124 Holmes, John W. THE SHAPING OF PEACE: CANADA AND THE SEARCH FOR WORLD ORDER, 1943-1957. VOLUME 2.
Toronto University of Toronto Press 1982 0802055419 / 9780802055415 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
443 pp, 9 1/4" H. "The establishment of the United Nations system at the conclusion of the Second World War was followed by a period of disillusion in the late 40s about the prospects of world order. With the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950 there came a regrouping of forces and revised calculations of what was possible. The first volume of 'The Shaping of Peace' described Canadian attitudes and policies towards international institutions as the Second World War ended. This volume is concerned with the developments in the decade after the war, with the changing Canadian concepts as they were shaped by events and challenges. Although principal attention is paid to the organs of the United Nations, other themes such as the establishment of NATO, the progress of the new Commonwealth, and the changing concepts of the North American relationship are analysed as essential elements in the Canadian search for equilibrium." Minor wrinkling at top of front hinge. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling, very light browning.

125 Holt, Simma. TERROR IN THE NAME OF GOD: THE STORY OF THE SONS OF FREEDOM DOUKHOBORS.
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1964 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good- 
312 pp, 9 1/2" H. Map endpapers, b&w photographs. "Shocking, tragic, almost unbelievable, is this account of the strange sect and its fanatic leaders who have defied the laws of Canada for over fifty years. (Uses) the records of the RCMP, the courts, and the government, (and) also the statements of the Doukhobors themselves to complete this history of the sect from its origin in Russia to the present day. It is a story of fanatical terrorism let loose in the name of religious freedom; of a Mafia-like organization growing more sophisticated in its criminal activities with each passing year - an organization which has killed twenty-three Canadians, destroyed almost twenty million dollars' worth of property, and warped the lives of successive generations of Doukhobor children." Very light browning to edges of text block, very small bump at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds; toning to flap-folds, hinges and edges; several very small edge tears and chips; light rubbing; a few tiny scuffs on spine; crease down rear flap; now protected in a mylar sleeve.

AMPLE MANSIONS:  THE VICEREGAL RESIDENCES OF THE CANADIAN PROVINCES., Hubbard, R.H.  Foreword by Her Excellency, Jeanne Sauve.

Ottawa University of Ottawa Pres 1989 0776602772 / 9780776602776 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good+ 
237 pp, oblong (9 1/4" H x 12 1/4" D). Profusely illustrated with b&w and colour photographs, repro-ductions. "The viceregal residences of the Canadian provinces mirror the idiosyncrasies of their inhabitants, and the tastes and talents of the architects, builders, gardeners, furniture makers and decorators who created them. In 'Ample Mansions' you will see the finest - and sometimes the worst - of Canadian style. There's no shortage of pomp in our viceregal history, but Dr. Hubbard's scholarly and sprightly text goes behind the scenes too, where there's plenty of room for rot and mildew, plugged drains and erratic staff. There are ample mansions crumbling from neglect, ample mansions consumed in conflagrations, ample mansions falling victim to political spats - and ample mansions rising in new splendour." Fine book. Dust jacket has three small areas of minor rubbing on rear panel.

129 Jack, Donald. Forewords by Pierre Berton and Martin M. Hoffman, M.D. ROGUES, REBELS, AND GENIUSES: THE STORY OF CANADIAN MEDICINE.
Toronto Doubleday Canada 1981 0385155751 / 9780385155755 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
662 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs, reproductions. "(A) lively and absorbing account of more than 400 years of medicine in Canada, from the Indian shamans to the present day. Canadian doctors have made an enormous contribution to world medicine - their achievements range from the discovery of insulin to the development of the cobalt bomb. And the famouse names are here: Grenfell, Archibald, Osler, Bethune, Penfield, Selye, Banting. But, as Pierre Berton points out in his foreword, (this) is 'more than a history of Canadian medicine: in a curious way it is also a history of the Canadian nation. In his monumental examination of the place of doctors in our history, Donald Jack makes it clear that since Cartier's day medical men have been bound up in the development of the country - not only as practitioners but also as politicians, explorers, gadflies, soldiers, community leaders.' The author brings to his subject not only a depth of research but a novelist's eye for the dramatic, the humorous, and the eccentric. The medical men and women who appear in these pages, 'in their furs and shirtsleeves, bloodstained frock coats and sterilzed gowns, tell an intensely personal story of triumphant response to challenge; triumphant not least because their lives affirm the supreme value of the individual ego'." Wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor rubbing. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine, light rubbing, slight browning to top/bottom edges.

