Phillips, Anne
Democracy is the central political issue of our age, yet debates over its nature and goals rarely engage with feminist concerns. Now that women have the right to vote, they are thought to present no special problems of their own. But despite the seemingly gender neutral categories of individual or citizen, democratic theory and practice continues to privilege the male. This book reconsiders dominant strands in democratic thinking focusing on liberal democracy, participatory democracy, and twentieth century versions of civic republicanism and approaches these from a feminist perspective. Anne Phillips explores the under representation of women in politics, the crucial relationship between public and private spheres, and the lessons of the contemporary women's movement as an experience in participatory democracy. 183pp. N.B.

Edited By Ponder,B.A., & Waring M.J
It has been recognized for almost 200 years that certain families seem to inherit cancer. It is only in the past decade, however, that molecular genetics and epidemiology have combined to define the role of inheritance in cancer more clearly, and to identify some of the genes involved. The causative genes can be tracked through cancer-prone families via genetic linkage and positional cloning. Several of the genes discovered have subsequently been proved to play critical roles in normal growth and development. There are also implications for the families themselves in terms of genetic testing with its attendant dilemmas, if it is not clear that useful action will result. The chapters in this work illustrate what has already been achieved and take a critical look at the future directions of this research and its potential clinical applications. 221pp.

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.
