The year 1991 found Canada at a crossroads. The nation faced the aftermath of the Oka crisis and failure of the Meech Lake Accord; the Bloc Qu b cois sought official party status in the House of Commons and the Reform Party decided to become a national party; talks began for a North American free trade agreement. On the international front, Canada went to war in the Persian Gulf and responded to the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

Featuring essays on Parliament and politics, Ottawa and the provinces, and external affairs, the Canadian Annual Review of Politics and Public Affairs provides a comprehensive account of the year's events.

The Canadian Annual Review has long been praised for its excellence. Known for its accuracy, readability, and insight, it offers a synoptic appraisal of the year's crises, controversies, and developments from both federal and provincial perspectives.