161 pp, 9 3/8" H x 10 3/16" D. B&w photographs, reproductions. "Chautauqua brought education, inspiration, and entertainment to the people of Canada. They flocked to the brown tents - symbols of the movement - to hear noted lecturers, listen to good music, and see live theatre. To many in small towns across the prairies and in isolated areas it brought their only opportunity for a cultural experience; it brightened their lives by bringing a touch of drama, a glimpse of far away places and a sense of magic, and thus filled an important need in their lives. This book traces the history of its phenomenon in Canada. It touches on its beginnings in the United States and on the lives of its Canadian founders, John M. and Nola B. Erickson. The work of the Ericksons in developing Chautauqua, the activities of the many young people who assisted in operating the circuits, and the experiences of the talent who appeared on the platforms, are all a part of the story."

Toronto University of Toronto Press 1977 0802022707 / 9780802022707 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good 
342 pp, 10 1/2" H. B&w photographs. "In 1898 a group of scientists, working without pay, often under hazardous conditions with only the most primitive equipment, began a systematic study of the fishes of Canada's inland and marine waters. The team operated under the aegis of a board of management which was later to evolve into the Fisheries Research Board, a scientific organization that has placed Candada among the world's leaders in fishery knowledge. This history of the Fisheries Research Board examines the aims and achievements of its research, its attempts to deal with the often conflicting demands of pure and applied science, and its confrontations with a frequently uncomprehending and dissatisfied government. The people who shaped and sustained the organization figure prominently in the account. In-depth taped interviews with senior members and employees, as well as the Annual Reports and other publications of the Department of Fisheries, have enabled (the author) to produce a rich history of a remarkable scientific organization."

"(C)anadian science began to develop quickly (during and after the Second World War), and in the 1950s the rise in Canada's position as a scientific nation was phenomenal. The laboratories of the National Research Council in Ottawa became centres of scientific excellence to which young scientists from five continents eagerly gravitated. Much of this development was due to the ability, vision, and enthusiasm of Ned Steacie, president of the NRC from 1952 to 1962. (This book) recounts a classic case of the right man in the right place at the right time. Under Steacie's leadership the NRC achieved an international status that scientific institutions around the world envied, and with a swiftness that has seldom been matched."

KICKING ASS IN CANADIAN POLITICS., Kinsella, Warren.  Inscribed.
140 Kinsella, Warren. Inscribed. KICKING ASS IN CANADIAN POLITICS.
Random House Canada, n.p., 2001, first printing. 
245 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0679310851 INSCRIBED ON HALF TITLE PAGE: "TO T____ BEST WISHES & MANY THANKS! WARREN NOV. 2001". ALSO INSCRIBED ON VERSO OF FRONT FREE ENDPAPER: "T____, HOPEFULLY MY RETIREMENT WILL BE AS ENJOYABLE AS YOURS, MIKE HARRIS". The second inscription is in two different coloured inks (possibly two different hands). "(F)or the first time, Kinsella lifts the veil on what really goes on inside campaigns - and it's not pretty. This is the good, the bad and the ugly of partisan politics, and Kinsella argues that all three are necessary for a healthy and democratic political dialogue. But this isn't a cynic's book on how to manipulate the voting public. The advice from the Prince of Darkness is 'stay on message, and stick to the truth'. Those practitioners of the black arts who resort to lies and cheating are most often burned at the stake by the voters. And he marshals plenty of evidence and insider stories from the hottest campaigns and campaigners in Canada and the United States - among them, James Carville, Besey Wright, Haley Barbour and Dick Morris - to prove his point. Your'll learn about push-polling, frugging, ratf**king, quick response, dirty tricks and oppo, and you'll learn how to counter them all. You'll be treated to Kinsella's Twelve Handy Tips for Surviving Encounters with Unethical, Unscrupulous, Unprincipled Political Journalists, as well as to his unique rating system on whose political reporting you can trust. This is a must-read not only for political junkies but also for marketers and PR flaks alike: it is a handbook, not only on how to win, but how to make sure your opponent loses." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has some minor rubbing/tiny shallow dints on rear panel. Very Good+/Very Good+
