He became the first royal governor of Massachusetts in 1692, put an end to the Salem witchcraft trials, and negotiated a treaty with the native Wabanaki. This biography presents a well-rounded picture of Phips, one that looks at all phases of his colourful career. He was an unusual figure amongcolonial governors, and his very uniqueness, as well as his difficulties a s a governor, help us to understand the politics and society of New Englandduring his era.

It offers the first in-depth account of the rise and fallof the system of naval government that dominated the island for more than a century. In this provocative look at legal culture in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Newfoundland, Jerry Bannister explores three topics in detail: naval government in St. John's, surrogate courts in the outports, and patterns in the administration of law. He challenges the conventional view that early Newfoundland was a lawless frontier isolated from the rest of theAtlantic world, and argues that an effective system of naval government em erged to meet the needs of those in power. The Rule of the Admirals sheds light on one of the most misunderstood chapters in Canadian and British colonial history. Drawing on extensive archival research as well as a broad range of secondary sources, Bannister provides a groundbreaking reinterpretation of a critical period in the island's colonial development." - p.[i].

""Adding to a dynamic new wave of scholarship in Atlantic history, The Loyal Atlantic offers fresh interpretations of the key roleplayed by Loyalism in shaping the early modern British Empire. This cohesi ve collection investigates how Loyalism and the empire were mutually constituted and reconstituted from the eighteenth century onward. Featuring contributions by authors from across Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom, The Loyal Atlantic brings Loyalism into a genuinely international focus. Through cutting-edge archival research, The Loyal Atlantic contextualizes Loyalism within the larger history of the British Empire. It also details how, far from being a passive allegiance, Loyalism changed in unexpected and fascinating ways - especially in times of crisis. Most importantly, The Loyal Atlantic demonstrates that neither the conquest of Canada nor the American Revolution can be properly understood without assessing the meanings of Loyalism in the wider Atlantic world."

BARBER, Bruce, Serge GUILBAUT, and John O'BRIAN (eds.). Voices of Fire : Art, Rage, Power, and the State. Introduction by John O'Brian. Toronto / Buffalo / London : University of Toronto Press, (91996). Pp (6),[vii]-xiv,(2),[3]-210,(2). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, illustrated white card covers, lettered in red. "On 7 March 1990 the National Gallery of Canada issued a press release announcing its purchase of a large abstract painting by the American artist Barnett Newman for $1.8 million. Within 72 hours the gallery was under attack both for its selection of Voice of Fire and for the price tag attached to it. Objections came from across Canada and from all quarters. The Voice of Fire controversy was the most extensive and heated debate over visual art ever to have taken place in Canada. This anthology can be seen as acase-study, providing both a historical account of the outcome of the Nati onal Gallery's purchase of the painting and an understanding of why the gallery's actions provoked such strong opinions and feelings. In this volume the editors also address the peculiar and paradoxical character of abstract art in general and the problems it consistently poses for viewers. Newman'swork is presented as the focus of these concerns. The attack on the galler y by the press, the general public, Canadian artists, and politicians is documented in the first section by a broad selection of cartoons satirizing the painting, press photographs, news releases, editorials, letters to the editor, and public exchanges. In the second section three essays offer contrasting accounts of the controversy and its significance. The first considers the social processes by which art becomes art, the second focuses on the role of the media in shaping public opinion about art, and the third compares the reception of Voice of Fire in two distinctive frameworks, first at Expo '67 in Montreal and then in Ottawa in 1990. In the final part four papers given at a symposium on Voice of Fire organized by the gallery in October 1990 (a combined effort at damage control and art criticism) are presented, as well as a transcription of the public dialogue between speakers and audience which followed." (Abstract). Contents : Introduction: Bruising the Public Eye (by John O'Brian). Documents : Chronology; Graphic Satires; Texts.

'Class Works' introduces Condé and Beveridge's artistic breakthr ough of 1976, 'It's Still Privileged Art', when the artists -- under the influence of their membership in Art & Language (NY) and the nascent Conceptual art movement -- turned from formalist art-making to social engagement and from individualized solo production to committed artistic collaboration.

BARNES, Celia. Native American Power in the United States, 1783-1795. Madison and Teaneck : Fairleigh Dickinson University Prsss / Londo : Associaed University Presses, (2993). First Edition. Pp (6),7-250,(6). Illstrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "As the United States took its first faltering steps as an independent reoublic. the Native Americans who occupied vast areas of the newly fonned nation devised slrategies to defend their own independence. The implications of the diverse and pervasive power of Native Americans during this period were tar-reaching. The United States was based on a precarious political structure, its central government facing widespread distrust and even hostility, and its integrity threatened by both foreign interference and domestic fragmentation. Its inability to resolve the problems in the West served to undermine its already tenuous credibility, and the Native American presence thus contributed significantly to the fragility of tne union. This study shows the Native Americansto have influenced the development of the United States so widely as to de serve a central place in early United States history. An evaluation of the complex function and operation of Native American power within Indian groups and their relations with outsiders forms an important part of this study.The diverse and fluid nature of Indian power and authority, so difficult f or Europeans to grasp, informed the Native Americans' experience and their relationship with the United States. Within the independent villages, each person followed his own path in accordance with the cultural imperative of individual autonomy. In the struggle to preserve their lands and independence, many leaders and villages adopted strategies based on local needs, while others sought to create a pan-Indian movement to achieve their goal. Attempts to strengthen their crumbling cultural framework also reflected the diversity of Indian groups. For many, a reconnection with their spritual protectors and denunciation of all white ways was the only effective means of regaining their earthly power, and for militant warriors this included consolidation of their physical force. Many others, however, believed their onlychance for survival as an indenendent people was through negotiation and a ccommodation backed by a united Indian diolomatic front. The resulting chaos characterized this violent period of Indian-white relations. Through an examination of archival collections held in the U.S.A., Canada, and Britain,this study shows how the Indian "problem" intensified the struggle to legi timize federal auinonty, establish national institutions, and create a cohesive nation. Certainly, the national government's inability to conquer the Indians, by either fforce or negotiation, exposed its weakness, but the issue also threw up fundamental questions about the central government's role,capability, and credibility. With scarcely enough funds to function, much less exert its authority, unable to secure the frontiers with settlements and orderly civil government or protect its citizens from Indian attack, Congress struggled to command the respect of its citizens, and many in the West contemplaed separation from the union. The alliance of Native Americans with Britain and Spain, both of which occupied United States territory with impunity, added yet another dimension to the power wielded by the Native American groups. Overall, the study reveals the Native Americans to have beenmore than mere passive victims of their fate, but rather significant polit ical players in early United states history." (from the dj).

By looking to thinkers who grappled with the relationship of society and technology, such as Plato, Aristotle, Marx, and Heidegger, Barney critically examines such assertions about the character of digital networks." from the dj. Darin Barney is an Assistant Professor in the Department of History and Politics, University of New Brunswick, Saint John. Sheila Grant is the author of numerous articles on life issues and the ethics of biotechnology, and is the wife of noted Canadian philosopher George Parkin Grant. Very good in dustjacket.
