In Shall We Dance? Charles Blattberg shows that while a just politics based on dialogue is at the core of Canadians' sense of ourselves as a citizenry, our current forms of dialogue are inadequate. For example, neutralist thinkers such as Pierre Trudeau assume that politics must take place on a unified foundation, with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms having a trumping status when it conflicts with values not contained within it. The final word thus goes to those Supreme Court justices responsible for applying the Constitution. Any dialogue here, it is clear, is of that limited sort known as pleading. Pluralist thinkers such as Kenneth McRoberts, however, defend an approach that is in keeping with the longstanding Canadian political tradition of compromise. For them, we need see that even our most basic rights are open to negotiation, a form of dialogue that aims at accommodation. Blattberg argues that both of these approaches have failed and asserts that the preferred form of dialogue in Canadian politics today should be that of conversation. As he shows, only conversation aims for genuine reconciliation of conflict; only it will help us realize the common good that is at the heart of what he calls a patriotic politics; and only such a politics can help us be true to our history, to our present, and, indeed, to our future.

Perry Shepherd, Earl of Brentwood, presents himself to Society as a bit of a fribble; carefree, fairly indolent, and bored to flinders by anything remotely political. But appearances can deceive, because scratch that polished surface and the real Perry appears, an invaluable and rather ruthless covert asset to England during the late war with Bonaparte. Perry ignores the reappearance of Princess Caroline, consort of the new King George IV…until his wily uncle orders him to ferret out information that would make it possible for the new king to divorce his unwanted, blowsy, and rather audacious spouse before he is forced to crown her as his Queen. Left with no options, Perry decides the way to the Princess is through her most trusted ally, Amelia Fredericks. A little charm, a few of his winning smiles sprinkled in with a touch of flattery to the girl, and, well, as one of his new acquaintances is known to say, “Bob’s your uncle.” Except that Amelia is so sincere, so trustworthy, so devoted to Caroline…and it’s possible that both she and princess are in grave danger. Now Perry has a problem: how does he tell the truth to the woman he’s been lying to even as he falls in love with her? Don't miss the book that precedes this story, featuring Morgan Drummond: The Butler Did It “Michaels truly shines in this gem of a historical romance rich in witty dialogue and intriguing political maneuverings.” -- Review by Patty Engelmann; American Library Association.

On the eve of the Great War, they had the world at - and watching - their feet. If God is in the details, they were divine.Vernon and Irene Castle were the world's first true celebrity couple. He, an Englishman, was tall and slim, as poised as an elegant evening out, a template for the Hollywood idols who would follow. In a staid age, she, a New Yorker, was a glorious, modern beauty, with her haired cropped into a 'shock', a disdain for crippling corsets, a love of a martini and a good time.Together, they beat the censors and made their vibrant dancing acceptable for all. In the fashionable quarters of New York they opened a dance school and night clubs to which Society flocked. They broke the rules by touring with black musicians, and led the way forward to the Charleston-galloping Gatsby Generation. They enlightened and enchanted from London to Paris to New York, spreading a breathless joy, as though their music had one note, and their dances one step, too many. Launching one racy dance craze after another, they taught the world to dance - and often dress - the way we do today. Adored and acclaimed, they were stars long before the celebrity constellations grew crowded.Yet the whirlwind story of perhaps the most influential dance team ever is also one of tragedy. Their timing, so perfect in everything else, saw Vernon Castle, at the height of their fame, return to England to enlist in the Royal Flying Corps; he saw action as a pilot on the Western Front, winning the Croix de Guerre, while his wife made special appearances to support the Allied war effort. And then, in February 1918, he was killed in a flying accident in Texas, while training American pilots for war. Irene received a last note from him: 'When you receive this letter I shall be gone out of your sweet life. You may be sure that I died with your sweet name on my lips... be brave and don't cry, my angel.'She and many others did cry, for as far as the world was concerned Vernon and Irene Castle could have danced all night, and for ever.'The afternoon was already planned; they were going dancing - for those were the great days: Maurice was tangoing in "Over the River", the Castles were doing a stiffed-leg walk in the third act of the 'Sunshine Girl' - a walk that gave the modern dance a social position and brought the nice girl into the café, thus beginning a profound revolution in American life. The great rich empire was feeling its oats and was out for some not too plebeian, yet not too artistic fun.' - F. Scott Fitzgerald, 'The Perfect Life', one of the Basil and Josephine Stories, first published in the Saturday Evening Post, 5 January 1929.
