Rethinking Canadian Aid
  • Author : Stephen brown
  • Release : 09 June 2016
  • Publisher : University of Ottawa Press
  • Pages : 340 Pages
  • ISBN : 0776623656
  • Category : Political Science

Synopsis:
This book contributes to a “rethinking” Canadian aid at four different levels. First, it undertakes a collective rethinking of the foundations of Canadian aid, including both its normative underpinnings – an altruistic desire to reduce poverty and inequality and achieve greater social justice, a means to achieve commercial or strategic self-interest, or a projection of Canadian values and prestige onto the world stage – and aid’s past record. Second, it analyzes how the Canadian government government is itself rethinking Canadian aid, including greater focus on the Americas and specific themes (such as mothers, children and youth, and fragile states) and countries, increased involvement of the private sector (particularly Canadian mining companies), and greater emphasis on self-interest. Third, it rethinks where Canadian aid is or should be heading, including recommendations for improved development assistance. Fourth,

From Subjects to Citizens
  • Author : Pierre Boyer
  • Release : 24 May 2022
  • Publisher : University of Ottawa Press
  • Pages : 328 Pages
  • ISBN : 0776605534
  • Category : Political Science

Synopsis:
A century ago, the legal concept of Canadian and Australian Citizenship as we understand it today did not exist. It was not until 1946 and 1948, respectively, that Canada and Australia adopted national citizenship, a move that allowed each country to define its own distinct character, and emphasize its independence from Britain and the Commonwealth. In this collection of essays, Canadian and Australian scholars examine the history, present, and future of citizenship in both countries. The book opens with two essays that examine the meaning and concept of citizenship, in both historical and contemporary contexts, and its relation to the state. The second section explores the early politics of citizenshipincluding examinations of civic debate, democracy, women as citizens, and culture. The third section includes essays on the challenges that traditional British notions of citizenship have faced in both countries, including aborigi

Northern Spirits
  • Author : Robert Sibley
  • Release : 24 May 2022
  • Publisher : McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP
  • Pages : 408 Pages
  • ISBN : 0773574999
  • Category : Philosophy

Synopsis:
The recovery of Watson's thought is particularly valuable. Sibley shows that Watson, an internationally respected philosopher in the early twentieth century, discussed idealism and support for imperialism in ways that are particularly relevant in our new age of empire. A consideration of Grant's relationship to Hegel illuminates what led Grant to declare that Canada was "impossible" in the age of technology. Sibley's comparison of Grant and Trudeau is both unexpected and intriguing. So, too, is his analysis of the "illiberal strands" in Taylor's "politics of recognition."

Scottish Soldiers in Colonial America

  • Release : 24 May 1997
  • Publisher : Genealogical Publishing Com
  • Pages : 74 Pages
  • ISBN : 080634718X
  • Category : Reference

Synopsis:
The book under consideration here marks the second in a series on Scottish colonial soldiers compiled by emigration authority David Dobson. (The first volume was published as two parts in one.) Working from manuscripts in the Acts of the Privy Council and the Calendar of British State Papers and published sources such as the Aberdeen Journal, the Edinburgh Advertiser, and the Georgia Gazette, the author has uncovered information on an additional 750 Scottish colonial solders not found in his earlier book. One such soldier was "John Wright, born in High Calton, Edinburgh, during 1728, an army sergeant who fought in the French and Indian War and in the American War of Independence, witnessed to death of Wolfe on the Plains of Abraham, died in Joppa, Edinburgh, in 1838, father of a Roman Catholic priest in Montreal."

