    Title: (Re)Generations
    Sub-title: The Poetry of Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm
    Series: Laurier Poetry
    By (author): Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm Edited by: Dallas Hunt
    ISBN10-13: 1771124717 : 9781771124713
    (Re)Generations contains selected poetry by Anishinaabe writer Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm that deals with a range of issues: from violence against Indigenous women and lands to Indigenous erotica and the joyous intimate encounters between bodies. Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm's influence on the field of Indigenous literature cannot be understated. Her creative work is formative, and she is responsible for the release of other influential works in the field of Indigenous literary studies through her publishing house, Kegedonce Press. Akiwenzie-Damm is proof positive that if Indigenous peoples are going to resist the violent processes of ongoing colonialism, then they're going to have to do it together. Akiwenzie-Damms's afterword speaks to the relations and obligations Indigenous peoples have to one another and their other-than-human kin, as she reflects on the resilient work that Indigenous creative work has done and continues to do in spite of colonial violence. Her afterword stakes a claim for the necessity of poetry in the face of ongoing colonialism, not only in the present but in the future and for the generations to come. The introduction by Dallas Hunt locates Akiwenzie-Damm within the field of Indigenous literature and meditates on her influence on the field of Indigenous erotica. Akiwenzie-Damm writes in service of Indigenous love, intimacy, and joy, and speaks with an unwavering voice, one that, to paraphrase Akiwenzie-Damm herself, "shakes the earth."

    Title: “His Dominion” and the “Yellow Peril”
    Sub-title: Protestant Missions to Chinese Immigrants in Canada, 1859-1967
    Series: Editions SR
    By (author): Jiwu Wang
    ISBN10-13: 0889204853 : 9780889204850
    A history of Chinese immigrants encounter with Canadian Protestant missionaries, "His Dominion" and the "Yellow Peril": Protestant Missions to Chinese Immigrants in Canada, 1859-1967 , analyzes the evangelizing activities of missionaries and the role of religion in helping Chinese immigrants affirm their ethnic identity in a climate of cultural conflict. Jiwu Wang argues that, by working toward a vision of Canada that espoused Anglo-Saxon Protestant values, missionaries inevitably reinforced popular cultural stereotypes about the Chinese and widened the gap between Chinese and Canadian communities. Those immigrants who did embrace the Christian faith felt isolated from their community and their old way of life, but they were still not accepted by mainstream society. Although the missionaries' goal was to assimilate the Chinese into Anglo-Saxon Protestant culture, it was Chinese religion and cultural values that helped the immigrants maintain their identity and served to protect them from the intrusion of the Protestant missions. Wang documents the methods used by the missionaries and the responses from the Chinese community, noting the shift in approach that took place in the 1920s, when the clergy began to preach respect for Chinese ways and sought to welcome them into Protestant-Canadian life. Although in the early days of the missions, Chinese Canadians rejected the evangelizing to take what education they could from the missionaries, as time went on and prejudice lessened, they embraced the Christian faith as a way to gain acceptance as Canadians.

    Title: “I Want to Join Your Club”
    Sub-title: Letters from Rural Children, 1900-1920
    Series: Life Writing
    Edited by: Norah L. Lewis
    ISBN10-13: 0889202605 : 9780889202603
    "I am a girl, 13 years old, and a proper broncho buster. I can cook and do housework, but I just love to ride." In letters written to the children's pages of newspapers, we hear the clear and authentic voices of real children who lived in rural Canada and Newfoundland between 1900 and 1920. Children tell us about their families, their schools, jobs and communities and the suffering caused by the terrible costs of World War I. We read of shared common experiences of isolation, hard work, few amenities, limited educational opportunities, restricted social life and heavy responsibilities, but also of satisfaction over skills mastered and work performed. Though often hard, children's lives reflected a hopeful and expanding future, and their letters recount their skills and determination as well as family lore and community histories. Children both make and participate in history, but until recently their role has been largely ignored. In "I Want to Join Your Club," Lewis provides direct evidence that children's lives, like adults', have both continuity and change and form part of the warp and woof of the social fabric.

    ``This book would be a good addition to any school library, both as entertaining reading and historical reference, and as a reminder that the past was not so golden: `I am housekeeper, as my mother works in town eight miles away and only comes home Saturday night, as she has to walk.

