Despite the fact it's a textbook, it's a wonderful look Canadian government. With frequent comparisons to the United States, it is helpful in understanding how Western democracies play off each other. Each has their own pros and cons to government.

Though this was a textbook for one of m courses, it was probably one of my most favourite to read. The book thoroughly explains and examines the Canadian system/government. It is easy to read and understand for beginners in politics or those who know almost nothing about Canadian politics. The comparison to American and British politics was a nice touch as well.

An easy-to-understand book, that explains very much everything about somehow confusing Canadian political system. It shows that this system, like the British one, has been built based on constitutional convention.
