Kantor, J. R.
This volume is a selection of papers representing the efforts of one student of psychology and of the history and analysis of science, to channel psychology towards the goal of natural science, and to urge that all the constructions of science (descriptions and interpretations) be derived exclusively from contacts with confronted things and events. As the earliest articles indicate, from his first professional concern with psychology, Dr. Kantor has been a reprobative witness of the spiral development of psychology from pure mentalism, through a behavioural era, and back to a modified mentalism. The author has chosen thirty-six papers that have been grouped into eleven sections, each covering important issues within the general scientific or specialised psychological domain. In every case the author's intention was to indicate the direction psychology and the other sciences should go in order to reach a naturalistic status. N.B. Small closed tear to bottom edge of rear D/J. 613pp.

Edited By During, Simon
"The Cultural Studies Reader" provides an introduction for students of this discipline. It presents a selection of influential and innovative essays in the field by writers such as Barthes, Adorno, Lyotard, Stuart Hall and Gayatri Spivak, with a succinct introduction to each. The book encompasses a wide range of topics, from sport to postmodernism, from museums to supermarkets, from gay writing to rock and roll, and covers every important cultural studies method and theory. The book can be used as much more than an introductory anthology: Simon During's introduction to the field surveys the history and development of cultural studies, from its origins in sociological analysis of post-war Britain to its present as a truly trans-national discipline. Looking at the future possibilities for cultural studies, he argues that cultural studies methodologies offer great potential for confronting such contemporary issues as postcolonialism, globalization and multiculturalism. 478pp. N.B. Small amount of underlining. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Reading crease to spine.

Gold, Jerome
In this title, publishers from 31 independent presses talk about how they came to publishing and why they stayed (or didn't), the mistakes they made, their relationships with authors, the problems of growth, definitions of success, why they do or do not seek grants, their relationships with distributors, bookstores, New York and Toronto, and each other. More than just a directory, "Publishing Lives" presents these publishers as the spiritual heirs of the nineteenth-century founders of the great New York houses. 570pp. N.B. Bottom corners of boards slightly bumped.

Butcher, Alan D.
Artist Frances Gage, born in 1924 in Windsor, experienced both artistic recognition and acute despair in her life, yet she flourished in her work and as part of the contemporary Toronto art scene. A friend of Frances Loring and Florence Wyle, she developed a greater connection with the Group of Seven, working closely with Frederick Varley and producing reliefs of both him and A Y Jackson while working in Tom Thomson's shack. Frances remained focused and positive and became a successful sculptor, creating more than five hundred works of art. Still, even though she achieved the dream she strove toward during all the years of struggle, she discovered that the Dante-like Paradise she had sought and gained was instead the poet's Inferno in disguise. Her correspondence, as referenced in this remarkable biography, bears out this insight in a life often marked by unsatisfying triumph over tragedy. It presents a candid view of one of Canada's most fascinating artists of the twentieth century. 263pp.
