Edited By Roces, Mina and Edwards, Louise
This book explores the ways in which dress has been influential in the political agendas and self-representations of politicians in a variety of regimes from democratic to authoritarian. Arguing that dress is part of 'hard core' politics, it shows how dress has been crucial to the constructions of nationhood and national identities in both Asia and the Americas. Since dress has been a marker of identity and status, chapters engage with the gendering of the politics of dress, discussing how women have become bearers and wearers of 'national tradition' and how men and women's dress reflect their political positions in the nation-state. It examines the magical power of cloth, the meanings of batik and design, the holy status of uncut cloth versus cut cloth, and the quaint combination of non-Western with Western attire. This collection of pioneering essays fills a vacuum in the largely Eurocentric field of dress studies, demanding that attention be paid to Asia and the Americas as major sites of vestimentary creativity. 276pp.

Edited By Kopelman,Loretta M. And De Ville,Kenneth A.
This title offers a detailed discussion of recent supreme court rulings that have had an impact on the contemporary debate in the US and elsewhere over physician-assisted suicide. Two rulings by the US Supreme Court have altered the contemporary debate on physician-assisted suicide: Washington versus Glucksberg (1997) and Vacco versus Quill (1997). In these cases, the Supreme Court ruled that state laws could prohibit assisted suicide and, therefore, physician-assisted suicide. These rulings mark the apex of over two decades of unprecedented litigation regarding end-of-life care and signal the beginning of a new clinical, ethical, and legal debate over the extent of an individual's rights to control the timing, manner, and means of his/her death. The debate over suicide and assisting suicide is ancient and contentious and intertwined with questions about the permissibility of voluntary active euthanasia or mercy killing. Responses to these issues can be divided into those who defend physician-assisted suicide and many of these other activities and those who object. But those who object may do so on principle grounds in that they regard these activities as wrong in all cases, or non-principled, in that they believe there are more prudent, less disruptive or more efficient policies. This book examines these responses and looks at the assumptions underlying them. Several of these authors offer the view that a culture gap exists, deeper and wider than that in the abortion debate.235pp. N.B.Slight label residue to base of d/j spine.

Hemstad, Betty Vos
Travellers in the Boundary Waters find much to draw the eye, not least of which is a profusion of wildflowers at every turn. For the unstudied hiker, what better way to meet these plants than with a friend to guide your vision and your understanding. Betty Vos Hemstad, a summer resident off the Gunflint Trail, is just the woman for the job. Her unique collection of stunning, full-colour photographs, taken over a twenty-year span, offers views of 120 regional flowers shown throughout their life cycles, from bud to flower to seedpod. Some views take you into the heart of the plant, revealing beauty in patterns and textures not seen with the naked eye. Hemstad's practical and personable descriptions spotlight each plant's features and offer titbits about common names, and favourite locations. This beautiful guide is organised by season and then by colour, making it the perfect companion for a walk in the woods, whether on the trail or far from it. And when you have learned all Hemstad has to teach, she offers a Wildflower Challenge - twenty 'neighbours' photographed in one season or another for you to identify and capture with your own camera. Come for a walk in the woods. You will be surprised at what treasures you find. 271pp.
