C A Hidden Agendas How Journalists Influence the News In our news-hungry society, where CNN is considered a staple of primetime viewing, journalists have become celebrities and often, political proxies. To a large degree, our world is shaped by their commentaries on everything from war to health care to trade. Hidden Agendas: How Journalists Influence the News is a no-holds-barred exposé of how the opinions of reporters decidedly shape the information that we consider news. Focusing primarily on the political orientation of journalists, Miljan and Cooper investigate the link between what journalists believe about politics and how they report political issues. Using data gathered from interviews with over 800 Canadians and some 270 journalists, the authors compare how the attitudes of journalists differ from those of the general population, and how the journalists’ opinions influence the daily news. By examining the way they respond to questions on the economy, social issues, and national unity, and comparing these re- sponses with how the stories were reported in Canadian news outlets, the book arrives at the controversial conclusion that journalists, more so than the owners of the media, are the architects of the news, engineering not only its drama, but also its ideological thrust. A must-read for anyone interested in politics and the media, this book will appeal to journalists, politicians, academics, and all Canadians who are concerned about the hidden agendas of the men and women who bring us the news. Lydia Miljan and Barry Cooper are both professors of political science. They teach at the University of Windsor and the University of Calgary, respectively.

In truth, they do nothing on their own; they act in the manner of a compassionate passerby who sees an accident in the street and rushes to see if someone else can be of any assistance. But the media greatly affect how we regard government.” – Harvey Mansfield, Jr. Lydia Miljan and Barry Cooper UBC PRESS WWW.UBCPRESS.CA/CURRENTEVENTS 2 O R D E R  F R O M  u n i P R E S S E S  T E L :  1  8 7 7  8 6 4  8 4 7 7 Unnatural Law Rethinking Canadian Environmental Law and Policy While governments assert that Canada is a world leader in sustainability, Unnatural Law provides extensive evidence to refute this claim. A comprehensive assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of Canadian environmental law, the book provides a balanced, critical examination of Canada’s record, focusing on laws and policies intended to protect water, air, land, and biodiversity. Three decades of environmental laws have produced progress in a number of important areas, such as ozone depletion, protected areas, and some kinds of air and water pollution. However, Canada’s overall record remains poor. In this vital and timely study, David Boyd explores the reasons why some laws and policies foster progress while others fail. He ultimately concludes that the root cause of environmental degradation in industri- alized nations is excessive consumption of David R.

Baranek First Do No Harm Making Sense of Canadian Health Reform Is there a crisis in Canadian health care? While the establishment of the Canadian health care system is widely considered a triumph of citizenship, after four decades the national program is in a fragile state marked by declining public confidence. In First Do No Harm, Sullivan and Baranek provide a concise introduction to the fundamentals of health care in Canada and examine various ideas for reforming the system sensibly. Arguing that administrators and policy makers should follow Hippocrates’ dictum “first do no harm” when evaluating and reforming the Canadian health care system, the authors discuss health care financing, popular Canadian health care myths, waiting lists and emergency room overcrowding, and home- and community- based health care. An accessible introduction to the issue, this book is an invaluable invitation to Canadians to think carefully and creatively about the present and future of our health care system. Terrence Sullivan is a professor in the Depart- ments of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, and Public Health Sciences at the University of Toronto. Patricia M. Baranek is an independent health services research consultant. 2002 208 pages, 6 x 9” pb $14.95 ISBN 0-7748-1016-5 Current Events/Policy Studies/Health “David Boyd’s monumental work reveals the fatal weakness of the patchwork quilt of legislation that results because laws are invariably cobbled together when environmen- tal crises are encountered rather than attempting to avoid such crises in advance ... He reminds us that as biological creatures, we require clean air, water, soil, energy, and biodiversity and once that is acknowledged, the path of legisla- tion is obvious: to protect those needs for all life above anything else. That would be legislation for genuine sustainability.” – David Suzuki resources. Unnatural Law outlines the innova- tive changes in laws and policies that Canada must implement in order to respond to the ecological imperative of living within the Earth’s limits. The struggle for a sustainable future is one of the most daunting challenges facing humanity in the twenty-first century. Everyone – academ- ics, lawyers, students, policy makers, and concerned citizens – interested in the health of the Canadian and global environments will find Unnatural Law an invaluable source of information and insight.

C A Murdering Holiness The Trials of Franz Creffield and George Mitchell Jim Phillips and Rosemary Gartner Salvation. Seduction. Revenge. All play a role in this captivating exporation of the “Holy Roller” sect led by Franz Creffield in the early years of the twentieth century. Creffield, a charismatic, self-styled messiah, taught his followers to forsake the worldli- ness of material goods and their families and seek only salva- tion. As his teachings became more extreme, the local commu- nity reacted by tarring and feathering him and incarcerating his mainly female followers in an asylum and other institutions. Creffield himself was imprisoned after a conviction for adultery, but revived the sect shortly after his release. George Mitchell, the brother of two of Creffield’s female follow- ers, pursued him to Seattle and shot him dead. In a trial that made headlines across the United States, Mitchell was acquit- ted, ostensibly on the basis of insanity but in reality due to the “unwritten law” that justified killing in defence of a female relative who had been sexually “wronged.” Mitchell himself was then murdered two days after his acquittal by his own sister, Esther, whom he had claimed to be defending. In a final twist to this gripping story, Esther did not stand trial for the murder of her brother but was placed in the asylum, ultimately taking her own life by poison a few years later. In this fascinating story, Phillips and Gartner explore the rela- tionships among formal and informal law, gender relations, and religious repression. Murdering Holiness will appeal to those with an interest in crime and punishment, as well as readers of Pacific Northwest history. Jim Phillips is a professor at the Centre of Criminology and Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto. Rosemary Gartner is a professor of criminology and sociology at the University of Toronto.

