Managed Annihilation an unnatural history of the newfoundland cod collapse Dean Bavington

The Newfoundland and Labrador cod fishery was once the most successful commercial ground fishery in the world. When it collapsed in 1992, many pointed to failures in management such as uncontrolled harvesting as likely culprits. Managed Annihilation makes the case that the idea of natural resource management itself was the problem. The collapse occurred when the fisheries were state-managed and still, two decades later, there is no recovery in sight. Although the collapse raised doubts among policy-makers about their ability to understand and control nature, their ultimate goal of control through management has not wavered and has been transferred from wild fish to fishermen and farmed cod.

The Aquaculture Controversy in Canada activism, policy, and contested Science Nathan Young and Ralph Matthews

The farming of aquatic organisms is one of the most promising but controversial new industries in Canada. The industry has the potential to solve food supply problems, but critics believe it poses unacceptable threats to human health, local communities, and the environment. This book is not about the methods and techniques of aquaculture, but it is an exploration of the controversy itself. The authors present the controversy as a multi-layered conflict about knowledge, rights, and development. Comprehensive and balanced, this book addresses one of the most contentious public policy and environmental issues facing the world today.

Media Divides communication rights and the right to communicate in canada Marc Raboy and Jeremy Shtern, with William J. mciver, laura J. murray, Seán Ó Siochrú, and leslie regan Shade

Canada is at a critical juncture in the evolution of its communications policy. Will our information and communications technologies continue in a market-oriented, neoliberal direction, or will they preserve and strengthen broader democratic values? Media Divides offers a comprehensive, up-to-date audit of communications law and policy. Using the concept of communications rights as a framework for analysis, leading scholars not only reveal the nation’s democratic deficits in five key domains – media, access, the Internet, privacy, and copyright – they also formulate recommendations, including the establishment of a Canadian right to communicate, for the future.

Awfully Devoted Women lesbian lives in canada, 1900–65 Cameron Duder

The lives of many lesbians prior to 195 remain cloaked in mystery. Historians have turned the spotlight on upper-middle-class “romantic friends” and on working-class butch and femme women, but the lives of the lowermiddle-class majority remain in the shadows. Awfully Devoted Women offers a portrait of middle-class lesbianism in the decades before the gay rights movement in English Canada. This intimate study of the lives of women who were forced to love in secret not only challenges the idea that lesbian relationships in the past were asexual, it also reveals the courage it took to explore desire in an era when women were supposed to know little about sexuality.

Sex and the Revitalized City gender, condominium Development, and urban citizenship Leslie Kern

When a recent wave of condominium development overtook Toronto, women emerged as powerful consumers, and reports claimed that home ownership was offering young, single women freedom, financial independence, and personal security. Sex and the Revitalized City examines the truth of these claims by exploring the phenomenon from the perspective of women condo owners, planners, and developers. This fresh perspective on urban revitalization reveals that condo ownership is not freeing women from constraints – neoliberal ideologies are remaking women’s relationship with the city in the image of fast capital and consumer citizenship. Women’s emancipation through condominium ownership is a marketing ploy rather than a major shift in gender relations.

British Columbia is Canada’s most ethnically diverse province.

Terrain of Memory a Japanese canadian memorial project Kirsten Emiko McAllister

For communities who have been the target of political violence, the damaging after-effects can haunt what remains of their families, their communities, and the societies in which they live. Terrain of Memory tells the story of the Japanese Canadian elders who built a memorial in New Denver, British Columbia, to transform a site of political violence into a space for remembrance. This book shows how collectively excavating painful memories can contribute to building relations across social and intergenerational divides. Those seeking a deeper understanding of the potential of memorial projects in transforming the damaging effects of human rights abuses should read this compelling account of community building and social justice.

Speaking for a Long Time public Space and Social memory in Vancouver Adrienne L. Burk

In the late 1990s, Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside became the setting for three monuments – Crab Park Boulder, Marker of Change, and Standing with Courage, Strength and Pride. The monuments were grassroots initiatives that challenged the norms of civic art by claiming a place in public space for society’s most vulnerable groups, and each figured in debates about many kinds of violence. Emphasizing the resilience and agency of artists, activists, and residents, this vivid account of the creation of memory-scapes offers unique insights into the links between power, public space, and social memory. It asks us to reconsider what constitutes public art that will “speak for a long time.”

