"The m enace of triumphant Nazism and fascism across Europe in the 1930s drove theleft into unity with liberals, in order to make common cause against the e xtremist right. Popular Front initiatives were a significant attempt to barthe way to further fascist victories. This collection of essays focuses sp ecifically on France and Spain as the only two countries where Popular Front coalitions won political power through the ballot box. From a comparativeperspective the volume gathers leading experts on the 1930s who travel bey ond the territory of orthodox political history. Taken together, their contributions provide the first multi-dimensional approach to the Front phenomenon.

13 ARTHUR, Eric and Thomas RITCHIE Iron : Cast and Wrought Iron in Canada from the Seventeenth Century to the Present. First Edition in dustjacket
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1982, ISBN:0802024297 
ARTHUR, Eric and Thomas RITCHIE. Iron : Cast and Wrought Iron in Canada from the Seventeenth Century to the Present. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (1982). First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]- xiv,[1]-242. Double column. Illustrated. 4to, dark grey cloth, black lettering to front and spine. "This volume is a tribute to the ironmasters - men of persistence, determination, and inventiveness, who have been little recorded or recognized; to the craftsmen whose high standards of design and fabrication allowed beauty to touchwhat could have been mundane - kettles, pots, sugar tongs, and above all, the stoves for which Canada is famous; and finally, to the worker in wrought iron whose creations reached a pinnacle in the magnificent fence enclosing the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. With 250 black and white illustrations of everything from steamships to stoves, trains to trivets, and spits to spittoons, this book provides an introduction to iron: its preparation, forming, application, and decorative properties and uses. The focus is primarily Canadian. As Eric Arthur explains: 'To some degree, to study iron in Canada is to follow the gradual sophistication of Canadian culture. Ironworking began in Canada, as elsewhere, to a large extent to produce implements ofthe utmost utility, yet even in these the creative abilities of the ironwo rker are visible. As Canadian society developed, ironworking gradually began to fulfil more sophisticated desires. Finally, the age of industrialization was based on the ability of the iron- worker to produce rails and locomotives, ships and machines - in short all the things that made the growth ofCanada possible.' " - from the dj. Contents: 1. The technology of iron; 2. The development of the Canadian iron and steel industry; 3. The hammer and the anvil: wrought iron (and The Lozeau crosses); 4. The engineer and the ironmaster: cast and rolled iron; 5. Fences, railings, and palings, iron grilles and gratings, hinges and hardware, handrails and stairs, doors, gates, portals and other grand entrances (with photo essay of Frederick Flatman and The Parliament Buildings in Ottawa); 6. Pots and pans, trivets and tongs, cauldrons and kettles, spits and spittoons, irons and andirons, and muchelse; 7. Initiative, inventiveness, and daring in nineteenth-century archi tecture cast in iron (with a photo essay on the Hamilton Pump-House); 8. Stoves for all seasons: for heating and cooking -- ornate for the opulent, modest for the majority -- firebacks and fireplaces, mantels and other iron accoutrements; 9. Iron ships and iron horses: the pioneer developers. With notes, bibliography and index. Very good in dustjacket. 50.00

"When Juanita McKenzie came home in 1998 to find two men in white environmental suits posting a sign that read "Human Health Hazard" behind her neighbor's house, she knew that something was terribly wrong. For the people of Frederick Street in Sydney, Nova Scotia, the past was about to come crashing into the present. They wereliving next door to one of the worst toxic waste sites in North America. H ow did an estuary that was once a pristine body of water become a cesspool containing 700,000 tons of toxic sludge, a site 35 times worse than the infamous Love Canal?

"How did an estuary that was once a pristine body of water become a cesspool containing 700,00 tons of toxic sludge, a site 35 times worse than the infamous Love Canal? 'Frederick Street' tells for the first time the compelling story of a once-beautiful area where 100 years ago the Mi'kmaq lived and fished and early settlers enjoyed the bounty of the ocean.

Fully researched and well-documented with the real-life stories of the native Mi'kmaq, the steelworkers and their families, and concerned citizens of this Cape Breton community, 'Frederick Street' sends out a passionate message to all Canadians whose own communities face the danger of toxic waste and environmental destruction." - from rear.
