Lucid and comprehensive, The Canadian Regime provides a unique analysis of Canada’s political regime by challenging readers to think of the political system as an organic entity where change in one area inevitably ripples through the rest of the system. The book’s focus on the inner logic of parliamentary government explains the rationale for Canada’s relatively complex political system. The new edition includes analysis of the 2011 federal election and the implications of a return to majority government rule. Discussions of the Constitution, Charter, Senate reform, and judicial appointments are all updated, and new material is provided on the prorogation controversy, voter turnout, equalization payments, and prime ministerial government. The Canadian Regime continues to provide the most accessible introduction to the institutions, processes, and principles of the Canadian political system.

Now in its sixth edition, The Canadian Regime continues to provide the most accessible introduction to the institutions, processes, and principles of the Canadian political system. The book's focus on the inner logic of parliamentary government explains the rationale for Canada's relatively complex political system, which the authors encourage readers to think of as an organic entity, where change in one area inevitably ripples through the rest of the system. The new edition includes the results of Canada’s 2015 federal election and looks ahead to consider changes resulting from the Liberal victory. It has been thoroughly updated and revised and introduces several new topics, such as the impact of the previous Conservative government on the conventions and practices of parliamentary government and the important influence of social media on politics. Two new co-authors, Gerald Baier and Thomas M.J. Bateman, join Patrick Malcolmson and Richard Myers to bring new expertise in the areas of federalism, judicial politics, Charter jurisprudence, political parties, and the ongoing health care debate.

Its many illustrative examples reflect today?s political realities, and are set forth in a meaningful web of inferences and generalizations about the larger domain, ensuring better results than either an abstract discussion of general principles or an encyclopedic recitation of isolated facts.

The sixth edition of Canadian Politics offers a comprehensive introduction to Canadian government and politics by a highly respected group of political scientists. For this edition, the editors have organized the book into six parts. Part I examines Canadian citizenship and political identities, while Parts II and III deal with Canadian political institutions, including Aboriginal governments, and contain new chapters on the public service and Quebec. Parts IV and V shift the focus to the political process, discussing issues pertaining to culture and values, parties and elections, media, groups, movements, gender, and diversity. The chapters on Parliament, bureaucracy, political culture, political communications, social movements, and media are new to this edition. Finally, three chapters in the last section of the book analyze components of Canadian politics that have been gaining prominence during the last decade: the effects of globalization, the shifting ground of Canadian-American relations, and the place of Canada in the changing world order. Of the 21 chapters in this edition, 9 are new and the remainder have been thoroughly revised and updated.

In 2013, the government abolished the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), which had been Canada’s flagship foreign aid agency for decades, and transferred its functions to the newly renamed Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD). As the government is rethinking Canadian aid and its relationship with other foreign policy and commercial objectives, the time is ripe to rethink Canadian aid more broadly. Edited by Stephen Brown, Molly den Heyer and David R. Black, this is the first book on Canadian foreign aid since CIDA was folded into DFATD. Designed to reach a variety of audiences, contributions by twenty-one scholars and experts in the field offer an incisive examination of Canada’s record and recent changes in Canadian foreign aid, such as its focus on maternal and child health and on the extractive sector. Many chapters also ask more fundamental questions concerning the intersection of the moral imperative that underpins aid and the trend towards greater self-interest. For instance, what are and what should be the underlying motives of Canadian aid? How compatible are altruism and self-interest in foreign aid? To what extent should aid be integrated with Canada’s other policies and practices? The portrait that emerges is a sobering one. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in Canada’s changing role in the world and how it reflects on Canada.

This is the first comprehensive survey of the colourful ceramic tiles produced by Morris & Company. From the earliest examples made for Red House to the tiles produced in the twentieth century, all the many different designs are illustrated and discussed in detail. Richard and Hilary Myers are proud to include a previously unrecorded tile panel among the many little-known examples described in this book. Found in a Sussex church, the panel takes its place with such masterpieces as the overmantel at Queens' College, Cambridge, and the Membland panels. All Morris & Co.'s tile designs are analysed and linked to related stained-glass, textile or graphic work produced by the Firm. The authors reveal the various contributions of individual designers, including Edward Burne-Jones, D. G. Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, Kate Faulkner and William Morris himself. Morris & Co.'s connections with the Dutch tileries, William de Morgan, Murray Marks and Barnard, Bishop & Barnard, and the roles they played in the production and distribution of the tiles, are all thoroughly examined.
