Provocative Titles for Intellectual Pursuits

Winter 2011 This catalog represents our fourth and final catalog for this, the inaugural year of the River North Editions catalog. We have been extremely pleased with the response to this new catalog and look forward to another successful year. In addition, based on the increase in diverse media reviews secured by the RNE publishers, it appears that we are expanding the audience for these highquality works. IPG has a meticulous approach to accepting publishers for distribution—many publishers approach us, but few qualify for distribution—so it is extremely rewarding to be able to introduce new and innovative publishers to the marketplace. When we do introduce a new publisher for the first time, we also display their entire backlist under the last section in the catalog, entitled New Publisher Backlist Titles. In our commitment to offer fresh, original thinking and diverse opinions, River North Editions is pleased to present its latest collection of new titles from our noteworthy publishers. The content found in these titles will promote intellectual inquiry, yet the subjects and points of view will reach beyond a strictly academic ideal and satisfy the curiosity of customers who support quality independent trade and university bookstores.

Prison of Culture Beyond Black Like Me John Howard Griffin • Advertising in Booklist, Multicultural Review, and Poets & Writers online • Author’s previous books sold more than 100,000 copies The companion volume to the 50th-anniversary edition of Black Like Me, this book features John Howard Griffin’s later writings on racism and spirituality. Conveying a progressive evolution in thinking, it further explores Griffin’s ethical stand in the human rights struggle and nonviolent pursuit of equality—a view he shared with greats such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Thomas Merton. Enlightening and forthright, this record also focuses on Griffin’s spiritual grounding in the Catholic monastic tradition, discussing the illuminating meditations on suffering and the author’s own reflections on communication, justice, and dying. John Howard Griffin was a musicologist who served, and was injured, in the Air Force during World War II. Blind for a decade, Griffin became an acclaimed novelist and essayist and when his sight returned, almost miraculously, he became a remarkable portrait photographer. Following his cross-racial exploration in the South, he was personally vilified, hanged in effigy in his hometown, threatened with death, and severely beaten by the Klu Klux Klan. Respected internationally as a human rights activist, he worked with major Civil Rights leaders throughout the era, taught at the University of Peace, and delivered more than a 1,200 lectures in the United States and abroad. He is the author of The Devil Rides Outside. AMERICAN STUDIES/SPIRITUALITY, 160 PAGES, 6 X 9 2 B & W PHOTOS TRADE PAPER, $16.95 (CAN $18.95)

Jonathan Campbell • $20,000 marketing budget Rebellious, individualistic, and explosive, rock and roll seems incongruent with modern Chinese society. However, as the music has evolved from a Western import into something uniquely Chinese, it has been shaped by the nation’s unique system and its relationship with the outside world. As it tracks the music’s long journey from the Mao years to present day, this account considers the people and the events that have created Chinese rock’s identity. Including interviews with musicians, journalists, and industry experts, this book demonstrates that Chinese rock may be ready to smash its guitars on the global stage. Jonathan Campbell immersed himself in China’s rock scene as a drummer, writer, and promoter. He has brought Chinese acts to the world stage, and brought overseas bands to China. His writing has appeared in the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, and the South China Morning Post. He lives in Toronto, Ontario.

• $20,000 marketing budget Filled with a whimsical sense of humor and fantastic fables of faraway lands, this book offers a Western perspective on China in the mid-19th century. Using vivid detail and excellent cartoons, it demonstrates the clash between the mythically serene China and the political realities of the Opium War, including the harsh, colonial era. It encapsulates the ethos of an era when the West saw China as a remote and unspoiled empire, ripe for the picking. Peter Parley was a pen name coined by the highly popular American author Samuel Griswold Goodrich. The author of this book, whose real identity remains unknown, was one such imposter.

Shanghai in the 1930s was one of the world’s most dangerous cities, with kidnappings and murders as daily occurrences. British police officer E. W. Peters of the Shanghai Municipal Police leads the way down the city’s dark lanes and alleys, through a crime-ridden underworld of brothels, opium dens, and gambling parlors.

Here, old Shanghai is depicted at its most exciting. E. W. Peters is a former British police officer in the Shanghai Municipal Council who was dismissed following charges of attempted murder. He and his codefendants were both found not guilty.

George Selgin A fascinating story of the important yet virtually unknown episode in the history of money, this history chronicles the British manufacturers’ challenge to the Crown’s monopoly on coinage. In the 1780s, when the Industrial Revolution was gathering momentum, the Royal Mint failed to produce enough small-denomination coinage for factory owners to pay their workers. As the currency shortage threatened to derail industrial progress, manufacturers began to mint custom-made coins, called “tradesman’s tokens,” which served as the nation’s most popular currency for wages and retail sales until 1821, when the Crown outlawed all moneys except its own. This book not only examines the crucial role of private coinage in fueling Great Britain’s Industrial Revolution, but also sheds light on contemporary private-sector alternatives to government-issued money, such as digital monies, cash cards, electronic funds transfer, and—outside of the United States—spontaneous “dollarization.” George Selgin is a research fellow at the Independent Institute and a professor of economics at the University of Georgia. He is also the author of Bank Deregulation and Monetary Order, Less Than Zero, and The Theory of Free Banking. He lives in Athens, Georgia.

A year in Melbourne’s city life told in diary form, this contemporary and personal portrait depicts major events from the Australian heat wave, which culminated in more than 400 bushfires, to the destructive deluge of a hailstorm. While walking through Melbourne’s oldest suburb to its largest market, experiencing an Australian Rules Football game, and attending the comedy festival, writer Sophie Cunningham journeys deep into her own recollections of the city she grew up in, and tells stories from its history. She strolls by Melbourne’s rivers and creeks and considers the history of the wetlands and river that sit at Melbourne’s heart, for it is water—the corralling of it, the excess of it, the squandering of it, the lack of it—that defines Melbourne’s history, its present, and its future. Sophie Cunningham is the former editor of Meanjin Quarterly and a former publisher for Allen & Unwin, Penguin, and McPhee Gribble.

