Dynasties and Interludes

The Liberals had few areas they could count on, despite their dynastic status. Even support in Quebec was no longer assured, since the party was no longer led by a “native son” but by an English Canadian.

This revised and updated second edition includes an analysis of the results of the 2011 and 2015 federal elections as well as an in-depth discussion of the “Harper Dynasty.”

Fighting the People's War is an unprecedented, panoramic history of the 'citizen armies' of the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand and South Africa, the core of the British and Commonwealth armies in the Second World War. Drawing on new sources to reveal the true wartime experience of the ordinary rank and file, Jonathan Fennell fundamentally challenges our understanding of the War and of the relationship between conflict and socio-political change. He uncovers how fractures on the home front had profound implications for the performance of the British and Commonwealth armies and he traces how soldiers' political beliefs, many of which emerged as a consequence of their combat experience, proved instrumental to the socio-political changes of the postwar era. Fighting the People's War transforms our understanding of how the great battles were won and lost as well as how the postwar societies were forged.

The Canadian federal election of 2019 is extensively analyzed in this collaborative volume edited by Jon Pammett and Christopher Dornan. Bringing together leading political scientists and media scholars, the book examines the strategies, successes, and failures of each of Canada's major political parties, with special attention given to the pressing question of climate change. In Canadian elections, the context of the campaign is vital. Here, contributors consider in detail the way public opinion polls were reported leading up to the election, how traditional media portrayed events, why the electorate waited to make up their minds, and the means by which social media dealt with fears of a disinformation wave. The book uses data to identify the important factors in determining the voting behaviour of Canadians in 2019 and the ways these factors combined to produce a minority Liberal government. The Canadian Federal Election of 2019 is the essential resource for every interested political observer wanting to dissect the last election and required reading to prepare for the next one.

Much of Canada’s modern identity emerged from the innovative social policies and ambitious foreign policy of Louis St-Laurent’s Liberal government. His extraordinarily creative administration made decisions that still resonate today: on health care, pensions, and housing; on infrastructure and intergovernmental issues; and, further afield, in developing Canada’s global middle-power role in global affairs and resolving the Suez Crisis. Yet St-Laurent remains an enigmatic figure. The Unexpected Louis St-Laurent fills a great void in Canadian political history, bringing together well-established and new scholars to investigate the far-reaching influence of a politician whose astute policies and bold resolve moved Canada into the modern era.
