Sins of the Flesh
A History of Ethical
Vegetarian Thought
rod Preece
In the feld of animal studies, Rod Preece is
a world-renowned scholar, and this current
volume confrms that his reputation is well
deserved.
– Jodey Castricano, editor of Animal
Subjects
Preece’s nuanced assessments of this history
are worthy of consideration by both animal
rightists and their opponents.
– Daniel A. Dombrowski, author of
The Philosophy of Vegetarianism
The issue of our ethical obligations to non
human animals has been the subject of lively
debate, and many books have been written
on the subject. Sins of the Flesh will be an
important addition to this literature.
– Steve F. Sapontzis, author Morals,
Reason, and Animals
Unlike previous books on the history of
vegetarianism, Sins of the Flesh examines
the history of vegetarianism in its ethical
dimensions, from the origins of humanity
through to the present.
Full ethical consideration for animals
resulting in the eschewing of fesh arose
after the Aristotelian period in Greece and
recurred in Ancient Rome, but then mostly
disappeared for centuries. Despite the
occasional presence of ascetic and cultural
vegetarianism, it was not until the turn of the
nineteenth century that vegetarian thought
was revived and enjoyed some success;
it subsequently went into another period
of decline that lasted through much of the
twentieth century. The authority-questioning
cultural revolution of the 1960s brought a
fresh resurgence of vegetarian ethics that
continues to the present day.
Sins of the Flesh is a groundbreaking history
of ethical vegetarianism that will appeal to
all readers concerned with human-animal
relations and the foundations of animal rights.

Laurier University.

Rupp’s sweeping and highly readable synthesis
of women’s same-sex love and sexuality is also a
fnely crafted work of historical analysis.
– Estelle Freedman, author of No Turning Back
Every decade or so, a brave thinker makes an
attempt to chart the historical maps of women
loving women. Rupp’s contribution is perhaps
one of the most elegant and interesting – making
up for the lapses of the past, Sapphistries sails
an international course, giving us a rich mix of
historical sources and an even richer gift of asking
questions at just the right places.
– Joan Nestle, co-editor of GenderQueer
From the ancient poet Sappho to tombois in
contemporary Indonesia, women throughout
history and around the globe have desired, loved,
and had sex with other women. In beautiful
prose, Sapphistries tells their stories, capturing
the multitude of ways that diverse societies have
shaped female same-sex sexuality across time
and place. Leila J. Rupp reveals how, from the
time of the very earliest societies, the possibil-
ity of love between women has been known,
even when it is feared, ignored, or denied. We
hear women in the sex-segregated spaces of
convents and harems whispering words of love.
We see women beginning to fnd each other on
the streets of London and Amsterdam, in the
aristocratic circles of Paris, in the factories of
Shanghai. We fnd women’s desire and love for
women meeting the light of day as Japanese
schoolgirls fall in love, and lesbian bars and clubs
spread from 1920s Berlin to 1950s Buffalo.
And we encounter a world of difference in the
twenty-frst century, as transnational concepts
and lesbian identities meet local understand-
ings of how two women might love each other.
Giving voice to words from the mouths and pens
of women, and from men’s prohibitions, reports,
literature, art, imaginings, pornography, and court
cases, Rupp also creatively employs fction to
imagine possibilities when there is no historical
evidence. Sapphistries combines lyrical narrative
with meticulous historical research, providing
an eminently readable and uniquely sweeping
story of desire, love, and sex between women
around the globe from the beginning of time to
the present.
Leila J. rupp is professor of feminist studies and
associate dean of the division of social sciences
at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
She is author of many books, including A Desired
Past: A Short History of Same-Sex Sexuality in
America.

