The pages have been recomposed in the original right-to-left reading order and restored to the highest quality. Each volume contains three of the original graphic novels, along with gorgeous, full-color illustrations never before published outside Japan! As the gears of fate turn, Kamui draws ever closer to the moment when he must make his inevitable choice: become either humanity’s savior or its scourge. After his last surviving blood relative sacrifices herself to bring forth the Sacred Sword, the weapon he will need in the war to come, that moment finally arrives. With Kamui’s decision, however, come unimaginable consequences for Fuma and Kotori. Meanwhile, the members of both sides of the conflict—the Dragons of Heaven and the Dragons of Earth—converge on Tokyo, obeying the call of their intertwined destinies. Among them is Subaru Sumeragi, a powerful magic user, who arrives just in time to help Kamui see the path that he must take. But Subaru must conquer his own doubts and fears when he’s finally reunited with the one person who is truly special to him—and whom he must fight to the death.

The Satellite Sex

The Media and Women's Issues in English Canada, 1966-1971

In this provocative new book -- the first one to examine print and broadcast news coverage of women's issues in English Canada -- Barbara Freeman explores what the media were saying about women and their concerns during an important period in our history -- and why. The Satellite Sex is both a social history and a media case study of the years 1966-1971, when the feminist movement began once more to gather support. Women wanted equal treatment under the law, and they wanted rights they had not gained when they won the vote many years earlier. In response, the Canadian government appointed a federal inquiry on the status of women, and hundreds of women came forward to talk to the Commission about the injustices they experienced at school, at work, in public life, in their homes, and even in their bedrooms. The Satellite Sex demonstrates that the print and broadcast media coverage of women's issues at that time were much more complex and fragmented than revealed by research in the United States on the same era. This book, released thirty years after the Canadian Commission presented its report, also raises questions about the lack of strong feminist voices in today's news media.
