Maghreb, Migration und Mittelmeer

NZZ Libro ein Imprint der Schwabe Verlagsgruppe AG


Die fünf Maghrebstaaten bilden eine Art doppelten Schutzwall für die südlichen Grenzen Europas: in der Sahara und an der Mittelmeerküste. Sie verhindern zum einen die massenhafte Auswanderung ihrer eigenen Bürger nach Europa, zum anderen blockieren sie die Migration von auswanderungswilligen Menschen aus Ländern südlich der Sahara. Europa ist auf eine enge Zusammenarbeit mit den Maghrebstaaten zur Steuerung der irregulären Migration angewiesen. Diese ist aber politisch umstritten und birgt moralische Dilemmata. Der Autor, der den Maghreb seit 30 Jahren intensiv bereist, spricht mit Migranten und Schleppern. Auch die Sicht Europas bringt er zur Sprache. Er geht das Thema nüchtern an und analysiert die wichtigsten Triebkräfte bei der Migration aus dem und via den Maghreb.

Exploring intergenerational trauma in Indigenous communities — and strategies for healing — with provocative prose and an empathetic approach

Indigenous peoples have shockingly higher rates of addiction, depression, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions than other North Americans. According to the Aboriginal Healing Foundation, these are a result of intergenerational trauma: the unresolved terror, anger, fear, and grief created in Indigenous communities by the painful experiences of colonialism, passed down from generation to generation.

How are we to turn this desperate tide? With passionate argumentation and chillingly clear prose, author and educator Suzanne Methot uses her own and others’ stories to trace the roots of colonial trauma and the mechanisms by which trauma has become intergenerational, and she explores the Indigenous ways of knowing that can lead us toward change.

“Powerful . . . A deeply empathetic and inspiring work with insights of value to anyone struggling to overcome personal or communal trauma.” — Library Journal

“This book is accessible, relatable, and full of storytelling about real people. It deeply resonates with me as a traditional counsellor, educator, and Indigenous person. Suzanne Methot, a brave Nehiyaw writer and community helper, takes up the challenges of logically explaining a child’s traumatized brain and body and how these impacts continue into adulthood. Methot also explores Indigenous health-care models, proving that Indigenous values provide solutions. This book uncovers the critical need for legislation that moves from creating ‘a renewed relationship’ with Indigenous peoples to creating real structural change.” — Dr. Cyndy Baskin, Mi’kmaq Nation, Associate Professor, School of Social Work, Ryerson University

According to Doyle

Flanker Press


Before he walked onto the political stage, Norman Doyle grew up in Avondale, Conception Bay, in a family of nine children. He followed in his father’s footsteps and made his way to New York City, where he found employment as an ironworker on the site of the World Trade Center. Later, he returned home, where his political aspirations took root. Inspired by the fiery speeches of Brian Peckford, and with the encouragement of the local ironworkers, Norman threw his hat in the ring and was elected to the House of Assembly in 1979. "Norm,” as he is affectionately known in his home province, left provincial politics in 1993 and later joined the House of Commons when he was elected as the Member of Parliament for St. John’s East in 1997. He was appointed to the Senate of Canada in 2012, the latest of many achievements in a long and illustrious political career. During his years on Confederation Hill (St. John’s) and Parliament Hill (Ottawa), Norm worked alongside other political heavyweights in the Progressive Conservative Party, and later the Conservative Party of Canada: Brian Peckford, Gerry Ottenheimer, Bill Marshall, Danny Williams, Loyola Hearn, Peter MacKay, Joe Clark, Jean Charest, and Stephen Harper. In According to Doyle, Senator Norman Doyle gives us a front-row seat to some of the greatest political battles ever fought for province and country—some which pitted Newfoundland and Labrador against Canada and put him in the difficult position of having to serve two masters at the same time.

---

Norman Doyle was born in Avondale, a small community in Conception Bay about fifty kilometres from St. John’s. After working in construction and business, he entered into a career spanning nearly three decades in both federal and provincial politics. He was elected to the House of Assembly in Newfoundland and Labrador in 1979 and re-elected in 1982, 1985, and 1989. He served as a cabinet minister in Municipal Affairs, Transportation, and Labour until he left the provincial House in 1993.