    Title: "Race," Rights and the Law in the Supreme Court of Canada
    Sub-title: Historical Case Studies
    Edited by: James W. St.G. Walker
    ISBN10-13: 0889203067 : 9780889203068
    Four cases in which the legal issue was "race" -- that of a Chinese restaurant owner who was fined for employing a white woman; a black man who was refused service in a bar; a Jew who wanted to buy a cottage but was prevented by the property owners' association; and a Trinidadian of East Indian descent who was acceptable to the Canadian army but was rejected for immigration on grounds of "race" -- drawn from the period between 1914 and 1955, are intimately examined to explore the role of the Supreme Court of Canada and the law in the racialization of Canadian society. With painstaking research into contemporary attitudes and practices, Walker demonstrates that Supreme Court Justices were expressing the prevailing "common sense" about "race" in their legal decisions. He shows that injustice on the grounds of "race" has been chronic in Canadian history, and that the law itself was once instrumental in creating these circumstances. The book concludes with a controversial discussion of current directions in Canadian law and their potential impact on Canada's future as a multicultural society.

    ``This book has many strengths. Walker skilfully bridges the gap between legal history and social history in a compelling introduction which `orients' the reader to developments in scholarly work in the areas of race and race relations, social history, and legal history. Moreover, the author demonstrates an impressive grasp of the intricacies of legal procedure, tracing each case from lower courts through to Canada's Supreme Court. Walker also breathes life into each of these case studies by situating them intheir historical context....There are, however, a few questions one is left with after reading thiswork....Walker's work provides us a point from which to engage with these issues. This work, in sum, will surely cement the author's well-deserved reputation as one of the foremost thinkers on the subject of race in Canada.'' -- Barrington Walker, Atlantis
    ``...this book is a major contribution to our understanding of the interaction of race and the law in the Canadian experience. It is history told with engaging detail, in a lively and comprehensible style and embodying wise and convincing reflection. Moreover, as Walker warns us in his afterword, the story has no neat historical end. It has relevance today. The fragility of assumptions about the tolerance of ethnic difference in contemporary Canadian society, especially at street and community levels, and the difficulties the Supreme Court has had with setting the interpretative matrix of the Charter and the Constitution Act on equality issues should warn us against undue complacency and smugness in assuming that racism is dead or, if alive, can be easily and predictably suppressed by the invocation of the law.'' -- John McLaren, The Canadian Historical Review
    ``Walker presents a superb study of four cases in which the Supreme Court of Canada grappled with the meaning of race....Walker writes with several audiences in mind, and his engaging prose and careful analysis should appeal to that mythical `well-educated general reader' as well as those who read books for a living. There are even sections that Walker suggests can be skipped by those who do not need background on law and legal process, race theory, the historiography of the race or the methodology of history -- all excellent readings for introducing students to legal history.'' -- Margaret McCallum, University of New Brunswick, Acadiensis
    ``Walker chose well, as these four cases disclose a panoply of approaches to race regulation in the era prior to human rights legislation and the Charter....In short, the cases are presented as moments at which the concept of race itself was at stake.'' -- Kerry Rittich, , University of Toronto Quarterly

    Title: "Without fear and with a manly heart"
    Sub-title: The Great War Letters and Diaries of Private James Herbert Gibson
    Edited by: L. Iris Newbold, K. Bruce Newbold With: Evelyn A. Walters, Mark G. Walters
    ISBN10-13: 1771123451 : 9781771123457
    Private James Herbert (Herb) Gibson was 26 years old when he volunteered for service in the Canadian Expeditionary Force in the First World War. Born near Perth, Ontario and descended from Scottish settlers, Gibson enlisted against his father's wishes because he viewed the war as justified and felt he needed to do his part. "Without fear and with a manly heart" collects his personal letters and diaries as well as those sent to him by family and friends. They reveal his beliefs, hopes, realizations, and tragedies through an account of his contribution to the war. The letters trace Gibson's wartime service from 1916 to 1919 from his enlistment and training with the 130th (Lanark and Renfrew) Battalion to his service on the Western Front with the 75th Battalion. Gibson was wounded twice, first near Vimy during the Gas Raid of March 1917 and again more seriously during a night patrol in July 1918 which ended his war. He also had to deal with tragedy on the home front from afar. Gibson's religious beliefs significantly influenced and sustained him through his darkest hours. He felt himself a gentle man caught up "on an errand the full consequences of which we did not realize."

    Title: A Brief History of Women in Quebec
    Series: Studies in Childhood and Family in Canada
    By (author): Denyse Baillargeon Translated by: W. Donald Wilson
    ISBN10-13: 1554589509 : 9781554589500
    A Brief History of Women in Quebec examines the historical experience of women of different social classes and origins (geographic, ethnic, and racial) from the period of contact between Europeans and Aboriginals to the twenty-first century to give a nuanced and complex account of the main transformations in their lives. Themes explored include demography, such as marriage, fecundity, and immigration; women's work outside and inside the home, including motherhood; education, from elementary school to post-secondary and access to the professions; the impact of religion and government policies; and social and political activism, including feminism and struggles to attain equality with men. Early chapters deal with New France and the first part of the nineteenth century, and the remaining are devoted to the period since 1880, an era in which women's lives changed rapidly and dramatically. The book concludes that transformation in the means of production, women's social and political activism (including feminism), and Quebec nationalism are three main keys to understanding the history of Quebec women. Together, the three show that women's history, far from being an adjunct to "general history," is essential to a full understanding of the past. Originally published in French with the title Brève histoire des femmes au Québec.

