  • "Suffering from a sense of injustice": Children's Activism in Liberal
           State Formation at the Saint John Boys Industrial Home, 1927-1932
    • Abstract: POORHOUSE TOMMY was the son of an idle and intemperate father who had been arrested several times for drunkenness and beating Tom's mother. The father deserted his family in 1920, leaving Tom's mother unable to provide for her son and four daughters. By 1926, Tom's mother was in the local almshouse with some of the children, but Tom appears to have been entirely homeless. In the summer of that year, 11-years-old Poorhouse Tommy found himself sentenced to the Boys' Industrial Home at Saint John for a period not to exceed five years. Tom had been found guilty of "being a neglected child under New Brunswick's Children's Protection Act."1To the class of modern, professionalized child welfare workers that emerged in the ...

  • Sportives de haut niveau, mais à quel prix ' Le cas des enseignantes
           d'éducation physique et sportive en France, de 1940 à 1970
    • Abstract: EN 1975, LA LOI no 75-988 du 29 octobre, dite loi Mazeaud, du nom du ministre de la Jeunesse et des Sports, institue en France le statut de sportif de « haut niveau ». Ce statut fait suite à une série de mesures et de réflexions qui, depuis les années 1950, visent l'émergence d'une élite sportive compétitive au plus haut niveau international1. Il apparaît à une époque où différents modèles d'encadrement de l'élite sportive coexistent en France comme au niveau international – avec l'amateurisme strict d'un côté, le modèle d'un sport d'État à l'image des pays de l'Est de l'autre et, enfin, le professionnalisme. Avant la mise en place de ce dispositif d'encadrement spécifique dans le paysage international, les élites ... Read More

  • Introduction: The Historical Borderlands of Health and Mobility
    • Abstract: RECENT MASS MIGRATIONS, fueled by nation-state instability, war, environmental degradation, and staggering global disparities in wealth, have pushed issues of border control and immigration to the top of international concerns. After two generations of forging larger, supranational institutions and promoting freer trade and movement of labour, it would appear that the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards greater insularity, protectionism, and xenophobia. Political borders—physical walls even—have loomed large in the rhetoric and reality of contemporary political life. Although economic self-determination and protection from terrorism have fueled much of the political rhetoric, the ... Read More

  • Des morts sur la Miramichi: réactions de la population à l'arrivée
           d'immigrants malades au Nouveau-Brunswick au milieu du XIXe siècle
    • Abstract: L'ARRIVÉE D'IMMIGRANTS en très mauvaise santé dans les grands ports du Canada a suscité beaucoup d'intérêt chez les historiens, qui ont contribué à une abondante historiographie internationale sur la quarantaine et la sécurité des frontières. À cause des terribles épidémies en série arrivées avec les immigrants au milieu du XIXe siècle, cette période a été particulièrement bien étudiée, l'épidémie de choléra de 1832 et celle de typhus de 1847 se trouvant désormais au rang des événements majeurs dans la plupart des synthèses d'histoire du Canada. Les historiens qui se sont penchés sur les épidémies du milieu du siècle ont eu tendance à aborder leur sujet à partir de trois angles. Premièrement, la nature ... Read More

  • Public Health at the Zimbabwean Border: Medicalizing Migrants and
           Contesting Colonial Institutions, 1890-1960
    • Abstract: ON OCTOBER 8, 1946, the Chief Health Officer for Southern Rhodesia wrote to the Director of Medical Services in Zomba, Nyasaland, regretting to report the arrival of a "further case" of smallpox at Mtoko (Mutoko), through the Southern Rhodesia-Portuguese East Africa border, from the Lilongwe District of Nyasaland.1 The case involved an African migrant labourer, Jonifani Zekiya, who was suspected of bringing smallpox to Southern Rhodesia from Nyasaland, despite being in possession of a document issued at Lilongwe stating that he was vaccinated on September 9, 1946. The document reported that the vaccination had resulted only in an "accelerated reaction," indicating some degree of resistance to the disease. Yet, "a ... Read More

