At the close of their 44th annual conference in July 2003, Canadian premiers unveiled a five-point plan "to build a new era of constructive and cooperative federalism." The premiers' ambitious proposals - which included the creation of a Council of the Federation - and their assertion that, "the current dynamic of Canadian federalism is not working well enough for Canadians" may have come as a surprise to casual observers of the federal-provincial scene. After all, in the past four years the first ministers have announced a number of "landmark" agreements - starting with the Social Union Framework Agreements (SUFA) in 1999 and leading to the much-touted "health accords" of 2000 and 2003 - that were meant to establish more constructive and co-operative intergovernmental relationships in social policy. In all cases, however, the reality has fallen well short of the rhetoric found in official documents. Forging a workable social union is a continual challenge for a decentralized and multinational federation like Canada. According to the noted social policy and federalism experts who contribute to this volume, SUFA did not respond satisfactorily to this challenge, on a number of counts: it did not take into account Quebec's view of the federation; it did not help clarify the respective roles of each order of government in social policy; it did not produce effective rules to address the power balance in the federation; and finally, it did not engage citizens meaningfully in setting social priorities.

This book was shortlisted for the 2015 BSA Philip Abrams Memorial Prize. Comedy is currently enjoying unprecedented growth within the British culture industries. Defying the recent economic downturn, it has exploded into a booming billion-pound industry both on TV and on the live circuit. Despite this, academia has either ignored comedy or focused solely on analysing comedians or comic texts. This scholarship tends to assume that through analysing an artist’s intentions or techniques, we can somehow understand what is and what isn’t funny. But this poses a fundamental question – funny to whom? How can we definitively discern how audiences react to comedy? Comedy and Distinction shifts the focus to provide the first ever empirical examination of British comedy taste. Drawing on a large-scale survey and in-depth interviews carried out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the book explores what types of comedy people like (and dislike), what their preferences reveal about their sense of humour, how comedy taste lubricates everyday interaction, and how issues of social class, gender, ethnicity and geographical location interact with patterns of comic taste. Friedman asks: Are some types of comedy valued higher than others in British society? Does more ‘legitimate’ comedy taste act as a tangible resource in social life – a form of cultural capital? What role does humour play in policing class boundaries in contemporary Britain? This book will be of interest to students and scholars of sociology, social class, social theory, cultural studies and comedy studies.

Forrest Capie is an eminent economic historian who has published extensively on a wide range of topics, with an emphasis on banking and monetary history, particularly in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, but also in other areas such as tariffs and the interwar economy. He is a former editor of the Economic History Review, one of the leading academic journals in this discipline. Under the steely editorship of Geoffrey Wood, this book brings together a stellar line of of contributors - including Charles Goodhart, Harold James, Michael Bordo, Barry Eichengreen, Charles Calomiris, and Anna Schwartz. The book analyzes many of the mainstream themes in economic and financial history - monetary policy, international financial regulation, economic performance, exchange rate systems, international trade, banking and financial markets - where historical perspectives are considered important. The current wave of globalisation has stimulated interest in many of these areas as ‘lessons of history’ are sought. These themes also reflect the breadth of Capie’s work in terms of time periods and topics.