Helen M. Buss, Department of English, University of Calgary, is a literary scholar who works with memoirs, diaries, and letters. NOW IN PAPERBACK NOW IN PAPERBACK Edited by Judith Hudson Beattie and Helen M. Buss Undelivered Letters to Hudson’s Bay Company Men on the Northwest Coast of America, 1830-57 In the early nineteenth century, when the Hudson’s Bay Company sent men to its furth- est posts along the coast of North America’s Pacific Northwest, the letters of those who cared for those men followed them in the Company’s supply ships. Sometimes, these letters missed their objects - the men had returned to Britain, or deserted their ships, or died. The Company returned the corre- spondence to its London office and over the years amassed a file of “undelivered letters.” Many of these remained sealed for 150 years until they were opened by archivist Judith Hudson Beattie, when the Company archives were moved to Canada. These letters tell the fascinating stories of ordinary people whose lives are rarely re- counted in traditional histories. Beattie and Helen M. Buss skilfully introduce us to both the lives of the letter writers and their would-be recipients. Their commentaries frame, for contemporary readers, the words of early nineteenth-century working- and middle-class British folk as well as letters to “voyageurs” from Quebec. The stories of their lives - fathers struggling to support a family, widowed mothers yearning to see their sons, bereft sweethearts left behind, and wives raising their children alone - reach out over two centuries to offer rare insight into the varied worlds of men and women of the nineteenth century, many of whom became settlers in Washington, Oregon, and the new British colony of Vancou- ver Island. Julia Harrison Being a Tourist Finding Meaning in Pleasure Travel What is meaningful about the experience of travelling abroad? What feeds the impulse to explore new horizons? In Being a Tourist, Harrison analyzes her conversations with a large group of upper-middle-class travellers. Why, she asks, do these people invest their resources -- financial, emotional, psychologi- cal, and physical -- in this activity? Suggesting that they are fuelled by a search for intimacy and connection, an expression of personal aesthetic, an exploration of the understanding of “home,” and a sensemaking strategy for a globalized world, Harrison reflects on the moral and political complexities of the travels of these people. Being a Tourist draws on a wide range of social theory, going beyond current debates of authenticity and consumption. Engagingly and thoughtfully written, it will be welcome reading for travellers and travel writers, and anyone curious about the various faces of the travel bug.

NOW IN PAPERBACK The Halifax Explosion of 1917 is a defining event in the Canadian consciousness, yet it has never been the subject of a sustained analytical history. Astonishingly, until now no one has consulted the large federal govern- ment archives that contain first-hand accounts of the disaster and the response of national authorities. Canada’s recently established navy was at the epicentre of the crisis. Armstrong reveals the navy’s compelling, and little-known, story by carefully retracing the events preceding the disaster and the role of the military in its aftermath. He catches the pulse of disaster response in official Ottawa and provides a compelling analysis of the legal manoeuvres, rhetoric, blunders, public controversy, and crisis management that ensued. His disturbing conclusion is that federal officials knew of potential dangers in the harbour before the explosion, took no corrective action, and kept the information from the public. As a result, a Halifax naval officer was made a scapegoat and the navy received lasting, and mostly undeserved, vilification. This is a compelling read not only for military and naval devotees but for anyone who wants to understand one of the events that shaped Canada in the twentieth century. The extended peace the world anticipated following the decisive Allied victory in the Second World War was abruptly shattered in June 1950 by the invasion of South Korea by communist North Korea.  Responding to a United Nations call to assist the South Korean regime, Canada deployed an 8000- man brigade to the peninsula to fight as part of an American-led UN force. This comprehensive account of the Canadian campaign in Korea provides the first detailed study of the training, leadership, operations, and tactics of the brigade under each of its three wartime commanders as well as its relationship with American and Commonwealth allies. An impeccably researched analytical history, the book examines the uneven performance of the various Canadian units and argues that the soldiers of the “Special Force” initially sent to Korea were more thorough and professional in their operations than were the army’s regular battalions that eventually replaced them at the front. In this, the 50th anniversary of the armistice in Korea, the revisionist interpretations of A War of Patrols will attract both academic and military professionals, as well as general readers interested in a fresh look at an important part of Canada’s military past.

Johnson The Co-Workplace Teleworking in the Neighbourhood Thanks to telecommunications breakthroughs, almost half of all jobs in North America and Europe could today be performed away from a traditional office. This book explores the “co-workplace,” a new type of neighbourhood- based facility offering the benefits of remote work while maintaining boundaries between work and home. Drawing lessons from spaces used collaboratively by software developers, artists, lawyers, and other professionals, Laura Johnson tackles one of the central policy and planning issues of our time. “I learned so much from this wonderful small book! In her fascinating and well-researched account, Laura C. Johnson discusses home work in historical perspective, looks at North American telecommuting experiences by class, gender, and household type, and exposes the potential of architectural design to improve live-work solutions. The Co-Workplace is essential reading for anyone contemplating work from home and for all architects and urban planners.” – Dolores Hayden, Yale University, author of Redesigning the American Dream: Gender, Housing, and Family Life Laura C.

