1 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

2 ALEXANDER, Bruce K. Globalisation of Addiction : A Study in Poverty of the Spirit. First Edition in dustjacket.
Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2008, ISBN:9780199230129 
ALEXANDER, Bruce K. The Globalisation of Addiction : A Study in Poverty of the Spirit. Oxford: Oxford University Press, (2008). First Printing. Pp. (12),[1]-470,(6), + 2 p. of colour plates. 8vo, black cloth with silver lettering to spine. The author is affiliated with the Department of Psychology at Simon Fraser University. "Scientific medicine has failed to bring addiction under control. There are no reliable methods to cure it, prevent it, or take the pain out of it. There is no durable consensus on what addiction is, what causes it, or what should be done about it. Meanwhile, it continues to increase around the world. This book argues that the cause of this failure to control addiction is that the conventional wisdom of the 19th and 20th centuries focused too single-mindedly on the afflicted individual addict.Although addiction obviously manifests itself in individual cases, its pre valence differs dramatically between societies. [...] This book shows that the social circumstances that spread addiction in a conquered tribe or a failing civilisation are also built into today's globalising free-market society. [...] The book [also] argues that the most effective response to a growing addiction problem is a social and poltiical one, rather than an individual one. Such a solution would not put the doctors, psychologists, social workers, politicians, and priests, who have served with such dedication, out of work, but it would incorporate their practices in a larger social preoject. The project is to reshape society with enough forces and imagination to enable people to find social integration and meaning in everyday life." - from the dustjacket.

5 BLOCH, Sidney, and Peter REDDAWAY REDDAWAY, Peter Soviet Psychiatric Abuse : The Shadow over World Psychiatry . First American Edition in dustjacket
Westview Press, Boulder, Colorado, 1985, ISBN:0813302099 
BLOCH, Sidney, and Peter REDDAWAY. Soviet Psychiatric Abuse : The Shadow over World Psychiatry. Boulder, Colorado : Westview Press, (1985). First American Edition. Pp (6),[7]-288,+ 16 pp plates. Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

"Now, in their new book, these two authors describe the ensuing struggle to alert the world to this outrage against human rights and human dignity, and thus to put pressure upon the Soviet Union to end this odious practice. The struggle has not been an easy one. The World Psychiatric Association (WPA), which links together the many national psychiatric organizations, has been deeply divided. Communist-aligned countries have of course supported the Soviet Union and have denounced the allegations as Cold War propaganda: the authors' own book was branded as "well- composed slander". And many Western psychiatrists took the view that it would be detrimental to the welfare of the WPA to allow political matters to intrude into what was essentiallv a scientific body. The issue came to a head, dramatically, at the WPA's Honolulu Congress, when at the end of a cliff-hanging debate a resolution condemning Soviet practice was passed by a small majority.

Now the battle was joined. The Russians proposed to defy the resolution. The WPA set up a Review Committee to investigate and publicize all further cases of psychiatric abuse. The Russians suppressed a remarkable pressure group set up by dissidents inside the Soviet Union, which for four years (1977-81) had documented the abuses in great detail and addressed many appeals to the West - all its members were arrested, psychiatrist Anatoly Koryagin drawing the longest sentence—of 12 years. The book contains the first systematic account of this group's heroic work. Within the WPA, the Russians stalled and prevaricateited, but none-the-less some Western psychiatrists were able to visit the Soviet Union and assess some 'ex-patients' for themmselves. Finally, with the approach of the next WPA Congress (Vienna, 1983), and the strong possibility of expulsion, the Russians chose to antricipate this move and resigned from the world organization. The Congress was confused, but the vote condemning psychiatric abuse was overwhelming this time." (from the dj).

