librairie paragraphe

Left wing historian Author's visit in Montréal

A dear friend, left-wing historian, Jonathan Schneer,

a friend since McGill student days (1968 to be precise) is coming

in Montreal to present his newest book on Tuesday June 9th.

Libraire Paragraphe is central.

Reading at 6PM  on  Tuesday, June 9

at Librairie Paragraphe

2220 Avenue McGill College,

Montréal, QC H3A 3P9

MINISTERS AT WAR

by Jonathan Schneer

published by Basic Books, 2015.

Review 'Like Abraham Lincoln before him, Winston Churchill

proved himself a great war leader, as everyone knows.

 

But Jonathan Schneer's achievement is to show us how Churchill

too had to work with "a team of rivals" in his own war cabinet.

It is a story told with great assurance and studded with vivid personal detail.'

-

Peter Clark, author of Mr. Churchill's Profession

'Written with brio and a rich command of the sources, Jonathan Schneer

tells the fascinating and comparatively neglected story of Winston Churchill's

Grand Coalition Cabinet of Tories, Labour, and Liberals, the political leader

who played crucial roles in winning the war against Hitler.

Not surprisingly, they were also from time to tim at war against one another

and the Prime Minister. Churchill, despite his flaws, still emerges as the

hero essential for the saving of Britain and her allies.

 

This is a deeply insightful and important contribution to the understanding

of the most important event of the twentieth century.

-

Peter Stansky, Stanford University '

Jonathan Schneer's gripping account of Churchill and the men who worked wit

him during World War II succeeds in casting new light on a familiar subject.

This is popular history at its best.' -- Richard Toye, Professor of History, Universit

of Exeter 'An engrossing account of how Churchill led his ministry during the

Second World War, a team of rivals who never forgot politics however great

the peril to the nation. Jonathan Schneer treats his larger-than-life subjects

with great scholarship and shrewdness.'

-

Andrew Roberts F.R.S.A., bestselling author of Napoleon:

A Life 'A smoothly written and insightful examination of the men who aided

Churchill during the years fraught with danger from the Nazi war machine.

For most readers, this will be a book that cannot be put down until the last

page is reached. An exceptional history on an extremely important topic,

which should be acquired by all libraries.' Library Journal 'A striking look

inside the British government during a time when some of the most

interesting characters of a challenging era were fighting for both the nation's

salvation and their own ambitions. Churchill's role as a wartime leader is

well-known from a myriad of histories, but this is one of the best recent

treatments of his role as a head of government. Clear, thoroughly entertaining

and full of lively detail.' Kirkus Reviews 'Scholarly, yet grippingly readable'

Spectator 'Lucid and compelling... both scholarly and entertaining' Literar

Review 'Very timely. gripping and a pleasure to read' Press Association

'Refreshing... brings a different eye and perspective... convincing..

highly readable' BBC History, lead review 'Insightful...

Schneer has done a wonderful job' Good

CINSA 2015: Survivance & Reconciliation:

Survivance et réconciliation:

Regards croisés sur le passé et l'avenir

Location: Quebec, Canada

Conference Date: 2015-06-11

CINSA 2015: Survivance & Reconciliation:

Date: 11-13 June 2015

at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

 

Description:

The Canadian Indigenous/Native Studies Association (CINSA)

Conference 2015 will be hosted by the First Peoples Studies Progra

(FPST) at Concordia University. Concordia University's First Peoples

Studies program recently received government of Quebec accreditation

and began offering a minor and major in September 2013.

The year, 2015 is also the 40th anniversary of the groundbreaking

James Bay Agreement of 1975. Come honour and celebrate thes

two important events by participating in the first CINSA gathering since 2008.

The conference's theme borrows from the Anishinaabeg vision that asks all

people to consider themselves from the standpoint of Seven Generation

Back and Seven Generations Forward. Our peoples have endured much

over the last Seven Generations, but through our ancestors efforts we

have resisted and survived. Now the current generation is looking forward

Seven Generations to ensure our continued survival as peoples.

As part of the process we have embarked on a path of reconciliatio

with ourselves and settlers. We hope that such efforts will help ensure

our collective survivance through reconciliation.

 

The conference organizers seek original works examining the themes of

"survivance" and "reconciliation" in Quebec, Canada, North America, and

the World in relationship to Indigenous peoples and nations. Other topic

or themes will be considered. The organizing committee invites scholars

and community members to submit proposals, in French or English, for:

individual papers, panel sessions, posters, roundtables, workshops,

film screenings, and performances.

 

All French or English proposals (between 200 - 250 words) should be

accompanied by a brief CV (or a brief statement of relevant experienc

in relation to your proposal) and be submitted to the Organizing Committee

(cinsa@concordia.ca)

 

Facebook: CINSA Concordia 2015

All papers from the conference, either in French or English, from the

conference may be considered for publication in a conference proceedings.

The Canadian Indigenous/Native Studies Association (CINSA) is a community

of scholars committed to Indigenous/Native Studies as a discipline that is

informed by, and respectful of, Indigenous intellectual traditions. Among its

objects is the continued development of Aboriginal studies intellectualism

through the dissemination and discussion of research as well as

facilitation of communication between students, scholars, elders,

and community members.

As such, First Peoples Studies at Concordia University is honoured

to be chosen as the host for the 2015 gathering.
