Pyne Another blockbuster from one of the world’s foremost environmental historians. Pyne is a master of rich detail married to grand narrative, and Canada provides a huge subject worthy of those talents. He portrays that great northern country in all of its ecological complexity and then shows how a complex political entity of nation and province interacted to forge policy. This book sets a new standard for all future writing about Canadian lands and peoples. – Donald Worster, author, Nature’s Economy: A History of Ecological Ideas Fire is a defining element in Canadian land and life. With few exceptions, Canada’s forests and prairies have evolved with fire; its peoples have exploited fire and sought to protect themselves from its excesses; and since Confederation, the country has devised institutions to connect fire and society. Awful Splendour narrates the history of this grand saga. The story has three parts. Torch sketches the historical geography of fire from the retreat of the ice sheets to the advent of agricul- ture, with human control limited to ignition. Axe focuses on the era of European colonization and describes what happens when people create new fuels through cutting. Engine traces the impact of industrialization. This section tells the story of institutions and events, province by province, and for the federal government, era by era, through the early 1980s. An epilogue summarizes recent developments. Fire remains a vital presence in the boreal environment. How Canadians have chosen to relate to it says a great deal about their national character. Awful Splendour will interest geographers, histo- rians, and members of the fire community. Stephen J. Pyne is a professor in the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University.

Taking the Air remedies this gap: it scrutinizes the policy-making process for national parks since the mid-1950s and interrogates the rationale and policies that govern them. Paul Kopas argues that national parks and park policy reflect not only environmental concerns but also Canadian political and social attitudes. Taking the Air analyzes the role and contribution of various policy participants, including bureaucrats, the general public, interest groups, Aboriginal peoples, and the courts. These groups’ agendas play out against a background of ideas that influ- ence the shape and weight of their contributions. In the context of Canadian nation-building and environmental policy, this book will be useful to policy analysts, planners, aca- demics, and students in fields ranging from environmental studies to tourism and recreation. It will also interest general readers concerned with Canada’s parks and environment. Paul Kopas teaches political science at the University of British Columbia. December 2007 256 pages, 2 tables, 6 x 9” 0-7748-1329-6 / 978-0-7748-1329-7 NEW HARDCOVER $85.00 Genetically Modified Diplomacy The Global Politics of Agricultural Biotechnology and the Environment Peter Andrée An exceptionally well-written, theoretically sophisticated, and timely book. Andrée has provided an important service to readers who have an interest in understanding in fine detail the complex nature of environmental politics in a globalizing world. – Michael D. Mehta, editor of Biotechnology Unglued: Science, Society, and Social Cohesion Genetically Modified Diplomacy traces the emergence of  the 2000 Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety and the discourse of precaution toward GEOs that the protocol institutional- ized internationally. The precautionary view is a significant departure from the way the biotechnology industry first presented GEOs to the world. Peter Andrée explains this rever- sal in the “common-sense” understanding of genetic engineering, and discusses the new debates it has engendered. Genetically Modified Diplomacy will be of particular interest to readers in the fields of environmental politics, biotechnology, and international relations. Peter Andrée is an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.

Grounded in real world examples, it will be very useful to those charged with implementing programs in wildlife, fisheries, climate change, and other management areas. – Arthur J. Hanson, Distinguished Fellow and Senior Scientist, International Institute for Sustainable Development In Canada and around the world, governments are shifting away from regulatory models for governing natural and cultural re- sources.  New concerns with adaptive processes, feedback learning, and flexible partnerships are reshaping the resource governance landscape. Meanwhile, ideas about collaboration and learning are converging around the idea of adaptive co-management. This book provides a comprehensive synthesis of the core con- cepts, strategies, and tools of this emerging field, informed by a diverse group of researchers and practitioners with over two decades of experience. It offers a diverse set of case studies that reveal the challenges and implications of adaptive co-management thinking and synthesizes lessons for natural and cultural resource governance in a wide range of contexts. Adaptive Co-Management is not only a timely book but also a useful concept for resource governance in a world marked by rapid socio- ecological change. It will be of interest to researchers, environmen- tal practitioners, policy-makers, and students in fields across the political and environmental spectrum.

Bose While existing studies on development- induced displacement have focused on issues such as resettlement and compensation for those displaced, Development’s Displacements seeks to address displacement as a broad and multilayered phenomenon. A series of illustrative case studies drawn from around the globe provide causal accounts of why and how displacement occurs, what its effects on communities, ecosystems, and economies look like, and the normative or ethical positions held by key actors involved. Contributors offer economic, political, and cultural analyses, as well as extensive ethnographic field research, to present a picture of displacement that illustrates the depth and the breadth of the issue. Peter Vandergeest is an associate professor of sociology and Director of the York Centre for Asian Research at York University. Pablo Idahosa is an associate professor in social sciences and Coordinator of the African Studies Program, York University. Pablo S. Bose is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Vermont and a Research Associate with the Centre for Refugee Studies at York University. 2006, 288 pages, 4 tables, 6 x 9” 0-7748-1205-2 / 978-0-7748-1205-4 HC $85.00 0-7748-1206-0 / 978-0-7748-1206-1 NEW IN PAPER $34.95 ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES The Archive of Place Unearthing the Pasts of the Chilcotin Plateau William J. Turkel Hunters at the Margin Native People and Wildlife Conservation in the Northwest Territories John Sandlos William Turkel’s great achievement in this book is to show how once taken-for-granted accounts of geophysical processes, Aboriginal occupancy, and colonial settler society have now come to underpin sharply conflicting understandings of history. – Julie Cruikshank, author, Do Glaciers Listen? The Archive of Place weaves together a series of narratives about environmental history in British Columbia’s Chilcotin Plateau. In the mid-1990s, the Chilcotin was at the centre of three territorial conflicts. Opposing groups, in their struggle to control the fate of the region and its resources, invoked different under- standings of its past – and different types of evidence – to justify their actions. Turkel uses these controversies as case studies to exam- ine how people interpret material traces to reconstruct past events, the conditions under which such interpretation takes place, and the role that this interpretation plays in historical consciousness and social memory. It is a wide- ranging and original study that extends the span of conventional historical research. William J. Turkel teaches history at the University of Western Ontario.

Hunters at the Margin could not be more central to current efforts to rethink the histories of nature and Native peoples alike. – Karl Jacoby, author, Crimes Against Nature Hunters at the Margin examines the conflict in the Northwest Territories between Native hunters and conservationists over three big game species: the wood bison, the muskox, and the caribou. John Sandlos argues that the introduction of game regulations, national parks, and game sanctuaries was central to the assertion of state authority over the traditional hunting cultures of the Dene and Inuit. His archival research undermines the assumption that conservationists were motivated solely by enlightened preservationism, revealing instead that commercial interests were integral to wildlife management in Canada. John Sandlos is an assistant professor of his- tory at Memorial University of Newfoundland.