Redshaw of Australia's Department of Health presented a paper at a meeting of the Australasian Association of Psychiatrists titled "Psychiatric Problems Amongst Migrants." In light of the recent celebrations marking the arrival of Australia's "Millionth Migrant," Redshaw commented on the demographic transformation that the postwar immigration program had created, whereby "one in every ten of our population has arrived from overseas since the end of the war." However, he noted that the newcomers brought with them "problems of selection and assimilation" which must be addressed so that they "may be absorbed into our community without discordant repercussions." The severity of such problems varied. ... Read More

  • The Medical and the Anti-Modern: Horse-and-Buggy Mennonite Migrants and
           Medicine in Latin America
    • Abstract: THE SCHOLARLY QUESTION of health and migration revolves around a number of issues, one of which is its relationship to modern medicine. As immigrants crossed international borders, they encountered states and societies that sometimes stigmatized newcomers as racialized disease carriers, sometimes denied them access to modern medicine or the chance to work as professional health providers, sometimes questioned "pre-migration" medical cultures, and sometimes marshaled medical "knowledge" to legitimize the action of statesponsored "gatekeepers." But immigrants themselves have also used modern medicine in the process of integration, sometimes building on homeland-based training in modern medicine to obtain jobs in the ... Read More

  • Exclusion by Other Means: Medical Testing and Chinese Migration to Canada,
           1947-1967
    • Abstract: IN 1956, A 24-YEAR-OLD Chinese male was hospitalized at the lazaretto in Tracadie, New Brunswick. A previous resident of the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, and Toronto, the man was described as "rather apprehensive and suspicious" with "extensive skin lesions."1 Concerns about the individual, compounded by language difficulties, impeded doctors in their efforts to confirm the man's identity. They resorted to securing his original immigration records. Photographs used in the man's immigration application, as well as copies of X-rays submitted in Hong Kong as part of the application process eventually enabled medical authorities to confirm that the individual had been diagnosed with chronic bronchitis at the ...

  • Welcoming the Sick and Afflicted: Canada's Tubercular Admissions Program,

    • Abstract: IN LATE JANUARY 1960, a bewildered, confused, and excited group of 35 refugees disembarked an aircraft at the local Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) station in Winnipeg to find a reception awaiting them. On behalf of Manitoba's government, Maurice Ridley, Minister of Municipal Affairs, welcomed the group of newcomers. Ridley hoped that their stay in the province would be long and happy, although those individuals who were required to visit a sanatorium for treatment would only need a short stay. During interviews with the various media outlets in attendance, the refugees indicated that only a few weeks earlier, they had never considered permanent resettlement in Canada. Once inside the waiting room, away from the ... Read More

  • South Korean Nurses to West Germany' Reassessing the Role of the State
           in Postwar Global Labour Migration
    • Abstract: SINCE THE 1980s, women's active participation in the international labour market has stood out as a notable phenomenon.1 Referring to this trend as the "feminization of migration" highlights both the large number of women in global workforces and the fact that women have been the driving force of labour migration over the last four decades. Moreover, this term also gestures to the type of work—care work, nursing primarily—that these women perform. Nursing originated in maternal care and thus can be regarded as a type of care work.2 But, because it is usually categorized as a skilled or professional occupation requiring advanced education and licenses, nursing differs from such forms of care work as domestic work ...