In Mixed Company explores taverns as colonial
public space and how men and women of diverse
backgrounds – Native and newcomer, privileged
and labouring, white and non-white – negotiated
a place for themselves within them. The stories
that emerge unsettle comfortable certainties
about who belonged where in colonial society.
Reconstructed from tavern-keepers’ accounts,
court records, diaries, travelogues, and letters,
In Mixed Company is essential reading for
tavern afcionados and anyone interested in the
history of gender, race, and culture in Canadian
or colonial society. The records of the past tell
stories of time spent in mixed company but also
of the myriad, unequal ways that colonists found
room in taverns and a place in Upper Canadian
culture and society.
Julia roberts is an assistant professor in the
Department of History at the University of

This book demonstrates the signifcance of
demographic knowledge to our understanding
of the province’s history and its historiography. It
provides another lens through which to view the
history of the province.
– Ruth Sandwell, author of Beyond the City
Limits: Rural History in British Columbia
In the 240 years from contact to the present,
British Columbia’s population has experienced
transformations of a kind and magnitude
witnessed nowhere else in North America. The
introduction of exotic diseases changed the
human landscape almost overnight, as did gold
rushes, industrialization, two world wars, a baby
boom, late twentieth-century immigration from
Asia, and a grey wave.
Becoming British Columbia is the frst compre-
hensive demographic history of this province.
Investigating critical moments in the demo
graphic record and linking demographic patterns
to larger social and political questions, it shows
how biology, politics, and history conspire with
sex, death, and migration to create a particular
kind of society. John Belshaw overturns the
widespread tendency to associate population
growth with progress by examining how the
province’s Aboriginal population of as much as
half a million was reduced by disease to fewer
than 30,000 people in less than a century.
He reveals that the province has a long tradi-
tion of thinking and acting vigorously in ways
meant to control and shape biological commu-
nities of humans, and suggests that imperial-
ism, race, class, and gender have historically
situated population issues at the centre of public
consciousness in British Columbia.
JOHN DOUGLAS BELSHAW, formerly professor
of history at Thompson Rivers University, is now
Associate Vice-President of Education at North
Island College, Vancouver Island.

Crisis of Conscience
Conscientious Objection in Canada during the First World War
Amy J. Shaw
Crisis of Conscience is essential reading for
anyone who wants a greater understanding of
not only conscientious objection but of the entire
Canadian experience during the First World War.
It is an original and balanced examination of a
contentious issue and an important contribution to
an often neglected area of scholarship.
– Thomas P. Socknat, co-editor of
Challenge to Mars: Essays on Pacifsm
from 1918 to 1945
An original and fascinating study of minor-
ity religious rights in Canadian society during
wartime. Crisis of Conscience will be an impor-
tant source for readers interested in pacifsm, anti-
war sentiment, and peace movements, not just in
Canada but in the wider western world.
– David Marshall, author of Secularizing the Faith:
Canadian Protestant Clergy and the Crisis of
Belief, 1850-1940
The First World War’s appalling death toll and
the need for a sense of equality of sacrifce on
the home front led to Canada’s frst experience
of overseas conscription. While historians have
focused on resistance to enforced military service
in Quebec, this has obscured the important role
of those who saw military service as incompat-
ible with their religious or ethical beliefs. Crisis of
Conscience is the frst and only book about the
Canadian pacifsts who refused to fght in the
Great War. The experience of these conscientious
objectors offers insight into evolving attitudes
about the rights and responsibilities of citizenship
during a key period of Canadian nation building.
This book will appeal to readers interested in
Canadian military and peace history. The book is
also relevant to those concerned with questions
of voluntarism and obligation in a democratic
society, and issues of gender history and minority
freedom and identity.
Amy J. Shaw is an assistant professor in the
Department of History at the University of
Lethbridge.

From Pride to Infuence sets out a trenchant but
thoughtful and solidly supported analysis of the
challenges confronting Canadian foreign policy.
Hart makes a compelling case for avoiding the
false allure of the feel-gooders and for reversing
Canada’s slide from peripheral to relevant in world
affairs.
– Derek Burney, former Canadian ambassador
to the United States
Recent Canadian foreign policy has fxated upon
Canada’s former status as a middle power within
a small club of western, democratic states. The
emergence of a US-dominated world and of an
integrated North American economy and the
decline of multilateral rules and institutions have
left Canadian foreign policy searching for new
purpose and direction. This book brings Canadian
foreign policy into the 21st century by ground-
ing it in a conception of the national interest
that accepts the primacy of the United States
in guaranteeing Canadian national security and
prosperity.
Michael Hart is Simon Reisman Professor
of Trade Policy, Norman Paterson School of
International Affairs, and Distinguished Fellow of
the Centre for Trade Policy and Law at Carleton

