For this new edition, James Bickerton and Alain-G. Gagnon have organized the book into six parts. Part I covers the origins and foundation of Canada as a political entity while Part II focuses on government, parliament, and the courts. Part III examines matters pertaining to federalism and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Part IV casts some new light on electoral politics and political communications and Part V examines citizenship, diversity, and social movements. Part VI, the final section of the book, concentrates on a number of political issues that merit special attention on the part of political actors and decision makers, namely the evolving relationship between Canada and Indigenous peoples, immigration and refugees, environment and climate change, and relations between Canada and the United States.
This seventh edition of Canadian Politics includes 12 new chapters, with ten new contributing authors and coverage of six new subjects, and is essential reading for students and specialists studying Canadian politics.
"This significantly updated edition is the definitive text on institutions, party politics, and identities in Canada. It is sure to be required reading for both students of Canadian politics and contributors to the comparative turn in Canadian political science."- Arjun Tremblay, University of Regina
"Canadian Politics, Seventh Edition successfully introduces students to contemporary scholars working in the field, as well as multiple primary and secondary sources. Presented as a stand-alone text or as a solid companion to a traditional textbook-driven introductory course, there is no real contemporary equivalent to this volume."- David Tabachnick, Nipissing University
"Timely and relevant, Canadian Politics, Seventh Edition succeeds in summarizing all the major aspects of Canadian government for undergraduates. By alluding to salient recent events, this textbook has the particular merit of treating up-to-date information throughout, particularly in the treatment of Indigenous considerations and climate change."- Conor Barry, St. Thomas University
