Summary : For many years after Confederation, Canadian governments wrestled with a sorry fact: until the West was settled, Canada was an illogical country. The great nation-building policies of John A. Macdonald's National Policy and the transcontinetal railway could not succeed without a living farm population on the prairies. On the other side of the Atlantic, the Austrian crown lands of Bukovyna and Galicia - part of present-day Ukraine - were overpopulated with "redundant" peasants. Their precarious existence triggered the forces of emigration. More than 170 000 of them sailed for Canada. Life in the promised land was hard. To begin with, Canadians seemed to think that the only good immigrants were British. Some went so far as to suggest that the Ukrainian newcomers were less than human. Editorialists wondered how "beings bearing the human form could have sunk to such a bestial level." But on the harsh and remote prairies, the Ukrainians triumphed over the toil and isolation of homesteading. Those who turned to wage work withstood the wretched conditions reserved for the labour of the emerging Canadian industrial system. As the question of education rights split the West on religious lines in the early years of the century, the Ukrainians were caught in the crossfire between French Catholics and English Protestants. Despite all this, the peasants put down roots and prospered. Peasants in the Promised Land is the first book to focus on the formative period of Ukrainian settlement in Canada. Drawing on exhaustive research, including rich Ukrainian-language archival sources, Jaroslav Petryshyn brings history to life with extracts from memoirs, letters and newspapers of the period. His text is illustrated with maps and historical photographs.

Summary : Jenny Pearce crossed the front line in El Salvador to collect oral histories from the people living under bombardment in Chalatenango, an area controlled by the FMLN guerillas. Promised Land traces how, despite 50 years of systematic and brutal repression, the peasants began to organize themselves. In the face of growing landlessness and misery, they formed a union in the 1970s to fight for cheaper credit, lower rents, and better wages on the plantations. Together with other labour organizations, they created one of the best organized and most combative popular movements in Latin America. When the deepening political crisis led to civil war this provided the foundation for the guerilla army and the civilian administration of the area controlled by it. Here the peasants were able to elect councils, to run health and education programmes and to organize production - for the first time to realize the potential of their lives. Under US tutelage, the Salvadorean army has responded with bombings, and terrifying invasions. Promised Land vividly portrays these events with photographs and the words of people directly involved. It provides the background to understanding current events and where solutions may lie for the people of El Salvador.

Summary : Childhood in the Promised Land is the first history of France's colonies de vacances, a vast network of summer camps created for working-class children. The colonies originated as a late-nineteenth-century charitable institution, providing rural retreats intended to restore the fragile health of poor urban children. Participation grew steadily throughout the first half of the twentieth century, "trickling up" by the late 1940s to embrace middle-class youth as well. At the heart of the study lie the municipal colonies de vacances, organized by the working-class cities of the Paris red belt. Located in remote villages or along the more inexpensive stretches of the Atlantic coast, the municipal colonies gathered their young clientele into variously structured "child villages," within which they were to live out particular, ideal visions of the collective life of children throughout the long summer holiday. Focusing on the creation of and participation in these summer camps, Laura Lee Downs presents surprising insights into the location and significance of childhood in French working-class cities and, ultimately, within the development of modern France. Drawing on a rich array of historical sources, including dossiers and records of municipal colonies discovered in remote town halls of the Paris suburbs, newspaper accounts, and interviews with adults who participated in the colonies as children, Downs reveals how diverse groups—including local Socialist and Communist leaders and Catholic seminarians—seized the opportunity to shape the minds and bodies of working-class youth. Childhood in the Promised Land shows how, in creating the summer camps, these various groups combined pedagogical theories, religious convictions, political ideologies, and theories about the relationship between the countryside and children's physical and cognitive development. At the same time, the book sheds light on classic questions of social control, highlighting the active role of the children in shaping their experiences.

Summary : Ten years ago thousands of men, women, and children from El Salvador fled to Honduras to escape government repression and violence. They gathered together into a refugee camp, Colomoncagua. What began as a disorganized collection of individuals would develop into a near-utopian community of 8,400 people. The refugees arrived as illiterate and frightened peasants with little experience with democratic institutions; within a few years they transformed the camp into an economically active, democratic, and participatory society. Steve and Beth Cagan tell the story of the refugees' harrowing flight, their determination to make a better life for themselves, and their brave decision to return to El Salvador. We learn of the refugees' successful efforts at developing education, occupational training, improved nutrition, health care, gender equality, and participatory democracyÐÐdespite extreme poverty and confinement and repression from the Honduran government. But even as they were creating a new life for themselves, the refugees were longing for their homeland, El Salvador. After long and complex negotiations with the governments of Honduras and El Salvador, the refugees repatriated, literally picking up their community and crossing over the border. There, in early 1990, they established a new city named for one of the slain Jesuit priests, Dr. Segundo Montes, where they hope to maintain their communitarian style of work and organization. This compelling story is illustrated with over one hundred superb photographs of the refugees and their community. The pictures and text work together, inspiring us to believe that people can sustain hope and can work to improve the conditions of their lives even in the worst circumstances.
