As a commercial fisher in Nova Scotia in the early 1990s, Raymond Rogers experienced the collapse of Canada’s East Coast fishery first-hand. Afterward, while preparing to leave the province to find work elsewhere, Rogers noticed a lone gravestone across the road from his home in Shelburne County that commemorates the life of Donald McDonald, a crofter from the Isle of Lewis in Scotland, who “departed this life” in 1881. Rogers wondered if there might be a connection between the necessity of his own departure, and McDonald’s lonely presence on the nearby Atlantic shore, linking them as members of local communities that were displaced in the name of “economic progress.” In Rough and Plenty: A Memorial, Rogers explores the parallel processes of dispossession suffered by nineteenth-century Scottish crofters expelled from their ancestral lands during the Highland Clearances, and by the marginalization of coastal fishing communities in Nova Scotia. The book aims to memorialize local ways of life that were destroyed by the forces of industrial production, as well as to convey the experience of dislocation using first-hand narratives, recent and historical. The author makes the case that in a world where capital abhors all communities but itself, remembering becomes a form of advocacy that can challenge dominant structures.

A preacher battles a bear, a mother returns from the dead, and a clever servant conducts a Big Feet Contest in this rich anthology of African-American folklore. Scores of humorous and harrowing stories, collected during the mid-twentieth century, tell of talking animals, ghosts, devils, and saints. The first part of the book provides a setting for the fables, in which folklorist Richard M. Dorson discusses their origins and the artistry of storytellers. The second part consists of the tales, which include the adventures of Old Marster and John, supernatural episodes, and comical and satirical anecdotes as well as more realistic accounts of racial injustice. Recounted in the actual words of the narrators, the folktales abound in bold language, memorable imagery, and bittersweet humor that reflect the essence of African-American storytelling traditions.

With the influx of young Jamaicans into post-war Britain, the sounds that were so much a part of the West Indian culture they left behind found new, fertile soil in the UK music scene. Over the following decades, home-grown names like Delroy Washington, Matumbi and Lloyd Coxson took the baton from their Jamaican brother, not to create a picture of Jamaica away from Jamaica but to forge a brave new reggae world in their adopted heartland. But who were the singers and players on British-recorded material? Who set up the UK's fledgling reggae labels? Who ran the shops that put the music back on the streets? With a cast of characters since made legendary by their contribution to the UK reggae scene, Tighten Up! is the story of how the authentic Jamaican vibe found a new home, becoming a vital chapter in Britain's cultural history, an integral part of its sonic architecture. Complete with interviews, a comprehensive Pama discography, an exhaustive directory of UK reggae labels and an exclusive 12-track CD, Tighten Up ! is the ultimate companion to UK reggae from 1960 to 1980.