C A ROYAL BRITISH COLUMBIA MUSEUM Songhees Pictorial A History of the Songhees People as Seen by Outsiders (1790-1912) Grant Keddie Grant Keddie has been Curator of Archaeology at the Royal BC Museum for thirty-one years. He has written numerous articles on archaeology and ethnohistory in British Columbia. This is his first book. Since 1790, when Spanish explorers first arrived, visitors to the southern tip of Vancouver Island and the colonists who settled here have illustrated, written about and photographed the indigenous Songhees people. In the mid 1800s, the establishment of the old Songhees Reserve on Victoria Harbour created a gathering place for First Nations throughout the region seeking trade with Europeans. This new commerce brought prosperity, conflict, disease and cultural upheaval to the Songhees and other First Nations. Grant Keddie presents these rapidly changing times through the eyes of outsiders, as depicted in photographs and artist’s render- ings, as expressed in newspaper reports and private journals. Professional and amateur photographers created a rich visual history of the old Songhees Reserve and the rapidly growing city of Victoria, from simple post cards to stunning panoramas. This delightful compendium will appeal to anyone interested in the history of Victoria and British Columbia, First Nations, or photography. Edited by Grace L. Dillon Hive of Dreams Contemporary Science Fiction from the Pacific Northwest Grace Dillon teaches University Studies and English at Portland State University and has published articles on science fiction in a number of books and periodicals. SEPTEMBER 288 pages, 6 x 9” pb $29.95 ISBN 0-87071-555-0 Science Fiction This unique collection brings together for the first time the work of a dozen internationally prominent science fiction writers who make their home in the Pacific Northwest. Editor Grace L. Dillon’s informative introduc- tion shows how the region’s culture, economy, and natural environment are reflected in the work of these different authors. Exploring tensions between our increasing affinity with technology and traditional concerns with environmental sustainability, the works presented here demonstrate the spirit that makes Northwest science fiction distinctive. Hive of Dreams begins in the forests and mountains of the Northwest with Ursula Le Guin’s “The Good Trip” and ends in the cities and multinational conglomerates of the Pacific Rim with William Gibson’s “Idoru.” In the space between, readers will encounter writings by such notable authors as Douglas Coupland, Greg Bear, Octavia Butler, Molly Gloss, Richard Powers, Joanna Russ, Neal Stephenson, and John Varley, among others. Hive of Dreams will clearly establish the unique signature of Northwest writers within the broader world and traditions of science fiction. Lovers of great science fiction, as well as teachers and students of contempo- rary literature in general, will find much of interest in this exciting collection. The book will also appeal to readers looking for new writers or for an introduction to the genre. » RECENTLY PUBLISHED BY THE ROYAL BRITISH COLUMBIA MUSEUM Magic Leaves A History of Haida Argillite Carving Peter L.

Don Smith, or Lelooska, (1933-1996) was well-known in the Pacific Northwest as a Native American artist and storyteller. Of “mixed- blood” Cherokee heritage, he was adopted as an adult by the prestigious Kwakiutl Sewid clan and had relationships with elders from a wide range of tribal backgrounds. Initially producing curio items for sale to tourists and regalia for Oregon Indians, he emerged in the late 1950s as one of a handful of artists who proved critical in the renaissance of Northwest Coast Indian art. He also developed into a supreme performer and educator, staging shows of dances, songs, and storytelling. During the peak years from the 1970s to the early 1990s, the family shows with Lelooska as the centrepiece attracted as many as 30,000 people annually. In this book, historian and family friend Chris Friday shares and annotates interviews that he conducted with Lelooska between 1993 and 1996. In the process, he develops a portrait that is large enough to embrace the contradic- tory elements of Lelooska’s life. What, he asks, is Native identity? What is “authenticity” in art? How are we to understand the concept of pan- Indianism? What are the politics of Indian tribal adoption? By engaging these questions and the contradictions that produce them, Friday honours Lelooska’s complexity and constructs Lelooska’s life as a prism for viewing the shifting and historically indeterminate nature of twentieth-century Indian identities. Freeze Frame takes a penetrating, often humourous, look at how Eskimos have been portrayed in nearly a century of film, from the pioneering documentaries of missionaries and Arctic explorers to Eskimo Pie commercials of the 1990s. Some of these works are serious attempts to depict a culture; others are unabashed entertainment, featuring papier mâché igloos and zebra-skin parkas. Even filmmakers who sought authenticity were likely to build igloos in villages that had never seen one, and to hire non-Native actors to portray the Eskimo principals. The groundbreaking film Nanook of the North, released in 1922, solidified the popular impression of Eskimos and set the precedent for dozens of ethnographic docudramas to follow. Freeze Frame documents the ideas that motivate and lie behind this abundant genera- tion of images. The first study to look at the popular image of Alaska Eskimos, it makes an important contribution to our understanding of Native American stereotyping.

But these stereotypes are outdated, espe- cially for those company towns that flourished well into the twentieth century. In Company Towns of the Pacific Northwest, Linda Carlson provides a more balanced and realistic look at these “intentional communities.” Drawing from residents’ reminiscences, contemporary newspaper accounts, company newsletters and histories, census and school records, and site plans, this vibrant history gives the details of daily life in communities that were often remote and subject to severe weather – as much as 100 inches of rain a year near the coast or 10 feet of snow in the mountains. It looks at the tragedies and celebrations: sawmill accidents, mine cave- ins, and avalanches as well as Independence Day picnics, school graduations, and Christ- mas parties. Finally, it tells what happened when people left – when they lost their jobs, when the family breadwinner died or was disabled, when the mill closed. This lively and well-researched book will be welcomed by those interested in Northwest history, as well as students of labour and business history. An ample selection of illustrations, most never previously published, broadens its appeal. In 1896, a small group of prospectors discovered a stunningly rich pocket of gold at the confluence of the Klondike and Yukon rivers, and in the following two years thou- sands of individuals traveled to the area, hoping to find wealth in a rugged and chal- lenging setting. Ever since that time, the Klondike Gold Rush – especially as portrayed in photographs of long lines of gold seekers marching up Chilkoot Pass – has had a hold on the popular imagination. In this first environmental history of the gold rush, Kathryn Morse describes how the miners got to the Klondike, the mining technologies they employed, and the complex networks by which they obtained food, clothing, and tools. Her story is often nar- rated through the diaries and letters of the miners themselves. The daunting challenges of traveling, working, and surviving in the raw wilderness are illustrated not only by the miners’ compelling accounts but by news- paper reports and advertisements that contributed to the public relations campaign designed to lure gold seekers – and their money – to the businesses of the Pacific Northwest. This captivating drama of the miners’ journeys north, their trials along the gold creeks, and their encounters with an extreme climate will appeal not only to scholars of the western environment and of late-nineteenth-century industrialism, but also to readers interested in reliving the vivid adventure of the West’s last great gold rush.

