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

12 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 908 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 )

20 editions published between 1972 and 2003 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 : the prism of unity, 1932-1939 by H. Blair Neatby( )

9 editions published between 1976 and 2017 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning the story in 1932, the book treats the depression years when King was first in Opposition and then the years after 1935 when he was once again Prime Minister; it is a masterly analysis of how one of the most enigmatic figures in Canadian history made shrewd and critical political decisions. Attention is paid in turn to his clearly successful tactics as Leader of the Opposition; the election campaign of 1935; a wide range of his domestic policies, including those on unemployment, inflation, relief, and trade; and to a series of international crises - the Ethiopian crisis, the Spanish Civil War, Anschluss, and Munich - that culminated in the Second World War
