An ex-MOuntie who spends his time as securitychief of a Toronto-based international airline, and his nights trying to f orget a past that won't stay buried. In Shuter's world, romance and violence are never far away -- and death can be part of the job. The daughter of apowerful politician goes missing from a package holiday in Jamaica, and Sh uter's boss orders her found. It seems a routine assignment: every winter Holidair flies tens of thousands of people to the Caribbean for sun, surf, and sex, and every winter a few decide to stay on and live the sweet life. But the search for Carol Malone turns sour from the start. Before Shuter haseven packed his bags for Montego Bay, there is a series of bizarre deaths at Jamaican resorts and Shuter's Toronto contact -- a Rastafarian and part-time dope dealer -- is found in an alley, hacked to pieces." - from the dustjacket.

The work of a group of researchers from Canada, Norway, and the United States, it examines the implications of common market integration, privatized resource management, and small business development policies for fishery-dependant communities in terms of long-term sustainability and participatory democracy. The book is brokeninto three sections: an examination of the economic and institutional hist ory of the fisheries in Norway and Atlantic Canada, a study of the regulatory regimes used in the fisheries of these two regions, and an analysis of reactions in three communities, two in Canada [Sambro, Nova Scotia and Fogo Island, Newfoundland] and one in Norway [Bugoynes], to the decline and collapse of fish stocks. Comparative, multidisciplinary, and multinational in approach, it is a major contribution to the literature on fishing regulations, the role of the state, and resource development in the North Atlantic." -from the dustjacket.

116 ARMSTRONG, Tammy Scare in the Crow.
Goose Lane, Fredericton, N.B., 2010, ISBN:9780864926272 
ARMSTRONG, Tammy. The Scare in the Crow. (Fredericton, N.B.) : Goose Lane, (2010). First Printing. Pp [1]-110,(2). 8vo, illustrated pale green card covers. A book of poetry. "The Scare in the Crow races across the back roads like a muscle car making a beer run. Then it pauses, in haunting contemplation of a walk through the woods. Armstrong's poems inhabit the fantasia of this world - in the peculiarities of taxidermy, crowds watching a house wash away in a spring flood, old tombstones cast over a riverbank, or rumours of a sighting of the extinct eastern panther. Gothic shadows of dead friends and strangers inhabit the lost cause of failing farms and industries, eroding communities, children dispersed, the names of distant cousins slippingthrough loose fingers. With blistering wit, Armstrong invites us to laugh at the zaniness of life. From moments of melancholy emerges an unflinching gaze at people who cling to life and livelihood the only way they know how.And always she senses the pulse of the natural world - beautiful, transfor mative, and populated with the perceptions of animal minds." - from the back cover. Tammy Armstrong grew up in the border town of St. Stephen, New Brunswick, and now lives in Fredericton. Very good. 10.00