Gathering Places aboriginal and Fur trade histories Edited by Carolyn Podruchny and Laura Peers

British traders and Ojibwe hunters. Cree women and their metis daughters. These people and their complex identities were not featured in history writing until the 1970s, when scholars from multiple disciplines began to bring new perspectives to bear on the past. Gathering Places presents some of the most innovative approaches to metis, fur trade, and First Nations history being practised today. By drawing on archaeological, material, oral, and ethnographic evidence and exploring personal approaches to history and scholarship, the authors depart from the old paradigm of history writing and offer new models for recovering Aboriginal and cross-cultural experiences and perspectives.

Canada and Ballistic Missile Defence, 1954–2009 Déjà Vu all over again James G. Fergusson

Since the mid-1950s, successive Canadian governments have responded to US ballistic missile defence initiatives with fear and uncertainty. Officials have endlessly debated the implications – at home and abroad – of participation. Drawing on previously classified government documents and interviews with senior officials, James Fergusson offers the first full account of Canada’s unsure response to US initiatives. He reveals that factors such as weak leadership and a tendency to place uncertain and ill-defined notions of international peace and security before national defence have resulted in indecision. In the end, policy-makers have failed to transform the ballistic missile defence issue into an opportunity to define Canada’s strategic interests at home and on the world stage.

From Victoria to Vladivostok canada’s Siberian expedition, 1917–19 Benjamin Isitt

This groundbreaking book brings to a life a forgotten chapter in the history of Canada and Russia – the journey of 4,200 Canadian soldiers from Victoria to Vladivostok in 191 to help defeat Bolshevism. Combining military and labour history with the social history of BC, Quebec, and Russia, Benjamin Isitt examines how the Siberian Expedition exacerbated tensions within Canadian society at a time when a radicalized working class, many French-Canadians, and even the soldiers themselves objected to a military adventure designed to counter the Russian Revolution. The result is a highly readable and provocative work that challenges public memory of the First World War while illuminating tensions – both in Canada and worldwide – that shaped the course of twentieth-century history.

Militia Myths ideas of the canadian citizen Soldier, 1896–1921 James Wood

This cultural history of the amateur military tradition traces the origins of the citizen soldier ideal from long before Canadians donned khaki and boarded troopships for the Western Front. Before the Great War, Canada’s military culture was in transition as the country navigated an uncertain relationship with the United States and fought an imperial war in South Africa. Militia Myths explores the ideological transformation that took place between 19 and 1921, arguing that by the end of the War, the untrained citizen volunteer had replaced the long-serving militiaman as the archetypal Canadian soldier.

Crashing the Tea Party mass media and the campaign to remake american politics Paul Street and Anthony DiMaggio

Is the Tea Party a genuine social movement or a top-down interest group created largely by the mass media, Republican Party, and corporate funding? Through firsthand observation of local Tea Party chapters, Street and DiMaggio uncover details about the Tea Party that have remained largely unexplored. In Crashing the Tea Party, Street and DiMaggio explore this question systematically, closely documenting their results. This book fi lls the gap in public understanding of how social movements fit within the larger political ideologies on the left and right, and the growing role of media in influencing public opinion on major issues of the day.

This updated and revised edition explores the dynamics of power relationships and international negotiations, and the use of terror between the Western countries and the nations of the Middle East in the post9/11 era. Chomsky looks back to patterns since the Second World War to show how acts of terrorism today cannot be understood outside the context of Western power and state terror throughout the world, especially in the Middle East. This new edition offers the best opportunity to follow Chomsky’s analysis in its development during the ten years since 9/11.

Deadly Embrace pakistan, america, and the Future of the global Jihad Bruce Riedel

Pakistan and America have been entangled in a deadly embrace for decades. American presidents pursued narrow, short-term interests in Pakistan, contributing to its instability and radicalization. This set the stage for the development of global jihad. Riedel was in the White House during September 11, and he has been instrumental in helping the Obama administration understand “the most dangerous region of the world.” In this book, he explains how Pakistan became the epicenter of the global jihad movement, and what lay ahead for the country. Riedel’s follow up to his immensely successful The Search for al Qaeda is an eye-opening, authoritative look at the history, status, and current role of Pakistan and its complicated relationship with Washington.

