Air Quality in Airplane Cabins and Similar Enclosed Spaces

MARTIN HOCKING, CHEMISTRY PROF. EMERITUS DIANA HOCKING, MA '91, EDS.
Springer-Verlag, 2005 . 254 pages . US $179.00

The culmination of work begun during his undergraduate linguistics studies, Stonham has produced the first dictionary of the 5,000-year-old Nuuchahnulth family of languages. It collects more than 7,000 headwords with English equivalents, usage examples, dialectal variation, grammar and a 7,500-entry glossary.

Blood Sports
EDEN ROBINSON, BFA '92
McClelland & Stewart, 2006 . 288 pages . $32.99

Robinson's second novel-vividly violent, shocking and set in East Van-evolves from her earlier work in the novella Contact Sports. The Globe and Mail calls Robinson "one of the half-dozen highly disciplined, fiercely determined younger novelists in this country who are radically revising the face of our fiction by abandoning Northrop Frye's puzzled question, 'Where is here?' in favour of.a genuinely amazed 'What is here.'"

The Line Which Separates
SHEILA MCMANUS, MA '94
University of Alberta Press, 2005 . 300 pages . $34.95

Drawing on sources ranging from government maps and reports to oral testimony and personal papers, McManus explores the uneven way the border between Alberta and Montana was superimposed in Blackfoot country in order to divide a previously cohesive region in the late 19th century.

Puppies on Board
SARAH HARVEY, BA '87
Orca Book Publishers, 2005 . 32 pages . $19.95

For kids, ages 4-8, comes the story of a girl, her floating home, and how to deal with the arrival of 11 "wriggling, noisy, hungry puppies." It leaves them wondering: "How many puppies does it take to capsize a boat?"
