MESSAGE FROM THE PUBLISHERS
“Corporate America is in fabulous shape,” the chief executive of JPMorgan Chase told a meeting of the Business Council. Non-financial firms have accumulated more cash “… than at any other time in the past half century. They are flush, in fighting-trim and … fabulous.” — Globe and Mail, Saturday October 15, 2010 What? Aren’t we living in a time of dire economic crisis — in Canada, as well as in the entire western capitalist world? Unemployment is stubbornly high, consumers are not spending, corporations are neither investing nor hiring. Where did big business get all this cash? In late 2008, we were told that we, citizens and taxpayers, had to bail out big business … and it was big business that was bailed out. Not the people who lost their jobs and houses, not the small businesses that went bankrupt, but the banks and the financial and mortgage companies that precipitated the latest crisis of capitalism. If we didn’t fund a huge stimulus spending, we were told, we’d be stuck with high unemployment, lack of consumer spending, corporations that would neither invest nor hire. Seems we only got what the massive spending was to avoid. The Canadian federal government spent our way into a $50 billion plus deficit. The deficits of provincial and municipal governments add billions to the total. And many Canadian and U.S. citizens followed our political leaders into this attempt to save an un-savable economic system. Seems the money has been transferred from the majority of citizens to the bank accounts of big business. Governments did for the corporations what the big corporations tried to do for themselves, but failed. Now, governments are warning that their spending has to stop. Deficits are getting so high as to threaten to bring whole countries down. We are being told that it is time to tighten belts. Government debt and deficit will bring on more economic crisis. This sounds so familiar. What can we expect when governments reduce their deficits? It will almost certainly be by cutting back on those things that are important to the citizens who supported the call to save those who were “too big to fail.” We can expect cuts to health, education, to spending for disabled people and the unemployed, nothing for adequate shelter — you can bet your bottom dollar it won’t be bringing corporate taxes and taxes on the wealthy back to fair levels, it won’t be ending the $1.5 billion subsidies paid to oil companies in Canada … More importantly, it won’t be forcing those big corporations who are sitting on mountains of cash to use it in socially responsible ways — investing in our communities, in the things we need, in good jobs. Instead, they will be allowed to sit on it until they devise some other derivative, sub-prime scheme on which to gamble our money. Then, the crisis cycle will start all over again. An in/famous social philosopher put it so clearly over 160 years ago: “The executive of the modern state is but a committee for managing the common affairs of the whole bourgeoisie.” His observation, made long ago, is still right on the money today. So were his prescriptions: we need to end our economic reliance on the whims and interests of those “too big to fail.” We at Fernwood Publishing think that there has to be another way. It is our goal to participate in forging a humane, fair and sustainable economic and social world. We do this through our publications. We invite you to join with us in developing the way forward. In closing, we pay tribute to one of Canada’s preminent scholars and activists. Patricia Monture passed away on Wednesday November 17. Trisha was a militant advocate for Aboriginal rights in Canada, and wrote leading insights on Indigenous theory, law and governance, and social and political inequality. She was an inspiration to all of us. She will be greatly missed. The Publishers at Fernwood

Media Mediocrity — Waging War Against Science
How the Television Makes Us Stoopid!
We have all, at some point, seen science in action on television. Whether it was a program about disasters or weather, nature or the universe, a science commentator, even a crime show depicting forensic evidence — we have all gleaned tidbits of scientific information while being entertained by our televisions. Or have we? From science channels and documentaries to fictional and children’s programming, television brings a myriad of scientific discoveries and theories into the homes of people around the world. But how accurately do these programs represent science? In Media Mediocrity, television producer and broadcaster Richard Zurawski argues that the science we learn on television is inaccurate, misleading and sometimes even dangerous. Dealing with issues such as tobacco consumption, global warming and intelligent design, Media Mediocrity examines how television producers’ pursuit of ratings and profit trump any desire to provide the audience with an accurate knowledge of science — and argues that there are real consequences for this lack of knowledge. Four out of five viewers gather the bulk of their scientific knowledge from television, making television an important intermediary between society and its understanding of science. If television gives us misleading — or blatantly false — scientific information, how can we hope to make informed decisions about scientific issues? Equally importantly, who is it that is feeding us this false science? And what do they gain from doing so? If you think your TV has made you an expert, then read this book — and think again. RICHARD ZURAWSKI is a meteorologist, documentary film producer, TV host, writer, university lecturerer, public speaker and media expert and personality. He is the author of Richard Zurawski’s Book of Maritime Weather and The Maritime Book of Climate Change. He lives in Halifax with his wife, Susan, and two border collies, Patch and Tasha. pb 9781552664001 $24.95 192pp Rights: World / April

