Rocks in the Water, Rocks in the Sun: A Memoir from the Heart of Haiti

Vilmond Joegodson D?ralcin? & Paul Jackson

Rocks in the Water, Rocks in the Sun: A Memoir from the Heart of Haiti by Vilmond Joegodson D?ralcin? & Paul JacksonWhen Joegodson Déralciné was still a small child, his parents left rural Haiti to resettle in the rapidly growing zones of Port-au-Prince. As his family entered the city in 1986, Duvalier and his dictatorship exited. Haitians, once terrorized under Duvalier's reign, were liberated and emboldened to believe that they could take control of their lives. But how? Joining hundreds of thousands of other peasants trying to adjust to urban life, Joegodson and his family sought work and a means of survival. But all they found was low-waged assembly plant jobs of the sort to which the repressive Duvalier...

Romancing the Revolution: The Myth of Soviet Democracy and the British Left

Ian Bullock

Romancing the Revolution: The Myth of Soviet Democracy and the British Left by Ian BullockOver two decades have passed since the collapse of the USSR, yet the words "Soviet Union" still carry significant weight in the collective memory of millions. But how often do we consider the true meaning of the term "Soviet"? Drawing extensively on left-wing press archives, Romancing the Revolution traces the reactions of the British Left to the idealized concept of Soviet democracy. Focusing on the turbulent period after the 1917 Russian Revolution, author Ian Bullock examines the impact of the myth of Soviet democracy: the belief that Russia was embarking on a brave experiment in a form of...

Community Nutrition for Developing Countries

Norman J. Temple

Community Nutrition for Developing Countries by Norman J. TempleA co-publication with UNISA Press Nutrition textbooks used by universities and colleges in developing countries have very often been written by scholars who live and work in North America or the United Kingdom. And while the research and information they present is sound, the nutrition-related health challenges with which developing countries must grapple differ considerably from those found in highly industrialized Western nations. The primary aim of Community Nutrition for Developing Countries is to provide a book that meets the needs of nutritionists and other health professionals living...

Our Union

Jason Russell

Our Union by Jason RussellIn Our Union, Jason Russell argues that the union local, as an institution of working-class organization, was a key agent for the Canadian working class as it sought to create a new place for itself in the decades following World War II. Using UAW/CAW Local 27, a broad-based union in London, Ontario, as a case study, he offers a ground-level look at union membership, including some of the social and political agendas that informed union activities. As he writes in the introduction, "This book is as much an outgrowth of years of rank-and-file union activism as it is the result of academic curiosity."...

The Kindness Colder Than the Elements

Charles Noble

The Kindness Colder Than the Elements by Charles NobleWith wit and cunning, Noble's poems insinuate themselves into the mediations of "we use language" / "language uses us," into the objectification of "mind," into the struggles and cracking of systems. Cuing on Hegel's epochal revitalization of the syllogism, they begin with sentences-cum-arguments that issue from an everyman's intentions and insights, playing into and baiting the "sociality of reason." In the cut-up sentences then come the restless, accelerated themes-themes that exist only in their variations, ghosting into one another like the dusk and the dawn in a winging, distended now.

Aiming to clarify rather than mystify, Stefanick outlines the history and application of FOIP legislation, with special focus on how these laws affect the individual. To illustrate...

Recollecting

Sarah Carter

Recollecting by Sarah CarterRecollecting is a rich collection of essays that illuminates the lives of late-eighteenth-century to mid-twentiethcentury Aboriginal women, who have been overlooked in sweeping narratives of the history of the West.

Exploring the constraints...

The dust of just beginning

Don Kerr

The dust of just beginning by Don KerrDon Kerr knows prairie culture better than most?he knows it from the inside out. He has made us aware of ourselves through his numerous volumes of poetry, his fiction, his many plays, his histories, and his interest in heritage. In this mature, accomplished collection, we can once again admire his unique prairie voice?minimalist, self-effacing, direct yet subtle and nuanced, immersed in his love of the vernacular language of this place. His line is muscular, his timing impeccable, his broad strokes with so few words exemplary.

To Know Our Many Selves by Dirk HoerderTo Know Our Many Selves profiles the history of Canadian Studies, which began as early as the 1840s with the Study of Canada.

Against this background, To Know Our Many Selves focuses on why Canadian Studies may be used as a sound model for the study of other...