Australia in Afghanistan

Paul Daley Photographs by Michael Bowers

Karen Middleton

• Authors’ previous books sold more than 15,000 copies Almost a century after the Australian Light Horse cavalry and infantry fought a series of epic and bloody battles against the Turkish Army across the deserts of the Middle East, the steps of the men and boys who fought there are retraced in this extraordinary book. From the enemy trenches where they charged the Turks on horseback, to the narrow mountain passes—where, exhausted, they slept in their saddles in retreat— this account journeys to the hostile and lonely places where soldiers lost and buried their mates. Through battlefields still littered with shrapnel, bullet casings, and even the odd human bone, this part travelogue and part history reflects upon the collision of the turbulent Middle Eastern politics with the past.

Australians are embroiled in their nation’s longest military conflict—the war in Afghanistan—and this book charts from former Prime Minister John Howard’s presence in Washington, DC on September 11, 2001, to the “transition” plan to hand security to Afghan forces. Based on interviews with key political and military figures in Australia and abroad, here the tensions between political and military decision-making, the nature and potency of the U.S. alliance, and the influence of individual personalities in charting Australia’s course are laid bare in what was once dubbed the “good war.” Karen Middleton is a political journalist with more than 20 years of experience reporting on national and international affairs in print and broadcast media. She is the chief political correspondent with SBS Television and a former president of the Federal Parliamentary Press Gallery.

Paul Daley is an author, columnist, and multiple-award-winning journalist. He is the author of Beersheba. Michael Bowers is a freelance photographer, a regular commentator on ABC radio, and the host of ABC TV’s “Talking Pictures” on Insiders.

Wilf Mbanga and Trish Mbanga In 1966 the Republic of Botswana came into existence, and this is the tale of how one family played a central role in the country’s development. This biography focuses on the Khama family, and in particular, Seretse Khama: a statesman, chief, husband, and father. Dwelling on the last two aspects of this important figure, this account demonstrates how, in the face of great difficulties and opposition, Sereste and Ruth—a black man and a white woman—were united in a fruitful marriage that showed the world how people from different traditions might live happily. In many respects, their personal story, so movingly recounted here, mirrors the beliefs of the country itself, for Botswana has always stressed the importance of social harmony.

Someone Else’s Child

Babylon

A Surrogate’s Story

Mick, an English backpacker, heads to the north of Australia for sun, women, and a shot at making a fortune working the shrimp trawlers. While looking for adventure, Mick hitches a ride with the enigmatic Dan who leads him into more trouble and depravity than even the most reckless traveler could stomach. As the pair speed through the apocalyptic landscape—in a spiral of escalating violence—Dan reveals the world as seen through his eyes, and Mick’s true nature is exposed. A game of psychological cat-and-mouse, this is the gripping tale of two men—one struggling to become the definition of a “man,” and the other plotting to make his cruelest intentions a reality.

Sue Phillips In her late 30s, with three children of her own, Sue Phillips made the decision to carry a baby for a couple who were unable to conceive; she was not asked to do so nor was she to benefit financially as a result. The only memoir of its kind, this account gives a human voice to this very clinical and legal process. Based on Phillips’s journal, this book details her journey as she considers the possible ramifications on her family and experiences the minefield of bureaucratic, legal, and ethical complexities, the challenges of the IVF process, the pregnancy itself, and, of course, the aftermath of the birth and its effects on all concerned. Thought-provoking and incredibly moving, it exposes the emotional truth of what it is to become a surrogate. Sue Phillips is the manager of Children and Family Services at Uniting Care, the community services network of the Uniting Church, in Canberra, Australia.

The Boundary Nicole Watson

Sing No Sad Songs

In this moving and compelling memoir, the story of 22-year-old Rebecca Arnold is told. She was diagnosed with a rare and vicious cancer and, 13 months later, this vibrant, talented young woman was dead as her family was left to cope with a tidal wave of grief and loss. Neither sentimental nor voyeuristic, this personal journey is instead a restrained telling—by Rebecca’s mother, Sandra—that is powerfully redemptive.

When a multimillion-dollar development threatens the sacred site of one of Australia’s Aboriginal populations, the Corrowa people file a native claim over the site. Hours after Justice Brosnan rejects the claim, he is dead. Days later, the developer’s lawyer is also killed. As the body count rises, it becomes clear that the key to unlocking the murderer’s identity the single red feather left behind at each crime scene. Filled with suspense and grisly detail, this book follows detectives Jason Matthews, a young Aboriginal policeman, and Andrew Higgins, a wizened cop possessed by his need for revenge, as they attempt to investigate the murders and stay impartial. A fast-paced crime novel as well as a cutting social commentary, this narrative puts native title and contemporary Australian issues under the microscope.

Sandra Arnold is a professor at Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology and the author of A Distraction of Opposites and Tomorrow’s Empire.

Nicole Watson is a senior research fellow at the Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia, and a columnist for Tracker.

• Part of the Exile Classics series Combining romance with the darker side of human nature, this novel opens with the hanging of an ex-World War I soldier for involuntary murder. The element of violence blends with a love story involving the late soldier’s sister, who seeks to possess the life of her brother’s closest friend, John Hughes. Hughes then finds himself drawn into the circle affected by the hanging, contemplating murdering the sister himself. Capturing the terror of a war abroad as it penetrates the tranquility of a small town, this tale illustrates how a man’s death can haunt those who endure his execution.

With contributions from the likes of Farmer, Goodes, Long, Rioli, and Winmar, this account demonstrates the experiences of the indigenous male on the field of play and in contemporary Australian society.

Known as the “Warlpiri Warrior,” the “Jurrahcane,” and “Cougar,” Liam Jurrah is a rising star of the Australian Football League (AFL), and this compelling biography follows Jurrah’s journey from the remote Aboriginal desert community of Yuendumu to the bright lights of the AFL.

