Northern visions : new perspectives on the North in Canadian history by Kerry M Abel( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canadian nationalists in the nineteenth century argued that the North, with its extremes of winter, distance, and isolation, defined the country's essential character and gave its population the resolve and determination necessary to create a prosperous nation. Promoters lauded its enormous economic potential while cursing its vast expanses and dangerous winters. Novelists, poets, and painters were awestruck by its boundless reaches and environmental diversity. Today, the North retains its complex place within the Canadian psyche, at once celebrated as the very essence of the nation, while being largely ignored by a population that clings to the Canada-USA border. Many have debated its significance in Canada's history, and have attempted to bring the region to the attention of the rest of the country by carving out a niche for northern history within the academic curriculum. The current generation of historians has a more ambitious and complex agenda. While they are interested in the North for its own sake, they also firmly believe that the study and teaching of Canadian history as a whole does not currently recognize the North's importance to the development of the nation." "Northern Visions, by bringing together a variety of perspectives on the history of the North in Canada, raises new questions and challenges existing ideas. Provocative in their interpretations, these essays do not point to a single path forward in the writing of regional history, but instead suggest that it is time to rethink some of our basic conceptions - and misconceptions - about the North. Northern Visions calls upon historians of both region and nation to broaden their range of research, to connect regional developments to activities in other northern regions of the world, and to think much more widely about the place of the North in the understanding of Canada's past."--Jacket

To use their own description, in these pages Canadian historians Ken Coates and Bill Morrison "explore the realities of the experience of northern workers" of the time. They aim to record the uncommon efforts of the common people so often left out of history texts, and they incorporate the workers' own recollections and documents as well as the official records scattered throughout archives in the North and in the national capitals of Canada and the United States. Thus Working the North captures an intimacy and level of anecdotal experience rarely found in scholarly studies of the period

"Tales of gruesome murders - described in folktales such as those about Sergeant Preston and the Mad Trapper of Rat River and in poems such as Robert Service's The Shooting of Dan McGrew - are resonant aspects of the Yukon's popular lore.

What to consider if you're considering college : new rules for education and employment by Kenneth Coates( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Going to college used to be a passport to future success, but that's no longer the case. For some students, it's still a good choice that leads to a successful career after graduation, but for many their degrees are worthless pieces of paper. Choose the wrong program and graduation is more likely to lead to disillusionment and debt than to a steady paycheck. Yet parents, guidance counsellors, and politicians still push higher education as if it's the only option for building a secure future. In this book Ken S. Coates and Bill Morrison set out to explore the many educational opportunities and career paths open to high-school students and those in their twenties. This book is designed to help Americans in their teens and twenties decide whether to pursue a degree, enrol [sic] for skills training, or investigate one of the many other options that are available."--Page [4] cover
East Asia-Arctic relations : boundary, security and international politics by Kimie Hara( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To the present, Arctic and East Asian nations have not engaged in extensive discussions about competing and complementary Arctic activities and responsibilities. This volume is an outcome of an international collaborative project, which launched a focused and detailed conversation about the historic, contemporary and future dimensions of East Asian countries' relationships and interests in the Arctic. Bringing together leading experts from Japan, China, South Korea, Russia, the United States and Canada, the volume draws scholarly and policy-making attention to East Asia's growing interests in the Far North and identifies political, economic, legal and security connections between East Asia and the Arctic." --