He also takes the reader into the artist’s studio, where, in the course of painting, Currier discusses his tools, techniques, and gratification found within the process of artmaking. Colour plates represent works created between 1992 and 2002 – the time of Currier’s professional coming-of-age, which saw the crystallization of his personal style and technique. As Currier paints layer upon layer, he plumbs the depths of soul. After he rests his brushes and knives, the paintings continue to breathe and grow. They seem to expand before our very eyes, reaching outward to beyond the beyond, even as they retract far behind the canvas, back into the rarefied world of sheer possibility. Currier dedicates this book to the Hispanic migrant worker. Profits from this book go to Tierra Nueva, an organization that helps migrant workers in Washington’s Skagit Valley. Ted Lindberg has been an art museum curator and administrator at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, and California College of Arts and Crafts.

Beginning with what he has called the particular affinity between nature and the making of glass, Warmus explores the ability of glass to convey the power of abstraction and colour. He further delves into the prevalent use of glass – sometimes called the new bronze – to depict the human figure and animal forms. Finally, he contemplates the theatrical nature of installations and environmental sculptures, demonstrating the surprising capability of glass to impose itself on the space we inhabit to alter our very perception of it. Warmus also gives a brief history of glass as an art form and places contemporary glass within the context of contemporary art and theory at large. Fire and Form offers a unique perspective on this vital and “intoxicating” medium, and its publication is a welcome event for all lovers of glass – those who make it, those who collect it, and those who admire it. William Warmus is a former curator of the Corning Museum of Glass, a past editor of Glass magazine, and the author of many books on glass and its artists.

But a detailed investigation of their interactions from 1930 to 1954 shows the perception of these four artists as a cohesive group to be a myth. Drawing on letters and interviews, Northwest Mythologies offers a new analysis of their interactions and accomplishments, and places their art and ideologies in the larger context of American modernism. Although the artists exchanged ideas and shared common interests, they were close friends and colleagues for only a few years around the time of World War II. Each experi- mented with stylistic elements admired in the others painting, yet they produced distinctive, wide-ranging bodies of work over their long careers. What fundamentally united these artists was their philosophical approach to artmaking, one that rested on humanism and their passion- ate belief in art as a moral pursuit.

Ficken Unsettled Boundaries Fraser Gold and the British- American Northwest WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY PRESS Packed with spectacular photographs and a trainman’s vivid memories, Railscapes is an exceptional album, filled with the author’s unbounded enthusiasm, love, and respect for the world of trains. Fredrickson opens the shutter wide on more than six decades of American railroading, and offers insider insights on the business of moving men and materials via the great steel ribbons that connected the Pacific Northwest with the rest of the world. For thirty-eight years, the author worked for the Northern Pacific in Washington state as a telegraph operator – a “brasspounder” – and as a dispatcher. He had the good fortune to work and travel in some of the most beautiful territory in the United States, and his camera covered it all – from the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana and Idaho, to the Cascade Range of Washington, to the coastal region of Puget Sound. Arranged thematically from his immense collection of railroad images, Railscapes features his favorite photographs, with sections on train wrecks, special and futuristic trains, the last of the steam engines, depots, railroad folks, and more. Jim Fredrickson is a noted regional photographer and railroad expert who has compiled an unparal- leled collection of pictures and historical memora- bilia about Northwest rail lines and trains. OCTOBER 160 pages, 10 ½ x 9” illus. pb $46.95 ISBN 0-87422-271-0 Responding to reports of gold discoveries on the Fraser River, thousands of prospec- tors from California and other points on the Pacific coast crossed the 49th parallel to British territory in 1858. Most returned to San Francisco and Puget Sound later in the same year, blaming their failure to find wealth in the river canyons upon uncooperative officials of the Hudson’s Bay Company and the English government. Viewing events from the perspective of California, historians have generally consid- ered the gold rush a failure. In reality, however, the Fraser River experience was a sustained success, continuing beyond 1858, embracing the vast interior of British Colum- bia and becoming one of the major develop- ments in Pacific Northwest history. Although it is an artificial line bisecting forest, moun- tain, and prairie, the 49th parallel separated distinct regions of law and custom,  a fact that explains why Americans were unable to comprehend the true nature of their adventures in British North America.

Rulloff’s life makes a plot worthy of a Sherlock Holmes mystery: adultery, murder, a public hanging, two missing bodies, and the secret of the origin of language. With one important exception – it really happened. Rulloff’s crimes were unextraordinary – thievery, fraud, murder. And on the face of it, Bailey’s treatment is calm and factual, calling on newspaper accounts, interviews, and eyewitness reports of the day. Yet the slow, quiet accumulation of details builds to a story that transcends its individual events to touch on the universal themes of any age. A compelling tale of a professional con artist, Rogue Scholar is also a stark portrait of a condemned man in his final hours, an examina- tion of the death penalty, and a reminder that media sensationalism is nothing new. Finally, it is a story of the mystery of the human heart, and how each of us is alone in the end. Richard W. Bailey is Professor of English Language and Literature at the University of Michigan.

