Allan Blakeney has been identified with Saskatchewan politics and government for forty years as a public servant, cabinet minister, premier, and leader of the opposition. A Rhodes scholar with an intellectual's perspective on governing, Blakeney brings a unique and valuable perspective to this study of political management. Presented in the form of a dialogue between the authors, the book provides a thorough examination of the roles of politicians and public servants and techniques of management in Westminster systems. What emerges is a sophisticated philosophy of statecraft that recognizes both politics and management, and underlines the importance of balancing the two. First published in 1992, Political Management in Canada is now available in a revised and updated edition. A new appendix shows how the book can complement the major political science and public administration texts currently in use in Canada.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Political Management in Canada makes a real contribution to our understanding of how politics and administration should mesh in a modern state ... Not only was Allan Blakeney a successful politician, he was a politician who understood ideas and management and, rarer still, who tried to implement his theories while in power.'

- Tom Axworthy - Canadian Public Administration

'Political Management in Canada is the only account that provides a serious and creative analysis of issues, design, and management of cabinets from a first minister's perspective.'

- Professors Graham White, Department of Political Science, University of Toronto, and Evert Lindquist, Director, School of Public Administration, University of Victoria
