A new reference tool useful for Canadian studies is now
available in CD-ROM. The publication and compilation
was made possible by a grant from the Social Sciences
and Humanities Research Council of Canada. The biblio-
graphy contains about 30,000 citations to academic studies
published as articles, books, and essays in collectively
published works, theses, dissertations and data files.
It provides selective access to scholarly literature
in the field of Canadian "politics", published between
1960 and 1993, covering the time period from sixteenth
century to the present, with emphasis on the post-1945
period. The term "politics" is interpreted broadly and
includes related fields such as international relations,
public policy, public administration, political sociology
social psychology, political history, political geography,
political anthropology, constitutional law and industrial
relations. While it has been developed with a focus on
Canadian politics, within these confines, it is
of particular use in the study of Canadian history,
culture and society. The strengths of the bibliography
are in the following fields:

Federal-Provincial Relations
Constitutional Process
Political Parties (Federal & Provincial)
Electoral Studies
Provincial Politics
Economic Policy
Social Policy
Environmental Policy
Public Administration
Foreign Policy & Foreign Relations
Political Culture
Canadian & Quebecois Nationalism
Aboriginal Question
Gender and Politics
Language Question
Mass Media and Politics
Social Classes & Social Conflict
Social Movements & Social History

The bibliography is updated locally at the University of
British Columbia Library. Should it prove to be popular,
the CD version will be reissued annually.
