– Doug Brown, co-author of Contested Federalism: Certaintyand Ambiguity in the Canadian Federation
A major contribution to the study of paradiplomacy and to Canadian foreign policy and federalism. This is a very important subject and, until now, there has been no study of all ten provinces. Kukucha’s book demonstrates a complete mastery of the cases and of the secondary literature, and is most impressive for its original research, parts of which are drawn from interviews with key actors.
