This book consists of nine analytical essays on the New Democratic Party and its precursor, the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation, each one providing a distinct perspective on the six-decade history of the party. Topics range from the party's manifestos, national conventions, and election compaigns - including a special case study of the 1988 election - to biographical profiles of federal leaders T.C. Douglas, David Lewis, and Ed Broadbent, to the future of socialism. Based on extensive archival research, content analysis of key manifestos and election pamphlets, surveys of the party's activists, and interviews with its strategists and leaders, this comprehensive study will be an essential reference work on the CCF-NDP.
