121 BELANGER, Stephanie A.H., (ed. ) DAVIS, Karen D., (ed. ) Transforming Traditions : Women, Leadership & the Canadian Navy, 1942-2010.Paperback Edition.
Canadian Defence Academy Press, Kingston, Ontario, 2010, ISBN:9781100149394 
BELANGER, Stephanie A.H. and Karen D. DAVIS, (eds.). Transforming Traditions : Women, Leadership & the Canadian Navy, 1942-2010. Editors: Stéphanie A.H. Bélanger and Karen D. Davis. [Foreword by Vice-Admiral P. Dean McFadden]. (Kingston, ON): Canadian Defence Academy Press, (2010). First Paperback Printing. Pp. (2),i-xix,(1),1-204,(2). 8vo, illustrated white and grey card covers with gold and black lettering to front cover, white lettering to black spine. "As the Canadian navy celebrates its centennial, 'Transforming Traditions: Women, Leadership and the Canadian Navy, 1942-2010', provides a place marker for the full inclusion of women within naval history and culture in Canada. Today, many agree that a sailor is a sailor regardless of gender. While this is no doubt true in many respects, it is also true that the navy did not become the organization that it is today without some challenge and cultural growing pain. The curent status of women in the Canadian Forces' sea environment is testimony to the spirit of those women and men who served before them and, as such, the experiences shared inside this cover celebrate and commemorate those who have facilitated the contributions of women. This voume brings together a collection of leadership experiences and perspectives with a selection of research related to women in the navy. Forthe first time, the voices of Canadian navy women spanning 1942 to 2010 ar e presented within one volume. By representing this scope of experience within one integrated collection, the editors have conveyed an important message -- women have been an integral part of the navy for many years, and are committed to being a part of its future." - from the rear cover.

"The post-Expo era of Canadian architecture has produced works of international importance which have been recognized in European, Japanese and American periodicals.

Through an examination of the National Gallery competition of 1976-77, the authors identify the mainstream concerns of Canadian architecture. Then, concentrating on major cities from coast to coast, they look at projects embodying alternative movements that are suggestive of possible future directions, projects such as: Corridart in Montreal; Robson Square in Vancouver; the Pavilion '70 ski chalet in St. Sauveur, Quebec; Toronto's Eaton Centre; Winnipeg's St .

After having spent some time working in the textile industry in Boston, he returned to Montreal to study for his advanced degree. He spends from midnight until eight in the mronign sweeping streetcars at the Hochelaga shops of the Metropolitan Transport Copmany. Jules is in a sense a man of two lives. His leisure time is spent with his student friends while his working hours are shared with 'Bouboule', Bill, Charlot and other sweepers. Jules aims at writing a novel in which he hopes to bring to life the diversity of milieus with which he comes into contact. These include those ofthe derelict, the homosexual and the prostitute, which give 'The Brawl' a naturalist tone. Jules fails to achieve his intellectual purpose and is forced to abandon the writing of the great French-Canadian novel and to reconcile himself to his proletarian life. Lebeuf's Fate is interwoven with that of Weston who attempts a thesis on the French-Canadians, tears it up and returns to Missouri to become a journalist; and of Sillery who, defeated by his homosexual obsessions, goes to Africa to study anthropology." - from thedustjacket.

Pp (6),1-98 . 8vo, white cloth, purple lettering to spine. "Hervé Jodoin, the dégagé, down-at-heel hero and narrator of this charmingly cynical French-Canadian novel, arrives in Saint Joachim to work in its sole bookshop. The proprietor, M. Léon Chicoine, is outwardly respectable, but in secret he's a champion of free thought and liberty. His most cherishedwares are not for every eye.. . . Hervé at first arranges his life tranqui lly enough, but before long - more for the sake of peace than from any biological urge - he becomes entangled in a fatiguing affair with his landlady.Worse, the confiidence his boss places in him as a fellow - libertarian le ads to an alarming row which involves M. le Curé and everyone else in SaintJoachim. A book by a subversive author named Voltaire is the occasion of t he crisis. This delightfully funny satire on life in the province of Quebeccould not, at first, find a French-Canadian publisher. In the end, having appeared in Paris, it was chosen by the Grand Jury des Lettres of Montreal as one of the ten best French-Canadian novels published between 1945 and i960. English-speaking Canadians may now discover this new and important Canadian novelist for themselves." - from the dj. Gérard Bessette (b. February 25, 1920, Sainte-Anne-de-Sabrevois, Quebec - d.