This is a very good synthesis of an important topic that should be of interest to scholars in many fields and to people in many walks of life. – Martin V. Melosi, author, Effluent America and The Sanitary City To most, the flush of a toilet is routine – the way we banish waste and ensure cleanli- ness. It is safe, efficient, necessary, nonpo- litical, and utterly unremarkable. Yet Jamie Benidickson’s examination of the social and legal history of sewage in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom demonstrates that the uncontroversial reputation of flushing is deceptive. At a time when community water quality can no longer be taken for granted, The Culture of Flushing investigates and clarifies the murky evolution of waste treatment. Jamie Benidickson teaches at the Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa.

Without the knowledge contained in this book, we could lose the right to control our water in an increasingly thirsty world. – Maude Barlow, National Chairperson, Council of Canadians Canada’s leading water experts paddle up- stream against the flow of conventional wisdom in this excellent book. Mandatory reading for all people concerned about the future of fresh water in Canada. – David R. Boyd, author, Unnatural Law Arguing that weak governance is at the heart of Canada’s water problems, this timely book identifies our key failings; explores debates over jurisdiction, transboundary waters, exports, and privatization; and maps out solutions to protect our most important resource. Karen Bakker is a professor of geography at the University of British Columbia. 2006, 440 pages, 6 x 9” 25 b/w photos, 4 figures 0-7748-1339-3 / 978-0-7748-1339-6 HC $85.00 0-7748-1340-7 / 978-0-7748-1340-2 PB $29.95 Eau Canada The Future of Canada’s Water Edited by Karen Bakker Farming in a Changing Climate Agricultural Adaptation in Canada Edited by Ellen Wall, Barry Smit, and Johanna Wandel Canadian farming has evolved under the influence of climate and weather – a process that continues with climate change. In farming systems across the country, effective risk management is necessary to deal with drought, flooding, and extreme weather, and to adapt to altered climate and weather conditions. Unfortunately, climate- change risks and opportunities are poorly understood among researchers and policy-makers in the Canadian agri-food sector. This book addresses that gap. Farming in a Changing Climate provides a wide-ranging synopsis of what climate change means for Canadian agriculture, explores different approaches to the topic, and presents examples of current research. It covers all agricultural regions and a wide variety of commodity production and farming systems. Comments from ag- ricultural producers and policy-makers add a practical component to the book and emphasize the value of the applied research. This comprehensive survey synthesizes twenty years of research on climate change and Canadian agriculture. The book will be of interest to scholars in environmental studies, geography, and sociology; policy analysts and policy-makers; and representatives of the agri-food industry. Ellen Wall is a research scientist in environmental sciences; Barry Smit is a professor of geography and Canada Research Chair in Global Environmental Change; and Johanna Wandel is a post- doctoral research associate with the Department of Geography – all at the University of Guelph.

The state directly intervened in planning and imple- menting land settlement. This book examines this process and assesses its consequences. James Murton argues that the state’s relation- ship to the environment was determined in the early twentieth century by the idea of centralized, “scientific” management of social problems by experts – known as progressivism or new liberalism. Creating a Modern Countryside offers a new way to understand the human-environment relationship in the 20th century, and it shows how this relationship shaped the province we live in today. James Murton is an assistant professor of history at Nipissing University in Ontario.

It brings together approaches and questions from sport history and cultural history … By situating the discussion so effectively in the context of current work in cultural his- tory, the manuscript provides an excellent way of encouraging readers to examine published materials in a new light. – Colin Coates, Canada Research Chair in Cultural Landscapes, York University Despite Canada’s vast wilderness and outdoor heritage, the history of sport hunting remains at the periphery of academic thought. Hunting for Empire writes sport hunting into Canadian scholarship and provides a starting point for further study. Hunting for Empire offers a cultural history of sport and imperial- ism as revealed through 19th-century British big-game hunting and exploration narratives from the western interior of Rupert’s Land. Greg Gillespie integrates critical perspectives from cultural history, cultural studies, literary criticism, and cultural geography to analyze the themes of authorship, sport, science, and nature. Blending these interdisciplinary perspectives, he produces a unique theoretical lens to study narratives of early imperial sport hunting that prevailed before the rise of western Canada’s hunting tourism industry in the late 19th century. Sharply written and evocatively illustrated, Hunting for Empire will appeal to students and scholars of culture, sport, geography, and history, and to general readers interested in stories of hunting, empire, and the Canadian wilderness. Greg Gillespie is an assistant professor in the Department of Com- munications, Popular Culture, and Film at Brock University.

Stoett Critical Policy Studies Edited by Michael Orsini and Miriam Smith Critical Policy Studies is, quite simply, a breath of fresh air. It is a timely intervention into the study of public policy in Canada that covers important substantive ground and raises critical questions about the bound- aries of policy studies as a field. This book will excite undergraduate and graduate students and stimulate new approaches to the study of public policy in Canada. – Leah Vosko, editor of Precarious Employ- ment Critical Policy Studies conveys a clear sense that there is much anew and exciting in the field of policy analysis in Canada. It will occupy a significant place in the discipline, opening up new avenues for scholars and policy-makers, and offering a distinctive and enlightening perspective for political science students. – Alain Noël, editor of Federalism and La- bour Market Policy Traditional definitions of public policy in Canada have been challenged in recent years by globalization, the transition to a knowledge-based economy, and the rise of new technologies. Critical Policy Studies describes how new policy problems such as border screening and global warming have been catapulted onto the agenda in the neo-liberal era. The book also surveys the recent evolution of critical approaches to policy studies, which have transformed decades-old issues. Critical Policy Studies provides an alternative to existing approaches to policy studies; it will be welcomed by scholars, students, and practitioners of political science and public policy.

Yet, while most scholars and policy-makers recognize the connection between these two interrelated branches of study, no substantial dialogue exists between them. This volume seeks to fill the lacuna with an original synthesis. International Ecopolitical Theory assembles some of the top thinkers in the field to provide an invaluable overview of the main critical strands of theory in global environmental politics. By framing the environmental question within a histori- cal and philosophical context, it high- lights problems inherent in economistic and managerial approaches to sustainable development policy. Emphasizing environ- mental consciousness as a cultural norm in an evolving set of global relations, it tackles important debates on naturalism, founda- tionalism, and radical ecology. Ultimately, it makes a convincing case for the necessity of a critical international relations theory duly informed by the paradoxes of ecologi- cal governance. With contributions from experts in political science, philosophy, ecology, history, geography, and systems theory, this collection will have an impact across many disciplines.