Using a wealth of examples from every era and tradition, she traces a long and primal struggle that over the course of millennia saw originally female deities usurped by male-dominated priestly hierarchies, a process reflected both in myth and in actual religious practice, which saw the goddess principle attacked, diminished, and eclipsed, but never entirely eliminated. Filled with vivid full-colour illustrations and dozens of informative sidebars, this is a book that will appeal to a wide audience, from scholars in women’s studies, anthropology, folklore, and ancient history to more general readers interested in the female influence on cultural evolution and the antecedents to modern New Age thought.

Yet its victims are often civilians – many among them women and children. In Women and War Jenny Matthews gives a voice to this silent majority of casualties through a series of deeply moving, and sometimes disturbing, photographs of human subjects in the midst of war and conflict wherever they are found. Twenty years of visual and written diaries document human struggle around the world: Nicaragua, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, Burma, Chechnya, Haiti, the United Kingdom, Guate- mala, and Sudan, among others. Matthews documents women and the roles they play – avoiding, coping, confronting, participating – as well as the emotions they experience: anger, fear, despair, joy, hope, terror. Matthews records the stories of the people she photographs, both visually and with written diaries that underscore the immediacy of the images, drawing connections between the different countries. Above all her book is a celebration of the lives of women, and how their role as actual or potential mothers changes their relationship to war. Jenny Matthews is a freelance photographer and filmmaker. Her work has been exhibited by Oxfam and Womankind Worldwide, and has appeared in magazines such as Mother Jones.

C A UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN PRESS Elevator Music A Surreal History of Muzak, Easy Listening, and Other Moodsong Joseph Lanza Diana Beresford-Kroeger Arboretum America Photographed and Orchestrated by Marjorie Ryerson Water Music Arboretum America is, at the very least, the Bible of Trees. But its ambitions are grander than that. Author Diana Beresford-Kroeger aims for no less than the salvation of the planet – through the miracle of trees. There are many books on both subjects. Some warn, some inform, while others meditate on the disappearance of the forests or the meaning of trees. Few books, though, touch on all of these subjects as this one does. Beresford’s remedy, what she calls the Bioplan, commences with a simple directive: know thy trees. Most important, this revolution must start, not with governments and sweep- ing legislation, but with “ordinary people with an acorn and a shovel.” As E.O. Wilson writes in his foreword, Beresford- Kroeger is a poet and naturalist, “both druidical and scientific in literary expression.” So, too, is her Bioplan, which in spirit and letter covers all aspects of trees, from their history and use by First Nations people, to their organic care, their medicinal and therapeutic properties, design and horticultural considerations, and the magic spell they cast over us. Diana Beresford-Kroeger is a botanist, researcher, lecturer, and self-defined “renegade scientist” in the fields of botany, biochemistry, and organic and nuclear chemistry. She lives in Merrickville, Ontario.

In this book, award- winning photographer Marjorie Ryerson has recruited some of the most important names in music to accompany her photographs. These artists have contributed memoirs, stories, poetry, music, and lyrics for Water Music, reinforcing the beauty of the images and the powerful message they convey – that in spite of our reverence for water, we have placed this most essential element in peril. Contribu- tors include Dave Brubeck, Paul Winter, Taj Mahal, Bruce Cockburn, Pete Seeger, Sarah Chang, Vladimir Ashkenazy, and George Winter. Water Music is also a piece of a much larger picture: the Water Music Project, which Ryerson began not only to celebrate the beauty of water and its connection to music and to our lives, but also to increase aware- ness about water issues through concerts, lectures, events, and educational outreach. She is donating net royalties from sales of the book to the Water Music Fund, at the United Nations Foundation, which will use the fund to aid water in the natural environment and to provide clean drinking water for families around the world.

Call it what you will – elevator music, moodsong, easy listening, or Muzak®. For a musical genre that was sup- posed to offend no one, it has a lot of en- emies. Musical cognoscenti decry its insipid content; regular folk bemoan its pervasive- ness; while hipsters and campsters celebrate its retro chic. Mindful of the many voices, Joseph Lanza’s Elevator Music sings seriously, with tongue in cheek, the praises of this venerable American institution. Lanza addresses the critics who say that Muzak and its ilk are dehumanized, vapid, or cheesy. Arguing that these reactions are based more on cultural prejudices than honest musical appraisal, Lanza hails today’s so-called mood music as the inheritor of a long tradition of mood-altering music stretching back to the ancients. Contemporary atmospheric music, he maintains, is the inevitable background for our media-dominated age. “This book will have succeeded in its purpose,” Lanza writes, “if I can help efface ... the distinction between one person’s elevator music and another’s prized recording.” Joseph Lanza is an author, producer, and music historian.

