Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Michael Mandel, critique, politics


Prospective readers would be forgiven were they to react in a dismissive manner to yet another book about the Charter. For any contribution in this now over-cultivated field, the question must immediately be asked: "Has the author brought a new vision, a fresh insight to his or her inquiries?" The answer in the case of The Charter of Rights and the Legalization of Politics in Canada is an unhesitant "Yes".
