"Prime Ministers in Power investigates prime ministerial predominance in Britain and Australia. It is a timely addition to the scholarly material on political leadership, adding a comparative dimension by using case study analysis of two prime ministers in similar political systems. How did these two prime ministers establish such predominant positions? How far can prime ministers stretch the institutions within which they work and how much of an impact does the office-holder have on the office? What conclusions can be drawn from the comparison of the two prime ministers? What are the consequences and costs of such predominance?"--publisher website.

Britain has one of the oldest and most developed democracies on earth. It is admired and copied the world over. Yet at home British politics is frequently viewed with a mixture of derision and contempt. Why? Our democratic system may be mature but the politicians we elect and the media we rely on to tell us what they are up to often behave like difficult teenagers, calling each other names, arguing for the sake of argument and pointing the finger of blame rather than accepting responsibility. Little wonder that the public switches off, tired of all the racket and fed up with the lot of them. How did we get into this sorry state, or was it ever thus? With first-hand experience of the worlds of both journalism and politics, Lance Price looks back over almost a century of battles between the media and our political leaders to find out who is to blame. He exposes liars in Downing Street and scoundrels in Fleet Street, bullies and megalomaniacs in both. There are many wiser heads, too, who see the madness and try to find a better way of doing things. Yet are all in pursuit of the same objective? Power. They want power over each other and power over the rest of us. It is a battle without end and too often the truth is the first casualty. Where Power Liesis the story of how powerful men and women have tried for generations to twist the facts to their own ends. It puts the struggle for supremacy between journalists and politicians into perspective. And it offers a glimmer of hope for a future in which both sides grow up, learn to respect each other and trust the rest of us with that most precious of all commodities, the truth.

The image of the scrum – a beleaguered politican surrounded by jockeying reporters – is central to our perception of Ottawa. The modern scrum began with the arrival of television, but even in Sir John A. Macdonald’s day, a century earlier, reporters in the parliamentary press gallery had waited outside the prime minister’s office, pen in hand, hoping for a quote for the next edition. The scrum represents the test of wills, the contest of wits, and the battle for control that have characterized the relationship between Canadian prime ministers and journalists for more than 125 years. Scrum Wars chronicles this relationship. It is an anecdotal as well as analytical account, showing how earlier prime ministers like Sir John A. Macdonald and Sir Wilfrid Laurier were able to exercise control over what was written about their administrators, while more recent leaders like John Diefenbaker, Joe Clark, John Turner, and Brian Mulroney often found themselves at the mercy of intense media scrutiny and comment.

Prime Ministers in Canada have provided critical leadership in defending Canada, as an independent and sovereign country in North America, and in general, as a strong and united nation. Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada's first Prime Minister, for example, championed the development of a transcontinental railway, linking Canada from sea to sea (the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean), against threats of manifest destiny by the United States. Lester B. Pearson, for example, helped champion Canada's leadership in constructive internationalism via the United Nations, as an international peacekeeper, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, for example, championed the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, as a critical contribution to civil rights and human rights in association with constitutional law. This book supports a critical appreciation of political leadership by Prime Ministers of Canada, via their speeches, in association with Canadian political history, and social constitutional development. The editor of the book presents constitutional and other social cultural values that have been defended by Prime Ministers of Canada in the nation building of Canada, and that have been threatened by the "Neo-Duplessis" Jean Chretian Prime Ministerial administration. The Editor of the cited book is a member of the University of Toronto community, including Heads of State for Canada since the seventeenth century. Please note: The cited book already includes an appendix with a proposed 'Canadian Language Act'. Includes also a speech by 'Prime Ministerial candidate X' concerning a proposed Canadian transcontinental bullet train network.

This the only authorized biography of New Zealand’s prime minister, Robert Muldoon—one of the dominant political figures of the last half-century in that country. Based on many hours of conversation with Muldoon himself as well as colleagues, friends, and family, and wide access to the prime minister’s official and private papers and diaries, this book has been awarded the Ian Wards Prize for published historical writing. Muldoon is shown as a champion of the ordinary people whose vision over time became anachronistic and inflexible. The book is also a fascinating picture of New Zealand’s changing political landscape from the 1940s to the 1980s.

Streamlined and rewritten to meet the needs of the market, Parameters of Power now fits the one-term Canadian Politics course much better, and is more balanced than ever before! The defining questions of modern Canadian politics are about institutions and the ways in which they shape our political life. Capturing the underlying logic of federalism, the Charter of Rights, electoral systems and many other areas, Parameters of Power tries to make sense of issues as they move dynamically from one institutional arena to the next. By giving social and cultural factors greater prominence, the third edition recognizes Canada's social diversity and inequalities much more so than any competing text.

This book describes the rise of independent mass media in Russia, from the loosening of censorship under Gorbachev's policy of glasnost to the proliferation of independent newspapers and the rise of media barons during the Yeltsin years. The role of the Internet, the impact of the 1998 financial crisis, the succession of Putin, and the effort to reimpose central power over privately controlled media empires mark the end of the first decade of a Russian free press. Throughout the book, there is a focus on the close intermingling of political power and media power, as the propaganda function of the press in fact never disappeared, but rather has been harnessed to multiple and conflicting ideological interests. More than a guide to the volatile Russian media scene and its players, Media and Power in Post-Soviet Russia poses questions of importance and relevance in any functioning democracy.

Eden Suez and the Mass Media

This work looks at the way the media in Britain can, in times of crisis, be used as an instrument of propaganda. Through a study of the Eden Government's battle for the hearts and minds of the British and American people during the 1956 Suez Crisis, Tony Shaw dispels the myth that the BBC and Fleet Street were passive observers of events and faithfully reflected public opinion. Using government documents and media sources, he explores Eden's efforts to create a climate of opinion for military action against Egypt, and the war of nerves against the Nasser regime that followed. Arguing that, despite his reputation as one of Fleet Street's most celebrated victims, Eden was a remarkably successful propagandist, Shaw attributes this success to the unhealthy intimacy between the press and government in Britain, Fleet Street's over-willingness to censor itself, and the government's efforts to turn the BBC into a straight organ of propaganda. The book includes an interesting comparison between Eden's propaganda policy and Thatcher's during the 1982 Falklands Crisis.
