This book investigates theatre as a tool for community engagement, education, and resistance.

Co-edited by Chris Bundock

The American Politics of French Theory: Derrida, Deleuze, Guattari, and Foucault in Translation (University of Toronto Press, 2018)
By Jason Demers 
In this book Demers argues that ideas are not developed within the vacuum of a discipline or a nation-state, but rather through various borders. Demers explains the cross-pollination of French philosophy, international activist movements, and American countercultures to demonstrate why, in an era of mass communication and global revolt, translation is best thought of as a web of associations.

The Prairie Populist: George Hara Williams and the Untold Story of the CCF (University of Regina Press, 2018)
By John Conway

George Hara Williams was arguably the most successful of the early leaders of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF), yet his contribution to the party is now almost forgotten. This book documents Williams’ role in building the CCF and bringing it to the threshold of power, and explains how the party machinations led to his defeat as leader: a story that, until now, has never been fully told.

The Financialization of Agri-Food Systems: Contested Transformation Financialization
(Routledge, 2018)
Co-edited by André Magnan
This book contends that the actions of financial actors, and their financial logics, are transforming agri-food systems in profound ways. The book illustrates that although financialization is a powerful dynamic, some recent developments suggest that the rollout of financialization is contradictory and uneven in different spaces and markets. The authors address not only the limits to financialization, but also the mechanisms through which financial entities are able to penetrate and re-shape agri-food industries.
