Big Worlds : Politics and Elections in the Canadian Provinces and Territories (Paperback)
about this item
The contributors to Big Worlds examine Canada's ten provinces and three territories as distinct, democratic "worlds." A separate chapter is devoted to each province (one chapter explores the three territories), creating a cross-country survey of politics and elections. Tracing the history of each provincial and territorial system, with special attention to the twenty-first century, and drawing on the "worlds" theme, each chapter addresses the "terrain" (political culture, political economy, and political institutions) and the "climate" (party system, civic culture, and democratic deficits) of Canada's provinces and territories.
