Description

The most comprehensive and critical look at Canadian federalism

This restructured and thoroughly updated exploration of Canadian federalism explores the tensions and conflicts within Canada's governance system and the adaptations required for federalism to work. Focusing on three areas - basic federal and intergovernmental structure; the constitutional and institutional framework of the federation; and federal governance - this text is an engaging and balanced treatment of federalism in Canada.

Editorial Reviews

"[This book] covers every salient aspect of the study of federalism in Canada, and does an excellent job at linking theory and concepts to recent developments in Canadian political life. It is very accessible and virtually jargon-free, and ensures that students are able to grasp certain concepts that may be new to them." --Raffaele Iacovino, Carleton University


"The book provides a thorough, readable and up-to-date overview of major themes in Canadian federalism. It reflects the breadth, depth and diversity of expertise of its capable authors. It comes highly recommended." --Kyle Hanniman, Queen's University