As a freelance journalist, Benarde has been published in Rolling Stone, Musician, Billboard, Variety, and a host of Jewish publica- tions. He lives with his wife and two children in Delray Beach, Florida. What Grammy-award winning band’s Jewish members recite kiddush before their Friday night concerts? What famous rock musician packed his menorah as well as his drum set when preparing to go on world-wide concert tours? How did Judaism’s historic affinity with music translate into some of the best-loved rock ’n’ roll songs of the past century? Inspired by a backstage conversation with David Lee Roth during which the rock star revealed that he first learned to sing preparing for his Bar Mitzvah, Scott Benarde spent more than five years combining his own love of Judaism, journalism, and rock ’n’ roll to investigate the Jewish contribution to rock music from 1953 to the present. Stars of David offers a highly readable collection of short vignettes that demonstrate the rich strand of Jewish belief and sentiment that underscores the work of many of the best-known rock stars of our time. Among those discussed or interviewed are Bob Dylan, Melissa Manchester, Janis Ian, Randy Newman, Billy Joel, and David Lee Roth, and members of groups such as Yes, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Bon Jovi, Phish, the Wallflowers and many others. With fascinating anecdotes and personal revelations enhanced by more than 70 photographs, Stars of David is not so much about how Jewish these artists are but ultimately, how they are Jewish, and how this Jewishness has affected rock ’n’ roll. Farideh Goldin was born to a fifteen-year-old mother in 1953, into a Jewish community living in an increasingly hostile Islamic state – pre-revolutionary Iran. This memoir is Goldin’s passionate and painful account of growing up in a poor Jewish household and her emigra- tion to the United States in 1975. In recalling trips to the market and the mikveh as well as preparations for ritual celebrations like weddings, Goldin chronicles her child- hood, her relatives’ lives, and the lives of the women in her community in the southern Iranian city of Shiraz. Her memoir details her parents’ “courtship” (her father selected her mother from a group of adolescent girls); her mother’s lonely life as a child-bride in a household dominated by her mother-in-law; and Goldin’s childhood home, presided over by her paternal grandmother. In its subtle way, Goldin’s memoir conveys not just the personal trauma of growing up in a Jewish extended family fraught with discord, but also the complex, and even tragic human costs of religious fundamentalism, particularly Jewish fundamentalism supported by an Islamic context antagonistic to Jews but very much in sync with some Iranian Jewish views on women. Although the profound sadness of the manuscript is balanced by her ability to capture the feel of the place – the scents and textures of Jewish Iran – this is nonetheless a brave and unflinching portrayal of a little- known geographical corner of Jewish life.

Tom Wessels is an ecologist, teacher, and writer who directs the environmental biology program at Antioch New England Graduate School. Vermont is generally thought of as quintessen- tially old New England: small villages with white clapboard houses and tall church spires; family farms with red barns and grazing cows; and verdant fields lined with maple and white birch trees. But there’s another Vermont – virtually un- known to many – that is composed of untamed wilderness with an extraordinary variety of landscape, soils, trees, and wildflowers, in a variety perhaps unmatched in any other small region. These wild areas are among the state’s most beautiful and photogenic. Some are protected permanently, but many are not. Some are difficult to reach, even on foot; others are just a short stroll from a town or roadside. A. Blake Gardner has been trekking to wild areas throughout Vermont for more than a decade, and he photographs them, carefully and lovingly, with his large-format camera. To supplement Gardner’s exquisite portraits, Tom Wessels writes about how these wild areas came to be. He looks at the state’s geology, its natural history, and its culture. And he scrutinizes the threats to that diversity and discusses its preservation and steward- ship. Untamed Vermont serves as a pictorial reminder of the natural and fragile beauty of the wild areas within the Green Mountains, and how vital to our well-being the preserva- tion of that wildness is. In the summer of her twelfth year, a poor girl named Emily leaves home to work on a farm in rural Quebec. Besides cooking and cleaning, Emily’s chores include, every night, scraping the candlewax from the family's big stone hearth. The farmer and his wife love Emily, but when she falls ill and dies, another girl is hired to take her place. Soon, a strange event keeps recurring in the farmhouse: Every night, the new girl, Jenny, scrapes the wax from the hearth just as Emily did, but every morning, the wax is there again! What is going on? For two nights, the farmer and his wife fail to solve the mystery. But on the third night, the farmer’s wife snaps awake to find herself staring at...a ghost! In classic, supple prose, acclaimed author Susan Milord retells a legend passed down by a French-Canadian family since the 1830s. Illustrated with lively, beautiful paintings by award-winning artist Lydia Dabcovich, The Ghost on the Hearth is both a thrilling tale of the supernatural and an affectionate celebra- tion of long-ago rural life.

Reading her memoir of coming into her own as a lesbian, a woman, and a human being is like the best sort of long, ambling stories friends tell friends over innumerable pots of tea.” – Hanne Blank, author of Unruly Appetites “Claire Robson has written a warm family saga and an equally moving coming out story.

They are the Huayi or “Chinese overseas” and can be found not only in the thriving Chinese communities of the United States and Canada, but also in enclaves as far-reaching as Zimbabwe. In this book, twenty-two Chinese living and working outside of China tell us about their lives and what it means to be Chinese in non-Chinese societies. We meet a surgeon raised in Singapore but westernized in London who still believes in the value of Chinese medicine. A Chinese Canadian who bridles at the idea that you can’t be Chinese unless you speak a Chinese dialect. Individuals who are all loyal to their countries of citizenship and continue to observe the customs of their ancestral home. In compiling these personal accounts, Wei Djao, who was born in China and now lives near Seattle, undertook a quest that took her not only to many countries but also to the inner landscapes of the heart. Being Chinese is a highly personal book that bares the aspirations, despairs, and triumphs of real people as it makes an insightful and lasting contribution to Chinese diasporic studies. Wei Djao grew up in Shanghai and has lived in Canada, Hong Kong, and California. SEPTEMBER 240 pages, 6 x 9” 14 illus. pb $35.95 ISBN 0-8165-2302-9 Asian Studies/Cultural Studies Exquisite blankets, sarapes and ponchos handwoven by southwestern peoples are admired throughout the world. In his years of research, anthropologist Joe Ben Wheat studied thousands of these nineteenth- century southwestern textiles. His exhaustive work resulted in a book that establishes an essential baseline for understanding craft production. Blanket Weaving in the Southwest describes the evolution of southwestern textiles from the early historic period to the late nineteenth century, establishes a revised chronology for its development, and traces significant changes in materials, techniques, and designs. Throughout this gorgeous book, Wheat discusses and evaluates the distinct traits of the Pueblo, Navajo, and Spanish American blanket weaving traditions. More than 200 photos demonstrate these features, including 191 colour plates depicting a vast array of chief blankets, shoulder blankets, ponchos, sarapes, diyugi, mantas, and dresses. Joe Ben Wheat (1916-97) became the first Curator of Anthropology at the University of Colorado Museum in Boulder in 1953, where he remained until his retirement in 1986.

