James Ferrabee and Michael Harrison reveal that even as decades have passed and economic trends have soared and crashed, MacDougall, MacDougall & MacTier has been able to rely in good times and bad on the tradition and continued presence of the MacDougall family as well as the firm's core values: integrity, independence, and trust. Not only rich in detail about the history of the company, its founding family, and Canadian business, Staying Connected also offers a lively portrait of the city of Montreal from the mid-nineteenth century to the early twenty-first. Accessible and amusing, this is an inside account of a continual success story.

Alcohol policies reflect conflicting ideological, social, health, and commercial agendas. Sober Reflections describes the development of alcohol policies at the national level and in Alberta, Quebec, and Ontario between 1980 and 2000. Using qualitative research methods, the essays examine the roles of key players, including governments, NGOs, public health advocates, and representatives of the alcohol industry. The contributors base their incisive papers on interviews with representatives from public health and the government, lobbyists, researchers, media, and those in the alcohol industries, as well as on an analysis of government documents, newspaper accounts, and official statistics.

The book opens the concepts of groups and the state, arguing for the complexity of their relations and interpenetrations. Carol Weisbrod draws on richly diverse historical and cultural material to explore various structures that have been seen as appropriate for adjusting relations between states and internal groups.
