the Canadian War on Queers national security as sexual regulation
Gary Kinsman and Patrizia Gentile
For nearly fifty years, from the 1950s to as recently as the late 1990s, agents of the Canadian state spied on, interrogated, and harassed gays and lesbians in a series of so-called national security campaigns. The Canadian War on Queers traces this history, revealing acts of state repression and forms of social resistance that raise questions about just whose security was being protected. • Documents the spy tactics, intimidation methods, and technological tools – such as the notorious “Fruit Machine” – used by the RCMP and other enforcements groups. • Describes the forms of resistance to these measures, from non-cooperation and letter campaigns to rallies and public protests in Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto. • Examines for the first time official security documents obtained through Access to Information requests. • Presents many interviews with gays, lesbians, civil servants, and high-ranking officials who were involved in and directly affected by the national campaigns. • Offers ways of understanding, and resisting, contemporary rationales for similar types of security campaigns, like the “war on terror” and the “war on drugs,” showing how the State can create an “enemy” or “threat” within its own citizenry through particular ideologies and discourses. Beautifully realized, this is an unbelievable fifty-year journey documenting a critical part of queer Canadian history. Not only is it impeccably researched but it’s told through the voices of our community. – Janine Fuller, manager of Little Sister’s Bookstore and co-author of Restricted Entry: Censorship on Trial Passionately written and thoroughly researched … This book not only deserves to be read, it needs to be read. – Steve Hewitt, author of Snitch! A History of the Modern Intelligence Informer Compelling personal stories illuminate this impeccably researched analysis of the use of national security legislation to wage a war against lesbian and gay Canadians during the Cold War years. – Lynne Fernie, filmmaker, co-director of Forbidden Love and Fiction and Other Truths A powerful chronicle of the appalling campaigns of fear and lies that shattered and destroyed the lives of countless gay and lesbian Canadians in the name of national security. – Svend Robinson, former NDP Member of Parliament for Burnaby

Canada's Voice
the public life of John Wendell holmes adam Chapnick It is hard to imagine a person who embodied the ideals of postwar Canadian foreign policy more than John Wendell Holmes. Holmes joined the foreign service in 1943, headed the Canadian Institute of International Affairs from 1960 to 1973, and, as a professor of international relations, mentored a generation of students and scholars. This book charts the life of a diplomat and public intellectual who influenced both how scholars and statespeople abroad viewed Canada and how Canadians saw themselves on the world stage. John W. Holmes had more impact on the thinking of careful observers of Canada's foreign policy than any other Canadian "scholar-diplomat." Adam Chapnick's balanced, thoughtful, and highly readable account of his "public life" tells us why. It is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Canada's post-1945 diplomatic practice and how it came to be interpreted by government officials and independent observers alike. – Denis stairs, Professor Emeritus of Political Science, Dalhousie University

Kiss the kids for dad, don't forget to write
the Wartime letters of george timmins, 1916–18 edited by y.a. bennett Between 1916 and 1918, Lance-Corporal George Timmins, a British-born soldier who served in the Canadian Expeditionary Force, wrote faithfully to his wife and children. Sixty-three letters and four fragments survived. These letters tell the compelling story of a man who, while helping his fellow Canadians make history at Vimy, Lens, Passchendaele, and Amiens, used letters home to remain a presence in the lives of his wife and children, and who drew strength from his family to appreciate life’s simple pleasures. Timmins’s letters offer a rare glimpse into the experiences and relationships, the quiet heroism, of ordinary soldiers on the Western Front. Kiss the kids for dad offers us new insight into the multiple themes and narratives that underpin the First World War experience: the role of the civilian-soldier in war, the horror and brutality of trench warfare, the boredom and banality of military service. Timmins's letters, framed within a solid historical background, also reveal his personal struggle with having left his family behind to fend for themselves in Canada. – tim cook, author of Shock Troops: Canadians Fighting the Great War, 1917-1918 (volume 2)

