Published in 1992 during a period of great political ferment in Canada, Constitutional Politics offers a variety of contexts in which to view contemporary constitutional proposals.
This collection of essays provides a description and analysis of the major proposals for constitutional change in 1992, combining a description of the substance of these changes with an analysis of the politics of each proposal. In this way it helps readers understand that constitution making is not simply a technical modification of the structures of government, but rather a way of seeking to achieve political goals and objectives.
With contributions from many of Canada's most incisive political thinkers, Constitutional Politics offers cool analysis of this most heated period in the nation's life.
