  Free Knowledge: Confronting the Commodification of Human Discovery
(University of Regina Press) Alarms are being sounded around the globe over the increasing commercialization of public knowledge for private profit. Whether you are a farmer, a university student, a medical patient, or a library user,these developments impact your daily life. Knowledge privatization holds growing sway over the choice of the foods you eat, the medicine you take, the software you use, the music you hear, and even the flowers you plant in your own backyard. This is the result of a world where plant seeds have become subject to patents, medical research is overseen by pharmaceutical giants,universities are beholden to corporate funders, and indigenous knowledge is expropriated.

  Potash: An Inside Account of Saskatchewan's Gold
(University of Regina Press) In Saskatchewan, politics and potash are continuously, inextricably intertwined. The province is the largest single producer of potash on earth, accounting for about a quarter of the world’s total production. The industry has played a significant role in the provincial economy for over 40 years and continues to contribute to Saskatchewan’s growth. Recoverable reserves of potash are well over 100 billion tons. With global markets currently in upheaval, Potash explores the interface between politics and the industry, the question of returns to the people of the province, and considers new developments that portend changes to the existing state of affairs. Written by an insider who helped nationalize the industry in the 1970s, John Burton expertly integrates behind-the-scenes accounts of the major players, archival material, and interview sources to produce a book that “cuts through the bull” and adds to our understanding of the world’s greatest fertilizer.
