81 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 
BOUDREAU, Michael. City of Order : Crime and Society in Halifax, 1918-35. Vancouver & Toronto : University of British Columbia Press, 2012. First Printing. 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.

(8),9-336. 8vo, blue cloth with gilt titles to spine."As Robert Lam sets off on his voyage up the coast of Vancouver Island, th e last passenger he expects is a ghost. But when the spirit of Lam Fan -- the woman who brought up Robert from childhood -- suddenly and mysteriously appears, the trip they embark upon initiates a quest for the truth about a past both have been avoiding for too many years. Together Robert and Lam Fan piece together a story that begins in 19th century China and takes the reader on a harrowing journey through the South China seas and a Pacific crossing to the shores of British Columbia. We are introduced to a young and idealistic India Thackery -- Robert's mother -- and her opium-addicted companion Lam Fan, who must make their way in the emerging new world. There follows a rich and compelling tale of love and deception, greed and the opium trade -- all set against a background of fascinating historical details and the clash of transplated cultures." -from the dustjacket.

BRANDIS, Marianne. Frontiers and Sanctuaries : A Woman's Life in Holland and Canada. Montreal and Kingston : McGill-Queen's University Press, (2006). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xxi,(3),[3]-415,(3). With 67 illustrations to text including msny b&w photos. 8vo, black paper-covered boards with silver lettering to spine.

"The life of Madzy Brender à Brandis (1910-1984) -- her experiences in war, as an immigrant and pioneer, wife and mother, writer and painter, and invalid -- exemplifies the challenges faced by many women in the twentieth century. In a vivid retelling of her mother's story, Marianne Brandis chronicles Madzy's life.

Drawing from her mother's diaries, letters, newspaper columns, fiction, and historical works in English and Dutch, Marianne reconstructs Madzy's upper-middle-class youth in Holland, her struggle to keep herself and her small children alive during World War II while her husband was in a POW camp, and her emigration to Canada with her family. Increasingly handicapped in the latter part of her life by rheumatoid arthritis, she spent more and more of her time writing, speaking to and for other immigrants and women.

'Frontiers and Sanctuaries' is most powerful in showing how the conflicting needs for both frontiers and sanctuaries, freedom and safety, shaped Madzy's life. Lively, candid, introspective, and insightful, her voice shines through -- the voice of a woman for whom recording her life was both a compulsion and a delight." - from the dustjacket.

This century's most significant invertebrate fossil discovery, the Burgess Shale provides an unprecedented window into the explosive evolution during the Cambrian period that began about 540 million years ago, oneof the most enigmatic episodes in the history of life. This book provides the first comprehensive set of illustrations of the extraordinary life forms revealed in the Burgess Shale. In addition to the more common fossilized hard skeletons, the Burgess Shale preserved the soft parts of these organisms, which provide a key to understanding the early evolution of the major groups of animals that inhabit the earth today. The Fossils of the Burgess Shale shows much remarkable detail - including digestive tracts and other internal organs - of creatures preserved in particles of mud fine enough to penetrate every crack and unevenness. The book begins with the history of exploration and research in the Burgess Shale, the geologic setting and preservation of the fossils, and a discussion of the Cambrian radiation, the period when almost all the major phyla of animals evolved. These introductory chapters are followed by 199 high-quality photographs and line drawings with detailed species accounts that describe important features of each specimen, as well as the ecology and taxonomy of each group. A complete list of all currently accepted species described fromthe Burgess Shale and a comprehensive bibliography follow the illustrations. The Fossil of the Burgess Shale is a compendium of fascinating Cambrian treasures that offer a rare glimpse into the nature of early life on our planet. They have figured prominently in recent evolutionary debates." (from the dj). Very good in dustjacket. 50.00
