By Alicia Elliott. 2019
In an urgent and visceral work that asks essential questions about Native people in North America while drawing on intimate… details of her own life and experience with intergenerational trauma, Alicia Elliott offers indispensable insight and understanding to the ongoing legacy of colonialism. What are the links between depression, colonialism and loss of language--both figurative and literal? How does white privilege operate in different contexts? How do we navigate the painful contours of mental illness in loved ones without turning them into their sickness? How does colonialism operate on the level of literary criticism? A Mind Spread Out on the Ground is Alicia Elliott's attempt to answer these questions and more. In the process, she engages with such wide-ranging topics as race, parenthood, sexuality, love, mental illness, poverty, sexual assault, gentrification, writing and representation. Elliott makes connections both large and small between the past and present, the personal and political--from overcoming a years-long history with head lice to the way Native writers are treated within the Canadian literary industry; her unplanned teenage pregnancy to the history of dark matter and how it relates to racism in the court system; her childhood diet of Kraft dinner to how systematic oppression is linked to depression in Native communities. With deep consideration and searing prose, Elliott extends far beyond her own experiences to provide a candid look at our past, an illuminating portrait of our present and a powerful tool for a better future. Bestseller. 2019.
By Samra Habib. 2019
Growing up in Pakistan, Samra Habib lacks a blueprint for the life she wants. She has a mother who gave… up everything to be a pious, dutiful wife and an overprotective father who seems to conspire against a life of any adventure. Plus, she has to hide the fact that she's Ahmadi to avoid persecution from religious extremists. As the threats against her family increase, they seek refuge in Canada, where new financial and cultural obstacles await them. When Samra discovers that her mother has arranged her marriage, she must again hide a part of herself--the fun-loving, feminist teenager that has begun to bloom--until she simply can't any longer. So begins a journey of self-discovery that takes her to Tokyo, where she comes to terms with her sexuality, and to a queer-friendly mosque in Toronto, where she returns to her faith in the same neighbourhood where she attended her first drag show. Along the way, she learns that the facets of her identity aren't as incompatible as she was led to believe, and that her people had always been there--the world just wasn't ready for them yet. 2019.
By Rachel Matlow. 2020
"A hilarious memoir of effervescent misadventures." --Toronto Star"How am I laughing at someone's mother's cancer? How? We think we can't… laugh about death, about cancer, about our mothers and their suffering . . . and we can't, but we can. And there's so much relief in that. I laughed, I cried, I laughed and laughed and laughed." --Carolyn Taylor, BARONESS VON SKETCH SHOWA traumedy about life and death (and every cosmic joke in between)When her mother is diagnosed with cancer, Rachel Matlow is concerned but hopeful. It's Stage 1, so her mom will get surgery and everything will go back to normal. But growing up in Rachel's family, there was no normal. Elaine, an alternative school teacher and self-help junkie, was never a capital M "Mommy"--she spent more time meditating than packing lunches--and Rachel, who played hockey with the boys and refused to ever wear a dress, was no ordinary daughter.When Elaine decides to forgo conventional treatment and heal herself naturally, Rachel is forced to ponder whether the very things that made her mom so special--her independent spirit, her belief in being the author of her own story--are what will ultimately kill her. As the cancer progresses, so does Elaine's conviction in doing things her way. She assembles a dream team of alternative healers, gulps down herbal tinctures with every meal, and talks (with respect) to her cancer cells. Anxious and confused, Rachel is torn between indulging her pie-in-the-sky pursuits (ayahuasca and all) and pleading with the person who's taking her mother away.With irreverence and honesty--and a little help from Elaine's journals and self-published dating guide, plus hours of conversations recorded in her dying days--Matlow brings her inimitable mother to life on the page. Dead Mom Walking is the hilarious and heartfelt story of what happens when two people who've always written their own script go head to head with each other, and with life's least forgiving plot device.

This book explores why widespread predictions of the radical transformation in the recording industry did not materialise Although the… growing revenue generated from streaming signals the recovery of the digital music business it is important to ask to what extent is the current development a response to digital innovation Hyojung Sun finds the answer in the detailed innovation process that has taken place since Napster She reassesses the way digital music technologies were encultured in complex music valorisation processes and demonstrates how the industry has become reintermediated rather than disintermediated This book offers a new understanding of digital disruption in the recording industry It captures the complexity of the innovation processes that brought about technological development which arose as a result of interaction across the circuit of the recording business production distribution valorisation and consumption By offering a more sophisticated account than the prevailing dichotomy the book exposes deterministic myths surrounding the radical transformation of the industry
This book presents a collection of philosophical essays on freedom and tolerance in the Netherlands. It explores liberal freedom and… its limits in areas such as freedom of speech, public reason, sexual morality, euthanasia, drugs policy, and minority rights. The book takes Dutch practices as exemplary test cases for the principled discussions on these subjects from the perspective of political liberalism. Indeed, the Netherlands may be viewed as a social laboratory in human tolerance. During the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s, Holland took the lead in a global emancipation process towards a society based on equal freedom. It was the first country to legalize euthanasia, soft drugs and gay marriage. In the final sections, the book examines the question of whether the political murders on the politician Pim Fortuyn and the film director Theo van Gogh, the reactions to Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s film Submission, as well as the success of the populist politician Geert Wilders are signs of the end of Dutch tolerance. Although it recognizes that the political climate has taken a conservative turn, the book shows that the Netherlands still shows remarkable tolerance.