Robinson cuts through the standard terms of the “liberal-multiculturalism” debate and reconfigures them in a way that will fundamentally change the debate. His book is like a breath of fresh air on the subject. – Don Carmichael, co-author, Democracy, Rights, and Well-Being in Canada Andrew Robinson argues that liberal multi- culturalism can be justified without privi- leging either individual rights or universal, communal principles. By appealing to the deeper value of meaningful life, he shows how autonomy and community are actually interdependent. He concludes by illustrating – with reference to national and ethnic mi- norities, indigenous peoples, and traditional communities – the policy principles that can be derived from this position. Andrew M. Robinson is an assistant professor of contemporary studies and political science at Wilfrid Laurier University. Spring 2007, 216 pages, 6 x 9” 0-7748-1313-X / 978-0-7748-1313-6 HC $85.00 Bringing the Passions Back In draws upon the history of political theory to shed light on the place of emotions in politics; it illus- trates how sophisticated thinking about the relationship between reason and passion can inform contemporary democratic politi- cal theory. These re-discovered resources are used to revise the rationalist and idealist model for political life in Anglo-American versions of liberalism. The rationalist ideal has been met with cynicism in progressive circles for undermining the role of emotion and passion in the public realm. By exploring the social and political implications of the emotions in the history of ideas, contributors examine new paradigms for liberalism and offer new appreciations of the poten- tial for passion in political philosophy and practice. This important overview of the place of emotions within the history of political thought sheds new light on problems facing contemporary liberal and democratic political theory. Bringing the Passions Back In will interest scholars and students in political theory, the history of ideas, sociology, psychology, cultural studies, and philosophy.

Wiseman’s book is provocative, stimulating, rich in historical detail and insights, and written with both skill and boldness. For those interested in the puzzle of Canadian identity, it doesn’t get better than this. – David Taras, co-author, The Last Word: Media Coverage of the Supreme Court of Canada In erudite, engaging prose, In Search of Canadian Political Culture explores ways of understanding Canada’s multi-layered and diverse political culture. It makes the case for bottom-up, regional analyses of Canadian politics in order to fill a gap in how we think and write about the country. Wiseman focuses on the interplay of five broad waves of immigra- tion, plumbs their ideological orientations, and presents provincial political parties and institutions as their exoskeletons. The book’s first half explores and builds upon national perspectives and es- tablished conceptual pathways by examining Canada’s ideological foundations, the significance of formative events, economic struc- tures and classes, and survey research. Throughout, Wiseman treats constitutions and institutions as culture. The second half traverses the regions from east to west, highlighting the singularity of each and assigning to the provinces inventive metaphorical images that conjure up the politics of other or older societies. The most thorough review of Canadian political culture to be written in a generation, In Search of Canadian Political Culture will interest specialists in Canadian political culture and generalists in Canadian politics. Nelson Wiseman is an associate professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto. An expert on social democracy and current political trends, he is frequently called upon by the media.

Although “new” social movements are often seen as reinforcing a “postmaterialist” agenda focusing on identity and belonging, implicitly undermining an agenda of economic redistribution, Matt James convincingly shows that social movements have advanced material- ist agendas from the very beginning, and have not stopped doing so. A compelling book. – Keith Banting, co-editor, Multiculturalism and the Welfare State Matt James is an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Victoria. A truly innovative analysis on both conceptual and empirical grounds. Very few Canadian stud- ies of social movement politics have a compara- ble historical reach ... and none to date have re- interpreted social movement action via a critique of New Politics theory and its applications.

Stewart A monumental achievement of impeccable schol- arship. Conventional Choices combines astute quantitative analysis of a remarkably wide- ranging data set with a thorough familiarity with the secondary literature of Maritime (and Canadian) politics and an encyclopaedic culling of newspaper sources ... It will take its place among the key contributions to Maritime politics and to the study of leadership conventions. – Graham White, author, Cabinets and First Ministers Breaking new ground, Conventional Choices examines twenty-five different leadership elections in the Maritime provinces. The Nunavut explores the relationship between political culture and the development of Nunavut as a distinct political entity in Canada. Ailsa Henderson brings together primary data from archives, interviews, surveys, and election results to offer a comprehensive account of the attitudes and behaviours of those living in Canada’s newest territory. In the first half of the book, Henderson examines the impact of three cultural fragments on contemporary political life: traditional Inuit approaches to governance, federal efforts to integrate Inuit into the political system, and the institutional structures of the Northwest Territories. In the second, she links these features to contemporary political attitudes and behaviour. Henderson as- sesses the impact of the negotiation strategy on the Nunavut Land Claim Agreement and Political Accord, the effect of consensus politics on electoral campaigns and legislative proceedings, and the disposition of the electorate, particularly toward current political arrangements. Henderson argues that there is something distinct emerging among the Inuit that constitutes part of their political culture. Her book will appeal to political scientists, sociologists, and others interested in culture and politics, Aboriginal studies, and northern development. Ailsa Henderson is an assistant professor of political science at the University of Toronto. analysis draws on an extraordinarily rich data set spanning thirty-two years to explore the backgrounds, attitudes, and motivations of those who select party leaders. It is an impressive study that offers fresh insights into leadership selection and Maritime party politics. Ian Stewart is a professor of political science at Acadia University. David K.

In a globalizing world, new opportunities for indig- enous governance may lead to the transformation of indigenous socio-economic well-being. Navigating Neoliberalism argues that neoliberal globalization, which drives government policy toward First Nations in Canada, also drives First Nation self-determination. The author studies the development of First Nations governance in several policy fields, including health, education, economic devel- opment, and housing. What emerges is a theoretical and empirical picture of one First Nation as it navigates its way through neolib- eralism. The author concludes that, contrary to popular belief that First Nations suffer in an age of state retrenchment, privatization, and decentralization, the opposite may be true. Indeed, for the Mikisew Cree First Nation the end result is an opportunity for further self-determination. Navigating Neoliberalism tackles a topical issue central to Canadian politics and Canadian federalism. It will be of interest to students and practitioners of public policy, political economy, and political science, as well as members and leaders in First Nations communi- ties.

Organizing the Transnational contributes to an emerging body of scholarship on transnationalism and diasporas in Canada in several important ways. It attempts to articulate a cultural politics of transnationalism by concentrating on Asian and Latin American migrants in Canada, rather than focusing separately on economic, political, or social issues. Contributors also move beyond the con- ventional focus on states and migrants to consider a wide array of institutions, actors, and forms of mobilization that shape transna- tional engagements and spaces. By presenting a diverse set of perspectives, including work by activists from the immigrant advocacy and NGO sectors as well as academics, Organizing the Transnational offers a unique approach to transnational and comparative migration studies that will appeal to sociologists, political scientists, activists, and advocates.

Despite billions of dollars spent on the “Indian problem,” Aboriginal people remain the poorest in the country. Because the stereotype of the “lazy Indian” is never far from the surface, many Canadians wonder if the prob- lem lay with “Indians” themselves. John Lutz traces Aboriginal people’s involvement in the new economy, and their displacement from it, from the first arrival of Europeans to the 1970s. Drawing upon oral histories, manu- scripts, newspaper accounts, biographies, and statistical analysis, Lutz shows that Aboriginal people flocked to the workforce and prospered in the late 19th century. The roots of today’s wide- spread unemployment and “welfare dependency” date only from the 1950s, when deliberate and inadvertent policy choices – what Lutz terms the “white problem”– drove Aboriginal people out of the capitalist, wage, and subsistence economies, offering them welfare as “compensation.” Makúk invites readers into a dialogue with the past with visual imagery and an engaging narrative that gives a voice to Aboriginal peoples and other historical figures. Students, scholars, policy- makers (Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal), and a wide public (who care to bring the spectres of the past into the light of the present) will find the book insightful and invaluable.

