Based on almost 200 interviews with government policy makers, opinion-shapers, and interest group leaders in both countries, this book considers the inter-action of domestic and cross-border politics at several levels, including political-strategic, trade-commercial, cultural-psychological, and institutional-procedural. It will appeal to practitioners, scholars, and citizens of both countries who want a better understanding of how the bi-national relationship works ? and can be made to work more effectively. Balanced and fair, it gets to the core issues without distort-ing perspectives on either side of the border.GeoFF rey Hale is an associate professor of political science at the University of Lethbridge. ne W rele a SeMay 2012, 352 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-2041-7  HC $ 90.00 978-0-7748-2043-1  liBrary e-BooK Political Science, Canadian Foreign Policy, Canadian Public Policy & Administration,  US Politics During the first half of the twentieth century, Canada and Germany?s responses to questions of national membership consisted of discrimina-tory policies aimed at harnessing migration for economic ends. Yet, by the end of the century, both countries were transformed into highly diverse multicultural societies. How did this remarkable shift come about? Triadafilopoulos argues that, after the war, global human rights norms intersected with domestic political identi-ties and institutions, opening the way for the liberalization of Canada and Germany?s immi-gration and citizenship policies. His thought-provoking analysis sheds light on the dynamics of membership politics and policy making in contemporary liberal-democratic countries.triadaF ilos triadaF iloPoUlos is an assistant professor of political science at the University of Toronto Scarborough.ne W rele a SeApril 2012, 256 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-1566-6  HC $ 90.00 978-0-7748-1568-0  liBrary e-BooK Political Science, Multiculturalism & Transnationalism, Immigration & Emigration, Canadian History, Canadian Social Policy, Political Theory & Philosophy, Race & Ethnicity Political parties worldwide are using marketing tools such as targeting and segmentation to win elections. Are these strategies making politicians and governments more responsive to voters? needs, or do they pose a threat to democracy? Through case studies that range from the resur-rection of the Conservative Party to Tim Hortons as a political brand, this volume shows that the consequences of political marketing in Canada have been profound. Citizens are now viewed as consumers, and platforms and promises have been repackaged as products. Whether this trend is positive or negative depends on how politicians and governments carry out politi-cal marketing ? and its promises ? in practice.aleX Ma rland is an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at Memorial University of Newfoundland. tHierry Giassonis an associate professor in the Communication and Information Department at Universit?

Yet Canada?s failure to meet global commitments raises questions. Do Canadians need to transcend national loyalties to become full global citizens? Is the idea of rooted cos-mopolitanism simply a myth that encourages complacency about Canada?s place in the world? This volume assesses rooted cosmopolitanism in both theory and practice. By exploring how Canadians are accommodating ?the world? in areas such as multiculturalism, climate change, and humanitarian intervention, the contribu-tors test the possibility of reconciling national allegiances with commitments to human rights, global justice, and international law.Will KyMliCKa is the Canada Research Chair in Political Philosophy at Queen?s University.

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 arrange-ments that defy simplistic explanations.treVor W.

Harrison and sloBodan draKUliCMany liberal theorists consider group identity claims a necessary condition of equality in Canada, but do these claims do more harm than good? To answer this question, Caroline Dick examines the identity-driven theories of Charles Taylor, Will Kymlicka, and Avigail Eisenberg in the context of  a case that sets 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 the way in which prevailing con-ceptions of identity and group rights obscure intragroup differences. Her proposal for a new politics of intragroup difference has the power to transform rights discourse in Canada.Caroline diCK is an assistant professor  in the Department of Political Science at the University of Western Ontario.recentlY  rele aSeDOctober 2011, 260 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-2062-2  HC $90.00978-0-7748-2064-6  liBrary e-BooKPolitical Science, Law & Politics, Canadian Courts & Constitution, Political Theory & Philosophy, Multiculturalism & Transnationalism the perils of identityGroup rights and the Politics of intragroup differenceCaroline diCK In an age of multiculturalism and identity politics, many minority groups seek some form of official recognition or public accommoda-tion of their identity. But can public institutions accurately recognize or accommodate some-thing as subjective and dynamic as ?identity?? Avigail Eisenberg and Will Kymlicka lead a distinguished team of scholars who explore state responses to identity claims worldwide. Their case studies focus on key issues where identity is central to public policy. By illuminat-ing both the risks and opportunities of institu-tional responses to diversity, this volume shows that public institutions can either enhance or distort the benefits of identity politics.aViGail eisenBerG is a professor of political  science at the University of Victoria.

