Canadian Democracyremains the cornerstone of OUP's political science list with its approach focused around the central question, What is the state of democracy in Canada? In this fully revised seventh edition, Stephen Brooks continues to explore the characteristics and controversies associated with Canadian politics, covering the basic elements and structures of government (federalism, the machinery of government, the administrative state). He also addresses the social and economic contexts of the country's politics as well as individuals' and institutions' participation in the system and current issues and challenges in the political arena. Highlights of this revised edition include: a new chapter on the administrative state; a new chapter on women in politics; comprehensive updates throughout to bring readers the latest data, research, and analysis of current events; a newly designed interior and a significantly expanded art program; and more and better-integrated ancillaries to enhance both professors' instruction and students' learning.