These stories, which both indigenous peoples and Europeans tell about their first encounters with one another, are enormously valuable historical records – but their relevance extends beyond the past. For all their importance, contact stories have not been systematically or critically evaluated as a genre. Myth and Memory explores the narratives of indigenous and newcomer populations from around the world. It illustrates how indigenous and explorer accounts of the same meetings reflect fundamentally different systems of thought, and it focuses on the cultural misunderstandings embedded in these stories. The contributors discuss the contemporary relevance, production, and performance of Aboriginal and European contact narratives, and they introduce new tools for interpreting the genre. They argue that we are still in the contact zone, striving to understand the meaning of contact and the relationship between indigenous and settler populations.

It moves beyond current analyses of cultural conflicts and discrimination in academic institutions to provide an indigenous postcolonial critique of the modern university. Rauna Kuokkanen argues that attempts by universities to be inclusive are unsuccessful because they do not embrace indigenous worldviews. Programs established to act as bridges between mainstream and indigenous cultures ignore their ontological and epistemic differences and, while offering support and assistance, place the NATIVE STUDIES responsibility of adapting wholly on the student. Indigenous students and staff are expected to leave behind their cultural perspectives and epistemes in order to adopt Western values. Reshaping the University advocates a radical shift in the approach to cultural conflicts within the academy and proposes a new logic, grounded in principles central to indigenous philosophies.

Although these narratives and knowledge systems are threatened constantly by the encroachment of Western values, Elders and storytellers have kept traditional and life experi- ence stories alive in their hearts and minds. Indigenous Storywork is about the power of stories to educate and heal the heart, mind, body, and spirit. Indigenous storywork involves weaving together the seven principles of respect, respon- sibility, reciprocity, reverence, wholism, interrelatedness, and syn- ergy to understand the characteristics of stories, to appreciate the process of storytelling, to establish a receptive learning context, and to engage in wholistic meaning-making. It is also an example of indigenous methodology based on the knowledge and teach- ings of Elders. Coyote, the indigenous Trickster, participates in the learning journey to help us appreciate the joy, beauty, and power of indigenous storywork for education and research. This book demonstrates how an indigenous knowledge system facilitates a valuable meaning-making process through storywork.

(Skip) Ray entered the field in the early 1970s. This collection examines this transforma- tion, and it extends the scholarship on Canada’s Aboriginal history in new directions. New Histories for Old combines essays by senior historians, geog- raphers, and anthropologists with contributions by new voices in these fields. Dealing with regions from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Coast, contributors examine the fur trade, treaties, and In- dian policy, and they explore the relationship between Natives and newcomers in the fur trade and elsewhere. This collection relates recent historiographical developments to earlier scholarship by of- fering a snapshot of the kinds of inquiry established and emerging scholars presently conduct. New Histories for Old is a major contribution to understanding Native-newcomerrelations, Native struggles for land and resources under colonialism, “Indian” policy and treaties, mobility and migration, disease and well-being, and questions about “doing” Native history.

For a long time they were viewed simply as a subset of the Northwest Coast culture area, and as a result of early as- similative pressures it was thought that little of their culture remained to be preserved. In the early 1950s, however, anthropologist Wayne Suttles was among the first to publish pioneering and sustained research about the Coast Salish, contending that they were worthy of study in their own right. Be of Good Mind is a necessary follow-up to Suttles’ seminal work. This is the first book-length effort to incorporate Aboriginal perspectives directly. It offers a broad inter- disciplinary approach, bringing together the views of Aboriginal leaders, anthropologists, historians, archaeologists, and linguists. Be of Good Mind reveals how Coast Salish lives and identities have been reshaped by two colo- nizing nations and by networks of kinfolk, spiritual practices, and ways of understanding landscape.

Thecouple’s three sons grew up with their mother’s hunter/warrior culture and their father’s European culture. As adults, they lived adventurously in Montreal and St Thomas, where they were accepted and loved by fellow citizens while publicly retaining their Ojibwa heritage. The Ermatingers contrasts the “European” commercial and trading society in urban Montreal, where Charles was brought up, with the Ojibwa hunter/warrior values of Mananowe’s society.

It covers elements of the history of hunting from the pre-colonial period to the present in all parts of Canada, featuring essays by practitioners and scholars of hunting and by pro- and anti-hunting lobbyists.

Topics include hunting identities; hunting and The Culture of Hunting in Canada Edited by Jean L. Manore and Dale G. Miner Kiumajut [Talking Back] examines the struggle between Inuit of Canada’s North and Crown administration during critical decades in Inuit and Canadian history. Until the 1950s, Inuit lived free from government interference and control; in the next two dec- ades, an increasingly powerful northern administration sought to impose its policies and practices on Inuit communities. Drawing upon new material compiled from archival sources and oral interviews conducted during three seasons of community- based research, Peter Kulchyski and Frank Tester demonstrate how a deeply flawed set of scientific practices around counting animal populations led policy makers to develop strict policies that cur- tailed the activities of Inuit hunters. Animal management became a justification for controlling hunters and, in practice, was “hunter management.” However, as the administration attempted to im- pose its policies, Inuit resisted. Kulchyski and Tester look closely at Inuit legal challenges, petitions, and the activities of the first Inuit community council to trace how Inuit began to “talk back” to the Canadian state. Kiumajut examines a range of issues pertinent to community development in Nunavut. It will appeal to scholars and students in Native studies, political science, law, and geography, and it will engage a general reading public interested in the Canadian North.

Julie Macfarlane offers a provocative and hopeful vision of the “new lawyer,” who recognizes the steep price of a single-minded devotion to adversarial advocacy and has chosen to embrace a more inclusive calling – conflict resolution advocacy. With Professor Macfarlane’s guidance, it may be possible to reclaim the pragmatic nobility of the legal profession. – Nancy A. Welsh, Professor of Law, Dickinson School of Law, The Pennsylvania State University The image of the adversarial “client warrior” dominates histori- cal notions of the lawyer. Indeed, a zealous commitment to client advocacy remains one of the core norms of the legal model. How- ever, structural changes, both in the justice system and the legal profession itself – in particular the shift towards conflict resolution rather than protracted litigation – have rendered the “warrior” no- tion obsolete. The new lawyer’s skills go beyond court battles to encompass negotiation, mediation, and restorative justice initiatives. Julie Macfarlane sets out the parameters of practitioners’ evolving roles, articulating legal and ethical complexities in a variety of contexts drawn from Canadian and American legal literature as well as rel- evant documents from other disciplines. The result is an extremely thoughtful exploration of the increasing impact of “alternative” consensus-seeking strategies on the lawyer-client relationship, as well as on the legal system itself. The New Lawyer will be of interest to lawyers, law professors, law students, members of professional regulatory bodies, mediators, justice officials, and anyone who works with lawyers.

