Families in Transition  Industry and Population in Nineteenth-Century Saint-Hyacinthe, Gossage, Peter
8 Gossage, Peter Families in Transition Industry and Population in Nineteenth-Century Saint-Hyacinthe
Montreal Mcgill Queens University Press 1999 0773518479 / 9780773518476 1st Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Studies on the History of Quebec.; 9.36 X 6.46 X 1.22 inches; 299 pages; Economic and social conditions in Saint-Hyacinthe changed dramatically in the later nineteenth century with the arrival of the railway and the emergence of manufacturing industry. In "Families in Transition" Peter Gossage shows how the rise of industrial capitalism transformed the lives of the town's French-speaking, Catholic families. Gossage uses a family-reconstitution method, drawing on local parish registers and manuscript-census schedules, to focus on marriage, household organisation, and family size in this context of social and economic change. Family formation was profoundly affected as couples adjusted to the new urban, industrial setting. Gossage demonstrates that demographic behaviour was increasingly differentiated by social class, with distinct marriage and fertility patterns emerging among bourgeois and proletarian families. Bourgeois women who married in the 1860s, for example, were already limiting family size, a crucial shift that did not occur in working-class families until almost a generation later. "Families in Transition" demonstrates the extent to which stereotypes about family life in Quebec before the Quiet Revolution need to be revisited. Far from being passive, static, uniformly prolific, and constrained by religious and cultural perspectives, Saint-Hyacinthe families responded quickly to the changing realities of the day, reinventing marriage patterns and domestic arrangements to fit the new industrial capitalism of the nineteenth century. In this sense they were truly "Families in Transition". Peter Gossage is associate professor of history and political science at Universite de Sherbrooke.

Light wear to extremities, corner curl. Front and back covers have some creasing. ; A tight solid book. ; Trade PB; B&W Photographs; 8.90 X 5.90 X 0.60 inches; 190 pages; An early account of the many prostitutes and young women who went missing from the streets of Vancouvers Downtown Eastside. This book was published just before the arrest of Willie Pickton, the convicted killer of many Vancouver prostitutes. "Examining a ten-block compound of poverty, pain, and despair in Canada, this book delves deep into the world of an area known as Low Track, where drug-addicted prostitutes barely sustain themselves and their habit by selling their bodies. Suspended in the miasma of smoke and despair and the stench that hangs over these mean streets is the mystery of 31 Low Track prostitutes who appear to have vanished over the past few years, without a trace. Exploring this true-life mystery, this book features interviews with the families of the missing women and the police involved in the case, offering several possible explanations of what might have happened.'' It includes photos of many of these missing women, many of whose names became familiar in the investigations in the years since.

I Am Hutterite, Kirkby, Mary-Ann

Prince Albert SK Polka Dot Press 2007 0978340507 / 9780978340506 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Only slight wear to book & dustjacket ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped.; 8.60 X 5.70 X 0.90 inches; 203 pages; Mary-Ann Kirkby spent the first ten years of her life in a Hutterite Colony in Manitoba, Canada. "Your mother and father are running away,said a voice piercing the warm air.I froze and turned toward home.To a Hutterite, nothing is more shamefulthan that word, running away, Weglaufen...In 1969, Ann-Maries parents did the unthinkable. They left a Hutterite colony in Canada with seven children, and little else, to start a new life. Overnight, the family was thrust into a society they did not understand and which knew little of their unique culture. The transition was overwhelming. Desperate to be accepted, ten-year-old Ann-Marie was forced to deny her heritage in order to fit in with her peers. I Am Hutterite chronicles her quest to reinvent herself as she comes to terms with the painful circumstances that led her family to leave community life. Rich with memorable characters and vivid descriptions, this ground-breaking narrative shines a light on intolerance, illuminating the simple truth that beneath every human exterior beats a heart longing for understanding and acceptance." Mary-Ann's transition into popular culture is both heartbreaking and hilarious.
