Just as textile mills and automotive assembly plants have symbolized previous economic eras, the call centre stands as a potent reminder of the importance of information in contemporary economies. Bob Russell's Smiling Down the Line theorizes call centre work as info-service employment and looks at the effects of ever-changing technologies on service work, its associated skills, and the ways in which it is managed. Russell also considers globalization and contemporary managerial practices as centres are outsourced to poorer countries such as India and as new forms of management are introduced, refined, and discarded. Invoking extensive labour force surveys and interviews from Australia and India, Russell examines employee representation, work intensity, stress, emotional labour, and job skills in the call centre work environment. The cross-national approach of Smiling Down the Line highlights the effects of globalization and scrutinizes the similarities and differences that exist in info-service work between different industries and in different countries.

Between the Fourth Meridian and the Continental Divide is a vast land with some of the most varied landscapes, difficult terrain, and treacherous climates in Canada. The challenge of exploring, surveying and mapping the territory now known as Alberta holds some of the most fascinating stories in the 100-year-old province's history. From the first excursions of David Thompson and John Palliser to the ongoing work of surveying for industry and development, from the first hand-drawn maps and sextants to modern satellite imaging and computer modeling, historian Judy Larmour captures the grand arcs and the fascinating details of the dramatic centuries-long struggle to find and mark place.

Balance is something we all strive to achieve but few actually obtain. For a chef, balance is often a figment of one's imagination but for Jack Cahill, it had finally become his reality. Four years after Jack's public collapse while opening New York's most prestigious restaurant, Byzantine, he found solace in the mountains of upstate New York and had built a tranquil existence with his true love Karen. Jack continued to cook and his food continued to shine, so much so that he received a distinguished national award honoring his ever-evolving fare. Once the news broke, it didn't take long for his old mentor, restaurant mogul Victor Payne to seek Jack out. Victor had always respected Jack's talent and was committed to do whatever it took to ensure Jack finally became New York's most recognized chef. Victor's offer was impossible to refuse and Jack agrees to return to the city, unaware of just how far off course his restaurants had drifted. While Jack tries to put the pieces of Victor's once dominant empire back together, his all-in existence has him slipping back into his old ways. Early mornings, long days and late nights begin to take a strain on his now fragile relationship with Karen. With his home life suffering, he keeps his focus on his kitchens that were being run by the skilled but underhanded Hank Carter, who was slowly undoing all that Jack and Victor were trying to achieve. Sleepless nights, new found celebrity and a slew of pitfalls has Jack's life in a tailspin. No matter what was thrown at him, the young chef was not going to repeat the same mistakes he had made before. This time nothing would stand in his way and he was determined to have it all, even if having it all might cost him everything.
