One morning a young patient fails to keep an appointment. Room is the story of what happens to Amelia in the days that follow.

At 9:00 in the morning, the day begins for children of the 1800's as they walk to their one room school. Children ages eight through eighteen years of age enter the building as they are greeted by their teacher. All of the students will be learning their lessons in one room at the same time. The schoolhouses grades one through eight and all grade level subjects are taught by one teacher. The schoolhouse is often very cold, because there is only a potbelly stove to warm it. Long windows on two sides of the room provide the only light in the room. There is no cafeteria for a warm meal and no bathroom facilities in the building. Even with these minimum facilities, these children have fun as they learn through spelling bees and ciphering contests. This book includes sections on games that were played during recess, recipes of food eaten for lunch, directions on how to make items used in school at this time, and samples of lessons that were learned.

Living Room Wars brings together Ien Ang's recent writings on television audiences, and , in response to recent criticisms of cultural studies, argues that it is possible to study audience pleasures and popular television in a way that is not naively populist. Ang examines how the makers and marketers of television attempt to mould their audience and looks at the often unexpected ways in which the viewers actively engage with the programmes they watch. Living Room Wars highlights the inherent contradictions of a `politics of pleasure' of television consumption: Ang moves beyond the trditional forcus on textual meanings to explore the structural and historical representations fo television audiences as an integral part of modern culture. Her wide-ranging and illuminating discussion takes in the battle between television and its audiences; the politics of empirical audience research; new technologies and the tactics of television consumption; ethnography and radical contextualism in audience studies; television fiction and women's fantasy; feminist desire and female pleasure in media consumption, and the transnational media system.

Amsterdam-based sculptor Aernout Mik creates walk-in installations where video film combines with architectural elements to transform familiar spatial structures into unfamiliar and provoking ones. Two of his newest and most important works show absurd film scenes on a backscreen foregrounded by an actual identical scene: illusion vs. reality. Mik's grotesque, amusing, and at the same time serious films deal with the behavior of people in a group, highlighting their actions, interactions, and reactions.

The Hidden Room is filled with treasure gathered from over five decades of some of the best poetry ever written in Canada. Almost all of the poetry P. K. Page has published in volume form is here, all the way from Unit of Five (1944) to Hologram (1994), together with a good many unpublished poems and poems hitherto published only in magazines, from all stages of her career. A section of luminous new poems completes the volume. Evening Dance of the Grey Flies and Hologram appear substantially as first published, though virtually every other section has undergone thoughtful reassessment by the author with the assistance of editor Stan Dragland. The Hidden Room is something more than simply a mechanical Collected. The inclusion of uncollected and new poems has demanded a re-choreographing, a reassortment of familiar poems into new families. The Hidden Room is quite possibly the best collection of verse ever published in this country. This is the essential, rather than the entire P. K. Page, a lifetime of work that any poet would be proud to call their own.
