Cunningham, Rosemary
Those who think arts and culture in British Columbia is a recent development might be surprised to learn that opera has been flourishing in the province for well over a hundred years. The first full performance in Victoria took place in 1877 and in Vancouver in 1891. This first-ever history of opera in BC celebrates important milestones for BC's two major companies: Vancouver Opera's 50th anniversary, with the 30th anniversary of Pacific Opera Victoria following in 2010. It also marks the recent upsurge in the popularity of the venerable art form, with new opera groups and simul-cast venues proliferating across the province. Illustrated with over 100 exquisite photographs and rare archival images, "Bravo!" traces the history of opera in the province from its colourful origins in touring companies, to the determined efforts of BC's opera pioneers who laid the foundations for two of Canada's most renowned opera companies, culminating with in-depth reporting on recent developments at Vancouver Opera and Pacific Opera Victoria. Special features include behind-the-scenes accounts of contemporary productions, full listings of Vancouver Opera, Pacific Opera Victoria and Modern Baroque Opera productions and detailed information on BC opera singers, composers and opera training in the province. 208pp.

Hettinga, Kathy T.
Beginning in 1994, award-winning photographer and installation artist Kathy T Hettinga began a fourteen-year project to document an unknown body of funerary folk art displayed in the cemeteries of rural and largely Hispanic communities in the San Luis Valley in southern Colorado. Her photographs of unique grave markers made of wood, concrete, metal, sandstone, glass and other materials by individuals or families to commemorate the passing of love ones capture the ethereal beauty of the cemeteries and serve as a touchstone for our common understanding of loss, grief, and the need to memorialise and pay tribute. 178pp.

Yarnold, Barbara M.
This book is concerned with two decades 1970-1990 of adjudications by the lower federal courts -- district and circuit courts of appeals and the US Supreme Court -- in 'religious freedoms' cases, or cases which relate to the First Amendment's 'free-exercise' and 'establishment' clauses. There are a number of reasons for dealing with these two clauses simultaneously. The first is pragmatic: most judicial decisions which deal with religious liberties discuss both clauses. Second, from a more theoretical perspective, the free exercise and establishment clauses share a common purpose, namely protecting the liberties of religious individuals and the non-religious. Finally, it is based upon an underlying scepticism about the importance of rules, and even the existence of rules, concepts which have emerged in the public law area and among legal realists. One of the major research objectives of this study is to test, in the context of religious liberty cases (or cases which involve the free exercise or establishment clauses), cases which involve major issues, the various predictions of the general theory of public law. In an effort to further understand politically activist judges, the analysis will also evaluate whether the activists are more likely than the non-activists to render decisions which favour interest groups, are responsive to judicial constituents, and are highly partisan. In addition to improving the political analysis of court cases, this book also examines other facets of the judicial environment which may also help to understand decisions in cases involving religious liberties. The dependent variable in all cases is whether the judicial decision is one which is pro-religion. The additional factors which will be included relate to arguably relevant factors relating to the judges including: their religious affiliations (or lack of religious belief), their ages, and their gender. Sample cases drawn from the district courts will help to introduce the data set employed in this book of religious freedoms cases. 139pp.
