Large 8vo, white cardcovers. "There is a healthy development in the human service professions these days. At community clinics, private practices, and universities around the country mental health professionals and service providers are working with increased awareness of the toxic effects of social inequities in the lives of people they aim to help. Quietly, by acting out their beliefs on justice and equality, clinicians are redressing the balance between professing our craftas clinicians and professing our humanity as citizens. Advancing Social Ju stice Through Clinical Practice is a comprehensive volume that bridges the gap between the psychosocial realities of clients and the dominant clinicalpractices. It offers an array of conceptual and practical innovations to a ddress both individual suffering and social inequities fueling this suffering. This is an empowering tool and a must read for mental health professionals. The accessible writing style also makes it ideal for teachers and students in the field. The book opens with a discussion of the historical, ethical, and experiential foundations for the development of social justice-based practice. Parts II and III present conceptual frameworks, strategies, and techniques used by social justice oriented practitioners. The final section discusses various ways to develop the skills and competencies required of mental health professionals aspiring to be both agents of individual and social transformation. Filled with hope, critical analysis, and uncommon clinical wisdom, this is a book like no other in the field." Foreword; Preface; Part I.: Steps Toward A Social Justice Therapeutic Practice. 1.

New light is shed on the dispute over strategy which brought High Commissioner Sir Alan Cunningham and CIGS Field-Marshal Montgomery to a political showdown that the latter won with disasterous consequences for the campaign. That the British defeat did not end the region's political violence,which instead has escalated into a problem of global proportions miakes th is volume both timely and tragically relevant. — from the dj.

CLARK, Joan. The Victory of Geraldine Gull. Toronto: Macmillan Canada, (1988). First Printing. Pp (8),[1]-287,(1). 8vo, blue cloth with silver lettering to spine. "The struggle for survival among a community of Swampy Cree onthe shore of Hudson Bay provides Joan Clark with the theme for this compas sionate and complex novel.The native families of Niska live onthe edge not only of the vast continent, but also of the conflicting values and traditions of their elders and of white 'civilization'. When Willa, a white art teacher from 'outside' arrives in Niska for the summer, she enters a world rendered opaque to her by its indifference. Though the Indians generally disregard her, she attracts the rage of Geraldine Gull, an Ojibwa woman whose violent unpredictability and contempt for the Cree lead her to acts of terrorism against them. Geraldine is an avenging angel, her one goal to see the works of her son, the painter Alexander Bear, receive recognition. Behind the struggles of Geraldine and the Cree lies the ever-present threat of a devastating flood that will destroy Niska if it is not moved to higher ground.While the tribal leaders attempt to persuade the people to uproot themselv es from the land of their forefathers, and to cut the cord of dependence that ties them to the Hudson's Bay store and to the Roman Catholic church, Geraldine sees an opportunity to further her plan and to use Willa as her instrument. Through Geraldine, Willa is drawn deeper into the conflicts that divide Niska. Although she knows that she can never gain acceptance from theIndians, she leaves with an admiration for their determination to survive on the hostile frontier." - from the dj.

In the spring of 1866, a thousand Fenians massed along the southwest border of New Brunswick.

GARDNER, John. Scorpius. New York : G. P. Putnam's Sons, (1988). First American Printing. Pp (12),13-319,(1). 8vo, blue cloth spine, green paper-covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. John Edmund Gardner (b. November 20, 1926, Seaton Delaval, Northumberland, England – d. August 3, 2007, Basingstoke, Hampshire). "The world's greatest secret agent returns, as 007 faces themost bizarre and sinister arc villain in his career. — A dead aristocrat. A mysterious unknown credit card. A religious cult with a penchant for violence. All in all, it's a twisted, devilish business, worthy of Scotland Yard--not a project for the British Secret Service's foremost asset, James Bond. At first it's a routine investigation into the death of a girl hauled out of the Thames, but the investigation becomes more than just routine when the corpse turns out to be the murdered daughter of a baronet and the only clue seems to be a credit card unknown to both the Royal Treasury and the IRS. Further revelations follow. The deceased was a drug addict--until she saw the light via a religious sect called the Meek Ones, whose guru is internationally shady, enigmatic Father Valentine. Since the CIA is already investigating Valentine, the Secret Service is assigned the case. Enter James Bond, who immediately makes several startling discoveries. Anther Meek One is discovered in possession of the same mysterious credit card. Father Valentine himself is suspected of diverting cult funds to buy arms for radical groups all over Europe. Most damning of all, he has links to the mega-czar of global vice and terrorism, Vladimir Scorpius. From then on, the action and danger soar to an all-time high. From daring escapes and diabolically clever technological duplicities, through red errings, ambushes, kidnappings, and torture, Bond races - with the beautiful American Harriet Horner at hisside - to the ultimate confrontation: a spectacular battle royal with the deadliest evil genius to ever threaten the future of England and the world.With Scorpius both John Gardner and James Bond are at the top of their for m Here, indeed, is exhilarating adventure in the true Ian Fleming tradition."