A Vulcan’s Tale how the bush administration mismanaged the reconstruction of afghanistan Dov zakheim

The “Vulcans,” so named by Condoleezza Rice, were a small group who advised George W. Bush on foreign policy. The group included Dov Zakheim, comptroller and chief financial officer for the Department of Defense, who also served as the DOD’s coordinator for Afghan civilian reconstruction. The “money man” for national security uncovers in this book how the devil was in the details during the planning for the reconstruction of Afghanistan. Coordination, management, and leadership were lacking and the mission suffered as a result. The Bush administration was often unable to effectively implement good policies and sound ideas and thus was not able to achieve its goals.


DOV S. zAKHEIM, one of the original “Vulcans,”

Ending Obama’s War responsible military Withdrawal from afghanistan David Cortright

“I’m not opposed to all wars. I am opposed to dumb wars,” Barack Obama famously declared. As president, he greatly expanded the US military commitment in Afghanistan – then, to the shock of many Americans, called for military withdrawals after eighteen months. David Cortright analyzes military policy and examines alternative strategies to prevent terrorism and advance human rights. He critiques the strategic and political assumptions undergirding military surge policies and illuminates the growing influence of the Taliban. Cortright’s goal is not only to hold Obama to his intentions, but to do so in a way that yields true human security – better political leaders, more aid workers, and many more educated Afghans.

The Long Sixties From 1960 to barack obama Tom Hayden TOM HAYDEN is the author of the Port Huron

Only the assassinations of the Kennedys and Martin Luther King Jr. prevented the Sixties from ending with a progressive presidency propelled into power by social movement activism. But the Sixties did leave a critical imprint on America, from civil rights laws to the environmental movement. Hayden portrays the Reagan and Bush eras as countermovements against the Sixties that ultimately failed, and the Obama presidency as a delayed achievement. His carefully researched history includes formidable, if sometimes forgotten, coverage of Sixties achievements as well as a valuable timeline for activists, journalists, and historians as the 50th anniversary of every episode of that decade approaches.

After Tippecanoe Some aspects of the War of 1812 Edited by Philip P. Mason

In 111, as Shawnee chief Tecumseh attempted to form a confederacy of tribes to stem white settlement in the Old Northwest, Americans marched to his village at the mouth of Tippecanoe Creek. The ensuing battle ended all hope of an Indian federation and had far-reaching effects on American and British relations. The British, blamed for providing the Indians with arms, drew the ire of hawks in Congress, who clamored ever more loudly for a war to end England’s power in North America. Revised with a new introduction and updated biographical information, After Tippecanoe contains six papers originally presented as lectures in 1912 by American and Canadian historians.

The traditional medicines of Middle Asia are rich and varied. Dr. Marc S.

Describing the origins, health promotion strategies, diagnostic techniques, and modern-day uses of each approach, he also draws parallels to and finds correlations with mainstream Western concepts, and demonstrates how these complementary and alternative therapies fit within the context of their own cultures and ours.

How Everyone on the Autism Spectrum, Young and Old, Can Become Resilient, Be More Optimistic, Enjoy Humour, Be Kind, and Increase Self-Efficacy June Groden, Ayelet Kantor, Cooper R. Woodard, and Lewis P. Lipsitt

This new approach to working with children and young people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) fosters the characteristics that will be most useful to them in society and in life in general. Children with ASD often have difficulties with communication, emotional regulation, anxiety, executive functioning, and building relationships. Positive psychology – an approach which encourages individuals to foster positive emotions and character traits – can improve their life in every way, and help to strengthen their ability to cope with everyday challenges and setbacks in these areas. The authors provide an accessible explanation of the theory behind the positive psychology approach.

Something Different About Dad how to live with Your asperger’s parent Kirsti Evans, illustrated by John Swogger

This positive book takes an honest look at how Asperger Syndrome can affect a family when a parent is on the spectrum, and reassures young people that it’s okay to have a mum or dad who is different. This book reveals a family’s journey from initial diagnosis to gradual acceptance of the fact that there is “something different about Dad.” Sophie and Daniel learn the reasons behind their dad’s problems, and they also come to recognise his positive attributes. This warm, funny story emphasizes how love within a family can overcome all difficulties, looking at sensitive issues in a lighthearted yet reassuring manner.

