Rules of the Game: An Introduction to Canadian Politicsis an accessible and engaging introduction to Canadian politics. Author Hamish Telford presents material from the perspective of a first-time voter: the text starts out simplistically, but the complexity of the material increases with each section, weaving theory, history and questions of diversity through the narrative.

With a conversational tone and an emphasis on understanding the narrative of Canadian politics as a whole,Rules of the Gameprovides students with the vocabulary and conceptual tools to follow politics in the media, engage in political discourse with family and friends, and ultimately to participate in the political process.

Hamish Telford is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of the Fraser Valley. He specializes in the politics of federalism, nationalism and secession.

He can be followed on Twitter @hamishtelford.

Review:

I like that the author is writing from the perspective of the first time voter. Since the text is aimed at first year university students, this is an approach that is perfectly suited to them.

I think [the text] is refreshing and it is very suitable, especially for a class that is not full of political science majors.


-Amanda Burgess, University of Windsor
