Pp (8),[1]-30,(2). 8vo, stapled illustrated greyish wrappers with red lettering to front cover. "The jackpine sonnet: an irregular sonnet of 13 or 17 (or even 14) lines. This 20th cetury form retains the pithy, expressive qualities of the traditional sonnet; but, freed from rhyme and lockstep metre, it takes on a loose and rangy vitality. Here are 12 jackpine sonnets by the manwho named the form: Milton Acorn, the Peoples' Poet. And 12 more by James Deahl, who learned the foprm from Acorn and brings his own voice to it. These 24 poems touch on love, politics, history: the spirit of nations, places, people and gods. They belong to a Canadian tradition which stretches backto Lampman and forward to a new generation of poets." -from the rear cover . Very good.

6 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.

11 ALSON, Sandra, (ed.) MacKENZIE, William Ord BLACKSTOCK, Cicely , (ed.) Another World : William Ord Mackenzie’s Sojourn in the Canadas, 1839 - 1843
2015, 
ALSON, Sandra and Cicely BLACKSTOCK, (eds.). ‘Another World’ : William Ord Mackenzie’s Sojourn in the Canadas, 1839 - 1843. Toronto : The Champlain Society, 2015. Pp (14),[xv]-lvi,(13),14-645,(9). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine, blind-stamped Champlain Society sealon front board. "William Ord Mackenzie, a recently graduated British army surgeon, describes for his friends and family back home his life in his first posting to ‘another world’: the Canadas, in the period just after the Rebellions. Opinionated, frank, sometimes arrogant and prejudiced, but alwayscurious, Mackenzie details for his readers the social and political affair s of the colonies over five years. He serves in the major cities ? Toronto,Kingston, Montreal and Quebec? and witnesses cultural events, social affai rs, sports, and theatrical performances. He is also posted to smaller garrisons ? Rivière-du-Loup, Chambly and the frontier post of Fort Ingall near the American border, and writes, sometimes despairingly, about their conditions. As a well-connected Scot, Mackenzie has entrée into the highest society of the colony, dining with lieutenant-governors, prominent businessmen, writers and politicians, but he also finds himself in the homes of ordinary Canadians in rural settings, enjoying the dances, weddings, sleighing and snowshoeing that helped to alleviate the boredom of service in a peacetime army. Politics, food, natural history, geography, the weather, local gossip and pretty girls all form part of his journals, as does a detailed account of his reading, in newspapers, journals and books. Illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings and detailed maps and sketches of cities and army posts, thislittle-known journal makes a remarkable contribution to our understanding of a young country ? Canada in embryo following a time of grave troubles. It explores a place slowly and painfully healing from the conflict and divisions brought by rebellion but preparing to take the first shaky and uncertain steps towards a truly united nation.

Pp [i]-ix,(3),[1]-126,(6). 8vo, blue card covers. “Most of the established writers on diplomacy have done their work from the viewpoint of the great power, the leaderin world affairs. This book is a look at the substantially different diplo macy practised by smaller countries whose concern is first to survive and then to thrive in a world largely ordered by the great powers. Often more objects than operators of world politics, the author seeks to describe how international relations seem to the smaller powers, and to offer some impressions on how these countries devise their foreign policies and apply their diplomacies.” - from the back cover. Born in Pictou, Nova Scotia, Arthur Andrew has served as a diplomat in Canadian missions in Bonn, Berlin, Vienna and Prague, has been ambassador to Israel and high commissioner to Cyprus, and later ambassador to Sweden, during which time he inaugurated Canada's negotiations with the People's Republic of China.

