The Canadian census lists more than one hundred ethnicities in the Canadian population, making it rather unique even among modern, multi-ethnic nations. Understanding Diversity is a core text for use at universities and colleges across Canada. Its aim is to stimulate students to think about ethnicity and race in a more systematic, analytical manner -- one that will lead to a better understanding of the important place of ethnicity in Canada and in the global society. Over the past 30 years or so, an entire body of theoretical and empirical knowledge has developed about ethnicity and ethnic and race relations in Canada. While researchers may disagree on specific issues, they have much in common and they share a basic agreement on the importance of quantitative and qualitative methods in resolving their outstanding differences. This book describes the essential features of the “sub-discipline” that has emerged in this area and it details what we know, don’t know, and still need to know about ethnicity and ethnic and race relations in Canada.

    Understanding International Relations 4ed.

    Price
    93.90 BBD

    The fourth edition of this well-established and popular introductory textbook has been updated to cover recent developments in the field of International Relations and world events, whilst still navigating the complexities of the discipline for new students. Brown and Ainley provide systematic coverage of the classical concerns of International Relations theory - power, national interest, foreign policy and war - alongside analysis of the impact of globalization on security, governance and the world economy.

    The authors actively avoid using a singular theoretical lens to conduct their survey, instead evaluating and using many throughout this book to further illustrate the nuances of the discipline. This is all while maintaining the focus on the discipline's focus on real world events, with case studies ranging from the recent rise of China and Russia to the global economic downturn, to teach students how the discipline can be applied to understanding the central and difficult questions that the world faces today.

    Clear and accessible, but also critical and penetrating, this book is an essential text for undergraduate International Relations students today.

    Uniting Europe: European Integration and the Post-Cold War World

    Price
    108.95 BBD

    As the European Union (EU) introduces its new currency, the euro, it has embarked on an equally ambitious new venture: enlarging to include ten or more of the former communist countries of central and eastern Europe along with Cyprus and Malta. If enlargement proceeds as envisioned, the EU of the twenty-first century could have as many as thirty countries and a population nearly double that of the United States. In this timely and accessible text, John Van Oudenaren explores whether a political and economic union this large and diverse can hold together and whether it can accomplish the policy tasks that matter to its citizens: sustaining economic growth and reducing unemployment, raising living standards in poorer regions, preserving the environment, and coping with the problems of immigration and political instability on EuropeOs borders. To reach these goals, the author argues that the EU must build on its existing achievements_the single market, the common currency, and common policies in many areas. At the same time, the union must reform its institutions and decision making processes and find ways to balance the needs of its member states and the competing demands of different interest groups. How the EU will evolve is still unclear; there is no precise blueprint for its future. But the historic attempt to unite Europe will have enormous implications not only for Europe itself, but for the United States as a key European ally, trading partner, and on occasion rival. By providing an overview of the UnionOs institutions, laws, and policies, Van Oudenaren provides a solid foundation for understanding its history and emergence as a global economic_and political_power.

    US Imperialism has lost the Cold War

    Price
    10.10 BBD

    U.S. Imperialism Has Lost the Cold War ...That's what the Socialist Workers Party concluded in the wake of the collapse of regimes and parties across Eastern Europe and in the USSR that claimed to be Communist. Contrary to imperialism's hopes, the working class in those countries has not been crushed. It remains an intractable obstacle to reimposing and stabilizing capitalist relations, one that will have to be confronted by the exploiters in class battlesin a hot war. Issue no. 11 of the Marxist magazine New International analyzes the propertied rulers' failed expectations and charts a course for revolutionaries in response to the renewed rise of worker and farmer resistance to the economic and social instability, spreading wars, and rightist currents bred by the world market system. It explains why the historic odds in favor of the working class have increased, not diminished, at the opening of the 21st century. Also includes: The Communist Strategy of Party Building Today by Mary-Alice Waters Socialism

    Vander's Human Physiology 11ed.

    Price
    206.80 BBD

    Eric Widmaier (Boston University), Hershel Raff (Medical College of Wisconsin), and Kevin Strang (University of Wisconsin) have taken on the challenge of maintaining the strengths and reputation of Vander’s Human Physiology: The Mechanisms of Body Function. Moving beyond the listing of mere facts, it stressed the causal chains of events that constitute the mechanisms of body function. The fundamental purpose of this textbook is to present the principles and facts of human physiology in a format that is suitable for undergraduates regardless of academic background or field of study.

    Vander’s Human Physiology, eleventh edition, carries on the tradition of clarity and accuracy, while refining and updating the content to meet the needs of today’s instructors and students. The eleventh edition features a streamlined, clinically oriented focus to the study of human body systems. It has also responded to reviewer requests for more clinical applications. Chapter 19 is new and contains three complete case studies. Physiology Inquiries have also been added to many figures throughout the chapters. These critical-thinking questions are just one more opportunity to add to the student’s learning experience.

    Voices of Ancient Philosophy: An Introductory Reader

    Price
    140.45 BBD

    Edited by one of the most renowned scholars in the field, Voices of Ancient Philosophy: An Introductory Reader is a unique and accessible introduction to the richness of ancient philosophy. Featuring a topical--as opposed to chronological--organization, this text introduces students to the wide range of approaches and traditions in ancient philosophy. In each section Annas presents the ancient debates on a particular philosophical topic, drawing on a greater diversity of ancient sources than a chronological approach allows. The book is divided into six sections: Fate and Freedom; Reason and Emotion; Knowledge, Belief, and Skepticism; Metaphysical Questions; How Should You Live?; and Society and the State. Annas includes a generous selection of the works of Plato and Aristotle, as well as those of the Stoics, Epicureans, and Skeptics. She also includes selections from less familiar philosophers and from authors in whose works philosophical issues arise, such as poets, medical writers, historians, and Jewish and Christian writers. The volume features biographical sketches of the philosophers, a timeline, and short discussions of the major movements in ancient philosophy. An excellent text for courses in ancient philosophy and history of philosophy, Voices of Ancient Philosophy: An Introductory Reader will also be of interest to scholars and general readers.
