This collection of twenty-three articles by leading Canadian scholars provides a comprehensive supplementary text for Canadian Politics courses. Re-Inventing Canada addresses the major issues that define Canada's current political culture, including globalization, race, disability, immigration, environment, and foreign policy. While the articles cover a wide range of topics, editors Janine Brodie and Linda Trimble provide students with a detailed overview of the overriding theme of "re-inventing Canada." Furthermore, Brodie and Trimble have carefully organized the selection of articles according to the following subsections: Re-Thinking Community, Re-Casting Identities and Citizenship, Re-Inventing Governance, and Re-Drawing Boundaries.
