Explanation of the Book:

Most people know that in 1962 Saskatchewan became the "birthplace of Medicare" and that the rest of Canada soon followed. However, few people today remember the political fight that the people of Saskatchewan and its doctors waged in opposition to their government's plan. In Setting the Record Straight, the events of that year are vividly remembered by one who not only witnessed it, but was an active participant. In the 50th anniversary of Saskatchewan's Medical Care Insurance Act, Dr. Noel Doig presents for the first time what the introduction of Medicare meant from the perspective of the doctors and patients of Saskatchewan at the time. With rich storytelling detail, and punctuated by the witty political cartoons of the late Saskatoon Star Phoenix/Regina Leader Post artist Ed Sebestyen, Doig recounts in dramatic fashion the story of how politics trumped principle. Setting the Record the Record Straight is written to ensure that the physicians' untold story of the Medicare crisis is accurately recorded for the posterity by one who made a promise to his colleagues that he would do so in their memory. It is not intended to present prescriptions for the present or future. It is Doig's life legacy: the culmination of a career devoted to his patients and to advocacy for the best medical care systems and practices for them - regardless of the implications for their doctors, or for politicians. Experience teaches us to ignore history at our peril as it has a tendency to repeat itself. In that context, this memoir is an important and timely piece of Saskatchewan and Canadian medical and social history. The lessons of the history are particularly important now, as the future of Canada's medical system is being hotly debated. Health care is consistently a top-of-mind issue for Canadians in every political poll. Additionally, the relevance of these issues extends southward as Americans continue to scrutinize their health care system and versions of Medicare, including Canada's. It is a dominant domestic issue of the upcoming 2012 Presidential election campaign, and will undoubtedly influence voters' choice of the next U.S. President.

Explanation of the Book:

The past two decades, beginning with the public's use of the Internet in 1994 and continuing with the emergence of notebook computers, smart phones, tablets, e-readers, blogs, wikis, Twitter, and social media, has seen the most rapid evolution of communications and its impact on every aspect of society from commerce to education and from culture to government. Digital media are impacting every aspect of our lives, but they are more in control of us than we are of them. The ideas of Marshall McLuhan, scholar, social critic, literary critic, poet, and artist, can provide the kind of guidance we need, but sadly he is misunderstood by most. This book posits that McLuhan holds the key to our understanding of the new digital media. Marshall McLuhan was one of the most influential thinkers of the twentieth century. This book will set the record straight and provide a guide to and insights into the thinking of Marshall McLuhan. This book is the medium and Marshall is the message.

Editor: NYU Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

In the wake of the civil rights movement, a great divide has opened up between African American and Jewish communities. What was historically a harmonious and supportive relationship has suffered from a powerful and oft-repeated legend, that Jews controlled and masterminded the slave trade and owned slaves on a large scale, well in excess of their own proportion in the population. In this groundbreaking book, likely to stand as the definitive word on the subject, Eli Faber cuts through this cloud of mystification to recapture an important chapter in both Jewish and African diasporic history. Focusing on the British empire, Faber assesses the extent to which Jews participated in the institution of slavery through investment in slave trading companies, ownership of slave ships, commercial activity as merchants who sold slaves upon their arrival from Africa, and direct ownership of slaves. His unprecedented original research utilizing shipping and tax records, stock-transfer ledgers, censuses, slave registers, and synagogue records reveals, once and for all, the minimal nature of Jews' involvement in the subjugation of Africans in the Americas. A crucial corrective, Jews, Slaves, and the Slave Trade lays to rest one of the most contested historical controversies of our time.

Explanation of the Book:

Seven years in the making, this is the complete account of the career, music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix, based entirely on first-person recollections and new, exclusive photographs and documents. Since his death in 1970 at the age of twenty-seven, Jimi Hendrix has been mythologised as a risk-taker who lost it all - and not the serious musician whose sole desire was to play and write great music. Now, authors John McDermott and Eddie Kramer (Jimi's long-time producer) set the record straight. From Jimi's Greenwich Village days to his Electric Ladybird nights, they chronicle the innovative techniques of a pioneer who painstakingly worked to perfect the sounds others couldn't even imagine, despite being modest to the point of shyness about his own singing talent. Key figures in his inner circle such as his manager Chas Chandler shed light on Jimi's whirlwind three-and-a-half year career. Hendrix: Setting the Record Straight is the definitive biography of a legend whose recording career transformed the essence of rock and roll.