Maldevelopment Anatomy of a Global Failure Second edition Samir Amin With great clarity, this updated edition explains the complex changes of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, including the transformations in Eastern Europe and in the world economy, the growth of capitalism in China and its materialist goals being increasingly questioned by new social movements including the Greens. Written by a well-known political economist, this analysis addresses problems specific to the third world, with particular emphasis on the crisis of the African continent. As it examines the failure of development from a political standpoint, this account argues that the world needs to be remade on the basis of an alternative social system that is national, popular, and based on cooperation between the countries of the southern hemisphere.

Economic Crisis & Democratic Malaise in Canada

Ralph Lattimore and Shamubeel Eaqub • Author’s previous books sold more than 12,000 copies In this book, leading economists assemble key data to provide an analytical introduction to the contemporary New Zealand economy. Interpreting key economic indicators over time—gross domestic product and interest rates, population, employment and productivity levels, trade and investment, and government accounts—this examination focuses particularly on two issues: globalization and the rise of the Asian economies during the past 30 years, and the origins and continuing effects of the 2007–08 global financial crisis. Rich with local data and case studies, this is a clear and concise assessment of the current structure and performance of New Zealand’s economy from a historical and global perspective. Ralph Lattimore is a consulting economist for the New Zealand Institute for Economic Research. Shamubeel Eaqub is the principal economist at the New Zealand Institute for Economic Research and a former economist for Goldman Sachs JBWere (NZ) Ltd.

Stephen McBride and Heather Whiteside Examining Canadian political and economic developments of the 21st century, this study analyzes the dynamics of Canadian politics in the era of neoliberal globalization. The survey contends 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 approach to the recent financial crisis is highlighted, arguing that it is failing to challenge the policies that are fundamental to the system and culpable for the crisis. Illustrating the legacy of the Canadian political system, this discussion encourages consideration of the relationship between neoliberalism and crisis as well as their role in democratic decline. Stephen McBride is a professor of political science and Canada Research Chair in public policy and globalization at McMaster University. He is the author of Dismantling a Nation and Paradigm Shift. He lives in Hamilton, Ontario. Heather Whiteside is a doctoral candidate in political science at Simon Fraser University. She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Human Rights Act and the Assault on Liberty Rights and Asylum in the UK Parnesh Sharma Demonstrating that the state of civil liberties and human rights in the United Kingdom are quite perilous, this case study looks at the role of rights vis-à-vis social change and culture. Empirically examining the Human Rights Act (HRA), with asylum serving as the main case study, the book focuses on law in action, based on extensive fieldwork and framed against current events. It also discusses the role of Section 55—a law enacted at the same time as the HRA that was an antithesis of what the HRA promised and which forced thousands of asylum-seekers into destitution. Though Section 55 was eventually defeated, asylum-seekers in the UK are still powerless and marginalized. This thoughtful analysis of the use of rights laws to advance social causes presents both potential and pitfalls, making it useful for sociologists, activists, and nongovernmental organizations. Parnesh Sharma is a former adjudicator at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada and is the author of Aboriginal Fishing Rights: Law, Courts, Politics. He lives in North Vancouver, British Columbia.

A council officer shuts down a Sydney art exhibition that sends a political message about the Iraq war; Big Day Out organizers are attacked for requesting that attendees not wear the Australian flag after the Cronulla riots. Why are Australians getting free speech wrong? Despite its professed support of free speech, Australia is remarkably tolerant of activities that curtail it. Arguing that freedom of speech is a vital democratic freedom, this account investigates a wide range of political expression to discover what value Australians place on free speech. Filled with controversial examples to fuel the debate, it questions the efficacy and extent of the public’s commitment to freedom of speech in Australian political culture. This important book rethinks freedom of speech and encourages citizens to be more active in running their country.

Conflict Resolution and Status

The Criminalisation of Youth

The Case of Georgia and Abkhazia (1989–2008)

Juvenile Justice in Europe, Turkey and Canada

Céline Francis

Edited by Francis Bailleau and Yves Cartuyvels

An examination of the Georgia versus Abkhazia case, this account explores how and to what extent the difference in status between a sovereign state and an unrecognized entity hinders conflict resolution activities. Based on intensive fieldwork and unedited negotiation material, it provides an in-depth analysis of the negotiations, informal dialogues, and grassroots activities that took place in Georgia and Abkhazia between 1989 and 2008.

Transformations to the criminal justice system in Western societies are often linked with broader social and cultural changes, and this work presents the recent changes in juvenile justice in Canada and nine European countries and the sociopolitical context in which they take place. The study provides a comparison of the sentencing practices of each country, focusing on three dimensions related to the sanction practices: the custodial sanctions, the alternative sanctions, and the extension of the judicial thinking into relative fields such as school, training, and social policies. It illustrates that changes in juvenile justice policies are not specifically the result of differences in crime rates or the evolution of deviant youth behavior, but rather the effect of complex interactions with a variety of social, economical, cultural, and political factors.

Vanishing Schools, Threatened Communities The Contested Schoolhouse in Maritime Canada 1850–2010 Paul W. Bennett Exploring the phenomenon of school closures, this study highlights how traditional schoolhouses and neighborhood 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. It focuses on Maritime Canada from 1850 to the present day and examines the rise of common schooling from one-room schoolhouses that encouraged local democratic control to the rise of “super-sized” schools governed by a vast bureaucracy that silences public participation. The relationship between school closures and a decline in community is clearly shown and the book encourages a return to the principles that formed the basis of the public education system in order to better serve the needs of children and their communities.

Alex Calder A study of the relationship between writing, place, and the history of the Pakeha/European settlement in New Zealand, this book explores the most frequently chosen settings in classic New Zealand literature—the beach, the farm, the bush, and the suburb—and reflects on the plots and storylines that go with them. Through fascinating and unpredictable readings of some of the country’s greatest works, writers such as Curnow, Frame, Mansfield, and Sargeson are viewed from new angles, while neglected masterpieces by Guthrie-Smith and Maning are deemed central to New Zealand tradition. Topics include identity, cross-culturalism, the settling and unsettling of land, suburbanization, and the role of distance.

