The Methodist church on the Prairies, 1896-1914 by George Neil Emery( file )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 1,256 libraries worldwide
"In The Methodist Church on the Prairies, 1896-1914, George Emery uses quantitative methods and social interpretation to show that the Methodist Church was a cross-class institution with a dynamic evangelical culture, not a middle-class institution whose culture was undergoing secularization. He describes its impressive achievements and shows that they compare favourably with those of the Presbyterians and Anglicans."--Jacket

A young man's benefit the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and sickness insurance in the United States and Canada, 1860-1929 by George Neil Emery( file )
7 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 860 libraries worldwide
"Using cliometric methods and records from six grand-lodge archives, A Young Man's Benefit rejects the conventional wisdom about friendly societies and sickness insurance, arguing that 100F lodges were financially sound institutions, were more efficient than commercial insurers, and met a market demand headed by young men who lacked alternatives to market insurance, not older men who had above average risk of sickness disability." "George Emery and Herbert Emery show that many young men joined the Odd Fellows for sickness insurance and quit the society once self-insurance - savings - or family insurancesecondary incomes from older children - became feasible for them. The older men who valued the social benefits of membership and did not need the sick benefit gradually became a majority and dismantled the IOOF's insurance provisions."--Jacket
Elections in oxford county, 1837-1875 a case study of democracy in canada west and early ontario by George Neil Emery( file )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 652 libraries worldwide
Elections in Oxford County, 1837-75 breaks new ground with its detailed treatment of the county's voice-vote method of election, which ended with the adoption of the secret ballot in 1874. Employing an idealized parliamentary democracy as an explanatory model, Emery captures both geographically specific details and general features of this era's electoral process to enrich current understandings of nineteenth-century Canadian democracy."--Pub. desc