Good Places to Live
Poverty and Public Housing in Canada
Public housing projects are stigmatized and stereotyped as bad places to live, as havens of poverty, illegal activity and violence. In many cities they are being bulldozed, ostensibly for these reasons but also because the land on which they are located has become so valuable. In Good Places to Live, Jim Silver argues that the problems with which it is so often associated are not inherent to public housing but are the result of structural inequalities and neoliberal government policies. This book urges readers to reconsider the fate of public housing, arguing that urban poverty — what Silver calls spatially concentrated racialized poverty — is not solved by razing public housing. On the contrary, public housing projects rebuilt from within, based on communities’ strengths and supported by meaningful public investment could create vibrant and healthy neighbourhoods while maintaining much-needed low-income housing. Considering four public housing projects, in Vancouver, Toronto, Halifax and Winnipeg, Silver contends that public housing projects can be good places to live — if the political will exists. JIM SILVER is a professor and director of Urban and Inner-city Studies at the University of Winnipeg.

Vanishing Schools, Threatened Communities
Paul W. Bennett
The Contested Schoolhouse in Maritime Canada
Traditional schoolhouses and neighbourhood schools are disappearing at an alarming rate, making way for ”big box” schools that serve multiple communities and adhere to the logic of modernization, centralization and uniformity. In Vanishing Schools, Threatened Communities, author Paul W. Bennett explores the phenomenon of school closures, focusing on Maritime Canada from 1850 until the present day. Here is a lively, stimulating book that examines the rise of common schooling from one-room schoolhouses that encouraged local democratic control through to the rise of “super-sized” schools governed by a vast bureaucracy that silences public participation. Though the public has not always remained silent, local ”save our schools” movements have not succeeded in halting the march of ”progress.“ Bennett sets out, in this colourful history of schools, to remind us of the principles that formed the basis of the public education system and urges us to return to these principles in order to better serve the needs of our children and our communities.

Broke but Unbroken
Grassroots Social Movements and Their Radical Solutions to Poverty
In Broke but Unbroken, journalist Augusta Dwyer takes us on an inspiring journey through the slums and villages of Brazil, Indonesia, India and Argentina as she meets with organizers from some of the most successful grassroots social movements struggling against poverty. These organizers are not representatives from NGOs or aid organizations based in developed nations but the poor themselves — people who know intimately the reality of struggling for land, food, housing and the right to control their own resources and means of production. It is these movements, built from the ground up by the very people affected by poverty, that have achieved the most successes in ameliorating the conditions of the poor and providing real solutions to global poverty. As we travel with Dwyer through rural and urban landscapes, too often devastated by the demands of development, we meet people who have risked their homes, families and even their lives to affect real change in the world. The stories they share so openly and warmly are not merely accounts of economic or political success but are stories of empowerment and hope that dramatically portray the potency of collective action. In the beautiful prose of an accomplished writer, this book introduces us to extraordinary grassroots movements — and encourages us to learn the lessons they offer about successfully challenging power and changing the world. AUGUSTA DWYER is an award-winning independent journalist and the author of Into the Amazon: Chico Mendes and the Struggle for the Rainforest and On the Line: Life on the U.S.-Mexico Border.

Cars and Capitalism on the Road to Economic, Social and Ecological Decay
Yves Engler & Bianca Mugyenyi
In North America, human beings have become enthralled by the automobile: A quarter of our working lives are spent paying for them; communities fight each other for the right to build more of them; our cities have been torn down, remade and planned with their needs as the overriding concern; wars are fought to keep their fuel tanks filled; songs are written to praise them; cathedrals are built to worship them. In Stop Signs: Cars and Capitalism on the Road to Economic, Social and Ecological Decay, authors Yves Engler and Bianca Mugyenyi argue that the automobile’s ascendance is inextricably linked to capitalism and involved corporate malfeasance, political intrigue, backroom payoffs, media manipulation, racism, academic corruption, third world coups, secret armies, environmental destruction and war. When we challenge the domination of cars, we also challenge capitalism. An anti-car, road-trip story, Stop Signs is a unique must-read for all those who wish to escape the clutches of auto insanity.

Behind the Rhetoric
Mental Health Recovery in Ontario
Recovery has taken the mental health world by storm. In clinics, hospitals, community organizations and governments across North America and Europe, recovery rhetoric is everywhere. Its message of hope is catchy, its promise of wellness long overdue and its claims (somewhat) substantiated. But where did this new vision for mental health come from and what does it really mean for a system long unbalanced? Focusing on Ontario’s mental health communities, the book is the first to take a critical look at recovery’s talk and texts. Using Foucault’s analyses of discourse, it is also the first to go behind recovery’s rhetoric of hope and responsibility, re-theorizing mental health recovery in Canada. JENNIFER POOLE is an assistant professor in the School of Social Work at Ryerson University.