The Sons of Clovis (Literary Hoaxes)

A Prescription for Change

David Brooks

The Terry White Story

A fascinating study of literary hoaxes as part of a wide-ranging journey through literature, culture, and poetics, this book offers a fresh look into Australia’s Ern Malley affair. In the mid 1940s, writers James McAuley and Harold Stewart submitted a series of poems to the modernist literary magazine Angry Penguins under the fictitious name Ern Malley; “Ernest” because they weren’t, and “mal” to play on the French word for “bad.” Their aim was to demonstrate their utter disdain for modern poetry by deliberately writing bad verse, hastily concocted by lifting lines from whatever came to hand blended with self-conscious hints at meaning. In a flurry of excitement, the poems were published in a special edition proclaiming the discovery of an important new Australian voice. Uncovering some astounding evidence that challenges all accepted truths about the hoax and its origins, this revelatory account combines the authority of an academic classic with the narrative tension of a thriller.

Nine Lives Postwar Women Writers Making Their Mark Susan Sheridan An illuminating group biography of the fascinating women who contributed to the postwar era’s literary renaissance, this account traces the early careers of nine notable Australian writers—Jessica Anderson, Thea Astley, Rosemary Dobson, Dorothy Auchterlonie Green, Gwen Harwood, Dorothy Hewett, Elizabeth Jolley, Amy Witting, and Judith Wright—born between 1915 and 1925, who each achieved success between the mid 1940s and the 1970s. Reflecting on the politics of the times and the feminine condition, this book considers why their careers developed differently from those of their male counterparts and how they balanced marriage, family, and writing. An engaging read, it offers a fresh perspective on mid-20th-century Australian literature and the women writers who helped to shape it.

The Hard Light of Day

Indifferent Inclusion

An Artist’s Story of Friendships in Arrernte Country

Aboriginal People and the Australian Nation

Rod Moss

Russell McGregor

Written over the course of 25 years, this book is a candidly brutal and groundbreaking account of race relationships and friendships in the central Australian town of Alice Springs. In the early 1980s, artist Rod Moss arrived to teach painting in Alice Springs and soon was adopted as a family member by the local Arrernte people. Keeping a journal during the next three decades, he chronicled his experiences as he taught, struggled to paint, raised his children, and immersed himself completely in the Arrernte lifestyle. Filled with evocative photographs and paintings, this rare insight into the reality of life there illustrates the endemic violence, alcoholism, and rampant ill health as well as the enriching and transformative power of Arrernte friendships and culture.

Combining the perspectives of political, social, and cultural history in a coherent narrative, this account is a holistic interpretation of the complex relationship between Indigenous and settler Australians during the middle of the 20th century. As it provides a cogent analysis of how the relationship changed, this record focuses on the quest for Aboriginal inclusion in the Australian nation—a task that dominated the Aboriginal agenda at the time—and challenges existing scholarship and assumptions, particularly around assimilation. Arguing that inclusion was not a function of political lobbying and parliamentary decision making, this is an insightful history of the changing nature of race relations in Australia.

Rod Moss is a an artist who is represented by the Anna Pappas Gallery in Melobourne, the Fireworks Gallery in Brisbane, and the Peta Appleyeard Gallery in Alice Springs. He is the recipient of the Northern Territory Book of the Year Award.

Russell McGregor is an associate professor of history at James Cook University in Australia. He is the author of Collisions of Cultures and Identities: Settlers and Indigenous Peoples and Imagined Destinies: Aboriginal Australians and the Doomed Race Theory, 1880–1939.

Breaking the Sheep’s Back Charles Massy The 10-billion-dollar collapse of the wool industry is considered one of Australia’s biggest business disasters, and for the first time, the shocking true story behind this colossal collapse is revealed. Spanning 170 years from the birth of the industry in 1840 and its boom during the 1950s through its unraveling from 1980 to 1991, this is a searing account of greed, political corruption, and heavyhanded protectionism. As it uncovers the never-before-seen archival sources, government and board papers, and private correspondence and shares exclusive interviews with key whistle blowers, this narrative unveils the gripping true story of government corruption in a seemingly untouchable industry. Charles Massy is the founder of the leading merino stud Severn Park and is recognized as an innovator in marketing and merino genetics. He is the author of The Australian Merino and of several articles on the wool industry, merino and wool history, and the environment. He has also held positions on the boards of the Australian Wool Research and Promotion Organization and the International Wool Secretariat.

Joan Martin (Yarrna)

Belonging Together

A Widi Woman

Dealing with the Politics of Disenchantment in Australian Indigenous Affairs Policy

Joan Martin and Bruce Shaw The life story of Joan Martin is that of a fierce Aboriginal woman who fought for the rights of her community and her autobiography also tells of the Aboriginal experience in general since World War II. Born in the country town of Morawa, Western Australia, in 1941, Martin led an exciting and adventurous life filled with great challenges—including her efforts to avoid Native Welfare, so as not to be shipped to a mission, and her later very public battle with Homeswest for the right to live in peace in her own home. Joan played a central part in the native title claim of the Widi, which unfortunately proved unsuccessful. Her stories reveal the interconnected themes of family, teaching bush lore to her children, and celebrating the Widi culture through her art, as well as tales of conflicts with mining companies and white bureaucracies. Joan Martin is a Widi woman and artist whose work includes a large mosaic in the foyer of the Center for Aboriginal Studies at the Curtin University in Australia. Bruce Shaw is an Australian writer and anthropologist. He is the author of Our Heart Is the Land and When the Dust Come in Between.

