A City with a Difference
25,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

The Montreal Citizen's Movement, a municipal party created in May 1974, was a broad coalition that included members of major trade unions, Parti Qu+b+cois militants, the Quebec wing of the federal New Democratic Party (NDP), independent radicals, and a significant number of Anglophone intellectuals. In its twelve years in opposition (1974-1986) and its two terms in power (ending in 1995), the MCM had a powerful influence on both the policy and process of Montreal's municipal government. A City With a Difference describes how different types of political activists function within populist political parties -- pragmatists, ideologues, party strategists, and citizens seeking involvement in the workings of their city. The author demonstrates that the MCM is what Herbert Kitschelt calls a left-libertarian party with electoral pragmatists co-existing with ideologically-driven social activists within the same political structure. From the years in opposition to the years in power, Thomas chronicles the MCM's triumphs, failures, conflicts, and compromises. This is a fascinating case study with relevance for other cities.

Right Turn
8,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

It wasn't so much a big blue machine that chugged its way across Ontario's political landscape in the spring of 1995 - it was more a big purple bulldozer driven by leader Mike Harris and a new breed of Tories. Gone were the pinstripes and the cigar-chomping backroom boys of the forty-two years of Tory rule. These Tories were young, hip, and they were riding the wave of their Common Sense Revolution, a platform launched a year earlier. Still, there were only a few who thought the PCs stood a chance of winning the Ontario provincial election. Though Bob Rae's NDP government was foundering, Lyn McLeod and the Liberals were holding what looked like a steady two-to-one lead in the polls. Relying on a combination of video tapes, clever advertising, and a brilliant campaign plan, the Harris team turned it all around, pulling off one of the most stunning upsets in Canadian political history. Right Turn tells the story.

Hope Is Better Than Fear (e-book original)
7,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An e-book original inspired by the vision of late NDP leader Jack Layton with short, personal essays by a diverse line-up of Canadian writers and activists. HOPE IS BETTER THAN FEAR reflects upon and looks forward on a number of issues that Jack Layton championed over the course of his extraordinary career as an activist, city councillor and federal politician, including homelessness, feminism, civic engagement, the environment and--very dear to his heart--the Native experience, which is why Random House of Canada is donating its net proceeds from the sale of this e-book to aboriginal youth initiatives, as designated by his widow, the MP Olivia Chow. Taking up the charge to inspire and challenge readers and tap into Jack's energy, optimism and drive, contributors Tzeporah Berman, Jane Doe, Pierre-Luc Dusseault, David Miller, Rex Murphy and Steven Page, among others, pay tribute to Jack's record and point out what we need to do next. With this book, we are both honouring his life and work and paying Jack forward.

The Top Secret Conservative Handbook

We don't have to ask whether Stephen Harper's Conservatives have a top secret manual for controlling parliament because that scandal broke years ago, unfortunately they've never released it (or anything else for that matter). Thankfully we've been able to reverse engineer the various 'White Papers' they're using to ruin things from what they've said, done, bragged about, and lorded over us. And to help you become the Ultimate Insider we've included earlier drafts and footnotes giving even more insight into the fluid state of the very modern Canadian Conservative. Now you too can know more than you should about: 'The In & Out Scandal'; 'Inserting your Member in Parliament'; and why no matter how popular Mulcair becomes, 'The Enemy of My Enemy is My NDP'. Then you'll be ready to sing along next year, when we present: THE TOP SECRET CONSERVATIVE HANDBOOK - THE MUSICAL! * * Musical subject to Parliamentary approval

The Candidate
27,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A comical and revealing account of what it's like to run for office with no political experience, little money and only a faint hope of winning, told first-hand by celebrated writer Noah Richler. During the 2015 federal election, approximately 1200 political campaigns were held across Canada. One of those campaigns belonged to author, journalist and political neophyte Noah Richler. Recruited by the NDP to run in the bellwether riding of Toronto-St Paul's, he was handed $350 and told he would lose. But as veteran NDP activists and social-media-savvy newbies joined his campaign, Richler found himself increasingly insulated from the stark reality that his campaign was flailing, imagining instead that he was headed to Parliament Hill. In The Candidate, Richler recounts his time on the trail in sizzling detail and hilarious frankness, from door knocking in Little Jamaica to being internet-shamed by experienced opponents. The Candidate lays bare what goes on behind the slogans, canvassing and talking points, told from the perspective of a political outsider. With his signature wit and probing eye, Noah Richler's chronicle of running for office is insightful, brutally honest and devastatingly funny.
