The related subjects of political legitimacy and system support are key theoretical concerns of students of democratic societies. They have received very little scholarly attention, however, because of the conceptual and methodological complexities they engender. In this book the authors address these concerns through systematic multivariate analyses of the sources, distribution, and consequences of variations in citizen support for key political objects in one such society, Canada. Although the authors do so within a comparative context, their primary focus is on Canada because it is one of the world's oldest democracies and is a country that has experienced support problems that periodically have reached crisis proportion. Many of the problems facing Canada are more extreme examples of difficulties that have vexed other democracies. This study helps illuminate both the conditions under which democracies in general are able to sustain themselves and those under which they could flounder.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: 'The book provides interesting information on an important political problem.' Administrative Sciences
"This landmark work, on the connection between citizen support and the continuity of representative democracy in Canada, covers multiple theoretical and empirical issues....The authors give flesh to their theories with data remarkable for their breadth, depth, and provenance. Breadth is represented by the range of issues encompassed, including evaluations of the economy and the government's role in its handling, along with citizens' personal economic grievances." The Journal of Politics
