  • A Great Restlessness

    The Life and Politics of Dorise Nielsen

    Faith Johnston (Author)

  • Just One Vote

    From Jim Walding’s Nomination to Constitutional Defeat

    Ian Stewart (Author)

    Combining data drawn from archives, interviews, and the media, Just One Vote is a vivid and exceptionally detailed study of the nomination process. Ian Stewart outlines the geographic, social, and political backdrop behind Walding’s contested party nomination, the unusual chain of events triggered by the contestation, including the fall of the Pawley government and the NDP’s defeat in the 1988 provincial election, and examines the fallout from these events on Manitobans and Canadians.

  • Manitoba Politics and Government

    Issues, Institutions, Traditions

    Paul Thomas (Editor), Curtis Brown (Editor)

    Manitoba has always been a province in the middle, geographically, economically, and culturally. Manitoba Politics and Government brings together the work of political scientists, historians, sociologists, economists, public servants, and journalists to present a comprehensive analysis of the province’s political life and its careful “mutual fund model” approach to economic and social policy that mirrors the steady and cautious nature of its citizens.
