82 BOUDREAU, Michael City of Order : Crime and Society in Halifax, 1918-35. Law and Society Series
University of British Columbia Press / UBC Press, Vancouver & Toronto, 2012, ISBN:077482204X

Pp (8),ix-xii,(4),1-327,(9). 8vo, illustrated paper-covered boards. In UBC Press's Law and Society Series. "Interwar Halifax was a city in flux,a place where citizens struggled to adopt new ideas and technologies as th ey dealt with rising levels of poverty, unemployment, and outmigration. Many Haligonians debated the pros and and cons of the modern world, but most agreed on one thing - modernity was corrupting public morality and unleashing an imposing array of social problems, including crime, on their fair city. In this context, citizens, policy makers, and officials turned to the criminal „ justice system to create a bulwark against further social dislocation. Officials modernized the city's machinery of order - courts, prisons, and the police force - and placed greater emphasis on crime control, while residents supported tough-on-crime measures and attached little importance to rehabilitation. These initiatives gave birth to a constructed vision of acriminal class that singled out ethnic minorities, working-class men, and female and juvenile offenders as problem figures. Michael Boudreau's in-depth study of crime and culture in interwar Halifax, the first of its kind, shows how tough-on-crime measures can compound, rather than resolve, social inequalities and dislocations.

89 BOWERING, George Allophanes. First Edition
Coach House Press, Toronto, 1976, 
BOWERING, George. Allophanes. Toronto : The Coach House Press, (1976). First Printing. Pp. (56). Unpaginted. Tall 8vo, printed blue paper wrappers, French flaps, dark blue lettering to front & spine, triangular porthole cut to front cover. George Harry Bowering, OC, OBC (b. December 1, 1935, Penticton, British Columbia). "This poem was written from September to December in1974, & from all appearances seems to bridge a gap between the politics of 'At War with the U.S.' & the cultural narrative of 'A Short Sad Book'. It began with a sentence heard in the author's head: The snowball appears in Hell every morning at seven. It was said in the voice of Jack Spicer. The author knew something was up, & went deliberately to hear some more voices asbest he could, & hurried to write down what they were saying. Astute reade rs will recognize some of them. Allo means all. Phanes means appearances. The poem tries not to get one without the other. The scientific usage of theterm attends the shifting colours of mineral formations, such as stalactit es, lights in a cave. The word could also be translated as those things which are other than what they at first appear to be, all taken together." - from the front flap. Small sticker ghost to front cover, name inked to flyleaf, four characters inked to rear flap, else very good. NOTE: Due to its small size, shipping costs should be cheaper than quoted. 20.00
