"Provinces" is both a study of Canadian provincial government
and a review of comparative politics. As such, it represents a long
overdue return to the comparative tradition with its emphasis on
subject-specific studies across the country.
The chapters in this revised edition of "Provinces," each of
which has been written for the book by a leading scholar, are
arranged according to four major sections?political life,
institutions, public administration, and public policy?making the
book highly suitable for those interested in areas beyond
provincial politics. At the same time, the adopted comparative
approach reveals a wealth of insight into Canadian politics at the
beginning of the new millennium.
This new edition covers some of the vital concerns of our time:
a disquiet about the quality of democracy, concern about women's
place in provincial societies, interest in the nature and potential
of governance in the north, unease on the question of the fiscal
imbalance between all orders of government, a sensitivity to the
needs of cities and communities, assessment of the retrenchment of
the state, and consideration of the policy futures influenced by
the changing demography of the provinces.
