This go-to resource is a useful reference guide for students and scholars, for new and lower-ranking public servants, or for anyone who wants to know more about how government really works. Grounded in experience, the book connects building blocks in political science and public administration to the real-world practice of government in Canada. Topics range from core concepts and theories to the messy realities of governing, the art of diplomacy, and tips for climbing the career ladder. The writing is accessible and concise, employing infographics, tables, and other helpful means of summarizing the traditionally complex concepts at play in Canadian politics."--"@en ;
