Fiction in TranslationK.L. ReichJoaquim Amat-PiniellaRobert Finley and Marta Marín-Dòmine, translatorsAvailable in English for the first time, Joaquim Amat-Piniella’s searingCatalan novel, K.L. Reich, is a central work of testimonial literature of theNazi concentration camps. Begun immediately after Amat-Piniella’sliberation in 1945, the book is based on his own four-year internment atMauthausen.“When the war is over, remember all this. Remember me,” implores one ofthe book’s characters on his deathbed, and it is this call to bear witnessthat Amat-Piniella takes up in his account of the Spanish Republicanfighters who were exiled in France at the end of the Spanish Civil War in1939 and soon swept up into the German concentration camp system. Asan already organized anti-fascist army, they played an important role as anucleus of resistance within the camps, and their story is little known toEnglish-language readers.Because of the length of his internment, his decision to write his book asfiction, and his staggering powers of observation and recollection, Amat-Piniella’s portrayal of life in the camps is unmatched in scope and detail.It is also a compelling study of three powerful ideological movementsat work at the time: anarchism, communism, and fascism, all within thedesperate and brutal world of the camps.“My book does not seek to deepen wounds or differences, but to unitepeople before cruelty,” said Amat-Piniella. This is an essential text as weponder the twentieth century and its meaning to us today.PrintJune 2014235 pages6 x 9Memory and TestimonyStudies series978-1-77112-017-3paper $24.99Digital978-1-77112-019-7epub $17.99Joaquim Amat-Piniella (1913–1974) was born inManresa, Catalonia.

FictionThe Forest of Bourg-MarieS. Frances HarrisonAfterword by Cynthia SugarsIn The Forest of Bourg-Marie, originally published in 1898, Toronto authorand musician S. Frances Harrison draws together a highly mythologizedimage of Quebec society and the forms of Gothic literature that werealready familiar to her English-speaking audience. It tells the story of afourteen-year-old French Canadian who is lured to the United States bythe promise of financial reward, only to be rejected by his grandfatherupon his return. In doing so, the novel offers a powerful critique of thepersonal and cultural consequences of emigration out of Canada.In her afterword, Cynthia Sugars considers how The Forest of Bourg-Mariereimagines the Gothic tradition from a settler Canadian perspective,turning to a French-Canadian setting with distinctly New-World overtones.Harrison’s twist on the traditional Gothic plotline offers an inversionof such Gothic motifs as the decadent aristocrat and ancestral curseby playing on questions of illegitimacy and cultural preservation.PrintSeptember 2014150 pages5 x 7Early CanadianLiterature series978-1-77112-029-6paper $24.99Digital978-1-77112-031-9epub $17.99S.

In Blast, Corrupt,Dismantle, Erase, contributors address this amorphous but pervasivegenre, using diverse critical methodologies to examine how NorthAmerica is conveyed or portrayed in a perceived age of crisis, accelerateduncertainty, and political volatility.Drawing from contemporary novels such as Cormac McCarthy’s TheRoad, Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, and the work of Margaret Atwoodand William Gibson (to name a few), this book examines dystopianliterature produced by North American authors between the signingof NAFTA (1994) and the tenth anniversary of 9/11 (2011). As the textsillustrate, awareness of and deep concern about perceived vulnerabilities—endsof water, oil, food, capitalism, empires, stable climates, ways oflife, non-human species, and entire human civilizations—have becomecentral to public discourse over the same period.By asking questions such as “What are the distinctive qualities of post-NAFTA North American dystopian literature?” and “What does thisliterature reflect about the tensions and contradictions of the inchoatecontinental community of North America?” Blast, Corrupt, Dismantle,Erase serves to resituate dystopian writing within a particular geo-socialsetting and introduce a productive means to understand both NorthAmerican dystopian writing and its relevant engagements with arestricted, mapped reality.PrintMay 2014450 pages2 b/w illus.6 x 9978-1-55458-989-0paper $48.99Digital978-1-55458-990-6epub $33.99Gisèle M.

