The Crown in Canada, the institution of constitutional monarchy, for decades neglected or considered an irrelevant colonial relic, is now the object of sympathetic scholarly attention. Stephen Harper''s Conservative government has reversed the trend of its predecessors by giving the Crown a higher profile through royal tours, publications, and symbolic initiatives. The Evolving Canadian Crown assesses the Crown in Canada from a variety of perspectives, including federalism, First Nations, the constitutional role of the governor general, the use of the reserve power, honours and public liturgy, and the "Canadianization" of the Crown. Comparative analyses of the Crown in Australia and New Zealand complete the picture. As Queen Elizabeth II marks her Diamond Jubilee in 2012, The Evolving Canadian Crown provides a stimulating insight into a little-understood yet key component of Canada''s governance.
Jennifer Smith is professor of political science, Dalhousie University.
