The last French and Indian war : an inquiry into a safe-conduct issued in 1760 that acquired the value of a treaty in 1990 by Denis Vaugeois( )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 1,615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1760, ten months after the fall of Quebec City, British forces under the command of General Amherst were converging on Montreal, which would capitulate to the British by early September. Somehow Amherst had managed to break the complex network of French-Native alliances on which New France relied. Vaugeois sets the context by reviewing the important events of the Seven Years War and then examines the train of events between the fall of Quebec and that of Montreal in detail
Judging homosexuals : a history of gay persecution in Quebec and France by Patrice Corriveau( )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2004, the first same-sex couple legally married in Quebec. How did homosexuality - an act that had for centuries been defined as abominable and criminal - come to be sanctioned by law? Judging Homosexuals finds answers in a comparative analysis of gay persecution in France and Quebec, places that share a common culture but have diverging legal traditions. In both settings, Patrice Corriveau explores how various groups - family and clergy, doctors and jurists - tried to manage people who were defined in turn as sinners, as criminals, as inverts, and as citizens to be protected by law. By bringing to light the various discourses that have over time supported the control and persecution of individual homoerotic behaviour in France and Quebec, this book makes the case that when it came to managing sexuality, the law helped construct the crime"--Unedited summary from book cover

Champlain : the birth of French America by Raymonde Litalien( )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 1,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Samuel de Champlain is one of Canada's most significant historical figures. Both tenacious and knowledgeable, he sustained the fledgling settlement at Quebec, orchestrated alliances with Aboriginal groups, explored and mapped much of Atlantic Canada and the St. Lawrence Valley, and struggled to gain support for New France." "In Champlain: The Birth of French America historians, ethnologists, archaeologists, archivists, and researchers from France, Italy, and Canada revisit Champlain's enormous contributions and unique role in history, offering new insights and raising new questions about the "father of New France." Illustrated, including the thirty-two maps attributed to Champlain as well as documents, a selection of his drawings, and illustrations of rare artifacts, Champlain is a source of information for anyone who wants to understand New France and the origins of Canada."--Jacket

Two Mediterranean worlds : diverging paths of globalization and autonomy by Yassine Essid( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why are globalizing processes unevenly distributed between poor and wealthy countries? What effect do these disparities have on the lives of ordinary people? The contributors to this volume find answers to these questions in the Mediterranean, a region divided between the wealthier nations of the north shore and their poorer neighbours to the south. The divergent histories, economies, cultural and linguistic backgrounds, education systems, and political structures of these two regions lead to explanations not only for uneven globalization but also for the wave of demonstrations that have sparked unrest in North Africa and the Near East

Who is Bob_34? : investigating child cyberpornography by Patrice Corriveau( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who Is Bob_34? sheds light on the clandestine world of online child pornography and pedophilia. What exactly do we know about these crimes? Who produces child cyberpornography? Who distributes it? Who consumes it? And how do they meet? Can we use profiling to identify pedophiles? By surveying the scholarship on the topic and obtaining original empirical data through their infiltration of child-porn user groups, Francis Fortin and Patrice Corriveau address these questions and more, opening a window on a contemporary phenomenon that is much more complex than media accounts and commissioned reports suggest."--
Sex work : rethinking the job, respecting the workers by Colette Parent( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early twentieth century, abolitionists sought to stamp out sex work by penalizing all involved. In the generation that followed, neo-abolitionists looked at the sex industry from a feminist perspective, claiming that workers were victims caught in a patriarchal matrix. Yet both groups agreed that the industry was a destructive and corrupting force that should be eliminated. In this radical volume, five academics and activists present their vision of prostitution as work through chapters that explore the nature of the sex industry, the legal framework that seeks to control it, historical debates over its existence, the spectre of human trafficking, and community-based activism. The authors not only reclaim the place of sex workers in discussions of their lives and work but also oppose discourses that position sex workers as merely victims without agency."--Page 4 of cover

Breaking News? : Politics, Journalism, and Infotainment on Quebec Television by Frédérick Bastien( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the thousand-channel universe, politicians must find innovative ways to reach citizens on television. The rise of programming that blends information with entertainment--infotainment--on Canadian television, especially in Quebec, has provided an opportunity for today's politicians to use it to their advantage. But their appearances on these programs also fuel concerns regarding the declining authority of journalism in the public sphere. Breaking News? traces the development of infotainment and exposes the impact of these kinds of programs on modern political communication. Frédérick Bastien questions if infotainment trivializes political discourse and lacks gravitas when dealing with weighty subjects, and if it will come to replace hard news programming. And why, although journalists may criticize politicians' appearances on these programs, they themselves choose to appear on them regardless. This book lays out the implications of infotainment for politicians who must adjust to this form of media, for citizens who can't rely on the codes of ethics that have conventionally guided the production of news programs, and for journalists who must reassert their unique role in democratic society. He argues that, ultimately, infotainment makes a positive contribution to democratic life by piquing the audience's interest in public affairs and motivating them to pay more attention to political news in general."--
Wages for housework : a history of an international feminist movement, 1972-77 by Louise Toupin( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this first-ever international history of the divisive and influential feminist movement Wages for Housework, Louise Toupin draws on extensive archival research and interviews with the movement's founders and activists from Italy, England, Germany, Switzerland, the United States, and Canada. Featuring previously unpublished conversations with Silvia Federici and Mariarosa Dalla Costa, the book highlights the power and originality of the movement, detailing its theoretical and organizational innovations around the multifaceted and unrecognized forms of labour performed largely by women. Challenging both classic Marxist theory and the mainstream women's movement, Wages for Housework organized in the 1970s around the idea that domestic or "reproductive" labour is as crucial for the survival of the capitalist system as more typically male "productive" labour, and is therefore a central site of not only feminist but also anti-capitalist struggle. Its activists demanded the wage as a way of insisting that housework's value be recognized. These ideas are still hotly debated around the world today. Wages for Housework is a major contribution to the history of feminist and anti-capitalist movements, and a provocative intervention into contemporary conversations about theory, tactics, and strategy for confronting the changing nature of work, cultural norms, and the gendered labour market."--
