6 APOSTLE, Richard BARRETT, Gene Emptying Their Nets : Small Capital and Rural industrialization in the NovaScotia Fishing Industry
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1992, ISBN:0802068316 
APOSTLE, Richard and Gene BARRETT. Emptying Their Nets : Small Capital and Rural industrialization in the Nova Scotia Fishing Industry. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (1992). Pp (8),[ix]xvii,(5),[3]-396. Tables. Maps.8vo, card covers. Also with contributions by Pauline Barber, Kevin J. Barr ett, Anthony Davis, Marie Giasson, Leonard Kasdan, Leigh Mazany and Lawrence Willett. "The day of the independent fisher is done, according to conventional wisdom. There is a widespread conviction today that the survival of small capital in the fishing industry is anachronistic or, at best, exceptjonal, and therefore relatively unimportant in the grander scheme of things. Richard Apostle and Gene Barrett take a different view. They argue that thedifferentiated structure of the industry, while rooted in a number of reso urce-centred conditions, stems from a range of socioeconomic factors which the fishery shares with other industrial sectors. It is the overall constellation of events and forces that continually regenerates a. structural basis for small capital and frustrates the centralization ana concentration of capital. They suggest mat a variety of types ot small capital must bc distinguished, each with particular internal structures - for example, relationsto the harvesting sector, large-scale capital, and the market. While the c oastal zone fishery is vital to the small capital processing sector, family-based organization, intermediate technology, surplus labour, and communitystructures are central to this structure as well. They argue as well that a populist ideology rooted in individualism and free enterprise emanates from this structure and represents its major weak point in terms of concertedaction during times of crisis. The culmination of a six-year research proj ect, this work incorporates primary research data collected through surveysof plant managers, fishers, plant workers and brokers, four community stud ies, and financial analysis of fish plant operations. It identifies variousstrands and patterns that make up the fabric of rural community, revealing the complex interconnections among household, class, gender, and community and the structuring of economy and society.."

18 BIONDICH, Mark RADIC, Stjepan Stjepan Radic, the Croat Peasant Party, and the Politics of Mass Mobilization, 1904-1928
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, Buffalo, London , 2000, ISBN:0802082947 
BIONDICH, Mark. Stjepan Radic , the Croat Peasant Party, and the Politics of Mass Mobilization, 1904-1928. Toronto, Buffalo, London : University of Toronto Press, (2000). First Edition. Pp. (6),vii-xi,(5),[3]-344,(2). 8vo, illustrated red card covers. "The Croatian nationalist leader Stjepan Radic is generally considered one of the most important politicians in Yugoslavianhistory. In 1904, Radic mobilized the peasantry to form a populist movemen t that resulted in the Croat Peasant Party. The CPP fought to reform Yugoslavia's centralist state system and to amend the structural flaws of the parliamentary system. His assassination in 1928 marked the end of the country's short democratic experience; a royalist dictatorship immediately followed. Croatia failed to achieve statehood or autonomy within Yugoslavia, but Radic's indisputably dominant role in the formation of Croatian national consciousness is widely celebrated among Croatians today. The story of this charismatic, ideologically eclectic politician and his role in nation-buildingmakes for fascinating reading. In North America, with our increasing invol vement in the political conflicts of the former Yugoslavia, we cannot afford to remain ignorant of the major historical forces involved in the early Serb / Croat struggles for power and identity. This is an essential work forpolitical scientists and other specialists in the area." - p.[i]. Contents : 1. Introduction and Historical Background; 2. Stjepan Radic: The Formative Years, 1871-1904; 3. Agrarianism and National Integration: The Ideology and Organization of Croat Peasantism; 4.

The Neutral Croat Peasant Republic and the Politics of National Mobilization, 1918-1925; 7. Stjepan Radicand the Croat Question, 1925-1928; 8. Conclusion. Very good. 15.00

19 BRAND, Dionne BHAGGIYADATTA, Sri Rivers Have Sources, Trees Have Roots : Speaking of Racism.
Cross Cultural Communication Centre, Toronto, 1986, ISBN:0969106068 
BRAND, Dionne, and Krisantha Sri BHAGGIYADATTA. Rivers Have Sources, Trees Have Roots : Speaking of Racism. Toronto : Cross Cultural Communication Centre, (1986). Pp (5),i-iii,1-182. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated black card covers. Contents : 1. The Culture of Everyday. 2. Childhood. 3. Work. 4. Rivers Have Sources, Trees Have Roots. 5. Continuing the Fight. Dionne Brand (born 1953), a Caribbean-born Canadian poet, novelist, essayist and documentarian. She was named Toronto’s third Poet Laureate in September 2009. “In Rivers Have Sources, Trees Have Roots (1986) Brand and co-author Krisantha Sri Bhaggiyadatta interviewed a hundred people from the Canadian Native, Black, Chinese, and South Asian communities about their perspectives of racismand how it has impacted their lives. From these stories and recollections of childhood to workplace experiences, the authors critiqued the existence and commonality of racism, disparities and resistance. They argue that two themes exist where racism prevails in the lives of the interviewees and these themes are through "the culture of racism" and through the structural and institutional ways. Consequently, economic hardship, lack of employment and career choices and opportunities are some of the experiences identified by the minority, ethnic groups and immigrants. Brand recognizes that there are also different forms of struggles and visions to combat racism. This book attempts to give each individual a voice, an opportunity to speak about their personal and immigration stories as part of a historical validation and as part of a third in a series of anti-racism literature. Women and men spoke of their anger, resentments, and complaints of racial tensions of abuse, isolation, staring, name calling and being treated as different and inferior. Brand addresses how racism is used as a powerful tool to censor oppositional voices and she opposes the media report that racism occurs in isolated cases or unusual crisis.” - wikipedia.
