Is there a leadership crisis in Canada? How are leaders chosen? What exactly do they do? What is the nature of their relationships with the institutions of political life? This original book answers these questions in a thought-provoking manner. In their knowledgeable assessment of leadership in Canada, the editors focus specifically on recruiting political leaders, the process of governing, and when is the right time for political leaders to leave political office.
