Connors,Richard and Law,John M. Editors
This book analyses the principal events and processes that precipitated the emergence and formation of the law and legal culture of Alberta from the foundation of the Hudson's Bay in 1670 until the eve of the centenary of the Province in 2005. The formation of Alberta's constitution and legal institutions was by no means a simple process by which English and Canadian law was imposed upon a receptive and passive population. Challenges to authority, latent lawlessness, interaction between indigenous and settler societies, periods (pre- and post-1905) of jurisdictional confusion, and demands for individual, group, and provincial rights and recognitions are as much part of Alberta's legal history as the heroic and mythic images of an emergent and orderly Canadian west patrolled from the outset by red coated mounted police and peopled by peaceful and law-abiding subjects of the Crown. Papers focus on the development of criminal law in the Canadian west in the nineteenth century; the Natural Resources Transfer Agreement of 1930; the National Energy Program of the 1980s; Federal-Provincial relations; and the role and responsibilities of the offices of Justices of the Peace and of the Lieutenant-Governor; and the legacies of the Lougheed and Klein governments.N.B.Rear d/j cover slightly marked.

Meaney, Gerardine
Previous owners inscription to ffep."(Un)like Subjects" aims to present a significant new model for the relationship between women and writing; and theory and fiction. Gerardine Meaney addresses the issues of style and female relationships which have preoccupied the three most influential French feminist theorists and three contemporary women novelists. Meaney traces the connections between the theorists, Helene Cixous, Luce Irigaray and Julia Kristeva, and the literary practitioners, Doris Lessing, Muriel Spark and Angela Carter. Her reading of the work of these six women writers traces a new vision of femininity as expressed through literature, and demonstrates how theoretical and literary texts can reflect and illuminate each other. "(Un)like Subjects" is a book designed to provide readers with a new way forward in theorizing femininity. Opening up a relatively unexplored method of argument, it could be central to future discussions on the relationships within and between women's writings.255pp.

McMillan, Carol
'Women, Reason and Nature' argues an original and provocative case: that feminism, far from presenting a radical challenge to sexism, actually shares its most fundamental and mistaken assumptions about women's place in society. 165pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep.

Bryan, Liz
Liz Bryan explores and celebrates the amazing landscapes of British Columbia and traces the early history of this, Canada's western-most province. Through 18 picturesque country journeys, mostly in the Interior between the Rockies and the Coast Mountains, she takes readers through some of the most diverse and beautiful scenery in the country. British Columbia has everything: forests, rivers, lakes, grasslands, alpine peaks, sagebrush plateaus, desert valleys and badlands.This diversity can be explained in part by the province's remarkable geological history: it is not one land, but several, formed over time by unstoppable tectonic forces and modified by volcanic activity and glacial ice. In this title, much of the human history of the province, which closely follows the patterns of its geology, can be discovered along the network of roads stitching the province together. In this book, traces of the Native peoples' ancestral presence are found, along with those of the fur traders, explorers, gold miners, ranchers and homesteaders who settled here. This book offers an invitation to celebrate British Columbus' scenic heartland. Driving instructions and maps complement the text, and Bryan's colour photographs demonstrate the spectacular beauty of British Columbia. 190pp.

Fink, Paul M.
Beginning this volume with a chapter entitled "Prehistory," he goes on to chronicle the Indian troubles and other hardships suffered by those settling the frontier, their early government, development of trade and commerce, travel and the coming of the railroad, growth of churches and religion, as well as education and publications, and finally recording several pages of leftover bits of information under "Miscellany." His history of the oldest town in Tennessee was written in 1972, with financial aid through a Federal grant, and covers approximately the same period then under study for Jonesborough's preservation and restoration plans. In this "Second Edition", the original text remains intact, but more than one hundred photographs have been added along with a complete index. 203pp.N.B.Half inch closed tear to top left corner front d/j.
