3 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.

4 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.

ALDARONDO, Etiony, (ed.). Advancing Social Justice Through Clinical Practice. Mahwah, New Jersey & London : John Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, (2007). Second Printing. Pp [(4),v]-xxiv,(2),3-496. 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.

6 ANDERSON, Doris Rebel Daughter: An Autobiography. First Edition in dustjacket
Key Porter, Toronto, 1996, ISBN:1550137670 
ANDERSON, Doris. Rebel Daughter : An Autobiography. (Toronto) : Key Porter,(1996). First Printing. Pp 288 + plates. 8vo, black cloth. Doris Hilda And erson, (b. November 10, 1921 in Calgary - d. March 2, 2007, Toronto) . "As the editor of Chatelaine magazine from 1957 to 1977, Doris Anderson blazed a trail for Canadian women. Long before Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique was published, Anderson's editorials on abortion, women in the work force, child care, divorce settlements, custody arrangements, pay equity, and female sexual fulfilment challenged the prevailing social order and laid thefoundation for the feminist movement in Canada. [...] This fascinating and insightful autobiography describes that sometimes turbulent childhood in D epression-era Alberta and Anderson's years as a teacher in one-room schoolhouses. It follows her efforts to establish herself as a professional journalist in Toronto in the late 1940s, and records the frustrations and triumphs of an immensely capable woman coming up against a male-dominated journalistic establishment. [...] Finally, Rebel Daughter documents Anderson's timeas head of the Canadian Advisory Council on the Status of Women, when she led the fight that resulted in one simple statement being enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms : men and women are equal under thelaw." - from the dj.

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

"This book is the first of its kind. Using the critical innovtions and revolutionary insights of Anglo-American and French feminist thinking, Joe Andrew seeks to offer radically new interpretations of the 'classics' of the golden age of Russian literature. Analysing themajor works of Pushkin, Gogol, Lermontov and Turgunev amongst others from these perspectives, the author is able to identify a tendency which, contrary to the myth of the 'strong woman' of Russian literature, usually marginalises women or openly denigrates them within the age-old misogynistic tradition of Western culture. Only with the 'new Eves' of Turgunev and Chrnyshevsky do Russian fictional women begin to escape the 'cages' or 'cellars' in which the almost exclusively male canon had confined them." - from the dustjacket.

What is remarkable about this report is that the women who were the activists in the 70s, and who were the pioneers in their respective private or public lives, are still actively involved and able to share their experiences first-hand. The report reveals that women entering the 21st century are more aware, more-self-sufficient, better educatedand better prepared to play an exciting role in the continuing development of women in this province."

18 CASEBIER, Allan Film and Phenomenology : Towards a Realist Theory of Cinematic Representation (Cambridge Studies in Film). First Edition in dustjacket
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge , 1991, ISBN:0521411327 
CASEBIER, Allan. Film and Phenomenology : Towards a Realist Theory of Cinematic Representation. Cambridge, &c : Cambridge University Press, (1991). First Edition. Pp (6),v-vii,(1),1-165,(1). 8vo, black cloth, silver letteringto spine. In the Cambridge Studies in Film series. "In Film and Phenomenol ogy, Allan Casebier develops a theory of representation first indicated in the writings of the father of phenomenology, Edmund Husserl, and then applies it to the case of cinematic representation. This work provides one of the clearest expositions of Husserl's highly influential but often obscure thought. It also demonstrates the power of phenomenology to illuminate the experience of the art form unique to the twentieth-century cinema. Film and Phenomenology is intended as an antidote to all hitherto existing theories about the nature of cinematic representation, whether issuing from classic sources such as the film theory of Andre Bazin or the post-structuralist synthesis of Lacanian psychoanalysis, Barthesian textual analysis and Metzean cine-semiotics. Casebier shows how a phenomenological account of representation will further the aims of any film theory. Developing a viable feministfilm theory, legitimising the documentary, answering the challenge of Derr idean deconstruction, properly theorising narrativity, Film and Phenomenology argues that theory of film must be Realist both with respect to epistemology and ontological issues. In this way, this work runs contrary to the whole course of contemporary film theory, which has been deeply anti-Realist." - from the dustjacket. Contents : Introduction. I. Phenomenological theory: Husserl's theory of artistic representation; The concept of the noema; The ontology of cinematic representation; The epistemology of cinematic representation; Transaction, transparency, and transcendence; Husserl's epistemology as told by Jean-Louis Baudry; Notes.

Lesley Willis Choyce (b. March 21, 1951, Riverside Township, New Jersey), novelist, poet, educator and publisher.

"Taylor Colby and his childhood sweetheart, Laura, abandoned their Nova Scotia coastal village home for a life in the high-octane world of rock music in California. Now, after Laura's drug-related death, Taylor has returned to his roots to live once again with his noble but isolated boat-builder father.

Complicating matters further, Taylor's mother, who has been battling cancer, attempts to reconcile with both her husband and son whom she deserted decades earlier. As Taylor grapples with family dysfunction, he becomes involved with Jillian, a feminist professor from Philadelphia, and her troubled twelve-year-old son, who are also on the run from a past they can't seem to escape." - from the front flap.
