  • Elusive Justice

    Beyond the Marshall Inquiry

    Edited by Joy Mannette     January 1992

    “The Marshall Commission Report does not deserve accolades. While it acknowledges errors, negligence and mismanagement, it did not make the connections necessary to begin the process of developing a dialogue about a justice system that Aboriginal people can respect, or which respects Aboriginal people.” - M.E. Turpel, Dalhousie Law School

  • Feminist Pedagogy

    An Autobiographical Approach

    By Anne-Louise Brookes     December 1991

    It has been suggested that my work is not about feminist pedagogy. I have decided that I will not argue this point. Rather, I would like to share with you why I chose this title. I know that I could not have produced this book without the help of scholars learning to work from theoretical perspective and teaching practices defined as feminist. Moreover, it was not accidental that I learned to feel safe enough to confront my experiences of abuse in an environment where scholars offered a universal and coherent analysis of, and alternative to, male-organized educational and social practices. I know that I could not have written my thesis without this analysis. Thus, I use the term feminist pedagogy to refer to the practices which enabled me to write this text. My aim is to illustrate why I think feminist practices are key for many, if not most, students.

  • The Christmas Imperative

    Leisure, Family and Women’s Work

    By Leslie Bella     December 1991

    The book originated in a theoretical critique of the androcentric bias in leisure theory. The notion of ‘family leisure’ is particularly problematic as it suggests that all family members enjoy leisure together. An alternative suggestion is that ‘family leisure’ is in reality ‘women’s work’. The empirical study focuses on family celebrations of Christmas, using informal discussions with women and interviews with women in Alberta, Canada.

  • Two of Me

    By Kim Atwood     January 1991

    “As a therapist, I keep an eye out for creative works which capture the truth of childhood trauma or of the healing process. Kim Atwood’s book, Two of Me, is rich and full in its detailed description of the imaginative and real world of a young girl-child growing up in a fishing village on the seacoast; it is unflinching in its portrayal of the violence and chaos which reign in the home of an alcoholic parent. Atwood’s characters reveal themselves in page after page of simple, everyday, yet powerfully evocative dialogue.” –Toni Ann Laidlaw, Ph.D., Feminist Therapist, Professor–Dalhousie University, Co-Author of Healing Voices: Feminist Approaches to Therapy with Women

  • Letters to Levi

    A Young Fisherman’s Mail

    Edited by Joan Stephenson     January 1991

    “These letters to Levi are a rare find. Not only are they a delight to read, they are also an invitation to search for further buried treasures of correspondence, particularly in long-settled communities where extended family patterns remain unbroken. The reading public, avid readers of local history, and a broad academic community will join to applaud Roseway for the publication of these letters by people who lived in Nova Scotia’s vital South Shore fishing communities.” –Dr. Ken MacKinnon, Professor of English, Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, N.S.
