In recognitio n of their outstanding contribution to Canadian history both the Oxbow and the Augustine Mound sites have been declared National Historic Sites by theHistoric Sites and Monuments Board of Canada. Joseph Augustine, the Red Ba nk resident who first recognized the cultural and historical value of thesesites, has been presented with New Brunswick's distinguished Award for Her itage.

Dundurn Press, Toronto & Oxford, 1992, ISBN:1550021842 
ALLEN, Robert S. His Majesty's Indian Allies : British Indian Policy in TheDefence of Canada, 1774-1815. Toronto & Oxford : Dundurn Press, 1992. Firs t Paperback Printing. Pp. (6),7-294,(2), including plates. Illustrated. 8vo, art illustrated green card covers with white lettering to front cover andspine. "Today the First Nations are demanding a new recognition of their p lace in Canada. For them this demand is a renewal of the historical relationship between themselves and the European newcomers, based on mutual respect and a separate but equal status in which neither side would interfere wihthe integrity of the other's culture, language, law, or religious and poli tical systems. 'His Majesty's Indian Allies' is a study of the roots of this relationship and an examination of British Indian policy in North Americafrom the time of the American Revolution to the end of the War of 1812, wi th particular focus on Canada. Remarkably little recognition has been givenot the vital military role of native people in the defence of Canada. More precisely, the long relationship between native people and thje crown in C anada, based on formal alliances, was instrumental in preserving and protecting the integrity of the territories that became Canada. The cohesive vehicle for implementing policy directives was the British Indian Department, the forerunner of the present Department of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada. Although plagued by a continuous struggle over land issues and native sovereignty, an enduring and symbiotic relationship evolved between the native people and the British Crown in Canada that was rooted in the mutual need and desire for protection and survival. In his conclusion, Allen argues that the historic chain of friendship between native people and the crown has been recast, but not particularly altered, in the contemporary world of government-native relations. In detailing and assessing these military alliances during the formative and critical years in the development of the nations in North America, Robert Allen has brought refreshing new insights intothe field of native history." - from rear.

ANDERSON, Dawn, and Barrie ANDERSON. Manufacturing Guilt : Wrongful Convictions in Canada. Second Edition. Halifax & Winnipeg : Fernwood Publishing, (2009). Pp (5),6-176. 8vo [150 x 227 mm], photo-illustrated black cardcovers, lettered in cream. Barrie Anderson retired from the Department of Sociology at the University of Regina in 1996, and passed away in February of 2007. Dawn Anderson was a professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Regina. "Manufacturing Guilt, 2nd edition, updates the cases presented in the first edition and includes two new chapters: one concerning thecase of James Driskell and another regarding Dr. Charles Smith, whose role in forensic pathology evidence led to several wrongful convictions. In thi s new edition, the authors demonstrate that the same factors at play in thecriminalization of the powerless and marginalized are found in cases of wr ongful conviction. Contrary to popular belief, wrongful convictions are notdue simply to “unintended errors,” but rather are too often the result of the deliberate actions of those working in the criminal justice system. Using Canadian cases of miscarriages of justice, the authors argue that understanding wrongful convictions and how to prevent them is incomplete outside the broader societal context in which they occur." (from the back cover). Contents : 1. Marginalization and Wrongful Convictions. 2. The Case of Donald Marshall (pp.26-44). 3. The Case of David Milgaard. 4. The Case of Wilbert Coffin. 5.
