McGill-Queens University Press, Kingston and Montreal, 1999, ISBN:0773518088 
BOSHER, J.F. The Gaullist Attack on Canada, 1967-1997. Kingston and Montreal: McGill-Queens University Press, (1999). Pp. (6),[vii]-xi,(3),[3]-331,(1). 8vo, blue cloth with silver lettering to spine. "What lay behind Charles de Gaulle's 'Vive le Québec libre!' speech in Montreal on 24 July 1967; Philippe Rossilon's activities in New Brunswick, Belgium and Africa; and the sinking of Greenpeace's Rainbow Warrir in New Zealand in 1985? J.F. Bosher argues that the motivation behind all these incidents was France's imperial ambition. He contends that behind the screen of teh harmless fraternizing of the international francophonie, French nationalists have been at work to stimulate French revolutionary nationalism in Quebec and elsewhere. He argues that the Gaullist ideology behind these attempts rests on a set of mythsabout past events, age-old resentment of the English-speaking nations, and a deep-rooted belief in the superiority of France, its language, and its c ulture." - from the dj.

27 BUTLIN, Susan CARLYLE, Florence) Practice of Her Profession : Florence Carlyle, Canadian Painter in the Age of Impressionism

(6),[vii]-xx,(24) of colour plates,[1]-309,(7), including black and white illustrations to text. 8vo, black paper covered boards with gilt lettering to spine. "Florence Carlyle's life -- that of an independent risk-taker who actively constructed her own professional artistic practice and lived in a self-determined way that was often at odds with social convention -- reveals much about the possibilitiesand limitations of a woman artist in the nouveau siecle. Born in Galt, Ont ario, Florence Carlyle (1864-1929) emerged as one of the most successful Canadian artists of her time. She was trained in Paris and lived adn worked in New York City as well as Canada, cultivating a career as a popular portrait and genre painter. Known for her masterful use of colour, Carlyle's paintings are nuanced and perceptive portrayals of feminine spaces, the female figure, and women's domestic work. In 'The Practice of Her Profession', Susan Butlin draws on unpublished letters and family memoirs to recount Carlyle's personal and professional life. She explores Carlyle's artistic influences, her relationships with artist colleagues and encounters with the cultural worlds of Paris, New York, and early twentieth-century Canada, and provides a detailed examination of Carlyle's paintings. The vivid description of the artistic life of women of this era, from access to art training to the important role of women's art societies, introduces readers to Carlyle's many accomplished contemporaries -- Helen McNicoll, Mary Reid, Laura Muntz,Sarah Holden, Sydney Tully, Elizabeth Annie McGillivray Knowles, and other s." - from the dust jacket.

Illustrated. 8vo, black paper-covered boards with silver lettering to spine. "The Blue Banner is a case study of the survival of historic denominationalism grounded in resistance to church union. It traces the origins and near demise of Presbyterianism in Nova Scotia and the development of Saint David's from itsbeginnings as a new congregation and the only site of Presbyterian witness in metropolitan Halifax. The authors look at various aspects of congregati onal life - corporate structure and governance, education, worship and music, volunteerism, mission and outreach, and stewardship of the historic siteand building that has been home to Saint David's since the beginning." - f rom the dj flap "The creation of the United Church of Canada meant that two-thirds of the congregations of the Presbyterian Church of Canada - including every Presbyterian congregation in Halifax - vanished. Even before the United Church came into existence, however, non-uniting Presbyterians were forming a new congregation. Once established, Saint David's - heir to no less than four Scottish Presbyterian traditions - represented a new birth of Presbyterianism in Canada. The Blue Banner considers how the story of Saint David's relates to the mainstream of religious historiography and shows what historians can learn from case studies of local churches viewed in historical perspective." - from the rear of dj.

McGill-Queen's Studies in the History of Religion, No. 22. "Nanc y Christie and Michael Gauvreau look at the ways in which reformers expanded the popular base of Protestant churches through mass revivalism, established social work and sociology in Canadian universities and church colleges,and aggressively sought to take a leadership role in social reform by inco rporating independent reform organizations into the church-sponsored SocialService Council of Canada. They also explore the instrumental role of Prot estant clergymen in formulating social legislation and transforming the scope and responsibilities of the modern state. "The enormous influence of theProtestant churches before World War II can no longer be ignored, nor can the view that the churches were accomplices in their own secularization be justified. 'A Full-Orbed Christianity' calls on historians to rethink the role of Protestantism in Canadian life and to see it not as the garrison of anti-modernity but as the chief harbinger of cultural change before 1940." - from the dustjacket.

Joan Clark(née MacDonald,. 12 October 12, 1934, Liverpool, Queens County, Nova Scoti a) Canadian fiction author, graduate of Acadia University, now living in Newfoundland. "Free-spirityed Lily has always played the peacemaker between her fierce, doting sister, Laverne, and her own loving, garrulous husband, Hal, as they competed for her attention. The competition has only grown worse since the three of them moved into a large house in the town of Sussex, New Brunswick. On Lily's birthday, a steamy day in late June, Laverne feels she has bested Hal by winning her sister's company for lunch, but it becomes a bitter and short-lived victory when the day's events take an unexpectedand tragic turn. In 'The Birthday Lunch', Joan Clark explores the differen t ways each member of Lily's family confronts her shocking death: Hal's open sorrow, her daughter Claudia's reappraisal of her own life, her son Matt's determination to assign blame. And unforgettably, Laverne's eccentricity and isolation, and her intensifying conflict with Hal, illuminate the brutal territory of accusation and regret." - from the front flap. Very good. 12.00

"Criticism of conventional medicine is often regarded as a product of the 1960s. Before then, 'scientific medicine' enjoyed uncontested cultural prestige, with kindly but strict doctors wielding unquestioned authority over grateful patients while 'quacks' flogged dubious remedies to thepoor and credulous -- or so go popular perceptions and, for the most part, received scholarly wisdom. But the very nature of cancer -- mysterious, ca pricious, and deadly -- challenged medical authority in the past as much asit does today, and in 'Negotiating Disease' Barbara Clow lays to rest old assumptions about the monopoly of health care by doctors in the first half of the twentieth century." - from the introductory preamble.