Veteran record producer and journalist Harvey Kubernik is a Los Angeles insider with ties to some of the most influential performers and producers in the music business. In this examination of the music and pop culture of the 1960s, we read Kubernik’s conversations with famous people who speak very freely: Ray Manzarek, Berry Gordy, Grace Slick, Andrew Loog Oldham, Jim Keltner, Jack Nitzsche, Chrissie Hynde, Ravi Shankar, and Keith Richards.  There is also an epilogue on Roger Steffens, a renowned scholar of reggae music. No matter how much you think you know about the pop culture of the 1960s, you will find new information here. Certain predictable people – the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan – come up in almost every interview. Other names prominent in the interviews are Phil Spector and Sonny Bono. Reading Kubernik’s interview with Marianne Faithful, we learn that she and Mick Jagger often listened to Vivaldi and Marvin Gaye in the mornings; Steven Van Zandt reveals that he is the son of a Goldwater Republican; Allen Ginsberg discloses that Bob Dylan tried, unsuccessfully, to get Phil Spector to produce a recording by Ginsberg.

His articles have appeared in Newsweek, the Chicago Tribune, Parents Magazine and Chicago Magazine. The words hit my ears like an air raid siren. I flinch, duck, and look up, but too late. A Hot Wheels fire engine – a metal truck about three inches long – comes flying over the balcony above my head, hits the wall, ricochets off a supporting beam and bang! Lands on the stove, right next to the mulled cider I am stirring for the Christmas party. I dash out of the kitchen and up the stairs, three at a time… Walker, my 12-year-old autistic son, is in the corner of the room bouncing wildly on a large inflated therapy ball, another Hot Wheels fire truck in his hand. He is still shouting the same line from a John Prine song even though to his right a tape player is blaring “Jingle Bell Rock” and to his left the video of “The Muppet Christmas Carol” is playing on a television set. By the time he was three, Walker’s parents were concerned enough about his delayed development to consult a paediatric neurolo- gist. Doctors diagnosed autism and issued a grim prognosis: “I hold out no hope for this child.” But they hadn’t accounted for Walker’s intelligence, affection, and sense of humour – or for the remarkable bonds that grew within his family. Walker’s father, Robert Hughes, tells a touching and inspiring story of discovering that their “perfect little boy had a problem.” With disarming honesty and humour, the book tells how a family copes and keeps hope alive despite the staggering difficulties autism presents. Readers seeking information about autism spectrum disorders often find it very difficult to find straightforward answers to their questions. In response to this, Diane Yapko has produced this practical resource in an easy to read question and answer format so readers can go directly to the questions that interest them. There is no need to sift through complex scientific literature or confusing professional jargon and readers can refer back to the text again and again as their needs dictate. The book is divided into sections on diagnosis and characteristics, causes, medical issues, treatments and intervention programs, and approaches. The last section is devoted to helpful resources for people coping with autism spectrum disorders, and lists relevant organizations and websites where more information is available. Clearly written, with special attention paid to ease-of-use and reference-friendly information, Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorders will undoubtedly become an essential source of autism information for parents and friends of children with autism, as well as teachers and professionals working with individuals on the autism spectrum.

Sean Connery’s tuxedo, Ursula Andress’ bikini, Oddjob’s bowler hat, and Q’s gadgets are just a few defining features of the 007 world examined in The James Bond Phenomenon. Drawn from the fields of literary, film, music, and cultural studies, the essays in this collection range from revitalised readings of Ian Fleming’s original spy novels to the analysis of Pussy Galore’s lesbianism, Miss Moneypenny’s filmic feminism, and Pierce Brosnan’s techno-fetishism. Together, the essays not only consider the James Bond novels and films in relation to their historical, political, and social contexts from the cold- war period onwards, but also examine the classic Bond canon from an array of theoreti- cal perspectives. What The James Bond Phenomenon shows is that there is much, much more to the 007 series than cheap thrills, fast cars, and beautiful women. Paul Rogers is one of the world’s leading security experts. Since September 11, he has been a regular guest on TV news chan- nels throughout America and Britain, where he has offered expert advice on the real implications of 9/11 and Bush’s “war on terror.” His articles in newspapers around the world, and in the web journal Open Democracy, have become essential reading for many thousands of people, including government officials, senior military, heads of UN agencies, opinion formers, journalists, and peace activists. A War on Terror is Paul Rogers’ radical assessment of Bush’s new policy, the way it has affected world security, and the grave implications that it holds for future peace, not only in the Middle East but throughout the world. Moving from the war in Afghanistan and its aftermath to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, the continuing development of Al- Qa’ida and its associates through to the war on Iraq, Rogers presents a uniquely cogent analysis of these rapid and traumatic events. For the US, in particular, the post-9/11 world is one in which it is essential to maintain firm control of international security, extending to pre-emptive military action. In this book, Rogers demonstrates how futile, mistaken, and deeply counter-productive that belief is, and points the way to more effective routes to a more just and secure world.