Who Is My Neighbor? is a compelling account of
the author’s ten-year journey as a volunteer at the
St. Francis Center, a homeless shelter in Denver,
Colorado. A retired Professor of Communication,
Tompkins marshals his considerable experience
as a participant observer in recording the voices
of the guests of the shelter as they teach us
about their situation. We learn about their hopes
for regaining a home and their fears as they
are victimized – in some cases even murdered.
Tompkins shows how effective communication
and organization can contribute to fnding an end
to homelessness and establishing a movement
toward protective action, especially when a
proactive local government gets involved. In
addition to giving voice to homeless people,
Who Is My Neighbor? explores Denver Mayor
John Hickenlooper’s ambitious Commission
to End Homelessness. This remarkable social
experiment, now called Denver’s Road Home, is
two years into implementing an innovative plan
for ending homelessness. It provides a model
for other cities nationwide where persistent
homelessness has defed resolution.

At a time when increasing numbers of people are
tuning out the nightly news and media consump-
tion is falling, the late-night comedians have
become some of the most important newscast-
ers in the country. From Cronkite to Colbert
explains why. It examines an historical path that
begins at the height of the network age with
Walter Cronkite and Edward R. Murrow, when
the evening news was considered the authorita-
tive record of the day’s events and forged our
assumptions about what “the news” is, or should
be. The book then winds its way through the
breakdown of that paradigm of “real” news to its
reinvention in the unlikely form of such popular-
ized shows as The Daily Show and The Colbert
Report. From Cronkite to Colbert makes the
case that rather than “fake news,” those shows
should be understood as a new kind of journal-
ism, one that has the potential to save the news
and reinvigorate the conversation of democracy
in today’s society.

The frst authoritative account of the little-

Chinese gold miners in Oregon’s Hells Canyon in

half of the 19th century.

Policymakers see counterinsurgency and counter-
narcotics policy as two sides of the same coin –
stop the fow of drug money, and the insurgency
will wither away. This timely book vividly shows
how that conventional wisdom is dangerously
wrongheaded. Vanda Felbab-Brown shows how
guerrilla and terrorist organizations – such as
the Taliban, Peru’s Shining Path, and Colombia’s
FARC – have learned to exploit illicit markets.
Aggressive efforts to suppress the drug trade
typically backfre by allowing insurgents to pose
as the population’s protectors and win further
legitimacy. A combination of laissez-faire toward
cultivation and aggressive pursuit of traffckers is
more likely to be fruitful.

Mia Leonin spent the frst sixteen years of her
life believing her father was dead. Shortly after
her sixteenth birthday, Leonin learned from her
mother that her father, a Cuban exile, was very
much alive and living in Florida. Her attempts to
contact him, however, were thwarted until four
years later, when she left home in search of her
roots. Her journey takes her to Miami, Colombia,
and Cuba, and her search for cultural identity
leads her to create memories, friendships, and
romances. She fnds moments of connection and
redemption, ending up in Havana not as a cultural
tourist but as an illegitimate daughter of Cuba
looking for validation.
Insightful, imaginative, and often poetic, Havana
and Other Missing Fathers is Mia Leonin’s recol-
lection of this journey and her longing to learn
more about her origins. In the end, she must
learn to accept the answers she discovers as well
as the questions that remain.
Mia Angela Leonin is a creative writing instructor
at the University of Miami. She is the author of

On March 15, 1939, Helen Waldstein’s father
snatched the last exit visa from a distracted
clerk to get his wife and child out of Prague.
The family left behind could only send letters
after the Nazis closed in. Through the war years,
letters kept coming to the southern Ontario farm
where Helen’s small family learned to speak
English, to be Canadian farmers, and to forget
they were Jewish.
Helen did not notice when the letters stopped
coming, but they surfaced intermittently until
she couldn’t ignore them anymore. Reading the
letters changed everything. As her past refused

