Summary Book Review What Is Stephen Harper Reading? by Yann Martel:

Download or read book What Is Stephen Harper Reading? written by Yann Martel and published by Vintage Canada. This book was released on 2009-11-03 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “I know you’re very busy, Mr. Harper. We’re all busy. But every person has a space next to where they sleep, whether a patch of pavement or a fine bedside table. In that space, at night, a book can glow. And in those moments of docile wakefulness, when we begin to let go of the day, then is the perfect time to pick up a book and be someone else, somewhere else, for a few minutes, a few pages, before we fall asleep.” From the author of Life of Pi comes a literary correspondence — recommendations to Canada’s Prime Minister of great short books that will inspire and delight book lovers and book club readers across our nation. Every two weeks since April 16th, 2007, Yann Martel has mailed Stephen Harper a book along with a letter. These insightful, provocative letters detailing what he hopes the Prime Minister may take from the books — by such writers as Jane Austen, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Stephen Galloway — are collected here together. The one-sided correspondence (Mr. Harper’s office has only replied once) becomes a meditation on reading and writing and the necessity to allow ourselves to expand stillness in our lives, even if we’re not head of government.

Summary Book Review Reading between the Borderlines by Gillian Roberts:

Download or read book Reading between the Borderlines written by Gillian Roberts and published by McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP. This book was released on 2018-12-30 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Is Superman Canadian? Who decides, and what is at stake in such a question? How is the Underground Railroad commemorated differently in Canada and the United States, and can those differences be bridged? How can we acknowledge properly the Canadian labour behind Hollywood filmmaking, and what would that do to our sense of national cinema? Reading between the Borderlines grapples with these questions and others surrounding the production and consumption of literary, cinematic, musical, visual, and print culture across the Canada-US border. Discussing a range of popular as well as highbrow cultural forms, this collection investigates patterns of cross-border cultural exchange that become visible within a variety of genres, regardless of their place in any arbitrarily devised cultural hierarchy. The essays also consider the many interests served, compromised, or negated by the operations of the transnational economy, the movement of culture's "raw material" across nation-state borders in literal and conceptual terms, and the configuration of a material citizenship attributed to or negotiated around border-crossing cultural objects. Challenging the oversimplification of cultural products labelled either "Canadian" or "American," Reading between the Borderlines contends with the particularities and complications of North American cultural exchange, both historically and in the present.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When Canadian authors win prestigious literary prizes, from the Governor General's Literary Award to the Man Booker Prize, they are celebrated not only for their achievements, but also for contributing to this country's cultural capital. Discussions about culture, national identity, and citizenship are particularly complicated when the honorees are immigrants, like Michael Ondaatje, Carol Shields, or Rohinton Mistry. Then there is the case of Yann Martel, who is identified both as Canadian and as rootlessly cosmopolitan. How have these writers' identities been recalibrated in order to claim them as 'representative' Canadians? Prizing Literature is the first extended study of contemporary award winning Canadian literature and the ways in which we celebrate its authors. Gillian Roberts uses theories of hospitality to examine how prize-winning authors are variously received and honoured depending on their citizenship and the extent to which they represent 'Canadianness.' Prizing Literature sheds light on popular and media understandings of what it means to be part of a multicultural nation.

Download or read book 8 Days of Crisis on the Hill; Political Blip...or Stephen Harper's Revolution Derailed? written by Thomas W. Joseph and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2009 with total page 266 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Whew!! What a week that was as Canadians went from being the 'peaceable kingdom' talking about the need for cooperation and consultation to what many described as 'a full blown national crisis'. The Prime Minister and Conservative Government had turned an 'economic crisis' into a 'political crisis', then a 'constitutional crisis'. And if that wasn't enough of a week's work, the Prime Minister managed to also turn it into a 'crisis of national unity'. And some say Canadian politics and politicians are boring!!!!! Accusations of "traitor", "coup d'état", "illegitimate", "undemocratic"; "loss of confidence", "loss of trust", "socialist", "separatist", and "deals with the devil", reverberated across the floor of the House of Commons. Each of the 'crisis' that engulfed the Hill over those eight days had political consequences for those involved and for the parliamentary system. Stephen Harper may have survived to fight another day but in doing so he may have committed his most serious strategic error and will pay a heavy price for it over the next months and years. It is my contention that he is as much a strategic stumbler as a master strategist, and, that his long term goal to make the Conservative party Canada's 'natural governing party' and to move Canadian society to the right has been derailed.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Any look at Stephen Harper and the new Conservative party requires an examination of the evangelical Christian legacy coming out of both the Canadian Alliance and Progressive Conservative parties. In Stephen Harper: The Case for Collaborative Governance, award-winning journalist Lloyd Mackey discovers how Harper handles this legacy carefully, tracing the influence of the writings of such religious icons as C.S. Lewis and Malcolm Muggeridge on Harper's world view. In this critically acclaimed biography, Mackey examines the interface between faith and politics

Book excerpt: The story of a boy, a boat, and a tiger promises an adventure which some may find hard to believe. However, with the Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion companion to Yann Martel's novel, Life of Pi, readers begin to consider how to believe the unbelievable. While Yann Martel takes readers on a voyage of discovery, Bookclub-in-a-Box interprets his exploration: can miracles exist? what is the power of faith? what guarantees successful survival? Let Bookclub-in-a-Box take readers into Pi's mind, the influences in his life, his physical struggle to survive at sea and his spiritual struggle to understand his own faith and his place in the world. There are a great many deep concepts to reflect upon in this small fictional narrative, and Bookclub-in-a-Box presents them for thoughtful consideration.

Download or read book Retooling the Humanities written by Daniel Coleman and published by University of Alberta. This book was released on 2012-07-02 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Is market-driven research healthy? Responding to the language of “knowledge mobilization” that percolates through Canadian postsecondary education, the literary scholars who contributed these essays address the challenges that an intensified culture of research capitalism brings to the humanities in particular. Stakeholders in Canada's research infrastructure—university students, professors, and administrators; grant policy makers and bureaucrats; and the public who are the ultimate inheritors of such knowledge—are urged to examine a range of perspectives on the increasingly entrepreneurial university environment and its growing corporate culture.
