Postcolonialism by Robert J. C Young( Book )

95 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is quite unlike any other introduction to postcolonialism. Robert Young examines the political, social, and cultural after-effects of decolonization by presenting situations, experiences, and testimony rather than examining the abstract theory. He situates the debate in a wide cultural context discussing its importance as an historical condition, using examples such as the status of aboriginal people, of those dispossessed from their land, Algerian rai music, postcolonial feminism, and global social and ecological movements. Above all, Young argues that postcolonialism offers a political philosophy of activism that contests the current situation of global inequality, which in a new way continues the anti-colonial struggles of the past."--Jacket
Sites of governance : multilevel governance and policy making in Canada's big cities by Martin Horak( )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Policies forged by all levels of government affect the lives of urban residents. Contributors to this volume explore how intergovernmental relations shape urban policies and how various social forces are involved in--or excluded from--the policy process. Focusing on diverse policy fields including emergency planning, image-building, immigrant settlement, infrastructure, federal property, and urban Aboriginal policy, Sites of Governance presents detailed studies of the largest city in each of Canada's provinces. Drawing on extensive documentary research and hundreds of interviews, contributors offer rich, nuanced analyses and a wealth of policy cases, ranging from preparation for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics to the development of innovative immigrant settlement programming in Winnipeg. Dominant themes include the importance of resources and formal jurisdiction in multilevel policy making, and the struggle for influence between business interests and other social forces. Essential reading for anyone concerned with the quality of urban life in Canada, Sites of Governance offers important insights about how multilevel governance works in Canadian cities."--Publisher's website
Immigrant settlement policy in Canadian municipalities( )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on a great many in-depth interviews with government officials and front-line workers, contributors provide a comparative assessment of approaches to immigrant settlement in nineteen Canadian municipalities. This is complemented by a discussion of the federal government's role in this policy field, and by a comprehensive introduction and conclusion, which ground the book historically and thematically, synthesize its key findings, and provide recommendations for addressing the challenges related to intergovernmental cooperation, settlement service delivery, and overall immigrant outcomes. Individual chapters examine the mechanics of public policy-making but also tell a story about diverse and innovative approaches to immigrant settlement in Canada's towns and cities, about gaps and problems in the system, and about the ways in which governments and communities are working together to facilitate integration."--Pub. desc

Alienation and freedom by Frantz Fanon( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in French and English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alienation and Freedom collects together previously unpublished works comprising around half of his entire output - which were previously inaccessible or thought to be lost. This book introduces audiences to a new Fanon, a more personal Fanon and one whose literary and psychiatric works, in particular, take centre stage. These writings provide new depth and complexity to our understanding of Fanon's entire oeuvre revealing more of his powerful thinking about identity, race and activism which remain remarkably prescient. Shedding new light on the work of a major 20th-century philosopher, this disruptive and moving work will shape how we look at the world." --Jacket flap
Stretching the federation : the art of the state in Canada by Robert A Young( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Strong movements are afoot in Canada to decentralize the design and delivery of many programs, and to clarify federal and provincial responsibilities. This volume presents contributions from practitioners and observers of this trend. It includes sweeping papers on the comparative evolution of federations, and on the question of whether decentralization is inherently conservative. There are also chapters on decentralization in health care, possible reallocations of programs and tax revenues, the extent of overlap and duplication in service delivery, and fiscal decentralization. Each paper is followed by a commentary."--Jacket

Part II charts the period between 1980 and 2000, during which time he released his seminal monograph Outland. Part III covers the years 2000-2013, when Ballen achieved global recognition and his work began to veer away from portraiture altogether. Finally, in Part IV, Ballen reflects on his career