Debates centre on the United States, but how have the politics of security influenced the commitment to free-dom in other liberal democracies? Addressing security certificates 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 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.ne W in pa perbacKJanuary 2012, 216 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-1825-4  HC $85.00978-0-7748-1826-1  PB $32.95978-0-7748-1827-8  liBrary e-BooKPolitical Science, Law & Politics, Security Studies Law 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. This remarkable comparative study explores the tenacity of anti-gay sentiment, as well as the dramatic shifts in public attitudes towards queer groups across all faith communities in both the United States and Canada. Contributors con-clude that, despite the ongoing conflict, religious adherence does not invariably entail opposition to the political acknowledgment of queer rights.daVid rayside is a professor of political science and former director of the Mark S.

This volume links ethics to the social politics of care by examining the implications of the feminiza-tion 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 com-parative social policy at the Balsillie School of International Affairs and a professor at Wilfrid Laurier University.

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 par-ties 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 special-izes in Canadian politics, political parties, and the politics of multi-level states.ne W in pa perbacKJanuary 2012, 228 pages, 6 x 9"9 tables and 4 figures (graphs)978-0-7748-2097-4  HC $85.00978-0-7748-2098-1  PB $29.9 5978-0-7748-2099-8  liBrary e- BooKPolitical Science, Canadian Federal Politics, Provincial Politics, Canadian Government, Canadian Political Parties & Elections grassroots liberalsorganizing for local and national PoliticsroyCe KooPPolitics on the Canadian prairies are puzzling.

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.tolly BradFo rd is a research associate  in the Department of History at the University of Manitoba and a history consultant to Canada?s Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Residential Schools.ne W rele a SeApril 2012, 224 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-2279-4  HC $85.00 978-0-7748-2281-7  liBrary e-BooK History, British Empire History, Aboriginal History, Missiology prophetic identitiesindigenous Missionaries on British Colonial F rontiers, 1850-7 5tolly BradFo rdIn a world of flux, as old territorial borders dissolve and new nations come together, who controls ideas, information, and creativity?

The contributors to this volume find answers to these questions in the Mediterranean, a region divided between the wealthier nations of the north shore and their poorer neighbours to the south. The divergent histories, economies, cultural and linguistic backgrounds, educa-tion systems, and political structures of these two regions lead to explanations not only for uneven globalization but also for the wave of demonstrations that sparked the Arab Spring in North Africa and the Near East.yassine essid is an expert on the history of Islamic economic thought and on the his-tory and place of Islam in North Africa and the Middle East.

The incident laid bare Canada?s unity crisis and has since dominated interpretations of the Canada-Quebec-France tri-angle. David Meren demystifies this cri du balconby looking beyond de Gaulle to Quebec?s evolving relationship with France after the war and the clash of nationalisms that resulted. By seeking to understand Quebec, Gaullist, and Canadian nationalism, Meren not only casts doubt on estab-lished interpretations of events, he also reveals how the challenge of responding to American superpower and influence shaped the triangle.daVid Meren is an assistant professor in  the D?partement d?histoire at the Universit?  de Montr?al.ne W rele a SeMay 2012, 320 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-2224-4  HC $ 9 5.00 978-0-7748-2226-8  liBrary e-BooK Canadian History, Political ScienceW ith friends like theseentangled nationalisms and the Canada-Quebec- F rance triangle, 1944-1970daVid MerenThe prohibition era of gangsters and bootleggers has captured our imagination. But what hap-pened when the 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 ?dries.? 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. Post-prohibition liquor control was not a restrictive regulatory force but rather something more pragmatic ? a bureaucratic attempt to balance temperance with recognition that prohibition was unsustainable.dan MalleCK is an associate professor in the Department of Community Health Sciences at Brock University.ne W rele a SeMay 2012, 301 pages, 6 x 9"4 line art, 3 diagrams, and 8 tables978-0-7748-2220-6  HC $85.00 978-0-7748-2222-0  liBrary e-BooK Canadian Social History, Health Policy, Canadian Social Policy try to control Yourselfthe regulation of Public drinking in Post-Prohibition ontario, 1927-44dan MalleCKHealth crises such as the SARS epidemic and H1N1 have rekindled interest in the 1918 influ-enza pandemic, which swept the globe after the First World War and killed approximately fifty million people.