Patrick Sullivan Comprehensive and optimistic, this examination describes current Indigenous affairs policy in Australia, concentrating on the period following the end of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission in 2004. It provides a unique overview of the trajectory of current policy, advancing a new consolidated approach to Indigenous policy that moves beyond the debate over self-determination and assimilation. Arguing that the interests of Indigenous peoples, settlers, and immigrants are fundamentally shared, it proposes adaptation on both sides, but particularly for the descendants of settlers and immigrants. Advancing the body of knowledge in the field of the anthropology of policy and public administration, this empirical study is a must-read for policymakers, academics, and indigenous peoples alike. Patrick Sullivan is an anthropologist who has studied the engagement of Aboriginal people with the Australian Public Sector for almost 30 years. He is the author of Policy Change and the Indigenous Land Corporation.

Reinventing the Workers’ Movement

Edited by Cosroe Chaqueri

Edited by Cosroe Chaqueri

David Camfield Most people in the Canadian working class do not see themselves as part of a crusade, despite being members of unions, and this analysis suggests a radical reinvention of the working-class movement in Canada. First chronicling the historical development of the movement, from the structure of unions and other organizations to their activities and even the guiding ideology, it then offers an explanation for its current state, contending that reform within the movement is not enough. Featuring critical examinations of the workers’ movement and unions in Canada with voices from each, the author presents a new way forward in reaching the goal of reform.

The first of three, this volume explores Iranian history from 1905 to 1940 and past events in which Iran has grabbed the world’s attention. Discussing the failure of the workers’ and socialist movement, where opportunities seem to have appeared and been snuffed out at crucial times, it also explains the reactionary role of British imperialism during this period. Eschewing easy answers, this record critically reviews the roles of Lenin and Theodore Rothstein in subordinating Iranian working class interests to those of the Russian state. Detailed and authoritative, with many relevant documents never before available in English, this volume gives a new and real understanding of early Iranian socialist and radical movements.

Based on many original documents, this book surveys Iranian political history from 1941 through 1957, focusing on the Tudeh Party: the only substantial leftwing organization in Iran during this period. Topics include the party’s relationship with the labor movement in Iran; its place in the mass movement demanding the nationalization of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company; its attitudes towards the country’s various governments; its relationship with the Soviet Union; and, in particular, its dealing with Moscow’s attempt to establish a pro-Soviet autonomous government in Iranian Azerbaijan in 1945. As it discusses the various blunders and failures made by the party over the years, this history considers how close the Tudeh Party came to being destroyed following the muses on the Anglo-American coup d’état against Mosaddeq’s government in 1953.

A Concise History of the Qing Dynasty series Dai Yi The Qing Dynasty was a feudal institution established by the upper dominant class of the Manchu ethnic minority—and the last of the feudal autocratic monarchy dynasties in China’s long history. This book provides an account of the history of the Manchurian rise, their peak and decline, and their eventual demise, but, above all, it is an account of the significant history of the development, creation, and struggle for a modern China. Spread across four volumes, this record begins with the ancestry and rise of Manchu and ends at the Opium War in 1840, after which China entered the modern historical period and great revolutionary changes took place in society that were fundamentally different from those of the early and mid-Qing Dynasty. Dai Yi has served as director of the history department and as director of the Research Institute of Chinese History at Renmin University of China. He is the author or editor of more than 30 books, including China and the World in the 18th Century and A Yearbook of the Qing Dynasty.

Good Places to Live Poverty and Public Housing in Canada Jim Silver • Author’s previous books sold more than 10,000 copies Demonstrating how public housing projects are stigmatized and stereotyped as havens of poverty, illegal activity, and violence, this study contends that the problems with which they are so often associated are not inherent but the result of structural inequalities and neoliberal government policies. It urges a reconsideration of the fate of this type of housing tenure, arguing that urban poverty— dubbed as “spatially concentrated racialized poverty” by the author—is not solved by razing public housing. Instead, he illustrates how these projects can be rebuilt from within based on their communities’ strengths and supported by meaningful public investment.

• Author’s previous books sold more than 13,000 copies • Part of the About Canada series Examining the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child, this study analyzes each of its rights within the Canadian context—and finds Canada wanting. The argument contends that although the country’s expressed desire is to protect and care for its children, the reality is that young people—in Canada and around the world—often lack basic human rights. Illustrating how children are steeped in abuse from the education and justice systems, exploited by corporations and in the sex trade, and suffer from ill health and poverty, this volume also demonstrates that while the hearts of Canadians go out to oppressed youth in distant countries, very little sympathy is spent on the suffering of young people close to home. This survey explores these contradictory views, evincing that more must be done to ensure that children’s rights are upheld.

• Part of the About Canada series Challenging the notions that immigrants steal jobs away from qualified Canadians, abuse the healthcare system, and refuse to participate in Canadian culture, this investigation delves into the realities of immigrating to Canada. It contends that the country’s historical immigration policies have always been fundamentally racist and argues that current policies still favor certain kinds of applicants. The number of highly trained and educated professionals who have recently immigrated is highlighted, revealing how few of them find work in their area of expertise despite their potential for making significant contributions. This study also illustrates how Canada needs construction workers, nannies, and agricultural workers—but how very few immigrants who do this work qualify for citizenship. Underscoring the need to move beyond the myths, it encourages an immigration policy that meets the needs of Canadian society. Nupur Gogia holds a PhD in sociology and equity studies in education.

The Agrarian Question in the Neoliberal Era

Readings in the ANC Tradition

Primitive Accumulation and the Peasantry

Volume I: Policy and Praxis

Utsa Patnaik and Sam Moyo Preface by Issa Shivji This account is a compelling and critical destruction of both the English agricultural revolution and the theory of comparative advantage, upon which unequal trade has been justified for three centuries. It argues that these ideas have been used to disguise the fact that the North—from the time of colonialism to the present day—has used the much greater agricultural productivity of the South to feed and improve the living standards of its own people while impoverishing the South. Arguing that political stability hangs in the balance, this book calls for labor-intensive small-scale production, new thinking about which agricultural commodities are produced, the redistribution of the means of food production, and increased investment in rural development. Utsa Patnaik is a professor of economics and the author of several books, including The Republic of Hunger and Other Essays. Sam Moyo is the executive director of the African Institute for Agrarian Studies in Harare, Zimbabwe. Issa Shivji is a former professor of law and the author of more than a dozen books.

