Overview

An outstanding and useful collection of 24 essays on federalism by a remarkable group of leading Canadian political scientists. Covering such topics as regionalism, the role of the state in Canadian life, bilingualism, the constitution and the charter of rights, communications policy and the role of the media in politics, the book offers a comprehensive view of Canadian federalism. The occasion that inspired this extraordinary meeting of minds was a conference at York University in honour of Donald Smiley, who for over two generations has exerted enormous influence, both through his teaching and through his many writings, on the way in which Canadians view their political system. The book includes four essays on Smiley and the importance of his work, an address by Smiley himself, and a full bibliography of his writings.
