Art in Turmoil

The Chinese Cultural Revolution, 1966–76

Edited by Richard King

The passage of time and passion, as well as the availability of new materials, bring a new

focus to work on the Cultural Revolution. Memoirs of participants put a human face on the

decade-long movement. The personal experiences and new documents in Art in Turmoil

combine with exquisite scholarship to deepen our understanding of the artistic life of

Maoist China.

Art History / Asia / China

UBC Press

The Cultural Revolution was a massive social

and political upheaval resulting from a battle

for supremacy within the ruling Chinese

Communist Party, set in motion by the

party’s chairman Mao Zedong. It was also a

time of both brutal iconoclasm and radical

experimentation in the arts, the effects of

which still resonate today.

Forty years after the Cultural Revolution, Art

in Turmoil revisits the visual and performing

arts of the period – the paintings, propaganda

posters, political cartoons, sculpture, folk arts,

private sketchbooks, opera, and ballet. Probing

deeply, it examines what these vibrant,

militant, often gaudy images meant to artists,

their patrons, and their audiences at the time,

and what they mean now, both in their original

forms and as revolutionary icons reworked for

a new market-oriented age.

Chapters by scholars of Chinese history

and art and by artists whose careers were

shaped by the Cultural Revolution decode

the rhetoric of China’s turbulent decade. The

many illustrations in the book, some familiar

and some never seen before, also offer new

insights into works that have transcended

their times.

Richard King is the director of the Centre

for Asia-Pacific Initiatives and an associate

professor of Chinese studies at the University

of Victoria.

On the Art of Being Canadian

Sherrill Grace

When Vincent Massey wrote On Being Canadian in

1948, he acknowledged the importance of the arts

to education and citizenship. He did not consider

what the arts can tell us about being Canadian

or about being ourselves. In On the Art of Being

Canadian Sherrill Grace traces how painters,

writers, and filmmakers have shaped Canadian

identity in three fields of representation that are

staples in Canadian culture – the North, iconic

national figures, and war. By telling stories in

their chosen medium and genre about life here or

about events and figures from the past, she shows

that artists help us to understand the Canadian

landscape and to create a shared history.

Sherrill Grace is a professor of English at the

University of British Columbia. The author of more

than twenty books, she was awarded the Canada

Council Killam Prize in Humanities in 2008.

The Politics of Procurement

Military Acquisition in Canada and the Sea King Helicopter

Aaron Plamondon

In 1993, Canada’s Liberal Party cancelled an order

to replace the navy’s Sea King helicopter. It claimed

that the Tory plan was too expensive, but the

cancellation itself actually cost taxpayers hundreds

of millions of dollars. Aaron Plamondon connects

this incident to the larger story of the evolution of

the defence procurement process in Canada. He

reveals that partisan politics, rather than a desire

to increase the military’s capabilities, have driven

the military procurement process. This saga of the

government playing havoc with weapons acquisition

offers an explanation for, and clues for resolving,

the under-equipped state of Canada’s military.

Aaron Plamondon teaches Canadian and Military

History at the University of Calgary and Mount Royal

University. He is also a National Fellow at the Centre

for Military and Strategic Studies at the University

of Calgary.

Work & Labour

Unions, Equity, and the Path to Renewal

Edited by Janice R. Foley and Patricia L. Baker

Trade unions in Canada are losing their traditional

support base, and membership numbers could sink

to US levels unless unions recapture their power.

Unions, Equity, and the Path to Renewal brings

together a distinguished group of union activists

and equity scholars who trace how traditional

union cultures, practices, and structures have

eroded solidarity and activism and created an

equity deficit in Canadian unions. Informed by a

feminist vision of unions as instruments of social

justice, the contributors argue that equity within

unions is not simply one possible path to union

renewal – it is the only way to reposition organized

labour as a central institution in workers’ lives.

Janice R. Foley is a professor in the Faculty

of Business Administration at the University

of Regina. Patricia L. Baker was an associate

professor of anthropology at Mount St. Vincent

What Is Water?