African Awakening The Emerging Revolutions

Throwing Down White Man

Edited by Sokari Ekine and Firoze Manji

Cape Rule and Misrule in Colonial Lesotho, 1871–1884

An insightful and comprehensive compilation of the year’s events, this record offers in-the-moment comment and analysis as well as informed reflection on the 2011 African uprisings. While the tumultuous uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya have seized the attention of media analysts, the concurrent rebellions in Benin, Gabon, Senegal, Swaziland, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Uganda, and in other parts of the African continent have gone virtually unnoticed. Arguing that these disturbances are the result of decades of declining living standards, mass unemployment, land dispossessions, and impoverishment of the majority, this account provides an overview of the struggle for democratization, which constitutes a reawakening of the spirit of freedom and justice for all.

One of several wars in southern Africa at the time, the Gun War was different in one, all-important respect: the whites were humiliatingly defeated, or at least decisively held at bay. Presenting oral traditions and archival sources with meticulous care, this history lays bare the narrower interests and conflicting perspectives among the Basotho chiefs and the local officials as well as the larger forces at work in the region. Compelling and absorbing, this study of the Gun War will interest historians and academics alike. Peter Sanders is the former chief executive for the Commission for Racial Equality and the author of Medicine Murder in Colonial Lesotho: The Anatomy of a Moral Crisis.

The First President A Life of John L. Dube, Founding President of the ANC Heather Hughes A full biography of the founding president of the African National Council (ANC), this account uncovers the inspirations for John L. Dube’s many public achievements. Tracing the history of his forbearers in the Zulu kingdom, this volume chronicles the politician’s life from his birth in 1871, and highlights his many achievements, including the founding of the Ohlange School, the key role he played in the Bhambatha Rebellion, and the authorship of the first Zulu novel. As it evaluates Dube’s five-year presidency of the ANC, this book shows that in spite of the many conflicts and ambiguities in his position, Dube’s central political belief—that Africans should be directly represented in the parliament of the land—remained remarkably constant throughout his long career. Heather Hughes is the Principal Teacher fellow at the University of Lincoln and a former African politics and history professor at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. She has published in the areas of human rights and southern African history and heritage. AFRICAN STUDIES/HISTORY 288 PAGES, 6 X 9.25 TRADE PAPER, $35.95 (CAN $39.95)

Martin Edmond • Author’s previous books sold more than 17,000 copies In 1984, on his way to a major exhibition opening, celebrated New Zealand painter Colin McCahon went missing for 24 hours in Sydney, Australia. He was discovered by police the next day on a bench in Centennial Park with no identification and suffering from amnesia; by all accounts, McCahon was never quite the same from this night until his death three years later. This work of creative nonfiction underscores the life and work of Colin McCahon and traces a possible McCahon route across Sydney, wandering through bars and flop houses, streets and churches. Exploring key issues, such as the attractions of the bottle, the role of faith and religion, the illuminating power of the imagination, and the hold of family relationships, this record chronicles not only a mysterious incident but also the life and art of the man who lived it. Martin Edmond is a screenwriter, a poet, an editor, and the author of numerous books, including Chronicle of the Unsung, which won the Montana New Zealand Book Award, Luca Antara, and Zone of the Marvellous.

Andrew Robb

Christine Nixon and Jo Chandler

Blanche d’Alpuget

In this frank and honest account, Andrew Robb describes his unspoken fear that what he passed off as “not being good in the mornings” was something darker: a black dog whose daily visit lasted longer as the years passed. Worried about stigmas and letting people down, he avoided confronting the problem for four decades, the adrenaline of high-pressure and high-profile jobs offering the ideal antidote. Ultimately, achieving his goals meant having to face up to this very private demon. This autobiography details the challenges of managing depression, political ambition, and life in the Liberal Party. Robb’s devotion to the Liberal cause gave him the impetus to tackle his condition. Little did he know that it would also allow for greater freedom, opportunity, and meaning in his life.

Honest and engaging, this memoir reveals the remarkable rise through police ranks of Australia’s first female chief commissioner. A police officer for more than 35 years, Christine Nixon shares the pressures of a life in the public eye and coping with difficult aspects of the job, such as losing a colleague in the line of duty. Documenting a cultural shift in policing as well as in the role of women in Australia, this narrative portrays Nixon’s eight year tenure as being characterized by her tough anticorruption stance, her frequently acrimonious relationship with the police association, and her high approval ratings with the Victorian public. Written from a unique point of view, this account explores one woman’s personal and professional life.

Based on exhaustive research and interviews, this record is a meticulous portrait of wily and brilliant Australian politician, Bob Hawke. Candid and detailed, this account underscores Hawke’s achievements, such as his victory over Labor leader Bill Hayden, his appointment as prime minister, and his involvement in the precarious game of international politics in the last days the Cold War. Rich with intrigue and drama, this reference also includes an in-depth analysis of how power is deployed and how elections are won in Australia.

Christine Nixon was the first woman in Australia to be appointed a police commissioner. Jo Chandler is a senior writer with the Age newspaper, writing in-depth reports and analysis across a broad spectrum of topics, but with a particular interest in humanitarian and women’s issues, aid and development, indigenous affairs, and climate change.

Blanche d’Alpuget is a journalist and the author of numerous books, including Mediator: A Biography of Sir Richard Kirby, On Longing, and Winter in Jerusalem. She is the recipient of various literary prizes, including the Age Novel of the Year Award, the Australasian Prize for Commonwealth Literature, and the South Australian Premier’s Award.

The Shakespearean Ethic John Vyvyan • New in paper • Author’s previous books sold more than 15,000 copies With modesty and conviction, this edition offers a viewpoint seldomly considered: an unusual and exceptionally clear insight into Shakespeare’s philosophy. Appreciating the danger Shakespeare faced in writing at a time of major religious intolerance, this fresh examination demonstrates how subtly his plays allegorically explore aspects of the perennial philosophy. In doing so, it argues, Shakespeare raises the fundamental question of ethics. Both thought-provoking and persuasive, this book also contrasts Hamlet with Measure for Measure and Othello with The Winter’s Tale in order to expose the dilemmas that confront its heroes. John Vyvyan, a Shakespearean scholar of note, was offered a visiting lectureship at the State University of New York.

