Edited By Gustafson, Paula
Canada's ceramists, tapestry weavers and other craft artists are recognised amongst the world's finest artisans. The inaugural edition of a three-volume series, Craft Perception and Practice celebrates the excellence of Canadian crafts by bringing together 24 essays and critical commentaries by 16 independent critics and curators, professional artists, art historians and studio instructors. Highly readable texts by internationally published authors Glenn Allison, Amy Gogarty, Paula Gustafson, Paul Mathieu, Gil McElroy and Anne McPherson -- as well as by noted Canadian painter Mary Pratt -- discuss the conceptual, social, and cultural significance of craft media. The essays engage linguistic and feminist theories, and consider aspects of tactile, sensual and tacit knowledge in the context of works by a distinguished group of Canadian craft artists that includes Prix Saidye Bronfman Award winners Steven Heinemann and Leopold L Foulem. 218pp.

Edited By Heuvel, Katrina Vanden
On Tuesday morning, a piece was torn out of our world. A patch of blue sky that should not have been there opened up in the New York skyline. Our city was changed forever. Our country was changed forever. Our world was changed forever. So wrote Jonathan Schell in the first issue of The Nation magazine following September 11, 2001. In A Just Response, some of the most respected figures on the progressive left analyze the causes and consequences of this new American wound in a series of thoughtful, informed, and provocative essays. Selected from The Nation and other sources, these articles counter the bombast and jingoism of so much of the media coverage since September 11while providing informed analysis, provocative commentary, and reasoned debates. The writers in these pages speak out against "Fascism with an Islamic face," jingoism, and the undermining of civil rights, address the confusion between dissent and treason, and articulate a vision of a just response to terrorism. Others reflect on an interview with Osama bin Laden, the concept of "Blowback"modern technological society turned unwittingly against itselfand the American right wing's exploitation of a national emergency to further its political agenda. Also included are dispatches from other countries around the world, brief background histories of bin Laden's origins, the roots of fundamentalism, asymmetrical warfare, and a heated exchange between Noam Chomsky and Christopher Hitchens. 349pp. N.B.