Pearson's Peacekeepers
canada and the united nations emergency force, 1956–67 Michael K. Carroll, foreword by robert bothwell In 1957, Lester Pearson won the Nobel Peace Prize for creating the United Nations Emergency Force during the Suez crisis. The award launched Canada’s love affair with, and reputation for, peacekeeping. Pearson’s Peacekeepers explores the reality behind the rhetoric by offering a detailed account of the UNEF’s decade-long effort to keep peace along the Egyptian-Israeli border. This nuanced account of Canada’s participation in the UNEF challenges perceived notions of Canadian identity and history. Pearson's Peacekeepers brilliantly sums up the significance of the UNEF experience, which was both a failure and a wonderful achievement. Carroll's book is a major original contribution to the field. He shows that, although a so-called "classic" example of peacekeeping, UNEF has far more relevance to current Canadian operations in response to international crises than is generally thought. – W.a.b. Douglas, official historian of the Canadian Armed Forces

Veterans with a Vision the history of canada's War blinded in peace and War
serge Marc durflinger
We know something about our war dead but almost nothing about our war wounded. Veterans with a Vision provides a vibrant, poignant, and very human history of Canada’s war-blinded veterans and of the organization they founded in 1922, the Sir Arthur Pearson Association of War Blinded. Serge Durflinger details the veterans’ process of civil re-establishment, physical and psychological rehabilitation, and social and personal coping and describes their public advocacy for government pension entitlements, job retraining, and other social programs. This book captures the spirit of perseverance that permeated the veterans’ community and highlights the impacts made by the war blinded as advocates for all Canadian veterans and for all blind citizens. serGe MarC durFlinGer is an associate professor of history at the University of Ottawa. He is the author of Fighting from Home: The Second World War in Verdun, Quebec, and co-editor of War and Society in Post-Confederation Canada.

I was unlucky enough to get in the way of one of the shrapnel bullets. I felt a slight sting in my right temple as though pricked by a red-hot needle – and then the world became black. Dawn was now breaking, but night had sealed my eyes. – James rawlinson, blinded at Vimy, 1917

Books written about the conflict record major political decisions and their results; they speak of generals, and of heroes. There is a paucity of literary tribute to those who offered their youth to war; nor are there books which tell of the disabled, the war blinded, the amputee, the burnt-out veteran. – David Dorward, blinded in Sicily, 1943

the technological imperative in Canada
an intellectual history edited by r. douglas Francis This wide-ranging, engaging book examines the ideas of Anglo Canadian theorists who saw technology as a new imperative that would either enhance or threaten the moral imperative. From the mid-nineteenth century onward, advocates argued that technology, as a moral force, would strengthen the ties that bound Canada to Britain and Western civilization, while opponents saw technology as a source of American power that threatened Canadian independence. The Technological Imperative in Canada offers new insights into the ideas of influential Canadian theorists of technology such as Harold Innis and Marshall McLuhan and introduces readers to the ideas and perceptions of lesser-known but key figures such as Sandford Fleming, Stephen Leacock, and E.J. Pratt. This seminal book revises the entrenched notion that Anglo Canadian thought has been dominated by the moral imperative. It will appeal to anyone who wants a Canadian perspective on a critical subject.

becoming native in a Foreign land
sport, Visual culture, and identity in montreal, 1840-85 Gillian Poulter How did British colonists in Victorian Montreal come to think of themselves as "native Canadian"? This richly illustrated work reveals that colonists adopted, then appropriated, Aboriginal and French Canadian activities such as hunting, lacrosse, snowshoeing, and tobogganing. In the process, they constructed visual icons that were recognized at home and abroad as distinctly "Canadian." The new Canadian nationality mimicked indigenous characteristics but, ultimately, rejected indigenous players, and championed the interests of white, middle-class, Protestant males who used their newly acquired identity to dominate the political realm. English Canadian identity was not formed solely by emulating what was British, this book shows that it gained ground by usurping what was indigenous in a foreign land. This book, both innovative and provocative, will have a significant impact on our understanding of the relationship between sport and national identity construction in Canada. It not only will add to the scholarly debate in the field, it will help shape and direct such debate in the future. – Colin D. Howell, author of Blood, Sweat, and Cheers: Sport and the Making of Modern Canada

urban PlanninG

thinking Planning and urbanism
beth Moore Milroy When manufacturers and retailers vacate traditional locations, they leave holes in a city's fabric that signal a shifting urban-industrial terrain. Who should mend these spaces, and how should they approach the problem? Using Toronto's Dundas Square and surrounding area as a case study, Thinking Planning and Urbanism meticulously reconstructs the redevelopment process to explore the theories and practices used. It traces the labyrinth of competing interests that can sideline and nearly overwhelm the public planning function. In these circumstances, Moore Milroy concludes that practising planners are marooned by planning theories that begin from the premise that urban space is a social construction and only secondarily a function of technology and aesthetics.

