Nicks, Joan; Grant, Barry Keith
This book closely examines some of the myriad forms of popular culture in the Niagara region of Canada. Essays consider common assumptions and definitions of what popular culture is and seek to determine whether broad theories of popular culture can explain or make sense of localised instances of popular culture and the cultural experiences of people in their daily lives. Among the many topics covered are local bicycle parades and war memorials, cooking and wine culture, radio and movie-going, music stores and music scenes, tourist sites, and blackface minstrel shows. The authors approach their subjects from a variety of critical and historical perspectives and employ a range of methodologies that includes cultural studies, textual analysis, archival research, and participant interviews. Altogether, the book provides a richly diverse mapping of the popular culture of a particular area of Canada and demonstrates the complexities of everyday culture. 376pp.

Designed for the semester or quarter course that is often called 'The Empiricists', this anthology is a slightly revised and greatly expanded version of the relevant sections of Modern Philosophy: An Anthology of Primary Sources. It contains a substantial abridgement of Locke's Essay, complete texts of Berkeley's Dialogues and Principles, and Hume's Inquiry, along with other key texts of the period -- in whole or in part -- which enhance the reader's understanding of modern philosophy and its relationship to the natural science of the time. 446pp.

Hindle Hazen, Margaret & M.Hazen, Robert
To examine the cultural context of fire in "combustible America" gathered more than 100 illustrations, most never before published, together with anecdotes and information from hundreds of original sources, including newspapers, diaries, company records, popular fiction, art and music.The result is an encyclopaedic history that ranges from stories of the tragic 'great fires' of the century to fire imagery in folktales and popular literature. Dealing more with technology than with fire in nature, the book provides a vast amount of information on fire manipulation and prevention in everyday life, discussing the people who worked with fire and against it. 281pp.
