Ratings and reviews
This is the real world of Canadian politics and government, complete with all the secrets that your political science textbooks never mentioned. This is the way it works - vital reading for every informed Canadian. Book jacket. Additional Product Features Dewey Edition. The real essence of the book, peppered with opinion and anecdotes some quite surprising and entertaining is offering a view of the inside, as promised. The Goldenberg book also details the uneasy relationship between Chretien and Martin, outlining the elaborate steps the staffers for each had to take simply to set up meetings and make sure they came off smoothly.
And Goldenberg provides his account of the weekend Martin exited Chretien's cabinet, portraying Martin as indecisive at best as he tried to keep open the option of remaining finance minister after his own public remarks on his deteriorating relationship with Chretien had clearly made that impossible. The author's conclusions arise from a lifetime of personal experience and first-hand observation.
Part political science textbook, part memoir,The Way It Worksis a fascinating and sometimes brutally honest look at the way the federal government really operates.
Comprehensive. Reliable. Innovative.
The Way It Worksis a must-read for political junkies, students of history or anyone who aspires to government. However, it's also a good read for average Canadians who just want to get a better idea of the way their government really works. As Goldenberg describes it, the improbable relationship to settle separatism began badly. As was his wont, Chretien set out to put his new minister at ease with a humorous story.
Dion's response was startling: 'Prime minister, this is a serious matter, and we do not have time for joking around.
