by Douglas V. Verney

Condition: See description

Durham, NC Duke University Press, 1986. Hardcover First Edition [1986], unstated. Near Fine in Very Near Fine DJ: The Book shows just a hint of crimping at the head of the backstrip; faint indications of shelving along the bottom edge; else flawless. Binding square and secure; text clean. The DJ shows just a touch of wear at corner tips; sticker-shadow and a bit of scuffing where the sticker has been removed at the upper front panel; else flawless; mylar-protected. No longer pristine, but remains close to 'As New'. This is a REMAINDER, showing a mark at the top edge. NOT a Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. xiii, 454 p., [1] leaf of plates: map. Duke University Center for International Studies Publications. First Edition [1986], unstated. Hardback with DJ. This volume examines 150 years of Canadian political life in light if one of the country's most intractable problems, its cultural identity. Although many thoughtful Canadians remain dubious about the existence of a truly Canadian way of life, Douglas Verney argues that in fact Canada's political traditions embody and reflect a unique culture; and that although the Canadian government has been the primary instrument for nurturing this culture, it has been at the same time the entity most guilty of obscuring and ignoring it.
