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

BAILEY, Petera. Leisure and Class in Victorian England : Ritual recreation and the contest for control, 1830-1885. London : Routledge & Kegan Paul / Toronto and Buffalo : University of Toronto Press, (1978) First Edition. Pp (8),ix-x,1-260,(2). Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. In the Studies in Social History series. "This study examines the transformationof popular leisure from 1830 to 1885 and the middle class schemes for "rat ional recreation", which attempted to reform the leisure habits and amenities of the working classes. It is based on extensive reading of contemporaryperiodicals, the specialist press, government reports and social commentar ies on working class life, much of it previously unused by researchers, anddraws on local evidence. After describing the lively state of working clas s recreations and the social problem that they represented to contemporary reformers, Peter Bailey explores the phenomenon of the new leisure world which overtook Victorian society from the middle of the century, discussing the changing role of leisure for the middle class and the implication for social control and the various campaigns for "rational recreation". The increasing activity and debate among reformers influenced popular culture in three specific areas: the reform experiment of the Working Men's Club movement; the promotion of organized games and the new athleticism; and the emergent mass entertainment industry of the music halls, all of which are examinedin detail. The study assesses the general impact of this attempt to impose a new play discipline and the resistance it met with in working class life , and concludes with a discussion of the implications of the development ofmodern leisure for the broader questions of class relationships and consci ousness." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. 1. Popular recreation in the early Victorian town. 2. Rational recreation: voices of improvement. 3.The new leisure world of the mid-Victorians: the expansion of middle-class recreation, its practice and problems. 4. Dispensing recreation to the mas ses in the new leisure world. 5. Rational recreation in operation: the Working Men's Club movement. 6. Rational recreation and the new athleticism. 7.Rational recreation and the entertainment industry: the case of the Victor ian music halls. Conclusions.

Illustrated. Double and Triple Column. Index. Oblong large 8vo, illustrated yellow card covers. "Before the First World War, Winnipeg was Canada's third-largest city and the undisputed metropolis of the West. Rapid growth had given the city material prosperity, but little of its wealth went to culture or the arts. Despite the city's fragile cultural veneer, the enthusiasm and dedication of members of the arts community and a group of public-spirited citizens led to the establishment of the Winnipeg Art Gallery in 1912 and the Winnipeg School of Artin 1913. This volume is a history in words and illustration of the early y ears of the Winnipeg School of Art – its hopes and ideals and its strugglesfor survival. Its story is in large part a record of art and artists in Wi nnipeg during the period. The growth of the School is described through theterms of its first four principals: Alexander Musgrove, Frank Johnston, Ke ith Gebbhardt, and L. LeMoine Fitzgerald. Biographical sketches on artists involved with the School as teachers or students from 1913 to 1934 are alsoincluded. Reproductions of over 80 selected works from the exhibition mark ing the seventieth anniversary of the founding of the School, eight in fullcolour, present the most vital and provocative art of the period." - from the back cover.
