Wallace Clement and Glen Williams have ensured that all areas of the field are discussed, with chapters on the state, resources, industrialization, the provinces and regions, labour, gender, culture, Quebec, race and ethnicity, the legal system, capital formation, and Canada's position in the international sphere of political economy.
The editors' introduction defines the field of political economy in the 1980s by comparing it to traditional studies of Innis and others and evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of the new approach. The New Canadian Political Economy suggests important new directions for continued study.
Contributors include: Frances Abele and Daiva Stasiulis, Gregory Albo and Jane Jenson, Isabella Bakker, Amy Bartholomew and Susan Boyd, Janine Brodie, Neil Bradford, Wallace Clement, William D. Coleman, Paul Phillips, Ted Magder, Mel Watkins, and Glen Williams.