The History of a Modern Abstraction

Jamie Linton

We all know what water is, and we often take it

for granted. But the spectre of a worldwide water

crisis suggests that there might be something

fundamentally wrong with the way we think about

water. Jamie Linton dives into the history of water as

an abstract concept, stripped of its environmental,

social, and cultural contexts. Reduced to a scientific

abstraction – to mere H2O – this concept has

given modern society licence to dam, divert, and

manipulate water with apparent impunity. Part of

the solution to the water crisis involves reinvesting

water with social content, thus altering the way we

see water. What is Water? offers a fresh approach to

a fundamental problem.

Department of Geography at Queen’s University.

Sensing Changes

Technologies, Environments, and the Everyday, 1953–2003

Joy Parr

Our bodies are archives of sensory knowledge

that shape how we understand the world. If our

environment changes at an unsettling pace, how will

we make sense of a world that is no longer familiar?

One of Canada's premier historians tackles this

question by exploring situations in the recent past

where state-driven megaprojects and regulatory

and technological changes forced ordinary people

to cope with transformations that were so radical

that they no longer recognized their home and

workplaces or, by implication, who they were. In

concert with a ground-breaking, creative, and

analytical website, megaprojects.uwo.ca, this timely

study offers a prescient perspective on how humans

make sense of a rapidly changing world.

in Technology, Culture, and Risk in the Geography

Department at the University of Western Ontario.

Spirits of Our Whaling Ancestors

Revitalizing Makah and Nuu-chah-nulth Traditions

Charlotte Coté, Foreword by Micah McCarty

Following the removal of the gray whale from the

Endangered Species list in 1994, the Makah tribe

of northwest Washington State and the Nuu-chahnulth

Nation of British Columbia announced that

they would revive their whale hunts. The Makah

whale hunt of 1999 was met with enthusiastic

a valuable perspective on the issues surrounding

Native studies and contemporary Native rights

issues, addressing environmentalism, animal rights

activism, anti-treaty conservatism, and the public's

Nuclear Waste Management in Canada

Critical Issues, Critical Perspectives

Edited by Darrin Durant and Genevieve Fuji Johnson

As oil reserves decline and the environment

takes centre stage in public policy discussions,

the merits and dangers of nuclear power and

nuclear waste management are once again being

debated. Nuclear Waste Management in Canada

provides a critical counterpoint to the position

of government and industry by examining not

only the technical but also the social and ethical

aspects of the issue. What do frequently used

terms such as safety, risk, and acceptability

really mean? And how and why did the public

consultation process in Canada fail to address

ethical and social issues? This timely collection

defuses the uncertainty, ambiguity, and ignorance

that surrounds discussions of nuclear energy.

At Home and Abroad

The Canada-US Relationship and Canada's Place in the World

Patrick Lennox

Canada's relationship with the United States and

its place in the world currently occupy distinct

spheres in the minds of policymakers, intellectuals,

and citizens. At home, Canada is thought to enjoy

a “special" relationship with the United States;

abroad, it occupies a place as the world's problemsolver

and peacekeeper. Patrick Lennox analyzes six

key events in the history of relations between the

two countries to reveal the underlying connection

between the Canada-US relationship and Canada's

place in the world. The war in Afghanistan is but

the latest in a series of paradoxical interactions

between the two states abroad that has resulted

from the hierarchy in Canada-US relations at home.

Defence and Foreign Affairs Institute and the Centre

for Foreign Policy Studies at Dalhousie University.

The Empire's New Clothes

Barack Obama and the Real World of Power

Paul Street

Although mainstream journalists have noted

discrepancies between Obama’s original vision

and reality after his first year in office, Paul Street

uniquely measures Obama’s record against the

expectations of the progressive agenda many of

his supporters expected him to follow. The list

of Obama’s weakened policies is startling: the

business-friendly measures, the lack of support

for the growing mass of unemployed and poor, the

dilution of his health reform agenda, the passage

of a record-setting Pentagon budget, and the

escalation of U.S. military violence in Afghanistan,

Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia. Street’s account

reveals how deeply beholden Obama is to existing

dominant domestic and global hierarchies and

Hearts of Darkness

Torturing Children in the War on Terror

Henry A. Giroux, Foreward by Chris Hedges

The United States embarked on a war on terror

that defended torture as a matter of official policy.

As torture became normalized in the Bush era,

it not only corrupted American ideals but also

passed over into sanctioning the unimaginable:

the torture of children. This book documents cases

of child torture by American military personnel,

several of which are little known to Americans.

