The Veterans Charter and post-World War II Canada by Peter M Neary( )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rehabilitating Canada's armed forces to civilian life following World War II was a massive undertaking. The Veterans Charter, the program devised by the federal government to do this, promised to provide "opportunity with security" and was one of the building blocks of the Canadian welfare state. This collection of essays by some of Canada's leading historians explores the Charter's origins, history, and benefits as well as highlighting its role in the development of the Canadian welfare state and postwar society." "The achievements of this generation of Canadian veterans are sometimes downplayed; this collection of essays puts their achievements on the historical record and pays tribute to their memory and accomplishments."--Jacket

White tie and decorations : Sir John and Lady Hope Simpson in Newfoundland, 1934-1936 by John Hope Simpson( )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir John Hope Simpson was a man of wide international experience and exceptional administrative ability. His correspondence is candid and direct - that of an insider. Quita's letters reveal a perceptive and inquisitive nature and a pervading social concern. Both write about their progressive, even utopian, ideas. They travelled extensively in the country, met a wide range of people, and recorded their experiences in letters that capture the essence of the time. Peter Neary's edition is based on the collection of Hope Simpson papers at Balliol College, Oxford. His selection from the Newfoundland correspondence is complemented in the book by maps and photographs. Neary's introduction lays the groundwork for an understanding of the letters and the milieu of the Hope Simpsons

Newfoundland in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries : essays in interpretation( Book )

12 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first comprehensive history of Newfoundland was published in 1793, but a centenary and a half passed before the first university course in the history of the island was offered there. During the past fifteen years there has been growing activity in the subject. This volume is the work of six scholars who have either studied or taught at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. Some have done both. The book has two broad aims. First, to point out the major themes of modern Newfoundland history currently being examined, and to offer a number of new interpretations of economic and political development in the last two centuries. Second, to supplement the standard works that are readily available to students. In some areas it provides additional details; in others, it bridges wide gaps. The themes considered include: an introduction to the writing of Newfoundland history; the transition from the purely maritime economy of the nineteenth century to the mixed oceanic and inland resource economy of the twentieth, and the difficulties this involved; the decline of the traditional cod fishery in the nineteenth century; Newfoundland's rejection of confederation in 1896; the limitations imposed by the fisheries agreements Britain negotiated with France and the United States; the consequences of the decision to reject confederation and diversify the local economy; the growth of the Fisherman's Protective Union; the political atmosphere of the 1920s; the party politics in the post-confederation period; and, finally, the collapse of Newfoundland's oldest industry, the saltfish trade, and the province's integration into the North American economy. This is a book intended for both regional specialists and general students of Canadian history. It provides a valuable resource about a province of rapidly growing importance

Alan Caswell Collier, relief stiff : an artist's letters from depression-era British Columbia by Alan Caswell Collier( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alan Caswell Collier was one of Canada's most admired and successful landscape painters, but during the Depression he worked alongside other single, unemployed men in government-run relief camps. Labouring for twenty cents a day, he detailed camp life and politics in letters to his fiancée and depicted fellow "relief stiffs" and the BC landscape in character sketches and paintings. Incisive and candid, his letters reveal a born contrarian with a strong sense of social superiority over his fellow "twenty centers." But his letters also offer a fresh perspective on the hopes and dreams of a beloved Ontario artist and of the generation who came of age at a time of economic upheaval and class conflict."--

Choked by red tape? : the political economy of wasteful trade barriers by Giovanni Maggi( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Red-tape barriers (RTBs) are an important source of trade costs, but have received little scholarly attention to date. Here we examine the economic-political determinants of RTBs and their effects on trade. Because of their wasteful nature, RTBs have very different implications from those of more traditional trade barriers. In particular, RTBs have important impacts on the extensive margin of trade, and respond in non-standard ways to changes in tariffs and natural trade costs. We argue that taking into account the endogenous response of RTBs is crucial for understanding the effects of tariff liberalization and globalization on trade and welfare
