Description : While coasts are often places of unsurpassing beauty, many coastal communities suffer from poverty, unemployment, health risks, and the effects of environmental degradation. Coasts Under Stress is a unique interdisciplinary exploration of the complex interplay of economy, culture, environment, and health in the coastal communities of eastern and western Canada.

Description : This is a book about power in small places, its perceptions and realities; where these conflict and where they come together. Based on research conducted on Canada's Atlantic and Pacific coasts, the chapters analyze the interaction of people and environment in coastal settings, the way power operates now, and how it has operated in the past. The book covers a wide range of natural resource issues and people's responses to change. It insists on a holistic perspective that recognizes the vital importance of social and ecological interconnectedness. This work breaks old disciplinary constraints and mirrors the ways in which people, the places in which they live, and the culture that sustains them are a seamless whole. This book is part of "Coasts Under Stress," a research project concerned with the impact of social and environmental restructuring on environmental and human health. The project is an initiative between Memorial University of Newfoundland and the University of Victoria, funded by SSHRC and NSERC.

Description : The Canadian Rangers stand sentinel in the farthest reaches of our country. For more than six decades, this dedicated group of citizen-soldiers has quietly served as Canada's eyes, ears, and voice in isolated coastal and northern communities. Drawing on official records, interviews, and participation in Ranger exercises, Lackenbauer argues that the organization offers an inexpensive way for Canada to "show the flag" from coast to coast to coast. The Rangers have also laid the foundation for a successful partnership between the modern state and Aboriginal peoples, a partnership rooted in local knowledge and crosscultural understanding.

Description : In 1766 Gaspé became an outpost of the Jersey metropole; in 1886 the Channel island of Jersey abandoned the region, reducing Gaspé, on Quebec's Atlantic coast, to Canadian outport status. From Outpost to Outport provides a structural and theoretical examination of the economic relationship between Jersey and Gaspé, explaining the development of codfish as a staple which, under merchant capital, secured success for Jersey at the expense of underdevelopment in Gaspé.

Description : Issues of sustainability and increased competition over coastal resources are changing practices of resource management. Societal concerns about environmental degradation and loss of coastal resources have steadily increased, while other issues like food security, biodiversity, and climate change, have emerged. A full set of social, ecological and economic objectives to address these issues are recognized, but there is no agreement on how to implement them. This interdisciplinary and "big picture book" – through a series of vivid case studies from environments throughout the world – suggests how to achieve these new resource management principles in practical, accessible ways.

Description : Grounded in critical heritage studies and drawing on a Pacific Northwest Coast case study, Maritime Heritage in Crisis explores the causes and consequences of the contemporary destruction of Indigenous heritage sites in maritime settings. Maritime heritage landscapes are undergoing a period of unprecedented crisis: these areas are severely impacted by coastal development, continued population growth and climate change. Indigenous heritage sites are thought to be particularly vulnerable to these changes and cultural resource management is frequently positioned as a community’s first line of defense, yet there is increasing evidence that this archaeological technique is an ineffective means of protection. Exploring themes of colonial dislocation and displacement, Hutchings positions North American archaeology as neoliberal statecraft: a tool of government designed to promote and permit the systematic clearance of Indigenous heritage landscapes in advance of economic development. Presenting the institution of archaeology and cultural resource management as a grave threat to Indigenous maritime heritage, Maritime Heritage in Crisis offers an important lesson on the relationship between neoliberal heritage regimes and global ecological breakdown.

Description : This book examines the history of health, diet, and nutrition with a particular focus on the issue of decreasing food security in places where once-stable food webs have suffered radical shock, as have the cultures of human communities, which have always been interdependent with now-endangered food sources. This volume came into being as one output from a large, federally funded collaborative research program involving over 80 researchers and students from both Atlantic and Pacific Coasts of Canada: 'Coasts under Stress'. Two meetings of contributors were called specifically to work on this writing project. All writers were present at both meetings and all writers saw and critiqued early drafts of all chapters.

Description : It has long been acknowledged that research does not directly translate into knowledge nor does knowledge necessarily, or even often, translate into wisdom. Whether the immediate challenge is global warming, epidemic disease, poverty, environmental degradation, or social fragmentation, our research efforts are all wasted if we cannot devise processes to create and transfer knowledge to policy makers, interested groups and ordinary people in a manner that is efficient and understandable. How we maximize the impact of the research that scholars do and how to combine that with knowledge already extant in "lay" or "local" communities, are key issues in a world with scarce research resources and numerous social and scientific conflicts.Making and Moving Knowledge focuses directly on how knowledge is created, transferred and used and perhaps most important, how it is blocked and atrophies. It treats knowledge generated by universities and governments alongside "traditional" and practical knowledge generated in coastal aboriginal and non-aboriginal communities and looks at how the different kinds flow in different directions. The chapters are theoretical, methodological, and applied as the authors model their commitment to knowledge transfer in their work with community, academics and policy makers.