Letters from the Lost
A Memoir of Discovery
Helen Waldstein Wilkes
June 14, 1903, was a typical, hot Sunday in
Heppner, a small farm town in northeastern
Oregon. People went to church, ate dinner,
and relaxed with family and friends. But late
that afternoon, calamity struck when a violent
thunderstorm brought heavy rain and hail to the
mountains and bare hills south of town.
In Calamity, Joann Byrd, a native of eastern
Oregon, carefully documents the poignant story
of this small farm town in northeastern Oregon
when one of every fve people in the prosper-
ous town of 1,300 would lose their lives, as the
foodwaters pulled apart and carried away nearly
everything in its path.
Calamity illustrates that even the smallest things
we do have consequences – good or bad. Byrd
draws on a wealth of primary sources, including a
moving collection of photographs, to paint a rare
picture of how a small town in the West coped
with disaster at the turn of the twentieth century.
Joann Byrd is a retired journalist who has
worked for a number of newspapers, including
the East Oregonian in Pendleton, Oregon, and
the Washington Post.

MEMOir
Awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920,
Knut Hamsun (1859-1952) was a towering fgure
of Norwegian letters. He was also a Nazi sympa-
thizer and supporter of the German occupation of
Norway during the Second World War.
In her incisive study of Hamsun, Monika Žagar
refuses to separate his political and cultural ideas
from an analysis of his highly regarded writing.
Inspecting a number of his works, she reveals the
ways in which messages of racism and sexism
appear in plays, fction, and none-too-subtle
nonfction produced by a prolifc author over the
course of his long career. In the process, Žagar
illuminates Norway’s long history of interaction
with peoples at home and abroad.
Monika Žagar is associate professor of Scandina-
vian studies at the University of Minnesota.

In recent years, archaeologists and Native
American communities have struggled to fnd
common ground not realizing that more than a
century ago a man of Seneca descent raised on
New york’s Cattaraugus Reservation, Arthur C.
Parker, joined the ranks of professional archaeol-
ogy. Until now, Parker’s life and legacy as the
frst Native American archaeologist have been
neither closely studied nor widely recognized. At
a time when heated debates about the control of
Native American heritage have come to dominate
archaeology, Parker’s experiences form a singular
lens to view the feld’s tangled history and
current predicaments with Indigenous peoples.

Within most disciplines, there are those who are
recognized by their colleagues as being excep-
tionally competent practitioners. These people
do their work in such a remarkable way as to
become a model for others. This book is based
on a study of the beliefs, actions, and interactions
of a group of extraordinary oncology nurses – the
nurses their peers would choose to have care for
them if they were diagnosed with cancer.
Perry’s weaving of narrative, comments, feld
notes, poetry, and photography creates a very
personal and unique perspective on nursing that
leaves the reader with a greater understanding of
the experience, and rewards, of caring for others.

The Eve Hypothesis, a dogma among research-
ers in human origins for the past two decades,
is coming under increasing challenge by a
new generation of Bone Readers. This group
of scholars study the earliest human remains,
their chemistry and DNA, their extinct foral and
faunal contemporaries, and the geologic layers in
which they were found. Focusing on anomalous
discoveries in Australia, the Pacifc islands, and
the Americas, these scholars are challenging the
reigning hypothesis of modern human origins.
Other hypotheses—about “hobbits,”
Neanderthals, and the Bering Straits—are equal-
ly under scrutiny. Two leading Bone Readers and
a science writer have penned a literate, authori-
tative summary of the current questions and
the minefeld of academic politics that surround
questioning anthropology’s most cherished
paradigms. Ideal for students in human origins

What makes a 17-year-old girl decide to wrap a
bomb around her body, walk into a supermarket,
and detonate it, killing herself and an 18-year
old girl shopping there? In this provocative and
important book, renowned anthropologist W.
Penn Handwerker shows that individual choices,
from the fatal to the mundane, are fundamentally
questions of culture – what it is, where it comes
from, and the complex ways it changes and
evolves. In accessible and engaging prose, he
walks readers through the process of how the
human imagination produces new things, shaped
by culture and experience but also constantly
evolving in unpredictable ways. He shows how
understanding cultural dynamics, which explain
one girl’s decision to murder and another girl’s
decision to shop, will help us address critical
policy questions, from reducing the likelihood
of terrorist attacks to responding to global
epidemics and addressing climate change.
W. Penn Handwerker is professor of
anthropology at the University of Connecticut.

