Abstract:

This edited volume presents an integrated comparative examination of the political systems of the United States and Canada-with special attention to the effects of political institutions, and their interaction with political values and other factors, in policymaking. It explores, in particular, the differences between the American presidential (or separation-of-powers) system and the Canadian parliamentary system. It also considers a number of further institutional differences-concerning federalism, bureaucratic leadership, judicial definitions of citizens' rights, and others.
