alexander Mackenzie to Grey Owl to Pierre Elliott Trudeau, the canoe authenticates Canada?s reputation as a tolerant, environmentalist nation, even when there is abundant evidence to the contrary. Ultimately, the stories we tell about the canoe need to be understood as moments in the ever-contested field of cultural politics.

Yet such practices are just the latest in a long and complex national history. Canadian Liberalism and the Politics of Border Control sheds light on the first century of Canada?s efforts to control its borders, framing pivotal moments within a long-standing but often overlooked debate over the rights of non-citizens. Anderson provides valuable insights into contemporary liberal-democratic control by demonstrating that today?s more restrictive approach reflects traditions deeply embedded within liberal democracies.

To answer these questions, Stalled provides a detailed roadmap of women?s political representation as candidates, office-holders, cabinet ministers, party leaders, and as representatives of the Crown at all levels of government across Canada.

While Aron wrote during the Cold War, Thierry de Montbrial writes about the post-Soviet international system, a system that is multipolar, ideologically heterogeneous, and thus highly unstable. In this book, he lays the foundation for a praxeology, or a ?science of action? to facilitate a better understanding of the dynamics of international problems and a more systematic approach to policy making. A major contribution to international relations theory and winner of the 2002 Georges Pompidou Prize, this book offers the necessary keys to decrypt the international system in the 21st century.

Do Canadians need to transcend national loyalties to become full global citizens? Is the idea of rooted cosmopolitanism simply a myth that encourages complacency about Canada?s place in the world? This volume assesses rooted cosmopolitanism both in theory and practice. By exploring how Canadians are accommodating ?the world? in areas such as multiculturalism, climate change, and humanitarian intervention, the contributors test the possibility of reconciling national allegiances with commitments to human rights, global justice, and international law.

His is a thought-provoking analysis that sheds light on the dynamics of membership politics and policy making in contemporary liberal-democratic countries.

Yet in Canada there still exists a struggle between the public?s quest for accountability and our government?s culture of secrecy. Drawing together the perspectives of social scientists, journalists, and ATI advocates,  Brokering Access explores the policies and practices surrounding access to information at the federal, provincial, and municipal levels. This groundbreaking volume is the first of its kind to promote the idea that ATI should be used as a critical research strategy. It is a vital resource for scholars, policy makers, journalists, and anyone who is concerned about access to information and its effect on all Canadians.

Drawing on court files, police and penitentiary records, and newspaper accounts from the Saskatchewan region of the North-West Territories between 1870 and 1905, Shelley Gavigan argues that the notion of criminalization captures neither the complexities of Aboriginal participation in the criminal courts nor the significance of the Indian Act as a form of law. This illuminating book paints a vivid portrait of Aboriginal defendants, witnesses, and informants whose encounters with the criminal law and the Indian Act included both the mediation and the enforcement of relations of inequality.

The land defines Canadians as a people, yet the country has one of the industrialized world?s worst environmental records. Building on his previous book,  The Environmental Rights Revolution (2012), David R.

B oyd Canadian legislatures routinely assign court functions to non-court, government tribunals. These substitute courts constitute a little-known executive-branch system of administrative justice that annually makes hundreds of thousands of contentious, life-altering judicial decisions concerning the rights of businesses and individuals. This book demonstrates that, except perhaps in Quebec, the executive branch?s administrative justice system is a justice system in name only. Failing to conform with rule-of-law and constitutional structural norms, its tribunals are neither independent nor impartial and are only providentially competent. Unjust by Design describes a justice system in transcendent need of fundamental reform and provides a blueprint for change.

Provos t  Often when a religious minority challenges mainstream customs, the phrase ?reasonable accommodation? is at the centre of the ensuing debate. But does reasonable accommodation achieve its goal of integrating the rights of religious minorities with those of mainstream society, or does it really emphasize inequality? Reasonable Accommodation seeks to define the meaning of this phrase and to provide a much-needed critical assessment of its use within Canada and abroad. Woven throughout is commentary about whether there really is a religious majority in Canada, how the idea of ?shared values? obscures debate, and how tolerating religious differences simply isn?t enough to guarantee equality.

Beaman This bold exploration of Aboriginal justice grapples with the difficult question of how Aboriginal justice systems can be fair to their constituents but still comply with the protections guaranteed to all Canadians by the Charter. Until now, scholars have explored idealized notions of what Aboriginal justice might look like. David Milward strikes out into new territory by asking why Aboriginal communities seek reform and by identifying some of the constitutional barriers in their path. He identifies specific areas of the criminal justice process in which Aboriginal communities may wish to adopt different approaches, tests these approaches against constitutional imperatives, and offers practical proposals for reconciling the various matters at stake.

To create a bulwark against further social dislocation, citizens, policy makers, and officials modernized the city?s machinery of order ? courts, prisons, and the police force ? and placed greater emphasis on crime control. These tough-on-crime measures, Boudreau argues, did not resolve problems but rather singled out ethnic minorities, working-class men, and female and juvenile offenders as problem figures in the eternal quest for order.

Although this shift has been overshadowed by legal issues connected to the War on Terror and intervention in countries such as Rwanda and Sudan, it has caused some to question the relevance of the laws of war.  Modern Warfare explores the law?s failure ? and potential ? to ensure compliance in the context of a changing military landscape; by doing so, it opens a path to preventing further unnecessary suffering and violence.

Jacqueline Krikorian explores this question by examining the impact of the WTO?s dispute settlement mechanism on domestic policies in the United States and Canada. She demonstrates that the WTO?s ability to influence domestic arrangements has been constrained by three factors: judicial deference, institutional arrangements, and strategic decision making by political elites in Ottawa and Washington.

