McGill-Queens University Press, Montreal and Kingston, 2014, ISBN:9780773543331 
DOERN, G. Bruce, Michael J. PRINCE, and Richard J. SCHULTZ. Rules and Unruliness : Canadian Regulatory Democracy, Governance, Capitalism, and Welfarism. Montreal and Kingston: McGill-Queens University Press, (2014). First Paperback Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xv,(3),[3]-397,(3). 8vo, illustrated blue and yellow card covers with white lettering to front cover and spine. "Analyzing regulatory politics and governance in Canada from the beginning of Pierre Trudeau's era to Stephen Harper's government, the authors present a compelling argument that current regulation of the economy, business, and markets is no longer adequate to protect Canadians. They examine rules embedded in public spending programs and rules regarding political parties and parliamentary government. They also look at regulatory capitalism to elucidate how Canada and most other advanced economies can be characterized by co-governance and co-regulation between governments, corporations, and business interest groups. Bringing together literature on public policy, regulation, and democracy, 'Rules and Unrulines' is the first major study to show how and why increasing unruliness affects not only the regulation of economic affairs, but also the social welfare state, law and order, parliamentary democracy, and the changing face of global capitalism." - from the rear cover. Very good. 25.00