Moreover, it is a vital contribution to the current political debates regarding the best approaches to deal with the “drug problem” … Her work is original and will stimulate theoretical and political debates on current practices of rehabilitation or treatment in the criminal justice system. – Dany Lacombe, professor of sociology, Simon Fraser University Attitudes toward crime, criminals, and re- habilitation have shifted considerably, yet the idea that there is a causal link between drug addiction and crime prevails. As law reformers call for addiction treatment as a remedy to the failing war on drugs, it is also time to consider the serious implica- tions of joining legal and therapeutic practices in an assumedly benevolent bid to cure the offender. Inspired by the works of Foucault, Latour, and Goffman, Criminal Artefacts casts doubt on the assumption that drugs lie at the heart of crime. Case studies from drug treatment courts and addiction treatment programs illustrate the tensions between law and psychology, treatment and punish- ment, and conflicting theories of addiction. This interdisciplinary book will appeal to students, academics, and practitioners in law, social theory, criminology, criminal justice, addictions, cultural studies, sociol- ogy, and science studies.

Wright This is a rich research study of the arguments that trial and appeal court judges use in sentencing. It examines a variety of situations and people rarely encountered in the research literature, and successfully argues that sen- tences are still less affected by changes in laws than by judges’ values and interpretations of these laws. – Marge Reitsma-Street, Professor, Studies in Policy and Practice, University of Victoria In the 1980s, Canada witnessed a public outcry over child sexual abuse cases that were being reported in the media. Elected officials sought a remedy not through policy changes or other social mechanisms but rather through legal reforms. Amendments were made to the Criminal Code of Canada and sexual assault was redefined. The word “rape” was replaced with a continuum of sexual assault categories intended to reflect the full range of sexually intrusive behaviours. Most women’s groups, having fought for recognition of harm done to women and children, supported this legislation, though some questioned the approach. Margaret Wright examines how the courts have dealt with child sexual abuse cases since then and what effect the “resort to law” has had. Analyzing the sentencing phase of these cases, she demonstrates that although the laws may have changed, their interpretation still depends on the social construction of children at the court level and on judges’ own understanding of what constitutes child sexual abuse. Judicial Decision Making in Child Sexual Abuse Cases is a rich and detailed study of the court process that will be welcomed by students and scholars of law and society, social work, criminal justice, and social policy.

Chunn, Susan B. Boyd, and Hester Lessard This is an absolutely excellent collection that gets to the heart of a number of very important policy debates in Canada from a feminist legal perspective. The two major strands that weave through all of the papers – backlash and the effects of neoliberalism – are very important both theoretically and from an activist perspective. Greater understand- ing of how these larger social processes work will provide significant strength to scholarly and activist communities. – Professor Audrey Kobayashi, Queen’s Research Chair in the Department of Geography, Queen’s University The image of “backlash” is pervasive in contemporary debates about the impact of second-wave feminism on law and policy, but systematic research on the subject is lacking. Reaction and Resis- tance addresses that gap. It analyzes late 20th-century responses to feminism, and asks: to what extent does the concept of backlash accurately explain reactions to feminism over time? The contributors apply multidisciplinary insights to analyze reaction and resistance to feminism in different areas of law and policy, including child custody, child poverty, sexual harassment, and sexual assault. Collectively, their studies paint a more com- plicated, often contradictory, picture of feminism, law, and social change than the popular image of backlash suggests. Reaction and Resistance offers feminists and other activists empiri- cally grounded knowledge that can be used to develop legal and political strategies for change. Dorothy E.

This collection of essays brings together scholars from law, political science, and history to trace the evolution of multiculturalism within the constitution and to explore issues central to modern debates on multicultural law and policy. Multiculturalism and the Canadian Constitution examines the con- stitutional, institutional, and legal aspects of two vital dimensions of “difference” in Canada: multiculturalism and federalism, and French-English relations. Contributors situate contemporary leg- islation and policy within historical and political context. While some debunk myths about the accommodation of diversity, others examine case studies of individuals and policies. Together, they ad- dress key components of the evolving Canadian story: the evolu- tion of multiculturalism within constitutional law and policy; the territorial dimension of federalism, which also embraces language policy; and the role that constitutional interpretation by the courts has played to construct and enhance Canada as a self-consciously multicultural state. This wide-ranging collection illustrates that multiculturalism is woven deeply into the fabric of the Canadian constitution. It will be of interest to students and scholars in law, political science, and public policy. Stephen Tierney is Reader in Law at the University of Edinburgh. Contributors include Dyane Adam, Daniel Bourgeois and Andrew F. Johnson, Marc Chevrier, Robert J. Currie, Jameson Doig, Kather- ine Eddy, Donald Forbes, Hugh Kindred, Will Kymlicka, Ian Peach, Joan Small, and Michael Temelini.

This book will make a pioneering and important contribution to Canadian historiography and social science in the area of mental disorder and justice. – Michael Petrunik, Department of Criminology, University of Ottawa Negotiating Responsibility interrogates the socio-cultural, medical, and legal processes that shaped the meaning of criminal respon- sibility in early to mid 20th-century capital murder cases. This book complicates more generalized arguments about the historical relationship between law and psychiatry, the insanity defence, and the role of psychiatric expertise in criminal law cases. Using capital murder case files as the primary site of analysis, White examines how knowledge about criminal responsibility was produced, organized, and legitimized in and through institutional structures, politics of identity (including race, character, citizen- ship, and gender), and overlapping narratives of mind-state. In particular, she points to the more subtle, but deeply influential, ways in which common-sense thinking about crime, punishment, criminality, and human nature shaped the boundaries of expert knowledge at every stage of the judicial process. Negotiating Responsibility fills a void in Western socio-legal history scholarship and provides a critical point of reference from which to evaluate current criminal law practices and law reform initia- tives in Canada. It will be of interest to academics and students in the critical fields of law and society, history, criminology, and cultural studies.

LAW AND SOCIETY SERIES Domestic Reforms Political Visions and Family Regulation in British Columbia, 1862–1940 Chris Clarkson This book tells a complicated story of family and welfare law reform within the context of British Columbia’s transformation from a British colonial enclave to a white settler Canadian province. – Dorothy E. Chunn, professor of sociology and co-director, Feminist Institute for Studies on Law and Society, Simon Fraser University Domestic Reforms examines the evolution of British Columbia’s family and welfare law reform against the backdrop of the province’s transformation from a colonial enclave to a white settler province. Chris Clarkson ex- amines three waves of property, inheritance, and maintenance law reform, arguing that each was related to a broader political vision intended to precipitate vast social and eco- nomic effects. He analyzes the impact of the legislation, with emphasis on the ambitions of regulated populations, the influence of the judiciary, and the social and fiscal concerns of generations of legislators and bureaucrats.

