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

7 Arctic Journal MOLLOY, Arthur E. MULLER, Fritz ARMSTRONG, Terence Arctic: Journal of the Arctic Institute of North America. Volume 15, No. 2,June 1962
Arctic Institute of North America, Montreal , 1962, 
(Arctic). Arctic : Journal of the Arctic Institute of North America. Volume15, No. 2, June 1962. Montreal : Arctic Institute of North America, 1962. Pp [85]-171,(1). Illustrated. Maps. 8vo, illustrated green stapled wrappers. Includes: Arthur E. Molloy's "Arctic Science and the Nuclear Submarine" (pp 86-91) - "The entire Arctic Ocean has now ceased to be remote and is open to study on a year-round basis by nuclear submarines (Strong 1961). Admittedly, there are limitations to the use of a nuclear submarine for arctic research, but the advantages heavily out-weigh the disadvantages. First among the advantages to be gained through the use of this type of vehicle is mobility (Lyon and Boyle 1962). The nuclear submarine is a self-contained community capable of operating under all arctic conditions for extended periods of time. Its mobility is not a function of pre-determined drift patterns,for the submarine can be directed to any desired place, at a wide range of speed and depth. With its special equipment, such as underwater television and SONAR, it can "see" and "hear" below the surface (Steele 1962). There is adequate space for modest laboratory facilities, a controlled atmosphere, and accommodation for a scientific staff, who are comfortable and have every incentive for conducting research (Molloy 1961). Another advantage, andan equally important one, is the natural protection that the arctic enviro nment offers to the submarine. The polar ice pack that presents such serious obstacles to the conduct of oceanographic research from the surface can be used to advantage by the nuclear submarine. It provides a nearly homogeneous environment free from disturbances of weather and other factors that the oceanographer encounters in the open ocean. The advantages of submarine research in the Arctic are even more readily apparent after evaluating the accomplishments of the U.S. Navy's arctic submarine cruises during the past few years. The floor of the Arctic Ocean was sounded continuously during each cruise (Lyon and Boyle 1962). As a result of this, there is now more information available on the bathymetry of the Arctic Ocean than had been obtained during the previous 75 years of arctic exploration. We have now more data relating to the ice pack over broad areas and under various seasonal conditions than ever before. Ice and water samples, as well as bathythermograph observations, also have been obtained at various points in the arctic basin (LaFond 1960). In addition the submarine itself has been a prime research tool whose advantages have not been limited to being a vehicle for transportation (Lyon and Boyle 1962). For example, surfacings through the ice have answered some of the questions relating to the ice cover. In many respects the Arctic has been the laboratory and the submarine the instrument withwhich the research was carried out (Lyon 1961). The arctic cruises of the U.S. Navy submarines have not been conducted as purely oceanographic ventures, but diversified scientific programs have been carried out during each of the cruises (Strong 1961). It is manifest from these modest beginnings that Arthur E. Molloy's "uclear submarine is an ideal platform from which to launch a research program of rather large dimensions." (quoted from pp 88-89). Also, W.F. Weeks and O.S. Lee's "The salinity distribution in young sea-ice" (pp 92-108); J.V. Drew and J.C.F. Tedrow's "Arctic soil classification and patterned ground" (pp 109-116); L.C.

12 ATWOOD, Margaret Year of the Flood : A Novel. First Edition in dustjacket
McClelland & Stewart, Toronto, 2009, ISBN:9780771008443 
ATWOOD, Margaret. The Year of the Flood : A Novel. (Toronto) : McClelland &Stewart, (2009). First Printing. Pp (14),[3]-434,(2). 8vo, grey cloth, red lettering to spine. "Margaret Atwood’s eagerly anticipated new novel is a testament to her remarkable literary mastery and imaginative power. Though set in the undefined near future, the novel reflects a world we very much recognise and poignantly reminds us of our own enduring humanity. The times and species have been changing at a rapid rate, and the social compact is wearing as thin as environmental stability. Adam One, the kindly leader of the God’s Gardeners – a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion, as well as the preservation of all plant and animal life – has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life. Two women have survived: Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked away in the high-end sex club where she works, andToby, a God’s Gardener who barricades herself inside a luxurious spa where many of the treatments are edible. Have others survived? Ren’s bio-artist friend Amanda? Zeb, her eco-fighter stepfather? Her onetime lover, Jimmy? Or the murderous Painballers? Not to mention the CorpSeCorps, the shadowy, corrupt policing force of the ruling powers… As Adam One and his followers make their way through a changed world, Ren and Toby will each find their way out, leading to the novel’s unexpected and affecting conclusion. By turnsdark, tender, violent, thoughtful, and uneasily hilarious, The Year of the Flood is Atwood at her most brilliant and inventive." (from the dj). Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00

"When Juanita McKenzie came home in 1998 to find two men in white environmental suits posting a sign that read "Human Health Hazard" behind her neighbor's house, she knew that something was terribly wrong. For the people of Frederick Street in Sydney, Nova Scotia, the past was about to come crashing into the present. They wereliving next door to one of the worst toxic waste sites in North America. H ow did an estuary that was once a pristine body of water become a cesspool containing 700,000 tons of toxic sludge, a site 35 times worse than the infamous Love Canal? [...] tels for the first time the compelling story of a once-beautiful area where 100 hundred years ago the Mi'kmaq lived and fishedand early settlers enjoyed the bounty of the ocean. With the coming of the steel plant at the beginning of the century, areas near the plant in the c entre of Sydney were to pay a heavy price for the promise of employment. Since the Second World War, attempts to deal with the excesses of industrialization have proved to be not only costly but virtually unworkable for a constantly changiong series of owners. Today, the people of Frederick Street, and the surrounding community of Whitney Pier, face the end of their community and the constant threat of illness and disease." - from the dj.

BARLOW, Maude. Frederick Street : Life and Death on Canada's Love Canal. (Toronto : HarperCollins, 2000). First Printing Trade Paperback. Pp (12),1-227,(1) + 8 pages of plates. 8vo, ill. card covers. "How did an estuary that was once a pristine body of water become a cesspool containing 700,00 tons of toxic sludge, a site 35 times worse than the infamous Love Canal? 'Frederick Street' tells for the first time the compelling story of a once-beautiful area where 100 years ago the Mi'kmaq lived and fished and early settlers enjoyed the bounty of the ocean. Above all, thogh, it's a story about people -- ordinary working-class people who fight to preserve their dignity, to overcome ill-informed bureaucrats, and to find justice and peace of mind for their families, while struggling with the daily devastation of disease and death from toxic exposure. Fully researched and well-documented with the real-life stories of the native Mi'kmaq, the steelworkers and their families, and concerned citizens of this Cape Breton community, 'Frederick Street' sends out a passionate message to all Canadians whose own communities face the danger of toxic waste and environmental destruction." - from rear.