Finding dahshaa
self-government, social suffering, and aboriginal policy in canada stephanie irlbacher-Fox, with a foreword by Dene national chief bill erasmus Just as dahshaa – a rare type of dried, rotted spruce wood – is essential to the Dene moosehide-tanning process, self-determination and the alleviation of social suffering are necessary to Indigenous survival in the Northwest Territories. But is self-government an effective path to selfdetermination? Finding Dahshaa shows where self-government negotiations between Canada and the Dehcho, Délînê, and Inuvialuit and Gwich’in peoples have gone wrong and offers, through descriptions of tanning practices that embody principles and values central to self-determination, an alternative model for negotiations. This accessible book, which includes a foreword by Dene National Chief Bill Erasmus, is the first ethnographic study of self-government negotiations in Canada.

First nations, First thoughts
the impact of indigenous thought in canada edited by annis May timpson Countless books and articles have traced the impact of colonialism and public policy on Canada’s First Nations, but few have explored the impact of Aboriginal thought on on public discourse and policy development in Canada. First Nations, First Thoughts brings together Aboriginal and nonAboriginal scholars who cut through the prevailing orthodoxy to reveal Indigenous thinkers and activists as a pervasive presence in diverse political, constitutional, and cultural debates and arenas, including urban spaces, historical texts, public policy, and cultural heritage preservation. This innovative, thought-provoking collection contributes to the decolonization process by encouraging us to imagine a stronger, fairer Canada, one in which Aboriginal self-government and expression can be fully realized. This is a luminous collection of voices that reveals the power of Indigenous thought and that must be read to comprehend the transformation of Canadian thought and the spirit of the Indigenous renaissance. – Sákéj Henderson, University of Saskatchewan

identity/difference Politics
how Difference is produced, and Why it matters rita dhamoon Theories of liberal multiculturalism have come to dominate debates about identity and difference politics in contemporary western political theory. This book offers a nuanced critique of these debates by switching the focus from culture to power. Issues of power are examined through accounts of meaning-making – processes through which meanings of difference are produced, organized, and regulated. Other forms of identity/difference such as ableism, gender, and heteronormativity establish Dhamoon’s alternative theoretical framework, revealing that an exclusive preoccupation with culture can dissolve into essentialism – which too often provides a rationale for state regulation of groups deemed to be too different. Dhamoon develops an "account of meaningmaking" that attunes us to the complexities of power as it interfaces with cultural patterns. With new and compelling case studies, she moves us out of the linguistic focus of Kymlicka and Taylor in Canada and the religious/ethnic focus of many American tracts. – Hawley Fogg-Davis, author of The Ethics of Transracial Adoption

opening doors Wider
Women's political engagement in canada edited by sylvia bashevkin From the days of the fur trade through the contemporary period, women have played important roles in the public life of Canada. Until the 1970s, however, these contributions were generally overlooked. Opening Doors Wider looks at the progress made in the last forty years to raise the profile of women's involvement in public life. This book focuses on two questions. First, are the doors to participation presently open wider than they were in the past? Second, how can these doors be opened wider, both in terms of real-world participation and our understanding of public engagement? These tightly argued writings shed new light on the public involvement of women in one of the world's most stable democracies.

In 2001, he was elected prime minister of Thailand on a single-minded promise to accelerate the nation to first-world status through unrestrained capitalist growth. There followed four landslide elections, a military coup, a demonstration lasting half a year, assassination plots, and the occupation of Bangkok's international airport. In 2009, Thaksin urged thousands of supporters to revolution, provoking days of street fighting and the biggest-ever domestic operation by the Thai army. This expanded second edition includes four new chapters and a conclusion that trace in detail the protracted story of Thaksin's downfall.

india, china, and asia's growing presence in the middle east Geoffrey Kemp While Western economies struggle, industry and development are exploding in China and India. And the world’s two most populous nations are making a footprint in other global regions. That footprint is especially important in the Middle East, an economic and geopolitical lynchpin. The East Moves West details the growing interdependence of the Middle East and Asia and projects the likely outcomes of this evolving relationship. Geoffrey Kemp, a veteran analyst of global security and political economy, compares and contrasts Indian and Chinese involvement in the Middle East. What does the emergence of these Asian giants – with their increasingly huge need for energy – mean for the future of global security and trade?