Keepers of the Record

  • Publisher : McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP
  • Pages : 377 Pages
  • ISBN : 0773560491
  • Category : History

Synopsis:
"The Hudson's Bay Company Archives is one of the world's most complete archival collections and a national treasure. Protected in the vaults of the Archives of Manitoba, its documents trace the history of the fur trade, North American exploration, the growth of a retail empire, and the evolution of Canada as a country. Keepers of the Record offers the first comprehensive look at the development of the Hudson's Bay Company Archives over three centuries." "Deidre Simmons places the archives within the historical context of the Company, England, and Canada, as well as British and Canadian archival traditions. Keepers of the Record is illustrated with archival photographs that evoke the texture and slightly musty smell of soft leather and crisp vellum and the ghostly presence of the people who created the pristine script, writing by candlelight in unheated (or overheated, depending on the season) dwellings in the wilderness of the H

Borderland Films
  • Author : Dominique Brégent-Heald
  • Release : 01 November 2015
  • Publisher : U of Nebraska Press
  • Pages : 456 Pages
  • ISBN : 0803278845
  • Category : History

Synopsis:
The concept of North American borderlands in the cultural imagination fluctuated greatly during the Progressive Era as it was affected by similarly changing concepts of identity and geopolitical issues influenced by the Mexican Revolution and the First World War. Such shifts became especially evident in films set along the Mexican and Canadian borders as filmmakers explored how these changes simultaneously represented and influenced views of society at large. Borderland Films examines the intersection of North American borderlands and culture as portrayed through early twentieth-century cinema. Drawing on hundreds of films, Dominique Br�gent-Heald investigates the significance of national borders; the ever-changing concepts of race, gender, and enforced boundaries; the racialized ideas of criminality that painted the borderlands as unsafe and in need of control; and the wars that showed how international conflict significantly

How Hockey Explains Canada

  • Release : 26 September 2012
  • Publisher : Triumph Books
  • Pages : 224 Pages
  • ISBN : 1633190854
  • Category : Sports & Recreation

Synopsis:
The role of hockey in Canada serves as a national identity, a unifying force in a country of 33 million people. So crazed are Canadians for their national sport that they ranked outrageous hockey commentator and high school drop-out Don Cherry ahead of Alexander Graham Bell on a list of the greatest Canadians in history. Penned by hockey star Paul Henderson-famed scorer of Canada's "Greatest Goal" in the 1972 Summit Series-and featuring a foreword by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, "How Hockey Explains Canada" explores just how deeply engrained this national pastime is in the Canadian psyche. The intelligent discourse on Canada's national sport goes far beyond the sport's most-loved icons, great plays, and notorious brawls by looking into the history and culture of the game to explain why hockey has had such an enigmatic hold on Canadians. Featuring interviews with more than 35 current and former NHL players, coaches, executives,

Synopsis:
It was late in the afternoon when Mr Philip Ashton walked up to the door of his residence in Portman-square. His hand touched the knocker irresolutely. ÒIt must be done,Ó he said to himself. ÒMay strength be given to all of them to bear the blow!Ó His hand shook as he rapped. The hall door flew open, a servant in handsome livery stood ready to take his hat and gloves. As he entered the drawing-room his wife and daughters rose to welcome him, with affection beaming in their eyes, as did his three sons, who had just arrived at home from different directions. Mr Ashton retired to rest that night with a mind greatly relieved. He had not doubted the affection of his children, and he was assured that it would enable them to bear their reverse of fortune with cheerfulness. When he rose in the morning he prayed earnestly for strength to go through the work required of him, and that is never denied to those who seek it from Him who c

The Dominion of Youth
  • Author : Cynthia Comacchio

  • Publisher : Wilfrid Laurier Univ. Press
  • Pages : 298 Pages
  • ISBN : 0889204888
  • Category : Family & Relationships

Synopsis:
Adolescence, like childhood, is more than a biologically defined life stage: it is also a sociohistorical construction. The meaning and experience of adolescence are reformulated according to societal needs, evolving scientific precepts, and national aspirations relative to historic conditions. Although adolescence was by no means a “discovery” of the early twentieth century, it did assume an identifiably modern form during the years between the Great War and 1950. The Dominion of Youth: Adolescence and the Making of Modern Canada, 1920 to 1950 captures what it meant for young Canadians to inhabit this liminal stage of life within the context of a young nation caught up in the self-formation and historic transformation that would make modern Canada. Because the young at this time were seen paradoxically as both the hope of the nation and the source of its possible degeneration, new policies and institutions were developed to
