Why do public issues like the environment rise and fall in importanceover time? To what extent can the trends in salience be explained byreal-world factors? To what degree are they the product of interactionsbetween media content, public opinion, and policymaking? This booksurveys the development of eight issues in Canada over a decade --AIDS, crime, the debt/deficit, the environment, inflation, nationalunity, taxes, and unemployment -- to explore how the salience of issueschanges over time, and to examine why these changes are important toour understanding of everyday politics. Agenda-Setting Dynamics inCanada offers one of the first empirical analyses of theinteraction of the media, the public, and policymakers in Canada and,more generally, makes an important contribution to the study ofpolitical communications and policymaking well beyond the Canadiancontext.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[T]his concise and well-written book could certainly prove useful to scholars interested in agenda-setting, public opinion and policy studies ... this book may convince even the most skeptical students of politics to take agenda-setting seriously. Rating: ***** -- Daniel Beland, University of Calgary * Political Studies Review, 1:3 *
In the vast literature on agenda setting, this book is destined to become one of the top five publications. It will be a "must read" for anyone involved in this line of research, or for general readers interested in the formation of public opinion and public policy. -- Maxwell McCombs, Jesse H. Jones Centennial Chair in Communication, University of Texas at Austin
Soroka has produced by far the most detailed and sophisticated study to date of Canadian agenda setting ... his clear and concise discussion of the problematics and methods of studying agenda-setting has provided a significant contribution to the literature on the subject. -- Michael Howlett, Professor of Political Science, Simon Fraser University * Political Communication, 20, 343-344, 2003 *
