LE GRAND, Julian. Motivation, Agency, and Public Policy : Of Knights and Knaves, Pawns and Queens. (Oxford) : Oxford University Press, (2003). Second Printing. Pp [i]-xi,(2),[1]-191,(3). Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “Can we rely on the altruism of professionals or the public service ethos to deliver good quality health and education services? And how should patients, parents, and pupils behave - as grateful recipients or active consumers? This book provides new answers to these questions - a milestone in the analysis and development of public policy, from one of the leading thinkers in the field. It provides a new perspective on policy design, emphasising the importance of analysing the motivation of professionals and others who work within the public sector, and both their and public service beneficiaries' capacity for agency or independent action. It argues that the conventional assumption that public sector professionals are public-spirited altruists or 'knights' is misplaced; but so is the alternative that they are all, in David Hume's terminology, 'knaves' or self-interested egoists. We also must not assume that individual citizens are passive recipients of public services (pawns); but nor can they be untrammelled sovereigns withunrestricted choices over services and resources (queens). Instead, polici es must be designed so as to give the proper balance of motivation and agency. The book illustrates how this can be done by detailed empirical examination of recent policies in health services, education, social security and taxation. It puts forwards proposals for policy reform, several of which either originated with the author or with which he has been closely associated: universal capital or 'demogrants', discriminating vouchers, matching grants for pensions and for long-term care, and hypothecated taxes." - from the dj.

(LOCKERBY, Elizabeth N.). The Wild Brier : or, Lays by an Untaught Minstrel. Charlottetown, P.E.I.: Geo. Bremner, “Excelsior Printing Office,” Prince Street, 1866. First Edition. Pp (2),[i]-ix(sic x),[1]-196,(2). 8vo, blue pressed cloth, gilt lettering to spine and gilt floral design to front board.“LOCKERBY, ELIZABETH NEWELL (Bacon), poetess; b. 12 Sept. 1831 at Cavendis h, Queens County, P.E.I., sixth of 12 children of John Lockerby and Margaret Forbes; m. in 1874 Hiram Bacon; d. 6 Dec. 1884 at Indianapolis, Ind. Elizabeth Newell Lockerby’s parents had immigrated from Scotland to the Miramichi River in New Brunswick in 1820 before settling the following year in Cavendish. There her father farmed and worked as a blacksmith. In 1862 John Lockerby retired from farming and moved to Charlottetown, accompanied by his wife and his 31-year-old daughter. Elizabeth, who had been writing poetry since her early teens, soon began to pursue a life of her own. In 1863 she attended the Provincial Training Seminary at Truro, N.S., and from 1864 to 1867 travelled frequently to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to visit friends and relatives. In 1866 Elizabeth Lockerby published, probably at her own expense, a volume of poetry which evidence suggests she then sold door-to-door in Charlottetown. She seems to have nurtured hopes of pursuing a career as a professional writer and to this end went to New York City in 1868, but her meagre talents and lack of literary connections and intellectual sophistication soon proved to her that she would not succeed. The following year she went to Portland, Maine, to study the life insurance business. This career was also short-lived, for in 1872 she was in Chatham, N.B., assisting her brother in his mercantile business. [...] Elizabeth Lockerby’s reputation as a writer rests on two publications: a book of poems, The wild brier: or, lays by an untaught minstrel (Charlottetown, 1866), and a collection of poetry and prose, Oak leaves (Halifax, 1869). The first volume was reprinted in Indianapolis in 1881 and 1883, and the second was also reprinted therein 1882, all at her own expense. She may also have written some pieces for magazines and journals. The prose pieces in Oak leaves contain sentimental tragedy, lush description, or speculations on the marvel of human creation . Of her known works, the poems are most interesting. The early poems, written between 1843 and 1852, are heavily sentimental in tone and mood, with amarked tendency toward melodramatic description and narration of events. H er best known piece, “George and Amanda,” written during this period, dealswith the death of a young New England sailor in the terrible hurricane of October 1851 which virtually destroyed an American fishing fleet on the north shore of Prince Edward Island. It has some effective descriptive passages." - from the Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online.

138 MARTIN, John R. Fluorspar Mines of Newfoundland : Their History and the Epidemic of Radiation Lung Cancer

MARTIN, John R. The Fluorspar Mines of Newfoundland : Their History and theEpidemic of Radiation Lung Cancer. Montreal & Kingston : McGill-Queen's Un iversity Press, (2012). First Printing. Pp (8),[ix]-xvii, (10),[3]-175,(3).Map and some photos in text. 8vo, photo-illustrated cardcovers. No. 38 in the McGill-Queens / Associated Medical Services Studies in the History of Medicine, Health, and Society series. In the early 1930s a rich deposit of fluorspar, a mineral used in the production of aluminum, steel, non-stick coatings, and fire retardant clothing, was discovered on the southern tip of Newfoundland. Two mines were established and by mid-century were major employers in St Lawrence. In the 1950s physician Cyril Walsh noticed a marked increase in cases of cancer in the miners. By the late 1960s nearly twenty percent of St Lawrence households had lost a family member to lung cancer. John Martin tells the history of Newfoundland's fluorspar mines from their founding to the last shipment of fluorspar in 1990 and declaration of bankruptcy a year later. He focuses on the health hazards experienced by the miners, and how the mining companies, workers, governments, and health servicescame to terms with the unfolding human tragedy. He also covers such matter s as the improvement of methods for dust quantification and radiation surveillance in the mines, battles for compensation, and the influence of the StLawrence case on the development of labour law in the province. Martin's c ompelling history takes on new significance as the mines are set to reopen with the support of the provincial government and renewed confidence in thecommunity due to modern ventilation technology and vigilant monitoring.