Giroux challenges the Obama administration to

address these shameful practices. But he also

raises questions about the collusion of the media,

educators, and the criminal justice system that

allowed these conditions to emerge.

Henry A. Giroux currently holds the Global TV

Network Chair Professorship at McMaster University

in the English and Cultural Studies Department.

He has published numerous books and articles. His

Than Shwe

Unmasking Burma's Tyrant

Benedict Rogers, Foreword by Václav Havel

Than Shwe is one of the world’s most brutal

dictators, presiding over a military regime that

persists in repressing and brutalizing its own

people. Until now, his story has not been told.

This fascinating book is the first-ever account of

Than Shwe’s journey from postal clerk to dictator,

analyzing his rise through the ranks of the army,

his training in psychological warfare, his elimination

of rivals, and his ruthless suppression of dissent.

Drawing on the insights of Burma Army defectors

and international diplomats, Benedict Rogers

provides a compelling account of Than Shwe and

life in Burma under his rule.

Benedict Rogers is a writer and human rights

advocate specializing in Burma. He is the author

of A Land Without Evil: Stopping the Genocide of

Burma’s Karen People.

The Sixty Years' War for the Great Lakes, 1754–1814

Edited by David Curtis Skaggs and Larry L. Nelson

Between 1754 and 1814, several mititary struggles

ensued over many generations for control of

the Great Lakes region. The twenty essays in this

collection concern not only military and naval

operations, but also the political, economic, social,

and cultural interactions of individuals and groups

during the struggle to control the great freshwater

lakes and rivers between the Canadian Shield and

the Ohio Valley. These essays represent fresh and

insightful approaches to the understudied history

of the region and the multifaceted wars that did so

much to shape it.

Trees in the Tide

The Ocean's Vanishing Rainforest

Kennedy Warne

Trees in the Tide tells the stories of the

communities and individuals around the world

affected by the loss of mangrove forests. Coastal

dwellers in developing countries rely on the

mangroves’ sheltered waters to supply fish,

mollusks, and crabs and use mangrove timber for

construction and fuel. Mangroves also provide

a buffer against storm surges. In spite of their

ecological, economic, and safety value, mangrove

forests are being logged for pulp, bulldozed for

agricultural land and urban development, and,

increasingly, turned into ponds for shrimp farming

and other aquaculture. At the current rate, almost

all the world's mangroves will be gone within a

hundred years.

Requiem for a Species

Why We Resist the Truth About Climate Change

Clive Hamilton

Requiem for a Species does not set out once more

to raise the alarm to encourage us to take radical

measures to head off climate chaos. This book is

about why we have ignored those warnings, and

why it may now be too late. It is a book about the

frailties of the human species as expressed in both

the institutions we have built and the psychological

dispositions that have led us on the path of

self-destruction. It is about our strange obsessions,

our hubris, and our penchant for avoiding the facts.

It is the story of a battle within us between the

forces that should have caused us to protect the

Earth and those that, in the end, have won out.

Fast Forward

Ethics and Politics in the Age of Global Warming

William Antholis and Strobe Talbott

This pithy yet compelling book makes abundantly

clear why global warming is indeed a major threat,

unlike any other we’ve faced in the past, and why

urgent action is needed right now. The authors

outline just what actions are needed and why

“politics as usual" in global negotiations simply

will not get the job done. The global climate is too

important to leave solely in the hands of politicians.

A new mindset is needed. On the one hand, we need

to focus on what can be accomplished immediately

on the grand stage of diplomacy. On the other hand,

we must stay true to our long-term personal and

ethical responsibilities to future generations.

Cents and Sustainability

Securing Our Common Future by Decoupling Economic Growth

from Environmental Pressures

Michael H. Smith, Karlson "Charlie" Hargroves, and Cheryl Desha

Gro Brundtland's 1987 classic Our Common

Future called for citizens to achieve "a new era

of economic growth – growth that is forceful

and ... socially and environmentally sustainable."

Cents and Sustainability is both an answer to

that call and a re-examination of that important

work in a modern context. It investigates a

range of new evidence and research in order

to develop a deeper understanding of how, and

under what conditions, “forceful" sustainable

growth is possible. Focusing on key issues such

as greenhouse gas emissions, biodiversity, and

air pollution, this book reveals the compelling

evidence that exists for cost-effective reductions in

environmental pressures.

