Canadian Perspectives on Community Development
Excerpt

[This collective work] maps Canadian approaches to community organizing—what they look like in practice and the theory that underpins them. The aim is not to create an impression of a singular Canadian approach to community organizing, but rather to show that there are strong links and connections across this country that, when taken as a sum, are distinctly Canadian.

Essays in Honour of Sherry Olson
edition:eBook

Excerpt

Sherry Olson firmly believes that we can understand and explain the world. Indeed, more than a belief it is a responsibility.Disciplined, critical work to understand how we got to where we are now is how we build a better world. For Sherry, only continuous ethical engagement with real-world problems can possibly justify an intellectual’s privileges. In making sense of her long trajectory as both a teacher and a researcher, her life-long commitment to working with people of diverse backgrounds and skills to overcome problems has been far more important than any formal training. The scholar celebrated in these pages was decades in the making.

<i>Creative Theatre</i> by Roy Mitchell
Excerpt

This book […] is for those who can believe in a new kind of theatre arising out of our present one. It is for persons who are pledged neither to the theatre as it is, nor yet as it has been, but to the protean soul of the theatre which is as immortal as the soul of man and will take as many forms according to the necessities into which it is projected.
