    North to Bondage Loyalist Slavery in the Maritimes Paperback Harvey Amani Whitfield 9780774832298 $29.95 SOCIAL SCIENCE Feb 01, 2016
    Many Canadians believe their nation fell on the right side of history in harbouring escaped slaves from the United States. In fact, in the wake of the American Revolution, many Loyalist families brought slaves with them when they settled in the Maritime colonies of British North America.

Harvey Amani Whitfield’s book, the first on slavery in the Maritimes, is a startling corrective to the enduring and triumphant narrative of Ca... + Read More

    Planning Toronto The Planners, The Plans, Their Legacies, 1940-80 Hardcover Richard White 9780774829359 $50.00 POLITICAL SCIENCE Feb 15, 2016

While these changes may seem remote, they will have a profound impact on a host of global issues, from international politics to animal migrations.