The Skeptical Economist

Revealing the Ethics Inside Economics

Jonathan Aldred

The Skeptical Economist rejects the story told by

other popular economics books. Responding to

Western malaise about quality of life, and a growing

curiosity about economics and its relevance to

these concerns, Jonathan Aldred argues that

economics is not an agreed body of knowledge or

an objective science. In reality economics is built on

ethical foundations – distinctive and controversial

views about how we ought to live, what we value,

and why. This revealing and entertaining book

exposes these hidden assumptions and opens up

the black box of modern economics to reveal that

conventional wisdom is not what it appears to be.

Jonathan Aldred is the Newton Trust Lecturer

in Land Economy at Cambridge University and

the director of Studies in Economics at Emmanuel

College, Cambridge.

Leading Change in the Web 2.1 World

Jackson Nickerson

Leading Change in a Web 2.1 World provides new

insights into why people and organizations are

so difficult to engage in change. However, recent

advances in Web 2.0 technology enable new

leadership processes that can create great value for

organizations. Jackson Nickerson proposes utilizing

a combination of the processes and techniques

of Web 2.0 technology for “ChangeCasting.”

Web-based video communication, when used

in accordance with ChangeCasting, is a key way

to build trust and create understanding in an

organization, thereby unlocking and accelerating

organizational change. The author relates success

stories and shows how the process was used so

successfully in 2008 by President Obama during his

election campaign.

Lessons from Ground Zero

Media Response to Terror Disaster

Edited by Ralph Izard and Jay Perkins

Lessons from Ground Zero explores journalists'

efforts to cover a crisis and then expands this

focus into an analysis of journalism itself. This

book compares journalists’ responses to 9/11

through research and interviews with many of the

journalists who covered the events of September 11,

2001. Sometimes the accounts do not agree, but all

are thoughtful and each adds to the understanding

of the media's response. Because the coverage

happened when public approval of American

journalism was high, this book asks, then answers,

what the media did that was different from its

normal practices.

Contemplative Aging

A Way of Being in Later Life

Edmund Sherman

In modern societies people are expected to

remain “activity-oriented" in their later years.

But Dr. Edmund Shermana argues that a more

contemplative, spiritual, and peaceful way of living

is ideally-suited to older people and offers many

to add a deeper dimension to the activity-oriented

image of older age promoted in the media. Based

around the world, Sherman presents a range of

contemplative practice methods designed for those

already sixty years or older and the millions of baby

boomers about to enter their later years of life.

A-Z of Genetic Factors in Autism

A Handbook for Parents and Carers

Kenneth J. Aiken

"Autism" is now understood to be an umbrella

term for a variety of predominantly genetic

conditions. This can be confusing for parents of

children who have been diagnosed as having an

"autism spectrum disorder." This book provides

parents with a complete overview of the main

genetic disorders associated with autism,

including those linked to growth differences,

cardiovascular issues, neurodevelopmental

problems, and epilepsy. Kenneth Aitken

demystifies autism by alphabetically listing

these conditions along with information about

how common they are, their causes, signs, and

symptoms, and for many, appropriate methods of

treatment and management.

Stand Up for Autism

A Boy, a Dog, and a Prescription for Laughter

Georgina J. Derbyshire

When we tell someone thata child is autistic,

the most common response is a sad face and an

apologetic look. Parenting a child on the autistic

spectrum can be tough, but few books take the

time to celebrate the love and laughter an autistic

child can elicit in their parents and those around

them. In this warm, honest, and laugh-out-loud tale

of bringing up Bobby, Georgina Derbyshire shares

and rejoices in his "slightly different" childhood.

As she outlines momentous events in Bobby's life,

she repeatedly challenges the perception of autism

as an affliction and reveals how social codes and

psychological games make the neurotypical world a

very confusing place.

Georgina Derbyshire lives with her ten-yearold

son, Bobby, on the outskirts of a small town in

Going Abroad

Traveling Like an Anthropologist

Rob Gordon, with Charles Norris Brown

This literary and evocative book is based on the

assumption that travel broadens the mind but only

when one is predisposed to let it. Anthopologists

have made a profession of going abroad. What

lessons can one glean from the practice of

anthropological fieldwork to make any traveler’s

travel abroad a deeper learning experience? The

standards in anthropology teach humility and a

willingness to learn from those in the host country.