Beaman Defining Harm offers a genealogy of religious freedom in a social climate of risk and fear. It is also the story of Bethany Hughes, a member of the Jehovah’s Witness, and her legal battle to define the parameters of her medical treatment. Hughes refused to accept blood transfusions prescribed by physicians as part of her treat- ment for cancer. The B.H. case, as it was known in the courts, reflects a particular moment in the socio-legal treatment of religious freedom, and it reveals the specific intersection of religious, medical, legal, and other discourses in the governance of the religious citizen. Draw- ing from literature on risk society, governance, feminist legal theo- ry, and religious rights, Defining Harm demonstrates how Bethany Hughes was denied her right to refuse treatment on the basis of her religious conviction as a Jehovah’s Witness or as a mature minor. A powerful examination of the governance of a religious citizen and of the limits of religious freedom, Defining Harm will appeal to scholars and students in law and the social sciences, as well as to activists, policy-makers, and general readers interested in the relationships among religion, law, and government. Lori G. Beaman is the Canada Research Chair in the Contex- tualization of Religion in a Diverse Canada at the University of Ottawa. LAW AND SOCIETY SERIES Defining Rights and Wrongs Bureaucracy, Human Rights, and Public Accountability Rosanna L. Langer Human rights agencies have been the subject of intense scrutiny, and sometimes criticism, over the past decade. There have been numerous studies, reports, and commissions across the country, but none of them ask the questions that this book asks about how the perceptions and values of the participants in the process shape the outcomes. This is important work that will add new information to the discourse around human rights reform and may lead it in new directions. – Tom Patch, Associate Vice President, Equity, University of British Columbia Rosanna L. Langer is an assistant professor in the Law and Justice Department at Lauren- tian University. Defining Rights and Wrongs investigates the day-to-day practices of low-level officials and intermediaries as they manage domestic human rights complaints. It documents how agency staff struggle to manage a huge body of claims within a system of restrictive rules but expansive definitions of discrimination. It also examines how independent human rights lawyers and advocacy organizations challenge human rights commissions and seek to radi- cally reform the existing commission/tribunal structure.

Roy Patricia E. Roy examines the climax of antipa- thy to Asians in Canada: the removal of all Japanese Canadians from the BC coast in 1942. Their free return was not allowed until 1949. Yet the war also brought increased respect for Chinese Canadians: they were enfranchised in 1947, and the federal govern- ment softened its ban on Chinese immigra- tion. The Triumph of Citizenship explains why Can- ada ignored the rights of Japanese Canadians and placed strict limits on Chinese immigra- tion.

It describes the political, economic, and social circumstances that precipitated emigration from Hiroshima prefecture to Canada between 1891 and 1941, and it examines the lives and experiences of those who settled in western Canada. Starting with the history of the feudal fiefs of Aki and Bingo that were merged into Hiroshima prefecture, Ayukawa explains the im- migrants’ reasons for migration. Interviews with three generations of community members in Canada, as well as with those who never emigrated, supplement research on immigrant labour, the central role of women, and the challenges Canadian-born children faced as they navigated life between two cultures. Hiroshima Immigrants in Canada, 1891-1941 draws on both Japanese- and English-language sources. The author herself is a second-generation member of the community she is writing about. Scholars of Japanese Canadian history and culture, BC history, and diaspora and migration studies will find it informative; general readers will be interested in the cultures in question.

The book looks at this injustice by examining, in comparative context, citizen activism in defence of democracy on behalf of citizens of Japanese ancestry. Voices Raised in Protest examines the removal and deportation of persons of Japanese ancestry during the Second World War by highlighting how its meaning and impact diverged in Canada and the United States. Stephanie Bangarth begins with a comparative survey of removal and related policies, then analyzes the efforts and discourse of advocates and relevant court cases. Persons of Japanese ancestry were also active in their own defence: their critiques of the removal and deportation policies symbolized a growing interest in rights, which would provide a foundation for rights activism in subsequent years. Voices Raised in Protest is timely in light of today’s debates over ethnic and racial profiling, treatment of “enemy combatants,” and tensions between civil liberty and security imperatives. It will ap- peal to scholars and students in history, law, politics, and Asian Canadian/American studies, as well as to activists and general readers.

Set against a backdrop of war and revolution, Healing Henan brings sixty years of missionary nursing out of the shadows by examining how Canadian nurses shaped the landscape of health care in the province of Henan and how China, in turn, influenced the nature of missionary nursing. From the time Presbyterian missionaries arrived in China in 1888 until the abrupt closure of the North China Mission in 1947, Canadian nurses were a ubiquitous presence in Henan. As China underwent a tumultuous transition from a dynastic kingdom to an independent republic, Canadian nurses advanced a version of hospital-based nursing education and practice that rivaled modern nursing care in Canada. Healing Henan offers a fresh perspective on China missions and the global expansion of professional nursing. As the first comprehen- sive study of missionary nursing in China, it will be of particular interest to nurses and missionaries, and to historians of Canada, China, nursing, medicine, women’s work, and missions.

The story of the Chinese Communist movement’s wartime expansion is well known, yet the nature of this expansion remains disputed. In Village China at War, Dagfinn Gatu focuses on how the Party combined two objectives to build mass resistance to the Japanese: socio-economic and political restructuring in favour of the poor, and the forging of a rural, grassroots front composed of all social strata. Dagfinn stresses how party ambitions were constrained by the Japanese army, economic burdens, peasant attitudes, and a shortage of trained cadres. The movement expanded too rapidly for the Party to exert more than a weak or mediated vanguard function, but it had a broad, if uneven, redistributive impact on power resources, raising the prospect of future revolution. Village China at War examines a set of interrelated issues pertaining to Communist base areas in North China that will appeal to histo- rians, political scientists, and general readers interested in modern China, the Sino-Japanese War, and the Second World War. Dagfinn Gatu works at Japan Women’s University in Tokyo. This book is of great importance in helping to reshape our conceptions of China as a spatial entity . . . The Chinese State at the Borders makes a highly significant contribution to the surprisingly scanty literature on China’s borders, and extends its reach beyond that through comparative examples. – Naomi Standen, co-editor of Frontiers in Question: Eurasian Borderlands, 700-1700 The People’s Republic of China claims 22,000 kilometres of land borders and 18,000 kilo- metres of coastline. How did this vast country come into being? The state credo describes an ancient process of cultural expansion, where border peoples gratefully accepted Chinese high culture. But why has the “centre” so of- ten been compelled to maintain control over its border regions? The essays in this volume look at this relationship over a long time span, questioning whether the process of expansion was a benevolent civilizing mission.

