Product Description


This book is a good introduction to civil liberty and human rights advocacy, and to important issues facing Canadian social movements. It is well suited to upper level undergraduate courses and for those researching and teaching on the history of Canadian mobilization. It also has the potential to spark debate over Canadian SMO dependence on federal government funding.


Canada's Rights Revolution is a major contribution to the historical and sociological literature on human rights in Canada. It is comprehensive, well organized, and makes a persuasive argument about the nature of human rights activism through the framework of social movements theory.

(Brian Howe, author of Restraining Equality: Human Rights Commissions in Canada)|

Rights advocacy is a topic of immense practical and historical significance. Dominique Clément does Canadian researchers a great service with this impressive historical analysis of leading social—movement organizations that have made rights advocacy their stated aim. This is important and original scholarship, to be sure.

(Matt James, author of Misrecognized Materialists: Social Movements in Canadian Constitutional Politics)
