10 BANTING, KEITH G.; STEPHANE DION, ANDREW STARK The collapse of Canada?
Washington, Brookings Institution, 1992 0815792530 / 9780815792536 Soft Cover 
R. Kent Weaver, editor. 186 pages, map, wrappers, very good. From the back cover: America's northern neighbor faces a severe constitutional crisis. Unprecedented levels of public support for sovereignty in the predominantly French-speaking province of Quebec could lead to the breakup of Canada. Thus crisis was precipitated by two Canadian provinces failure in 1990 to ratify the Meech Lake Accord, a package of revisions to Canada's constitution that addressed Quebec's grievances concerning its place within the Canadian federation. The current predicament is not an isolated incident - it is part of a recurring pattern of constitutional crises in Canada. The longer-term question is, can workable solutions be found to keep Canada intact, or is a sovereign Quebec inevitable sooner or later? This book, aimed at an international audience, examines the complex roots of Canada's constitutional discontent, the options currently being considered, and possible futures for 'northern North America.'

11 BEASLEY, DAVID R. The Canadian Don Quixote: the life and works of Major John Richardson, Canada's first novelist.
Erin, Ontario Porcupine's Quill 1977 0889840202 / 9780889840201 Soft Cover 
219 pages, illustrations, pictorial wrappers, oblong, very good. From the publisher: In researching the history of Upper Canada where his ancestors were among the first to settle, David R. Beasley came upon a footnote which told of the death of the Canadian author, Major John Richardson. Richardson died of poverty in New York after leading a tempestuous life in the British Army, and publishing several novels. After a decade of searching for details of Major Richardson in various countries, Mr. Beasley has pieced together a fascinating story of Canad's first distinguished author. It is a book which reveals not only the complex personality of Major Richardson, but also the early history of Canada. Mr. Beasley discusses the works of Major Richardson, among them Wacousta and The War of 1812, and how they reflect his experiences. It is an invaluable book for students of Canadian literature. The book is well researched and might be considered the standard biography of one of Canada's important writers.

L'ecrit, dans notre civilisation du changement, assure une permanence; il maintient vivant, en depit de toute l'ingeniosite de la technologie moderne, le vieil adage selon lequel les paroles et les images passent alors que les ecrits restent. Cette publication sur l'Assemblee nationale m'apparait a la fois simple dans son style et precise dans son contenu. L'auteur a aborde la triple realite qui fait de l'Assemblee nationale ce qu'elle est: une institution politique, un lieu historique et, enfin, un organisme administratif."
