Taking Social Research to the Larger World is the remarkable story of Professor Edward Harvey's twin-track career as a university professor and consultant specializing in social policy issues - a forty-year journey that blossomed with the dynamic Trudeau era and the search for ""The Just Society.""

With its richly detailed accounts of early life at Princeton, royal commissions, government task forces, and private sector assignments, this book will be a compelling read for anyone interested in policy, organizational change, equality issues, and the recent history of Canada's sometimes fragile confederation.

Dr. Harvey's journey is impeccably written and tremendously engaging. The author's abilities as a storyteller are finely tuned. Although biographical, this book is, in large part, a history of Canada too. The author has skilfully woven his life together with Canada's recent past, leading us through the strong post-war economic growth and the demographic explosion that came to be known as the baby boom, and on to the resulting dramatic social policy developments. Details of behind-the-scenes events and conversations add humour and realism to the ""characters"" in his account.