    Title: A Common Written Greek Source for Mark and Thomas
    Series: Studies in Christianity and Judaism
    By (author): John Horman
    ISBN10-13: 1554582245 : 9781554582242
    This book uncovers an early collection of sayings, called N, that are ascribed to Jesus and are similar to those found in the Gospel of Thomas and in Q, a document believed to be a common source, with Mark, for Matthew and Luke. In the process, the book sheds light on the literary methods of Mark and Thomas. A literary comparison of the texts of the sayings of Jesus that appear in both Mark and Thomas shows that each adapted an earlier collection for his own purpose. Neither Mark nor Thomas consistently gives the original or earliest form of the shared sayings; hence, Horman states, each used and adapted an earlier source. Close verbal parallels between the versions in Mark and Thomas show that the source was written in Greek. Horman's conclusion is that this common source is N. This proposal is new, and has implications for life of Jesus research. Previous research on sayings attributed to Jesus has treated Thomas in one of two ways: either as an independent stream of Jesus sayings written without knowledge of the New Testament Gospels and or as a later piece of pseudo-Scripture that uses the New Testament as source. This book rejects both views.

    About The Author:
    John Horman received his Ph.D. from McMaster University in 1973 and is an independent scholar from Waterloo, ON. He has published in Novum Testamentum, and this is his first book.
    ``This is a very learned, thoughtful, meticulous work of scholarship that adds a novel alternative to the various theories on the sources and composition histories of the Gospel of Mark and the Gospel of Thomas, the latter especially. The N hypothesis will be provocative in the best sense; it will provoke debate, surely criticism, scholarly re-thinking of how to account for the composition of the Gospel of Thomas, still a front of hyper-activity in scholarship on early Christianity and its literature.'' -- Willi Braun, University of Alberta, editor of[http://www.wlupress.wlu.ca/Catalog/braun.shtml Rhetoric andReality in Early Christianities] (WLU Press, 2005) -- 201101
    ``Systematically working through the evidence, H. makes a strong case for a shared written source behind parts of Mark and Thomas. If he is correct, we have a sayings source as old as Q but with a different viewpoint. More speculative are H.'s ideas about the secondary nature of narrative (includng passion narrative) in early Christian writing and about the lack of interest in a narrative of Jesus' life until the mid-second century. The question of how and where the Gospel of Thomas continued to expand beyond the common written source is left open. The stream of Thomas research shows little sign of abating or reaching a consensus, but H. adds important data and analysis to the ongoing effort.'' -- Janet Timbie, The Catholic University of America -- Catholic Biblical Quarterly, 75, 2013, 201309
    ``Without doubt this is an innovative hypothesis, which carefully reconstructs proposed earlier forms of traditions behind shared Markan and Thomasine parallels. Readers will be grateful for the care displayed in handling both Coptic and Greek sayings, and the technical skills used to recreate the form that is suggested to underlie these parallels.'' -- Paul Foster -- Journal for the Study of the New Testament, 34(5), 2012, 201208

    Title: A Cross-Cultural Dialogue on Health Care Ethics
    Edited by: Harold Coward, Pinit Ratanakul
    ISBN10-13: 0889203253 : 9780889203259
    The ethical theories employed in health care today assume, in the main, a modern Western philosophical framework. Yet the diversity of cultural and religious assumptions regarding human nature, health and illness, life and death, and the status of the individual suggest that a cross-cultural study of health care ethics is needed. A Cross-Cultural Dialogue on Health Care Ethics provides this study. It shows that ethical questions can be resolved by examining the ethical principles present in each culture, critically assessing each value, and identifying common values found within all traditions, It encourages the development of global awareness and sensitivity to and respect for the diversity of peoples and their values and will advance understanding as well as help to foster a greater balance and a fuller truth in consideration of the human condition and what makes for health and wholeness.

    Title: A Fragile Revolution
    Sub-title: Consumers and Psychiatric Survivors Confront the Power of the Mental Health System
    By (author): Barbara Everett
    ISBN10-13: 0889203423 : 9780889203426
    Despite two centuries and three major reform movements, mental patients have remained on the outside of the mainstream of society, often living in poverty and violence. Today we are undergoing yet another period of reform and, in a historical first, ex-mental patients, now calling themselves consumers and psychiatric survivors, have been recruited in record numbers by the Ontario government to participate in the change process. A Fragile Revolution investigates the complex relationship between ex-mental patients, the government, the mental health system, and mental health professionals. It also explores how the recent changes in policy have affected that relationship, creating new tensions and new opportunities. Using qualitative interviews with prominent consumer and survivor activists, Everett examines how consumers and survivors define themselves, how they define mental illness, and how their personal experience has been translated into political action. While it is clear that consumers and survivors have affected the rhetoric of reform, they know that words do not equal action. As they struggle to develop their own separate advocacy agenda, they acknowledge that theirs is a fragile revolution, but one that is here to stay.

