Harry W. Arthurs is a name held in high esteem by labour lawyers and aca- demics throughout the world. Although many are familiar with Arthurs’s con- tributions and accomplishments, few are acquainted with the man himself, or how he came to be one of the most influential figures in Canadian law and legal education. In Connecting the Dots Arthurs recounts his adventures in academe and the people, principles, ideas, motivations, and circumstances that have shaped his thinking and his career. The memoir offers intimate recollections and ob- servations, beginning with the celebrated ancestors who influenced Arthurs’s upbringing and education. It then sweeps through his career as an architect of important reforms in legal education and explores his research as a trail- blazing commentator on the legal profession. Arthurs analyzes his experiences as a legal theorist and historian and his pivotal role as a discordant voice in debates over constitutional and administrative law. Along the way, he muses on the intellectual projects he embraced or set in motion, the institutional reforms he advocated, the public policies he recommended, and how they fared long term. Framed with commentary on the historical context that shaped each decade of his career and punctuated by moments of personal reflection, Connecting the Dots is a humorous, frank, and fearless account of the rise and fall of Canadian labour law from the man who was at the centre of it all. Harry Arthurs, professor emeritus at Osgoode Hall Law School and former president of Toronto’s York University, is a leading Canadian labour lawyer, legal educator, university administrator, and government policy advisor. Highlighting the geopolitical and economic circumstances that have prompted migration from Hong Kong and mainland China to Canada, The Transcul- tural Streams of Chinese Canadian Identities examines the Chinese Canadian community as a simultaneously transcultural, transnational, and domestic social and cultural formation. Essays in this volume argue that Chinese Canadians, a population that has produced significant cultural imprints on Canadian society, must create and constantly redefine their identities as manifested in social science, literary, and historical spheres. These perpetual negotiations reflect social and cultural ide- ologies and practices and demonstrate Chinese Canadians’ recreations of their self-perception, self-expression, and self-projection in relation to others. Con- textualized within larger debates on multicultural society and specific Chinese Canadian cultural experiences, this book considers diverse cultural presenta- tions of literary expression, the “model minority” and the influence of gender and profession on success and failure, the gendered dynamics of migration and the growth of transnational (“astronaut”) families in the 1980s, and inter- ethnic boundary crossing. Taking an innovative approach to the ways in which Chinese Canadians adapt to and construct the Canadian multicultural mosaic, The Transcultural Streams of Chinese Canadian Identities explores various patterns of Chinese cultural interchanges in Canada and how they intertwine with the commu- nity’s sense of disengagement and belonging. Jessica Tsui-yan Li is assistant professor of Chinese literature, film, and culture in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics at York University. 4 5 M Q U P S P R I N G 2 0 1 9 L A W • M E M O I R A S I A N S T U D I E S • C U LT U R A L S T U D I E S S P E C I F I C AT I O N S June 2019 -5,7a755pl7l5a-7p 4p-i-lv bAU1 4p-i-l£ Dc1 kpsiaa $.9ru n B - S-s66 0g99T omot.oN.0 S P E C I F I C AT I O N S April 2019 -5,7a755pl7ln,l7a 4phi-l£ bAU1 4phi-l£ Dc1 ksni-- 6o602 -5,7a755pl7ln,h7p 4SSaiaac bAU1 4SSaiaac Dc1 k,,iaa $.9ru n B - saa66 S 6u9r91 5 Cto:2ox3 0g99T omot.oN.0 Connecting the Dots The Life of an Academic Lawyer harry w. arthurs An intellectual memoir by one of Canada’s leading legal scholars.
