Political Support in Canada : The Crisis Years, Hardback Book

Political Support in Canada : The Crisis Years Hardback

Edited by Allan Kornberg, Harold D. Clarke

Part of the Duke University Center for International Studies Publications series

Description

All governments require popular support, and in democracies this support must be maintained by noncoercive means.

This book analyzes the question of political support in Canada, a country in which the maintenance of the integrity of the political community has been and continues to be, in the words of the editors, "the single most salient aspect of the country's political life."The nature of popular support is first considered in broad, theoretical terms, then from the standpoint of those agents most responsible for maintaining support in Canadian democracy, then as influenced by particular issues and policies, and finally as it affects and is affected by the separatist movement in Quebec.
