This book uses a collection of stories, or "cases," as a basis for reflection, discussion, and learning about the many roles "play" has in children's lives. Each of the 12 cases addresses an issue of play from one of three categories--the role of adults in play, the cultural meanings of play, and the issues related to play in special settings. Following the introduction, the chapters are: (1) "Can Too Many Cooks Spoil the Broth? Beliefs about the Teacher's Role in Children's Play (Spielberger and McLane); (2) "'Teacher, They Won't Let Me Play!' Strategies for Improving Inappropriate Play Behavior" (Bartolini and Lunn); (3) "Aggression in the Playroom: Teaching Conflict Resolution to Children" (Levin); (4) "'We Don't Play Like That Here!' Understanding Aggressive Expressions of Play" (Ardley and Ericson); (5) "What's Wrong with Playing Cowboys and Indians?: Teaching Cultural Diversity to Preschoolers" (Klein and Mills); (6) "'Eenie, Meenie, Mynie Mo': The Persistence of Racial Definitions in Play" (Malone-Fenner); (7) "'But Are They Learning Anything?' African American Mothers, Their Children, and Play" (Williams); (8) "The Welcoming Place: Tungasuvvingat Inuit Head Start Program" (Reynolds); (9) "Helping Parents Take the Lead: Preparing Children for Health Care Procedures" (Hartley); (10) "Roundabout We Go: A Playable Moment with a Child with Autism" (Phillips); (11) "Eddie Goes to School: Facilitating Play with a Child with Special Needs" (Allen and Brown); (12) "'Every Time They Get Started, We Interrupt Them': Children with Special Needs at Play" (Henderson and Jones).

Saqiyuq is the name the Inuit give to a strong wind that suddenly shifts direction; Saqiyuq: Stories from the Lives of Three Inuit Women is a vivid portrait of the changing nature of life in the Arctic during the twentieth century. Through their life stories a grandmother, daughter, and granddaughter take us on a remarkable journey in which the cycles of life -- childhood, adolescence, marriage, birthing and child rearing - are presented against the contrasting experiences of three successive generations. Their memories and reflections give us poignant insight into the history of the people of the new territory of Nunavut. Apphia Awa, who was born in 1931, experienced the traditional life on the land while Rhoda Katsak, Apphia's daughter, was part of the transitional generation who were sent to government schools. In contrast to both, Sandra Katsak, Rhoda's daughter, has grown up in the settlement of Pond Inlet among the conveniences and tensions of contemporary northern communities - video games and coffee shops but also drugs and alcohol. During the last years of Apphia's life Rhoda and Sandra began working to reconnect to their traditional culture and learn the art of making traditional skin clothing. Through the storytelling in Saqiyuq, Apphia, Rhoda, and Sandra explore the transformations that have taken place in the lives of the Inuit and chart the struggle of the Inuit to reclaim their traditional practices and integrate them into their lives. Nancy Wachowich became friends with Rhoda Katsak and her family during the early 1990s and was able to record their stories before Apphia's death in 1996. Saqiyuq: Stories from the Lives of Three Inuit Women will appeal to everyone interested in the Inuit, the North, family bonds, and a good story.

Using archival material and oral testimony collected during workshops in Nunavut between 1996 and 2008, Frédéric Laugrand and Jarich Oosten provide a nuanced look at Inuit religion, offering a strong counter narrative to the idea that traditional Inuit culture declined post-contact. They show that setting up a dichotomy between a past identified with traditional culture and a present involving Christianity obscures the continuity and dynamics of Inuit society, which has long borrowed and adapted "outside" elements. They argue that both Shamanism and Christianity are continually changing in the Arctic and ideas of transformation and transition are necessary to understand both how the ideology of a hunting society shaped Inuit Christian cosmology and how Christianity changed Inuit shamanic traditions.
