Book Description

Oct. 15 2005
In The Big Red Machine, astute Liberal observer Stephen Clarkson tells the story of the Liberal Party’s performance in the last nine elections, providing essential historical context for each and offering incisive, behind-the-scenes detail about how the party has planned, changed, and executed its successful electoral strategies. Arguing that the Liberal Party has opportunistically straddled the political centre since Sir John A. Macdonald -- leaning left or moving right and as circumstances required -- Clarkson also shows that the party’s grip on power is becoming increasingly uncertain, having lost its appeal not just in the West, but now in Québec. Its campaigns now reflect the splintering of the party system and the integration of Canada into the global economy.

"Reveals insights and realities not available to the casual observer...the shrewd and focused product of a seasoned political scientist [who] asks on that basis the really tough questions." - Senator Hugh Segal, Literary Review of Canada "The Big Red Machine is... alive with clear, bright thinking. Clarkson 'gets' electoral politics." - John Duffy, The Globe and Mail"

Want to know how the Liberal Party maintained itself for so long? Want to relearn the lessons of history to help rebuild the Liberal Party / have the NDP take its place / have the Conservative Party replace the Liberals? Pick up this book. I also recommend The Regional Decline of a National Party : Liberals on the Prairies.
