McGill-Queen's Studies in Ethnic History, Series Two, Volume 17.

"The Armenian Genocide that killed 1.5 million people almost one hundred years ago is only now becoming part of public consciousness. Isabel Kaprielian-Churchill combines the skills of an historian with the imagination of a novelist in a compelling history of the more than seventy-five thousand Armenians who have found refuge in Canada

Featuring moving interviews with survivors of the genocide, Like Our Mountains has an emotional intensity rare for a work of historical scholarship. from the late nineteenth century to the devastating earthquake in 1988. It relates the history of the Canadian - Armenian community from its founding, settlements, and economic adjustments; its social, religious, political, and cultural life; transformations over generations, and relationship with other communities in Canadian society. Based on exhaustive research in English, Armenian, and French sources, Kaprielian-Churchill's examination covers the major Canadian cities settled by Armenian immigrants - Brantford before 1914, St Catharines after World War I, Hamilton after World War II, and Toronto and Montreal from the 1960s to 1988." - from the dj.

"This is a comprehensive study of Soviet policy towards Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan during the first ten years after the Russian Revolution. The intrinsic importance of these three countries can be gauged by the fact that all of them are contiguous to Soviet Russia, and all them, during the period in question, were in the process ofundergoing similar nationalistic experiences under leaderships which seeme d to have approximately the same objectives.

Now, on the occasion of the redesign of the Metropolitan's Cypriot galleries, comes this gorgeously illustrated catalogue of some 500 objects, rangingfrom glass, stone sculpture, and terra-cotta figurines to lamps, pottery, and jewelry. The Cesnola Collection includes works that are among the finest examples of Cypriot art from the prehistoric, Archaic, Classical/Hellenistic, and Roman periods. The first scholarly catalogue since 1914 of a largeselection from the Cesnola Collection, this volume will be an invaluable r eference." Very good n dustjacket. 60.00

Illustrated with several black and white photos and reproductions. 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to front board and spine. "On a dismal day, October 16, 1944, a freigh train moved lazily from Terezin to an unknown destination somewhere in the East. Perhaps the sun wasshining brightly, but it was dismal inside the cattle cars filled with a s trange cargo. This was a normal sort of day, especially in the few weeks between September 28 and October 28 of the year, with a number of similar trains heading in the same direction, always with the same purpose: to trasport thousands of prisoners from the 'anteroom to hell' to the real hell in Auschwitz, thousands upon thousands of peple whose only 'crime' was that theywere born to Jewish parents. Suddenly a piece of paper appeared in tyhe ai r alongside the train, gliding slowly to the ground. A post card wiht a terse message had been dropped from the cattle car with the hope that some bystander would put a stamp on it and mail it. And somebody did. A few days later the postcard reached its destination. It expressed concern about several people: 'Dear Olinka, Sofie Fischer has promised me today that she will visit our mother frequently. All of us think today very much of Leous and Klarca. Be well. Let the dear God protect you. Love and kisses, Egon.' There was no concern expressed abou the sender himself. Egon Ledec, former assistant concertmaster of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, a fine artist and equally fine person, always worried about others and lent a helping hand wherever possible. For almost three years the sound of his beloved violin poured like a healing balm into the hearts of his fellows in misery, and only a few days earlier he had participated in the world premier of a composition written for the Terezin orchestra. Today the composer, the conducter, and many members of the ensemble, together with hundreds of yesterday's audiences, were on their way to the fearsome Unknown." - from the prologue.

"Organized reuse is considered one of the most promising approaches to improving software time to market, qualityand productivity. The purpose of this book is to demonstrate and present a copherent process for introducing software reuse into an organization. The 'holistic' approach is in recognition of the fact systematic reuse affects most parts of the organization and without considering all parts it will h ave limited success. Practical guidelines for developing reusable software - both from scratch and based on re-engineering of existing software - are based on the industral experience of the 8 companies who pprduced this book. The guidelines present the curent state of practice and have been tested and evaluated on real applications. They also take acount of the organizational context within whih a reuse startegy must operate. In order to weigh up the benefits of resue compated with costs of development, the book focuses on how to measure the efects on productivity, lead time and quality as well as a model to meaure the reausabilty and quality of a saftware component.

