Product Description


"This volume marks an important step in bringing a Canadian perspective to the growing comparative literature on political parties and groups." - Munroe Eagles, SUNY, Buffalo


A first-rate collection of well-writen and carefully executed pieces. Thanks to this book, our knowledge about the Canadian parties, in 'transition,' is clearly in progress.

(Richard Nadeau, Universite de Montreal)|

The release of this substantially revised and updated third edition of Gagnon and Tanguay's important book is particularly welcome at this time. Not only have there been substantial developments in the evolution of the Canadian party system that deserve attention (the consolidation of the political right in the new Conservative Party and the scandals that brought down the Liberals, to mention only two), but there have been a number of important shifts in the context and rules of party competition that have also occurred in the decade that has passed since the second edition appeared. Of particular note are the substantial efforts that the contributors make to place Canadian developments within a broader comparative framework, drawn from theories of realignment/dealignment, value change, party decline, political communication, cartel party theory, or civic engagement and literacy. As a result, this volume marks an important step in bringing a Canadian perspective to the growing comparative literature on political parties and groups.

(Munroe Eagles, SUNY, Buffalo)