The Pursuit of Happiness toward an economy of Well-being Carol Graham

The study of happiness was of great interest to economists such as Adam Smith, but then fell out of favour. Now economists are circling back, and research on happiness has entered the mainstream. This straightforward, accessible book explores what we know about the determinants of happiness across and within countries of different development levels. The results are counterintuitive and fascinating. Carol Graham discusses the potential and challenges of using happiness measures as comparative indicators and determinants of policy. She argues that a definition of well-being that goes beyond income could improve understanding of poverty and development and explores what the components of such a metric would be.

uncharitable how restraints on nonprofits undermine their potential Dan Pallotta

Uncharitable goes where no other book on the nonprofit sector has dared to tread. Where other texts suggest ways to optimize performance inside the existing paradigm, Uncharitable suggests that the paradigm itself is the problem and calls into question our fundamental canons about charity. Author Dan Pallotta argues that society’s nonprofit ethic acts as a strict regulatory mechanism on the natural economic law. It creates an economic apartheid that denies the nonprofit sector critical tools and permissions that the for-profit sector is allowed to use without restraint. By declaring our independence from these obsolete ideas, we can dramatically accelerate progress on the most urgent social issues of our time.

Prosperity without Growth economics for a Finite planet Tim Jackson, Foreword by herman Daly, bill mcKibben, mary robinson, and pavan Sukhdev

Is more economic growth the solution? Will it deliver prosperity and well-being for a global population projected to reach nine billion? In this explosive book, Tim Jackson makes a compelling case against continued economic growth in developed nations. In the advanced economies there is mounting evidence that ever-increasing consumption adds little to human happiness and may even impede it. More urgently, it is now clear that the ecosystems that sustain our economies are collapsing under the impacts of rising consumption. Tim Jackson provides a credible vision of how human society can flourish – within the ecological limits of a finite planet. Fulfi lling this vision is simply the most urgent task of our times.

The Rising Sea Orrin H. Pilkey and Rob Young

The question is no longer whether climate change is causing the oceans to swell, but by how much and how quickly. While rising seas are now inevitable, we are far from helpless. By making hard choices – including uprooting citizens, changing where and how we build, and developing a coordinated national response – we can save property, and ultimately lives. Pilkey and Young deft ly guide readers through the science, explaining the facts and debunking the claims of industry-sponsored “skeptics.” With unassailable research and practical insights, The Rising Sea is a critical first step in understanding the threat and keeping our heads above water.

It’s liberal. It’s green. It’s the portal to Alaska and Asia. But such characterizations oversimplify the many idiosyncrasies and contradictions of Seattle, Washington. The contributors in Seattle Geographies explore the city’s complex social, economic, political, and cultural geographies. They tackle diverse issues including economic restructuring, gay space, trade with China, and P-Patches, and explore Seattle’s darker side by looking at homelessness, poverty, and segregation. Accountability to place guides this multi-faceted portrayal of Seattle.

Climate Change Denial heads in the Sand Haydn Washington and John Cook

Paradoxically, as the climate science has become more certain, denial about the issue has increased. This book examines the nature of climate change denial, its history, how we let denial prosper, and how we can roll it back. It summarises the climate science and explains uncertainty and probability. It contains a detailed examination of the principal climate change denial arguments, from attacks on the integrity of scientists, to impossible expectations of proof and certainty, to the cherry picking of data. This book shows how we can break through denial, accept reality, and thus solve the climate crisis.

Water towards a culture of responsibility Antoine Frérot, Foreword by Ángel gurría

Clean, fresh drinking water is essential to human and animal life. It’s equally important to the world economy: it functions as a universal solvent, makes possible industrial cooling and transportation, and is necessary for every type of agriculture. One billion people do not have access to clean drinking water, and more than 2 million of them die every year. Antoine Frérot considers how climate change will cause water shortages and explains what we can do now to prevent them. We have the political, economic, and scientific means to ensure the future of water on earth, he argues; we need only the will to take action.

Darwin’s Pharmacy Sex, plants, and the evolution of the noösphere Richard M. Doyle

Darwin’s Pharmacy weaves the evolutionary theory of sexual selection and the study of rhetoric together with the science and literature of psychedelic drugs. Psychedelic plants are modeled as “eloquence adjuncts” that intensify a crucial component of sexual selection in humans: discourse. They engage our awareness of the noösphere, defined by V.I. Vernadsky as the thinking stratum of the earth. Connecting with the noösphere offers a powerful way to respond to ecosystem crises and forms the backdrop of the “ecodelic” thought of the environmental movement, while current policies criminalize plant-based psychedelics and simultaneously feed the global black market for chemically-derived drugs.

