In Search Of Alias Grace from the Author: Margaret Atwood. Margaret Atwood's novel Alias Grace is based on the murder of Thomas Kinnear and his mistress Nancy Montgomery in 1843. Kinnear's manservant was hung for the crime, but the execution of his supposed accomplice Grace Marks, owing to her "feeble sex" and "extreme youth," was commuted to life. The entire event excited widespread interest although few agreed that justice had been served. Some denounced Grace as a cunning demon, others considered her a terrorized victim of circumstance and pleaded for mercy. These opinions were influenced by various political and religious agendas of the day as well as by Victorian views on gender, class and justice. Little concrete evidence was identified, and journalists contradicted one and other. Everyone who ever set pen to paper on the subject of Grace seems to have been intensely subjective. In In Search of Alias Grace, Margaret Atwood describes her own search for the facts, what she found out, what eluded her grasp and how this process shaped her novel.

Clio S Warriors from the Author: Tim Cook. Clio's Warriors examines how the Canadian world war experience has been constructed and reconstructed over time. Tim Cook elucidates the role of historians in codifying the sacrifice and struggle of a generation as he discusses historical memory and writing, the creation of archives, and the war of reputations that followed each of the world wars on the battlefield. Only recently have military historians pushed the discipline to explore the impact of war on society. In analyzing where the practice of academic military history has come from and where it needs to go, Clio's Warriors plays a vital role in the ongoing challenge of writing critical history.
