Many Canadian women fiction writers have become justifiably famous. But what about women who have written non-fiction? When Anne Innis Dagg set out on a personal quest to make such non-fiction authors better known, she expected to find just a few dozen. To her delight, she unearthed 473 writers who have produced over 674 books. These women describe not only their country and its inhabitants, but a remarkable variety of other subjects: from the story of transportation to the legacy of Canadian missionary activity around the world. While most of the writers lived in what is now Canada, other authors were British or American travellers who visited Canada throughout the years and reported on what they found here. This compendium has brief biographies of all these women, short descriptions of their books, and a comprehensive index of their books’ subject matters. The Feminine Gaze: A Canadian Compendium of Non-Fiction Women Authors and Their Books, 1836-1945 will be an invaluable research tool for women’s studies and for all who wish to supplement the male gaze on Canada’s past.

2009 Retailer's Choice Award winner!For Jon and Erin Bennett, the world seems to be spinning dangerously out of control. A new dictator is rising in Iraq. China is making threatening new moves toward Taiwan. North Korean forces appear ready to strike south. Israel is feverishly trying to complete the Third Temple. Oil prices are surging. And in the wake of an horrific war in the Middle East, President James MacPherson's second term is coming to an end. Now the battle to succeed him is heating up into one of the most fiercely contested presidential elections in American history, and the Bennetts realize the stakes could not be higher. Who will lead a bitterly divided country over the next four years? What can the U.S. do to shape the new world order? And just what role—if any—does the U.S. play in the last days? As the presidential campaign narrows into a dead heat, the Secret Service learns of a catastrophic plot to assassinate one of the candidates—but which one, and can the terrorists be stopped in time?
This book demonstrates the strong likelihood Israel’s intelligence service, the Mossad, collaborated alongside the CIA and the Meyer Lansky Crime Syndicate in the JFK assassination because President Kennedy was working to prevent Israel from acquiring nuclear weapons of mass destruction, a fact that remained a dark secret for decades.
Written by a colleague: Alpha is a tremendous worldwide hit, yet most groups deploying it will - at times - be somewhat disappointed by the amount of resulting fruit. Holy Trinity Brompton readily acknowledges this. Even groups faithfully adhering to the official advice that has so far been published can still find many non-Christian attendees disappearing during, or shortly after, the program. Proven Alpha Course Tips identifies several previously unrecognized causes of this problem and has been created to help every group using Alpha to see much greater fruit. "Very well written and laid out.... Very well researched and extremely informative. It''s positive and a manageable size.... It''s a ''must read''" - Phil Phillimore, Alpha course leader Drawing on profound knowledge of the Alpha resources and interviews with Nicky Gumbel, John Fairhaven has created a most practical work. Proven Alpha Course Tips will encourage and excite readers with its unique insights. In view of the substantial amount of time and effort spent implementing each program - and on getting unbelievers to attend them - this book represents a very wise acquisition. Written by someone who cares passionately about his subject, the material in this new volume will be of great benefit to every individual in a group running any type of Alpha course.
