    The Golden Age of Liberalism A Portrait of Roméo LeBlanc Naomi E. S. Griffiths Canada, Jean Chrétien

      Description

      This book explores the life and times of Roméo LeBlanc, one of Canada's most popular and successful politicians and statesmen. Probably best known as the long-standing fisheries minister in Pierre Trudeau's cabinet from 1974 to 1982, LeBlanc's career spanned the golden era of Liberalism in Canada. He capped his career during the nineties as the country's twenty-fifth governor general.

      Historian Naomi E. S. Griffiths spent many years reading through LeBlanc's papers and interviewing many of his colleagues to explore the worlds he moved in -- Paris in the late forties and early fifties, world capitals during his time as a journalist, and then Ottawa. As a writer with an in-depth knowledge of the Acadian communities of the Maritimes, she knows his roots very well. Her biography covers his early years in New Brunswick where he was born into rural poverty, his years as a journalist in Ottawa, his heyday as a minister in Trudeau's cabinet, and his years at Rideau Hall. Along the way, Ms. Griffiths reveals many intriguing insights about her subject's contemporaries, including Lester Pearson, Pierre Trudeau, and Jean Chrétien. She also discusses the importance of LeBlanc's Acadian heritage in animating all that he did.

      This engrossing biography illuinates the life of one of Canada's most beloved politicians and statesmen and, with it, a fascinating era in our history.

      Bio
      NAOMI E. S. GRIFFITHS is recognized for her pioneering work in the fields of Acadian and women's history. She was a professor in the department of history at Carleton for many years, and she is the author or co-author of nine books, including The Context of Acadian History. She lives in Ottawa, Ontario.

      "...long overdue...a seamless account of a complicated man. It's an important book filled with history well worth reliving."
      "Through LeBlanc's experiences and observations, Griffiths describes the inner workings of the Liberal governments of Lester Pearson, Pierre Trudeau and Jean Chrétien. She pays particular attention to the importance of LeBlanc's Acadian heritage in animating all that he did.


      Her biography illuminates the life of one of Canada's most beloved politicians and statesmen and, with it, a fascinating era in our history."
      "The Golden Age of Liberalism succeeds in two important particulars. It reveals the deep and abiding love that LeBlanc, a francophone, felt for Canada in an age when Quebec nationalism, even separatism, was fashionable among the chattering classes. It also shows his lifelong commitment to his Acadian people, whom he cherished as an identifiable and important, if often overlooked, minority in Canada."
      "The title of the book attracts your eye, but the contents will feed your curiosity...The author, Canada's leading authority on the Acadian experience, reconstructs LeBlanc's life with gentle affection and careful attention to the little things that mattered to her subject."

    Fearmonger Stephen Harper's Tough-on-Crime Agenda Paula Mallea Canada
    9781552778982 Paperback POLITICAL SCIENCE / World Publication Date:October 11, 2011
    $24.95 CAD 153 x 229 x 13 mm | 360 gr | 232 pages Carton Quantity:60 Canadian Rights: Y Lorimer

      Description

      According to Statistics Canada, all crime rates -- including violent crime -- have been trending downward over the last twenty years. Yet the Harper government continues to insist Canadians are in the midst of a crime epidemic. This is their rationale for spending billions on new prisons, and for legislation that will put thousands more behind bars and increase the likelihood that young Canadians will have criminal records.

      In this book, author Paula Mallea lays out the evidence that contradicts the government's claims. "Tough on Crime is actually lazy on crime," says Mallea. "It is certainly tough on taxpayers. A better approach is to be smart on crime." The Harper approach has been widely used in the United States, where governments are now turning away from measures which cost billions while producing few or no measurable benefits.

      Fearmonger is a compelling critique of the financial as well as the human costs of the Harper tough-on-crime agenda.

      Bio
      PAULA MALLEA practised criminal law for fifteen years in Toronto, Kingston, and Manitoba, mainly as defence counsel. She is a research associate with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. She is also the author of Aboriginal Law: Apartheid in Canada. She currently resides in Gore Bay, on Manitoulin Island.

      "Mallea's recently published book portrays the Harper government as being obsessed with crime...She predicts the stubborn attitude will take a huge toll on the country."
      "Fearmonger should be a must-read for all of us."
      "Despite the statistics indicating that crime rates, including violent crime, have been declining over the last twenty years, Stephen Harper and his government insists Canada needs to get "tough on crime." Mallea explains how this is really "tough on taxpayers" who will pay for the incarceration of ever-greater numbers of people."
      "...an outstanding overview of recently passed and proposed crime legislation.

