failure to intervene during the Rwandan genocide, the representa-
tion of Darfur in the mainstream media, atrocity investigations,
activist and NGO campaigns, art exhibitions and political rhetoric,
and the role of the international community in the discourse of
genocide prevention and intervention. A common theme is the
succession of political, bureaucratic, and informational barriers
that have prevented the international community from staging
effective action to quell the crimes against humanity in Darfur.
The situation in Darfur continues to deteriorate and it is clear
that the current UN peacekeeping mission is woefully inadequate
for civilian protection. An effective genocide prevention campaign
depends on international response and public will. The World and
Darfur is an important part of this dialogue, providing valuable
insights for scholars, human rights activists, and the concerned
general public.

Gold’s natural properties are every bit as surprising as the pow-
ers attributed to the mineral, which is why gold could engender
the brutal but extraordinarily productive encounter of the peoples
who built the Americas of today. The Indians, Africans, Europeans,
and Métis all contributed – through the alchemy of time and pas-
sion – to forging the face of the nations and the landscapes of the
vast territory of the Americas. From pre-Hispanic treasures to tech-
nological marvels of the twenty-first century, the ways in which
gold has been used are as limitless as the human imagination. Let
yourself succumb to gold fever and discover the Americas as you
have never before seen them.

it’s kind of an artwork in its own right. It was wicked, but it was
devised in this way for this kind of impact. It was devised visually.”
Starting from the tremendous fascination with images of 9/11,
Karen Engle asks what, in the context of a national trauma, makes
an image appropriate or scandalous, exploring how diverse visual
media have been mobilized in political projects of identification and
personal narratives of empathy. Focusing on themes of memory,
mourning, and history, Engle examines sculptural, photographic, and
new media responses to the 9/11 attacks in both contemporary and
historical contexts, considers the public’s reaction to these visual
productions, and suggests that earlier presentations of America at
war play a pivotal role in the representations of 9/11 in both official
and popular media.
Seeing Ghosts is a groundbreaking theoretical study of how we
remember, how we mourn, and how images of a particular event
influence our imagination of the future.

“Engle unifies a seemingly disparate assortment of 9/11 photo-


graphs, cartoons, memorabilia, and memorials in a compelling
argument regarding identity formation through mourning.
Accessible and deeply engaging.”

from transparency to withholding critical information as the crisis
deepened, and examine conflict resolution between leaders during
a disaster.
The study looks into whether technological development inad-
vertently constructed new vulnerabilities to nature’s forces, there-
by manufacturing a natural disaster. As this extreme weather may
foreshadow what will occur with global warming, Murphy’s inter-
views also explore the politics, economics, ethics, and cultural pre-
dispositions underlying climate change, investigating how modern
societies create both risks they assume are acceptable and the
burden of managing them. An innovative comparison with Amish
communities, where the same extreme weather had trivial conse-
quences, is instructive for avoiding future socio-environmental
calamities.
Leadership in Disaster is a major contribution to the analysis of
vulnerability, resilience, and the challenge of confronting environ-
mental problems, such as global climate change, and a valuable
resource for scholars and general readers seeking to learn more
about how extreme weather disasters can be managed.

“Interviews with key decision-makers should mean this reaches a

a daring, genre-breaking work, the world’s foremost scholar of the
The grace of fiction combined Irish diaspora fuses history and fiction into an iconoclastic chroni-
with the power of history. cle of civilization through Irish eyes. From St Patrick to Woody
Guthrie, Constantine to John F. Kennedy, India to the Australian
outback, Don Akenson’s An Irish History of Civilization is about the
Irish at home and abroad, the great and the small, the noble and
the depraved, the wise and the foolish.
Akenson weaves ironic and playful historical miniatures of Irish
misery, folly, and glory. Like the archetypal stories in the Talmuds,
the artful fictions in An Irish History of Civilization are universal,
big truths that require a big canvas. Akenson follows his chosen
peoples on their odyssey around the globe in a story like no other,
the lines between history and fiction irretrievably lost in the
mists of Irish time.

“Don Akenson has one-upped Joyce and forged the consciousness


of a race.” –The Globe and Mail

“Great fun, terrifically written, and down to earth: scholarship and


the Irish diaspora as you have never seen them before!”
–The Irish Times

“An Irish story presented in a Jewish form by a US-born Canadian


historian of Swedish Protestant ancestry … This is a very odd book,
but a genuinely brilliant achievement.” –The Independent

“I am at a loss as to how to best invite you into Don Akenson’s


“micro-Talmud of humankind” … where you will be tickled and
lashed all the way from the stone-age god-kings of Knowth, circa
3000 BC, to Billy Graham at a Nixon White House prayer breakfast.”
–Harper’s Magazine

“The stories are so absorbing that it was dangerous to begin read-


ing the book late at night. The next thing I knew, it was close to
morning and I began to develop what is known as Akenson-lag.
I suspect that many other readers will have a similar experience.”

of Celtic studies, St Michael’s College, University of Toronto

LIBRARY OF POLITICAL LEADERSHIP SERIES Series Editor: Thomas S. Axworthy


One of the first questions to be asked about any leader is what are his or her priorities and do they run with or against
the grain of history? An essential way of determining this is to research the public record and then compare goals with
accomplishments. We live in the age of tattle-tale history, with biographers keen to pry into the private lives of their
subjects and so-called friends happy to dish the dirt as long as the interviews are unattributed. But it is the public
record of measured words that remains the most reliable barometer of consistency or change in purpose. And
because the written word is key to describing ruling currents and interpreting sovereign forces, we need a copious,
accurate, and well-digested catalogue to serve as an authority. To understand a public figure in politics, it is necessary
to start with what he or she said and wrote.

The Queen’s University Centre for the Study of Democracy’s Library of Political Leadership occasional series highlights
the written and spoken words of Canada’s prime ministers, premiers, and opposition leaders, as well as those of sig-
nificant foreign leaders in their addresses involving Canada.

ANNOUNCING A NEW SERIES


T H E M AT I C I S S U E S I N F E D E R A L I S M

As part of its increased focus on comparative work on sectoral issues in federal systems, this new series from the
Forum of Federations complements and parallels the Global Dialogue series. More policy oriented than its sister series,
each of the volumes has been planned around a template of questions that will provide information and analysis rel-
evant to the needs of practitioners of federalism. Each volume will be a comparative work edited by leading experts
in the field and built around an author’s conference that will allow for exchange of ideas and provide direction with
regard to the final publication. The first two volumes in the series will deal with the financing and governance of
capital cities in federal countries and with oil and gas in federations. Future volumes will address policing and public
security, environmental assessment and regulation, natural resources, language policy, internal markets, poverty and
regional development, and climate change.
