Canadian Political Structure and Public Administration, 4th edition, places the role of law enforcement in a larger political context, providing students with a practical overview of Canada's political structure and the administration through which its operation is carried out.

Written specifically for Police Foundations students, authors Geoffrey Booth, Laura Booth, and Andrew Rowley begin by exploring Confederation and the establishment of Canada's political structure; the Charter and its impact on individual and collective rights; the three levels of government and their functions; the evolution of government services in Canada, with a particular focus on law enforcement; and the effect of changing social realities on policing. The authors then shift their focus to public administration, explaining in simple terms its relevance to the political process; the stages of policy creation, implementation, and evaluation; and the structure of the public service and its relationship to government. The text concludes with a discussion of some benefits of political involvement, leaving students with a clear understanding of their role in Canadian society both as future law enforcement representatives and as private citizens.

A companion website provides additional materials, commentary, and updates on a variety of topics.
