"The Canadian Federal Election of 2008" is a comprehensive analysis of all aspects of the campaign and election. The chapters, composed by leading political writers, commentators, and pollsters, examine the strategies, successes, and blunders of the major players -- the Conservatives, Liberals, New Democrats, Bloc Quebecois, and Greens -- and also explore the role of the media coverage and the performance and influence of public opinion polls. Special features in this definitive volume explore the way candidates are nominated and the changes in the legislation governing Canadian federal elections. Finally, the book includes a detailed analysis of voting patterns and the rate of voter participation.