For nearly ffty years artist and naturalist Tony
Angell has used Puget Sound’s natural diversity
as his palette. In this book, he describes the
living systems within the Sound and shares his
observations and encounters with the species
that make up the complex communities of the
Sound’s rivers, tidal fats, islands, and beaches:
the fedging fight of a young peregrine, an otter
playfully herding a small red rockfsh, the grasp
of a curious octopus. Angell goes on to explain
the methods he uses in his art. The shapes,
movements, patterns, and even temperatures
and smells that he experiences in the feld are all
brought to bear on his work. His drawings bring
clarity to his visual and emotional memories, and
his sculptures allow him to approach a memory
from many directions and retain that memory in
his hands. In all of his work, he lets the passion
and excitement of his discoveries drive his artistic
expression.
Tony Angell’s artworks are held in public and
private collections throughout the world. He is
the author of several books including Ravens,
Crows, Magpies, and Jays and Owls, and served
as Washington State Director of Environmental
Education for thirty years. He lives in Seattle.

In Chasing Molecules, Elizabeth Grossman shows
how ordinary items found in most American
homes are threatening our health and why new
innovations in chemistry could make day-to-day
life safer. Grossman, an acclaimed journalist
who brought national attention to the contami-
nants hidden in computers and other high-tech
electronics, now explores the promise of materi-
als that are “benign by design.“
There’s no question chemicals can be put to
ingenious use: making coats waterproof, pans
nonstick, and mascara glide. But these wondrous
materials can also cause cancer, interfere with
reproduction, even make us fat. Green chemistry
has the potential to end this trade-off. Ground-
breaking research is producing materials that
mimic, rather than pollute, nature. Through inter-
views with leading
scientists, Grossman gives us a frst look at this
fundamental transformation of everyday products.
The resulting story offers hope for a rarity at the
intersection of health, the environment, and indus-
try: a win-win.

This book makes a couple of remarkable claims.
The frst is that the greatest cultural achievement
in the mountain region of Western Canada may
be what has been preserved, not what has been
developed.
The second is that protecting the spine of the
Rocky Mountains will preserve crucial eco-
logical functions. Because the process of
ecosystem diminishment and species loss has
been slowed, an ecological thermostat has
been kept alive, which may well be an important
defence against future climate change impacts
in the Canadian west.

Economics sometimes seems to be stacked
against social, environmental, and individual well-
being. But it doesn’t have to be like this. A new
approach to economics – deriving as much from
Ruskin and Schumacher as from Keynes or Smith
– has begun to emerge. Skeptical about money
as a measure of success, this new economics
turns our assumptions about wealth and poverty
upside down. It shows us that real wealth can be
measured by increased well-being and environ-
mental sustainability rather than just having and
consuming more things.
This book is the frst accessible and straightfor-
ward guide to the new economics. It describes
the problems and bizarre contradictions in
conventional economics as well as the principles
of the emerging new economics, and it tells
the real-world stories of how new economics is
being successfully put into practice around the
world. An essential guide to understanding new
economics for all those who care about making
economics work for people and planet.

In this book, Prashant Vaze, an environmental
economist, distils and builds on his experience of
trying to live a low-carbon life in London. In doing
so he helps navigate the choices that confront
us all when making decisions about what to eat,
how to travel, and how to keep warm in the era of
climate change and economic turmoil. The book
is an irreverent but rigorous reference guide to
low-cost, low-carbon living for everyone in tough
times. Readers are taken through the choices of
three real people who are trying to decarbonize
on a budget: a 20-something starting out in work,
a father with two schoolchildren holding down a
hectic job, and a pensioner on a fxed income. It’s
brimming with up-to-date information on current
and future technologies, tips and ideas for every
budget for how to spend the least for the biggest
carbon reduction gain, and insight from the experi-
ences of people trying to live a low-carbon life.
Prashant Vaze is an environmental economist

to Hollywood flmmaker.
In Don’t Be Such a Scientist, he shares the

The key, he argues, is to stay true to the facts
while tapping into something more primordial,
more irrational, and ultimately more human.

