What People are Saying About This

Daniel Beland

“In explaining why Canada lacks national, universal pharmaceutical insurance coverage, Ideas and the Pace of Change formulates an original framework for the analysis of policy change. Katherine Boothe’s empirical analysis is impeccably grounded in systematic archival research, as well as abundant interview and polling data.”

Grace Skogstad

Ideas and the Pace of Change is a real pleasure to read. Boothe’s attention to measuring and documenting how ideas affect policy development is impressive, and her work will be of interest to both academics and policy practitioners.”