This short book, which can be read predeparture or

while abroad, will equip the traveller with the

practical and philosophical tools to have an

enriched and mind-broadening experience.

Rob Gordon has done field research in Namibia,

Lesotho, South Africa, and Papua New Guinea. He

Boundaries of Jewish Identity

Edited by Susan A. Glenn and Naomi B. Sokoloff

The essays in this collection focus especially on

the issues of who creates the definitions, and

how, and in what social and political contexts

of "Jewish." The ten leading authorities writing

here also look at the forces, from new genetic

and reproductive technologies to increasingly

multicultural societies, that push against

established boundaries. The authors examine

how Jews have imagined themselves and how

definitions of Jewishness have been established,

enforced, challenged, and transformed. These

essays reveal that possible answers reflect the

different social, intellectual, and political locations

of those who are asking the questions.

Roy & Me

A Memoir and Then Some

Maurice Yacowar

Best known for his service with the Special Air

Service during the Second World War, Roy Farran

served as a politician in the Legislative Assembly

of Alberta for Premier Peter Lougheed. During

his time as a soldier, Farran allegedly kidnapped

and murdered a sixteen-year-old member of the

Lehi group (Fighters for the Freedom of Israel).

Maurice Yacowar challenges genre and form in Roy

& Me, a cross between memoir and fiction, truth

and distortion. It is the exploration of Yacowar’s

relationship with Roy Farran in a memoir that edges

toward fiction by venturing into Farran’s thoughts.

Maurice Yacowar is a professor emeritus in the

Department of English at the University of Calgary.

He also taught at Brock University, where he helped

establish Canada’s first film studies program.

Bring Down the Little Birds

Carmen Giménez Smith

How does a contemporary woman with an

established career as a creative writing

professor and as editor-in-chief of a literary

journal experience motherhood? The dichotomy

between life as a mother and life as an artist and

professional is a major theme in modern literature

because often the two seem irreconcilable. In Bring

Down the Little Birds, Carmen Giménez Smith

offers a lyrical personal memoir that sheds light on

her experiences during her pregnancies and with

raising two children.

Carmen Giménez Smith is an assistant professor

in the English department at New Mexico State

Puerto del Sol, and the publisher at the nonprofit

The dust of just beginning

Don Kerr

Don Kerr knows prairie culture better than most

– he knows it from the inside out. He has made us

aware of ourselves through his numerous volumes

of poetry, his fiction, his many plays, his histories,

and his interest in heritage. In this mature,

accomplished collection, we can once again admire

his unique prairie voice – minimalist, self-effacing,

direct yet subtle and nuanced, immersed in his love

of the vernacular language of this place. His line is

muscular, his timing impeccable.

Don Kerr is the author of numerous poetry

collections, plays, and short stories. He was the

first chair of the Saskatoon Heritage Society and

also the Saskatchewan governor for the Heritage

Canada Foundation.

Broken Ground

A Novel

John Keeble, Foreword by Kathleen Dean Moore

Broken Ground employs a construction project in

the Oregon desert as the basis for a story with

far-reaching political and moral implications.

Hank Lafleur has been sent to supervise the

project, which is a prison-for-profit financed by

a multinational corporation under government

contract, meant to house felons, illegal

immigrants, and, as Lafleur comes to learn,

political prisoners from Latin America. Broken

Ground is remarkable for its prophetic vision of

the hollow securities promised by incarceration

and of the effects of "privatization" as an armature

of American imperialism in both the domestic and

international realms.

John Keeble is the author of four novels including

Yellowtail, a collection of short stories, Nocturnal

America, and a work of nonfiction, Out of the

Channel: The Exxon Valdez Oil Spill in Prince

William Sound.

Earthscan Publishers

Can humanity prosper without economic

growth? If so, what form should our prosperity

take – consumption and affluence, or wellbeing

and happiness? In this explosive book, Tim

Jackson – a top sustainability adviser to the

UK government – offers a compelling analysis

of the most profound dilemma confronting

the twenty-first century: economic growth is

unsustainable, but “de-growth" is unstable.

Instead, Jackson argues, we must reconfigure

our economic machine, and deliver prosperity

for all, without growth.

Here, for those who want to be part of the most

important conversation of our times, is a vision

of our capability to flourish as human beings

within the ecological limits of a finite planet.