Smith shows how a complex blend of fear and freedom produced an environment in which Chinese women writers could articulate dissatisfaction with the overtly patriarchal and imperialist nature of the Japanese cultural agenda while working in close association with colonial institutions. The first book in English on women’s history in twentieth-century Manchuria, Resisting Manchukuo adds to a growing literature that challenges traditional understandings of Japanese colonialism.

Norman Smith paints a complex and highly nuanced picture of a colonial society, which, for decades, has only been examined in starkly nationalist categories. One of the very first social histories of the Japanese occupation in the cities, Resisting Manchukuo is an artful blend of literary analysis and fascinating social history. – Rana Mitter, author, A Bitter Revolution Dealing with unexplored topics that have been virtually ignored until now, Norman Smith illuminates new worlds for us. He casts light on what life was like for the Chinese living under Japanese rule and, surprisingly, the degree to which literary figures were able to thwart Japanese censorship. – Ronald Suleski, author, Civil Government in Warlord China Norman Smith reveals the literary world of Japanese-occupied Manchuria (Manchukuo, 1932-45) and examines the A major contribution to the study of teachers’ schools in Republican China. Xiaoping Cong’s work helps us understand why China’s rural society and lasting feudal structure were transformed and dismantled during the Republican period and also what led to the success of the Chinese Communist Party in 1949. – George Wei, author, Sino-American Economic Relations, 1944-49 Teachers’ Schools and the Making of the Mod- ern Chinese Nation-State is an innovative account of educational and social trans- formations in politically tumultuous early twentieth-century China. It focuses on the unique nature of Chinese teachers’ schools, which bridged Chinese and Western ide- als, and the critical role that these schools played in the changes sweeping Chinese society. It also documents their role in the empowerment of women and the produc- tion of grassroots forces leading to the Communist Revolution. Teachers’ Schools and the Making of the Modern Chinese Nation-State will attract attention from scholars in Asian studies, Chinese history, educational history, and comparative studies; it will also appeal to graduate and undergraduate students in these fields.

Douglas Francis Postwar Canada is more complex than stereotypes of Cold War conformity and sixties rebellion suggest. Creating Postwar Canada showcases new research that explores how Canadian communities were imagined and reimagined from the end of the Second World War to the Oil Crisis of the 1970s. Contributors to the first half of the collection consider evolving definitions of the nation, revealing parallels between national- ist awakenings in Québec, Acadian New Brunswick, and English Canada. They examine how Canada was reimagined to include both the Canadian North and landscapes structured by trade and commerce. By analyzing debates on shopping hours, professional striptease, the “provider” role of fathers, interracial adoption, sexu- ality on campus, and illegal drug use, contributors to the second half examine postwar Canada’s diverse symbols and battlegrounds. Creating Postwar Canada sheds light on an under-examined era in Canadian history; it also contributes to the historiography of nationalism, gender and the family, consumer cultures, and countercultures. It will appeal to historians, students, and readers interested in postwar Canada and the history of Canadian identity and culture.

One of the groups most determined to influence public debate and government policy on the issue was organized labour, and unionists were often relentless critics of immigrant recruitment.

Betrayed reveals the true story behind the dismissal. A divisive power struggle between two elite groups within the RCN pitted the Navy’s regular of- ficers against a small group of self-appointed spokesmen for the voluntary naval reserve. Threats of public scandal, mass insurrection, and political intimidation caused one of the worst breakdowns in Canadian civil-mili- tary relations, revealing complex aspects of military leadership.

It examines what the process reveals about the relationship between governments and Native communities, and how increasing Aboriginal assertiveness and activism have affected the issue. P.

PUBLISHED BY UBC PRESS IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE CANADIAN WAR MUSEUM An engaging read for scholars and those in the military ... It will likely be among the touchstone works in the evolving debate in the field, both challenging and challenged by other writers and historians. – Chris Madsen, author, Another Kind of Justice For many Canadians, events during the mis- sion to Somalia in the early 1990s remain a stain on our reputation as one of the world’s most respected peacekeeping nations. Grant Dawson’s analysis of political, diplomatic, and military decision making avoids a narrow focus on the shocking offences of a few Cana- dian soldiers, deftly investigating the broader context of the deployment. Dawson draws on interviews with key partici- pants and documents made available under the Access to Information Act. He shows how media pressure, government optimism about the United Nations, and the Canadian tradi- tions of multilateralism and peacekeeping all helped to determine the level, length, and tenor of the country’s operations in Somalia.

They served in various medi- cal and surgical settings, all three armed force branches, and all major theatres of war as well as in Canada, Newfoundland, the United States and South Africa. Yet, in spite of their importance, military nurses and nursing as a form of war work have long been under-examined. An Officer and a Lady examines nurses’ experiences and their contribution toward “winning the war” through the salvage of sick and injured soldiers. From feminist and social history perspectives, Cynthia Toman explores how gender, war, and medical technology intersected to create legitimate feminine spaces within the mascu- line environment of the military. She interrogates the incongrui- ties and ambivalences involved in military nurses’ work, including conflicting gendered expectations as “officers and ladies,” and the contingency of military nursing “for the duration” only. Nurses’ experiences offer alternative perspectives on persistent de- bates about the causes, politics, and strategies of war. Their stories will interest diverse audiences: students and professionals in the healthcare fields; nursing and medical historians; and scholars and readers of women’s history, military history, and Canadian history. Cynthia Toman is an assistant professor of nursing and is Associ- ate Director of the Associated Medical Services Nursing History Research Unit at the University of Ottawa.

It outlines the development of a national system of food safety and surveillance, the federal government’s early policy focus on infant feeding, and the factors leading to the establishment of a national dietary standard. Aleck Ostry shows how the medical profes- sion became actively involved in dispensing nutritional advice during the interwar years. He surveys these early developments in the context of changing food security concerns, particularly during the challenging economic times of the 1930s, when, paradoxically, the health status of the population improved dra- matically in spite of widespread hardship.

