George-Etienne Cartier has traditionally been interpreted as primarily a federal politician, as Macdonald's ally in building a united Canada, and as a representative French Canadian. Brian Young downplays ethnic and national political factors and focuses on Cartier's function as spokesman for a specific social group, the Montreal bourgeoisie. The dominant politician in Quebec in the mid-1980s, Cartier directed the transformation of that society's fundamental landholding, legal, business, and educational institutions. Confederation was the political ingredient in the integration of Quebec into Canadian industrial society.

During the second war, the town of Pettorano sul Gizio was very close to the action because of its proximity to the Gustav Line, a defensive position estabilished by the Germans to slow down the advancing Allied forces. Pettorano’s geographic coordinates and its major transportation corridors, motivated the Germans army to set up a post in this locale. As the results of location and the German army presence, the town is rich in war history, including the evacuation of 4,000 souls when a major offensive was imminent. Some of the evacuees scattered into neighbouring outskirts, but most of them fl ed into the mountains near the village, seeking refuge. I have also added another story, which I share with at least 3,000 citizen of Pettorano: the immigrant experience.The war and its devastation on the economy made imperative the necessity to leave the homeland in search of a better life. Many of us came to Canada. It is from here that I recall the journey and pen these words and comment on the events so that our children’s and grandchildren’s generation might appreciate the sacrifi ces endured by their ancestors.

How did British colonists in Victorian Montreal come to think of themselves as "native Canadian"? This richly illustrated work reveals that colonists adopted, then appropriated, Aboriginal and French Canadian activities such as hunting, lacrosse, snowshoeing, and tobogganing. In the process, they constructed visual icons that were recognized at home and abroad as distinctly "Canadian." This new Canadian nationality mimicked indigenous characteristics but ultimately rejected indigenous players, and championed the interests of white, middle-class, Protestant males who used their newly acquired identity to dominate the political realm. English Canadian identity was not formed solely by emulating what was British; this book shows that it gained ground by usurping what was indigenous in a foreign land.

This book reveals key untold stories and scenes from the life of a Palestinian who comes from the Palestinian village of Hamama. The book unfolds its stories through the different stages and diverse contexts the author has been through. It is neither a historical record nor an autobiography as it may appear at first sight, rather an intricate account of the tragedies and calamities endured by tens of thousands of Palestinians. The book is neither written as a political discourse, analysis, or a criticism, nor is it a description of battles and behaviors. It is a whoop of sadness and grief of a people whose homeland was usurped and is still living in them. In preparing this book, it was meant to be free of any derogation or belittlement of anybody. I did not communicate everything and was content with such allusions that maintain ones dignity. Indeed, this bookby uncovering the misfortunes and atrocities Palestinian children, men, and women went through is profoundly a message to the future generations of Arabs who did not see these scenes into reality. The book is a flash of knowledge, a document for researchers, and a source of enlightenment for readers and students alike. It contains invaluable scenes from a substantial span of time since Field Marshal Edmund Allenby entered Jerusalem after his triumph over the Ottoman armies in World War I and said, Today, the crusades have ended.

Welcome to Canada-home of the big bucks. Whitetail monarchs freely roam through the hardwood forests and crop fields in the checkered agricultural belt of this vast land. Heredity endows our deer with large bodies and matching massive antlers, but environment dictates behavior. Canadian whitetails are different and behave differently from their southern brethren. No matter where you have hunted before, deer hunting in Canada is a brand new game. Your old, tried-and-true ways will not work here. New tactics and strategies are required. Veteran hunter, Dragan Vujic, shares close to forty years of hunting experience in this comprehensive book on Canadian Whitetail Hunting. The book itself is divided into three parts-The Facts About Canadian Whitetails (general information, game laws, social structure, habitat, communication, breeding behavior, anatomy, kill zones), Critical Factors That Determine Canadian Whitetail Behavior (weather, phases of the moon, hunting pressure, time of year, scents, doe to buck ratios, time of day, food sources), Effective Canadian Whitetail Hunting Strategies (archers, snipers, stalkers, callers, drivers, blockers). Within these sections, Dragan Vujic covers all of the key components for hunting whitetails in Canada. Additional chapters include tactics for all situations, the recently new phenomenon of hunting deer in the suburbs and tracking wounded whitetails. [email protected]