KARLSSON, Gunnar. Iceland's 1100 Years : History of a Marginal Society. [N.pl.] : Mal og menning, (2000). First thus printing. Pp. (4),v-xiii,(1),1-418. 8vo, art-illustrated black card covers with blue and pink lettering to front cover and spine. "'Iceland's 1100 Years' recounts the history of a society on the margin of Europe as well as on the margin of reaching the size and wealth of a proper state. Iceland is unique among European societies inbeing founded as late as the Viking Age, and in surviving for centuries wt ihout any central power after Christianity had introduced the art of writing. This was the age of the Sagas, which are not only literature but also a rare treasury of soruces about a stateless society. In sharp contrast to the prosperous society portrayed by the Sagas, early modern Iceland appears to have been extremely poor and miserable. It is challenging to question whether the deteriorate was due to foreign rule, to a colder climate, or to anunfortunate internal power structure. Or was the Golden Age perhaps the in vention of 19th-century nationalists? Iceland adopted nationalism quickly and thoroughly. In the mid-nineteenth century about 60000 inhabitants, mostly poor peasants, set out to gain independence from Denmark, which was finally achieved in 1944 with the foundation of a republic. In recent decades Iceland has caught up economically with its closest neighbours. This has comemainly through the mechanisation of fishing, which gave rise to a second b attle for sovereignty, this time over the country's fishing grounds." - from rear.

"The vitality of the English folk-song tradition is shown in a remarkable way by the wealth of songs that have persisted by means of oral transmission throughout the English-speaking countriesoverseas. Newfoundland, England's oldest colony, may be placed high among the regions of the North American continent which have contributed to the enrichments of our musical heritage. Maud Karpeles, who at an earlier date had accompanied Cecil Sharp in his collecting expeditions in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, spent about fourteen weeks in Newfoundland during 1929and 1930. She visited some forty of the small settlements, or outports as they are called, which are dotted along the coasts; and the result of this expedition was a superlatively rich and varied collection of songs and ballads. Some are interesting and distinctive versions of well-known songs, others are less familiar, with an individual beauty of their own. Ninety of these songs, or 150 tunes including variants, are presented in this book together with notes and commentaries on the songs and an introductory chapter in which the collector gives an account of her travels." - from the dj.

"With prospectors, trappers, and whalers pouring into northwestern Canada, the North West Mounted Police weredispatched to the newest frontier to maintain patrols, protect indigenous peoples, and enforce laws in the North. In carrying out their duties, theseintrepid men endured rigorous and dangerous conditions. On December 21, 19 10, a four-man patrol left Fort McPherson, Northwest Territories, heading for Dawson City, Yukon, a distance of 670 kilometres. They never arrived. The harrowing drama of their 52-day struggle to survive is an account of courageous failure, one that will resonate strongly in its depiction of human intelligence pitted against the implacable forces of nature. Based on Fitzgerald's daily journal records, Death Wins in the Arctic tells of their tremendous courage, their willingness to face unthinkable conditions, and their dedication to fulfill the oath they took. Throughout their ordeal, issues of conservation, law enforcement, Aboriginal peoples, and sovereignty emerge, all of which are global concerns today." - from rear cover.

Renée Goldsmith Kasinsky (b. United States) a landed immigrant in Canada since 1969.

A volume relating to the 70,000 some odd Americans who came to Canada during the Vietnam War as "draft dodgers", and deserters from the US Army.

American Deserters Committee, the Toronto Ant-Draft Prgram [the TADP], Vietnam Veterans Aganst the War / Winer Soldier Organization [VVAW / WSO], &c.

"This study of American war refugees in Canada focuses on draft dodgers and deserters who emigrated or fled to Canada between 1965 and 1970. In 1970 there was an estimated 70,000 draft-age refugees in Canada, mostly draft dodgers, although beginning in 1969 the number of deserters began to surpass the dodgers. These men are 'forgotten Americans' who have become profoundly disillusioned with the American dream and have come to Canada as pioneers seeking a new life. This book describes how these men made the decision to leave their home country and the consequences of that decision for their careers, identities, and 'patriotism.' It explores the impact they have made on Canadian life and the implications of their flight to Canada for the American government's handling of dissent to the Vietnam War.

From the point of view of the United States government, these refugees are felons who are in violation of the Selective Service Act but are permitted to utilize the escape hatch to Canada in order to diffuse their political protest. In Canada these men are officially recognized as persons eligible to apply for immigrant status. The men view themselves as political refugees.

In this book Dr. Kasinsky has utilized the interactionist approach. Direct observation across Canada and participation in Canadian groups aiding these refugees provided the largest source of data. She also made use of detailed questionnaires, taped in-depth interviews of diverse 'social types' and utilized historical documentation to study more than 800 refugees with considerable cross-checking of data and conclusions." from the jacket.