Lavishly illus-trated and based on cowboy/cowgirl biographies and memoirs, press coverage, archival records, and dozens of interviews with former and cur-rent rodeo contestants, promoters, and audience members, 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. recentlY  rele aSeDNovember 2011, 312 pages, 6 x 9"53 b&w photos, 4 maps978-0-7748-2029-5  HC $85.00 978-0-7748-2031-8  liBrary e-BooK Canadian Social History, Western Provinces, Communication & Cultural Studies, Gender & Women's Studies, Aboriginal Historya W ilder W estrodeo in Western CanadaMary- ellen KelMCanada shared a rich, multi-faceted history with China long before it recognized the People?s Republic of China in 1970.

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 friend-ship, everyday religious practices, the example of Sun Yat-sen, and the sharing of food.

What was it about the ?good war? that brought about this phenomenal growth? Labour Goes to War argues that both economic and cultural forces were at work. Labour short-ages 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. The complex, often contra-dictory, motives of workers during this period left the Canadian labour movement with an ambivalent progressive/conservative legacy.Wendy CUtHBertson is a senior research  analyst with the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations.ne W rele a SeMay 2012, 240 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-2342-5  HC $85.00 978-0-7748-2344-9  liBrary e-BooK Canadian Labour History, Military History, Women's History Studies in Canadian Military History Series   Published in association with the  Canadian War Museumlabour goes to W arthe Cio and the Construction of a new social order, 193 9 -45Wendy CUtHBertsonIn the early twentieth century, politicians singled out the Lakehead as a breeding ground for radical labour politics.

Cultural ties among workers helped bring left-wing ideas to Canada, but ethnicity weakened the left as each group developed a distinctive vocabulary of social-ism and as Anglo-Celtic workers defended their privileges against Finns, Ukrainians, and Italians.

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.

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 enforce-ment 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.

Queer theo-rists 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 assimila-tion, diversity without exclusion, and liberty without suffering. Blending feminist theory with queer theory, she advances an iconoclas-tic approach to law and sexuality that has the power to transform both theory and practice.elaine CraiG is an assistant professor at the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University.recentlY  rele aSeDNovember 2011, 220 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-2180-3  HC $85.00978-0-7748-2182-7  liBrary e-BooKGender & Sexuality, Feminism & Gender Studies in Law, Law & Society Law and Society SeriesTroubling Sextowards a legal theory of sexual integrityelaine CraiGIn relational theory, the self is seen as funda-mentally constituted in terms of its relations to others: it not only lives in relationship with and to others, but also owes its very exis-tence to such relationships.

Erickson?s analysis of these cases shows that, rather than a desire to protect, official responses to the most intimate or violent acts betrayed an impulse to shore up the liberal order by maintaining boundaries between men and women, Native people and newcomers, and capital and labour. Victims and accused could only hope to harness entrenched ideas about masculinity, femininity, race, and class in their favour.

In Judging Homosexuals, Patrice Corriveau finds 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 defined in turn as sinners, as criminals, as inverts, and as citizens deserving of protection, this book shows how the law helped construct the crime.

In Transforming Law?s Family,Fiona Kelly explores the complex issues encoun-tered by planned lesbian families as they work to define their parental rights, roles, and family structures within the tenets of family law. While Canadian courts recognize lesbian parenthood in some circumstances, a number of issues that are largely unique to planned lesbian fami-lies ? such as the legal status of known sperm donors and non-biological mothers ? remain undefined.

Bruce Morito offers a philosophical re-reading of the historical record of negotiations, showing that the parties devel-oped an ethic of mutually recognized respect. This ethic, Morito argues, remains relevant to current debates over Aboriginal and treaty rights, because it is neither culturally nor histori-cally bound.

Native peoples who fished the Salish Sea drew social and cultural borders around salmon fishing locations and found ways to administer the resource in a sustainable way. Nineteenth-century Euro-Americans took a very different approach and ignored the salmon?s patterns and life cycle. As the canned salmon industry grew and more people moved into the region, class and ethnic relations changed.

