Matson, Wallace
These incisive, witty, and completely accessible essays on a wide range of topics by historian of philosophy Wallace Matson admirably demonstrate that philosophy can still be based on careful reasoning and presented with clarity of expression. Against fashionable contemporary views, Matson asserts that philosophy is "the most important subject in the college curriculum," because it is the investigation into what rationality is. Getting the answer wrong to the question "What does it mean to be reasonable?" is the most catastrophic of errors. The motivation for most of the essays in this collection is his perception that this error is being widely committed and that received opinion on many topics is dead wrong. Accordingly, he takes issue with the following beliefs: bodily resurrection is possible; zombies are logically possible (as David Chalmers claims); John Rawls wrote a book on justice; religion is an aid to morality; Zeno and Parmenides tried to prove that nothing really moves; the actual world is only one out of an infinity of possible worlds; and much more. Also included are two essays on Matson's distinctions between high and low beliefs, four essays on Spinoza, and, in conclusion, 'The Study of Philosophy as a Prophylactic against Bullshit'.

Cross, Rosemary James
Percy Leonard James was one of Victoria, British Columbia's preeminent architects through the early decades of the twentieth century. This well-researched biography, written by his daughter, chronicles James' personal and professional life from his early days in England to his becoming one of Victoria's most influential designers. As James' work is often overshadowed by his contemporary architects, Samuel Maclure and Francis Mawson Rattenbury, this book is long overdue and, in some instances, sets the record straight.220pp.

Hoeppner, Ken
The development of agriculture in Alberta owes much to Arnold W Platt, who set out to plant a seed of positive change. Whether as a plant breeder, an organiser for the Farmers' Union of Alberta, or a commissioner for the McPherson Royal Commission on Transportation, Platt applied his inventive and creative thinking to problems of rural development in twentieth century Alberta. In "The Ordinary Genius", Ken Hoeppner pays homage to the accomplishments of this modest man, whose life's work continues to resonate in farmlands across the Prairies. This detailed and thoroughly researched story will appeal to western history enthusiasts, agriculture specialists and farmers.308pp.

Weiss, Friedl; Wooldridge, Frank
Arguably, the most important element in any system of economic integration is the freedom of movement of persons. In this, as in other initiatives, the European Community has taken the lead, and emerging economic unions and common markets elsewhere in the world take full cognizance of the EC's successes and failures as this fundamental right has developed under European law. This volume provides a comprehensive overview of this body of law, encompassing doctrinal basis, institutional framework, legal compliance, judicial development, and derogation on such grounds as security and health. The authors comment extensively on matters including visas, free movement of workers, freedom of establishment for companies, posted workers, harmonization of professional qualifications, European citizenship, freedom to provide and receive services, agreements between the European Community and other states concerning free movement, the rights of third country nationals (especially their position under the EURODAC regulation), and the rights of families and individuals to housing and education. In addition to providing analysis of the relevant provisions of the European Community Treaty as amended by subsequent treaties including the Treaties of Amsterdam and Nice, the book takes considerable account of all relevant secondary legislation and sometimes soft law, for example draft treaties, resolutions, and draft legislation. The authors also consider what obstacles remain to this freedom, and what future developments might take place in this area of Community law.
