In contrast with most literature on Canadian politics, this book resurrects the relevance of Canada's Parliament by examining what MPs do, why they do it, and what effect it has. Constituency Influence in Parliament examines the rules and conduct of Private Members' Business to assess the complex relationship between constituency representation and policy proposals. This revealing study shows that Members of Parliament pursue various types of goals in the legislature - not all of which focus upon parties or leaders - and each MP plays an important representative role in shaping policy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A first-rate book on Private Members' Bills, including their success rates, policy areas, and partisan and ideological breakdowns, supplemented by one-on-one interviews with members of parliament. Blidook's detailed and compelling analysis highlights the critical role these bills play in the representation process, and in Parliament itself.
- David Docherty, author of Legislatures
This splendidly crafted book not only provides valuable and original insights into Parliament and into the behaviour and influence of individual MPs, but also reaffirms the value of detailed empirical research into the Commons and, crucially, that Parliament matters. Essential reading for anyone interested in parliamentary government in Canada.
- Graham White, author of Cabinets and First Ministers
