From Protest to Power: Social Democracy in Canada 1900-Present
This volume, first published in 1992, offers an account of the development of social democracy in Canada from its roots in labour politics and agrarian revolt to the rise of the NDP.
Social democratic governments in Canada have demonstrated that there are realistic alternatives to the business-oriented policies of the Liberals and Conservatives. This book shows how Canadians have developed and supported that alternative approach.
Norman Penner, an authority on the political Left in Canada, is particularly well qualified to describe its history and discuss its current status.