Hunters in the Barrens the naskapi on the edge of the White man’s World Georg Henriksen, Foreword by robert paine

This comprehensive study of the Naskapi of Labrador is based on an anthropologist’s life with them between 19 and 19, when families still followed the traditional pattern of hunting on the barrens during the winter and returning to their costal settlements in the summer. The Naskapi now live in coastal settlements; no longer in possession of their own culture, they have become sedentary under white tutelage. This description of two antithetical worlds provides valuable insights for anyone interested in contemporary Aboriginal rights issues.

Iceland, Greenland, Northern Norway, and the Faroe Islands lie on the edge of Western Europe, in an area long portrayed as remote, harsh, and exotic. This marginalized region gradually embraced the modern world, a transformation that is at the heart of Iceland Imagined. This cultural and environmental history sweeps across the dramatic North Atlantic landscape, exploring its unusual geography, saga narratives, language, culture, and politics, and analyzing its emergence as a distinctive and symbolic part of Europe. It reveals how visions of a wild frontier gave way to images of beautiful, well-managed lands and virtuous people living close to nature.

The tipi is an iconic symbol of North American Aboriginal culture, recognized throughout the world. Richly illustrated with historic and contemporary photographs and artwork, this book reveals the history and significance of this remarkable architectural form from the 130s to the present. Ideally suited to the Plains nomadic lifestyle, the tipi was the heart of Plains social, religious, and creative traditions. Trade and innovation brought new materials and ways of living to Plains people. As the nomadic way of life gave way to more permanent settlements, the tipi evolved in form but remained central to Plains culture and identity.

Virgil’s Golden Egg and Other Neapolitan Miracles an investigation into the Sources of creativity Michael A. Ledeen

Many cities have great moments of creativity, and then lose it. Naples has survived centuries of foreign occupation, widespread misery on a grand scale, the end of its role as a great capital city, repeated natural catastrophes, and terrible epidemics – and it shows no signs of slowing down. What accounts for Naples? The sorcerer Virgil is said to have created a Golden Egg to save Naples from natural catastrophe. Michael Ledeen examines the legend of the egg – now locked in an iron cage and buried beneath the “Egg Castle” – to suggest some surprising answers in this highly original exploration of Neapolitan life, death, and creativity.

The Gutenberg Revolution a history of print culture Richard Abel

In this book, Richard Abel describes the earlier centuries that form the background to understanding the radical cultural impact of the printing revolution. He begins with the eighth century Carolingian Renaissance and the twelft h century Renaissance, noting the viability of the new Christian/Classical culture of the West. While both proved too culturally fragile to endure, those who salvaged those two earlier Renaissances preserved elements of Classical substance together with the Bible and all the writings of the Church Fathers. The cultural upsurge of the Renaissance of the fourteenth to seventeenth centuries, which resulted in part from Gutenberg’s invention, is a major focus of the work.

The Book of Change Eileen Chang

Eileen Chang arrived in Hong Kong from Shanghai in 1939 and enrolled in the University of Hong Kong. Her childhood in Shanghai was a gothic horror tale in which she finally ran away from her father and stepmother. Her student life in Hong Kong was a happy interlude, but Chang soon found herself stranded by the war. The Japanese occupation of late 1941 provided many brutal lessons on the fragile nature of personal attachments. This book provides a first-hand account of life in wartime Hong Kong , with scathing details of widespread cowardice, as well as inspiring examples of human resilience.

The Fall of the Pagoda Eileen Chang

The Fall of the Pagoda, the first of two semiautobiographical novels written originally by Eileen Chang in English, depicts in gripping detail her childhood years in Tianjin and Shanghai, while The Book of Change revolves around her wartime student days in Hong Kong. The Fall of the Pagoda introduces a young girl (called Lute) growing up amid many family entanglements with her divorced mother and spinster aunt during the 1930s in Shanghai’s International Settlement. Both novels shed light on the construction of selfhood in Chang’s other novels, through lengthy discussions of Chang’s difficult relationship with her selfishly demanding mother as well as of intricate dynamics in the extended families who emerged from aristocratic households of the late Qing Dynasty.

