Achieving Student Success : Effective Student Services in Canadian Higher Education Paperback / softback
This incisive and luminescent story, scrupulously grounded in sixteenth-century sources, illuminates the power that "naming" has to create a world - in this case a world still haunted by being the accidental Indies.
It is a book about how we perceive and represent the world around us, about the creative and destructive power of language.
Through its elaboration of the rich and lively ironies of the Columbus story, The Accidental Indies looks at the nature of storytelling itself.