Doing Anti-Oppressive Practice
Social Justice Social Work, 2nd Edition
Donna Baines, ed.
Doing Anti-Oppressive Practice introduces students to the emerging tradition, the historical and theoretical roots and the specific contexts of antioppressive social work practice. AOP understands the problems faced by clients as rooted in the socio-political structure of society rather than in the personal characteristics of the clients themselves, and argues that social change must be a key component of social work practice. Using practice vignettes, personal experience and case work examples to discuss a variety of issues, this updated edition adds a new chapter on the theoretical basis of AOP as well as several practice chapters dealing with issues of child protection, poverty and welfare rights, disability rights, working with unions and standardized assessment procedures. Praise for the first edition “This has been a helpful text for examining issues of gender and oppression through an intersectional lens. The book not only introduces ‘anti-oppressive practice’ as a current form of progressive social work, but also provides helpful illustrations on topics such as indigenous pathways to anti-oppressive practice, bridging the practice-activism divide, anti-oppressive practice in child welfare, and restructuring and everyday resistance. A range of Canadian authors describe strategies, highlight issues and raise practical dilemmas inherent in practicing social work from an anti-oppressive perspective.” — Lyn Ferguson, Faculty of Social Work, University of Manitoba “Now, more than ever, we need to commit ourselves to anti-oppressive, transformative social work practice. Baines’ edited collection helps us to do just this. Well conceptualised, organised and integrated, the book is set in Canada but has much wider application given the pernicious and wide reaching effects of neo-conservative and New Public Management regimes. No matter whether you are a student, frontline practitioner, policy maker or academic, it offers rich insights and inspiration.” — Heather Fraser, Social Work, Flinders University, South Australia “I have found student engagement with this book to be outstanding. Students express much appreciation for the book’s contributions to their learning, especially as it is grounded in very practical terms… (it resonates) with their work experiences and/or placements. Overall … a fine and important collection of writing.” — Gordon Pon, School of Social Work, Ryerson University DONNA BAINES is an associate professor of labour studies and social work at McMaster University.

Security, With Care
Elizabeth M. Elliott
Restorative Justice and Healthy Societies
“I learned that the problems were much deeper than a flawed criminal justice system, and that our work needed to begin in our relationships with each other and the natural world, and most importantly, with ourselves.” (from the preface) Restorative justice, as it exists in Canada and the U.S., has been co-opted and relegated to the sidelines of the dominant criminal justice system. In Security, With Care, Elizabeth M. Elliott argues that restorative justice cannot be actualized solely within the criminal justice system. If it isn’t who we are, says Elliott, then the policies will never be sustainable. Restorative justice must be more than a program within the current system — it must be a new paradigm for responding to harm and conflict. Facilitating this shift requires a rethinking of the assumptions around punishment and justice, placing emphasis instead on values and relationships. But if we can achieve this change, we have the potential to build a healthier, more ethical and more democratic society. ELIZABETH M. ELLIOTT is an associate professor and co-director of the Centre for Restorative Justice at the School of Criminology, Simon Fraser University.

Activism that Works
Elizabeth Whitmore, Maureen G. Wilson & Avery Calhoun, eds.
How can we understand “success” in relation to social justice and environmental activism? How do activists themselves determine or define their effectiveness? Activism That Works shares the stories of eight diverse social justice movements, from Oxfam Canada, to the Calgary Raging Grannies, to the Youth Project of Halifax, as they contemplate their own successes. What we discover is that success is not measured only in large-scale social reform but is also found in moments of connection — in building relationships and raising awareness. Taking the lead from these stories, the authors contextualize and analyze success within social justice activism in Canada. Understanding their work as a contribution to the movements challenging the domination of free market ideology, the authors hope this book will offer a space for reflecting on the contributions and impacts of activist groups — and provide meaningful insights into what success means in the struggle against neoliberal capitalism.

An Introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies, 2nd Edition
C. Lesley Biggs, Susan Gingell & Pamela Downe, eds.
Following the structure of the successful first edition of Gendered Intersections, this second edition examines the intersections across and between gender, race, culture, class, ability, sexuality, age and geographical location from the diverse perspectives of academics, artists and activists. Using a variety of mediums — academic research, poetry, statistics, visual essays, fiction, emails and music — this collection offers a unique exploration of gender through issues such as Aboriginal self-governance, poverty, work, spirituality, globalization and community activism. This new edition brings a greater focus on politics, and gender and the law. It also includes access to a Gendered Intersections website, which contains several performances by poets and a Gendered Intersections Quiz, which highlights the historical and contemporary contributions of women and non-hegemonic men on Canadian Society. Praise for the first edition “Gendered Intersections’ diverse selections provide an excellent and encompassing overview in the field of Women’s and Gender Studies in Canada today. The thought-provoking readings encourage students to use a gendered perspective to engage in a critical analysis of current issues and topics. I find this an excellent text to get students thinking about the gendered world in which live.” — Wendee Kubik, Women’s Studies, University of Regina “The first edition of Gendered Intersections introduces Canadian readers to a global economy, and circuits of migration and culture through diverse feminist perspectives. The editors skillfully convey how human experiences that foreground sexuality, colonialism, race, disability and age are legitimate starting points for critical understandings of gender, an approach that is so necessary in undergraduate and college classrooms today. Both I and my students appreciate the accessible and critical manner in which the editors tackle everyday experiences of gender. — Jennifer Johnson, Women’s Studies, Laurentian University
“This book is based in … premises that guide teaching introductory gender and women’s studies courses and I expect it to be a very useful textbook. I … am confident that it sufficiently addresses directions, debates and discussions in gender and women’s studies … in particular … transnational perspectives, colonialism and indigenous issues and debates about gender and sexuality that are crucial … in classrooms across Canadian universities.” — Katherine Side, Women’s Studies, Memorial University C.

