    What separates campaigns that win from those that don’t?

    Am I Safe Here? LGBTQ Teens and Bullying in Schools Paperback Donn Short 9780774890212 $22.95 EDUCATION Oct 15, 2017
    “Am I safe here?” LGBTQ students ask this question every day within the school system. In this book, Donn Short treats students as the experts, asking them to shine a light on the marginalization and bullying faced by LGBTQ youth. They insightfully identify that safety comes from a culture that values equity and social justice, not just security cameras, and they envision a future in which LGBTQ youth are an expected, respected, and celebrated part of school life. Am I Safe Here? offers a path to creating equitable and inclusive schools, drawin... + Read More

    Hunting the Northern Character Hardcover Tony Penikett 9780774880008 $34.95 POLITICAL SCIENCE Nov 15, 2017
    Canadian politicians, like many of their circumpolar counterparts, brag about their country’s “Arctic identity” or “northern character,” but what do they mean, exactly? Stereotypes abound, from Dudley Do-Right to Northern Exposure, but these southern perspectives fail to capture northern realities. During decades of service as a legislator, mediator, and negotiator, Tony Penikett witnessed a new northern consciousness grow out of the challenges of the Cold War, climate change, land rights struggles, and the boom and bust of resource megaproject... + Read More

    Give and Take The Citizen-Taxpayer and the Rise of Canadian Democracy Hardcover Shirley Tillotson 9780774836722 $39.95 HISTORY Nov 15, 2017
    A book about tax history that’s a real page-turner? Give and Take is full of surprises. A Canadian millionaire who embraced the new federal income tax in 1917. A socialist hero who deplored the burden of big government. Most surprising, twentieth-century taxes have made us richer, in political engagement and more. Taxes make the power of the state obvious, and Canadians often resisted that power. But this is not simply a tale of tax rebels. Tillotson argues that Canadians also made real contributions to democracy when they taxed wisely and paid... + Read More

    Series: Law and Society Claire L’Heureux-Dubé A Life Hardcover Constance Backhouse 9780774836326 $49.95 BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY Nov 01, 2017
    Both lionized and vilified, Claire L’Heureux-Dubé has shaped the Canadian legal landscape – and in particular its highest court. Only the second woman on the Supreme Court of Canada, L’Heureux-Dubé anchored her approach to cases in their social, economic, and political context. This compelling biography takes a similar tack, tracing the experience of a francophone woman within the male-dominated Quebec legal profession – and within the primarily anglophone world of the Supreme Court. In the process, Constance Backhouse enhances our understandin... + Read More

    Resilient Gods Being Pro-Religious, Low Religious, or No Religious in Canada Paperback Reginald W. Bibby 9780774890069 $29.95 SOCIAL SCIENCE Oct 01, 2017
    Are Canadians becoming less religious? After playing a central role in our lives for nearly a century, religion did seem to be losing its salience. But there is more to the story. Resilient Gods takes an in-depth look at the religious landscape today. The picture that emerges is not one of religious decline but rather of polarization, with the numbers of “pro-” “no,” and “low” religious in flux. Using the most current information available, Bibby explores the implications of religious choices for personal and social well-being, spirituality, an... + Read More
