8 AGNEW, Vijay Resisting Discrimination : Women from Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean and the Women's Movement in Canada
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1996, ISBN:0802006744 
AGNEW, Vijay. Resisting Discrimination : Women from Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean and the Women's Movement in Canada. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (1996). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-x,(2),[3]-292,(2). 8vo, greycloth with metallic purple lettering to front and spine. "In her introduct ion to 'Resisting Discrimination', Vijay Agnew quotes Keibo Oiwa: 'We rarely encounter accounts of what the persecuted themselves felt, thought, wished to do, and actually did or failed to do; what meanings they attached to their thoughts and actions.' As Agnew observes, there is little Canadian feminist literature, from a minority perspective, on racism in feminist practice. 'Resisting Discrimination' is ground-breaking book. Focusing on the experiences of women from Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean, the volume exploresthe realities of race, class, and gender discrimination in twentieth-centu ry Canada. Agnew uses an integrated approach, adopting methodologies from political science, hiostory, sociology, and women's studies to investigate history and politics of Asian and black women throughout this century and the exclusion of these women from theory and practice of mainstream feminism.She also looks at the relationship between the state and community-based o rganizations of immigrant women, and the struggles of these women to provide social services to non-English-speaking working-class women through theircommunity-based organizations. Agnew's views are critical of white feminis t theories and practices. Her goal is to sensitize the reader to another perspective and to empower minority women by making them the subject of theirown recent history and politics. She seeks to open up the possibility of f uller cooperation among feminists across lines of race and class, and to suggest new lines of development for feminist theories and methodologies." - from the introductory blurb. Contents: 1. Introduction; 2. The Experience of Race and Gender Discrimination; 3. Race, Class, and Feminist Theory; 4. Race, Class, and Feminist Practice; 5. The Politics of Discourse; 6. Systemic Racism; 7. Women's Community Organizations; 8. Immigrant Women and the State; 9. Immigrant Women and Wife Abuse; 10. Conclusion. Very good. 25.00

The Toronto-born author's twenty-sixth novel. "At its center is Mattie Sylvester. Fiery, headstrong, and outrageous, Mat tie is the elderly widow of one of America's foremost artists, Gideon Sylvester. Living now in a rabling house on an island off the Atlantic coast, Mattie spends hours each day gazing out to sea, recalling a turbulent past whose memory still makes her tremble with rage. Mattie's routine begins to change, however, with the arrival of the deceptively plain and restraited Sarah Kidd, whome Mattie has hired as a personal secretary. An unlikely bond forms between the two women as, night after night, Mattie takes Sarah into her confidence, narrating episodes from her unusual past -- her precocious childhood and early independence in New York, her circle of artist friends in the 1920s, her ruthlessly charming husband, their sons... and finally, Mattie reveals to Sarah the shocking truth about the famous Gideon Sylvester." - from the dust jacket.

20 ARMSTRONG, Tammy Scare in the Crow.
Goose Lane, Fredericton, N.B., 2010, ISBN:9780864926272 
ARMSTRONG, Tammy. The Scare in the Crow. (Fredericton, N.B.) : Goose Lane, (2010). First Printing. Pp [1]-110,(2). 8vo, illustrated pale green card covers. A book of poetry. "The Scare in the Crow races across the back roads like a muscle car making a beer run. Then it pauses, in haunting contemplation of a walk through the woods. Armstrong's poems inhabit the fantasia of this world - in the peculiarities of taxidermy, crowds watching a house wash away in a spring flood, old tombstones cast over a riverbank, or rumours of a sighting of the extinct eastern panther. Gothic shadows of dead friends and strangers inhabit the lost cause of failing farms and industries, eroding communities, children dispersed, the names of distant cousins slippingthrough loose fingers. With blistering wit, Armstrong invites us to laugh at the zaniness of life. From moments of melancholy emerges an unflinching gaze at people who cling to life and livelihood the only way they know how.And always she senses the pulse of the natural world - beautiful, transfor mative, and populated with the perceptions of animal minds." - from the back cover. Tammy Armstrong grew up in the border town of St. Stephen, New Brunswick, and now lives in Fredericton. Very good. 10.00