About Canada: Immigration
Nupur Gogia & Bonnie Slade
Many Canadians believe that immigrants steal jobs away from qualified Canadians, abuse the healthcare system and refuse to participate in Canadian culture. In About Canada: Immigration, Gogia and Slade challenge these myths with a thorough investigation of the realities of immigrating to Canada. Examining historical immigration policies, the authors note that these policies were always fundamentally racist, favouring whites, unless hard labourers were needed. Although current policies are no longer explicitly racist, they do continue to favour certain kinds of applicants. Many recent immigrants to Canada are highly trained and educated professionals, and yet few of them, contrary to the myth, find work in their area of expertise. Despite the fact that these experts could contribute significantly to Canadian society, deeply ingrained racism, suspicion and fear keep immigrants out of these jobs. On the other hand, Canada also requires construction workers, nannies and agricultural workers — but few immigrants who do this work qualify for citizenship. About Canada: Immigration argues that we need to move beyond the myths and build an immigration policy that meets the needs of Canadian society. NUPUR GOGIA received her PhD in sociology and equity studies in education at OISE, University of Toronto. BONNIE SLADE is a research fellow with the Institute of Education at the University of Stirling in Scotland.

About Canada: Youth and Children
Canada is a signatory on the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child, which guarantees the protection and care of children and youth. About Canada: Children and Youth examines each of the rights within the Canadian context — and finds Canada wanting. Schissel argues that although our expressed desire is to protect and care for our children, the reality is that young people, in Canada and around the world, often lack basic human rights. The lives of young people are steeped in abuse from the education and justice systems, exploitation by corporations, ill health and poverty. And while the hearts of Canadians go out to youth in distant countries suffering under oppressive circumstances, those same hearts often have little sympathy for the suffering of youth, particularly disadvantaged youth, within Canada. This book explores our contradictory views and argues that we must do more to ensure that the rights of the child are upheld. BERNARD SCHISSEL is a professor in and head of the Doctor of Social Sciences Program, Faculty of Social and Applied Sciences, Royal Roads University.

Canadian Labour in Crisis
Reinventing the Workers’ Movement
Does Canada have a working-class movement? Though many of us think of ourselves as middle class, most of us are, in fact, working class: we work for a wage. And though many of us are members of unions — the most significant organizations of the working-class movement in Canada — most people do not understand themselves to be part of this movement. Canadian Labour in Crisis asks why this is so. Through an analysis of the contemporary Canadian working-class movement and its historical development, David Camfield offers an explanation for its current state and argues that reform within the movement is not enough. From the structure of organizations to their activities and even the guiding ideology, Camfield contends that the movement needs a radical reinvention — and offers us a new way forward in reaching this goal. DAVID CAMFIELD is an associate professor in labour studies at the University of Manitoba.

Duane Rousselle & Süreyyya Evren, eds.
Post-anarchism has been of considerable importance in the discussions of radical intellectuals across the globe in the last decade. In its most popular form, it demonstrates a desire to blend the most promising aspects of traditional anarchist theory with developments in post-structuralist and post-modernist thought. Post-Anarchism: A Reader includes the most comprehensive collection of essays about this emergent body of thought, making it an essential and accessible resource for academics, intellectuals, activists and anarchists interested in radical philosophy. Many of the chapters have been formative to the development of a distinctly “post-anarchist” approach to politics, aesthetics and philosophy. Others respond to the so-called “post-anarchist turn” with caution and scepticism. The book also includes original contributions from several of today’s “post-anarchists,” inviting further debate and new ways of conceiving post-anarchism across a number of disciplines.
DUANE ROUSSELLE is a graduate student at Trent University. He is the founder and editor of the journal Anarchist Developments in Cultural Studies and a librarian for the Anarchist Library project. He has published in the International Journal of Zizek Studies. SÜREYYYA EVREN writes on contemporary art, literature and radical politics. He has published several books in Turkish and several articles in English, German, French and Czech. He is the editor-inchief and founder of the post-anarchist magazine Siyahi.