    • Abstract: 2014 fut une année faste pour les études acadiennes. En plus d'un recueil sur l'historiographie et de la traduction d'une étude importante sur la commémoration1, livres qui ont fait l'objet d'une note critique dans une autre revue2, ont paru une histoire générale de l'Acadie, des monographies rafraîchissantes sur l'Acadie coloniale et sur le « moment 68 », ainsi que des ouvrages collectifs sur la langue et sur la désinstitutionnalisation psychiatrique. Il est rare qu'on assiste à un tel foisonnement.À l'exception de la brochure de Caroline-Isabelle Caron qui, genre oblige, est fort succincte, il n'existe pas de synthèse moderne d'histoire acadienne, du moins pas en français3. Et, selon moi, ce n'est pas l'Histoire ... Read More

  • They Should Stay There: The Story of Mexican Migration and Repatriation
           During the Great Depression by Fernando Saúl Alanís Enciso (review)
    • Abstract: While Mexican president Lázaro Cárdenas del Río is best remembered for agrarian reform, the nationalization of Mexican oil, and the welcoming of refugees of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), it is his government's attitude towards Mexican migration and the Mexican community in the United States which is at the centre of this fascinating study by Alanís Enciso. First published in Spanish as the author's doctoral dissertation in 2007, the study is still the definitive account of the repatriation of Mexicans and Americans of Mexican descent after the Great Depression called into question not only the economic future of the United States but also the status of Mexican immigrants. In this time of economic crisis and ... Read More

  • Tropical Freedom: Climate, Settler Colonialism, and Black Exclusion in the
           Age of Emancipation by Ikuko Asaka (review)
    • Abstract: In this important study of black migration, racial displacement, and colonization efforts between 1780 and 1865, Ikuko Asaka details the ways that formerly enslaved peoples' migration within North America and their transnational displacement was based on settler motivations and determinist justifications that black peoples were "best suited" for labour within tropical climates. "Versions of the doctrine that 'blacks naturally belong in the tropics,'" Asaka writes, "operated on multiple levels on free black populations, serving not only to justify their dislocation to tropical regions but to legitimate their peripheral economic and social positions in the metropoles and on continental frontiers" (p. 22). Throughout ... Read More

    • Abstract: Catholic Modern: The Challenge of Totalitarianism and the Remaking of the Church by James Chappel invites the reader to reflect upon Catholic attitudes during the twentieth century, roughly from the 1920s until the 1960s. Contrary to what the title suggests, it is not the Catholic Church and clergy, but mainly the Catholic laity and Catholic intellectuals who are at the core of Chappel's analysis, which, indebted to the most fruitful currents in Anglo-Saxon intellectual history, presents an incisive account of how Catholics became (and not were) modern in the selected time period. Unlike work by such scholars as Roger Griffin, whose take on the relationship between Fascism and modernism in Modernism and Fascism. ... Read More

  • Selling Out or Buying In': Debating Consumerism in Vancouver and
           Victoria, 1945-1985 by Michael Dawson (review)
    • Abstract: North Americans, today, shop around the clock, every day of the week. The internet has of course made almost every retail service or outlet available 24-7. Before the rise of e-commerce, however, consumers came to expect to be able to visit shopping malls, supermarkets, or big box stores whenever the need arose, every day of the week, if not at any time. And retail employees expect, and often have no choice but to work on holidays, weekends, and evenings. Michael Dawson's timely book reminds us that this was not always the case. This well-researched, engaging monograph uncovers the complex debates over store-hour restrictions that shaped the retail landscape of Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia, in the ... Read More

    • Abstract: As a social historian of rural eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Quebec, Christian Dessureault has consistently applied quantitative research methods at a localized scale to address broad historical questions. The mostly prepublished articles in this collection are preceded by a useful survey of his career written by four of his contemporaries. The book is divided into three sections, with the first one being generally socioeconomic in theme, the second more strictly social, and the third largely political. Dessureault takes a basically materialist approach to history, and his focus is on the class he refers to as the peasantry, but his main aim is to demonstrate that its members were economically and socially ...

