ALEXIS, André. Childhood. (Toronto): McClelland and Stewart, (1998). First Printing. Pp. (12),3-265,(5). 8vo, photo-illustrated beige and black card covers, with French flaps. Winner of the Chapters First Novel Award and the Trillium Prize. "Childhood is André's Alexei's beeatifully ceafted début novel. It is a story about love, about memory - and forgiveness -about the persistence, the potency of the past. Set in a Southern Ontario town close tothe U.S. border in the '50s and '60s, and in Ottawa in the years that foll ow, the story is narrated by Thomas MacMillan. Through his clear-eyed vision and his unsentimental ordering of events, we meet a cast of brilliantly drawn characters. Among them are: Edna MacMillan, Thomas's volatile, unpredictable Trinidadian grandmother; and Katarina, the mother, who left him at birth, and ten years later, in the company of the sinister Mr. Mataf, swoopshim up and takes him from Petrolia. Soon after, we meet the unforgettable Henry Wing, a Black man with Chinese blood, a gentle conjuror who lives in faded Victorian splendour, and whose life work as a self-sttyled scientist is collecting esoteric facts of the natural world." - from front flap. Verygood. Signed, without inscription, by the author on title page. 30.00

Triggs, pp 105-135). Abstract : "Factors influencing the spatial arrangement of buildings at the Royal Navy establishment at Penetanguishene on Lake Huron are discussed. Excavation at the naval hospital at this site provides new insight into the residential movements of the various social groups at the base. Analysis of stratigraphy and artifacts recoveredfrom the hospital suggests that the assistant naval surgeon and his wife, military officers, and aboriginal people resided in the structure at various times over a 17-year period. Contemporary attitudes toward social and economic status, service rank/rating, and aboriginal people are explored within the context of the archaeological and documentary evidence to explain changes in residential patterning through time."

28 ALSON, Sandra, (ed.) MacKENZIE, William Ord BLACKSTOCK, Cicely , (ed.) Another World : William Ord Mackenzie’s Sojourn in the Canadas, 1839 - 1843
2015, 
ALSON, Sandra and Cicely BLACKSTOCK, (eds.). ‘Another World’ : William Ord Mackenzie’s Sojourn in the Canadas, 1839 - 1843. Toronto : The Champlain Society, 2015. Pp (14),[xv]-lvi,(13),14-645,(9). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine, blind-stamped Champlain Society sealon front board. "William Ord Mackenzie, a recently graduated British army surgeon, describes for his friends and family back home his life in his first posting to ‘another world’: the Canadas, in the period just after the Rebellions. Opinionated, frank, sometimes arrogant and prejudiced, but alwayscurious, Mackenzie details for his readers the social and political affair s of the colonies over five years. He serves in the major cities ? Toronto,Kingston, Montreal and Quebec? and witnesses cultural events, social affai rs, sports, and theatrical performances. He is also posted to smaller garrisons ? Rivière-du-Loup, Chambly and the frontier post of Fort Ingall near the American border, and writes, sometimes despairingly, about their conditions. As a well-connected Scot, Mackenzie has entrée into the highest society of the colony, dining with lieutenant-governors, prominent businessmen, writers and politicians, but he also finds himself in the homes of ordinary Canadians in rural settings, enjoying the dances, weddings, sleighing and snowshoeing that helped to alleviate the boredom of service in a peacetime army. Politics, food, natural history, geography, the weather, local gossip and pretty girls all form part of his journals, as does a detailed account of his reading, in newspapers, journals and books. Illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings and detailed maps and sketches of cities and army posts, thislittle-known journal makes a remarkable contribution to our understanding of a young country ? Canada in embryo following a time of grave troubles. It explores a place slowly and painfully healing from the conflict and divisions brought by rebellion but preparing to take the first shaky and uncertain steps towards a truly united nation. Contents : Ilustrations and Maps; Preface and Acknowledgments; Introduction; Textual Note; Journals; [Journal,Volume I]; Description of a Sojourn in Another World, Volume II, Toronto, U.C. 1839; Journal of a Sojourn in Another World!

Rights formerly guaranteed by our 'welfare state' are disappearing. Social spending has been cut drastically in an attempt to combat recession, globalization and restructuring, and the deficit.The decline of the welfare state poses special risks for women. The policies, benefits, and services of the welfare state are directly linked to women's basic freedoms. The welfare state employs women to deliver services such as childcare, home-help, nursing, and social work. In turn, these services have meant that women can enter the paid labour force, provide for dependants, and leave abusive relationships. Access to political resources have helped women to form solidarities, alliances, and organizations. In Women and the Canadian Welfare State, scholars from environmental studies, law, social work, sociology, and economics explore the changing relationship between women and the welfare state. They examine the transformation of the welfare state and itsimplications for women; key issues in welfare state debates such as social rights, family and dependency, and gender-neutral programs and inequality; women's work and the state; and the role of women as agents of change.Wome n and the Canadian Welfare State explains not only how women are affected by changes in policy and programming, but how they can take an active role in shaping these changes. It bridges an important gap for scholars and students who are interested in gender, public policy, and the welfare state." Very good. 40.00

ANGUS, James T. A Respectable Ditch : A History of the Trent-Severn Waterway 1833-1920. Kingston / Montreal : McGill-Queen's University Press, (1988).First Printing. Pp. (5),[vi]-xiv,(2),3-455,(3), including plates. Illustra ted in black and white. 8vo, decorated brown cloth with black lettering to spine. "In some respects the history of the Trent-Severn Waterway resemblesthe history of Canada. One parallels the other. The same political and eco nomic tensions that have constantly beset the country can be identified in the canal's story: defence against American invasion, free trade versus tariff protection, private enterprise or government intervention, the problem of moving vast quantities of grain from the central plains to deep-water ports, freight rates, energy production and who should control it, and the obsessive preoccupation with federal and provincial responsibilities. What follows is a record of how these national questions affected the development of a waterway that the country could ill afford and only a handful of people wanted. Consequently, this is not a story about transportation or engineering. It is a book about politics -- the politics of dreamers." - from the dustjacket. Contents: I: The Colonial Years, 1833-41: 1. James Bethune's Waterway; 2. The Bobcaygeon Lock; 3. The Question of Routes; 4. Improvements on the Inland Waters; 5. Improvements on the River Trent; 6. Stoppage of the Works.
