Canadian Politics, Seventh Edition

Gagnon, Alain-G.

Avec James Bickerton

Résumé

For this new edition, James Bickerton and Alain-G. Gagnon have organized the book into six parts. Part I covers the origins and foundations of Canada as a political entity while Part II focuses on Government, Parliament, and the Courts. Part III examines matters pertaining to federalism and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Part IV casts some new light on electoral politics and political communications and Part V examines citizenship, diversity, and social movements. Part VI, the final section of the book, concentrates on a number of political issues that merit special attention on the part of political actors and decision makers, namely the evolving relationship between Canada and Indigenous peoples, immigration and refugees, environment and climate change, and relations between Canada and the United States.

This seventh edition of Canadian Politics includes twelve new chapters, with ten new contributing authors and coverage of six new subjects. It is essential reading for students and specialists studying Canadian politics.