Champagne and Meatballs adventures of a canadian communist Bert Whyte, edited and with an introduction by larry hannant

Active for over forty years with the Communist Party of Canada, Bert Whyte was a journalist, an underground party organizer and soldier during the Second World War, and a press correspondent in Beijing and Moscow. But Whyte never let left ist ideology get in the way of a great yarn. In Champagne and Meatballs we meet a cigar-smoking rogue who was at least as happy at a pool hall as at a political meeting. His stories of bumming across Canada in the 1930s, of combat and camaraderie at the front lines in the Second World War, and of surviving as a dissident in troubled times make for compelling reading.

LARRY HANNANT is a Canadian historian specializing in twentieth-century political dissent. He is the author of The Infernal Machine: Investigating the Loyalty of Canada’s Citizens and the editor of The Politics of Passion: Norman Bethune’s Writing and Art, which won the Robert S.

Why I Left the Amish a memoir Saloma Miller Furlong

When Saloma Miller Furlong’s father died, she returned to the Amish community she had left twenty-four years earlier to attend his funeral. Now a mother with grown children of her own, Furlong recalls her painful childhood in a family defined by her father’s mental illness, her brother’s brutality, her mother’s frustration, and the austere traditions of the Amish she struggled to accept before making the difficult decision to leave. In this personal and moving memoir, Furlong traces the genesis of her desire for freedom and education, chronicles her quest for independence, and reveals life within – and without – a frequently misunderstood community.

Praha E.D. Blodgett

Prompted by renowned poet E.D. Blodgett’s deep love for and intimate experience of Prague, Praha is a poetic homage to the legendary city’s vital spirit. As they build on one another, the poems in the collection lift the reader over the threshold of purely mythic understanding and into the heart of one of Europe’s loveliest and most venerable cities. Each poem is accompanied by a translation into Czech, encouraging even those who do not know the language to immerse themselves in its sound. Superbly complemented by the mysteriously eloquent paintings of Czech artist Robert Kessner, Praha offers the moods of Prague in its many seasons and in all its magic.

E.D. BLODGETT is a distinguished professor emeritus of comparative literature at the University of Alberta, and held the Louis Desrochers Chair in Études canadiennes at the Campus Saint-Jean from 200-2010.

Musing Jonathan Locke Hart

Musings is a book of sonnets. Working within the framework of a classic poetic form, Jonathan Locke Hart embarks on an extended meditation on our rootedness in landscape and in the past. As sonnets, some of the poems are traditional, some innovative. Throughout, Hart deft ly imparts a European poetic flavour to a fundamentally North American experience, one grounded in his years both in Canada and in the United States.

The Beautiful Walls photographic elevations of Street art in los angeles, berlin, and paris Larry Yust and Patrick Polk

Graffiti is a forceful way of inscribing presence in the world as well as a means of creating links to the potency of natural wonders, religious shrines, ancient ruins, and the contemporary cityscape. The photographic elevations presented in this volume represent a graffitipunctuated pilgrim’s progress built around the aesthetics of defacement. Graffiti- and mural-covered walls, buildings, automobiles, and railcars are the artful wonders, the vibrant shrines, and the dynamic ruins that structured Larry Yust’s pilgrimage to some of the most famed metropolitan centers of the world. This book celebrates the artistry and audacity of taggers and uncommissioned muralists who decorate and deface contemporary cities.

From Victoria to Vladivostok

Short, inglorious, hugely unpopular at the time and largely forgotten ... Isitt’s extensive analysis of why we were there…is convincing, as is his ironic conclusion.

– Brian Bethune,

Managed Annihilation

The sorry state of ocean life has led to a new kind of fish story – a lament not for the one that got away but for the countless others that didn’t ... Dean Bavington ... observes that two hundred billion pounds’ worth of cod were taken from Canada’s Grand Banks before 1992, when the cod simply ran out.

– Elizabeth Kolbert, The New Yorker

The Canadian War on Queers

This account of the surveillance of Canadian lesbians and gays in the name of national security is impressive, at once bone-chilling and inspiring.

– David Rayside, Left History

Awfully Devoted Women

An excellent contribution to Canadian lesbian historiography and to the growing literature on gender and sexuality. Highly recommended. – D.A. Chekki, CHOICE
