Tonight! 7pm - Double launch with William J. Buxton and James S. McLean

Join us for drinks TonightThursday, December 5th at 7 pm as we celebrate the launch of two books published by McGill-Queens: James S. McLean's Inside the NDP War Room: Competing for Credibility in a Federal Election and William J. Buxton (ed.)'s Harold Innis and the North: Appraisals and Contestations.

Harold Innis is widely understood as the proponent of the "Laurentian school" of historiography, which mapped Canadian development along an East-West axis. Harold Innis and the North turns the axis North-South by examining Innis's intense and abiding interest in the North, and providing new perspectives on this seminal figure in Canadian political economy and communication studies.

A vivid, first-hand account of campaign strategizing, Inside the NDP War Room offers insights into the NDP breakthroughs of 2011, the full meaning of Quebec's "orange wave," and the future of a party preparing for a new reality.
