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.

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.

The pursuit of political power is strategic as never before. Ministers, MPs, and candidates parrot the same catchphrases. The public service has become politicized. And decision making is increasingly centralized in the Prime Minister’s Office. What is happening to our democracy? To get to the bottom of this, Alex Marland reviewed internal political party files, media reports, and documents obtained through access to information requests, and interviewed Ottawa insiders. He discovered that in the face of rapid changes in communication technology, the infusion of corporate marketing strategies has instilled a culture of centralized political control. At the core of the strategy is brand control; at stake is democracy as we know it.

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.