Bodega voyaged to the Northwest Coast in 1775 and 1779, where he com- manded coastal exploration, befriended Chief Maquinna, and met with George Vancouver to settle the Nootka Sound con- troversy between Spain and Britain. Bodega y Quadra’s accomplishments place him in the company of Bering, Cook, Van- couver, La Pérouse, and Malaspina. Free- man Tovell’s thorough and nuanced study presents this “gentleman officer” of Spain’s Enlightened Navy as a key participant in the history of the Northwest Coast and adopts a positive view of Bodega’s achieve- ments. As a Peruvian criollo, Bodega chal- lenged the European image that Creoles lacked the patronage connections necessary to achieve success in the Spanish Navy. Throughout his career, Bodega exhibited drive, initiative, and dogged determina- tion that forced his superiors to recognize his accomplishments. The book concludes with revelations about Bodega’s private life, including his debts, tragic illness, and death. As the most complete study of Bodega and his epoch, this book will be of interest to historians and others interested in Spanish and maritime history and exploration, BC history, and Northwest Coast First Nations history. Freeman M. Tovell is a retired diplomat and historian who lives in Victoria, British Columbia. At the Far Reaches of Empire The Life of Juan Francisco de la Bodega y Quadra Freeman M. Tovell Working Girls in the West Representations of Wage-Earning Women in Western Canada Lindsey McMaster In turn-of-the-century Canada, young women who entered the paid workforce became the focus of intense public debate. Young wage-earning women – “working girls” – embodied all that was unnerving and unnatural about modern times: the disintegration of the family, the indepen- dence of women, and the unwholesome- ness of city life. These anxieties were amplified in the West. Long after eastern Canada was considered settled and urbanized, the West continued to be represented as a “frontier” where the idea of the region as a “society in-the- making” added resonance to the idea of the working girl as social pioneer. Using an innovative interpretive approach that centres on literary representation, Lindsey McMaster examines the working-girl hero- ine of literature alongside social documents and newspaper accounts of her everyday counterparts. Working Girls in the West heightens our understanding of a figure that fired the imagination of writers and observers in her day. Taking a fresh look at the working heroines of western Canadian poetry, prose, and fic- tion, Working Girls in the West will appeal to scholars and students of Canadian history, literature, and women’s studies. Lindsey McMaster earned a PhD in Eng- lish from the University of British Colum- bia. Her research focuses on early Canadian women writers.

Cheu In the 1970s, the women’s movement made wife battering a political issue. Women across Canada organized transition houses and safe homes to provide a sanctuary for women and children who were fleeing violent families. Transition houses were more than emergency shelters: they were hubs of a movement to change attitudes about domestic violence and to lobby for legislation and policy to protect women. No Place to Go centres on the women’s shelter movement in small cities and rural communities across Canada. Based on local histories of women’s activism in Thunder Bay, Kenora, Nelson, and Moncton, it includes Aboriginal women’s activism in northwestern Ontario, and examines the political and cultural connections between family violence and colonization. Nancy Janovicek makes the case for using local histories as a foundation to write the history of the contemporary women’s movement. No Place to Go is the first history of the battered women’s shelter movement in Canada. It will appeal to readers interested in women’s history, women’s studies, and public policy.

Cheu is sensitive to the films and literature he treats. He posits an original framework for thinking about women’s writing and for situating feminist debates on gender identity and writing within theories of transnational culture and politics. – Janine Marchessault, Canada Research Chair in Art and Digital Media, York University Cinematic Howling presents a refreshingly un- orthodox framework for feminist film studies. Instead of criticizing mainstream movies from feminist perspectives, Hoi Cheu focuses on women’s filmmaking itself. Integrating systems theory and feminist aesthetics in his close readings of films and screenplays by women, he considers how women engage the process of storytelling in cinema. The impor- tance of these films, he argues, is not merely that they reflect women’s perceptions, but that they have the power to reframe experiences and thus to transform life.

The sex workers discuss such issues as violence and safety, health and risk, politics and policy, media influence, and public percep- tion, portraying the best and the worst facets of their working lives and expressing senti- ments refreshingly at odds with commonly held opinions.

With a great deal of difficulty. During the Great Depression and Second World War, many men were first out of work and then away from their families. After the war came, attempts were made to re-establish the traditional gender hierarchy by empha- sizing men’s modernity, allegedly superior rationality, and ability to handle risk, but the strategy had contradictory repercussions. The Manly Modern traces the history of what happened when men’s supposed modernity became one of their defining features. Through a series of case studies covering such diverse subjects as car culture, mountaineer- ing, war veterans, murder trials, and a bridge Sexing the Teacher School Sex Scandals and Queer Pedagogies Sheila L. Cavanagh collapse, Christopher Dummitt argues that the very idea of what it meant to be modern was gendered. A strong current of anti-modernist sentiment bubbled just beneath the surface of postwar masculinity, creating rumblings about the state of modern manhood that, ironically, mirrored the tensions that burst forth in 1960s gender radicalism.

Analyzing this evolution reveals that child protection policy and practice has reflected the priorities of politicians and public servants in power. With few exceptions, efforts to establish effective programs have focused on structural arrangements, staffing responsibilities, and rules to regulate the practice of child welfare workers. Contributors to this book conclude that these attempts have been unsuccessful thus far because they have failed to address the impact of poverty on clients. The need to People, Politics, and Child Welfare in British Columbia Edited by Leslie T.

In Owls of the United States and Canada he showcases both of these talents and reveals a wealth of knowledge about owl biology. Anyone interested in these fascinat- ing birds will treasure this book for years to come. – Brian E. Small, Birding Magazine There is no group of birds more mysterious and fascinating than owls. They have become the stuff of lore and legend – from the Roman myth that an owl foot can reveal secrets to the First Na- tions belief that an owl feather could give a newborn better night vision. But the truth about owls is much more exciting. In this gorgeous book, celebrated natural history writer and wildlife photographer Wayne Lynch reveals the secrets of these elusive species with stunning photographs, personal anecdotes, and accessible science. The photos alone are masterpieces. Unlike most published owl photos, the majority of these were taken in the wild – a product of the author-photographer’s incredible knowledge and patience. Lynch complements the photos with facts about anatomy, habi- tat, diet, and family life. For each of nineteen species inhabiting Canada and the United States, he provides a range map and a brief discussion of its distribution, population size, and status. Lynch debunks myths about owls’ “supernatural” powers of sight and hearing, discusses courtship rituals, and offers personal tips for finding them in the wild. From the great horned to the tiny elf owl, this amazing volume captures the beauty and mystery of these charismatic birds of prey. The Inner Bird Anatomy and Evolution Gary W. Kaiser The Inner Bird introduces readers to the avian skeleton, then moves beyond anatomy to discuss the relationships between birds and dinosaurs and other early ancestors. Gary Kaiser examines the challenges scientists face in understanding avian evolution – even re- cent advances in biomolecular genetics have failed to provide a clear evolutionary story. Using examples from recently discovered fos- sils of birds and near-birds, Kaiser describes an avian history based on the gradual aban- donment of dinosaur-like characteristics and the related acquisition of avian characteris- tics, such as sophisticated flight techniques and the production of large eggs. The Inner Bird offers a fresh perspective on avian anatomy and evolution. It will help anyone interested in birds to bridge the gap between long-dead fossils and the challenges faced by living species. Gary W.

Con- sidered one of BC’s most famous survey- ors, Swannell’s journals and outstanding photographs of central BC show the changes beginning to occur in this largely wilderness region. Swannell photographed First Peoples, settlers, various methods of transportation, and the daily life of a surveying crew. He took about 1500 photographs from 1920 to 1928, and the author has selected the best for this book; many are previously unpublished and have historical significance. In particular, Swannell’s photographs of the landscape of the Coast Mountains are especially relevant in demonstrating climate change in British Columbia.

The social and economic burden of mental illness is considerable and, within the Western world, such problems appear to have increased in recent years.
