Island House Press
Island House Press is a small Toronto-based press that originated forty years ago as an independent vehicle to publish volumes of poetry. Recently, it underwent a change in ownership and a rebirth in purpose. Its co-owners, Terrance Quinn (PhD, MSc, BSc) and John Benton (MA, BEd, BA) have introduced a new kind of journalism to its publications – a fusion of journalistic and scholarly writing that not only appeals to a wide audience without implying simplification, but also encourages scholars at all levels to work gradually toward the distant goal of "reading on the level of the times." These publications envision a time when ecologies are cared for, and when economies, cultures and education promote leisure and human creativity with fresh solutions to concrete problems. Its most recent title, Economics Actually: Today and Tomorrow. Sustainable and Inclusive. co-authored by Quinn and Benton, introduces a structure for economic science that has not yet been picked up by professional economists. Forthcoming titles include Bent On Futurology’s Journeyism Series and A Student Guide Towards Luminous Theoretical Understanding in Two-Flow Economics.
"Quinn and Benton’s tapestry of clear explanations, concrete examples, insightful analyses, sound arguments, pithy criticisms, and sensible suggestions certainly provide the needed basis to get us on our way to conceiving and realizing sane and sustainable economies and lives."
