From the Back Cover:

Understanding Canadian Federalism provides an accessible and straightforward overview of the complex world of Canadian federalism and intergovernmental relations. Unlike other texts in the discipline, it employs appropriate pedagogy and language specific to undergraduate studies and utilizes an interrogative style to make the topic a more lively and engaging experience for students.

 

"There has been a gaping hole in recent federalism literature which draws the connections between political economy and the development of federalism in Canada—I am thrilled that there is a new text on the subject....The dynamism offered by political economy and developed in this text is exciting to read and offers sophistication and nuances that are otherwise unknown to students."

--Holly Gibbs, Department of Social Sciences, Political Science, and Public Policy, University of Toronto Scarborough