For his work on worldwide human rights he won the Letelier- Moffitt Human Rights Award. His articles and columns have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Nation, The Inter- national Herald Tribune, USA Today, Monthly Review, Rolling Stone and many other papers. Saul Landau is an internationally known scholar, author, journalist, poet, and activist. This, his latest book, is a scathing account of George W. Bush’s world before and after the 9/11 terrorist attacks that will appeal to anyone who is disenchanted with the cynicism of Bush’s government, and the blatant imperialism US international policy – or those who just want to learn about what’s happening in US politics. Landau covers the topical and controversial issues – from terrorism and US foreign policy to Bush’s wondrous election victory; from Enron, Chile, and Pinochet to Cuba, the Middle East, the IMF, the environment, and sexual and cultural politics. He delves into the erosion of civil liberties and the proliferation of empire under the guise of pre-empting the scourge of terrorism. Landau reveals how Bush protects “his” terrorists – those who perpetrate violence against Castro’s Cuba, and to whom he owes his presidency. He also examines how Bush has appointed former officials to high level posts in his cabinet despite their membership in a conspiracy to sell weapons of mass destruction to Iran in the 1980s. This is an entertaining read from one of America’s foremost cultural and political commentators. Above all, Landau makes a convincing case for the necessity of activism – the book is not only funny but is also a ringing call for citizens to participate in making their own history. The trial of Slobodan Milosevic has raised the prospect of many former political leaders being tried for crimes against humanity. War crimes tribunals and the international criminal courts are supposedly independent mecha- nisms through which we can administer international justice, and through which tyrants and errant regimes can be brought to account. But is it really that simple? For example, although Milosevic wound up on trial at The Hague, other attempts at war crimes prosecutions – notably Pinochet and Sharon – face insurmountable obstacles. Despite the hopes raised about “an end to impunity,” the United States is currently exempting itself entirely from the jurisdiction of the new International Criminal Court. This book by renowned scholar Michael Mandel offers the first truly critical account of the war crimes movement. Mandel argues that this movement is not actually about ending war crimes, or impunity for war crimes, but about selectively punishing “the usual suspects” as part of the imperial strategy of the great powers – primarily the United States. Mandel explores the moral and legal debates over the recent wars in Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq, supposed exercises in “humanitarian intervention” and “self-defence.” He analyzes the role the war crimes movement has played in these wars, variously promoting them or not stopping them, despite their immorality and illegality.

She has published extensively on social development and social policy in the Arab world. On 15 February 2003, over 6 million people around the world marched in protest against a threatened war on Iraq. The protest was unprecedented in world history as it preceded war. In effect, an international coalition of people was attempting to assert its will onto the stage of power politics to forestall a war demanded by the world’s only superpower. In the light of these remarkable events, it is now more important than ever to properly assess Iraq’s role in world politics, and the impact that sanctions and war have had on the people of the country. This book serves both as a history of the region, an assessment of its role in the broader political landscape, and a moving account of the day-to-day reality experienced by the people of Iraq. The authors look at Iraq’s -- and Saddam Hussein’s -- political role in the Middle East and examine the role of the UN, sanctions, and warfare. They then assess American policy towards Iraq and how this has changed since September 11, setting it within the broader context of America’s involvement in the Middle East. They offer a historical analysis of Russian-Iraqi relations. Finally, they look at social policy within Iraq, explaining how the internal welfare system has collapsed since the Gulf War, and the continu- ing effects of depleted uranium. There is no doubt that war will have a serious effect on the Iraqi people. This timely account helps us understand the true effect that war will have, and how we can establish more just forms of social intervention in the future. Modern Jihad: The New Economy of Terror propels the reader into the netherworld of illegal organizations. From the Contras to Al Qaeda, Loretta Napoleoni maps out the arteries of an international economic system that feeds armed groups the world over with an endless supply of cash. Chasing terror money, she takes the reader from CIA headquarters to the smuggling routes of the Far East, from the back rooms of Wall Street to Hawala exchanges in the Middle East. The “economy of terror” that Napoleoni identifies is a 1.5 trillion-dollar fast-growing economic system. It is made up of illegal businesses, such as arms and narcotics trading, oil and diamonds smuggling, as well as charitable donations, profits from legal businesses, and an intricate system of finance. Most importantly, Napoleoni reveals the interdependency between economies run by armed groups and western economies. This ranges from the consumption of narcot- ics to the production of arms, and from the recycling of illegal money to speculation on the stock markets, as occurred prior to 9/11. Loretta Napoleoni is the first author to tackle the issues raised by September 11 from a specifically economic perspective. Presenting an astonishing array of evidence taken from extensive research and interviews, the book is a fascinating account of controversial issues that lie at the heart of many of today’s international problems.

C A PLUTO PRESS In times of war, human rights violations often go unreported. In Israel and the Occupied Territories, where ongoing conflict has killed many thousands, abuses of human rights are commonplace, but these stories seldom reach the outside world. This book redresses that balance: taken from documents produced by international human rights groups, it provides an authoritative account of human rights violations that have taken place on both sides of the conflict since the start of the second Intifada in September 2000. Unlike conventional reportage or partisan polemic, these accounts of abuses and violations are careful not to over-dramatize the story. Instead, they offer as objective an account as possible of the degradations that both Israelis and Palestinians have suffered. The reports are taken from groups including Amnesty International, The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, The Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group, and Human Rights. Almost all have remained largely unknown to the wider world until now. Reporters without Borders – or Reporters sans Frontières – is a well-established international NGO, modelled on Médecins sans Frontières.

It is essential reading for anyone who wants a full understanding of the way religious extremism has affected the political develop- ment of the modern Israeli state. Acclaimed writer and human rights cam- paigner Israel Shahak was, up until his death in 2001, one of the most respected of Israel’s peace activists. He was, in the words of Gore Vidal, “the latest – if not the last – of the great prophets.” Written by Shahak, with American scholar Norton Mezvinsky, this book shows how Jewish fundamentalism in Israel is of great political importance. The authors trace the history and develop- ment of this fundamentalism, examining the various different strains, and conclude that Jewish fundamentalism is essentially hostile to democracy because it opposes equality for all citizens, and therefore poses a considerable threat to democracy in Israel. Israel Shahak was a resident of the Warsaw Ghetto and a survivor of Bergen-Belsen. He arrived in Palestine in 1945 and lived there until his death in 2001. Norton Mezvinsky is Professor of History at Central Connecticut State University.