The author describes the spectrum of ADHD, the

focuses on solutions, based around four rules.
Rule number one is keeping it positive: punish-
ments can change behaviour, but only positive
approaches can improve attitude. Rule number
two is keeping it calm: it’s diffcult thinking
clearly enough to solve problems logically if you
are feeling overwhelmed. Rule number three
is keeping it organized: this rule relates particu-
larly to the child’s school life. Rule number four
is to keep doing rules one to three. Finally, Dr.
Kutscher discusses the role of medication for
treating ADHD.
Realistic and optimistic, this book is the ideal

Over a period of fourteen years, Francesca
Bierens interviewed ten families of children
who were on the autism spectrum. This book
records their answers: how they felt, how they
coped, and what gave them strength and solace.
Each family discusses how they reacted when
they found out their child had autism, and their
feelings leading up to diagnosis. They share
their positive and negative experiences with
professionals, and describe the support that they
received, often from grandparents, respite care
givers, support groups, and other parents. Two
of the original children, now in their 20s, also talk
about the experience of growing up with autism,
and describe how their lives are now. Above
all, Bierens’ message, and that of the families
she interviews, is one of inspiration and hope,
showing that there is light, love, and laughter
along the way. Their stories should be read
by anyone who is affected by or working with
autism.

The act of self-harming is often alarming and
it can be diffcult to comprehend why people
choose to do this to themselves. By trying to
understand what self-harm is and why it is
chosen as a coping strategy, family members and
caregivers can have the confdence and courage
to be an invaluable support during what can be an
extremely stressful time for everyone involved.
This book will demonstrate why it is so important
for those who self-harm to be able to form a
reliable, trusting relationship with another person,
in order to begin a journey of self-awareness and
self-acceptance.
By challenging common misconceptions about
self-harm and advocating a framework for inter-
vention that is respectful and compassionate,
Getting to the Heart of Hurt will be indispens-
able for anyone who cares for an individual who
self-harms.
Sarah Currie delivers workshops on understand-
ing self-harm and has been involved in making a

Children and adults on the autism spectrum may
often behave in ways that cause diffculties for
themselves and for those who care for them.
This book offers effective, long-term strategies
to help resolve common challenging behaviours
such as physical aggression and self-injury.
Managing Family Meltdown also provides
possible explanations for these behaviours, and
offers a wealth of practical tips on how families
can tackle different kinds of challenging behav-
iour. The authors explore the difference between
managing and changing behaviour; how our own
behaviour can infuence the situation; and the
principles of Low Arousal and its application in a
family situation. Tried-and-tested ideas for inter-
vention are provided and illustrated by case
examples, and the pros and cons of medica-
tion are also discussed. This hands-on, practical
manual will be indispensable for families, care-
givers, and anyone involved with children and
adults with autism who need help with behavioral
or emotional challenges.

Many people will suffer from depression at
some time in their lives. New research shows
that Qigong, a traditional Chinese practice, can
be an effective treatment for depression and
can provide a good alternative or supplement to
medication in some cases.
Based on the same principles as Traditional
Chinese Medicine, Qigong works by promoting
the movement of health-giving energy along
the meridians of the body. The author encour-
ages the reader to identify their problems and
take action. Dr. Frances Gaik gives practical
advice that will help anyone with depression to
improve their mental health.
Managing Depression with Qigong provides a
guide to an effective and increasingly recogn-
ised form of treatment that will be invaluable to
people with depression and their families.
Frances Gaik is a licensed clinical professional
counselor in private practice in the western
suburbs of Chicago. She holds a doctorate in
Clinical Psychology from the Adler School of
Professional Psychology. Gaik is a long-term
meditator and Qigong practitioner who utilizes
alternative energy therapies as well as hypno-
sis in her therapeutic approach.