Private Affluence, Public Austerity
Economic Crisis and Democratic Malaise in Canada
Stephen McBride & Heather Whiteside
“The book is both timely and sorely needed. There is simply nothing like it. A brilliant and surprisingly clear analysis of the theory and practice of Canadian politics in the current conjuncture of capitalist development, the authors provide an exceptionally clear and most useful exposition of the forces at play, arising out of the propensity of capitalism towards crisis.” — Henry Veltmeyer, Saint Mary’s Examining Canadian political and economic developments of the twentyfirst century, Private Affluence, Public Austerity provides a systematic analysis of the dynamics of Canadian politics in the era of neoliberal globalization. Stephen McBride and Heather Whiteside conclude that, although the last three decades of neoliberal rule are characterized by recurrent crises, the system has proven to be resilient — even in the face of a severe recession. Canada’s “business as usual” approach to the recent financial crisis, an approach that fails to challenge the policies that are fundamental to the system and culpable for the crisis, is striking. Through policies aimed at the dismantling of the welfare state, privatization and the reduction of the state’s economic role — as well as an enthusiastic embrace of globalization and liberalized trade and investment regimes — the legacy of the Canadian political system is one of private affluence, public austerity and democratic decline. Private Affluence, Public Austerity asks us to consider the relationship between neoliberalism and crisis, and their role in democratic decline. What is the legacy of neoliberalism? It also asks the difficult questions: What is the future of neoliberalism? And what role will Canada play in charting the course of that future? This book offers an engaging and enlightening exploration of the theories of contemporary capitalism and reminds us that overcoming democratic malaise is a necessary first step on the path to change. STEPHEN MCBRIDE is a professor in the Department of Political Science and Canada Research Chair in public policy and globalization at McMaster University. HEATHER WHITESIDE is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Political Science at Simon Fraser University.

Turkey Since 1989
Since Turkey was catapulted back onto the world stage in 1989 it has turned into a major power broker and has developed into one the largest economies in the world. The country has, however, failed to peacefully resolve its ethnic, religious and historical conflicts. Today, as the foundations of the ethno-nationalist Kemalist state are eroding rapidly, Turkey appears to be coming to terms with the many sources of its anger, if cautiously and slowly. At this historical turning point, Turkey Since 1989: Angry Nation charts the contemporary history of Turkey by looking at the country’s erratic transformation from a military dictatorship to a maturing, if still troubled, democracy. KEREM ÖKTEM is research fellow at the European studies Centre, St. Antony’s College, Oxford University and teaches the politics of the Middle East at the Oriental Institute, University of Chicago.

Reshaping Steel Work
D. W. Livingstone, Dorothy E. Smith & Warren Smith
In the 1980s, following decades of booming business, the global steel industry went into a precipitous decline, which necessitated significant restructuring. Management demanded workers’ increased participation in evermore temporary and insecure labour. Engaging the workers at the flagship Stelco plant in Hamilton, the authors document new management strategies and the responses of unionized workforces to them. These investigations provide valuable insights into the dramatic changes occurring within the Canadian steel industry. “A gripping story of the upheaval in the lives of steelworkers, their families and communities as a result of industry restructuring.” — Peter Warrian, senior research fellow, Munk School for Global Affairs, University of Toronto ”Manufacturing Meltdown explains what has happened to our manufacturing, our jobs, our future and our country. This is something that needed telling and this book tells it very well.” — Bob Sutton, former recording secretary, United Steelworkers Local 1005 and editor of SteelShots

Bathtubs but No Water
A Tribute to the Mushuau Innu
“The Mushuau Innu, and indeed the people of Canada, would now be better off had the federal government in 1992 opted for an acceptable partnership with us to regain control of our lives.” — Chief Katie Rich In 1967, the Mushuau Innu — the Aboriginal people of Labrador — were resettled on Davis Inlet by the Canadian government. Originally a land-based people, this move to the coast created cultural, economic and spiritual upheaval, and Davis Inlet became synonymous with shocking substance abuse and suicide rates. In Bathtubs but No Water, Gerry Steele offers the reader a participant observer’s perspective on Davis Inlet. An employee of the federal government working with the Mushuau Innu since 1993, Steele explores their oral history of the resettlement process, substance abuse and deaths, and argues that these problems are a direct result of the government’s lack of respect for Aboriginal peoples. In 1992, the Innu tried to regain responsibility for their future, focusing on the traditions and strengths of their own community, but government bureaucracy would not support this partnership. Steele urges the government to engage in respectful partnerships with Aboriginal communities in order to achieve positive change.

