With the Canadian women's Olympic hockey team and other high-profile female athletes in recent years drawing a healthy share of the sports media limelight, there is a perception that Canadian women are finally getting into sport in a big way. Not true. Canadian women have been playing and competing since the latter part of the nineteenth century, eager to participate and partake of the benefits that sports and physical exertion bring. From the beginning, social obstacles have made the playing field uneven for women. The resistance has used everything from arguments about unladylike dress and deportment and the dangers of exercise for Canada's future mothers, to barriers to sports facilities and overt harassment. Yet schoolgirls, society women and working-class women have relished sport and fought for their right to play and compete, with grit and dignity. Often their efforts have been honoured by city and provincial sports halls of fame, but their achievements are still little known. This book, illustrated throughout, tells the story of pioneering women athletes, and of the early sports media -- some of Canada's first women sportswriters --who championed them every step of the way.

The Sensational Restoration introduces readers to English Restoration writing, which is known for its skeptical libertinism. Here are portrayals of social mores, attitudes toward the arts, economic and political questions, social problems, and conventions of social graces. Among the writers' themes we find youth, cynicism, religious and philosophical assumptions, gender issues, and class and economic debates. The anthology begins with excerpts from Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan (1651) and includes Sir Walter Charleton's The Ephesian Matron (1659), a selection of poems, Sir George Etherege's The Man of Mode (1676), William Wycherley's The Plain Dealer (1676), Aphra Behn's The Rover (1677), and Thomas Shadwell's The Virtuoso (1676). Jensen provides a general introduction, as well as an introduction and annotations to each work.

First published in 1994, Lyn Pykett's The Sensation Novel from The Woman in Whiteto The Moonstone charted the re-emergence into critical view of the nineteenth century fictional genre which had, in its own day, enjoyed immense popular success and given rise to heated critical and moral debates. Since the mid-1990s the sensation novel has continued to attract the attention of both general readers, critics and scholars. In the last fifteen years the sensation novel has been brought to fresh audiences in numerous new editions and in new television and radio adaptations. This revised and expanded edition, retitled The Nineteenth-Century Sensation Novel, responds to these developments, taking account of recent studies of the genre, and expanding both the range of authors covered and its discussion of the authors originally included.

Money. Fame. Love. Who says you can't have it all? Being the daughter of a showbiz icon is a mixed blessing for Sienna Starr. Though she dreams of following in her famous mother's footsteps, she wants to get to the top on her own merits. Securing a role as a chorus girl in the Follies seems a step towards achieving her ambitions. But life isn't all glamour and glitz and, off the Strip, Las Vegas can be a dark and sinister place. Sienna then makes the mistake of ruffling the feathers of the show's star, Brandy Alexander. A legend in her own dressing room, not least for her astringent charms, Brandy doesn't take kindly to younger, prettier girls trying to outshine her. Yet Brandy's has more than one skeleton in the closet and dark secrets she'd do anything to hide...
