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.

Editorial Reviews

"Will make a useful contribution to the literature of political economy. Indeed, in the absence of any single text-book in the field, the present collection promises to make good the gap." Philip Resnick, Department of Political Science, University of British Columbia.
"It is high time that political economists took stock and tried to offer students a volume in which their unique contributions are accessible...this volume succeeds in doing that." Michael Atkinson, Department of Political Science, McMaster University.
