Harper, J. Russell
Since its first appearance in 1967, Russell Harper's classic study of Canadian painting has been recognized as the outstanding authority on the subject. This edition provides a comprehensive survey, generously illustrated, of three centuries of Canadian painting from its beginnings in the seventeenth century. Through a lively combination of entertaining anecdotes, descriptions of the cultural background, biographical accounts, and critical judgement, the reader comes to know intimately the artists, their paintings, and their environments. They allow the reader to see representative works from all periods, and provide a visual record of the cultural and social history of Canada. 463pp. N.B. Corners of covers creased.

Edited By Hall, Donald E.
Muscular Christianity was an important religious, literary and social movement of the mid-nineteenth century. This volume draws on recent developments in culture and gender theory to reveal ideological links between muscular Christianity and the work of novelists and essayists, including Kingsley, Emerson, Dickens, Hughes, MacDonald and Pater, and to explore the use of images of hyper-masculinized male bodies to represent social as well as physical ideals. Muscular Christianity argues that the ideologies of the movement were extreme versions of common cultural conceptions, and that anxieties evident in Muscular Christian texts, often manifested through images of the body as a site of socio-political conflict, were pervasive throughout society. Throughout, muscular Christianity is shown to be at the heart of issues of gender, class and national identity in the Victorian age. 244pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep.

The origins of free movement of persons in the European Union are to be found in a conference held at King's College London, organized by the Immigration Law Practitioners' Association and the Centre of European Law at King's College, with the sponsorship of the European Commission. Published to mark the 30th anniversary of that conference, this book is divided into two sections, the first of which deals with the implementation of rights of nationals in the European Union to move, reside and pursue economic activities in other member-states. The second part looks at the development of European law regulating the movement, residence and economic activities of third-country nationals within the territory of the Union. The two sections are analyzed both by reference to the black-letter law and the social consequences attendant upon migration within the European Union.175pp.