Norman entered federal politics in 1997 as the Member of Parliament for St. John’s East. During his twelve years in the House of Commons, he served as the Progressive Conservative Party whip, chair of the national caucus for both the PC Party and Conservative Party, and also chair of the national Immigration committee. He was also elected four times at the federal level, racking up eight back-to-back wins in both federal and provincial politics.

Norman Doyle was appointed to the Senate of Canada in 2012. He is a member of the Internal Economy Budget and Administration Committee and the Transport and Communications Committee.

He currently resides in St. John’s and is married to Isabelle (née Hannifan). They have two sons, Deon (Denise) and Randy (Joy), and two grandsons, Thomas Randell and William Norman.

Erben des Schweigens

Neufeld Verlag


Wer bin ich? Woher komme ich? Was bestimmt mein Leben? Grundsätzliche Fragen brechen auf, als die selbstständige Grafikerin Jael Winterstejn bei einem Sommerspaziergang im Rheintal zufällig einen Grabstein entdeckt, auf dem ihr Name steht. Die Suche nach der Geschichte, die sich hinter diesem Grabstein verbirgt, wird nicht nur zu einer Reise in die Vergangenheit ihrer eigenen Familie, sondern rührt an andere dunkle Geheimnisse. Fragen von Schuld und Vergebung, Rache und Versöhnung werden plötzlich ganz aktuell und persönlich. Sie führt zu Begegnungen in Prag und im ehemaligen Sudetenland. Dort trifft Jael den sympathischen Tschechen Radek. Eine lebendig erzählte, packende Geschichte, in der das Lebensgefühl mehrerer Generationen aufeinander trifft. Eine ungewöhnliche Auseinandersetzung mit der Zeitgeschichte: deutsch-jüdische und deutsch-tschechische Vergangenheiten, Krieg und Vertreibung. Eine aktuelle Geschichte, die die Frage aufwirft, wie Beziehungen gelingen können und wie die Verstrickung in Schuld überwunden werden kann.

Controlling Knowledge

Athabasca University Press


Digital communications technology has immeasurably enhanced our capacity to store, retrieve, and exchange information. But who controls our access to information, and who decides what others have a right to know about us? In Controlling Knowledge, author Lorna Stefanick offers a thought-provoking and user-friendly overview of the regulatory regime that currently governs freedom of information and the protection of privacy.Aiming to clarify rather than mystify, Stefanick outlines the history and application of FOIP legislation, with special focus on how these laws affect the individual. To illustrate the impact of FOIP, she examines the notion of informed consent, looks at concerns about surveillance in the digital age, and explores the sometimes insidious influence of Facebook. Specialists in public policy and public administration, information technology, communications, law, criminal justice, sociology, and health care will find much here that bears directly on their work, while students and general readers will welcome the book's down-to-earth language and accessible style.

Intended to serve as a "citizen's guide," Controlling Knowledge is a vital resource for anyone seeking to understand how freedom of information and privacy protection are legally defined and how this legislation is shaping our individual rights as citizens of the information age.

Fairly Equal

Second Story Press | A Feminist History Society Book


An eyewitness account of the revolution in women’s rights under the law.

Lawyer, activist, and former Chatelaine legal columnist Linda Silver Dranoff details her own trailblazing journey from a traditional 1950s childhood to the battlegrounds of the courts of law and the halls of power where she and a generation of women lawyers, supporting a larger feminist movement, championed the rights of Canadian women and families. Through a combination of memoir and social history, Dranoff brings to life the struggles around family law, pay and employment equity, violence against women, abortion rights, childcare, pension rights, political engagement, public policy, and access to legal justice.

From backroom battles to public and private protest, the stories are inspiring. Fairly Equal reminds us of the importance of remaining vigilant about our rights. Knowing what Dranoff’s generation of women lawyers and activists achieved, and how easily it can be taken away, we are encouraged in sisterhood and solidarity to ensure that the many hard-won gains of the feminist movement are maintained and expanded for the women who follow.