Fulfilling this vision is simply the most urgent

task of our generation.

Praise for Prosperity Without Growth:

Tim Jackson's book simply resets the agenda for

Western society.

From the 1950s to the late 1990s, agents of

the state spied on, interrogated, and harassed

gays and lesbians in Canada, employing social

ideologies and other practices to construct

their targets as threats to society. Based on

official security documents and interviews with

gays, lesbians, civil servants, and high-ranking

officials, this path-breaking book discloses acts

of state repression and forms of resistance

that raise questions about just whose national

security was being protected. Passionate and

personalized, this account of how the state used

the ideology of national security to wage war on

its own people offers ways of understanding, and

resisting, contemporary conflicts such as the

“war on terror.”

Praise for The Canadian War on Queers:

The Canadian War on Queers is destined to

be a landmark book in the study of Canadian

state security apparatuses and an important

Native languages and ways of living, including the

arts of sea kayaking and dog sledding, fascinated

Knud Rasmussen, himself of Inuit and Danish descent.

Rasmussen devoted much of his life to ethnological

and cultural studies throughout Arctic North America.

Establishing a base station in Thule, Greenland, in

1910, he visited as many Inuit peoples as he could,

taking meticulous notes and making sketches,

collecting artifacts and compiling hundreds of Native

legends and songs. The tales are grounded in the

Inuit belief system, itself defined by superstition and

transformation. Thanks to his own mixed heritage,

Rasmussen understood Inuit stories at a deeper level

than did most observers, and documented many

priceless legends that the West might have otherwise

not have noticed.

From his Thule station, Rasmussen led many ambitious

Arctic expeditions. His famous “Great Sledge Journey”

resulted in this priceless and beloved collection and

descriptions of Inuit folktales, songs, and poetry, now

finally back in print in English.

It could be said the most environmental friendly event

is no event at all. But that's no fun. Public parties and

events always have been and always will be a part of

the human story. Yet those who stage events have a

social and environmental responsibility to reduce their

impacts. If all event professionals kept sustainability at

the core of their planning and decision-making, then

the cumulative outcome across the globe would be

impressive. But where do you start?

Written by a leader in the field, this new practical

guide leads readers through all of the key aspects of

how to understand and manage the environmental

impacts of events of any type and scale anywhere. This

comprehensive guide covers diverse topics such as

energy, zero emissions options, carbon management,

transport and water, waste management and

reduction, procurement and supply chains, as well as

communications and marketing.

Filled with tried-and-tested methods used across

the event industry, and case studies from across the

UK, Europe, the US, Canada, and Australia, this is the

indispensable one-stop guide for event and facility

organizers, managers and professionals who want

a powerful, easy-to-use collection of tools to deliver

The Thomson Collection at the Art Gallery of Ontario

Ken Thomson was no mere trophy gatherer. A man of passionate commitment and of wide-ranging

cultural curiosity, the late Lord Thomson of Fleet (1923-2006) began a half-century of collecting in

1953 and continued to do so until the very end of his life.

The Thomson Collection has drawn the respect of museum curators worldwide. In terms of

quantity and quality, the collection’s body of Canadian art has no equal; and a number of works,

principal among them The Massacre of the Innocents, the masterpiece of Rubens’s early maturity,

are of truly international significance. As the most important private art collection in Canada, it

will hugely extend the holdings of the Art Gallery of Ontario. Amongst its European works is the

fabulous twelfth-century Malmesbury reliquary casket, an extraordinary selection of medieval

ivories, and a fine group of portrait miniatures. A large and varied group of ship models is an

intriguing facet of the Collection.

UBC Press is proud to congratulate author

Brian Bow on winning this year’s Donner

Book Prize for excellence in Canadian public

policy writing.

UBC Press is proud to congratulate author

John Sutton Lutz on winning this year’s

Harold Adams Innis Prize for best Englishlanguage

work in the Social Sciences.

This book is of great importance not only for a

better understanding of the exceptional history

of Canada–United States relationships but also

to see the need to adapt Canadian negotiations

strategies to the new and more complex context.

– Donner Jury

Some Canadian scholars are already calling

this work “one of the most important books on

aboriginal history written in Canada.”

This very well could be the case.

– B.F.R. Edwards, University of Saskatchewan