After he experiences a disconcerting vision regarding one of his friends, he is rendered incapable of reviewing his own history until many years later, when this fictional account begins a voyage through his consciousness. This cyclical tale removes the props of linear narrative and conventional characterization, offering a compensating Proustian richness of sensuous associations. This powerful exploration of memory also delves into a political dimension, questioning the connection between the 1948 anticolonial movement’s challenge of British power over Guyanese lives and the 1964 civil war between Africans and Indians in the South American state.

Stories

Opal Palmer Adisa

Second edition

From loss, illness, and addiction to spooky offspring, dry skin, and inexplicable hope, this collection of “pretty” stories demonstrates how decidedly average people can be mortified—if not devastated— by new circumstances. A middle-aged, HIV-positive gay man, deformed by the side effects of protease inhibitors, is savaged by the flippant small talk of canny young men. A fundamentalist Christian housewife thrills from her newfound carnality, only to be saddled with the homeschooling of her four special-needs children. A washed-up but content pop star is pursued by a pair of shrill documentary filmmakers intent on turning the woman’s life into arty tragedy, even if it kills them all. Mordant, brash, hysterically funny yet always compassionate, these stories give voice to characters moved to speak in spite of themselves.

Glen Peters • $20,000 marketing budget • New in paper With recipes, murder, intrigue, and vernacular from another era, this crime novel recaptures the tastes and turbulence of 1960s Calcutta as the city struggles with the changes pressing upon the country. Raised herself by the nuns of St. Mary’s, the young, widowed Mrs. D’Silva is particularly troubled when the body of Agnes Lai, a ward of the nuns of the Loreto Convent, washes up on the marshes of the Hooghly River. Mrs. D’Silva finds herself speculating on whether Agnes was murdered and if anyone cares when young girls go missing every day. Her horror increases when Anil Sen, a former student of Mrs. D’Silva and a close friend of Agnes, is charged with killing a factory worker during a riot. The investigations are headed nowhere, and soon the situation evolves into shambles—until Mrs. D’Silva discovers her detective instincts.

It’s November 1948, and the widowed Hanora Sparrow and her teenage daughters, Aria and Rosy, have fallen on tough times.

A Fish Trapped Inside the Wind

Into Suez

Christien Gholson In a small town in Belgium near the French border on the morning of Saint Woelfred’s festival, dead fish lie on the ground, scattered everywhere, as if blown in by the wind. The quarries that were once active now stand empty and will soon be used as toxic waste dumps. Are the fish a sign from the saint? Or simply a cruel trick played by Contexture, the dance group who once stripped naked at the Vatican? Blending a realistic portrayal of communal life with elements of fantasy and surrealism, including the lost poems of Arthur Rimbaud, this story narrates how six lives from this provincial town are changed forever.

(Mi’raj al-tashawwuf ila haqa’iq al-tasawwuf) A Lexicon of Sufic Terminology Ahmad ibn ’Ajiba, Translated by Mohamed Fouad Aresmouk and Michael Abdurrahman Fitzgerald Written by 18th-century Moroccan scholar and mystic Ahmad ibn ’Ajiba, this book defines Sufic terminology. Based on four published Arabic editions of the Mi’raj and two manuscript versions, this translation is supplemented by excerpts from some of Ibn ’Ajiba’s other works, which offer insights about the essential notions of Sufism: repentance, integrity, love, patience, gratitude, and the Eternal Wine. This bilingual edition—Arabic and English—celebrates Ahmad ibn ’Ajiba’s belief that coming to know and reflect upon these notions could be, in itself, a sort of ascending meditative journey. Ahmad ibn ’Ajiba was an 18th-century Moroccan saint in the Darqawa Sufi Sunni Islamic lineage. Mohamed Fouad Aresmouk is the author of al-Rashad fi zabdati al-Awrad. Michael Abdurrahman Fitzgerald is the director of the Center for Language and Culture.

Shaikh Amin ’Ala ad-Din an-Naqshbandi Translated by Dr. Muhammad Sharif Ahmad and Muhtar Holland Unlike most English-language books on Sufism—which tend to reflect on the sociocultural orientations of the modern West—this account provides a window into the living Sufism of the KhalidiNaqshbandi of Kurdistan. In this sense, Sufism is quite unique as it contextualizes the practice both historically and within the Islamic religious milieu. With reviews on the 25 stations experienced by Sufis, from repentance to servanthood, this reference also discusses 15 common altered states of consciousness as well as technical terms, praiseworthy and blameworthy attributes, and the Naqshbandi path. Given its comprehensive content, this book offers a solid basis upon which to understand authentic Sufi practice. Shaikh Amin ’Ala ad-Din an-Naqshbandi was the paramount Naqshbandi shaykh in Kurdistan and great-grandson of Mawlana Khalid, the founder of the Khalidi-Naqshbandi Sufi lineage. Dr. Muhammad Sharif Ahmad was a professor at Baghdad University. Muhtar Holland was a translator of Sufi books, including Rashahat-i ayn al-hayat.

Behind the Rhetoric Mental Health Recovery in Ontario Jennifer Poole Revealing how the concept of recovery has taken the world of mental health by storm, this survey focuses specifically on Ontario’s mental health communities, taking the first critical look at the rhetoric behind the concept. Its approach is from the perspectives of practitioners, survivors, professionals, critics, and supporters. Foucault’s analyses of discourse are utilized, and the study delves into the inherent messages of hope and responsibility, retheorizing within a Canadian context. Exploring the origins of this vision for mental health, this study illustrates what this concept really means for a system that has previously been unbalanced.

