2 ABBOTT, Linda. Hull Home Fire. Paperback.
Flanker Press, St. John's, NF, 2013, ISBN:9781771172622 
ABBOTT, Linda. The Hull Home Fire. St. John's: Flanker Press, (2013). Pp. (6),1-231,(3). 8vo, illustrated orange card covers with white lettering to spine. "Day after day, thousands of people passed by an unassuming, three-storey building on the corner of New Gower and Springdale streets in St. John's. Operated by the Hull family, the ground floor was rented to a commission merchant; the top two floors and annex building were used as a private hospital for aged and infirm patients. In the dead of winter, on February 10,1948, the simple lighting of a defective oil stove in the main building se t off a chain of events that burned the Hull Home and its Annex to the ground. When the smoke cleared, searchers found death in every room and hallway. In this gripping historical novel, Linda Abbott vividly recreates St. John's of the 1940s, exploring the details of the inferno, as well as the human side, of a tragedy that could have been avoided." - from the rear cover.

6 ABENDSCHÖN, Simone Growing into Politics : Contexts and Timing of Political Socialisation
ECPR Press / European Consortium for Political Research Press, 2013, ISBN:1907301429 
ABENDSCHÖN, Simone. Growing into Politics : Contexts and Timing of Political Socialisation. (Colchester, UK) : ECPR Press , (2013). Pp (4),[v]-x,(2),[1]- 280. 8vo, blue hardcovers. In the ECPR Studies in European Political Science series. "This book presents up-to-date empirical research on crucial questions of political socialisation. It suggests new approaches and answers to a classic, but still valid question of political socialisation research: 'Who learns what from whom, under what circumstances, and with what effects?' (Greenstein 1965: 13). The volume maintains that political socialisation is no universal or independent phenomenon, but one significantly shapedby the surrounding parameters of the society in which it is embedded. Ther efore, deficits in political socialisation research have become especially clear in light of political and societal changes over recent decades. The book contributes to two important discussions in the study of political socialisation: first, the question of the (relative) importance of socialisation agents and contexts, second - inextricably interwoven with the first - the timing of political socialisation. From a European perspective, articles in the volume shed light on old problems and topics of the field, using newmethodological approaches or dealing with long-neglected perspectives such as young children's democratic learning or political socialisation.. Inclu des quantitative approaches as well as innovative and explorative case studies." from rear cover. Contents : 1.

8 ACORN, Milton). LEMM, Richard LEMM, Richard Milton Acorn : In Love and Anger. in dj. signed
Carleton University Press, Ottawa, 1999, 1999 0886293405 / 9780886293406 
(ACORN, Milton). LEMM, Richard. Milton Acorn : In Love and Anger. (Ottawa) : Carleton University Press, (1999). First Edition. Pp [i]-xiii,(1),[1]-279,(3). Illustrated. 8vo, black cloth.

"Through archival and private sources, many previously untapped, Richard Lemm connects Acorn?s self-perpetuated image as a working-class rebel, and his peculiar brand of communism, to his employment history and experience of war. The poet's troubled relationships with family members, his wife - writer Gwendolyn MacEwan - lovers, other writers and friends, and his chronic ill-health are all explored as sources of both personal pain and inspiration."

"A fine critical biography of one of Canada's great poets." - Patrick Lane.

Milton James Rhode Acorn (b. March 30, 1923, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. – d. August 20, 1986, Charlottetown), nicknamed The People's Poet by his peers, was a Canadian poet, writer, and playwright.

11 ALBANESE, Catherine L. Nature Religion in America : From the Algonkian Indians to the New Age. First Edition in dustjacket.
University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1990, ISBN:0226011453 
ALBANESE, Catherine L. Nature Religion in America : From the Algonkian Indians to the New Age . Chicago & London : University of Chicago Press, (1990). First Printing. Pp (6),vii-xvi,1-267,(5). Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This ground-breaking study reveals an unorganized and previously unacknowledged religion at the heart of American culture. Nature, Albanese argues, has provided a compelling religious center throughout American history. In a book of remarkable originality and vision, Albanese charts the multiple histories of American nature religion and explores the moral and spiritual responses the encounter with nature has provoked throughout American history. Tracing the connections between movements and individuals both unconventional and established, Albanese treats figures from popular culture, such as the nineteenth-century Hutchinson Family Singers and almanac-version Davy Crockett, as well as historically prominent culture brokers, including Thomas Jefferson, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and John Muir. Just as there are variant understandings of what nature is, there are diverse nature religions. Moving beyond Algonkian Indians, Anglo-American Puritans, and Revolutionary War patriots, Albanese argues persuasively for a classic American double vision of nature, notably articulated by Emerson and Thoreau. On the one hand, nature was real, and Americans should live in harmony with it; on the other, nature was illusory, and they should master it with the power of mind. The conceptual crack between nature real and nature illusory dogged later Americans: Albanese explores nineteenth-century wilderness preservation and mind cure and turns her attention,too, to physical forms of ature healing in movements such as water cure, h omeopathy, and chiropractic. She goes on in the twentieth century to find that the quantum provides a powerful metaphor to fill the crack between contrary views of nature. And she discovers old and new together in politicallyorganized Greens and feminist followers of' the Goddess, who also share a common landscape with nature writer Annie Dillard and Bear Tribe founder Sun Bear, with Reiki initiate healers and practitioners of macrobiotics. Throughout Nature Religion in America, Albanese emphasizes those who have not been formally trained as theologians, ceremonial leaders, or ethical guides.She demonstrates that nature religion in America has flourished among a ca dre of people who have thought and acted for themselves. The first of its kind, this study is a preliminary guide to a vast and previously uncharted religious world."" - from the dj. Foreword, by Martin E.