In Journey into America, the author travels throughout the United States speaking to ordinary citizens, Muslims and nonMuslims alike, trying to discern exactly what American identity is. He explores how Muslims have historically fit into American life and how they have interacted with other Americans, including members of other minority religions. This book also reveals how the US Muslim experience, and the entire American experience, has changed over the years, particularly in the wake of the events of September 11, 2001. Ahmed uncovers not only the complexity of American identity, but he also finds, as anticipated by Thomas Jefferson, a pluralist society.

a Woman of Valour
the biography of marie-louise bouchard labelle Claire trépanier The biography of Marie-Louise Bouchard Labelle tells of a young Canadian woman from a humble background at the turn of the twentieth century. She discovers love with the priest of her village, a man thirty-three years her senior. After three children and fifteen years of a happy life together, her spouse returns to the priesthood, just before the Great Depression. Trépanier narrates this brave woman's struggle to raise their children alone as a "widow," and raises questions about the mandatory celibacy of Catholic priests and the status of women in the Catholic church. This is the biography of an extraordinary woman who had the courage to fully embrace her love for a priest, knowing all the consequences. The author tells us the story of Marie-Louise Bouchard Labelle with respect and admiration. Thank you to Claire Trépanier for this touching narration and thank you also to Marie-Louise's children and grandchildren who told the author the story of their mother and grandmother. – Laurier L.

It is the true story of Evelyn Searle Hess, who, in her late fifties, walked away from the world of modern conveniences to build a new life with her husband on twenty acres of wild land in the foothills of Oregon’s Coast Range mountains. To the Woods describes Evelyn’s day-to-day struggles, failures, and discoveries. It tracks the natural history of place through the seasons. It wrestles with issues like human impact on the ecology of our planet. Hess's careful attention to detail, her extensive knowledge of local flora and fauna, and her thoughtful philosophical mediations add richness to her engaging prose. To the Woods will appeal to anyone interested in the environment, flora, natural history, and alternative lifestyles. Evelyn Hess’s enterprise, it seems to me, is one of Thoreauvian simplicity. She and her husband, at considerable age, with humility and pluck, lived many years in a way that shows us possibilities we haven’t imagined for ourselves. – John Daniel, author of The Far Corner and Rogue River Journal

China Watcher
confessions of a peking tom richard baum This audacious and illuminating memoir reflects on forty years of learning about and interacting with the People's Republic of China – from the height of Maoism during the author's UC Berkeley student days in the volatile 1960s through globalization. Anecdotes illustrate the alternately peculiar, frustrating, fascinating, and risky activity of China watching – the process by which outsiders gather and decipher official and unofficial information to figure out what's really going on behind China's veil of political secrecy and propaganda. Baum writes entertainingly, and tells with witty stories about people, places, and eras. This book is an enjoyable description of the personalities and political forces that shaped the modern field of China studies.

nothing like sunshine
a black-Jewish friendship in the aftermath of the mlK assassination ben Kamin Race, coming of age in the 1960s, a forbidden friendship, and a deep misunderstanding: this is a story that spans a four-decade search for a lost high school chum in an America painfully evolving from the blood of MLK to the promise of Barack Obama. In the watershed year of 1968, Kamin was fifteen, impressionable, sentimental about his country, and frightened of America’s civic turmoil and its obsession with Vietnam. He and a friend – a brash, funny, tuneful African American classmate named Clifton Fleetwood – were inseparable at school until April 5, 1968, the day after King was murdered in Memphis. This book is about Kamin’s search for Clifton, for America, and for the key to understanding what race relations really meant in the United States.

renewing black intellectual history
the ideological and material foundations of african american thought adolph reed, Jr. and Kenneth W. Warren Reflecting critically on the discipline of African American studies is a complicated undertaking. Making sense of the black American experience requires situating it within the larger cultural, political-economic, and ideological dynamics that shape American life. Renewing Black Intellectual History moves away from privileging racial commonality as the fulcrum of inquiry in favour of observing the quality of the accounts scholars have rendered of black American life. From Emancipation to Obama, with excursions into the Jim Crow era, Black Power radicalism, and the Reagan revolt, this book maps the changing conditions of black political practice and experience and demonstrates how the discrete problems facing black Americans have been shaped by both politics and scholarly fashion.