Cald Well The Canadian prairies are often envisioned as dry, windswept fields; however, much of southern Manitoba is not arid plain but wet prairie, poorly drained land subject to frequent flooding. Shannon Stunden Bower brings to light the complexities of surface water manage-ment in Manitoba, from early artificial drainage efforts to late-twentieth-century attempts at watershed management. She engages scholar-ship on the state, liberalism, and bioregional-ism 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 post-doctoral fellow in the Department of History and Classics at the University of Alberta.ne W in pa perbacKJanuary 2012, 264 pages, 6 x 9"10 maps978-0-7748-1852-0  HC $85.00978-0-7748-1853-7  PB $34.95978-0-7748-1854-4  liBrary e- BooKEnvironmental History, Resource Management, Environmental Politics, Historical Geography, Canadian Urban & Regional Politics Nature | History | Society SeriesW et prairiePeople, land, and Water in agricultural ManitobasHannon stUnden BoWerCanadian wilderness seems a self-evident entity, yet, as this volume shows in vivid histori-cal detail, wilderness is not what it seems.

This book addresses the gap, showcasing cutting-edge approaches to policy, pedagogy, and practice from diverse perspectives and professional settings. The authors challenge deep-seated assumptions about child and youth care by reinterpreting core concepts such as ethics and outcomes and raising questions about underlying goals and premises. Can the ends of practice be separated from the means? For whose benefit are interventions designed? By recogniz-ing a range of social and political influences on children and youth, this volume bears witness to exciting developments in child and youth care.alan PenCe is UNESCO Chair for Early Child-hood Education, Care and Development, and a professor in the School of Child and Youth Care at the University of Victoria.

Contrary to predictions about the end of children and the end of childhood, these investigations of developments in Canada and the United States, and to a lesser extent elsewhere in the world, show that fertility rates and ideas about chil-dren and childhood are not uniform but rather vary around the globe based on factors such as time, culture, class, income, and age.natHanael laUster is an assistant professor  of sociology at the University of British Columbia.

Intersectionality considers the inter-actions and combined impacts of social locations and structural processes on the creation and perpetuation of inequities. This volume brings together activists, scholars, and community-based researchers to apply interpretations of intersectionality to health and organizational governance cases. By addressing specific health issues, it demonstrates that inequities cannot be understood without the interrogation of power and diverse social locations and structures that shape lives and experiences of health.olena HanKiVsKy is an associate professor of public policy at Simon Fraser University and co-director of the Institute for Critical Studies in Gender and Health. ne W in pa perbacKJanuary 2012, 384 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-1975-6  HC $90.00978-0-7748-1976-3  PB $39.9 5978-0-7748-1977-0  liBrary e- BooKHealth Policy, Canadian Public Policy & AdministrationH ealth inequities in canadaintersectional F rameworks and Practicesedited By olena HanKiVsKy Health research in Canada has mostly focused on urban areas, often overlooking the unique issues faced by Canadians living in rural and remote areas.

This volume advances the debate by shifting the focus from what should be included in his-tory education to how we should think about and teach the past. In this book historians and educators discuss the state of history education research and its implications for classrooms, museums, virtual environments, and public institutional settings. They develop a compre-hensive research agenda both to help students learn about the past and to understand how we construct history from its infinite 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 ?ducation en r?seau. ne W in pa perbacKJanuary 2012, 408 pages, 6 x 9"978-0-7748-2058-5  HC $85.00978-0-7748-2059-2  PB $34.95978-0-7748-2060-8  liBrary e- BooKResearch Methodology, History, Education, Educational Policy & Theory, Education History, Historiography new pos sibilities for the pastshaping History education in Canadaedited By Penney ClarK      |     order online @ order online @ www.ubcpress.ca     |    sPrinG 2012     29 aSian StU Die SaSian StU Die ScanaDian St U Die SThe term home economics often conjures images of sterile classrooms where girls learn to cook din-ner and swaddle dolls, far removed from the seats of power. Helen Schneider unsettles this assump-tion 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 nur-ture ideal families and manage projects of social reform. Although their discipline came undone after 1949, it created a legacy of gendered profes-sionalism 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.ne W in pa perbacKMarch 2012, 336 pages, 6 x 9"16 photos, 1 map978-0-7748-1997-8  HC $85.00978-0-7748-1998-5  PB $34.95978-0-7748-1999-2  liBrary e-BooKChinese Studies, Women's Studies, Education History Contemporary Chinese Studies SeriesK eeping the nation's H ousedomestic Management and the Making of Modern ChinaHelen M. sCHneiderIn the early 1900s, the Qing dynasty imple-mented a nationwide school system to buttress its power. Although the Communists, contem-porary 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 capa-bly integrated foreign ideas and models into a system that was at once traditional and modern, Chinese and Western. Her portrait of educa-tion 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.