"Of all the remarkable people who first opened up the rest of the world to the Europeans Columbus, Magellan, Vasco da Gama, Pizarro and Cortes Afonso de Albuquerque, governor of Portuguese India from 1509 to 1515, was one of the most astonishing. He was a commander of bold strategic conceptions, a far-sighted administrator and inaddition a talented writer, whose dispatches to King Manuel contain a weal th of spontaneous narrative, description and pungent comment. Caesar of theEast is a specially edited anthology, based on the original Portuguese tex ts, of selections from these dispatches, or Cartas , and from the Comentarios (Commentaries) written by Albuquerque's son, also called Afonso, about his father's career, with new English translations of both. In the introduction Dr Villiers evaluates the part that Albuquerque played in the foundation of the Portuguese empire in Asia, and Dr Earle provides a literary analysis of the contrasting styles of the Cartas and the Comentarios , where the father's informality and spontaneity contrast fascinatingly with his son's carefully contrived and highly literary narrative. Historical and geographical notes help the reader to understand the text." (from the back cover). Contents : Preface.

Large 8vo, white cardcovers. "There is a healthy development in the human service professions these days. At community clinics, private practices, and universities around the country mental health professionals and service providers are working with increased awareness of the toxic effects of social inequities in the lives of people they aim to help. Quietly, by acting out their beliefs on justice and equality, clinicians are redressing the balance between professing our craftas clinicians and professing our humanity as citizens. Advancing Social Ju stice Through Clinical Practice is a comprehensive volume that bridges the gap between the psychosocial realities of clients and the dominant clinicalpractices. It offers an array of conceptual and practical innovations to a ddress both individual suffering and social inequities fueling this suffering. This is an empowering tool and a must read for mental health professionals. The accessible writing style also makes it ideal for teachers and students in the field. The book opens with a discussion of the historical, ethical, and experiential foundations for the development of social justice-based practice. Parts II and III present conceptual frameworks, strategies, and techniques used by social justice oriented practitioners. The final section discusses various ways to develop the skills and competencies required of mental health professionals aspiring to be both agents of individual and social transformation. Filled with hope, critical analysis, and uncommon clinical wisdom, this is a book like no other in the field." Foreword; Preface; Part I.: Steps Toward A Social Justice Therapeutic Practice. 1.

19 ALEXANDER, Caroline Bounty : The True Story of the Mutiny on the Bounty. in dj.
Viking, New York, 2003, ISBN:067003133X 
ALEXANDER, Caroline. The Bounty : The True Story of the Mutiny on the Bounty. (New York) : Viking, (2003). First Printing. Pp (18),1-491,(3),+ 40 pp plates. Index. 8vo, green paper covered spine, light green paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. "Just before sunrise on the morning of April 28, 1789, in the far reaches of the South Pacific. Master’s Mate Fletcher Christian and three other men, armed with cutlasses, bayonets and a musket, apprehended Lieutenant William Bligh and placed him and eighteen officers and crewmen in a small boat. This mutiny on board His Majesty’s armed transport Bounty impelled every man on a fateful course - Bligh and his loyalistson a historic boat voyage. Christian and his followers on their restless e xile. Bligh himself returned to Britain as a hero, but that was not his final destiny. Ten of the Bounty’s crew were eventually captured in Tahiti andbrought back to England in irons to face their day in court and it was in the dynamics and politics of their court-martial and its aftermath that thestory we know - or think we know - as the mutiny on the Bounty was shaped. [...] The facts of the mutiny itself are told in Admiralty records, but fo r the truth behind the story Alexander has ranged further, gleaning detailsfrom the wills, diaries and correspondence of figures not obviously connec ted to the events, from obscure news items and from the biographies and family pedigrees of seemingly minor players. She casts a radical new light on the events, on Bligh’s character and on a welter of family connections and special interests that play crucial roles at different moments in the story. Using contemporary accounts, and particularly the mutineers’ own testimony, she allows the men themselves to conjure the events and transport the reader back to the deck of the Bounty, to exotic islands in the South Pacificand to the back rooms of British naval power. Only when we look at the who le story, from before the Bounty left England until well after the death ofthe last participant, do we understand what happened and why." - from the dj. Name, else very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