8 BOYLE, Everett. Rest of the Story : According to Boyle
General Store Publishing House, Burnstown, Ontario , 2002, ISBN:1894263499 
BOYLE, Everett. Rest of the Story : According to Boyle. (Burnstown, Ontario: General Store Publishing House, 2002). First Edition. Pp (2),[3]-297,(3) . 8vo, illustrated blue card covers, lettered in yellow and white. "The story made headlines across Canada: for decades, harassment, abuse, physical attack and sexual assault had been covered up in the Canadian Armed Forces. As a warrant officer during that time, Everett Boyle witnessed a number of these cover-ups and had documented them. He might have been content with that, if it weren't for the fact that he knew there was more, much more that had not come out in the media coverage. The Rest of the Story is his gripping account of the hidden events that never made it into the newspapwers andmagazines. Boyle pulls no punches. "One ol my reasons for moving back to N ewfoundland was to get away from the memory of the humiliation, emotional trauma, threats, abuse, harassment and mistreatment that had been unfairly inflicted upon two of my defenceless young subordinates and on me back in 1991. These attacks were perpetrated against the three of us for having udared to cnaiienge the misconduct of a superior military commander. They were planned and orchestrated by generals in the highest ranks and positions in the air force." The Rest of the Story is a courageous and hard-hitting indictment of moral cowardice at the very top of our military institutions. But Boyle does not merely point the accusing finger, he proposes responsible remedies, and it is this that makes his book an important document." (from publisher's promotional flyer).

9 BRAND, Dionne BHAGGIYADATTA, Sri Rivers Have Sources, Trees Have Roots : Speaking of Racism.
Cross Cultural Communication Centre, Toronto, 1986, ISBN:0969106068 
BRAND, Dionne, and Krisantha Sri BHAGGIYADATTA. Rivers Have Sources, Trees Have Roots : Speaking of Racism. Toronto : Cross Cultural Communication Centre, (1986). Pp (5),i-iii,1-182. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated black card covers. Contents : 1. The Culture of Everyday. 2. Childhood. 3. Work. 4. Rivers Have Sources, Trees Have Roots. 5. Continuing the Fight. Dionne Brand (born 1953), a Caribbean-born Canadian poet, novelist, essayist and documentarian. She was named Toronto’s third Poet Laureate in September 2009. “In Rivers Have Sources, Trees Have Roots (1986) Brand and co-author Krisantha Sri Bhaggiyadatta interviewed a hundred people from the Canadian Native, Black, Chinese, and South Asian communities about their perspectives of racismand how it has impacted their lives. From these stories and recollections of childhood to workplace experiences, the authors critiqued the existence and commonality of racism, disparities and resistance. They argue that two themes exist where racism prevails in the lives of the interviewees and these themes are through "the culture of racism" and through the structural and institutional ways. Consequently, economic hardship, lack of employment and career choices and opportunities are some of the experiences identified by the minority, ethnic groups and immigrants. Brand recognizes that there are also different forms of struggles and visions to combat racism. This book attempts to give each individual a voice, an opportunity to speak about their personal and immigration stories as part of a historical validation and as part of a third in a series of anti-racism literature. Women and men spoke of their anger, resentments, and complaints of racial tensions of abuse, isolation, staring, name calling and being treated as different and inferior. Brand addresses how racism is used as a powerful tool to censor oppositional voices and she opposes the media report that racism occurs in isolated cases or unusual crisis.” - wikipedia.

Apple blossoms, lush farms and lovely, secluded beaches have graced photographs and postcards without number. But there has beena dark evil within this idyllic land for more than two hundred years. Overlooking the Valley is South Mountain, a long ridge of hills covered by dense forests which conceal tiny hamlets and isolated clusters of shacks setin small clearings. Lately, parts of the Mountain have become desirable pl aces to live. But for most of the last two centuries it has been home to the 'Clans' -- thirty or so tight family groupings, living in their various Mountain enclaves [in] the kind of poverty and deprivation associated only with the world's poorest nations. [...] Then one day, a fourteen-year-old Mountain girl told authorities thather father had been 'using her as a wife'.This revelation sparked a massive investigation which revealed a horrific tale of incest, sexual and physical abuse and psychological torture. Eventually, sixteen men and women, almost an entire generation of one Clan, facedmore than one hundred and fifty criminal charges. At the same time, eleven children, also an entire generation of the same Clan, were taken from thei r homes. The Valley's dark secrets are reveealed [...] in this mesmerizing account of what has gone on behind the picture postcard. For over a century, church officials, academics, politicians, teachers, social workers and doctors knew what was happening on South Mountain -- but they chose to look the other way. 'On South Mountain' is more than just an unveiling of the Clan's dark secrets. It is a social history of the Mountain and Valley." - from the dust jacket. Chapters: 1. The Mountain & the Valley; 2.
