Beschreibung

"Contributed by some of Canada's leading political scientists, the 18 essays of this well-respected collection present an accessible, rigorous, and balanced assessment of Canadian federalism today. New chapters on regionalism, Quebec, and immigration complement updated examinations of such topics as fiscal federalism, the party system, Aboriginal politics, the urban agenda, and environmental policy, making this comprehensive and up-to-date volume an ideal introduction to Canadian federalism in the current political context." -- Page 4 of cover.

Klappentext

Canadian Federalism: Performance, Effectiveness, and Legitimacy, third edition, offers 18 original essays that critically exam the institutions, processes, and policy outcomes of Canadian federalism. Contributed by prominent Canadian political scientists, this collection documents how Canadian intergovernmental relations have evolved in response to key issues-including fiscal deficits, health care and environmental policies-and also evaluates the federal system's ability to meet these challenges.