Rights formerly guaranteed by our 'welfare state' are disappearing. Social spending has been cut drastically in an attempt to combat recession, globalization and restructuring, and the deficit.The decline of the welfare state poses special risks for women. The policies, benefits, and services of the welfare state are directly linked to women's basic freedoms. The welfare state employs women to deliver services such as childcare, home-help, nursing, and social work. In turn, these services have meant that women can enter the paid labour force, provide for dependants, and leave abusive relationships. Access to political resources have helped women to form solidarities, alliances, and organizations. In Women and the Canadian Welfare State, scholars from environmental studies, law, social work, sociology, and economics explore the changing relationship between women and the welfare state. They examine the transformation of the welfare state and itsimplications for women; key issues in welfare state debates such as social rights, family and dependency, and gender-neutral programs and inequality; women's work and the state; and the role of women as agents of change.Wome n and the Canadian Welfare State explains not only how women are affected by changes in policy and programming, but how they can take an active role in shaping these changes. It bridges an important gap for scholars and students who are interested in gender, public policy, and the welfare state." Very good. 40.00

ANGUS, James T. A Respectable Ditch : A History of the Trent-Severn Waterway 1833-1920. Kingston / Montreal : McGill-Queen's University Press, (1988).First Printing. Pp. (5),[vi]-xiv,(2),3-455,(3), including plates. Illustra ted in black and white. 8vo, decorated brown cloth with black lettering to spine. "In some respects the history of the Trent-Severn Waterway resemblesthe history of Canada. One parallels the other. The same political and eco nomic tensions that have constantly beset the country can be identified in the canal's story: defence against American invasion, free trade versus tariff protection, private enterprise or government intervention, the problem of moving vast quantities of grain from the central plains to deep-water ports, freight rates, energy production and who should control it, and the obsessive preoccupation with federal and provincial responsibilities. What follows is a record of how these national questions affected the development of a waterway that the country could ill afford and only a handful of people wanted. Consequently, this is not a story about transportation or engineering. It is a book about politics -- the politics of dreamers." - from the dustjacket. Contents: I: The Colonial Years, 1833-41: 1.

19 Annual Register BURKE, Edmund Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks Politics and Literaturefor the Years : 1758 to 1808
Dodsley and others, London, 1758, 
Annual Register . Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks / Politics and Literature for the Year. London
The Annual Register (originally subtitled "A View of the History, Politicks and Literature of the Year ... ") is a long-established reference work, written and published each year, which records and analyses the year’s major events, developments and trends throughout the world.
It was first written in 1758 under the editorship of Edmund Burke. This collection contains much on the wars and revolutions of the eighteenth century, as well as chronicling development in most spheres of endeavour.
"The Annual Register was created in 1758 by the publishers James and Robert Dodsley. On 24 April 1758 the Dodsley brothers signed a contract with Edmund Burke (1729–97) to write and edit the material for The Annual Register, which was conceived as an annual publication which would review the history, politics and literature of the day.
Born in Ireland, Burke had trained as a lawyer before abandoning this field and turning to writing. He was an up-and-coming member of the intelligentsia and had already written several notable works, published by Dodsley. According to his contract with Dodsley, Burke was paid £100 per annum as editor of The Annual Register. In its original form, The Annual Register comprised a long historical essay on the “History of the Present War” (the Seven Years' War 1756–63), a Chronology, which gave an account of interesting and noteworthy events in Britain over the previous year, and a collection of “State Papers”, a miscellany of primary source material which included official documents, speeches,letters and accounts. In his preface to the 1758 volume Burke noted the difficulties he had faced in writing the history section of the book. Taking the “broken and unconnected materials” and creating from them “one connected narrative” had been, he commented, “a work of more labour than may at first appear”. Nevertheless, his perseverance and skill as an historian meant that by the time of its publication the first volume of The Annual Register contained a unique, contemporaneous account of the war, analysing its origins and development with a perspective not readily available at the time in newspapers or magazines. As a result the book sold widely, with the first volume going through five editions in its first 10 years. Given the conventions of the day, within which journalism was seen as a disreputable profession for a gentleman, Burke was publicly reticent about his connection with The Annual Register. However, his biographers are in agreement that Burke wrote and edited the book single-handedly until 1765 when he entered Parliament. From this time Thomas English was closely involved in writing the book and is regarded by some authorities as having taken over the editorship from Burke in that year. Scholars are divided on the question of Burke’s association with the book thereafter, although many suggest that he continued to contribute to the history section and that he played a significant role in overseeing The Annual Register’s compilation until the 1790s, even though much of the editorial work by this stage was being done by others."