           Psychiatric Care in Canada by Erika Dyck et Alex Deighton (review)

Mais ce n'est pas dans les habitudes de l'historienne Erika Dyck, titulaire de la chaire de recherche du Canada en histoire de la médecine à l'Université de la Saskatchewan, de s'engager dans des voies traditionnelles et trop souvent empruntées; ses recherches sur le LSD, l'eugénisme et la psychiatrie des Prairies en témoignent. Nul doute, donc, qu'en s'attaquant à l'histoire du Weyburn Mental Hospital, le deuxième hôpital ... Read More

  • Russia in Flames: War, Revolution, Civil War 1914-1921 by Laura Engelstein
           (review)
    • Abstract: After a bit of a lull in the study of the Russian revolution since the first years following the collapse of the Soviet Union, the centenary of the revolutions of 1917 has, not surprisingly, led to a flurry of new books on the subject. In her panoramic new account of the revolutionary period, Laura Engelstein focuses on politics and the problem of power: it was one thing for the Bolsheviks to seize power in October 1917, but they then had to reconstitute authority in the territories of the former Russian Empire—to reconstruct power in order to win the ensuing civil war. This the Bolsheviks did by mobilizing violence not just as a destructive force but as an instrument for building state institutions.Engelstein's ... Read More

           Northwestern Saskatchewan, 1845-1898 by Timothy P. Foran (review)

As he comments in his excellent introduction, previous researchers using these records have overlooked "the origins, education, affiliation and clerical status" of missionary authors, as well as "their reasons for writing, their intended audience, and their use of epistolary codes and conventions," "emphasizing content to the exclusion of authorship, intention and form," turning "missionary commentators into ...

  • Growing up in Armyville: Canada's Military Families during the Afghanistan

    • Abstract: Once, while leading a tour of an exhibition about the Afghanistan War at the Canadian War Museum, a woman who was present with her two middle school-aged children approached to apologetically (but firmly) explain that they needed to leave. Her husband, a Canadian Armed Forces member, was deployed to Afghanistan at the time, and the exhibition was hitting a bit too close to home for her and her children. I thought of that family when reading Growing up in Armyville.The book takes a close look generally at the people of Canadian Forces Base "Armyville" (a pseudonym), with a specific focus on the experiences of a sample of students who attended Armyville High School between 2006 and 2010. During this period, 800 ... Read More

Heaman's Tax, Order, and Good Government has a very ambitious agenda, covering all three levels of government, the whole country, and a long period; and it rests on a massive body of research, particularly in the newspapers of the period and in numerous inquiries about taxation. With the partial exception of its chapters on Montreal, Toronto, and the single tax movement, its narrative covers familiar episodes, including the Confederation settlement, Nova Scotia's quest for better terms, the politics of racialization in British Columbia, the national policy of tariff protection, the Liberals' victory in 1896, the Reciprocity election of 1911, and conscription and the adoption of a federal tax on incomes in ...

  • Horse Racing and British Society in the Long Eighteenth Century by Mike

    • Abstract: Mike Huggins is a well-established authority on aspects of British popular culture, and sporting history in particular, in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with an especial although not exclusive expertise in the history of horse racing. His earlier works include Kings of the Moor: Yorkshire Racehorse Trainers 1760-1900 (1991); Flat Racing and British Society 1790-1914: A Social and Economic History (2000); Horseracing and the British 1919-1939 (2003); and The Victorians and Sport (2004). In this new study, Huggins turns his attention to an earlier period, focusing on the social, cultural, and economic origins of what he describes as a "proto-modern sport," both "formative and anticipatory" in its ...

  • Homelands and Empires: Indigenous Spaces, Imperial Fictions, and
           Competition for Territory in Northeastern North America, 1690-1763 by
           Jeffers Lennox (review)
    • Abstract: Cet ouvrage apporte une contribution fondamentale à nos connaissances sur la lutte territoriale dans le nord-est de l'Amérique du Nord avant le traité de Paris (1763), c'est-à-dire avant la conquête de la Nouvelle-France. La confrontation des différentes visions de ce pays est au cœur de l'analyse, les Amérindiens voyant là leurs terres ancestrales et les Européens, des possessions impériales. Lennox affirme qu'il s'agit d'une histoire liée à l'expansion européenne et à la résistance amérindienne, histoire complexe parce que « empires and Indigenous peoples fought both against each other and among themselves, and struck alliances as necessary » (p. 4).