Brown Skins, White Masks
Brown Skins, White Masks provides a critical examination of the role that immigrant “comprador intellectuals” play in facilitating the global domination of American imperialism. In Black Skin, White Masks, Frantz Fanon explored the consequences of inferiority that colonized people felt, leading them to identify with the ideology of the colonial agency. Dabashi picks up where Fanon left off and extends Fanon’s insights as they apply to today’s world. Dabashi examines the ideology of cultural superiority and provides a passionate account of how these immigrant intellectuals continue to betray any notion of home or country in order to manufacture consent for imperial projects. An internationally renowned cultural critic and award-winning writer, HAMID DABASHI is the author of eighteen books and many articles. His books and articles have been translated into numerous languages and include Theology of Discontent (1993), Iran: A People Interrupted (2007) and Islamic Liberation Theology: Resisting the Empire (2008).

Private Profit in Canada’s Medical Laboratories
When your doctor takes a blood sample for analysis, where does it go? Does it find its way to your local, publically owned hospital? Does it take a longer journey to a private, for-profit lab in the next city? Chances are, you’ve never given it a lot of thought. In this daring exposé of the laboratory system, Sutherland investigates its historical and contemporary development in Canada and argues that the landscape has been heavily influenced by the private, for-profit companies — to the detriment of the public health care system. ROSS SUTHERLAND is a registered nurse and holds a master’s degree in political economy from Carleton University.

Sex and the Supreme Court
Obscenity and Indecency Law in Canada
Richard Jochelson & Kirsten Kramar
Canadian laws pertaining to pornography and bawdy houses were first developed during the Victorian era, when ”non-normative” sexualities were understood as a corruption of conservative morals and harmful to society as a whole. Tracing the socio-legal history of contemporary obscenity and indecency laws, Kramar and Jochelson contend that the law continues to function to protect society from harm. Today, rather than seeing harm to conservative values, the court sees harm to liberal political values. While reforms have been made, especially in light of feminist and queer challenges, Kramar and Jochelson use Foucault’s governmentality framework to show that the liberal harm strategy for governing obscenity and indecency continues to disguise power. RICHARD JOCHELSON is a professor of criminal justice at the University of Winnipeg. KIRSTEN KRAMAR is a professor of sociology at the University of Winnipeg.

Children’s Needs and Parental Responsibilities
Once mainly breadwinners and disciplinarians, fathers are becoming increasingly involved and invested in their children’s lives. Edward Kruk examines how this changing role has affected fathers’ experiences of divorce and the loss of children that too often follows. This book offers a glimpse into the emotional loss that fathers suffer and their perspectives on what is best for their children in the divorce transition. Ultimately, Kruk argues, children benefit most from the love and support of both parents, and we need to ensure that fathers continue to play a meaningful parenting role after divorce. EDWARD KRUK is an associate professor of social work at University of British Columbia. He is the author of Mediation and Conflict Resolution in Social Work and Human Services (1997) and Divorce and Disengagement: Patterns of Fatherhood Within and Beyond Marriage (1993).

“What emerges from these stories is a picture of the power of love and of a woman who cared deeply about people, about peace and about equality. She never stopped working, thinking and strategizing about how to change the world.” — Halifax Chronicle Herald Muriel Duckworth passed away August 22, 2009 in her one hundred and first year. In the weeks that followed memorial services were held across Canada. This book brings together stories from Muriel’s family and close friends from the past dozen years of her life. It is a collection of heartfelt tales of Muriel’s ability to reach out to people, her humour, her deep affection for her family, her ongoing activism and enduring political feistiness, her views on education, religion, death, war and love.

How the Cougar Came to Be Called the Ghost Cat
Michael James Isaac, illustrated by Dozay (Arlene) Christmas
This beautifully illustrated children’s book, written in both Mi’kmaw and English, is the tale of a young cougar who decides to make his home in a new forest. When he finds that all of the animals in the forest are afraid of him, he agrees to stop behaving like a cougar so that he can make friends. This story reflects the experiences of First Nations peoples’ assimilation into the Euro-Canadian school system, but speaks to everyone who is marginalized or at risk. “How the Cougar Came to Be Called the Ghost Cat is an engaging, fanciful story which is brought to life by Christmas’s beautiful illustrations. The theme is timeless and it speaks to children across cultural boundaries. They will all see themselves in Ajig as he struggles to find his place in the world.” — Halifax Chronicle Herald

Stories of these experiences, many occurring within the “sixties scoop,” are often painful journeys poignantly revealing that adoption is not a positive experience for most First Nations people. To remedy this history and decolonize adoption practice, the Yellowhead Tribal Services Agency in Alberta (YTSA) is the first agency to combine customary first people’s adoption practices with provincial adoption laws and regulations. Jeannine Carriere concludes the book with recommendations for policy and practice for First Nation and Aboriginal adoption in general.

