A VICTORIAN AUTHORITY:  THE DAILY PRESS IN LATE NINETEENTH-CENTURY CANADA., Rutherford, Paul.
206 Rutherford, Paul. A VICTORIAN AUTHORITY: THE DAILY PRESS IN LATE NINETEENTH-CENTURY CANADA.
Toronto University of Toronto Press 1982 802055885 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ 
292 pp, 9 1/4" H. Pictorial boards (no dust jacket - as issued?), black endpapers, b&w illustrations. "During the last third of the nineteenth century a fierce rivalry among party 'organs', sectarian dailies, upstart 'people's journals', and revamped 'quality' papers fashioned a popular journalism for a large, chiefly urban audiece in Canada. By the end of the 1890s, the number of daily and weekly editions of these newspapers exceeded the count of Canadian families. The country's first mass medium had arrived. Professor Rutherford charts the growth of the daily press, describing personalities and events. He surveys the cultural prerequisites for mass communication - the growth of the city, of urban politics, and of mass literacy - and looks at the personnel, business routines, and worries of the new industry, showing how the news and views, ads and entertainment of the press changed as publishers competed for increased circulation. He also analyses the mythologies purveyed by the popular press across Canada, defines the press's connection with the 'establishment', and shows how daily papers suited the libertarian model of a 'free press'." Very small bump at top of spine.

He founded both the Canadian Musc Centre, and was a founding member of the Canada Council. He was also the first president of the Composers, Authors and Publishers Association of Canada.

213 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w plates. "Exactly how the (Toronto) 'Telegram' came to feature Marilyn Bell's first-person, front-page account of her swim across Lake Ontario while she was under exclusive contract to the 'Toronto Star' continues to interest students of newspaper ethics to this day. But in the 1950s, as veteran newspaperman Val Sears recounts, shenanigans of this sort were commonplace. In their competition to build readership, newspapers resorted to extreme measures - even hiding crime victims - for the sake of an exclusive story. It was the age of the great newspaper wars and Val Sears was a frontline combatant. His rollicking account of the events that made the headlines, and the behind-the-scenes skirmishes among reporters battling for a scoop, is often hilarious, sometimes surprising, and occasionally tragic. Whether he is describing the bank-robbing Boyd Gang, whose repeated escapes from a Toronto prison inspired hysteria and ended in murder, the horrible devastation inflicted by Hurricane Hazel, or the miracle of the men who survived the collapse of the coal mine in Springhill, Nova Scotia, (he) demonstrates a marvellous wit and the skills of a gifted raconteur. Journalists in particular will be interested in Sears' view of how newspaper reporting has changed over the years: how stories were carefully 'built', or often stolen from other papers; how the role of the reporter has shifted, and how readers have also altered their expectations of their daily newspaper."

319pp, 9 1/4" H. Orange/red boards with black lettering on spine/front board - no dust jacket (as issued). B&w illustrations. "(T)races the development of the Supreme Court of Canada from its establishment in the earliest days following Confederation, through its attainment of independence from the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in 1949, to the adoption of the Constitution Act, 1982. The authors describe the politics of the judicial appointments and document the internal struggles and tensions between justices. Central to the story is the attitude of successive federal governments to the need for a strong and intellectually vibrant court. Until 1982 the Supreme Court of Canada played a minor role in the history of the Canadian political structure. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms has thrust new responsibility on the Court, and as those responsibilities are increasingly exercised in the years ahead the Court will become a major participant in our national life. This book explores the foundation on which that participation will be built." Minor edge wear, very small erased pencil mark on free front endpaper.

206 pp, 9 1/4" H. "(A) dramatic, no-holds-barred account of the long political season from January 1983 to September 1984 - from the review of Joe Clark's leadership of the Progressive Conservatives, through the resignation of Pierre Trudeau, and two leadership conventions, to the stunning election of Brian Mulroney as Canada's Prime Minister - an event that meant the end of an era. (G)ives us frank, critical portraits of the major aspirants for the nation's highest office, from John Crosbie and Jean Chretien to JohnTurner and Ed Broadbent, as well as the man who ultimately emerged the victor, Brian Mulroney. Snider followed the candidates across the country as they battled for victory in both the Tory and Liberal campaigns. He was there through the landslide election of Tory September. He conducted interviews throughout, formal and informal, talking to the candidates, to the men and women working with them and to those who simply watched from the sidelines as events unfolded. And he pulls no punches in his description of the events and those players; he gives us behind-the-scenes stories and irreverent anecdotes that never appeared in the newspapers. Behind the political battles lies a society of changing values and conflicting ideas. (This) is a dramatic portrait of power and democracy in Canada." Minor wrinkling at top of spine.