Index. 4to, light grey cloth, orange lettering to spine, and orange Thames & Hudson logo to front board. "The many advantages a second house brings - whether it is in the country or by the sea - have made it increasingly popular with people whose working lives keep them tied to the centre of towns. This book examines the special aspects of homes designed primarily for holiday use. Thefifty examples chosen range internationally from simple, one-room, weekend retreats to much larger family houses, equipped for long-term visits and p roviding accommodation for guests. The terrains are as diverse as Long Island and the Sorrento peninsula. The skill with which the difflifferent designers have evolved form and structure to meet the special demands of a wide variety of sites and settings, at the same time ensuring that the plan, finishes and equipment keep maintenance and housework to a minimum, makes thisa stimulating and informative sourcebook for anyone, architect or client, who is interested in building a house out of town. In designing vacation houses, the book discusses individual houses according to type and size. It shows how the economical basic box-shaped bugalow, built on a rectangular plane, can be adapted to fit a sloped site, one in the woods, one near the water; how it can be developed as an L-shape or cruciform, or adjusted to a T-torm so that it provides a view that might otherwise be limited to the narrow facade of the house. Among the numerous other compact houses shown are those based on the triangle, square, classic pyramid, and hexagon, which have the advantage of rapid even heating from a central source. The book is lavishly illustrated - there are some three hundred photographs. Special client requiremments and site problems are discussed in detail, and all floor plans show the position of the major pieces of furniture and equipment so that it is clear how all the indoor and outdoor spaces are intended to be used. Site plans and sections are included where these have special relevanceto the design as well as any unusual structural details." (from the dj). C ontents : Introduction. Examples : One-storey houses with rectangular or square ground plans; Variations on L- and U-shaped plans; Houses with gallerybedrooms or sleeping space; Two-storey houses with completely or partially open ground floors; Houses with fan-shaped or cruciform ground plans; Sing le- and multi-storey houses with tent, pyramid or complex roof forms; Houses of suspended or cantilevered construction.

KASSOW, Samuel D. Students, Professors, and the State in Tsarist Russia. Berkeley / Los Angeles / London : University of California Press, (1989). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xii,1-438, + 5 p. of black and white plates. 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. A volume in the Studies in the History of Society and Culture series, Victoria E. Bonnell and Lynn Hunt, editors. "Between 1899 and 1911, student strikes and demonstrations disrupted Russia's higher educational institutions. The universities marched to theirown peculiar tempo, however, and it was not until the strike of 1905 that student unrest coincided with mass movements outside the academic world. 'Students, Professors, and the State in Tsarist Russia', the first comprehensive study of the student movement during the waning decades of tsarist rule, focuses on the interplay of student protest, faculty politics, and government policy toward the universities. The author examines the changing responses of students, faculty, and government officials to the crisis of the university and the old regime, throwing new light on the chronic political and social instability of the tsarist system. Kassow's familiarity with source material and his use of narratives from participants and observers alike provide both a trenchant analysis and a lively portrait of the times. Original and incisive, this book will be welcomed not only by specialists in theRussian field but also by anyone interested in the dynamics of student pro test and the role of the intellectual in popular movements." - from the dustjacket.

28280 KAUDER, Christian and Pierre MAILLARD MAILLARD, Pierre Buch das gut, enthaltend den Katechismus, Betrachtung, Gesang.
1866, 
KAUDER, Christian. Buch das gut, enthaltend den Katechismus, Betrachtung, Gesang. "Die kaiserliche wie auch königliche Buchdruckerei hat es gedruckt in der kaiserlichen Stadt Wien in Oesterreich." 1866. [Volume containing manual of catechism, prayer book and instructions, psalms and hymns], printed in Mi'kmaq ideographs (figurative lettering). 3 vols. bound as 1. Vol. 1: pp. [xii] includes inspirational engraving (leaf i-ii]) + 146 includes inspirational engraving (leaf 1-2), and index (leaf 145-146); Vol 2: pp. 109 includes inspirational engraving (leaf 1-2), and half-title (leaf 3-4) + [1 leaf] (index); Vol. 3: 210 pp. includes inspirational engraving (leaf 1-2), half-title (leaf 3-4), and index (p. 210). Original dark green full morocco,boards ruled and decorated in gilt within blind ruled border, with front b oard having an additional ornamental and episcopal device in center, spine elaborately titled and decorated in gilt, a.e.g.

