Private-Sector Involvement in the Federal Provincial Health Care System
"A rare contribution to Canadians studies——a most welcome addition to scholarly works in this field. A bonus: the chapter on Quebec. It is extremely useful for teaching because there is so little written about this French-speaking province. Many studies omit Quebec because it is so hard to find material in English ... this alone makes the book extremely valuable to scholars." - Publius: The Journal of Federalism

Most books on the presidency focus on issues of presidential leadership, presidential greatness, or influence over policy, but none compares how presidents have responded to the political challenges confronting them.

A Social Approach to Freedom of Expression
This book presents arguments that freedom of expression in the twenty-first century can be approached as a social phenomenon through the application of sociological theory. Existing approaches are either confined to political communication or focus on individual wellbeing. In this book, sociological arguments for freedom of expression are derived from both Emile Durkheim’s classical social theory and the contemporary theories of Jurgen Habermas. Application of these theories demonstrates that freedom of speech is essential from a societal point of view.