steeped in history
the art of tea edited by beatrice hohenegger After water, tea is the most frequently consumed beverage on the face of the earth. It has played a variety of striking and often paradoxical roles on the world stage – an ancient health remedy, an element of cultural practice, and a source of spiritual insights. It has also been a catalyst for brutal international conflict, drug trafficking, crushing taxes, and horrific labour conditions. In Steeped in History, eleven distinguished historians and art historians cross oceans and continents to trace the impact of tea from its discovery in ancient China to the present-day tea plantations of Assam. In so doing, they examine the multitude of ways in which tea has figured in the visual and literary arts.

Kitchen literacy
how We lost Knowledge of Where food comes from and Why We need to get it back ann Vileisis Kitchen Literacy chronicles profound changes in how we have shopped, cooked, and thought about food over the last two centuries. While the distance between farm and table grew, we went from knowing the specific stories of our food’s origins to relying instead on advertisers’ claims and government assurances. We were not always so clueless about what we were eating. But now, convenient industrialized eating has resulted in a host of health and environmental problems, including food-borne pathogens and water pollution. By revealing the history of how we’ve known – and not known – our foods, Kitchen Literacy promises to make us think differently about what we eat. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in food. Kitchen Literacy performs a valuable service in reminding readers that we were not always so clueless when it came to making food choices. – The Washington Post

islands of Genius
the bountiful mind of the autistic, acquired, and sudden savant darold treffert Savant syndrome is a rare condition in which individuals with developmental disorders have one or more areas of expertise, ability, or brilliance – "islands of genius" – that exist in contrast with their overall limitations. In this fascinating book, Dr. Darold Treffert explores recently-discovered phenomena such as "genetic memory," the capacity of some individuals to "know" things they never learned, and "acquired savantism" – instances in which a neuro-typical person unexpectedly and spectacularly develops savant-like abilities following a trauma such as a head injury or stroke. Above all, his message is that prodigy and genius should be celebrated and nurtured. This book is for clinicians, parents, teachers, therapists, and others who care for, and about, individuals with savant syndrome.

a parents' guide to the non-Violent resistance approach Carmelite avraham Krehwinkel and david aldridge Adapting principles of non-violent resistance originally advocated by Mahatma Gandhi, this book outlines non-violent de-escalation techniques that will empower the parent and unburden a distressed child. As effective as it is original, the non-violent approach equips parents with the skills they need. It explains that by setting reasonable and achievable goals, avoiding violent reactions, and asking for help when necessary, parents can regain control and authority. Case studies are used throughout the book to demonstrate how the approach can be used to reach more successful places with unhappy and disruptive children of all ages, and deal with problematic behaviour in everyday life.

the nature of Gold
an environmental history of the alaska/Yukon gold rush Kathryn Morse, Foreword by William Cronon In this first and authoritative environmental history of the gold rush, Kathryn Morse tells the intriguing story of the yukon-Alaska gold rush – how the miners got to the Klondike, the mining technologies they employed, and the complex networks by which they obtained food, clothing, and tools. With a flair for the quirky detail and the revealing anecdote, she also details the political and economic debates surrounding the valuation of gold and the emerging industrial economy that exploited its extraction. The profound economic and cultural transformations that supported the Alaska-yukon gold rush ultimately reverberate to modern times. This is a compelling and complex tale of this famous part of northern history. A wonderfully compelling account of what it actually felt like to pack up and head to the Yukon. Scholars will find it provocative and deep, but all readers will find it absorbing, touching, funny. – William McKibben

seeking refuge
birds and landscape of the pacific flyway robert M. Wilson, foreword by William cronon Seeking Refuge examines the development and management of refuges in the wintering range of migratory birds along the Pacific Flyway. The Pacific Flyway is the westernmost of the four major North American bird migration routes and millions of birds travel it each year to winter and summer ranges. In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the farmlands along the flyway were irrigated using the wetlands, and as a result the US Fish and Wildlife Service established refuges within these radically transformed landscapes in order to sustain migratory birds. In a time when global warming promises to compound the stress on water and migratory species, this book demonstrates the need to foster landscapes where both wildlife and people can thrive. The author's skill in examining the interplay between wild birds, their increasingly manufactured habitats, and the varied human institutions responsible for altering them makes for a compelling story that readers will find fascinating. – William K.Wyckoff, Montana State University

