In Canadian Democracy Stephen Brooks explores the characteristics, complexities, and controversies associated with Canada's politics. Introducing the basic ideas, institutions, and processes of Canadian politics, he asks questions about the nature of Canadian democracy and focuses on issues of individual, group, and regional equality and freedom. Chapters on language politics, diversity in Canadian society, and Canada in the world cover issues at the core of contemporary debates on the quality of Canadian democracy. All aspects of the book have been thoroughly updated for this fourth edition, which includes numerous new tables and figures, editorial cartoons on Canadian politics, and an expanded glossary of key terms.
