Three members of the Faculty of Education – Dr. Gerald Galway, Dr. John Hoben and Dr. Elizabeth Yeoman – contributed chapters to The Democracy Cookbook: Recipes to Renew Governance in Newfoundland and Labrador, which will be launched in paperback Nov. 21.

A collection of more than 85 essays, poems and politically themed recipes from a variety of writers, including academics, students and journalists, The Democracy Cookbook engages readers in a debate about how democracies should evolve.

Dr. Galway, interim associate dean of the faculty’s undergraduate programs, contributed an essay entitled “Re-Democratizing School Governance in Newfoundland and Labrador.”

Dr. Yeoman penned an essay entitled “Ministers and Citizens Walking Together,” while Dr. Hoben’s essay is entitled “Educating Tomorrow’s Citizens in Today’s University.”

ISER Books is hosting the book launch celebration scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at R. Gushue Hall, St. John’s campus. All are welcome to attend. Copies of The Democracy Cookbook will be available for $19.49.

The book was co-edited by Dr. Alex Marland, a political scientist in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, and Lisa Moore, author and professor in Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Both editors also contributed essays.

ISER Books is the publishing division of the Institute of Social and Economic Research in Memorial’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
