Global environmental change is quickening, its
portents unsettling. When the air, land, and water
around us are different from what we have known,
how will we make sense of the “new normal” or,
more probably, a “cascade of new normals”?
Joy Parr tackles these questions by looking at local
examples from the recent past of people who have
had to cope with radical changes in habitats where
they lived and worked, and in which they expected
to persist. The lives of the people described
in her accounts were altered by megaprojects
(military training grounds, dams and re-engineered
waterways, chemical plants, and nuclear reactors)
and by environmental factors (new patterns in animal
husbandry practices and seasonal rains). in every
case, familiar worlds were lost and transformed so
thoroughly that long-time residents no longer knew
the place where they lived and could no longer be
confdent about where they were, and by implication,
who they were.
Sensing Changes is a timely and prescient work
by one of Canada’s premier historians. Parr offers
new perspectives on how humans make sense
of the world in the face of rapid environmental,
technological, and social change.

EnvironmEntal studiEs What is Water?

The book demonstrates, in a clear and concise
fashion, the ways in which contemporary social
relationships with water have constituted a crisis ....
The subject is of fundamental importance and the
author’s emphasis on the need to posit environmental
concerns within a socio-natural understanding is vital.
– alex Loftus, Department of Geography, University
of London
Taking an historical approach to the modern concept
of water, this volume tackles the history of an idea
whose consequences have helped produce a global
crisis.
Jamie Linton argues that modern Western society
tends to understand water as a scientifc abstraction
– as merely H20 or the substance occurring in the
hydrologic cycle. We have lost sight of its essential
fecundity and stripped it of its wider environmental,
social, and cultural contexts. This removal, or
abstraction, has given modern society license to treat
water as something that may dammed, diverted, and
manipulated with impunity. The water crisis can be
averted, Linton concludes, by deliberately reinvesting
water with social content.

By seeking and revealing the cultural meanings of
“fresh air” and “wilderness camping,” and of the
activities in which campers engaged ... Sharon Wall
has produced a multifaceted study that has much to
say to historians of the environment. Time and again,
The Nurture of Nature reveals the contradictory
qualities of the summer camp, even as it offers new
insights into the ways in which Canadians struggled
to fnd meaning in modernity.
– from the foreword by Graeme Wynn
The Nurture of Nature represents a major study of an
important but neglected subject. It is an important
contribution to the study of leisure and recreation
in Canada, to the understanding of the character of
modernity, and to the history of summer camps.

The industrialization of Canada’s subarctic relied
upon the region’s large northwestern lakes:
Winnipeg, athabasca, Great slave, and Great Bear.
Between 1921 and 1960, these lakes comprised
a seam in the Canadian interior where industrial
economies took root, transgressing political
geographies and superseding the historically
dominant fur trade. The state and private enterprise
imported southern scientists and sojourning
labourers to work the Northwest, and its industrial
history bears these newcomers’ imprint.
The Industrial Transformation of Subarctic Canada
reveals the history of human impact upon the North.
it provides a baseline, grounded in historical and
scientifc evidence, for measuring environmental
change in the subarctic.

Landing Native Fisheries reveals the contradictions
and consequences of an indian land policy premised
on access to fsh, on one hand, and a program of
fsheries management intended to open the resource
to newcomers, on the other. Beginning with the frst
treaties signed on vancouver island between 1850
and 1854, Douglas Harris maps the connections
between the colonial land policy and the law
governing the fsheries. in so doing, Harris rewrites
the history of colonial dispossession in British
Columbia, offering a new and nuanced examination
of the role of law in the consolidation of power within
the colonial state.

This book is a solid contribution to the political
science of public consultation; a strong message to
the Canadian nuclear industry; and a sophisticated
source of support for individuals and groups who
wish to challenge basic assumptions we should
never take for granted.
– Peter stoett, Department of Political science,
Concordia University
as oil reserves decline and the environment takes
centre stage in public policy discussions, the merits
and dangers of nuclear power and nuclear waste
management are once again being debated. Nuclear
Waste Management in Canada provides a critical
counterpoint to the favourable position of government
and industry by examining not only the technical
but also the social and ethnical aspects of the issue.
What do frequently used terms such as safety, risk,
and acceptability really mean? How and why did the
public consultation process in Canada fail to address
ethical and social issues? and what is the signifcance
and potential of a public consultation process that
involves diverse interests, epistemologies, and actors,
including aboriginal peoples?

A fascinating historical account of Soviet society, and
of the chaos of the 1990s resulting from the collapse
of Soviet power, as seen from the most remote
region of the Soviet Union ... Clearly and well written,
this is an important story telling how a contemporary
people dealt with events beyond their experience and
control.
– Robert McGhee, Literary Review of Canada,
vol.16, No.10, December 2008
Deeply researched and eloquently written, settlers
on the edge shines light onto hitherto unexplored
territory in the literature of the Arctic, namely the
tortured birth and mercurial fortunes of Russia?s
large arctic settler population. Thompson reveals
how the orphan children of a grand Soviet project to
“civilize” the North wrought from their post-Soviet
misfortunes a new sense of themselves. The picture
that emerges – of a people of the arctic landscape –
makes an important and long-overdue contribution to
our understanding of who belongs in the North.

Eau Canada
The Future of Canada’s Water
Edited by karen bakker
Canadians love our
vast and beautiful
expanses of water
but know next
to nothing about
them. eau Canada
is a myth-busting,
fact-based,
comprehensive
collection on all
facets of our water
that every Canadian
should own. Without the knowledge
contained in this book, we could lose the
right to control our water in an increasingly
thirsty world.
– Maude Barlow, National Chairperson of
the Council of Canadians and co-author
of Blue Gold
Looking at the state of Canada’s water
resources and Canadian water policy, eau
Canada gives us the facts about both, and
shows what we need to do to care for this
priceless resource better. Lots of surprising
information. Lots of good ideas. Well
written. What more could you ask for? A
good book to buy.
