5 ABENDSCHÖN, Simone Growing into Politics : Contexts and Timing of Political Socialisation

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.

6 ABRAHAM, Richard KERENSKY, Alexander Alexander Kerensky : The First Love of the Revolution. First British Edition in dustjacket
Sidgwick & Jackson, London, 1987, ISBN:0283994762 
ABRAHAM, Richard. Alexander Kerensky : The First Love of the Revolution. London : Sidgwick & Jackson, (1987). First British Edition. Pp (8),[ix]-xii,(3),[1]-503,(1), frontispiece + 32 pp plates. Index. 8vo, yellow cloth, giltlettering to black panel on spine. "In July 1917, Alexander Kerensky succe eded Prince Lvov as premier of Russia's Provisional Government, which was estabJished after the February overthrow of Czar Nicholas II. Kerenskv was himself deposed later that year by Lenin's Bolsheviks, causing him fo flee to Paris where he became an active propagandist against the Soviet regime. In 1940, he emigrated to the United States, where he lived until his death in 1970. In this innovative biography, Richard Abraham offers a comprehensive analysis of Kerensky's politics and an intimate portrait of the man and his turbulent times. Tracing the course of Kerensky's career from obscure political trials to open, conspiraionai organizations, leadership, and finally exile, Abraham demonstrates that Kerensky was the representative and charismatic leader of the rank-and-file of the Russian intelligentsia. His prominence in 1917 was therefore no accident, but the fruit of his unremitting commitment to revolution, and of efforts which almost triggered a revolution as early as 1915. The author confirms that Kerensky played a crucial rolein forestalling any rallying of the Right before the October Revolution an d reexamines the accusation that he and his Socialist Revolutionary comrades were responsible for the horrors of the civil war. Kerenskv's belief in parliamentary democracy is evident in Abraham's concise account of his fiftyyears in exile. " (from the dj). Contents : Preface. 1. Inspector Kerensky 's Career. 2. A Hesitant Hero. 3. Against the Tide. 4. Tribune of the People. 5. Terribly Little Time. 6. Citizen Brutus. 7. Fires of Hope and Aspiration. 8. The People's Minister of Justice. 9.

Here are 12 jackpine sonnets by the manwho named the form: Milton Acorn, the Peoples' Poet. And 12 more by James Deahl, who learned the foprm from Acorn and brings his own voice to it. These 24 poems touch on love, politics, history: the spirit of nations, places, people and gods. They belong to a Canadian tradition which stretches backto Lampman and forward to a new generation of poets." -from the rear cover . Very good.

17 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.

AGUIRRE, Robert W. The Panama Canal. Leiden / Boston : Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2010. First Edition. Pp. (4),[v]-xii,(2),[1]-293,(5). Maps, tables, illustrations in text. 8vo, green paper-covered boards, light green lettering to front & spine. Volume 15 in the International Straits of the World series. "The relationship between straits and interoceanic canals has always been ambiguous. Unlike straits, interoceanic canals are neither natural nor subject to a universal legal regime like the Law of the Sea. However, straits and interoceanic canals share comparable historical experiences due to their geographic similarities. Suspending interest in a purely legal analysis, The Panama Canal lets logic yield to experience and considers the Panama Canal as an 'artificial strait'. The volume recasts the dynamic events that have changed the Panama Canal in the context of three interactive elements: environments, flows, and territoriality. Cleverly deciphering from history how changes in one element led to changes in another, The Panama Canal suggests a considerably new perspective for viewing the canal's past and future." - from rear cover.