  • Graphic Culture: Illustration and Artistic Enterprise in Paris, 1830-1848
           by Jillian Lerner (review)
    • Abstract: Jillian Lerner's Graphic Culture is a remarkable example of interdisciplinary scholarship that brings to vivid life the burgeoning publishing world of July Monarchy France through careful analysis of its players, products, and practices. Working across the disciplines of art history, social history, and cultural studies, and centred on the graphic culture and artists of the 1830s and 1840s, Lerner has produced a stunning account of what must have been an exciting two decades to be a graphic artist in Paris. In crisp prose she chronicles the invention of modernity in art and visual culture and shows how the interplay of word, image, and taste harnessed the social anxiety that characterized the period to forge a ...

  • Fashioning the Canadian Landscape: Essays on Travel Writing, Tourism, and
           National Identity in the Pre-Automobile Era by J. L. Little (review)
    • Abstract: It was all about the landscape, it seems, when nineteenth-century travellers and tourists looked out their railway carriage windows or (more likely) from the deck of a steamer and recorded their impressions of Cape Breton, Quebec's Eastern Townships, the Labrador coast, or the lakes, mountains, and shorelines of British Columbia. In Fashioning the Canadian Landscape, historian J. I. Little has brought together eight previously published essays with two new contributions, along with an introduction and afterword, all of which foreground the role conceptions of landscape played in male travellers' and tourists' impressions of the Dominion. Little argues that notions of the picturesque inflected the accounts left by ... Read More

  • Buying Happiness: The Emergence of Consumer Consciousness in English

    • Abstract: Buying Happiness traces transformations in Canadian consumers from the late nineteenth century to the 1960s. It is a long-range study that historicizes the moral economies of spending in this period. Bettina Liverant argues that Canadian consumer society evolved in historically specific ways. She identifies key moments when the lines between being a citizen and a consumer begin to blur. The author has meticulously drawn from varied sources and collates them in inventive ways. The overall argument and its supporting claims are convincing and substantive. My sole frustration is with the book's organization. The book is designed to flow chronologically, and it does not serve her arguments well. Using chronology as an ... Read More

  • Policing Black Lives: State Violence in Canada from Slavery to the Present
           by Robyn Maynard (review)
    • Abstract: In August 2018, former Toronto city councillor Giorgio Mammoliti referred to members of a predominantly Black neighbourhood in Toronto as "cockroaches" and talked about "spraying them so that they scatter." He later claimed that he was "only" referring to "criminals." Mammoliti, who ultimately lost his seat on council, had campaigned on a promise to demolish social housing in a predominantly Black neighbourhood. Toronto mayor John Tory, seemingly taking his talking points from Mammoliti, later talked about evicting "criminals" from social housing. Over the past year in Ottawa, residents of Heron Gate—an affordable housing community with a large population of Somali residents—have been facing and resisting one of ... Read More

  • Nomads and Soviet Rule: Central Asia under Lenin and Stalin by Alun Thomas
           (review)
    • Abstract: Marxist theory provided little blueprint for dealing with nomads. Communist agents, whether in Moscow or in Central Asia, had little experience or knowledge in nomadic ways of life. Nor were they interested in understanding or supporting it, as Alun Thomas's book on Soviet policies towards Kazakh and Kyrgyz nomads during the New Economic Policy period (1921-1928) shows. The study is elegantly written and provides important insights into early Soviet attempts to institute Communist justice in the region. The author analyzes top-down visions, policies, and debates around nomadism, focusing on questions of sedentarization, allocation of land, and tax and cultural policies. He shows that decolonization, that is, the ... Read More
