Book Description

June 4 2012

The strength of the Tea Party and Religious Right in the United States, alongside the Harper Conservatives’ stance on same-sex marriage and religious freedom in Canada, has many asking whether social conservatism has come to define the right wing of North American politics.

In this timely and penetrating book, James Farney provides the first full-length comparison of social conservatism in Canada and the United States from the sexual revolution to the present day. Based on archival research and extensive interviews, it traces the historic relationship between social conservatives and other right-wing groups. Farney illuminates why the American Republican Party was quicker to accept social conservatives as legitimate and valuable allies than the Conservative Party of Canada.

This book will be indispensable for understanding why a movement so powerful amongst American conservatives has been distinctively less important in Canada and how the character of Canadian conservatism means it will likely remain so.

Product Description

Review

‘This book offers a clearly written, informative, and valuable historical account of the social conservative movement in Canada and the United States over the last forty years. It is sure to be well received by both academics and the broader public thanks to its neutral tone and perspective – so often lacking in discussions of social conservatives and politics – and will make a real and lasting contribution on a subject where there has been a clear need.’ (Paul Saurette, Department of Political Studies, University of Ottawa)