In ?Don?t Be So Gay!? Queers, Bullying, and Making Schools Safe, Donn Short considers the effectiveness of safe-school legislation. Drawing on interviews with queer youth and their allies in the Toronto area, Short concludes that current legislation is more responsive than proactive. Moreover, cultural influences and peer pressure may be more powerful than legislation in shaping the school environment. Exploring how students? own experiences, ideas, and definitions of safety might be translated into policy reform, this book offers a fresh perspective on a hotly debated issue.

In reality, however, the vast majority of prisoners who serve out their sentences will never see the inside of a prison cell again.

Exploring the transition from imprisonment to the challenges of resettlement, this book will change the way you think about prisoners and open up the discussion on the perils of tough-on-crime legislation.

In Still Dying for a Living, Steven Bittle turns a critical eye on the Westray bill, revealing how legal, economic, and cultural discourses surrounding the bill downplayed the seriousness of workplace injury and death, effectively characterizing these crimes as regrettable but largely unavoidable accidents and in the process obscuring their underlying causes.

The divergent histories, economies, cultural and linguistic backgrounds, education systems, and political structures of these two regions lead to explanations not only for uneven globalization but also for the wave of demonstrations that have sparked unrest in North Africa and the Near East.

They look at the experiences of fathers from many angles, considering different ages, ethnicities, marital statuses, gender partnering, and economic brackets, and examining issues such as the impact of poverty, access to paternity leave, and the availability of support from social institutions. By co-considering these dimensions and viewpoints, the contributors bring to light interlocking individual, familial, and socio-economic systems in which fathers are embedded.

Why, then, do they occupy a disproportionate number of the junior-level university positions while men occupy 80 percent of the more prestigious jobs? Maureen Baker draws on candid interviews with male and female scholars, previous research, and her own thirty-eight-year academic career to explain the reasons behind this inequality. She argues that current university priorities and collegial relations often magnify the impact of gendered families and identities and perpetuate the gender gap. Tracing the evolution of university priorities and practices, Baker reveals significant and persistent differences in job security, working hours, rank, salary, job satisfaction, and career length.

Addressing questions of literary production, King looks at how writers dealt with shifting ideological demands, what indigenous and imported traditions inspired them, and how they were able to depict a utopian Communist future to their readers, even as the present took a very different turn. Early ?red classics? were followed by works featuring increasingly lurid images of joyful socialism, and later by fiction exposing the Mao era as an age of irrationality, arbitrary rule, and suffering ? a Golden Road that had led nowhere.RICHARD KING is Professor of Chinese Studies at the University of Victoria, teaching Chinese literature and film, Asian popular culture, research methods, and Chinese language.

Contemplating the rhetorical question of how one can begin to rewrite the story of a conquered people whose past was never transcribed in the first place, the authors combine anthropological fieldwork with historical textual analysis to build a new regional history ? one that recognizes the ethnic, religious, and gendered transformations that took place in China?s nation-building process.

It shows how female athletes coped with the conflicting demands of nationalist causes, unwanted male attention, and modern fame, arguing that the athletic female form helped to create a new ideal of modern womanhood in China. Gao brings vividly to life the histories of individual Chinese female athletes and demonstrates how intertwined they were with the aims of the state and the needs of society.

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.

Through the lens of the Chinese media?s depictions of alcohol and opium, Norman Smith examines how intoxicants and addiction were understood in this society, the role the Japanese occupation of Manchuria played in the portrayal of intoxicants, and the efforts made to reduce opium and alcohol consumption. This is the first English-language book-length study to focus on alcohol use in modern China and the first dealing with intoxicant restrictions in the region.

As periodical publishing reached a fever pitch, tabloids had free rein to criticize officials, mock the elite, and scandalize readers. Tabloid writers produced a massive amount of anti-establishment literature, whose distinctive humour and satirical style were both potent and popular. This book shows the tabloid community to be both a producer of meanings and a participant in the social and cultural dialogue that would shake the foundations of imperial China and lead to the 1911 Republican Revolution.

The geographers and anthropologists contributing to this volume are actively engaged in research with upland ethnic minorities. Debating the realities of such fieldwork in socialist regimes and analyzing their positionality and subjectivity in the field, the contributors consider a range of ethical quandaries.

Ironically, the cultural producers chosen to spread the imperialist message were previously left-wing politically. In Glorify the Empire, Annika Culver explores how these once anti-imperialist intellectuals produced avant-garde works celebrating the modernity of a fascist state and reflecting a complicated picture of complicity with, and ambivalence toward, Japan?s utopian project. Glorify the Empire magnifies the intersection between politics and art in a rarely examined period of Japanese history.  ANNIKA A.

It is not an overstatement to say that peter breathed new intellectual life into UbC press. Under his leadership, the press began focusing on publishing in key disciplines, including political science, Aboriginal studies, Canadian history, law and society, environmental studies, and Asian studies. The success of peter?s vision is evident not only in the impressive individual books published by UbC press, but also in the highly successful series it has established, including Nature | History | Society, Studies in Canadian Military History,  Law and Society, and Contemporary Chinese Studies. In transforming the press, peter also changed us, the people who worked with him.  We have learned to think broadly about the value of scholarly publishing and in great detail about how each and every step in the process of publishing a scholarly book contributes to  its excellence. We have been mentored and challenged to meet sometimes difficult goals.  And, above all, we have been invited to join peter in his passion for the profession of publishing, respect for the power and purpose of the written word, and joy in bringing these two things together in the company of very fine colleagues. Peter's commitment to Canadian publishing is unparalleled and he leaves an immeasurable and far-reaching legacy.We thank you peter and we will miss you.
