Product Description


"...the first truly important Canadian book of the century." Alex Rettie, Alberta Views "I cannot overstate the importance of this book. In it, Anthony Hall has done something both simple and revolutionary to the globalization debate: he has backdated it to the year 1492. With dazzling command of historical detail and up-to-the minute analysis, Hall spins a gripping narrative seamlessly connecting Columbus' 'conquest' of the Americas to the proposed Free Trade Area of the Americas. Most remarkably, readers are not left with a feeling of hopelessness in the face of this long history of plunder but are instead inspired to identify with valiant, centuries-old resistance movements. I see this book is as an overflowing tool box, filled with little known stories, legal arguments, and fresh ideas that, if used properly, could change the world." Naomi Klein, author No Logo "A very important book, full of challenging insights, fascinating information, and with a strong message." Boyce Richardson, author of People of Terra Nullius: Betrayal & Rebirth in Aboriginal Canada and Strangers Devour the Land. "Hall has a wide-ranging grasp of the literature dealing with the philosophical and ideological underpinnings of both European and Indian that led to the formation of the Canadian and American societies of today. This study is both thorough and carefully worked out. I know of no other works that have synthesized such a range of thought on the establishment of the British empire in the Americas, its interweaving with indigenous politics, and the consequent rise of the United States and Canada." Olive Dickason, author of Canada's First Nations: A History of Founding Peoples from Earliest Times "Anthony Hall has just produced a book of the kind and quality that appears only once every twenty-five years, a book that repositions our ideas and makes us see ordinary reality afresh ... All those qualities inherent in the researcher, activist, philosopher, scholar, Anthony Hall, have come together to make this volume readable, stimulating, provocative, disturbing, epiphanic, deeply satisfying, and endlessly informative. Buy it. Read it (And then read it again.)" Robin Matthews, Vive le Canada, Our Country, Our Voice "Readers now have the engaged, passionate, critical history of the founding moments of Canada and the United States that our times call for." Canadian Dimension

About the Author

Many animals build shelters, but only humans build homes. No other species creates such a variety of dwellings. Drawing examples from across the archaeological record and around the world, archaeologist Jerry D. Moore recounts the cultural development of the uniquely human imperative to maintain domestic dwellings. He shows how our houses allow us to physically adapt to the environment and conceptually order the cosmos, and explains how we fabricate dwellings and, in the process, construct our lives. The Prehistory of Home points out how houses function as symbols of equality or proclaim the social divides between people, and how they shield us not only from the elements, but increasingly from inchoate fear.Anthony J. Hall is the founding coordinator and associate professor, globalization studies, University of Lethbridge.