John Edmund Gardner (b. November 20, 1926, Seaton Delaval, Northumberland, England – d. August 3, 2007, Basingstoke, Hampshire). "Special Branch are not usually interested in dead bodies found floating in the Thames, except when the corpse is a young girl with an impeccable background when they become very interested indeed. So interested thatthey call on the legendary M, head of Secret Service. In turn M sends for Commander James Bond, for the body has yielded two things of interest. First, the only telephone number in her diary is that of Bond; second, she is carrying a credit card which has never been heard of before on either side of the Atlantic. Soon, Bond finds himself caught up in an unusual mixture ofintrigue and mayhem involving a strange, but deadly, quasi-religious sect known as the Society of the Meek Ones; their leader the soft-spoken Father Valentine, who has links with the shadowy Vladimir Scorpius, nicknamed ‘TheKing of Terror’ because he is the largest arms dealer to various terrorist factions worldwide. Naturally, with evil comes the good – the society girl , the Hon. Trilby Shrivenham, and an American IRS undercover agent, the gorgeous Harriet Horner. Good girls? Only time will tell. Intrigue builds on intrigue and, as ever, Bond soon finds himself in the middle of a deadly game of terrorism and arms supplies. A game in which he is pitted against one of the most ruthless and sinister villains that Bond has ever encountered. After six best-selling Bond books John Gardner’s seventh is set to outsell tham all." (from the dj). Contents : 1. The Longest Mile. 2. The Floater. 3. The Crossroads Incident. 4. Avante Carte. 5.

18 GOYDER, John. Technology and Society : A Canadian Perspective.
Broadview Press, Peterborough, Ontario, 2004, ISBN:1551115530 
GOYDER, John. Technology and Society : A Canadian Perspective. Second Edition. (Peterborough, Ontario) : Broadview Press, (2004). Pp [1]-270. Illustrated. Index. 8vo, white card covers. "Since the publication of the first edition of Technology and Society: A Canadian Perspective in 1997, awareness of the pervasive effects of new and emerging technologies on our lives is, if anything, even more pronounced. New and emerging technologies in everything from health care to communication and the Internet hold enormous promise. However, the more ominous consequences of technology are also very much with us- from environmental degradation to uncertainty in the workplace in apost "dot com" economy to terrorism and warfare. Technology and Society, s econd edition, continues the rich tradition of Canadian writing on technology found in the work of Harold Innis, Marshall McLuhan, George Grant, Ursula Franklin, and others. Like the first edition, the book begins and ends with an attempt to understand Grant's insistence that technology is a "fate,"connected, in the anthropological sense, with the evolution of societies. In between, the book examines the social and historical foundation for the development and diffusion of technology in the Canadian context. The first three chapters define the phenomenon of technology by classifying the vast array of tools and techniques. They offer a conceptual scheme for understanding the interrelationship between society and technology and for the diffusion of technologies. Subsequent chapters shift to looking at the consequences of technology. The linkage between technology and economic development is explored, as is the significance of a technocratic value system. The relationship between work and technology?the significance of "automation," of a "branch plant" economy, "R&D," and communication?is examined. The final chapters consider new leading technologies such as artificial intelligence and biotechnology, as well as public attitudes towards technology." - from the back cover. Very good. 30.00
