What People are Saying About This

Michael Burgess

“In this celebration and commemoration of the huge scholarly contribution that Richard Simeon made to federal studies, broadly understood, there is a welcome consistency and congruence of purpose. The editors have made it all the more coherent and cohesive by producing an elegant analytical framework within which to situate the twelve contributions compiled to honour the ‘federalist life’ of one of the truly great scholars in this subject area. The Global Promise of Federalism aptly captures both the scope and spirit of Richard Simeon’s characteristically analytical approach to and understanding of federalism.”

Carol Weissert

Global Promise of Federalism is a terrific addition to federalism scholarship and a charming combination of substance and context, challenges and remembrance, building on the substantial contribution of Richard Simeon dealing with key issues of trust, institutional design, adaptation and traditions. Simeon’s essay on his career will be useful especially to young federalism scholars plying their way in the field. It is helpful, poignant, and entirely Simeon-esque. This is a must-read for Canadian scholars and provides considerable food for thought and challenge for international scholars as well.”

From the Publisher

The Global Promise of Federalism honours the career and achievements of Richard Simeon, Canada’s pre-eminent scholar of federalism, by bringing together the best of Canadian and comparative scholarship on federalism while addressing one of the more compelling themes in the literature, the question of the continuing relevance and promise of this form of government in Canada and abroad.”