RiveringPoetryThe Poetry of Daphne MarlattSelected with an introduction by Susan KnutsonOpening doors, dreaming awake, tracing networks of music andmeaning, Marlatt’s poetry stands out as an essential engagement withwhat matters to anyone writing with a social-environmental conscience.Rivering includes poems inspired by the village of Steveston where,before the war, a Japanese-Canadian community lived within therhythms of salmon on the Fraser River delta. Also gathered into Rivering:lesbian love poetry from Touch to my Tongue; a transformance of NicoleBrossard’s Mauve; passages from The Given, winner of the 2009 DorothyLivesay Poetry Prize; a traditional “Kuri” song from the Noh drama, TheGull; and an unpublished excerpt from the chamber opera “ShadowCatch.”Difficult, beautiful, heart-breaking realities of the twenty-first centuryare urgently immediate in selections from Liquidities: Vancouver PoemsThen and Now. All of the poems speak to Marlatt’s poetics of place andof language as passage between distant or disparate human beings,and between human beings and the more-than-human world. Theselections are framed by Susan Knutson’s deeply attentive criticalintroduction and by Marlatt’s “immediacies of writing,” a new lyricalessay investigating the act of writing. Closing with a walking meditationsituated by her Buddhist practice, Rivering is both a “pocket Marlatt” andan introduction to one of the best poets of our time.PrintApril 201480 pages6 x 9Laurier Poetry series978-1-77112-038-8paper $16.99Digital978-1-77112-040-1epub $11.99Daphne Marlatt, poet, novelist, essayist, oral historian,and Noh dramatist, has been writing and publishingfor four decades.

Political ScienceThe Fence and the BridgeGeopolitics and Identity along the Canada–US BorderHeather N. NicolThe Fence and the Bridge is about the development of the Canada–USborder-security relationship as an outgrowth of the much lengthierCanada–US relationship. It suggests that this relationship has beenboth highly reflexive and hegemonic over time, and that such realitiesare embodied in the metaphorical images and texts that describe theCanada–US border over its history.Nicol argues that prominent security motifs, such as themes of freetrade, illegal immigration, cross-border crime, terrorism, and territorialsovereignty are not new, nor are they limited to the post-9/11 era.

Surviving IncarcerationSocial SciencesInside Canadian PrisonsRose RicciardelliIs prison a humane form of punishment and an effective means of rehabilitation?Are current prison policies, such as shifting resources awayfrom rehabilitation toward housing more offenders, improving the safetyand lives of incarcerated populations?Considering that many Canadians have served time, are currently incarcerated,or may one day be incarcerated—and will be released back intosociety—it is essential for the functioning and betterment of communitiesthat we understand the realities that shape the prison experiencefor adult male offenders. Surviving Incarceration reveals the unnecessaryand omnipresent violence in prisons, the heterogeneity of the prisonerpopulation, and the realities that different prisoners navigate in order tosurvive.Ricciardelli draws on interviews with almost sixty former federal prisonersto show how their criminal convictions, masculinity, and sexualitydetermined their social status in prison and, in consequence, theirpotential for victimization. The book outlines the modern “inmate code”that governs prisoner behaviours, the formal controls put forth by theadministration, the dynamics that shape sex-offender experiences ofincarceration, and the personal growth experiences of many prisoners asthey cope with incarceration.PrintMay 2014250 pages6 x 9978-1-77112-053-1paper $34.99Digital978-1-77112-055-5epub $23.99RelatedFrom the Iron House:Imprisonment in FirstNations WritingDeena Rymhs2008162 pages6 x 9Indigenous Studies series978-1-55458-021-7hardcover $65.00978-1-77112-057-9epub $42.95Rose Ricciardelli is an assistant professor at MemorialUniversity.

Canada and Africa in theNew MillenniumPolitical ScienceThe Politics of Consistent InconsistencyDavid R. BlackCanada’s engagement with post-independence Africa presents a puzzle.Although Canada is recognized for its activism where Africa is concerned,critics have long noted the contradictions that underlie Canadianinvolvement. Focusing on the period following 2000, and by juxtaposingJean Chrétien’s G8 activism with the Harper government’s retreat fromcontinental engagement, David R. Black’s Canada and Africa in the NewMillennium illustrates a history of consistent inconsistency in Canada’srelationship with Africa.PrintJuly 2014240 pages6 x 9978-1-77112-060-9paper $42.99Digital978-1-77112-062-3epub $29.99David R.

To examine Africa’s place in Canada’s foreign policy—andCanada’s place in Africa—Black focuses on G8 diplomacy, foreign aid,security assistance through peace operations and training, and theincreasingly controversial impact of Canadian extractive companies.Offering an integrated account of Canada’s role in sub-Saharan Africa,Black provides a way of understanding the nature and resilience ofrecent shifts in Canadian policy. He underscores how Africa—thoughmarginal to Canadian interests as traditionally conceived—has served asan important marker of Canada’s international role.Spring/Summer 201419