The challenges to global order posed by rapid environmental change are increasingly recognized as defining features of our time … In this groundbreaking work the concept of innovation is deployed to explore normative and institutional responses in international law to such environmental change by addressing two fundamental themes first whether law can foresee prevent and adapt to environmental transformations and second whether international legal responses to social economic and technological innovation can appropriately reflect the evolving needs of contemporary societies at national and international scales Using a range of case studies the contributions to this collection track innovation - descriptively normatively and as a process in and of itself - to explain international environmental law s functionality in the Anthropocene This book should be read by anyone interested in the critical intersection of environmental and international law

By Kaushik Basu. 2018
A leading economist offers a radically new approach to the economic analysis of the lawIn The Republic of Beliefs … Kaushik Basu one of the world s leading economists argues that the traditional economic analysis of the law has significant flaws and has failed to answer certain critical questions satisfactorily Why are good laws drafted but never implemented When laws are unenforced is it a failure of the law or the enforcers And most important considering that laws are simply words on paper why are they effective Basu offers a provocative alternative to how the relationship between economics and real-world law enforcement should be understood Basu summarizes standard neoclassical law and economics before looking at the weaknesses underlying the discipline Bringing modern game theory to bear he develops a focal point approach modeling not just the self-interested actions of the citizens who must follow laws but also the functionaries of the state the politicians judges and bureaucrats enforcing them He demonstrates the connections between social norms and the law and shows how well-conceived ideas can change and benefit human behavior For example bribe givers and takers will collude when they are treated equally under the law And in food support programs vouchers should be given directly to the poor to prevent shop owners from selling subsidized rations on the open market Basu provides a new paradigm for the ways that law and economics interact a framework applicable to both less-developed countries and the developed world Highlighting the limits and capacities of law and economics The Republic of Beliefs proposes a fresh way of thinking that will enable more effective laws and a fairer society

By Atif Mian, Amir Sufi. 2015
<p>The Great American Recession resulted in the loss of eight million jobs between 2007 and 2009. More than four million… homes were lost to foreclosures. Is it a coincidence that the United States witnessed a dramatic rise in household debt in the years before the recession―that the total amount of debt for American households doubled between 2000 and 2007 to $14 trillion? Definitely not. Armed with clear and powerful evidence, Atif Mian and Amir Sufi reveal in <i>House of Debt</i> how the Great Recession and Great Depression, as well as the current economic malaise in Europe, were caused by a large run-up in household debt followed by a significantly large drop in household spending. <p>Though the banking crisis captured the public’s attention, Mian and Sufi argue strongly with actual data that current policy is too heavily biased toward protecting banks and creditors. Increasing the flow of credit, they show, is disastrously counterproductive when the fundamental problem is too much debt. As their research shows, excessive household debt leads to foreclosures, causing individuals to spend less and save more. Less spending means less demand for goods, followed by declines in production and huge job losses. How do we end such a cycle? With a direct attack on debt, say Mian and Sufi. More aggressive debt forgiveness after the crash helps, but as they illustrate, we can be rid of painful bubble-and-bust episodes only if the financial system moves away from its reliance on inflexible debt contracts. As an example, they propose new mortgage contracts that are built on the principle of risk-sharing, a concept that would have prevented the housing bubble from emerging in the first place. <p>Thoroughly grounded in compelling economic evidence, <i>House of Debt</i> offers convincing answers to some of the most important questions facing the modern economy today: Why do severe recessions happen? Could we have prevented the Great Recession and its consequences? And what actions are needed to prevent such crises going forward?</p>

The Federal Court of Canada which existed from 1875 to 1971 under the name Exchequer Court of Canada … occupies a special place in the court structure of Canada It was founded principally to adjudicate legal disputes in which the Canadian government was involved since its change of name in 1971 it has become primarily an administrative appeal court dealing with the review of decisions made by federal administrative tribunals in addition to its existing jurisdictions admiralty intellectual property tax and other areas As a federal court within the nation its very existence has provoked discussion and debate as the various provincial court systems claim a position of primacy within our society for the adjudication of legal disputes Central to this history of the Court is an examination of the judges who have sat on its bench Bushnell investigates who the judges have been and examines their work with particular focus on the judges views of the proper approach to decision-making His study contains a wealth of information much of which may not be widely known in the profession As such The Federal Court of Canada constitutes a rich source both for those with a legal background and for those with an interest in the working and history of legal institutions

The controversy aroused by the Supreme Court's decision on offshore mineral rights emphsizes the importance of the public domain in… the workings of the Canadian constitution. Public property is important to the provinces not only for its revenues, but also because it provides them with a powerful instrument for control of their economic and political destinies and strengthens their position in relation to federal authorities. The provisions of the British North America Act and other constitutional instruments relating to natural resources and public property are examined thoroughly in this series of lectures given to doctoral systems at the Faulte de droit of the Universite de Montreal. Professor La Forest studies ownership of mines and minerals, navigable waters, public harbours, fisheries and Indian lands, as well as the currently controversial offshore mineral rights. He notes the political imlications of the partition of proprietary rights and explores the areas of conflict between the federal and provincial governments. Also included is a discussion of the power of expropriation, and, because public property involves public monies, lending and spending powers receive attention.In these lectures, Professor La Forest traces public domain in Britain from the time when the monarch controlled all the land, to his surrender of this control to parliament in return for a civil list, and to the similar surrender to the legislatures of the British North American colonies in connection with the struggle of responsible government.The collection of lectures is essential reading for any serious student of the constitution and will be very useful to all who are interested in the increasingly important law of natural resources in Canada.
