Phoenix: The Life of Norman Bethune
A surgeon, an artist, and a writer, Bethune was an extraordinary Canadian. His life was characterized by cycles of achievement and self-destruction. His adventurous spirit led him from the operating rooms of Montreal to the battlegrounds of Spain and China.
This book examines the reasoning that led Bethune to embrace Marxism and shows the depth of his faith in the triumph of communism, a commitment that led to his death from an infection caught while performing surgery in remote northern China.
Roderick Stewart, author of Bethune and The Mind of Norman Bethune, is a retired teacher of history.
Sharon Stewart has over twenty-five years experience as a writer and as an editor.

Disraeli: The Romance of Politics
The recurring fantasy structures of Disraeli’s novels bear a striking similarity to the imaginative shaping of his political career. O’Kell's investigation shines new light on Disraeli’s novels, his two governments, his imperialism, and his handling of the Irish Church Disestablishment Crisis of 1868 and the Eastern Question in the 1870s.
Robert O’Kell is Professor of English, and Dean Emeritus of the Faculty of Arts, at the University of Manitoba.
