The Law of Democratic Governing, 2nd ed. is a follow-up to Volume II of the original version of the book. It first establishes a comprehensive method of examining the workings of democratic government and governance by systematically classifying the institutions and processes of the modern state. It then examines each of the major aspects of democratic governing through the judgments of courts, as well as through other sources such as rulings by the Speaker of the House of Commons and case studies drawn from governmental practice. The book concentrates on Canadian examples. However, it also draws on material from the U.S., the U.K., Commonwealth, and other jurisdictions around the world. This book can serve as a useful companion to The Theory and Practice of Political Law, now also in its 2nd edition. Both books emphasize the importance of the linkages and interactions among public law, public policy and politics, united in the subject matter of political law.