Her clinical focus has been the provision of psychotherapy for people suffering from complex posttraumatic stress disorder. She presently works as a consultant providing services such as clinical skills development workshops, clinical consultation and supervision, as well as program developmnet and evaluation.
    ``Everett is a professional. She has worked in institutional and agency settings and has a valid take on the nature of power and powerlessness, control and being controlled.... Quotations from consumer/survivors make the book come alive.... Everett has done a good service to professionals and clients alike.'' -- Pat Capponi -- The Journal of Addiction and Mental Health, Vol. 4 #4, July/August 2001
    ``The major sources of information for Everett's study were consumers and psychiatric survivors and those involved in providing services to this group. In-depth interviews yielded striking stories of pain and heroism as people sought help from a system with limited help to give.... Everett['s]...book, a powerful examination of the mental health system from the inside, presents a strong case for continued reform in the system.'' -- Robert B. MacIntyre -- Canadian Book Review Annual, 2000
    ``[As] a worker in the mental health field...[it] was gratifying to see my lived experience described in a cohesive way within a theoretical framework that helped me understand my professional experiences at a deeper level.... The author's ability to integrate the historical context of mental health reform with the experiences of consumers/survivors, the viewpoints of family members, and the perspectives of professionals is both exceptional and sensitively done. I highly recommend this book for anyone coming in contact with the mental health system--consumers/survivors, family members, mental health professionals, and students who are plannng to enter the field of mental health.'' -- Ru Tauro -- Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, Vol. 21 #1, Spring 2002
    ``A Fragile Revolution demonstrates quite unequivocally, a first-rate strategic thinker, competent analyst, and elegant literary stylist.... This is the book you give to non-academic Psych Industry Workers for their `own short course in what the antipsychiatry movement is all about.... A major contribution and a must-read for anyone concerned with Canadian mental health policy making and development.'' -- Byron Fraser -- In a Nutshell, Winter/Spring 2002
    ``The initial section on the history of the consumer movement is excellent.... Everett's discussions about `partnership,' about the different meaning behind the terms `consumer' and `survivor,' and about possible retaliation against consumer activists are all excellent and important. Her description of the failure of well-funded consumer groups is illuminating.... The discussion about whether consumer-survivors can participate without being co-opted is worth the price of the entire book.... I finished the book wanting to phone the author and continue the discussion, to argue with her and to agree with her.'' -- Ronald J. Diamond -- Psychiatric Services, Vol. 52, #39, September 2001

    Title: A History of Antisemitism in Canada
    By (author): Ira Robinson Ph.D
    ISBN10-13: 1771121661 : 9781771121668
    This state-of-the-art account gives readers the tools to understand why antisemitism is such a controversial subject. It acquaints readers with the ambiguities inherent in the historical relationship between Jews and Christians and shows these ambiguities in play in the unfolding relationship between Jews and Canadians of other religions and ethnicities. It examines present relationships in light of history and considers particularly the influence of antisemitism on the social, religious, and political history of the Canadian Jewish community.  A History of Antisemitism in Canada builds on the foundation of numerous studies on antisemitism in general and on antisemitism in Canada in particular, as well as on the growing body of scholarship in Canadian Jewish studies. It attempts to understand the impact of antisemitism on Canada as a whole and is the first comprehensive account of antisemitism and its effect on the Jewish community of Canada. The book will be valuable to students and scholars not only of Canadian Jewish studies and Canadian ethnic studies but of Canadian history.

    A state-of-the-art account of antisemitism in Canada. Attempts to understand the many ways in which antisemitism has impacted Canada as a whole, and examines most especially its influence on the development of Canada's Jewish community. "...timely and intriguing," -- Blacklocks Reporter
    Though it is not the first study of antisemitism in Canada, it is the most sweeping book on the topic. While he uses few archival materials, Robinson seems to have consulted every published source of any relevance. The result is a masterful, easily readable, lucid analysis of the phenomenon. This is a book not only to be read but to be savoured. -- Irving Abella -- AJS Review, 20170424
    "People interested in learning about the history of antisemitism in Canada will find Robinson's study quite enlightening. The book is well written, massively detailed, and deeply researched in mostly secondary sources." -- Leonard Dinnerstein -- American Jewish History, 20170402
