The quintessential debate-style reader for Introductory and Canadian Politics has undergone an exciting change of format. In this 8th edition, Mark Charlton and Paul Barker have gathered together the best of their Crosscurrents collections-Canadian Political Issues, 7e; International Relations, 5e; and International Development, 1e-and now provide 14 issue selections in the new Editors' Choice. This continues to be a stimulating collection of essays that teaches students to think critically, analyze major issues of the day, and engage discussion. Each issue is explored by two leading authorities, each one presenting an alternative view of the issue in a yes/no debate format. The new Reader's Choice custom option allows instructors to select from 26 issues (including the 14 included in Editors' Choice) and build their own reader, suited to their course's specific needs.