A History of the Pacific Islands Second edition

Nature’s Force That Shapes Our Lives

Ian C. Campbell

Lawrence Fagg

Spanning the social, political, and economic history of the Pacific Islands— which include Micronesia, Melanesia, and Polynesia—this book provides an overview of this complex and changing area. It has been updated to detail the first settlement of the islands by raft and canoe voyagers, presenting a new theory. It then covers the centuries of Western contact, cultural influence, colonialism, and the coming of independence. Including key political changes that have occurred in the first decade of the new millennium, this new edition brings into focus the rich past of this diverse region.

A refreshingly rich and encompassing perspective of our world, this examination demonstrates how, of the four forces of physical nature, it is electromagnetic force that activates nature as well as our bodies and brains. Arguing that electromagnetism plays an indispensable role in virtually all of modern technology, this book conveys how deeply embedded and intimately linked human beings are to earthly nature. Using lucid, understandable terms, it explains the electromagnetic workings of some of the core devices of modern technology—such as the transistor and radar—and shares a number of engaging vignettes about its discoverers and well as anecdotes drawn from the author’s own experience.

Alistair Dermer and Danielle Wood With stunning landscape photographs and informative essays, this pictorial explores Australia’s Macquarie Island, a sliver of unexpected rock in the vast Southern Ocean. Touching upon the island’s unique history—including shipwrecks, seal slaughters, and a damaged ecosystem resulting from human interference—this record with an ecological theme is a tribute to one of the world’s great wildlife refuges. Alistair Dermer is in natural resource management with the Conservation Volunteers Australia, Greencorp, and, most recently, to Bush Heritage Australia.

Andrew Lansdown and Kevin Gillam Introduction by Lisa Gorton

• Author’s previous books sold more than 10,000 copies Well-loved authors and books appear suddenly; hair-raising anecdotes and football matches become occasions for elegiac comedy; and music and domestic ritual raise ghosts. This emotionally intense poetry collection explores several continents, moods, and stages of life— including the common experiences of growing up, growing older, losing a parent, being in love, and enjoying the natural world. Both formal and informal, funny and sad, these lyrical poems seek out a strangeness in the everyday. Will Eaves is an English professor at the University of Warwick in England and the former arts editor of the Times Literary Supplement. He is the author of Nothing to Be Afraid Of and The Oversight.

Combining East and West, this volume of poetry and prose ruminations presents a celebration of the international language of fauna—the animals that reside at the core of the imagination. Each letter of the alphabet is linked to a different living thing, allowing these creatures to exist in the fabric of language and providing a categorical list of the beings that travel within thoughts and dreams. In the tradition of the Eastern voice and the Western custom of exegesis and explanation, this volume allows two very different approaches to literature to converge, creating an experience that is accessible, informative, and entertaining. H. Masud Taj is an oral poet, an architect, and a professor of architecture at Carleton University. His poems have been featured in several anthologies, and his works are archived in the Special Poetry Collection of Carleton University. He lives in Ottawa, Ontario. Bruce Meyer is the author of The Golden Thread, as well as 30 books of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, pedagogy, and literary journalism. His broadcasts for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Radio One—The Great Books, Great Poetry, and A Novel Idea— are the network’s bestselling spoken word CD series. He lives in Barrie, Ontario.

Edited by Kwame Dawes • Co-op available • Editor’s previous books sold more than 10,000 copies On January 12, 2010, an earthquake broke apart the city of Port au Prince and stretches of the Haitian landscape, killing almost 300,000 and leaving 1.2 million people homeless. Collecting the work of more than 30 Haitian poets, this anthology offers a complex and sophisticated range of responses to the tragedy— poems about the rupture of love, the shock of a sudden catastrophe, the hunger for more beauty in the world, the shattering of landscapes, and ultimately, explorations of the incomprehensible nature of our mortality. Presenting French and Haitian Creole poems alongside their English translations, this trilingual work seeks to make sense of the natural disaster and its aftermath. Kwame Dawes is a poet, an editor, and the author of 17 books, including Bob Marley and Red. He is the founder and director of the USC Poetry Initiative. He lives in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The Twelve Foot Neon Woman

Australian Poetry Since 1788

Another Babylon

Loretta Collins Klobah

Edited by Robert Gray and Geoffrey Lehmann

A rare and unexplored world—where mythology and family converge—is brought to life in this poetry collection. Sensuous and deeply original, this work evokes tradition and fantasy while underscoring the intimate pulses of family, loss, and memory. With refreshing directness, the ancient world is reimagined; gods steal fruit from a man’s garden and longhaired goddesses sit on windowsills to eat chestnuts. This exciting compilation mixes ancient Babylon with the humble elements of daily life, bringing a rich new meaning to them all.

Against a soundtrack of world music— from salsa to reggae and jazz—and in a vibrant blend of English, Spanish, and Patois, this collection delivers tender hymns of homage to the Caribbean, American, and British metropolises. In a poetic form that is lyrical, narrative, sensual, and often experimental, it offers insight into the urgent social issues impacting the everyday world and its extraordinary people. As they seek connections across boundaries of geography, race, ethnicity, language, gender, age, and economic class, these poems express a hope for the future and the possibility for cultural metamorphosis. Loretta Collins Klobah is a professor of Caribbean literature and creative writing at the University of Puerto Rico. Her poetry has been anthologized in the 1996 Pushcart Prize Anthology, TriQuarterly New Writers, and the collection How Much Earth?

The first of its kind, this poetry anthology contains the work of Australia’s major poets as well as lesser-known but equally affecting writers of Australian poetry since 1788. Ranging from concrete to prose poems, from the cerebral to the naïve, from the humorous to the confessional, and from formal to free verse, this work also features translations of some striking Aboriginal song poems. With pieces from 170 Australian poets, as well as short critical biographies, this careful reevaluation of Australian poetry makes this a superb book that can be read and enjoyed over a lifetime. Robert Gray is an Australian poet and the author of numerous books, including Afterimages, The Land I Came Through Last, and Nameless Earth.
