Creating Carleton : the shaping of a university by H. Blair Neatby( )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation They analyse how Carleton University tried to adjust to the changing social values of the 1960s, describing how the administration tried to come to terms with financial constraint, the professors tried to shift their emphasis from teaching to research while fretting about job security, and the students challenged the traditional authority of university officials and professors in an effort to become fee-paying clients rather than pupils. Over and above these changes were attempts to come to grips with individual rights and the changing status of women. Creating Carleton is not only the story of how Carleton came to terms with these changes but a case study of the transformation of higher education in Ontario and in North America

The politics of chaos; Canada in the thirties by H. Blair Neatby( Book )

"What did it mean to be a Canadian in the 1930's? Overshadowing every aspect of life was the impact of the great depression which began with the stock market crash of 1929. No one who lived through the decade that followed emerged unscathed, and for many it proved to be a grim battle for survival -- to keep the family clothed and fed, and eventually to have to submit to the degrading experience of going on relief. But to survive was not enough: men on relief wanted to live in a world in which social assistance would no longer be necessary. They demanded action, political action. So the thirties saw the emergence of new concepts of the economic role of government, the creation of new radical parties, and the appearance of new types of political leaders. This book describes the variety of responses to the problems of that era. It is a study of politics, because politics dominated all discussions. It is biographical, not merely because Canadfian politicians of the 1930's were colourful characters, but also because their activities illustrate the diversity of responses to the crises of that decade. Some of the problems these men grappled with are still with us, and in many ways the decade marks the beginnings of modern Canada. Therefore a study of the 1930's helps us to understand some of the social issues that continue to perplex us today, in effect it is an introduction to the Canada of our times. Book jacket."--Jacket

William Lyon Mackenzie King by Robert MacGregor Dawson( Book )

This second volume of the official biography of Mackenzie King (the first, written by R. MacG. Dawson, was published in 1958) covers the years 1924 to 1932. At the opening of this period, King was still an inexperienced and untried leader but the next few years were to test his qualities as he dealt with the concessions and compromises necessary in governing with an unstable majority and finally emerged the winner from the complicated chess games of parliamentary sessions. The Liberal success in the election of 1926 returned to office a Prime Minister with confidence in his own judgment and more inclined to hold firm to his own opinions against opposition from his colleagues or his party. After this election and the outcome of that in 1930, which handed over to the Conservatives the problems of the depression, the myth of King's political infallibility continued to grow. But a less able man would have been less lucky. As this book shows, King was a consummate party leader, with an unusual sensitivity to political danger and an unusual capacity to learn from his mistakes. In the years 1924 to 1932 a number of familiar Canadian issues had to be dealt with: freight rates on land and sea, the debate between a tariff for protection, the problems of the Maritime Provinces, the natural resources of the Prairie Provinces, old age pensions, the St. Lawrence Waterway, immigration. There were also other more striking incidents, which the author chronicles with verve and style: the customs scandal of 1926, the heady pleasures of the years of prosperity and the dismal frustrations of the years of depression, the election of 1930, the Beauharnois sensation. Throughout skilful use is made of the public records of these years, of the King papers, and the copious pages of King's own daily diary of his political problems, his conversations with colleagues and diplomats, his worries and frustrations over difficult decisions, his own aims and ideals. Over these years King developed and strengthened his convictions about the over-riding concern of all Canadian political leaders, national unity. Only a proper estimate of what was desirable, what was necessary, and what was impossible could guide in the working out of policies that would be tolerable by the whole of Canada, and it was, of course, King's firm belief and the guiding principle of his political life that the cause of national unity was best served by the cause of Liberalism, since that party above all represented the major sections or groups in Canada and alone could effect a satisfactory compromise among them. This book, brilliant and effective in conception and execution, is a study of political leadership in a divided nation, a nation which even in calmer times is proverbially difficult to govern. It is also a revealing and convincing study of a complex man whose drab public image concealed unsuspected eccentricities