As well, each provides references to the most essential readings that explore these issues.
The Aid Triangle
Recognising the Human Dynamics of Dominance, Justice and Identity Malcolm MacLachlan, Stuart C. Carr & Eilish McAuliffe
pb 9781552663707 $24.95 215pp Canadian rights only 2010 The Aid Triangle focuses on the human dynamics of international aid, from impoverished farmers to aid workers, donor diplomats to multilateral bureaucrats, celebrities to activists, and to the unconcerned and uninvolved. This timely work illustrates how the aid system incorporates power relationships and therefore relationships of dominance. It explores how such dominance can be both a cause and a consequence of injustice and how the experience of injustice is both a challenge and a stimulus to personal, community and national identity — and argues that these identities underlie the human potential that international aid should seek to enrich.

The Unabashedly Human Experience of Raising Kids with Disabilities Yantra Bertelli, Jennifer Silverman & Sarah Talbot, eds.
pb 9781552663981 $21.95 336pp 2010 In lives where there is a new diagnosis or drama every day, the stories in this collection provide parents of “special needs” kids with a welcome chuckle, a rock to stand on and a moment of reality held far enough from the heart to see clearly. Featuring works by “alternative” parents who have attempted to move away from mainstream thought — or remove its influence altogether — this anthology, taken as a whole, carefully considers the implications of parenting while raising children with disabilities. From professional writers to novice storytellers, including Robert Rummel-Hudson, Ayun Halliday and Kerry Cohen, this assortment of authentic, shared experiences from parents at the fringe of the fringes is a partial antidote to the stories that misrepresent, ridicule and objectify disabled kids and their parents.
Shortlisted for the Saskatchewan Book Award for Non Fiction
Much of the writing about the female bodily experience excludes the stories and experiences of women with disabilities. Established norms dictate that a mother’s body be “healthy” and “whole.” Because the body with disabilities is often seen for what it cannot do, taking on the role of mother can give the body a different value, status and worth. Heather Kuttai’s experiences as a woman with a disability experiencing pregnancy and childbirth offers insights and understanding into what is already known about women’s bodies. Kuttai hopes that her book will show everyone how they don’t have to be limited in life by the expectations of others. “Our greatest wealth is having choices. Terrible things happen. It’s not about pretending it doesn’t hurt,” she says. ”But we are able to re-script our history and see what can come of it.” — Prairie Books NOW

The Economics and Politics of Crisis and Resistance David McNally
pb 9781552663608 $39.95 305pp Canadian rights only 2010 (short discount only) Mainstream textbooks present economics as an objective science free from value judgments. The Economics Anti-Textbook argues that this is a myth — one that is not only dangerously misleading but also bland and boring. Challenging the mainstream textbooks’ assumptions, arguments, models and evidence, this book puts the controversy and excitement back into economics to reveal a fascinating and a vibrant field of study — one which is more an “art of persuasion” than it is a science.
pb 9781552663967 $16.95 176pp Canadian rights only 2010 The Spectre Series Global Slump argues that the financial meltdown is the first systemic crisis of the neoliberal stage of capitalism and is responsible for ushering in a whole period of worldwide economic and political turbulence. Suggesting that the crisis is rooted in fundamental aspects of capitalism, McNally challenges the view that its source lies in financial deregulation. It offers an original account of the “financialization” of the world economy and explores the intricate connections between international financial markets and new forms of debt and dispossession.

In this groundbreaking analysis of the meltdown, renowned political economists Albo, Gindin and Panitch locate the roots of the crisis in the inner logic of capitalism itself and illuminate how the era of neoliberal free markets has been undergirded by massive state intervention. The authors argue that it’s time to start thinking about transformative alternatives to capitalism — and how to build the collective capacity to get us there.

pb 9781552663745 hb 9781552663905 pb $24.95 / hb $49.95 224pp Canadian rights only 2010 This book argues that food sovereignty is the means to achieving a system that will provide for the food needs of all people while respecting the principles of environmental sustainability, local empowerment and agrarian citizenship. The UN-endorsed goal of food security is becoming increasingly distant, especially among marginalized populations in both the North and South. The authors describe the recent emergence and the parameters of an alternative system, food sovereignty, that puts the levers of food control in the hands of those who are both hungry and produce the world’s food — peasants and family farmers, not corporate executives.

This book explores the experiences of bullying among youth who identify or are identified as queer. Through interviews with recent high school graduates in British Columbia, Haskell and Burtch share stories of physical, verbal and emotional harassment, and offer important insights into the negative outcomes that result from the experience of being bullied. The authors make recommendations for challenging homophobic and transphobic bullying in high schools and supporting students who experience this form of harassment.

pb 9781552663417 $17.95 132pp 2010 The Basics Series In 2001, a woman from the Congo was admitted to hospital in Hamilton, Ontario, with what was rumoured to be the deadly Ebola virus. Even though, it was equally quickly determined that she did not carry the virus, the rumour spread by the Canadian media. Through a content analysis of four major Canadian newspapers and interviews with journalists, medical practitioners and members of the Black community, Charles Adeyanju shows that it was the potent mixture of race, gender and immigration, not a real health problem, that lay at the heart of this public panic.
Missing Women, Missing News
Covering Crisis in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside David Hugill
pb 9781552663776 $17.95 112 pp 2010 The Basics Series Hugill examines newspaper coverage of the arrest and trial of Robert Pickton, the man charged with murdering twenty-six street-level sex workers from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. It demonstrates how news narratives obscured the complex matrix of social and political conditions that made it possible for so many women to simply “disappear” from a densely populated urban neighborhood without provoking an aggressive response by the state. This book argues that the coverage offers explanations that hold particular individuals and practices accountable but largely omit, conceal or erase the broader socio-political context that renders those practices possible.

