1 Abler, Thomas S., Weaver, Sally M. With Claire C. Veillette and Iris V. Yuzdepski. Case Law Digest prepared by Douglas E. Sanders with Paul C. Taylor. A CANADIAN INDIAN BIBLIOGRAPHY 1960-1970.
Toronto University of Toronto Press 1974 0802020925 / 9780802020925 First Edition Near Fine Very Good 
732 pp, 9 1/4" H. "This bibliography lists and annotates material published between 1960 and 1970 of interest to the serious student of the Indians and Metis in Canada. A team of researchers worked through books, monographs, journals, theses, unpublished papers and reports, publications by Indians, and federal and provincial government documents to generate over three throusand entries covering a multi-disciplinary range of aspects of current society and culture. Some aspects such as physical anthropology, biomedicine, archaeology, and linguistics had to be excluded, however. Both English- and French-language sources were covered. The entries are arranged by topic or tribe, and there is an index to assist in cross-reference or finer selection. Of special note is the Case Law Digest, which describes briefly the facts and decisions of all significant legal cases involving Indians since 1867. The systematic exposition of these decisions should help increase understanding of the legal situation in which Indians now live." Dust jacket is price-clipped, has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, light soiling at top of spine, minor rubbing.

"September 27, 1996, marked the day the Taliban seized power in Afghanis tan, and the beginning of a five-year nightmare for the women of that country. 'Veiled Treat' introduces us to several women - among them a radio announcer, a psychiatrist, a pharmacist, a civil engineer and the new deputy prime minister of A f g h a n i stan, Dr. Sima Samar - who describe their waking hell under the Taliban's repressive measures. Denied schooling, employment and adequate health care and confined to their homes unless accompanied by a male relative, women struggled to s ur vi ve . B ut as (this book) vividly illustrates, women and girls also rebelled; many carried out cloak-and-dagger tactics to subvert the hateful edicts of the Taliban..."

512 pp, 9 1/2" H. Medium green cloth spine with gilt lettering/decoration, front/rear boards with colour illustration by Sue Scullard. Cream endpapers, b&w illustrations. "This edition follows that of the single-volume (Oxford) edition of 1945, with minor emendations." The basis of the charming BBC series, this fictionalized autobiography follows the life of 'Laura', a bookish, nature-loving child as she grows up in the hamlet of Lark Rise (Juniper Hill, Oxfordshire) towards the end of the 19th century. We are introduced to all the characters of the hamlet - Queenie, who keeps bees and makes lace, her husband, Twister, who beat her only once and never again, Caroline Arles, who never lets the lack of money stand in the way of a good time, the quiet Methodists, Old Sally with the most amazing garden, etc. Fathers and mothers work hard to keep the ever-arriving children fed and clothed and Laura tells us much about how this was achieved. We watch her go off to school in the 'mother village', visit relatives in the much larger and more prosperous Candleford and finally begin her working life at the post office in Candleford Green under the benevolent supervision of Dorcas Lane. Light rubbing/wear at top/bottom of spine, light wrinkling at bottom of spine, crease across spine approx. 1/2" up from the bottom edge. Slipcase has a very small bump at bottom rear edge, minor rubbing.