Research shows that Chinese medicine can
be very effective in supporting the treatment
of cancer by orthodox Western methods, and
is particularly effective in alleviating many of
the side effects of treatment. Henry McGrath
draws on his many years as a practitioner of
Traditional Chinese Medicine to explain how
Chinese medicine approaches cancer in terms of
understanding and treatment. He presents the
wide range of approaches that Chinese medicine
has to offer people with cancer, and offers practi-
cal strategies to promote the health of the body
as well as methods with which to cultivate the
mind, helping the patient develop both physical
and mental well-being. He covers a wide range
of treatments, giving readers a sound basis on
which to explore further specifc treatment.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Approaches to
Cancer will be an invaluable book for people with
cancer and the medical professionals who work
with them.
Henry McGrath studied oriental medicine
for nine years, obtaining diplomas in shiatsu,
acupuncture, and herbal medicine. He is currently

Body Intelligence offers a new understanding
of how the body works and leads the reader to
a greater sense of well-being and an enriched
sense of self.
The anatomy of the body is explored without
the complexity of medical terminology. Instead,
common descriptions are used along with a multi-
tude of images, allowing the reader to visualize
and work with different levels of the body.
Experiential exercises, guided meditations, and
movements are provided throughout the book,
helping the reader to develop improved levels
of health and body intelligence that are natural
and accessible all the time. As body intelligence
increases through these exercises, physical
changes occur and a new posture emerges,
followed by positive mental and emotional
shifts. People experiencing depression, fatigue,
emotional issues, stress and anxiety have the
potential to be relieved of their symptoms with
practice using this book as guidance.

A New History of
Aboriginal-White
Relations
John Sutton Lutz
Some Canadian
scholars are already
calling this work
“one of the most
important books on aboriginal history written
in Canada.” This very well could be the case.
Lutz provides a fresh perspective on Canada’s
history of Aboriginal-newcomer relations by
focusing on makúk, roughly translating as
“exchange” in a trading, cultural, linguistic,
and religious sense, and various resultant
misunderstandings. […] Lutz successfully
illustrates how the contemporary image of
the Indian as lazy and welfare dependent
originated only recently through misunder-
standings and particular views about labor
that were prevalent in European culture.

The Reluctant Land
describes the evolving pattern of settlement
and the changing relationships of people and
land in Canada from the end of the ffteenth
century to the Confederation years of the
late 1860s and early 1870s. It shows how
a deeply indigenous land was reconstituted
in European terms, and, at the same time,
how European ways were recalibrated in this
non-European space. It also shows how an
archipelago of scattered settlement emerged
out of an encounter with a parsimonious land,
and suggests how deeply this encounter
differed from an American relationship with
abundance.

small park in English

but had some of

The powerful images and thoughtful
metaphors in these short lyrics show readers
the connections between Canadian nature
(even within city limits) and the sublime,
especially in the overwhelming silence we
can sense outdoors – if we pay attention. The
poet helps us see natural phenomena around
us in a different light each time we read his

untouched wilderness, and the few inhabit-
ants of the area. Whether he is recalling
a winter snowshoe and dogsled trip or an

people who were part of the vast wilderness
of a different age.

In humanity’s

have evolved from
vulnerable creatures
clawing sustenance from Earth to a sophisti-
cated global society manipulating every inch
of it. In short, we have become the dominant

that threatens our own species? What can
we do to change the current trajectory
toward more climate change, increased
famine, and epidemic disease?
Renowned Stanford scientists Paul R. Ehrlich
and Anne H. Ehrlich believe that intelligently
addressing those questions depends on a
clear understanding of how we evolved and
how and why we’re changing the planet in
ways that darken our descendants’ future.

that takes over the city of Calgary for 10 days

examines a facet of the experience – from
the images on advertising posters to the
ritual of the annual parade. This study of the
Calgary Stampede as a social phenomenon
reveals the history and sociology of the city
of Calgary and a component of the social
construction of identity for western Canada