The text in Mi'kmaq ideographs is accompanied in places by German language headings. 12mo. (7 1/8" x 4 7/8"). Original tissue guards to all four engraved plates are present.

This copy is one of assumedly several richly bound copies which had been designated for Bishop Colin Francis Mackinnon of Arichat, within whose diocese Kauder had been working for the spiritual benefit of the native population.

The Bishop's Latin presentation inscription on flyleaf reads: "Viro Fortis simo E. M. Dodd Judici Episcopus Arichatencis Dono dedit 1869".

The recipient, Edmund Murray Dodds (1797 - 1876), was a member of the Nova Scotia Legislative Assembly and at the time he was presented with the book a judge of the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia. He co-authored, in 1845, a Report on the condition of the Micmac population in this island [i.e. Cape Breton, NS]. For MacKinnon (1810-1879) see DCB X:479-480; for Dodd, see DCB X:232-3. Pilling, Algonquin Languages, 2057-59. TPL Second Supp.:9464 (Der Katechismus only). Akins: (Das Gesangbuch only) p. 17.

Originally developed by Chretien Le Clerq during his 17th century ministry to the Mi'kmaqs of Gaspé, the Mi'kmaq ideographs were later improved upon by Pierre Maillard, missionary to the Mi'kmaqs of Eastern Nova Scotia during the midpart of the 18th century. Maillard was in very large part the composer of the manuals and song selec tions here comprising the three volumes of this book, and which had formerly been labouriously copied by hand and circulated among the Mi'kmaqs.

The printing of the manuals and songs was finally brought about in 1866 through the efforts of Christian Kauder and his Viennese sponsors.

Kauder, born in Luxembourg, was ordained in Europe in 1840 and had preached in a number of parishes in the United States. He was convalescing at the Trappist Abbey of Petit Clairvaux in Tracadie, Nova Scotia when he developed his learned and evangelical interest in ideographic language of the Mi'kmaq native peoples of the area. Through his direction, and under the enjoyment of generous sponsorship, the printing of Der Katechismus, Das Betrachtungsbuch, and Das Gesangbuch was achieved from ideographic type cast expressly for that purposein Vienna.

Writing in some detail of Kauder's undertaking, the Rev. Angus Anthony Johnston states, "The project took many years of work, for 5,703 type faces had to be specially cut. The printing finally began in 1865, and the work was completed by the end of 1866. The total cost - equivalent to $755 in the North American monetary value of the time -- was met by the Leopoldine Society of Vienna. 'Unluckily only the first shipment of these precious books ever reached America, while the great bulk of them was destroyed in a shipwreck'." -- Johnston, A History of the Catholic Church in Eastern Nova Scotia Vol. II, p. 448.

Apart from occurrences of the binding together of all three works in one volume, two of the three titles were commonly issued as separate volumes. As J.C. Pilling writes in his Bibliography of the Algonquian Languages, "I have seen copies of the Katechismus alone, the Gesangbuch alone, and the Katechismus and Betrachtungsbuch combined..." He also states, "So far as I know, these are the only books printed in these characters."

Inscription of subsequent owner to flyleaf reads: "Ce livre tiré à un petit nombre d'examplaires en à été offert comme souvenir d'amitié par la famille Dodd à Sydney (Ile du Cap Breton) le 30 Septembre 1882 / Edmund de Lapierre".

Amidst the rich ornamentation of the spine are the gilt impressions of six ideographic characters conforming in size to their letterpress impressions, suggesting that the binder whose work is represented here was located in Vienna.

Some scattered foxing affects the engraved plates and l eaves adjacent them. Binding moderately worn along extremities. A very good copy. 12,000

Three volumes from the Transatlantic Relations Series.

An encyclopedia of England's relationships (political, spiritually, economically, and militarily) with the Western Hemisphere.

From Vikings to redcoats, from the Beatles to the war in Iraq, Britain and the Americas examines Britain's cultural and political legacy to the nations of the Americas. This comprehensive survey also traces how the Americas have in turn influenced contemporary Britain from the Americanization of language and politics to the impact of music and migration from the West Indies.

Complete with an extensive introduction and a chronology of key events, this three-volume encyclopedia contains introductory essays focusing on the four prime areas of British Atlantic engagement, Canada, the Caribbean, the United States, and Latin America. Students of a wide range of disciplines, as well as the lay reader, will appreciate this exhaustive survey, which traces the common themes of British policy and influence throughout the Americas and highlights how Britain has in turn benefited from the influence of American democracy, technology, culture and politics.

