"This study of Jakarta presents the first general history of the city. It follows two main themes. One is the clash between dream and reality. For nearly 400 years, governments have wanted Jakarta to be the show-piece for their policies in the Indonesian archipelago. From 1619 until 1949, the Dutch saw the city as a European enclave displaying the gifts of good government and modern technology which they brought to their East Indies. After independence, President Sukarno lavished attention on his capital, hoping to make it the pride of the nation and the Beacon of the New Emerging Forces. Since Sukarno's fall, the New Order Government has channelled investment into Jakarta and carried through extensive modernization plans in line with its general aim of economic development for Indonesia. This book looks at the consequences of those centuries of policies for Jakarta, and in particular for the vast majority of its inhabitants who have always been too poor to fit into plans for the city.

The other main theme is the rich complexity of Jakarta's population. For centuries the city grew relatively slowly, and immigrant groups of Chinese, Arabs, Europeans and Indonesians from all over the archipelago mingled to produce unique cultural forms. In the last 40 years, that intricate web has been torn apart by political changes and massive waves of Indonesian immigrants who are still struggling to create their own urban culture in a predominantly rural country."

2 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.

BAILY, Samuel L. Immigrants in the Lands of Promise : Italians in Buenos Aires and New York City, 1870-1914. Ithaca & London : Cornell University Press, (1999). First Printing. Pp. (6),v-vi,1-280. With several maps, tables and graphs in the text . 8vo, maroon cloth spine with silver lettering, off-white boards.. In the Cornell Studies in Comparative History series. "Most studies of immigration to the New World have focused on the United States. Samuel L. Baily's eagerly awaited book broadens that perspective through a comparative analysis of Italian immigrants to Buenos Aires and New York Citybefore World War I. It is one of the few works to trace Italians from thei r villages of origin to different destinations abroad. Baily examines the adjustment of Italians in the two cities, comparing such factors as employment opportunities, skill levels, pace of migration, degree of prejudice, anddevelopment of the Italian community. Of the two destinations, Buenos Aire s offered Italians more extensive opportunities, and those who elected to move there tended to have the appropriate education or training to succeed. These immigrants, who adjusted more rapidly than their North American counterparts, adopted a long-term strategy of investing savings in their New World home. In New York, in contrast, the immigrants found fewer skilled and white-collar jobs, more competition from previous immigrant groups, greater discrimination, and a less supportive Italian enclave. As a result, rather than put down roots, many sought to earn money as rapidly as possible and send their earnings back to family in Italy. Baily views the migration process as a global phenomenon. Building on his richly documented case studies, the author briefly examines Italian communities in San Francisco, Toronto, and Sao Paulo. He establishes a continuum of immigrant adjustment in urban settings, creating a landmark study in both immigration and comparative history." - from the dj.

BECK, Jeanne R. To Do and to Endure : The Life of Catherine Donnelly, Sister of Service. Toronto / Oxford : Dundurn Press, (1997). First Printing. Pp [1]-329,(7),+ 32 pp plates. Illustrated. Index. 8vo, violet-red cloth, giltcrest to front board and lettering to spine.

“When teacher Catherine Donne lly first arrived in Western Canada from Ontario in 1918, she discovered two things: first, the need for a Catholic presence in the rural public schools of the west, and second, her own calling to be a religious. Catherine saw that the west was growing rapidly, and that there was a lack of religious guidance for the people of the region, particularly the immigrants coming from other countries. She looked to existing Catholic orders as a means of reaching these people, but found that none of the orders were willing to accept Catherine's radical ideas, such as her refusal to wear the traditional nun's habit, and her strong belief in the individuality of members of orders. Catherine founded the Sisters of Service in 1922, and through this new order was able to make an impact on the lives of townspeople and students in prairie schools of the west. In this biography, Jeanne Beck reconstructs the extraordinary life of Sister Catherine Donnelly. The well-researched account is at once informative and inspiring a fitting tribute to the woman who believed "the spiritual life and the intellectual life have the same root deep in the unity of the intelligence."

Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2009, ISBN:9780199297276 
BELICH, James. Replenishing the Earth : The Settler Revolution and the Riseof the Anglo-World, 1783-1939. (Oxford) : Oxford University Press, (2009). First Edition. Pp [i]-x,(2),[1]-573,(7). Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt let tering to spine. “Why does much of the world speak English? Replenishing the Earth gives a new answer to that question, investigating the explosive settlement of the American West and its forgotten twin, the British West, comprising the settler dominions of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Between 1780 and 1930 the number of English-speakers rocketed from 12 million in 1780 to 200 million, and their wealth and power grew to match. Their secret was not racial, or cultural, or institutional superiority – as undoubtedly some of them liked to believe - but an unprecedented intersection of historical changes. The sudden rise of mass transfer across oceansand mountains, a revolutionary shift in attitudes to emigration, the emerg ence of a settler "boom mentality," and a late flowering of non-industrial technologies - wind, water, wood, and work animals - especially on settler frontiers, combined with the Industrial Revolution to transform settlement into something explosive. It was capable of creating great cities like Chicago and Melbourne, and correspondingly large societies and economies in a single generation. When the great settler booms busted, as they always did, a second pattern set in. Links between the new 'wests' and their metropoles, London and New York, actually tightened as rising tides of staple products flowed one way and ideas the other. Greater America and Greater Britain were re-integrated, bulking them out to become the superpowers of their day.The "Settler Revolution" was not exclusive to the Anglophone countries - A rgentina, Siberia, and Manchuria also experienced it. But it was the Anglophone settlers who managed to integrate frontier and metropolis most successfully, and it was this that gave them the impetus and the material power toprovide the world's leading super-powers for the last 200 years. This book will reshape understandings of American, British, and British dominion his tories in the long nineteenth century. It is a story with such crucial implications for the histories of settler societies, the homelands that spawnedthem, and the indigenous peoples who resisted them, that their full histor ies cannot be written without it.” - from the dj.

See Vaison p.5, NSIB 198.

Winthrop Pickard Bell (b. May 12, 1884, Halifax – d. April 4, 1965, Chester, Nova Scotia) Canadian scholar and historian.

Reprint of 1961 Edition with a new Introduction by L.D. McCann.

"Since its publication in 1961, The "Foreign Protestants" has earned acclaim as a minor classic in the writing of Nova Scotia's history. It investigates, in a thorough and comprehensive manner, the circumstances of some 2,700 Germans and others — the so-called Palatines—who migrated to Nova Scotia in the early 1750s. But it is more than just a reconstitution of the characteristics of these people. The study also examines, for example, colonial settlement schemes, the disputes over Acadian lands, the process of social adjustment in a New World setting, and the long-term political and economic development of the "foreign Protestants." Long out-of print, it is reissued by the Centre for Canadian Studies at Mount Allison University to emphasize the seminal importance of this pioneering study. " - from the jacket.

"This is a study of the settlers who, under British auspices, came to Nova Scotia from the continent of Europe between 1749 and 1752. The plans for the British colonial authorities fro further immigration from that source did not materialize, but the large majority of 'foreign Protestants' who arrived in those yfew years were settled by the government in a township of their own and constituted a distinctive population group. Their descendants have multiplied and many of them have scattered; but Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, still retains many distinctive accents and customs and some characteristic turns of thought and speech." - from the original edition's dj.
