With 22 b&w photos in the text. Oblong 8vo, photo-illustrated green card covers, yellow lettering to spine. Marial Morse Mosher (b. January 29, 1917, Halifax, Nova Scotia - d. October 4, 2008, Halifax, Nova Scotia). “Why give up a developing career on Broadway for army life, why give up ballet slippers for army boots? The fit was a natural one given Marial's intrepid personality, youthful patriotic zeal and natural leadership. At home one summer, Marial responded with her characteristic spontaneity to a call from the fledgling Nova Scotia Women's Volunteer Corps. She enlisted. The Canadian Women's Army Corps (CWAC) was established in September 1941 and Marial was one of the first in line. Broadway was forgotten – forever, as it turned out. The woman who emerged from the military crucible as a senior officer went on to a distinguished academic career and induction into the Order of Nova Scotia. This book in her own words in Marial's wartime story.” - from the back cover. Foreword by Joan Watson; Introduction; Chapters : 1. Halifax and Ste.-Anne-de-Bellevue ; 2. 1Company, Halifax; 3.

University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 2008, ISBN:9780802098191 
MUTIMER, David (ed.). Canadian Annual Review of Politics and Public Affairs2002. Toronto : Published with the support of York University by Universit y of Toronto Press, (2008). First Edition. Pp [i]-xxxv,(1),[1]-298,(2). Index. 8vo, grey cloth, black lettering and gilt line to front board, gilt lettering and black panel to spine. “Both at home and abroad, the events of 2002 contrasted significantly with those of the previous year, something for which most Canadians could be extremely grateful. To no one's surprise, however, the year was dominated by the issues that had captivated the world's attention at the end of 2001: the attacks on the United States and the subsequent 'war on terror' declared by the Bush administration. Canada had chosen to stand 'shoulder to shoulder' with its southern neighbour in response to those attacks, and in 2002 the meaning of that commitment became clear as Canada entered into full-scale combat operations in Afghanistan, sufferedits first casualties, and ended the year torn over whether to follow the U nited States should it choose to send troops to Iraq. On the home front, a battle of an altogether different magnitude reached a turning point with the seeming resolution of the long-running struggle between Prime Minister Jean Chrétien and Minister of Finance Paul Martin, even though by year's end,it was by no means clear who had actually won. Similarly, a number of the consequences of the 9/11 attacks remained unresolved. Changes to legislation regarding national security failed to be approved; Ottawa software engineer Maher Arar, who was arrested and deported by the United States on suspicion of terrorist links, languished in a Syrian jail despite official protest by the Canadian Government; and the war drums were beating loudly around Iraq.” (from the dj). Contents : The Federal Perspective : Parliament and politics (by Robert Everett); Foreign affairs and defence (by Christopher Spearin); Municipal affairs (by Emmanuel Brunet-Jailly and Warren Magnusson).The Provincial Perspectives : British Columbia (by Carey Hill); Alberta (b y Harold Jansen); Saskatchewan (by Joseph Garcea); Manitoba (by Geoffrey Lambert); The Territories (by Ken Coates and Greg Poelzer); Ontario (by Robert Drummond); Quebec (by Daniel Salée); New Brunswick (by Richard Wilbur); Prince Edward Island (by Peter E.

Pp [i]-xxxi,(1),[1]-285,(3). Index. 8vo, grey cloth, black lettering and gilt line to front board, gilt lettering and black panel to spine. “In 2003, Canada earned distinction on theworld stage for eradicating deficit spending and for its progressive stanc e evident in its support for gay marriage, moves to decriminalize possession of marijuana, and liberal immigration policies. However, despite it achievements, Canada faced many new and longstanding political challenges. Canada was not immune to widespread turmoil and uncertainty rooted in war, disease, and the effects of globalization such as SARS, mad cow disease, and a large-scale blackout affecting the north-eastern United States and Ontario. The United States was becoming mired in a complex and prolonged war with Iraq, and a large contingent of Canada's armed forces remained in Afghanistan. Additional security measures were implemented to meet the threat of terrorism, while Mahar Arar's accounts of torture endured in a Syrian jail became a symbol of public doubt about many of the new counter-terrorism initiatives.” (from the dj).