A transcription of Lucy Peel’s wonderfully readable journal was recently discovered in her descendent’s house in Norwich, England. Sent in regular installments to her transatlantic relatives, the journal presents an intimate narrative of Lucy’s Canadian sojourn with her husband, Edmund Peel, an officer on leave from the British navy. Her daily entries begin with their departure as a young, newlywed couple from the shores of England in 1833 and end with their decision to return to the comforts of home after three and a half years of hard work as pioneer settlers. Lucy Peel’s evocative diary focuses on the semi-public world of family and community in Lower Canada’s Eastern Townships, and fulfils the same role as Susanna Moodie’s writings had for the Upper Canadian frontier. Though their perspective was from a small, privileged sector of society, these genteel women writers were sharp observers of their social and natural surroundings, and they provide valuable insights into the ideology and behaviour of the social class that dominated the Canadian colonies during the pre-Rebellion era. Women’s voices are rarely heard in the official records that comprise much of the historical archives. Lucy Peel’s intensely romantic journal reveals how crucially important domesticity was to the local British officials. Lucy Peel’s diary, like those of such counterparts as Catherine Parr Traill, also suggests that genteel women were better prepared for their role in the New World than Canadian historians have generally assumed.

In 1871 R.M. Rylatt, a former sergeant of His Majesty's RoyalEngineers, embarked on a new career as an agent of the Canadian PacificRailroad Survey, searching for a route that would join British Columbiato the rest of Canada. He kept notes of his two years of expeditionarywork, which he later revised and expanded, adding numerous coloursketches and line drawings. These memoirs were compiled in a handsomeleatherbound journal, which remained in the family for more than ahundred years before being discovered and subsequently published by theUniversity of Utah Press in 1991. Rylatt's journal provides a valuable first-hand account of therace to mount a transcontinental railway across largely unmappedterritory. It is also a great adventure story, full of the trials andtribulations that were so much a part of the everyday existence. In onedramatic encounter, Rylatt graphically describes using an axe to cutoff three fingers of a troublemaker in camp. Especially gripping, andthe most vivid pure adventure, is the last fifth of the diarydescribing the trip homeward in May of 1873 when, with three horses anda companion, he travels from Jasper across the Continental Divide anddown the Thompson River to Kamloops. Readers will be captivated by Rylatt's jaunty but dangerousadventures told with sly humour and a canny eye for detail. Thecompelling text and exceptional colour illustrations give life to theefforts of one individual engaged in a grand enterprise to span anation. As William Kittredge notes in his foreword to the book:'Like so many of those who ventured out onto the proving ground ofexploration and adventure and settlement in the nineteenth century,Rylatt seems to have been quite aware he was engaged in a greatconquest. He also understood he was seeing things that would never beseen again.'

The mission statements and recruitment campaigns for modern Canadian universities promote diverse and enlightened communities. Racism in the Canadian University questions this idea by examining the ways in which the institutional culture of the academy privileges Whiteness and Anglo-Eurocentric ways of knowing. Often denied and dismissed in practice as well as policy, the various forms of racism still persist in the academy. This collection, informed by critical theory, personal experience, and empirical research, scrutinizes both historical and contemporary manifestations of racism in Canadian academic institutions, finding in these communities a deep rift between how racism is imagined and how it is lived. With equal emphasis on scholarship and personal perspectives, Racism in the Canadian University is an important look at how racial minority faculty and students continue to engage in a daily struggle for safe, inclusive spaces in classrooms and among peers, colleagues, and administrators.
