The first full-length treatment of Ed Broadbent's ideas and remarkable seven-decade engagement in public life Part memoir, part history, part political manifesto, Seeking Social Democracy offers the first full-length treatment of Ed Broadbent's ideas and remarkable seven-decade engagement in public life. In dialogue with three collaborators from different generations, Broadbent leads readers through a life spent fighting for equality in Parliament and beyond: exploring the formation of his social democratic ideals, his engagement on the international stage, and his relationships with historical figures from Pierre Trudeau and Fidel Castro to Tommy Douglas, René Lévesque, and Willy Brandt. From the formative minority Parliament of 1972-1974 to the contentious national debate over Canada's constitution to the free trade election of 1988, the book chronicles the life and thought of one of Canada's most respected political leaders and public intellectuals from his childhood in 1930s Oshawa to the present day. Broadbent's analysis also points toward the future, offering lessons to a new generation on how principles can inform action and social democracy can look beyond neoliberalism. The result is an engaging, timely, and sweeping analysis of Canadian politics, philosophy, and the nature of democratic leadership.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Edward Broadbent, Frances Abele, Jonathan SasPublisher: ECW PressPublished: 10/10/2023ISBN: 9781770417380Pages: 328Weight: 1.38lbsSize: 9.31h x 6.39w x 0.84d
