Summary note:
"What is the state of democracy in Canada? This is the central question of Stephen Brooks's best-selling introduction to Canadian politics textbook, Canadian Democracy. In this revised eighth edition, Brooks continues to explore the characteristics and controversies associated with Canadian politics. He begins by addressing the social and economic contexts of the country's politics before covering the basic elements and structures of government (e.g., the constitution, federalism, the administrative state), political participation, and the current issues and challenges in Canadian political life. Highlights of this revised edition include: comprehensive updates throughout to bring readers the latest data, research, and analysis of current events; additional coverage of such topics as French and English Canada relations, the current state of the newspaper and magazine industries, and Canadian foreign policy; and a revised ancillary suite for students and instructors that includes podcasts and video interviews as well as a test generator, an instructor's manual, PowerPoint slides, and a student study guide."-- Provided by publisher.
