"Oligopoly, like international diplomacy, labor-management negotiations, and so on, is one of the speediest and most thrilling of sports."

Games Oligopolists Play features oligopolists playing at Canada's favourite game, along with pointed commentary from noted hockey analysts Brian Mulroney, Jean Chretien and Don Cherry. Handsomely designed and printed, Games Oligopolists Play consists of texts and images collected from economic textbooks and various books and articles on hockey that have been recombined, juxtaposed and ordered by the author in a completely subjective manner. Sharp and funny political/social satire for beginning and advanced fans alike.

Treyf 25th Anniversary edition.

treyf, adj. Yiddish] - not kosher, unclean.

Treyf Books by Rob Kovitz are unusual books of an indeterminate type, sort of story-picture montage-remix books for people who can't stomach any more schmaltzy Chicken Soup for the Soul. Treyf Books are cooked up using texts and images compiled from various sources, usually obsessively related to one or more themes, and then recombined through a process of highly subjective editing, ordering and juxtaposition.

"Strange and clever." - Globe & Mail

"Funny, but deep." - Umbrella

"Is this a new form of discourse in step with its multivalent, chaotic times, or just an excuse for intellectual laziness? Only the author knows for sure." - Canadian Architect