That seems like it only delays a replay of the whole scenario, there had to be a better way out.

Arguing that we need to move away from a system based on compulsive addiction to growth and obsession with the profit motive, towards a collectivist, more humane economic mode, the book provides not merely a comprehensive background to the flawed ideologies that precipitated the collapse, but also a radical, though realistic, way forward in light of the catastrophe.

This book describes a research paradigm shared by Indigenous scholars in Canada and Australia, and demonstrates how this paradigm can be put into practice. Relationships don’t just shape Indigenous reality, they are our reality. Indigenous researchers develop relationships with ideas in order to achieve enlightenment in the ceremony that is Indigenous research. Indigenous research is the ceremony of maintaining accountability to these relationships. For researchers to be accountable to all our relations, we must make careful choices in our selection of topics, methods of data collection, forms of analysis and finally in the way we present information.

The Nature of Human Brain Work
An Introduction to Dialectics Joseph Dietzgen, with an afterword by Larry Gambone
pb 9781552663929 $19.95 144pp Canadian rights only 2010 Joseph Dietzgen was a pioneer of dialectical materialism and a fundamental influence on anarchist and socialist thought. He discovered that thinking is a process involving two opposing processes: generalization and specialization. All thought is therefore a dialectical process. Our knowledge is inherently limited however, which makes truth relative. The only absolute is existence itself; everything else is limited or relative. Thought and matter were no longer radically separated as in older forms of materialism. This book is vital for theorists today in that it lays the basis for a non-dogmatic, flexible, non-sectarian, yet principled socialist politics.

Leo Panitch, Greg Albo & Vivek Chibber, eds.
The challenge for socialist analysis is to reveal both the nature of the contradictions of capitalism in the neoliberal era of globalized finance, and their consequences in our time. Crises need to be understood as turning points that open up opportunities. Do they portend the end of neoliberalism? Can working classes impose their own template for types of economic and political renewal that can put back on the agenda the need to transcend capitalism itself? How to facilitate this is the sharpest challenge posed to socialists by the most severe global economic crisis since the 1930s.

Critical Thinking About Canadian Social Issues, 4th Edition Les Samuelson & Wayne Antony, eds
pb 9781552662243 $22.95 192pp 2007 (short discount only) How do we make sense of poverty, globalization, violence between men and women, youth politics, barriers to Aboriginal economic development, privatization of universities, and the like? These are just some of the questions taken up in Power and Resistance. The contributors to this book use a variety of analytical approaches. Yet, each shares a conviction that the social, economic and political issues confronting Canadians are shaped by the social inequalities that continue to plague us. At the same time, each author shows that, collectively and individually, Canadians resist these on-going inequalities in order to resolve our social troubles and create a more just society. This 4th edition adds chapters on youth politics, higher education, technology and work, and immigration.

Drawing on various sociological theories as well as anthropology, genetics, economics, history, philosophy, politics and social psychology, this accessible and integrated work helps undergraduate students make sense of our complex social world. “In my opinion, it’s the best introduction to sociology text I’ve seen, and I wouldn’t use any other.” —Avis Mysyk, Cape Breton University

WOMEN WOMEN WOMEN WOMEN WOMEN WOM Criminalizing Women
Gender and (In)justice in Neoliberal Times Gillian Balfour & Elizabeth Comack, eds.
pb 9781552661871 $36.95 382pp 2006 This book explores the narratives of women’s lives as “errant females,” sex trade workers, “gang” members and drug traffickers to map out the connections between the choices women make and the conditions of their lives. It considers the feminist strategies that have been used to address the conditions inside women’s prisons, to defend criminalized women’s human rights and to draw attention to the systemic abuses against poor and racialized women.
Race, Gender and Power Katerina Deliovsky
pb 9781552663523 $19.95 192pp 2010 This book contributes to the emerging field of white studies - an examination of the notion that whiteness is not an invisible category, but is itself a category of race. Looking at hegemonic white femininity in particular, the author examines the ways in which white women are coerced and compelled to demonstrate an allegiance to whiteness through their choice of intimate partners, sexual orientation, participation in racial inequality and complicity with white feminine beauty standards. This qualitative and theoretical research points to the fundamental role that white femininity plays in securing and reproducing whiteness as a location of white power and privilege.
