Bollingen Series XXXII. ""This volume offers a representative coll ection of native African myths and folktales accompanied by selected examples of the plastic art stemming from the same culture. In assembling these narratives from the unwritten literature of this area, Dr. Radin has drawn upon the so-called true Negro tribes of west Agfrica, the Bantu-speaking tribes of central, east, and south Africa, the half-Hamites of the Nile headwaters, and the Bushmen and Hottentots of the extreme south and south-west. Dr. Radin emphasizes that theirs is possibly the most sophisticated of all aboriginal literatures, though it has not become so well known as the sculpture of native Africa, which during the past fifty years has so strongly influenced the art of the contemporary western world."

Double Column. 8vo,illustrated white card covers, lettered in black. Of nautical interest : S ocial Flux at the Naval Establishment at Penetanguishene, Lake Huron, 1817–1834 (by John R. Triggs, pp 105-135). Abstract : "Factors influencing the spatial arrangement of buildings at the Royal Navy establishment at Penetanguishene on Lake Huron are discussed. Excavation at the naval hospital at this site provides new insight into the residential movements of the various social groups at the base. Analysis of stratigraphy and artifacts recoveredfrom the hospital suggests that the assistant naval surgeon and his wife, military officers, and aboriginal people resided in the structure at various times over a 17-year period. Contemporary attitudes toward social and economic status, service rank/rating, and aboriginal people are explored within the context of the archaeological and documentary evidence to explain changes in residential patterning through time."

Mi’sel Joe also speaks of a community fighting for the right to determine its own future. He tells of the struggle to revitalize traditional values in the face of racial prejudice. He reveals the steps being taken by aboriginal leaders, both in this province and elsewhere, to help their people gain respect in a white man’s world without losing their own identity.

March 18, 1905, Quebec City, Quebec – d. April 21, 1997, Fredericton, New Brunswick). Helm, The Indians of the Subarctic : A Critical Bibliography 9. "The movement of one cultural group into the territory of another has always produced conflict: a conflict which is resolved at times by the obliteration of one group, but more often by a gradual fusion of elements drawn from both. This study examines the conflict between the Europeans and the Indians precipitated by the arrival of the French in the New World. The Indians were necessarily affected by the fur trade andthe religious and social development of New France, and the meeting of contrary cultures resulted in most cases in the obliteration of that of the Indian. However, a fusion of Indian and European elements sometimes occurred, resulting in the birth of a 'Canadian' culture. The process has been repeated with teh immigration of every new cultural group to Canada. This study analyses the conflict and traces thef usion of Canadian culture in its initial stage. First published in 1937, the book has proved an important contribution to an area of early Canadian history which has been receiving renewed attention. This volume is a reprinting of the original text with the addition of an index and a chapter appraising some of the leading developments of the past few years." - from the dustjacket. Chapters : 1.

University of Toronto Press, Toronto / Buffalo / London, 2012, ISBN:9781442611092 
BANNISTER, Jerry, and Liam RIORDAN (eds.). The Loyal Atlantic : Remaking the British Atlantic in the Revolutioary Era. Toronto / Buffalo / London : University of Toronto Press, (2012). First Paperback Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xxi,(5),[3]-318,(2). Maps. Index. 8vo, art-illustrated card covers, lettered in black and white. ""Adding to a dynamic new wave of scholarship in Atlantic history, The Loyal Atlantic offers fresh interpretations of the key roleplayed by Loyalism in shaping the early modern British Empire. This cohesi ve collection investigates how Loyalism and the empire were mutually constituted and reconstituted from the eighteenth century onward. Featuring contributions by authors from across Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom, The Loyal Atlantic brings Loyalism into a genuinely international focus. Through cutting-edge archival research, The Loyal Atlantic contextualizes Loyalism within the larger history of the British Empire. It also details how, far from being a passive allegiance, Loyalism changed in unexpected and fascinating ways - especially in times of crisis. Most importantly, The Loyal Atlantic demonstrates that neither the conquest of Canada nor the American Revolution can be properly understood without assessing the meanings of Loyalism in the wider Atlantic world."