      Written in an accessible manner while reflecting the author's own extensive background in criminal law, this analysis picks apart each of the Conservative crime agenda's multi-pronged proposals based on an objective, reality-based approach that can hardly be accused of partisanship. Rather, Mallea cobbles together research, expert voices and common sense refutations that illustrate how an indefinite increase in punishment for punishment's sake will in fact make society less safe and cost untold billions in the process."
      "...a comprehensive attack on the Conservative government's crime agenda dating back to 2006, including many proposals that appear destined to become law in 2012...While centred on recent events, the relevance of Mallea's critique extends well into the future."

      Description

      Family violence is hard for most people to understand. The fact that we are more likely to be killed or assaulted by family members than anyone else seems incredible. Yet for many Canadians the family is a dangerous place, far from the haven of love and security that we would like to believe.

      In this book, sociologists Julianne Momirov and Ann Duffy explore the many forms that violence can take, from physical abuse to emotional deprivation. The victims, the theories, and the factors increasing risk are all clearly presented. Policies and programs which would address this issue -- from personal intervention to institutional reforms -- are also outlined.

      This new edition incorporates up-to-date statistical information on the prevalence of family violence. It reports on recent initiatives to find more successful ways to respond to the needs of victims and to rehabilitate the perpetrators.

      This is the definitive Canadian book for anyone wanting to learn more about this disturbing phenomenon.

      Bio
      JULIANNE MOMIROV has taught courses in sociology at Brock University and at University College of the Cariboo. She currently works in the legal field, where she helps people navigate the issues that arise during the breakdown of family relationships. She lives in Niagara Falls.

      In From Bombs to Books Edmonds School principal, David Starr, shares the deeply moving stories of his students, their parents and the staff at Edmonds who support them. He describes the upheaval many of these families have undergone and how they managed to flee some of the most dangerous lands and people on earth.


      He paints portraits of students who are often troubled by what they have experienced but who are surprisingly happy, normal children who have put their family's grief and trauma behind them. He also describes teachers and social workers who have embraced these families and dedicated themselves to making a difference in their lives.


      I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank Principal David Starr for writing his first book about the challenges faced by refugee students, their parents and teachers in an inner city school.
      "..a very powerful book about courage, survival and belonging."
      "This is the book to read to remind ourselves why we become teachers. . . The true life stories in From Bombs to Books are a reminder of the important work we all do when faced with the life challenges of children as they walk through the doors each day."

    The Canadian Fuhrer The Life of Adrien Arcand Jean-Francois Nadeau Canada

      Description

      The Canadian Fuhrer is the story the emergence of prominent fascist leader Adrien Arcand and a dark chapter in Canada's past.

      During the 1930s, when the misery of hunger, unemployment and the threat of war shadowed life for many, Canadians were drawn to a wide range of new political ideas. Communism, socialism, and the social credit movement all attracted supporters. Fascist ideas and Europe's fascist leaders also appealed to some. Even Canadian Prime Minister Mackenzie King reacted positively to Adolf Hitler when he first met him. Out of these circumstances emerged a Canadian fascist party led by a Montreal journalist, Adrien Arcand who became a significant part of the political scene through most of the 1930s.

      Arcand adopted Nazi symbols and eagerly voiced anti-Semitic views. He organized large successful rallies of his right-wing supporters under the sign of the swastika and enjoyed the support of a substantial and committed group of Canadians. Once Canada declared war on Germany and Italy, however, Arcand was imprisoned for his political views. Yet after the war he resumed his activities as leader of the far-right National Unity Party, and forged ties to Quebec's provincial government of Maurice Duplessis during the 1950s and 1960s. Although Canadian historians have paid little attention to Arcand, he played an important role in the country's political life for many years.

      This fascinating biography sheds light on a man and an era that have been hidden in the shadows for too long.

      "In exploring the forgotten life of Adrien Arcand, Jean-Francois Nadeau has written the first real historical work on Canada's best-known fascist." Le Devoir

      Reviews
      "...a very thorough, authoritative biography with a title that not only projects a strong, powerful image, but conveys the author's willingness to call a spade a spade.
      As a former academic historian, Nadeau brings an impressive array of insight and talent to the task of unravelling the life of Canada's best know fascist leader...It will quickly be recognized as the standard work on a sordid aspect of Quebec's 20th-century history."
      "His book is both more and sometimes less than a biography: Arcand is the focus, but numerous other actors appear and additional nationalist groups are analyzed... It is not that Nadeau lacks a point of view: his dislike of the leading and supporting actors in his fascinating story is pronounced. But he is cool and detached and his research is thorough and critical. The translation is smooth and readable... Jean-François Nadeau's study of Adrien Arcand and his times is an engrossing read. A talented historian, Nadeau has put this despicable figure into a rich context of many marginal movements..."
      "Nadeau has penetrated into dark recesses of Quebec history, areas, which as he notes, have been largely ignored."
      "Jean-François Nadeau gives a highly readable portrait of a malevolent and shadowy figure, while also providing a well-informed outline of the right-wing Catholic movements that once flourished in Quebec...The breadth of Nadeau's research is impressive...This book is of great worth to professional historians, but it will also appeal to a broad readership."
      "Nadeaus writing is thorough, and the story he tells is chilling... one is reminded of the fragility of our multicultural society"