how a living planet survives climate change Melanie lenart In this insightful and highly readable work, scientist and award-winning journalist Melanie Lenart examines the latest scientific knowledge on climate change, including Gaia theory, which holds that the Earth has some degree of climate control “built in.” As she points out, stronger hurricanes and larger floods in recent years actually help cool the ocean surface and clear the air of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. If we allow Earth’s natural defense systems, including wetlands and forests, to flourish, the planet will no longer need to rely on the cooling effects of these natural disasters. Life in the Hothouse is essential reading for anyone interested in the alarming changes affecting our planet.

Prosperity without Growth
economics for a finite planet tim Jackson Can humanity prosper without economic growth? If so, what form should our prosperity take – consumption and affluence, or wellbeing and happiness? In this explosive new book, Tim Jackson – a top sustainability adviser to the UK government – offers a compelling analysis of the most profound dilemma confronting the twenty-first century: economic growth is unsustainable, but "de-growth" is unstable. Instead, Jackson argues, we must reconfigure our economic machine, and deliver prosperity for all, without growth. Here, for those who want to be part of the most important conversation of our times, is a vision of our capability to flourish as human beings within the ecological limits of a finite planet. Fulfilling this vision is simply the most urgent task of our generation. Provokes official thought on the unthinkable. – Herman Daly
tiM JaCKson is the UK's Sustainable Development Commission’s economics commissioner and an adviser to Gordon Brown. He is also a professor of sustainable development at the University of Surrey and director of the ESRC Research Group on Lifestyles, Values and Environment (RESOLVE) .

the thomson Collection at the art Gallery of ontario

Ken Thomson was no mere trophy gatherer. A man of passionate commitment and of wideranging cultural curiosity, the late Lord Thomson of Fleet (1923-2006) began a half-century of collecting in 1953 and continued to do so until the very end of his life. The Thomson Collection has drawn the respect of museum curators worldwide. In terms of quantity and quality, the collection’s body of Canadian art has no equal; and a number of works, principal among them The Massacre of the Innocents, the masterpiece of Rubens’s early maturity, are of truly international significance. As the most important private art collection in Canada, it will hugely extend the holdings of the Art Gallery of Ontario. Amongst its European works is the fabulous 12th-century Malmesbury reliquary casket, an extraordinary selection of medieval ivories, and a fine group of portrait miniatures. A large and varied group of ship models is an intriguing facet of the Collection. This set of five catalogues is available as a slip-covered set for $200.00. All titles, including the set: U.S. and Canada Rights only

Electing a Diverse Canada is a “must read”and a potential classic in its field. Demographic profiles of individual cities and their elected representatives are compiled and analyzed by scholars with intimate knowledge of local politics. A unifying focus and methodology (including a common survey) provide powerful tools for understanding the general patterns of minority representation in Canada and its unique features in our major urban centres. – Linda Gerber, co-author of Sociology (6th edition) 2009, 304 pages, 6 x 9" 978-0-7748-1486-7 Pb $29.95

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 aficionados and anyone interested in the history of gender, race, and culture in Canadian or colonial society. 2009, 240 pages, 6 x 9" 978-0-7748-1576-5 Pb $32.95

Motivate to Communicate!

Canada and the United States. Two nations, one border, same continent. AntiAmerican sentiment in Canada is well documented, but what have Americans had to say about their northern neighbour? Allan examines how the American media has portrayed Canada from Confederation to the Obama inauguration. By examining major events that have tested bilateral relations, Bomb Canada tracks the history of anti-Canadianism in the US.

What Parents and Professionals Should Know About the Pre-Teen and Teenage years shana nichols, Gina Marie Moravcik, and samara Pulver tetenbaum

This book makes a couple of remarkable claims. The first 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 ecological 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.

In 1939, Helen Waldstein’s family left Prague for Canada where they learned to speak English, became farmers, and forgot they were Jewish. The family they left behind could only send letters after the Nazis closed in. Through the war years, letters kept coming to their southern Ontario farm. As her past refused to remain silent, Helen followed the trail of letters back to Europe. In this book, she has interwoven their stories and her own in an engrossing narrative of suffering and rescue, survivor guilt, and overcoming obstacles to intergenerational dialogue about a traumatic past.
