1 ALFOLDY, Sandra. McGill-Queen's/Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation Studies in Art History Allied Arts : Architecture and Craft in Postwar Canada.
McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal & Kingston, 2012, ISBN:9780773540033 
ALFOLDY, Sandra. The Allied Arts : Architecture and Craft in Postwar Canada. Montreal and Kingston: McGill-Queens University Press, (2012). Pp. (10),[xi]-xv,(9) of illustrations,[1]-227,(1). Illustrated, sometimes in colour. Large 8vo, illustrated blue and green card covers with white spine, yellow and white lettering to front cover, black lettering to spine, french flaps.A volume in the McGill-Queen's/Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation Studies in Art History series. "During periods of close collaboration, championed by figures like John Ruskin and William Morris, architecture and craft were referred to as 'the allied arts'. By the mid-twentieth century, however, it was more common for the two disciplines to be considered distinct professional fields, with architecture having little to do with studio craft. 'The Allied Arts' investigates the history of the complex relationship between craft and architecture by examining their intersection in Canadian public buildings. Sandra Alfoldy explains the challenges facing the development of public craft and documents the largely ignored public craft commissions of the post-war era. The book highlights theg global concerns of material, scale, form, ornament, and identity shared by architects and craftspeople. It alsostudies the ways in which the allied arts are mediated by institutions and the fragility of craft commissions that were once considered an integral p art of the built environment. Considering a wide range of craftspeople, materials, and forms -- from the ceramics of Jack Sures and Jordi Bonet to thetextile work of Mariette Rousseau-Vermette and Carole Sabiston -- Alfoldy celebrates the successes of architectural craftsmanship, developing ideas about the complex relationship between architecture and craft that reach well beyond national boundaries." - from the rear cover.

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

Index. 8vo, illustrated card covers. "The village of Enniskillen, a sleepy cluster of a few dozen houses in New Brunswick’s Queens County, has never been invaded by a foreign power. But during the 1950s to 1970s, the village was ground zero for a different kind of offensive, this one launched by the American and Canadian military against its own people with the deadly dioxin Agent Orange. Between 1956 and 1984 the Canadian military and its private subcontractors sprayed more than 1 million litres of rainbow herbicides around New Brunswick. The American military was invited to test Agent Purple and other toxins on Canadian soil after the chemicals had been banned by the U.S. Congress. This is the story of a war coming home; a story of the military and economic currents that allowed Agent Orange to blow through trees and into rivers in New Brunswick. More than anything, it’s a story of soldiers, civilians and local residents who blew back against the government and companies who poisoned them." - from the back cover. Very good. 9.00

"According to Labour Canada, workers in the offshore fishery are more likely to be injured than workers in mining, construction, or forestry. Yet until recently these casualties at sea have been largely Ignored by government and labour organizations. Risks, Dangers, and Rewards in the Nova Scotia Offshore Fishery describes the hidden cost paid by workers in the Nova Scotia offshore fishery, a cost measured not in dollars and cents but in deaths and injuries. In this comprehensive evaluation of the Nova Scotia offshore fishery Marian Binkley documents the level of risk and assesses the general health and stress levels of workers in the industry. She considers shipboard working environment;stress; accidents, injuries, and general health; safety awareness, job sat isfaction and family life; and the impact on working conditions of government resource policies and companies' scientific management strategies. Usingstatistical analysis, participant observation, surveys, and both formal an d informal interviews, Binkley establishes that factors such as home and community life and the unforeseen consequences of changes in technology and management of the fishery affect the immediate work experience of fishers and can increase the dangers of an already hazardous occupation.

18 BISHOP, Elizabeth). PICKARD, Zachariah. Elizabeth Bishop's Poetics of Description. First Edition in dustjacket.

(BISHOP, Elizabeth). PICKARD, Zachariah. Elizabeth Bishop's Poetics of Description. Montreal & Kingston, London, Ithaca: McGill-Queen's University Press, (2009). First Printing. Pp. (8),[ix]-x,(2),[1]-212. 8vo, black paper covered board with silver lettering to spine. "Many readers are struck by Elizabeth bishop's use of clear, striking descriptions of the physical world, but no scholar has ever analysed how Bishop's commitment to description shapes her writing and thinking. 'Elizabeth Bisop's Poetics of Description' argues that attention to the material realm informs everything Bishop does. Seen through the lens, many familiar topics look remarkably different. Bishop's relationship to travel, epiphany, surrealism, and imagery are all transformed and a timely new Bishop emerges -- one quite different from the postmodern poet that has dominated recent scholarship. Zachariah Picard eschewsacademic jargon and concentrates on the poems themselves as well as on a n umber of key prose passages that have long been overlooked. His study combines scholarly rigor with clarity and common sense to present a moving new account of Bishop's work that will appeal to educated readers within and without the academy." - from the dustjacket.