      Description

      During 2008-2009, Israel lobby organizations made concerted efforts to block a planned conference on statehood for Israel and Palestine at Toronto's York University. This book is a report of an independent investigation by author Jon Thompson for the Canadian Association of University Teachers, an organization that has been active in the defence of free speech and academic freedoms which have been challenged on Canadian campuses.

      Controversy began at York soon after the Israel-Palestine conference was advertised, and intensified over the following months. The event was repeatedly denounced, and university administrators were deluged by irate e-mails and phone calls. York, as the host university, was warned of boycotts and the cessation of donations and was denounced in fullpage newspaper ads. When York and its co-sponsors stood their ground, the Israel lobby persuaded the Harper government to contact SSHRC, an academic funding agency also involved with the event. In response, SSHRC made an unprecedented intervention. The Canadian Association of University Teachers then made a public issue of the government's interference and, in the end, the conference was held as planned.

      This book establishes the facts of the case, provides a context for understanding it, and explores the meaning of academic freedom in Canada. Author Jon Thompson proposes measures which universities and university faculty members can take to better safeguard their ability to discuss and debate ideas which some may wish to silence.

      Bio
      JON THOMPSON is a professor emeritus in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of New Brunswick. He is a former chair of the department and a former president of the faculty union at UNB.

Milner Award for contributions to academic freedom in 1993. He chaired the independent committee of inquiry commissioned by CAUT into the dispute involving Dr. Nancy Olivieri, the University of Toronto, the Hospital for Sick Children and Apotex Inc.

      "The recommendations of Thompsons CAUT Inquiry are rightly directed largely at getting faculty associations to organize and build alliances to resist the precedent-setting political interference of the Harper government and the dangerous narrowing of the frame of academic freedom supported in the Iacobucci report. This book is an essential tool in those mobilizing efforts and members should be getting our own associations to purchase and distribute this book, encourage discussions on its contents, and support measures to defend academic freedom."

    Heroes of the Acadian Resistance The Story of Joseph Beausoleil Broussard and Pierre II Surette 1702-1765 Dianne Marshall Canada

      Description

      Heroes of the Acadian Resistance tells the unique and little-known story of the young men who led an Acadian resistance in 18th century Nova Scotia. They fought valiantly in a guerilla campaign against the British to save their homes and families from destruction and deportation.

      Their battle was against a form of ethnic cleansing that saw British soldiers burn every remnant of the Acadian community -- homes, barns and churches. All Acadians who the soldiers were able to round up were forcibly deported.

      The French government used missionary priests as government agents to generate resistance amongst Mi'kmaq and Acadian Catholics in an attempt to regain Nova Scotia from British domination. Their efforts were welcomed by some Acadians who had their own reasons for resisting British rule. The guerilla campaign which ensued was well underway before the deportation, and continued after the majority of Acadians had been captured and forcibly exiled.

      Heroes of the Acadian Resistance tells the story of that resistance and two young Acadians who proved to be leaders in these battles -- Joseph Beausoleil Broussard and Pierre II Surette. Beausoleil, who like many fellow Acadians ended up in Louisiana, is remembered in the Cajun community as a great Acadian hero. Surette lived out his days in Yarmouth County in Nova Scotia, an area which is still home to many of Surette's descendants.

      This book offers a fresh perspective on the tragic events of the Acadian expulsion from 18th century Nova Scotia.

      "...in her new book, Halifax author Dianne Marshall explores a less-reported chapter of this 18th century British campaign against Nova Scotia's early French settlers....chronicles the struggles, strategies and significance of a small but persistent opposition movement battling a British empire."
      "The 207-page book that tells the most complete version of the story (of the Acadian Expulsion) so far is Heroes of the Acadian Resistance by Dianne Marshall...The author writes well... It's to be hoped she will treat another historical subject in the same calm, clear way."
      "Marshall's well-assembled, clearly written account takes us through the early resistance, the first fall of Louisbourg, the disastrous French effort to retake it, the final Bristish push to quash an Acadian insurgency and the expulsion itself. This straightforward narrative style comes at a cost: I, for one, wanted Marshall to pause and ruminate on the morality of the insurgents and pass judgement in the way they often forced hapless Acadians to support them."


      "...her description of the deportation itself is bracing and affecting, a sobering reminder that this was not an orderly queuing up to board ships...the execution was chaotic, harsh and often fatal."
