Issue 35 Book Reviews

Screenshot 2014-06-24 11.19.23 Inroads 35 came out in the wake of the Quebec election that brought down Pauline Marois’s short-lived Parti Québécois government and returned the Quebec Liberals to power. A major section examines the reasons for this result and especially the question of secularism, which was a major part of the PQ’s platform and is sure to reemerge in some form despite its defeat. Other articles look at medical aid in dying; exchange rates and Canada’s monetary policy; the centenary of the First World War; and Stephen Harper, whom political scientist Garth Stevenson compares to Canada’s longest-serving prime minister, Mackenzie King.