Includes numerous Canadian and nautical references. Entries are arranged alphabetically.

Illustrated. Double Column. 4to, bluecloth, silver lettering to spine. Companion to the Discovery Channel Mini- Series. "Spectacular color photographs and a lively text tell the story of the submarine in this companion volume to a four-part documentary television series produced by the Discovery Channel. Generally following the program's format, the book significantly amplifies the subject, both for longtime fans and for those whose interest in submarines has been piqued by recent events. The pictures and commentary provided here vividly capture the feel of being on board and underwater and offer a rare insider's view of the challenges, pressures, and excitement unique to submariners. Readers join a dangerous World War II patrol in the Pacific, a modern-day cruise to secret destinations, and an unprecedented tour of the world's largest submarine, a Russian "Typhoon," seen by few Westerners. The photography is the work of two masters of the craft: Yogi Kaufman, a professional photographer and retired admiral in the U.S. Navy who brings nearly forty years of submarine experience to the project, and his son, Steve Kaufman, a noted outdoor photographer who has been shooting images of submarines and their crews periodically over the past four years. Contributing a historical perspective to the book is Paul Stillwell, a naval historian and former naval officer who has demonstrated his feel for ships and their men in previous books. In addition to the Kaufman's photographs there are several rarely seen World War II color photos by Edward Steichen and paintings of the early days of submarine warfare. The submarine's development, its successes in various conflicts since its invention, the influence of Admiral Rickover and others on its development, and its effectiveness as an instrument of national policy are all high-lighted in this book. But the spotlight is centered squarely on the crews, and their selection, training, and performance received deserved attention." - from the dj. Very good in torn dustjacket. 16.50

Johns Hopkins University Press, Baltimore and London, 1993, ISBN:0801845491 
KAVANAGH, Thomas M. Enlightenment and the Shadows of Culture : The Novel and the Culture of Gambling in Eighteenth-Century France. Baltimore and London : The Johns Hopkins University Press, (1993). Pp (6),vii-xiii,(3),1-271,(1). Index. 8vo, blue cloth, black lettering to spine. "While Montesquieu was praising indifference to financial gain, Louis XV regularly presided overdizzying gambling games at Versailles. While Descartes was advancing a str ategy for escaping from chance by appealing to the protocols of certainty, clandestine gambling operations in Paris numbered in the hundreds. Despite efforts by the major figures of the French Enlightenment to suppress the period's fascination with chance, high-stakes gambling was an integral part of the social rituals of the most influential groups withing the "ancien regime". [This book] explores this imprtant paradox in order to shed light on the genesis, development and function of the eighteenth-century French novel. First considering the roles of chance and gambling in the epistemological, social and economic histories of the period, Kavanagh shows that doctrines of chance played a denied yet operative role in important aspects of what the French Enlightenment proclaimed itself to be. He then looks at representations of chance in the novels of Prechac, Prevost, Voltaire, Denon, Crebillon and Diderot, and shows how they tell two stories: that of a deterministic and ordered universe, and that of a world of fortuitous events determined only by chance. It was the tension and interplay between these two poles, Kavanagh argues, that contributed in an important way to the development of the Enlightenment's ideal of the rational man." (from the dj).

KAVEY, Allison. Books of Secrets : Natural Philosophy in England, 1550-1600. Urbana and Chicago: University of Illinois Press, (2007). First Printing.Pp. (8),ix-x,(2),1-197,(7). 8vo, dark grey cloth with gilt lettering to sp ine. "The rise of print culture in early modern England is one of the most important and most frequently studied changes of the period. Often viewed as a marker of modernity, this shift provides the starting point for 'Books of Secrets', which illuminates how sixteenth-century English culture was influenced by one particular type of print matter -- 'books of secrets'. Ranging from alchemy to necromancy, these texts offered medieval readers an affordable and accessible collection of knowledge about the natural world. Notonly studying the content of these books but also uncovering how readers d igested and reacted to it, Allison Kavey delves into several aspects of book production and consumption in early modern England. 'Books of Secrets' examines familiar concerns of publishing -- promotion, pricing, audience identification, and manipulation of structure and content -- to show how books of secrets were part of a broad cultural effort to make elite knowledge popular and, in so doing, also make it legitimate and acceptable." - from the dustjacket.
